How to Support Yourself When Moving Through Transitions

How do you support yourself during transitions? Do you ever wonder if you need extra support during a transition?

Some common transitional periods are leaving a job, moving to a new home, letting go of things or belongings, holding space for someone who is crossing over into the light, and moving into a new way of being or a new you. However, sometimes transitions can be hard to recognize.

When writing this blog, I was inside of a transitional time with a move and supporting a loved one crossing over to the light. I sat down to do a meditation to support myself through this transitional time, and I thought to myself, “What if others are going through a similar experience and could benefit from me sharing my personal meditation?”

Because transitions can present in many different ways, there can be a range of feelings that come with transition including shock, grief, anger, numbing, or wanting to check out or disassociate.  

For me, feeling the feeling of, “I can’t control this,” and “I am moving into the unknown,” has been a struggle for me to deal with personally. That is why, recognizing where you are in the transition process, how you feel, how you want to respond to the change, and determining whether you are connecting with yourself or disconnecting can help you better manage the process.

The question I ask myself is, how am I going to hold space for myself in this time of being in the in-between, and how can I stay connected and anchored? 

To help me answer these questions, I created a meditation, and I invite you to join me. I will be guiding us both through this meditation to support the in-between – the middle of a transition – and what might be surfacing. This healing will help you settle into the body so you will feel more connected and grounded.

If after watching the video, you feel the need to work with a healing professional to help you with this process, consider working with a healer from the School of Intuitive Studies. Oftentimes, various periods in our lives benefit from a one-on-one container of support. Each Healer has been trained by me extensively and carries their own natural healing gifts.

    Wendy, I just sat with your Transition Meditation and I had to share my thoughts.
    My heart awakening started in 2000 with major life events (involving dysfunctional family processing/events, divorce, loss of home, long illnesses and eventual death of my mother) happening in long on-going sequences that continued for about 7 years. My journey during that time was slow for me but powerful. As of the later few years, as I see others in my extended family struggle with some of the same issues I had and while also, I have become primary care-taker for the patriarch, other, deeper issues have now surfaced again for me. There is no turning them away, they are definitely to be dealt with!
    I have received multiple warnings the past several months of “get ready” and “prepare” for transition and it is here–I am in the midst of it! Such a flow of emotions, many tears and letting go with periods of release only to find myself once again halted and unable to “move” spiritually.
    My father is obviously at the end phase of his life at 94 and I can see him in a completely uncomfortable situation in every aspect of the term. For many years now I had thought that I was still being taught unconditional love for my dad only to realize this week that love was not the lesson but forgiveness! Forgiveness to my dad as well as to myself! This was such deep shadow work for me! I thought (in my head) that I had forgiven him, but I had not forgiven in my heart. And also to forgive my self for holding on to the “un-forgiveness” for so long.
    I relate so well to the wanting to run but not really being able to escape and seeing now that by staying and “being” I have once again moved into a new space! This space includes letting go of many obligatory conditions that I had placed on MYSELF. I realize I needed to watch my dad’s journey (as I have) and to be his loving daughter, (as I have), but I also needed to HOLD space for myself as I grew and continue to grow from this journey with him.
    Wendy, thank you for offering me a life-line and anchor in this in-between space. So many decisions for me concerning my father going forward. Thank you for leading my spirit into the present and for offering me a space to make these decisions from a place of worthiness and not fear! This is so very powerful that I can’t express…again, I thank you for your obedience and for giving so generously of yourself and your spiritual wisdom. I greet this moment with an open, receptive heart fully expecting new insight, hope and wisdom to continue as I revisit this meditation.
    With love and grace,
