In some Native traditions, the Void is called ” Great Mystery”.( Not to be confused with Great Spirit, which comes from Great Mystery.) In Taoism, the Void is the Tao. All and everything. Limitless possibilities. Chaos. Hence the saying ” The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao”. After all, if you are speaking about something limitless and undefinable, how are you defining it through speech?
All times, past, present, and future, are existing simultaneously. All dimensions, universes, and planes of existence are existing simultaneously. Since the mind is linear, logical, and finite, it cannot begin to grasp the concept of non-linear time. It cannot begin to grasp the chaotic nature of the Void. Nor should it. It is not designed to do that. That is the job of the Right brain, the magical, intuitive part of ourselves.
In Classical Chinese medicine, which is rooted in Taoism, a piece of the Void is seen as being held in the Kidneys, the Water Element. Emotionally, the Water Element is about faith, trust, our resources, the limitless possibilities available to us. It represents the supernatural. Magic. Conversely, when it is weak, it affects us through fear, an inability to trust, both ourselves and others. Shattered or betrayed trust at a very early age, through physical abuse, emotional abuse, or sexual abuse is something we work towards restoring in Chinese medicine, using herbs, stones, essential oils, and acupuncture to strengthen the Kidney meridians.
During a recent reading with Merlin, he commented on my connection to the Void, saying that due to early childhood trauma, I had become anchored to the Void, rather than to the Earth Plane. This actually made a lot of sense to me, as I reflected on it. I’ve always had a sense of humor about not being terribly grounded. I just figured it came with the territory of being a Clairvoyant Empath. And the truth is, I’ve never met an Empath who WAS grounded, like ” normal” people. We are always moving in and out of energy fields as a natural way of being. We flow. Which is what the Water Element does. It flows.
Now, let’s look at manifesting, for a moment. There are a number of techniques used to create something, to manifest something. Many of them focus on using the mind, affirmations and visualization, as well as intention work. All of these are excellent tools, using the mind and the energy of the Causal Plane, which vibrates to the planet Uranus. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, the planet that rules the mind and communications. Uranus rules the Causal Plane, and our Higher Consciousness. We can certainly use that to manifest. However, if an individual has learned at an early age to spontaneously take refuge in the Void, AND REMAIN PERMANENTLY LINKED TO IT, then manifesting anything using the Void is much easier for that person.
Here’s what that looks like for me. Rather than using the Astral Plane or Causal Plane, I link directly to the Void, (which is ruled by the planet Pluto, the most alchemical of the planets.) I can feel the Void. It is sentient. I can feel it breathing,, alive within me. I feel the love it has for me, and me for it. I feel the way I belong to it. I feel our oneness. When I say I link to it, what I actually do is suspend mind, thereby suspending my illusion of separation from it. We are all ALWAYS, IN EVERY MOMENT, LINKED WITH THE VOID. We all exist within it. Everything does. Mind and the Ego construct create the illusion of separation. Everything that we need exists. Love, health, abundance… Everything. We don’t need to create it. We need to draw it towards ourselves, from where it exists, to where we exist. This is the best part of Void Magic. We don’t need to “know how”. That’s mind, and mind doesn’t work in the Void. By surrendering mind, and fusing with the Void, or “All That Is”, we have access to all possibilities, all wisdom, WE BECOME ONE WITH MAGIC. And with that living link, everything is possible.
What we want to create is a living, permanent bridge within ourselves between our Spirit Self and the supernatural Void Magic within us… A link between the Fire Element, ( the Heart), and the Water Element, ( the Kidneys). The Shen ( the Divine Spark) and the Jing ( the Essence). This is the heart of alchemy. As Dr Yuen has taught, ” Alchemy is the redemption of Spirit ( Shen) from Matter ( Jing)”. ( The creative essence held in the Kidneys).
We are always, in every moment, living in the Void. Embracing that, FEELING THAT, is the path of the Alchemist, the Mage, the Wizard. It is the path of the Stars, magic, and miracles. And it is always available. The only thing in the way is mind. Oneness is a heartbeat away.
