We shape into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. – Tao Saying
Over the years we fill our minds with beliefs from the experiences we have in life. These experiences can sometimes leave empty spaces within us. They may be empty from rejection, hurt, unworthiness, anger, fear or grief.
Over time, if I do not face these empty spaces and fill them with love, acceptance and healing, I am much more likely to have others reveal this wounded space. For example, if I have a belief I am not good enough, I may find I attract people in that remind me I still believe this. I may find myself in situations that set me up for failure or repeat yet again, I am not worthy. It doesn’t matter how much I tell myself this is not so, or that I am worthy, if I haven’t filled this space with healing and acceptance, I will continue to be shown.
It can take time for these patterns and beliefs to change within me but once I heal these spaces, the universe will reflect this back to me. Keeping full means taking time daily to rejuvenate, listen and nurture my needs.
I sit in stillness outside or in a quiet room
I take some deep breaths in, I feel myself letting go and relaxing into this moment
Where is this empty space within me? When did it begin?
Do I need to forgive myself or others, what belief can I finally let go of?
I breathe out what no longer serves me
Can I allow this space to be filled with love, healing and peace?
I imagine and feel this space within, being filled with love, energy, light and peace.
I breathe it in deeply, I deserve to feel full.
I allow myself to rest in this moment of fullness.
