When it all gets too much, we can practice surrender. Try the “Surrender Observe Allow Release” meditation from the shamanic blog Loner Wolf. Sit or lie down comfortably, close your eyes, breathe deeply and slowly, close your eyes and follow the video.

Emptiness, the void, darkness, nothingness, uncertainty, abyss, existential dread, feeling numb or like “something is missing” are all symptoms of what I call the emptiness practice (also known as “the dark night of the soul”). It is a tough practice. This Emptiness Survival Kit is based on my learnings in the last couple of years and is a summary of key quotes, tips and practices that helped me and I hope help you to get through it. I plan to post daily for a sum total of 42 posts. See you on the other side.
