Rebirthing Yourself

Feb 13, 2020

“You’re in a rebirth” is a popular phrase right now.⁠

It sounds so lovely — the idea we can be reborn and start fresh.⁠ The truth is... it’s scary AF.⁠ This was most of last year for me big time. The scariest work I’ve done in the 17 + years of personal work. ⁠

Yes, a rebirth can result in a new way of being, a new life and the beauty of getting from one place to another.⁠⁠ Yet, what we don’t think about are the painful contractions, the times we can’t see what's happening and the dizzying effect of a huge transition.⁠

If you find yourself in a place where you can’t see the light, you're feeling painful contractions and you're confused, then breathe and give yourself space. Don't make any big decisions when you're in this transitional period.

Gather people around you — not to tell you what to do, but to hear your wailing and to hold your hand as YOU do your job, which is to birth yourself from one place to another. No one but YOU can do this...and you CAN do it.⁠

Be strong yet gentle, be loving yet fierce and you will get through this.⁠

Are you in the midst of a rebirth?⁠
