WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE NAVIGATING THE ERA SHIFT TOGETHER?
As the times intensify, our co-sensing seems in no hurry to leave the liminal space where nothing is certain, nothing is clear, and everything that we had thought was important to us seems to be on hold.*
The word “liminal” comes from the Latin root, limen, which means “threshold.” The liminal space is the “crossing over” space – a space where you have left something behind, yet you are not yet fully in something else. It’s a transition space. It seems that our collective adventuring into the wetlands during our last Portal Day brought us squarely into this liminal space and it is premature to seek to leave it. As within, so without, the goings-on in ‘outer reality’ seem to mirror this truth back to us. As individuals we are all in our own experiences and versions and degrees of intensity of this phenomenon, which is fractal and multidimensional.
This rite of passage – we come out a mature species, or we don’t come out at all. (Colin Campbell, quoted from the Practice Guide).
Spending time in the liminal space also seems to be a key to successful rites of passage. There is inner work to be done, transmuting our fear, impatience, and other habitual defense patterns into pure golden silence and presence that is fully available to what is arising in the cosmos. What (and who) emerges from the liminal space is beyond our capacity to imagine.
What if we’re needing to learn to be in the liminal space for much longer than we expect – maybe even our entire lifetime?
