Sufficient Transitions: Assets Inventory (Part 3 of 7)

By Shea Adelson

An Asset Inventory is taking stock of our non-monetary or intangible assets, the resources we have internally in ourselves including: spiritual, psychological and physical, as well as the resources available to you from your family, your community, previous experience, alliances and networks. Often when we do this, we discover sources of support we were not yet aware of or parts of our life had not yet considered something to appreciate.

Sufficient Transitions: Mourning (Part 2 of 7)

By Shea Adelson

Consciously moving through a transition is an act of Sufficiency. If we flow through our change – accept the end, the murky gap, and the beginning of what is new – if we allow the change and all our feelings about it, if we do not resist, but honor what occurs as our unique process and response, then we are in Sufficiency. Mourning is the action of letting go, the active rewiring in our brain and of our habits. I assert that mourning, like any part of the transition process, is an act of sufficiency. Mourning’s function is to make room for something new to arise. To do this, we investigate and unpack our associations with the person, place or thing that we are letting go of and let go of those too. What are you making room for these days?

Sufficient Transitions: Change (Part 1 of 7)

By Shea Adelson

Transition is the way we come to terms with change, the process of ways of being and behaviors that move us forward in our lives from the time before the change to the time after, like a bridge. Making a conscious transition is an act of sufficiency. Transition is inherently an act of trusting, of allowing, of creativity. Transition is about flow. The act of letting go and the process of acceptance are in many ways spiritual actions, and they can bring us to a new place of understanding the world. Transition can help heal us, make peace with past wounds, and focus on our passions.
