June 2013–Embracing Changes to Take Us To New Heights

life changes Some of us may be dealing with some hard truths from last month around old beliefs, and some are in deep assimilation of choices and life changes. Most of us are reeling a bit from May’s many lessons around manifesting.

We are either exhausted from dealing with huge amounts of energy, or feeling overwhelmed, confused and unfocused. Some of us are stuck in the logjam of our worries and obsessions, and some are feeling inspired by the amazing possibilities that have opened up to us and are ready to move forward.

Whatever state you are in as we enter June, TRANSITION is the underlying theme for the month.


In the dictionary it is described as “the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another”. The time of transition is what follows a decision or choice or situation change that leads to you doing something different. In order to honor the transition that you are in, you need to look at what commitments or decisions you recently made that that you are now processing and assimilating the results of.

Transition time is an active time but can appear passive. Transition requires a suspension of doing things as usual in order to allow for a new energy or pattern to solidify. Feeling unfocused, tired, or spaced out are all legitimate states of being in transition. It is common also to feel somewhat unmotivated and to need more rest than usual. It is a time of assimilation and can be rather instinctive.

Not everyone will be experiencing transition in all parts of life. Some of you may be in transition in just one small part of your life and the rest may be very stable and manifesting itself beautifully. Others of you may have a huge life change, transition going on where you have had to let go of something really significant and the future is not entirely clear. You may be feeling a level of anxiety that makes it difficult to trust the transition.

If you are in transition it means that you are leaving one situation or way of being behind and entering into some new situation or way of being. The nature of transition means that you may not know what the new situation or way of being is quite yet as it may not have manifested completely in a tangible way. It is important that you focus first on the completion of what you are transitioning out of.

Completion requires pulling all of your energy out of what you are leaving behind. Especially if you have been in resistance to something or have had a negative relationship with it, you must neutralize the charge and pull yourself out of the situation or way of being completely.

The theme of manifesting in May has brought up a lot of issues inspiring choices for various types of life changes. Many are old belief patterns and limitations that have blocked and restricted our ability to manifest. There is definitely movement afoot for changing that which has held us back and the ensuing transition time needs to be honored and respected as a necessary passage. The most important lesson is to allow whatever time it takes to complete the transition. Some will be faster than others.

There are some of you that are masters of transition. In fact you are so good at it that you never seem to move out of transition. This can be due to having too many incomplete completions, too many roots in the past and too many past patterns still running the show. Your conscious mind may be ready to move on but there may be work to do on another level to fully disengage from what is holding you back. If you have been in transition for far too long, you may be sitting on the fence and swimming in ambivalence about completing something from the past. It may be time for you to revisit the patterns regarding your identity and to change your relationship with your past in some way.

There are others of you that resist transition at all costs. You procrastinate and dig your heels in for fear that change will be something you cannot handle. This is especially true for those of you with stubbornness. If you resist or fear the change that will bring about transition, start with some baby steps and allow transition in small increments to begin with. Sometimes to clear a logjam you need to move one log at a time.

The purpose of these times we are in is to become more comfortable with transition since change always brings about transition and the one thing we can be certain about these days is change. So embrace personal life changes and change about completing with the past and trusting the future.

How the month shows up:


This is a very powerful time to honor any transitions that affect you personally. Consider that your relationship with yourself is in transition. What have you believed in the past about yourself regarding what you were capable of or limited to? In May you glimpsed either what was possible or what was impossible and that has triggered some kind of transition in your belief system. You might be experiencing any of the following: hope, fear, inspiration, excitement, expansion, dread, disappointment, despair, gratitude or neutrality. Whatever you are experiencing it is part of the transition.

It is important during this month to evaluate what is in transition in your life and what is not. If you are in transition, what are you transitioning out of? The more conscious you can be about this process the more powerful it will be. Remember that it is the relationship that you had with something that is changing. And it is helpful to the process if you can complete what you are moving away from by making sure you release any personal patterns of energy the past still might hold. (You can get help with this on our June Support Mp3)

You have an opportunity this month to work through any issues that have come up for you recently regarding how and what you are manifesting in your life. If you have made recent choices that have thrown you into an overwhelming time of transition, allow the time and space you need to assimilate this change.


When relationships are in transition, they lose their footing for a period of time. This month many relationships will be in transition and their form or purpose will be redefined. Until they land in a new configuration, they may feel ungrounded and confusing. Until clarity comes, it is best not to try and define too strongly what a relationship is or is not in your life. If someone is in your life, it is for a reason and that is all you have to know. Allow a higher purpose to guide where the relationship wants to land.

The principle of completing the past is very important in the area of relationship. As you transition out of one relationship container make sure you have released any energy that has gone into creating the pattern of the previous container.

Relationship is not only with other people. This is a good time to examine where you are in transition in your relationship with all aspects of your life. Where are you in transition? Have you completed and dissolved the old one?


Many businesses, partnerships, companies, and work structures may find themselves in transition this month. Transition always feels unstable, however it is often the road to greater stability in the end. There is still quite a bit of movement in this area of business and finance and the theme of manifesting for May is still working its way through, prompting transition where change occurs.

Patience is required as well as trust in the right timing. IF a situation truly feels stuck, it may be time to stimulate transition by making a radical change. This is also an area where completion and the release of old dreams, plans, intentions and structure that is no longer viable will be very important to consider and take action on. Anything that holds old energy will hold you and your project back.

In terms of partnerships, if one person is stubbornly holding on to “what is was supposed to be” instead of transitioning to a new place, you may have to reconsider the configuration of the partnership. Restructuring something is always a good way to move into transition.
