In my last article, I talked about the “cocoon phase” for introverts, and how to know if you’re in one right now. Over the past few years—and especially the past few months—I’ve seen a definite pattern with my clients and students and the theme of life transition.
Since the pandemic, many of us INFJs and INFPs are coming out of a long period of reflection, and an intense amount of upheaval. Some of us have lost jobs or quit jobs, some of us have ended long-term relationships, or decided to seek a partner after a long time of being on our own. And some of us have picked up and moved to a different city, state, or a different country altogether, or we’re considering such a move right now.
These kinds of life transitions are common for intuitive introverts who are ready to open a new chapter in their life, and this can all be very exciting. However, it can be very scary, too. What usually happens when you begin making big life transitions is that you feel enthusiastic at first, and then you get hit with a big wall of fear.
It doesn’t help that many people are feeling fear about the future right now, not just intuitive introverts. The world seems crazy at the moment, and so if you’re in the middle of a big life transition, you may be asking yourself:
What’s going to happen to the economy?
What’s going to happen to the world?
What’s going to happen to me in this crazy world if I change all these things in my life?
Can I really make what I’m envisioning in my mind, happen in real life?
I talk more about this in the video below:
I’m teaching a new class, starting on April 25, called Soul Shift, and we’re going to be working with this topic of big life transition and reconnecting with our soul purpose here. We’ll be learning how to tune into our intuition to follow the path that is right for us, and how to take action steps forward to activate the energy of our new life chapter. We’ll also be connecting with each other and finding support in the group.
I know it can be really hard for INFJs and INFPs to initiate connections with others. It’s tempting to stay hunkered down in your house when a lot of big changes start to hit your life. But now is not the time to stay in hermit mode. If you’re feeling the call to actually start listening to what your soul wants out of life, then one of the best things you can do is to start to take small risks by joining things and meeting new people who are on your same wavelength. This new class is a great way to do that.
I’ll be sending out one last video in this series about the class, so please make sure you SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel HERE to get the notification about that video, and please SUBSCRIBE to my newsletter HERE to get the updates on when registration for this class opens. If you have any questions, you can send them to me here.
Hopefully I’ll see you there!
