Dealing with Midlife and Menopause….The Map

Midlife Crisis, Menopause, Perimenopause, whatever name you call it – the purpose is the same.  The purpose of midlife, menopause and perimenopause (if we are paying attention) is to assist us in the birth of our Soul.  Soul is the uniquely creative way in which we have been gifted to find meaning, purpose, connection and fulfillment in our lives and through which we are called to serve the betterment of our world.  The midlife journey consists of a complex, twisted, path which is everything but linear and once we think we have accomplished a certain task, healed a particular wound, it comes back again for another layer of healing.  In preparation for my upcoming course, Surviving Midlife, I have created a visual which demonstrates the labyrinthine journey of midlife (menopause and perimenopause).  In the spirit of Harry Potter, I call it the Marauding Midlife Map….because we often feel like thieves in the night as we sneak around trying to find our way through the midlife challenges (and opportunities).  The good news is that the more we surrender to the process of midlife, the more we can proudly proclaim, (again in Harry Potter Style)  “Mischief Managed!”

  1. He (Jesus) went on: “What comes out of a man is what makes him ‘unclean.’ For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.’” Mark 7:20-23

  2. Lord, I pray that You will go right now and touch my spouse/loved one’s hardened, calloused heart as they are blinded and deceived by sin, the lust of their eyes, by the world’s temptations and by the lies of the enemy. Lord, may You keep warning them to stop sinning over and over again in Your many divine supernatural ways. Only You can rescue my beloved husband or wife and I know You want them to cry out to You first and then come back to me, their waiting spouse and family. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
