Episode 111 Letting go and new beginnings
Episode 111 Letting Go and New Beginnings, Returning to self and honouring the natural journey of conclusion
Podcast co-hosts Christine Pensa and Emma Kupu Mitchell connect in this episode as their *final collaboration as co-hosts. As Emma put so beautifully, this is not an ending, but a returning back to self and honouring the authenticity of life (and it’s natural cycles).
In this episode we shared, through technical glitches and tears, how this parting is mirrored by nature. How there is grief and also great expansion in leaving something behind and opening up into the new. Emma brought in the metaphor of the pruning she is doing in her own life in order to allow the space for her new pathway to appear. Christine shared the metaphor of the original Wayshowers who tuned deeply into their divine knowing to travel thousands of miles across “uncharted” waters. Both roads leading to how we can take care of our sacred selves as we navigate this new world unfolding before our eyes.
*Christine will continue to explore the juicy topic of sacred self care and coming back into alignment with our own deep knowing of how to way show for ourselves. It is her intention to mirror back what listeners are looking for in each now moment.
Emma will continue to be a part of Christine’s heart and of the listeners, and we trust that as her path unfolds in beautiful new directions, she will be available to share some of that expansion with all of us.
The beautiful poem Emma shared toward the end of the episode is titled, A Deeper Existence, from the book Soul Bird by Deborah Anne Quibell;
A Deeper Existence
Follow your fatigue.
It will lead you on a winding road
toward the truth you’ve been avoiding.
Busy is not a way to be.
It is a condition that strips you
of meaningful pauses.
It whips you around
in a bowl of self-importance
and pours you out
as a thin layer
upon the surface of your life.
But you seek a much deeper existence.
You seek the substance of silence,
and a slow, simmering awareness.
So please, my darling,
Put down your knife,
Pick up your spoon.
And give your heart the apron.
