Honoring All That Has Been

Written by Teresa Phelps Martin

On August 21, 2021

Goodbyes are sacred and give us a chance to honor what has been – as that moment won’t ever happen again. They are the initiatory  step that helps us make way for what is yet to come. Your brilliant life resides in integrating all the parts of your life into the whole of yourself.

When was the last time you paused and acknowledge the passing of the day? The end of your workout? The completion of a meal or gathering with family. Sometimes goodbyes are unbearable and there are times that they go completely unnoticed. Yet each moment feeds into our vitality. Maybe even think on how many times you have wanted to skip out on the end of a yoga class…


This is key. Recognizing what would have been involves the notion that you had a dream, an intention, and now you have reached the moment where it is dissolving. We want to remember that there is still so much opportunity and potential. Yet your dream deserves the recognition of all that you put forward and allow for acceptance by honoring what was. It can be as simple as mindfully crossing a threshold when you leave (or enter your house). It can be stepping outside, looking at the sky and offering gratitude that your feet are on the ground. Or perhaps it is a big ole ugly cry where you wonder if life will ever be the same again.

Allowing for a ritual around closure is essential to clearing the way for new energy to refill the emptiness.

You have probably heard of the rear view mirror imagery. Where it is all in the past – yet you can still see where you have been. Like so many where we are headed looks very different than where we have been. Within my own personal journey I have spent some time reflecting on how many of us are hungry to either return to what was, what we thought it was supposed to be, or eager to move forward and let the past be a dust cloud settling in our footprints.

Which direction resonates for you? Are you full of ambition and opportunities continue to fall into your lap? Are you stuck in the fog or murky waters curious yet uncertain what might bloom? Maybe you have not had a single element of your life change and you are simply wondering what the big deal is out in the world….


Where ever you find yourself, find time to honor all the many soul’s you have shared in the lessons of life – as they are our greatest teachers. Honor the ways the moments have supported you mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Appreciate the many adventures and all the education you have partaken to support your soul’s embodiment. There might even be a moment you recall in the journey that the wisdom and practice saved your life.

In this honoring you will discover a wisdom that you can carry forward into the next endeavor even if it is a bit of a mystery. 

We all are being asked to restructure our lives. While it may feel like you are standing in the fire, know that each and every one of us are on some level. We are all witnessing how much the entire globe is being forced to reengage with one another with a new level of awareness. The systems and structures that have supported us for so long are asking us to be more responsible for future generations. There is so much wisdom in what has gone before – especially when we honor all that has been. It is subtle and complicated yet simply ancient technology in a modern application.


Imagine you were presented with a map that could guide you to a bridge. Once you cross this bridge it brings you to an enchanting and mystical which offers a clue to the ways you can work with your own pain and suffering. For in our life’s journey we all encounter moments that make their mark – some celebratory and profound, others painful and traumatic.

What would be your response?

Would you question the journey?

Would you challenge your need to be at this crossroads?

Would you ask what the energy can do for you?

Or would you ask how you can support the energy?

Would you open your heart to a level of curiosity allowing for inquiry?

Would you be willing to be of service?

Would you say yes to support the healing of your own soul and those you encounter?


As I write this the moon is listening to the conversations of structure and beliefs. It is illuminating an area so far from the sun that has the darkness of the nights illuminated by a brilliant reflection of our own vitality. It is a moment where emotions are high as this is what allows for the breakthrough needed to find our way. Our paths become fully illuminated with a connection to the magnificence that shines for us all.

This region of the sky reminds us of how we can honor the grief of the collective unconscious by reconnecting to the highest. That we can recognize our own losses yet know that we are not alone. The dance of the lunar and solar energy give us major insights into our soul’s journey. Especially when we are willing to listen and open ourselves to new ways of articulating the wisdom within and be of service to the grand unfolding of our soul’s journey.

When you are deeply lost or mourning or just confused – the sky’s guidance holds answers in how to work with the energy of life and feel supported in your choices and endeavors.

Standing In Our Light

Standing in our light is no easy task especially when what we thought what would be is no longer. We can though pause and honor what we has been. Rather than honor what has been from a place of despair and disdain, we want to honor from this connection to what is being revealed.

Honoring from a vantage point that provides celebration for our efforts, a place of genuine appreciation for the opportunity to breathe life into our soul.

To get more clear on how you can ritualize the transition that we as humanity are undergoing, look to the moment you wore born and draw out the guidance based on your sun, moon and rising sign. Reading just your sun sign is fine, however know you are limiting it to just your ego. A big part of this journey is elevating our center of gravity from ego to soul!

Each soulscope is written straight from my heart. Take what serves you and leave the rest behind. To bring your soul to life and live with intention and purpose – book a soul session with me and discover your brilliance!
