The Void

The Void

Metaphysical Musings

By Christina Lavers

In my last article I described how sometimes the landscapes in which people find themselves while in an expanded state have features consistent with those that others in the trance state describe. This is one of the aspects that fascinates me as it suggests that while each experience is unique, facets of the Quantum field explored by individuals have objective qualities to them. Another fascinating landscape that often presents in sessions is the Void.  

While sitting on some rocks in the Himalayas contemplating the nature of reality, Peter Matthiessen in The Snow Leopard (1978) stated, “These hard rocks instruct my bones in what my brain could never grasp in the Heart Sutra, that ‘form is emptiness and emptiness is form’ – the Void, the emptiness of blue-black space, contained in everything.”

The first time I had a client encounter the Void was in a practice session before I started offering this service professionally. Finding herself in a familiar, yet empty space, the client had a strong sense that there was a reason that she was not permitted to step beyond the blackness at that time. Because of this feeling, and the fact that I did not yet feel confident to assist the person to navigate the apparent emptiness, we decided to end the session.   

Since that time I have learned a lot about the void and this sacred space has become a common destination that I welcome. This dark mysterious space which initially appears empty, actually, as Matthiessen stated, is incredibly rich and alive. Both perspectives are at once paradoxically true.

I will describe an eloquent example of this. Mid sessions the client found herself in what she described as a great void. Endless nothing, just blackness was all she was able to perceive. However, as she relaxed into the space she realized that while she couldn’t see anything, she could feel so much. There were energies whizzing all around. She said it was like being in a very busy city, one that you could only feel, not see. “Like if an invisible truck went by and you couldn’t see it, but you could feel the vibration of it passing,” she said. It was though she needed to move away from the senses she normally relied on, and focus on a more subtle level of perception, one that went beyond her mind. The more she was able to tune in to the subtle levels of perception, the more the experience opened to her and she discovered beings she was able to communicate with, who had intriguing information to share. Interestingly while in this space she had the sense of a large eye observing her. Initially it felt somewhat disconcerting as she felt it could see right through her, but as she relaxed it felt increasingly peaceful. Though she was not aware of it, the all seeing eye has long been associated with the Void.

Another aspect of the Void is an association with feminine energy and the womb. The womb is an empty space from which the miracle of life can be born, like the rich blackness of the earth from which an enormous tree can sprout. As described in the above example the qualities of this space can appear cold and distant, even frightening, if one perceives through the lens of reason and logic, but when experienced through the lens of feeling and heart, the same space becomes incredibly nurturing and supportive. 

I have had many clients who got to the Void and did not want to leave. When they allow themselves to fully relax and melt into the space they describe feeling like they are finally able to stop and rest in a way not possible in human form. There is a sense of deep peace, no worries, or responsibilities, just a profound sense of being nurtured and held. I’ve even had people who said afterwards that they would have been happy if their whole journey was nothing more than a dip into that mysterious space that offered such a powerful sense of restoration and renewal.
