Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens.

Major life transitions, (such as divorce, the kids leaving home, the loss of a loved one, job loss, being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, betrayal or business failure) can send us reeling emotionally. They can fill us with anxiety and leave us feeling empty, lost, sad, angry, lonely, scared, and depressed. As the outer roles fall away, it is not uncommon to hear ourselves saying, “I don’t know who I am anymore?” It’s like we’ve lost touch with something essential within ourselves.
We may even feel like we are going crazy as we shed the skins of our old life. Our friends get tired of hearing us as we hash and rehash our stories in our attempt to make sense of them. “Just get over it and move on,” they say. But as hard as you try, you just can’t seem “to get over it.”
That’s because your life is being transformed. Your old life is gone, but who you will become and how your life will unfold next is still unclear. In our goal oriented society it’s hard to find validation for this type of disintegration which only compounds the problem and leaves many individuals maneuvering major life transitions without the support, understanding, and validation that will allow them to let go so completely that who they are is transformed.
Instead the process is aborted and a person gets stuck in resentment or grief in way that doesn’t allow them to move forward in a healthy and expanded way. Or perhaps we find another relationship, or stuff, or addictive substances to curb what we feel and try to move on with our lives from there. But in the end it doesn’t work. What is needed to a total surrender to the process.
The good news is, is that major life transitions can become a doorway for bringing immense spiritual growth and insight into our lives. People, who have been through the deep inner journeys and lived to tell the tale, share that they have made their biggest spiritual leaps when their lives appeared to be falling apart.
But it is important to find guides who understand and know the terrain of this life/death/rebirth process. Colleen Russell, MATP, owner of Quest4Wholeness, is such a guide. Having been through many of her own deep initiations and transitions she understands all of the nuances that come with the territory. In fact it has become her life work for the last 20 years.
