Empty spaces

Whenever something ~ or someone ~ disappears from our lives, we are left with an empty space.
It doesn’t really matter whether we are happy we have finally been able to let go of whatever was there taking up that space, or if we experience the fact that it is gone now as a loss. Either way the fact that the space is now empty gives us a reason to pause. It invites us to ponder that space; what has been there, why we have kept it there, when did we stop holding on to it, and what to put in its place…

And that last one often is more important than it seems at first glance. After all, more space is a good thing, right? While this is true, when we decidedly feel at as an emptiness; when it looks hollow, more than spacey, it is a good idea to place something into it that helps regain our balance.
It can be filled with fond memories, with an affirmation that we did good in finally letting go, or even with Light. Non-directed, pure white Light from the Highest Source…

However, eventually we will look at each and everyone of those questions, and perhaps wonder whether we should have let go earlier. Or did we give up too quickly? Was it enough to just stop holding on, or should we have formally released whatever it was that occupied that space?

Bit by bit, step by step, we will find a new balance. And as we do, the hollowness dissolves and a sense of freedom emerges. From that sense of freedom we can then decide what to use that space for…

Whenever we are confronted with an empty space in our lives, it means that we have embarked on a journey that involves goodbyes, letting go, stillness, the revisiting of memories, and finally a sense of freedom as a new balance unfolds.
It is a journey that has many different facets. It is like a crystal that looks different each time the light shines upon it from a new angle. Over time, as the light has touched all the facets of the crystal, it will again start reflecting its qualities ~ bringing them out into the world.

We are not meant to keep wandering around in those ~ sometimes vast ~ empty spaces, hearing only our own footsteps in their hollowness.
We were meant to be like that crystal, that, with every ray of light that touches it, regains its innate brightness.
Stronger and more beautiful than ever before!
