When we think about opening to moments and transitions, it helps if we feel grounded. If we feel like we’re just hanging out on a limb, opening is rough. But if our feet are firmly planted on the ground, opening is easier.
When I think of feeling grounded, it helps me to go deep inside myself, to that star in my heart, to that part of me that is always there and never changes. Reconnecting there helps me feel present and open to moments and transitions. Obviously, this is easier said than done because it can feel like there are layers separating me from this star. And ironically, opening to whatever is separating me is again the way to get to the grounding.
There is much wisdom in opening. Our hands show us this wisdom daily. Tightly closing our hands takes work and doesn’t allow for receiving. Opening them takes less work and allows for gifts to come. I invite you to follow the wisdom of your hands as you open to moments and transitions.
