Everything and nothing exists in the Void. Its where all life begins and ends. Its the winter and the womb. The fertile darkness where all things originate and all seeds grow. Comforting and intimidating. Freeing and daunting. It can feel overwhelmingly small and huge. The Void is where faith lives.
The message of the Void is to surrender to the unknown. To allow the fertile darkness of nothingness to nourish the new seeds growing within you. Regardless, of whether you know what they will one day become. Surrender to the mystery of what is next. Rest and allow the winter of life to do the work for you. To hand over your control and trust that just because you can’t see what’s happening beneath the surface it doesn’t mean things aren’t at work.
The greatest weavings happen when we find a way to surrender and trust that life is being knitted for us. Right beneath the surface. In ways known and unknowable. Now is the time to cultivate faith and allow deep, deep rest.
The Void often surfaces at the end of a chapter or life phase. When we are called to let go of all we know and identify with. When your in this process it can feel scary and as if you ‘should be doing something.’ However, the most productive thing to do is relinquish control and surrender to the changing mystery of life….
Every situation is an opportunity to grow; everything that happens is giving you the opportunity to become stronger, wiser, more loving. Everything that happens to you is for your higher good. Some situations offer you the opportunity to release attachment or let go of an emotion that no longer serves you. Allowing your higher good means knowing deep inside that you are safe and loved. That your Higher Self is always working for you.

Trust that what other people do will in some way be for your higher good, even if you do not understand why. No matter what happens, tell yourself the universe is perfect, and everything that happens is perfect. If something you were hoping for doesn’t happen, know that something even better will. Don’t try to force your Higher Self to create pictures of how things ought to be; know that a higher wisdom is always operating. Remember that your Higher Self is always giving you as much good as you will allow in your life……
