Today’s blog offers a glimpse and some support as we face this current period of Universal change. Big changes are coming….but for now…..we must surrender to the VOID!
Entering the Void
In case you haven’t yet noticed, we are in the void. A time many of my peers are referring to as the “wormhole.” I like to think of it as the birth canal. We have planted our seeds. We have sown our dreams. We have networked, promoted, advertised, shared all we are and all we hope to be. We have dreamed the dreams of a world we want to live in and the people we want to be in that world. Since the beginning of 2015, and most especially the early days of March, we have been busy, freneticly overcome with creative and creating energy. Then suddenly, everything came to a halt. Now, there is nothing we can do but WAIT! Like a seed waiting in the dark soil for the perfect amount of water, sunlight and warmth (and the turning of the year) to coax us out of our shell, we wait.
Nothing and Everything Happens in the Void
The void is a strange time of nothing. Waiting. Being. Resting. Recuperating. Recovering. Restoring. But while the void often feels like nothing, there is in fact, much going on. Resting. Recuperating. Recovering. Restoring. Like the purgatory of Christian-olde (in case you missed the bulletin, the Vatican recently erased purgatory from the books), the void is a time where our past is revisited and every lasting bit of remaining debris is removed. Anything that is not supportive of the new life that is waiting to be born after the end of the void, is being wiped away. And yes indeed, we are feeling it! GRIEF. ANGER. RESENTMENT. Old wounds, old betrayals, past losses and disappointments, are all coming around for one final look. The void is also a time of healing.
Surrender to the Void
Our task, as we wait here in the void is to SURRENDER. Don’t try to start any new projects or make any major decisions. The universe will not support them anyway and if you try, you will only be smashing your head against the brick wall of a world not yet ready for your gifts. In this state of immobility, be attentive to the anxiety, impatience, and restlessness that will arise because you have nothing “to do.” If you are bored, read a book, watch a playful movie, return to the mundane – clean the house, do the mending, sweep your basement, rake the yard. In doing these things, you are clearing the way for the new life that will begin to blossom somewhere around Easter. And if healing opportunities show up, be present to them. When old pain shows up, be with it and let it move through. As we show up to our pain, show up to the feelings around that pain – fear, sorrow, rage, etc., – we are allowing that pain to be healed. Ultimately, our job while hanging out in the void is to take care of ourselves – to love ourselves – to tend to the most vulnerable and fragile parts of our Soul and in doing so, we are creating a solid foundation upon which the new life is coming can take root, mature and bear much fruit.
Hang on…..the new life you have been promised and that you have been waiting for is almost here!
