“Transformation literally means going beyond your form.” –Wayne Dyer
Two steps forward, one step back… Every single major change I’ve made in my life has moved long those lines, and what I’ve observed tells me that’s fairly consistent. We want to book out an afternoon, deal with our “issues,” and check it off our list like so much laundry that’s been washed and dried and folded neatly in a stack. When life doesn’t work that way, we get frustrated, self-critical, and dejected. For what?
Just because you declare yourself “done” doesn’t mean the issue won’t revisit. That’s not only normal, but frankly necessary for fully integrating lessons. Fine-tuning, crossing your t’s and dotting your I’s, you’re reaching a higher level of mastery with each new challenge. And with each new challenge, you’re perfecting your performance.
Yes, Pluto recently went direct. Opportunity to flush out some of the muck that has been weighing us down. But even so, transformation isn’t completely in a clean, straight line. It takes dedication, perseverance and resolve to grow. You’re becoming a different person, and it’s only over time that new skin really starts to fit.
So when you see old issues revisit in a more subtle form, don’t despair. That’s indication you’ve mastered the basic level and are ready to step up your growth. It’s not a failure, but indication of success. Keep working it!
Do you see this pattern in transformations?
