Emptiness, everyone has experienced these feelings at one time or another.
When we realize that we have to deal with ourselves as human beings instead of human doings we consciously start filling up every moment of time to avoid dealing with our inner feelings.
Even though this transition can take us on the most wonderful journey of our life, we fight it tooth and nail.
Sometimes we may think that it is more education or information that we really need. This void usually coincides with wanting to change everything around us, giving us a false sense or lulling us into believing that it has to be something external.
The Age of Aquarius
During this Age of Aquarius and the new millennium humanity is being propelled to not only arrive at some of the answers to the important questions of life individually but also how each one of us effects humanity as a whole.
Deep down we all want acceptance, happiness and joy we are all seeking harmony, peace contentment and love. So what is it that we keep missing, time and time again.
We each learn our lessons of life differently some of us only need a gentle nudge while others need a more traumatic change of events in their life. Sometimes an accident or close to death experience gives us the wake up call we need.
This emptiness can come at a time of great financial success also, when everything seems to be going well in our careers. We are fulfilled in our love life, we tell ourselves, but yet there seems to be something missing there too. If all that success has not filled the void then taking away everything may be the answer. The so called material and financial success even that loving relationship
Again we are forced to come back to self and look at our own self worth, to learn our most important lessons of life. So we now start to look at what we bring to this world, what is our real purpose for being here and what do we have to share with humanity.
Turning Toward Positive Change
Focusing on positive change actually anticipating, and looking forward to moving ahead creates a change in attitude, an old Chinese Proverb says that everything is created in the mind first, even if at first you do not believe it, keep your mind focused.
If you are like me, you have read all the books and attended all the seminars on how others have gone through amazing inner makeovers. They look better, younger; they have a clearer focus and purpose in life where before they may have experienced depression and felt like they were falling into an abyss. They are full of joy at just being alive an unconditional love seems to flow from them and through them onto everything that they touch and do.
They have finally given themselves permission to let go of the negative emotions and patterns that held them back in the past, and they feel fortunate to have this second chance and opportunity to make a real difference. This spiritual journey we are told changed their life completely. Once we realize that there is no turning back and no one else can take this responsibility for us in this lifetime, we come to a clearer understanding of what we have to do. If we allow this inner journey, through meditation or prayer, by letting the answers flow through you, actually hearing yourself speak those words, this can be a cathartic release.
Truly Letting Go
This is also a good time to seek out other like minded and like hearted individuals or support groups. Then and only then can we start to discard negative energy fields and negative thought patterns that have held us back from living a fulfilling life and from letting our true light shine through.
When we give ourselves permission to let go of blaming, complaining, excuses envy, greed, jealousy, controlling love relationships, and self created fears, we start to get the idea.
Only then with this newfound courage can we see clearly our true purpose and destiny. Only then do we come to realize what the universe knew all along, that we are loved unconditionally, that our life has purpose and the roadblocks that we have perceived in the past were just that blocks to get over.
