The Dark Night of the Soul
Category: Rabbit Hole Written by Teri Wade
That Dark Night of the Soul is a process that some truth seekers go through at sometime in their life. This is not mentioned much in the spiritual teachings because they want you to focus only on love and light.
We’re always being told raise your vibration, look to the Light but none of this will be lasting if you have not loved the Dark. The Dark Night of the Soul is really an overall beautiful experience. It’s when a persons ego, false self is dying making way for their true, authentic self which is love.
This process can happen at any time in your life but it usually happens when you’re searching for spiritual teachings and after you have figured out that Ego is a liar. Ego can be good and ego can be incredibly destructive. You’ve heard me say...”if I personally didn’t have some sort of an ego talking about this subject like I do, I’d be eaten alive.”
Some will have a major issue with this area because when you Awaken to our world how it really is, people want to want to run from the Dark and it’s incredible ugliness towards the Light, not realizing that the Dark will only grow larger when ignored. I believe this is how the Dark and all it’s hidden agendas have grown so powerful. They need to be revealed and that’s what many of us are doing right now during this human Awakening. If we don’t reveal them and their agenda, it stays hidden and it continues.
When you go through this Dark Night of the Soul, and most do during their awakening process just look at it as a spiritual right of passage. Fear will disappear. People don’t realize the heavy baggage that human beings can carry over from lifetime to lifetime and when you awaken all this pain and confusion surfaces but there will be no more freer feeling when healed.
Some people feel as if they’re in a depression dealing with feelings of helplessness, frustration, fear, confusion, loneliness, shame, guilt etc. These are emotions that are trying to surface, they’re trying to get your attention, so you deal with them...because really all they are is feelings in the body that you have tied a story to and this pain is felt throughout the world.
Spiritual depression is different from clinical depression because the symptoms do not come about by an external situation it’s all internal. The more you try to get out of the Dark Night the more it persists because it has to be healed.
During this process you feel alone and won’t know many that will understand what you’re feeling. You fear them thinking you’re crazy and you’re afraid you’ll bring incredible fear and confusion to them as well. But, by resisting this you are making matters worse for you by protecting the Ego, the false self. It’s like you’re stuck between this third dimensional reality and the fifth dimensional reality and for some there’s lots of fear brought on by this change. Your Ego self is deathly afraid of coming out of that existence because it’s change, it’s the unknown. It’s like your Ego self is being dropped and the unknown is very scary for some. It’s like you’re feeling out of control when all along in this 3D reality you never were in control hence, the brilliant deception of Ego.
You need to surrender to this, but your ego self will give up a fight, it’s that resistance that’s making this so difficult for so many. The people that will have the hardest time with this will be the heavily religious who are still so stuck and governed by their belief system. This particular group are the ones I have the most problems with and it’s completely understandable. Religious programming is a very hard thing for many to overcome. They don’t realize that it’s their ego, their false self lying to them and keeping them from truth when all along deep down they know..............
How fast you’ll get through this when it’s your time is all up to you it all depends how tight of a grip the Ego has on you. Your Ego doesn’t want to give up control of you and will put up a good fight. So many people are attached to suffering and pain because we love to fight ourselves it gives us identity, a false identity.
So many fear this change because it’s the unknown. But this unknown territory is love. Human beings are natural seekers and it’s kind of a catch 22 because we fear the one thing, we’re all looking for.
It’s kind of like a spiritual detox that everybody is going to have to go through at some point in their life no doubt about it. Soooo, if I was to give any advice, it would be preferable you go through this in this lifetime. It’s just how painful are you going to make it on yourself by resisting.
When you except this process as inevitable and give up your resistance to it the next step is to do nothing. You are far greater and will feel liberated in this awareness then you’ll ever realize. The Egos fearful grip will be strong because it wants to stay alive but always remember... The Dark Night of the Soul is all illusion.
We have always been home, and we have been Light the whole time. Because think about it… If we weren’t Light, how did we become aware of the human Dark. Meaning...If we were Dark, we wouldn’t be able to observe the Dark. Transformation is a hard thing but really what it is a rebirth that’s what this Awakening is all about, just don’t resist it!
