One of my private clients recently told me she sometimes experiences an emptiness, a bottomless void as she called it.

I knew exactly what she was referring to.

It’s something most of my clients and, in fact, most people experience—either consciously or unconsciously.

It can show up in many forms, such as:

  • A feeling of emptiness
  • A feeling that something is missing (and you’re not sure what)
  • An undercurrent of restlessness
  • A lack of meaning and/or fulfillment
  • Feeling that more is available to you (without knowing what that is, exactly)

These feelings drive all seeking and searching.

The emptiness, this sense of lack, is what people try to fill and/or avoid.

At its core, what you experience is the deep feeling of separation.

A lack of what a part of you still remembers as the truth about you:

That you are not separate.

That you are Oneness, Life itself.

The belief in separation and seeing yourself only as a separate individual is what makes this human experience possible.

At the same time, it is the deepest source of restlessness, lack, and emptiness.

You forgot the wholeness that you deeply are.

All human striving and searching aims to fill or disguise this deep lack. By filling their time with lots of actions and distractions, most people manage quite well.


When you are ready to let go of that way of living, to go beyond the mind and everything you always thought you were, then…

It is no longer possible to go around that emptiness, that feeling of restlessness or lack.

It is the gateway to your true nature.

It is the bigger part of you calling yourself home…

If you experience an inner emptiness, a sense that something is missing, STOP.

Stop trying to figure out what’s wrong.

Stop finding ways to fill your time, to fill that void.

Stop searching outside of yourself.

Instead, get quiet.

Turn inwards.

Embrace the emptiness, the void, the missing.

Listen to what it has to tell you.

When you do, this emptiness can be the portal to your true nature, to remembering who (or what) you REALLY are.

Until you go within, you’ll always keep searching and never find.

So, listen to your restlessness, listen to these indefinable feelings that something is missing from your life.

The wholeness you seek is on the other side of them.

Take a moment to reflect on this message.

Embrace the stillness and listen to what it has to tell you.

“Listen to the silence. It has so much to say.” Rumi
