A transition is the point where one thing or state changes to another.
Birth & Death are transitions to and from the physical plane. If you accept that your essence of being is infinite with the ability to transition between the physical & the spiritual, then there is no place for fear.
Instead of resisting and fighting these profound transitions, you can embrace and welcome them with excitement and joy.
Imagine a world where death is celebrated like birth and birth is revered like death!
A transition is often a time of weakness and vulnerability. This is only temporary as your true power lies on the other side and all that is required is persistence and patience.
For the labouring woman, transition occurs between the cervix opening and the urge to push. Many women report feeling emotional, vulnerable and overwhelmed. They often feel like they can't do it and it is a time where encouraging support is required. The baby, too, must feel vulnerable and apprehensive as their journey to be born reaches it's climactic stage.
People who have observed death, particularly of the aged or ill, report that at the time the person transitions from life, a contented and peaceful expression passes over their face relieving their facial features of worries, age or pain.
Next time you experience a transition, albeit a minor one, remember to embrace it with excitement and joy and leave fear behind!
