Emptiness Preempts Fullness

Kimberism: "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." Melody Beattie After a long year of transitioning from a life where everything was comfortable, the house, the work and the community of long time friendships, into the transition of starting over in all arenas, I became increasingly aware of an interesting dynamic. When life feels seemingly empty there is plenty of room for vast possibilities. Seasons of barrenness are in fact what preempt growth and fullness.

In the book Transformissional Coaching by Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl they describe the process of change as:

Stage 1: Stability-where life is working fine to....

Stage 2: Discontinuity-when the old way is working less well, to...

Stage 3:-Disembedding-when we feel the current system is unsupportable, to...

Stage 4: Transition-when we haven't yet left the old or quite entered the new, to...

Stage 5: Reformation-when we decide to go for it in the new world.

Upon moving to our new home where the back yard was totally bare, I began having visions of what could be. I saw trellises of flowers climbing up the back fence, and lavish flowers cascading throughout the yard. Suddenly the barrenness of the back yard wasn’t so daunting. I understood that rather than contriving to manufacture and fill the void in certain areas of my life, I could allow room for new growth and vision to emerge organically.

If you are in a season of transition where you’re life appears to be gapping with emptiness, look past the physical into the creative realm where all possibility exists. Open yourself up for a paradigm shift where new things will emerge. Let your barrenness make way for growth that ultimately will fill and reform your place of emptiness. © Copyright 2011 Moxie Me Institute, BE U LLC.
