No amount of regret changes the past.
No amount of anxiety changes the future.
But any amount of gratitude changes the present.

Wise Words: The Void

As Friday drew nearer and nearer and I wasn’t hearing anything (like I usually do) for the post, I suddenly realized THAT was the focus. The void. Sometimes we’re just in the void.

In my experience, the void is the place of nothing, neutral, zero…which becomes everything. It all begins as nothing. Everything starts as nothing. That’s not just a big, heady thought, it’s how things work. It’s all just energy, sitting in a neutral state, until it’s called into becoming something…no longer neutral, zero, nothing.

You’re not energy, though.

Here’s how I understand things…

I am a souled creator being…consciousness. You are a souled creator being…consciousness. I exist. You exist. Period.

We, as creator beings, use energy as the tool with which to create our reality. It is all meant to serve you. [A topic for another post.]

That’s big…significant…maybe a deep breath is in order…

{Deep, conscious breath here}

So when it feels still and quiet…or things feel stalled out…things may simply be in the void…a place that you can’t sense yet.

The void can feel uncomfortable. It can cause questions, doubts and fears to stir and rise to the surface. The trick here is not to come to the wrong conclusion. I always have to remind myself…oh yeah, that’s just the void. There is nothing wrong. It’s easy to head that direction, but there’s nothing wrong here. All is well. Your creations, your solutions, your life is on its way. No need for doubt. However, that’s easier said than done, at first. As a former worrier, it always felt like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop or like the dreaded calm before the storm. But it rarely was. That was my mind trying to come up with a story and my habit or pattern was to create a story that would cause worry. I did the work to weed out the old patterns and get at the roots of issues that helped me put a stop to that habit.

Eventually, I discovered that there are only a few questions that are truly appropriate here:  Am I willing to trust myself? Can I sit calmly in the unknown, not needing to know the how of it all? Allow the mystery? Can I allow myself to be and feel safe and sound and secure within myself, not connected that to anything external? And can I allow…allow it all to come to me? Just feel and breathe it…and allow. These are not the questions of a worrier or doubter or one who plays only in the mind. They are the questions of one who stands in the position of creator, the creator of his/her life.

So, next time the void comes ’round, I invite you to see it for what it is. Take a deep centering breath. Step into the place of trusting you. And trust that you know what it is. Then allow…allow it all to come to you…to unfold…to happen in the appropriate order, the perfect order. There is nothing wrong. All is truly well. And if you get your mind out of it, what arrives may just be so much grander than the limits of your mind would allow!

It’s simple! Whether it’s easy or not is up to you. Why not choose easy?!
