Her time well-spent
Hatching seedling ideas
And tiny cracks of insight,
Bubbling up from within,
Forming the foundation
Of her internal empire,
Leading her way through fire
And cooling into mountains

I often think of liminality as akin to being in the middle of an ocean, adrift and far from the shore.
As a water type, water is calming to me, even in the midst of uncertainty.
But I’m finding that sometimes liminality feels more like lava bubbling up from a volcano.
Like fire that comes from within the earth without warning and creates entirely new continents once it cools.
In this space is the power to mold, to create, to fire internal resources into something new.
And it also requires trust and letting go.
Except it’s hard to trust when you know you might get burned in the process.
I’m also finding that although liminality feels lonely, it’s best not spent alone.
Because there is strength in connection.
And power in the synergy that happens in the energy of others.
Strength and power to build mountains from the ground up.
How are you navigating liminality today?
