The Sacred Liminal Space: Between the Familiar & Completely Unknown

February 17, 2022

The liminal space is the in-between, the transitionary period, that awkward and uncomfortable phase when you’re on the precipice of moving towards the new, but haven’t quite arrived yet.

It’s when you’re facing the unknowns and your destination, or at the very least the path to get there, leaves you with far more questions than answers. The moments when you’re so ready to close the old chapter but the new isn’t quite ready, testing your patience.

And yet, there is so much growth to be found in this space.

These are the sacred grounds upon which transformation is created, when you’re closer than ever to find what you’ve been searching for, letting go of everything that’s been holding you back, or being more open to love.

This is where the magic happens, even when it feels like nothing is happening at all.

Today we’re talking:

  • How to navigate the liminal spaces that can appear in your life
  • Practicing looking ahead with hope
  • Appreciating this period of time for all of the gifts that it offers, and why life is not on pause even when it seems nothing is changing
  • Trusting that beautiful things are unfolding you, even when you can’t quite see them taking shape yet.
