Black Holes and Super Novas

Are you feeling compressed, constricted, tight?  Do previously important things in your life seem to be falling away?  Have you been given recent opportunities to let go, shed, release certain aspects, relationships, jobs, etc. in your life?  If so, today’s blog is for you.  (including a special treat of musical accompaniment!  )

Living Dead Girl

As I mentioned in my blog of June 4th, Letting Go,  the past six months have been a time of departures.  Roles that I have claimed for the past 20 years, titles I have assigned to myself, jobs, my place in the world, a love relationship, perceived financial support, etc. etc. etc. have all been dropping like flies.  SIGH!  When in April this process brought me to my knees and I was feeling a little like a Living Dead Girl, I brought this to prayer and asked God, “What is this all about?”  The answer was loud and clear:  “Doors are closing so that new and better ones may be open: ones more reflective of who you are and and who I am calling you to be, ones more reflective of the love and the joy that you are now, ones more reflective of how I have uniquely made you to reveal my love, contentment and joy in the world, and ones that will bear greater fruit.”  Ok, doors are closing so that new ones can open.  Receiving these words gave me a measure of peace and have helped me to weather this constant releasing, releasing, releasing and the grief that comes with every opportunity for release.  But in truth, I’m starting to get a little tired from all this releasing and all this grieving.  Come on God, give a girl a break!

Supermassive Black Hole

Just when I think I have reached my limit of releasing and grieving, I asked God again, Can you throw me a line dude?  I’m gettin tired over here!  Again, God was happy to answer, this time with an image.  The image was of a black hole…..and the black hole is me.  I am being drawn more and more deeply into the deepest part of my inner self, compressed and squeezed, collapsing into myself.  As I am sucked deeper and deeper into the black hole, all that no longer serves, all that is no longer reflective of who I am and who I am called to be, all that is no longer life-giving or reflective of the love and joy that I now know within myself, all of these things are being squeezed out of me and released into the universe to be transformed.  And man o man can I feel the PRESSURE of this vacuum-packing!!!!!!!  I feel tight, constricted, barely able to breathe, sometimes too compressed to move or think.  It is the strangest and sometimes most maddening feeling.  Throw a little grief-inspired depression into the mix with all the releasing and you get a sense of the darkness that exists within this black hole.  The good news is that the black hole is not the end of the journey….as God reminded me, it is only the beginning!

New Universes, New Worlds and Super Novas

What God showed me next is that on the otherside of the black hole, actually deep, deep, deep within its core is the doorway into new worlds and a new universe.  After all the compressing, when the black hole has collapsed into itself, it turns inside out and a new doorway emerges.  Now, all the pressure that has built up from all the collapsing, compressing and constricting can no longer contain itself and explodes in the BIG BANG!!!!!!!   In a massive explosion, far beyond what any of us could possibly imagine, a SUPERNOVA erupts, exploding out in all directions, out into eternity in fact and in that massive explosion, a new star, a new solar system, a new universe is BORN.  As God showed me in these images, when the BIG BANG comes and the SUPERNOVA is born, I too will be catapulted out into a new life, a new universe, new and more refined roles, new love, new hope, new dreams, new fruitfulness and abundance.

We Share a Common Path – Shiny Happy People!

I share this story because I know that I am NOT the only one being sucked into the black hole in preparation for the BIG BANG and SUPERNOVAS.  It seems that everyone I encounter whether clients, students, companions, friends, loved-ones, fellow-bloggers, etc, etc, etc, EVERYONE seems to be going through some form of compression, release, letting go, shedding.  I also know that God doesn’t give me messages or images to keep them to myself because chances are, others are having similar experiences and are in need of similar re-assurances, support, a life-saver to keep them afloat on this crazy journey toward new worlds, new universes and a new life.  So brothers and sisters, HANG IN THERE……..God has also told me that the time of compressing is coming to an end and that the SUPERNOVAS are soon to erupt, ushering us all into a new life, new hopes and new dreams.  In the meantime, breathe, sleep, dream, NURTURE yourself and your needs, tend your creativity and find a little time for play.  And did I say, breathe?????   PS  A little Lamaze breathing might be appropriate here…..we are in the transition phase of labor and that new life is soon to emerge through the RING OF FIRE.  Here it comes.  Can you feel it?

What are you being invited to release?

How are you experiencing this black hole time?

What are the new things that might be trying to be born in your life?

  1. Lauri, I’m impressed with this level of insight; your sharing of feelings, compressions, stress and black hole, super nova’s and such with everyone, including me! : ) I’ve been saving this facebook comment from you, to read at a later time, when I had more relaxing time to absorb. I’m blown away by your words!!!…..Everything you’ve written in today’s entry! It is so happening in my life, everything you wrote; since March of this year. I’m still kind of lost and found at the same time. My heart and head are saying the same thing, even though my dream job is shifting away due to doing what seems to be the answer from my head to focus on the whole, family, life picture, instead of my passion. I’m discovering that I do have some anwers to my passion, too, so I won’t have to lose it all. : )

    Thank you so very much for being a part of my life, being my friend and being who you ARE!! Gosh, what would we do without people who care, take time to share the knowledge and include others within their soul of existance. I appreciate YOU and What YOU Do!!!

    Keep up these incredible insights, sharing with all of us and being your true self; which would include the “new additions” to YOU and the “new, refreshed and alive YOU”! : )

  2. Lauri-
    i entered the black hole on june 17th aprox 4am.
    prior to entering, i had a strong feeling of heaviness accompanied with fear. i was shown ‘posters’ of all my fears. i was told to choose one and experience it (all of the fears were of ‘loosing myself/body/ego’ in someway or of standing firmly in my truth.) i did choose one that i thought was the most scarey…burning in fire. but i didn’t burn in fire.
    in choosing to surrender to the fear…i simply entered the black hole. the FEAR turned out to be the portal to the infinite void or black hole. i say surrender because really i did nothing…took no action. there was trust and a willingness to ‘accept what came’. poetically, i would say that ‘action’ would be to take a step forward, and ‘surrender’ would be to take a step backward. that is how it felt…i took a step backward (not in direction) but in attitude. in that instant…i entered the black hole/void. it was FULL not empty…i thought i would loose myself…perhaps i did…but i really gained everything.
    i have been afraid of this heavy feeling preceding entering the void, since i was 8 yrs old. that is when i first felt the heaviness of it try to take me…but i resisted…i didn’t know what it was, but it felt scary. i couldn’t get answers from my parents. i simply told them that i had a bad dream…but nothing happened, nothing was there, only i felt heavy and the slightest sounds were so loud.
    finally, 44 years later, i understand what was happening.
    i am being totally sincere. this is not written lightly as entertainment. this really happened. i googled, ‘surrender to the black hole of the self’, because that is how it felt to me. and that is how found your blog/site. keep in touch if u like. i have more to share, but don’t want to risk boring you, unless your interested.

    1. Koort,
      Thank you for courageously sharing your own journey into the black hole. The goal of the black hole is to catapult us into the highest expression of our highest self – the place where we know joy, peace, love, are aware of the unique way in which we were gifted to reveal God in the world and where we generously share these gifts in the world for the betterment of humankind. The black hole is not an ending, (though many things will fall away), it is a beginning. And your email brings to mind a note of caution for all those experiencing the black hole: if the black hole does not come to an end, there might be other things going on and it would be important to seek support in discerning what that “something else” might be.

      Thank you for sharing and my blessings to you as you await the birth of the SUPERNOVA that will catapult you into new life!
