“Some of our resistance to going into transition comes from our fear of this emptiness… Before we can find a new something, we must deal with a time of nothingness.”
~William Bridges 

 First seen on FaceBook in a post by The Spirit That Moves Me

I shared this on my FaceBook Profile during the Disseminating phase on June 6. Following my own advice to communicate my feelings and what I’ve learned from my experiences. I shared after experiencing cycles of resistance to change, I am grateful that I am in the midst of one of those transitional spaces (a time of emptiness) and finding it quite enjoyable.

Looking back, I see that I could have improved my communication by describing what I see in this image.

At first glance, the image looks dark. A woman standing in what appears to be shark infested water. Upon a closer look, you can see the sharks are an illusion. There is nothing to fear. They are goldfish in disguise. Wearing a swim cap and a lei of  two goldfish and green seaweed, the woman stands in an erect yet relaxed posture; staring ahead as if in a trance.

Most meaningful to me is the Balsamic Moon in the background, with just the hint of sunrise on the horizon. All is Good.

Symbolism of the goldfish:

“The Japanese recognized these fish not just for their beauty, but for their ability to transform the observer into otherworldly states of perception. These altered states of perception ultimately lead to the attraction of high energy – and this manifests in the form of prosperity of all kinds in our lives.” Avia Venefica
