Rites of Passage ~ Soul Mapping our Journey through Time

POO
Being aware of the 4 Phases of the Moon cycle is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to access guidance and to recognize your own personal rites of passage playing out in the phase's of your own life.

A rite of passage is an important event that marks the transition from one phase of life to another. 

Something that happens in our life that carries us, and in effect transitions us, into new awareness and new life roles.  When we honor these passages and events in our lives it can greatly impact the quality of our lives and add to living in more meaningful and fulfilling ways. We can grow gracefully from one phase of maturity to the next through this human experience. 

Rites of passage are situations like Birth, Marriage, Sickness, Death, Divorce, New Job/end of job, New Home, Beginnings/endings of friendships/family relationships, great successes/great losses, etc.  These experiences initiate us into meeting with deeper aspects of who we are.  It is "The Hero's Journey" ~ Joseph Campbell 

We are continuously being initiated  by the Spirit of Life through challenges, ordeals, obstacles, heartbreaks, and various powerful “test” of who we are.  

To go through an initiation is to be asked to go through a series of experiences and pass 'the test’ along the way that will transition you onto the next phase, or course of your life.  In essence these experiences, or initiations will show you who you are in relationship to your life.  “Pass or Fail” is not always so evident in the moment.  It is mostly about how much responsibility you are taking and how much willingness to accept and contribute of yourself in the highest degree possible. 

When we live with this awareness of the transitional nature of our lives and the cyclical pattern of phase's we  live through, we are given the opportunity to be intentional with the rite of passage moments we are experiencing. 

We can learn to recognize 'the test' and harness in on all the potential power and guidance available to assist us through life’s transitions.  With this awareness we can consciously transmit the essences of the energies we want to carry and walk through life with.  In being intentional through consciously honoring and creating ceremonies around our rites of passage (with ourselves or in community) we can contribute to creating more supportive outcomes for the whole of life. 

Being aware of the 4 Phases of the Moon cycle is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to access guidance and to recognize your own personal rites of passage playing out in the phase's of your own life. 

When we aim to align ourselves with the natural rhythm's of life we come to bare witness to the phenomenal synchronistic patterns at work.  We can come into a greater understanding of the oneness and unity between all things.  And the wonder and mystery of Timing can begin to offer a bit more support along our journey.
