Loss and transition is not always easy. There’s constantly these checkpoint moments like figurative “deaths” that occur in life. It can be when you end a career, end a friendship, have kids moving out, have a job switch, or more. Yet, from that is an opportunity of birthing something new. This episode talks about how death springs new life.

My 9-day trip of hauling horses across the country was a very successful trip. Now that the horses are moved to start a new life, they can be in an environment that’s good for them and supports their overall well-being. I’m glad I went on this trip. I’m so inspired that I decided I’m now committing to new grounding principles that will help me move forward into my new life.

I’m here to spend quality solo time with you for EP84’s Wise Walk as we discover our True Stride. Certain things didn’t seem as important to me over the last few months, like cleaning my mail or spending time with my pups. I am ready to get back into a groove since I’m feeling more aware about my transition. It’s time to clarify my priorities, and create momentum that feels aligned to the new life I want ahead of me.

On our Wise Walk, I discuss with you the ways that death, in all forms, can spring new life. For me, I choose to prioritize my pups, my body, and my home as I make my way through this transition. You can hear how I am blending this commitment into my life, and use it to reflect on where you are in your life. Come with me as we reflect on these Wise Walk questions:

    • If you’re experiencing some kind of transition in your life, how will you shift your awareness to the opportunity of a new life as you move forward?
    • What became clear to you in this transition you are in?

It’s time to fully honor the evolution of your transition. Hold on to the priorities that help you build a new life, and don’t hesitate to share your choice with people in your support system. They can be the extra boost you need to stay aligned to your priorities.

Center yourself in the “now” to be present and set priorities for yourself, so you can be in alignment with who you are, who you want to be, and where you want to go. Spring into new life with these Wise Walk questions:

    • How are you holding yourself accountable to be committed to prioritize the needs you have now?
    • Where can you view loss as a catalyst for the new life coming?
    • What do you appreciate more now that your eyes are open to death creating new life?
