Your Transition Energy: Keep Mind, Body, and Spirit in Sync

Fall transition time
Your transition energy affects your experience of change.

Today I want to talk about your transition energy.

What is it, and why is it important?

So, let’s look at a seasonal task that is looming — the transition into fall.

How might your transition energy impact this predictable change?

Your transition energy…

Seasonal transitions are a good place to start because they are predictable. We generally know approximately when they will arrive. And before they do, we often get little previews.

Lately, we’ve been having some chilly New Hampshire moments. Such moments, if you’re anything like me, will awaken your transition energy. Your thoughts turn to the transition into fall. 

It might be premature to actually begin the work of making the change, but your transition energy tells you that it’s time to start thinking about it.

Make transition plans.

Unlike sudden changes, transitions are planful processes. What this means, among other things, is that the power is in our hands to fashion your transitions in ways that make sense for you. 

Thinking that way transforms your transition energy. You see that transitions offer opportunities to reflect on and let go of what is past and to prepare for and welcome what lies ahead.  You may have noticed that many holidays take place at the time of seasonal transitions. Think of them as offering reflection points for enhancing your transition energy.

So, when approaching a planned transition I think of three foundational transition areas. They correspond to my mind, my body, and my spirit. Let’s explore each now.


Rational and grounded in adult energy, my mind is the engine of my transition planning.  I pull out my templates from the previous year’s transition into fall, review the tasks involved, and set aside the time to attend to each.  I keep track of what works and what doesn’t and record this on my templates for the following year.


Practical and concrete, this is where the rubber meets the road. These are the aspects of my transition that have to do with implementing the plans I have made. Grounded in my everyday life, I tend to tasks like putting away summer clothes (sorting and de-cluttering as I go).  I pull out fall and winter clothes and put my gardens to bed for the winter. Again, I cull and organize as I complete each task.  I am preparing my physical world for the coming seasonal changes.


This is where my transition energy is most clearly manifested. The physical changes I have made are all accompanied by reflection, gratitude, and anticipation. And there is also an aspect of letting go at each step of the process.  With appreciation, I look back on what has been and release it. With anticipation I think about what is to come. 

Pausing to reflect while managing transitional times always deepens and enriches the experience. Your transition energy is activated and ideas and insights bubble up, often in ways that you could never imagine or predict.

So, how are you thinking about your transition into fall?  And how are you feeling about this coming change?

And here’s more help…

Your life is busy. Whether it’s seasonal changes, work, vacation planning, or unpredictable events that intrude, you’re making decisions from the time you wake up to the moment you go to bed. And I don’t mean life-changing decisions. Most often, they’re the small, everyday choices — often pretty much the same choices over and over.

You might think that having choices would always be a plus. But in reality, too many choices can be exhausting. You might not even notice, because they are often so small. But all the decisions drain you and slow you down, sapping energy that you could be applying to other things.
