Have you ever had someone ask you how you are feeling, and you were not really focused on it at that moment. Then you find yourself trying to find the right words to describe the “mood” you are in? Not unhappy at all, not feeling blissfully beaming either. Not much on your mind and if pushed you could almost say tranquil. I’ve used the word blank a few times now, but people seem to take that as a negative state to be in. Perhaps it’s due to the fact many say they feel blank or “numb” when they have been tossed into a very emotional state and have had enough of it. So they go “numb” so to speak. What exactly happens when we go numb? Does the mind really cut us off from emotions? Do we sit in a limbo state of not progressing or dealing with life? I chose to believe not.
I do agree sometimes after a emotional high of any sort – good or bad, we tend to need downtime to just ‘be’. I also believe sometimes this blank time we have is usually before a huge brainstorm is coming or intense lesson about to be brought into our awareness and the mind will need all the strength it can muster to grasp/use the moments and awareness with power.
But blank is like darkness, it’s nothing bad, just ‘without’ light. A blank canvas has so many possibilities. I believe this to also be a re-start button of sorts to the soul. It’s in sleep mode taking everything in we just went through so it can make the right choices when the awakening hits. We spend time recharging our souls with many things. We meditate and we use positive projection to help others. We nurture our bodies and surround our souls with love. even though these are the most beautiful states to be in, we still need stillness for the soul. Even love in it’s purest form is still moving the soul. To be still and blank, is to not have intent or purpose in those hours/moments. To let the universe fully guide you OUT of the state is the most profound trust and truth one can experience. Why? Because the universe will fill the ‘blank’ with just what you really need. Hence the fact that the profound awakening or motivation will come after being blank for a bit. I believe it’s the souls way of showing us we are more then thoughts and actions, we are indeed part of everything and exist without mindful intent. What a amazing thing to understand that being blank can transform you and open the purest channels to your high self when the soul and the universe align. You do not even have to believe, it’s just so.
The thing this challenges for me is, action-reaction. Is it really so then that we must put forth into the universe something we want to get it always? Is it possible that we can just be ‘blank’ and the universe will guide us to what we need rather then want? Are you strong enough to trust?
I challenge you to believe in the universe and yourself enough to just let yourself be blank sometimes. Let your mind stop racing with worries and thoughts and actions, and just exist. write down the very first few emotions you feel after the blank period and what you noticed brought you right out of it. Those first few moments might not seem profound to you right away, but after a few days, you will see how it was perfectly guiding you to something greater. Are you ready to open your mind?
