Empty Field of Not Knowing
I wanted to be with
the energies of the US election for a few days before
writing this newsletter. When I awoke the morning after the
election, the air in my room, in my home, and all around my
town was crystal clear. A heaviness that had slowly grown
and enveloped what I saw on a psychic level, was no longer
in the forefront of my energetic awareness. It remains, but
is now in the background. A clear light quality of energy
has stepped forward. It fells like a fog has lifted, and the
air is sparkling clean for the first time in a very long
More on this follows

The popular vote did not reach this level of support for
Barack Obama and the change that he brings. But there are
many whose souls are woven into the fabric of our country
who did not or could not vote, such as the 12 million
estimated immigrants who do not have legal status, and all
those children under the voting age of 18. These souls and
others shifted the balance of consciousness within the
From a psychic level, the election revealed a level of clear
light that has been hidden until now. Clear light is not
white light nor is it dark light. It is what happens when
our level of consciousness goes beyond the polarity of the
third dimension and the tendencies we have to judge things
as good or bad.
When we see clear light, we are seeing the potential that is
only visible from within our hearts. Looking through our
hearts out into the world allows us to perceive what lies
beyond our mind's polarity. This is a state of non-judgment,
a state of neutrality, and a place that may initially feel
like a void or empty space.
But this is not an empty space. It is merely a space devoid
of judgment. Most people are so accustomed to listening to
lower level guides that invite them to criticize all that
surrounds them (and themselves). When those guides are
released in favor of more loving and compassionate guides,
we experience a sense of silence wit hin our bodies and our

Empty Field of Not Knowing
I was talking with a client about stubbornness. Not the
just the kind of stubbornness that makes us insist on doing
things our own way. Rather, it is a stubbornness of
releasing the need to mentally control our lives.
In my experience, American culture prides itself on
thinking. But thinking often alienates us from our innate
Spiritual guidance. Turning an issue over and over in your
head merely spins your energies into a tangled web. "If this
happens, then that will happen" becomes your mantra. You
lose touch with the flow of life that is naturally occurring
all around you.
As I was sharing this with a client, Archangel Michael and
began to show me a picture in my mind's eye. It was of a
vast field. When I sat in the center of the empty field,
there was a pure line of sight where I could see the horizon
in each direction. All was visible. Michael referred to this
as 'the empty field of not knowing'.
As human beings, we are uncomfortable not knowing. We are
all on an accelerated learning curve. One of the lessons is
learning to be comfortable sitting in a space of openness,
where the old is gone, but the new isn't yet in sight. We
are sitting in "the empty field of not knowing."
When we sit in that empty field, we can actually see it all.
We can see any motion, from any direction. The moment
something starts to move in our life, we will see it. There
is nothing of the old to block our view.
In contrast, when we sit in the densely populated forest of
our mind, which says "I know it all, I have it all figured
out," we can't see a thing of what life might be bringing
us. Each tree represents an idea, an object or a habit that
we continue to hang on to because we believe that we must
keep it. And each thing, idea or habit blocks our view. Here
we sit, our minds full of thoughts, each thought keeping us
from hearing or seeing what our guides, angels or soul is
trying to tell us.
For this reason, I find that thinking is highly over-rated!
I certainly learned how to sit in the forest, but it no
longer serves me.
Feeling that something must happen indicates you are sitting
in the forest of your own ideas. When you feel clueless and
experience thoughts such as "I don't know what is going to
happen next," you are in the empty field. Archangel Michael
suggests giving our minds permission to think along these
lines might be useful to invoke our sense of humor and
innate connection to Spirit.
So repeat as needed:
"I'm going to sit here and just know that I am as clueless
as I feel, and it is all right to feel clueless. As long as
I sit here in the empty field, I will be the first one to
see what Spirit and my soul want to have happen."
There is nothing wrong with that sense of emptiness and not
knowing. As children it was ingrained into us that we should
have a plan. And a backup plan. And a backup plan for the
backup plan. Spirit says throw those plans out! Get out of
the forest of your plans! These are trees that are planted
only in your head, and they are blocking your view. Get
yourself out of the forest of planning everything, so that
you can see what Spirit is sending your way.
I know that I still like to sit in the forest occasionally.
Interestingly, the more we sit in the populated forest, the
less our 7th chakra can be activated by our soul. The more
time we spend in the open field, the more our soul can open
and charge our 7th chakra. And we can more easily see what
is on the horizon, both at an energetic and physical
When we are sitting in the forest of 'knowing it all' and
'having plans' Spirit cannot touch us easily. Our mind is
listening to itself, rather than our soul. Thinking less and
knowing more is part of what comes because we sit in the
empty field of not knowing.
A deeper sense of knowing love happens in the empty field of
not knowing. That is where you can have your new experience
of love. As long as your brain is relishing the knowing,
absorbed in its own circular thinking, your mind can't
appreciate the more subtle possibilities of that emptiness
The empty field contains all the possibilities that lie
before you in your life. And you can't sense these
possibilities already being within you when you are admiring
the trees in the forest. Be brave. Take a walk into the
center of your empty field of now knowing, so that you may
know your soul's next step.
My blessing to each one,
