I would like to shed some light on a state of BEing that I refer to as “the void”. This state of BEing may be experienced as a feeling of emptiness. But in reality, is a field of infinite possibilities. That feeling of emptiness or “nothingness” is where we gain clarity, getting clearer direction regarding our intentions, the desires of our heart. Infinite possibilities to create the reality we wish to experience. What one has to begin to understand is that life is not happening to you. As powerful co-creators, you are in fact creating your own reality. The questions is whether you are doing this in a conscious manner. Your beliefs and old patterns shape your reality. The Universe is neutral but all-loving. It wants you experience what you desire to experience. That is why we must become aware and very clear about what our hearts desires truly are. Set the intention for this to be your experience and let the Universe co-create with you to achieve them.
We have been taught that “the void” is a place we want to (avoid) at all cost, but in actuality, it is a state of BEing that literally can create miracles. Our emotions (or lack there of) are indicators, sign posts if you will, to inner depths that most fear to tread. It is time to release the fear of opening up to our feelings, as they are the cornerstone of our existence. There is a natural ebb and flow to life, but we have been taught that we must only show how happy we are, that everything is fine. But if we cannot express our authentic feelings (this includes the times we may not feel as upbeat) this creates an imbalance, and our body will naturally begin to try to create balance. So the next time you may feel as if you are in “the void”, sit with it, meditate, see what wisdom it has to offer you.
The month of July was one of BEing in deep inner connection. There was no where else to go but inward as July had the feeling of BEing in a void. I can only describe it as not feeling connected to anything external, nothing to “latch” on to, so to speak. That left me no choice other then to go within and connect with my inner BEing (my soul) who I had to trust was leading me to where I needed to BE. This can be a scary feeling, as the way I use to handle these feelings no longer worked. It was as though everything I tried to do was blocked. All around me I kept seeing and hearing the word surrender. Well as stubborn as I can BE, even I had to finally do just that, surrender. Let go and let God. Apparently my soul had other plans for me other then the ones I was trying to externally make happen. Okay, okay soul, I hear you.
I have to admit when I finally let go and stopped trying to push against what felt like an invisible brick wall, I experienced such a profound sense of peace. My frustration was gone. BEing in the void feels like BEing in a row boat in the middle of the night, with no oars to steer, but trusting the flow of water (my inner compass) taking me to a place of the unknown. What! Not know what is coming next! That feeling I have noticed seems to send most people into pure panic mode. And I admit though I was not panicking, I was feeling some anxiety. But once I finally listened to the guidance I was receiving to just surrender, as I said before, peace. Don’t get me wrong, in the month of July I was BEing in a space of creativity with my drawings, connecting with nature, doing things that spoke to my heart.
So here I AM in this moment in time and feeling that things are shifting. I AM facing the unknown head on, and instead of feeling anxiety, I feel excited. I AM just going to hang on for the ride!
