Many on the Ascension path come to a place or a rest stop in which they feel an emptiness, or a void. It can manifest as sadness or depression or a feeling of nothingness, or loss.
This space is a natural part of the ascension process. The temptation will be to do something to get out of it. The temptation is to pull in some drama, either in the form of a relationship, or with your health or finances, or another issue. But you find that’s just a distraction for facing the inevitable. The void must not be avoided. It is a time and space designed to bring you deeper into your true self. Most of you reading this would agree that most people are running around, keeping themselves chronically busy, in order to justify their existence, or to avoid feelings. Even the ones who claim they need two or three jobs to keep themselves afloat are really just running from themselves. It’s not conscious on their part, because they, for the most part, are still asleep to their deeper self.
So as difficult as it is, it is better to just welcome the void, which actually isn’t a void, in fact it is filled with activity. Within the void there is an opportunity to really be with you. It’s your soul calling to you, inviting you closer. And when you become entangled with other issues, other people, you can’t find the clarity you need. This is not about stopping all interactions with others, but it is about not becoming entwined with them, and you know the difference. I have had to pull back my involvements a few times with others when I sensed that happening.
Others are a mirror for our own selves. If they seem needy, maybe we are not tending to our own needs. Just pay attention to your motives for becoming involved with a person or a situation. Is it because it feels uplifting and supportive of who you are? Or is it coming from a place of boredom or loneliness? It can be challenging while still living in a world in which others are conditioned to do things and be with others from a place of lack.
Sometimes when you just allow that space, you begin to feel creative, and then it’s your choice to take inspired action on how you want to express that creativity. Sometimes I find myself wanting to create a new song, or just fiddle around with my blog design, nothing major but it satisfies the creative need to express. Other times I just sit around and watch Netflix and eat something yummy. There’s really no right or wrong, it just comes down to personal preference.
So the void is a temporary space in which you will find an ever deeper connection to yourself and you will experience a deeper love for yourself, and from there a more profound love for others, no matter what path they decide to take.
Whatever feelings come up in the void, whether it’s sadness or anger or shear boredom, honor those feelings. Don’t over analyze them. Just feel them, and then they will transmute. They may not even be yours to begin with. And, interestingly, even if they originated with you, even if their source is an event from this lifetime or a past one, THEY ARE STILL REALLY NOT YOURS! Feel that for a moment. You took those on from others around you. And then you made them your own. The void is an opportunity to just allow these emotions to come up and out. They no longer need to reside in your body. Because holding them in your body ties up your physical and spiritual energies. You probably heard the expression, “Emotions are energy in motion.” That is what they are. They are just energy in motion. Can you trust that your new body of consciousness can ” process” these emotions for you, and all you need to do is just allow them to move through you?
So dear fellow ascenders, if you find yourself in a void, bless it, oh, you can curse it too. All feelings are allowed. But recognize its significance for you on your spiritual path. You have done nothing wrong. It is a time of integration and regrouping. It won’t last forever, but it will go more smoothly if you just go with it, don’t resist it.
Resist the temptation to take on your old role of caretaker for others. Lightworkers are prone to attracting energy leeches, and it takes discernment to recognize who they are. Because of our empathy we feel others’ pain, and want to soothe it, even if they themselves don’t recognize it. But those days are done! If we are to take our ascension, our enlightenment seriously, that role has to go. And it is, because in the new energy it has no place. But letting go is not always easy. Often we identified with that role, and in the void we can feel lost without it.
But we are recognizing that we can now play that role with our own selves. Taking care of ourself takes priority now. And that makes us the leading edge role models for others to do the same. So, enjoy the void.
