Are you going through a “Dark Night of the Soul”?

The term “dark night of the soul” refers to a period of intense spiritual, emotional, or existential crisis. It can be a time of profound questioning and evaluation of one’s beliefs, values, and purpose in life. Some common symptoms and signs of going through a dark night of the soul may include:

  1. Feeling a sense of emptiness or numbness
  2. Loss of interest in things that used to bring joy or fulfillment
  3. Intense feelings of sadness, anxiety, or depression
  4. Questioning the meaning of life, existence, and purpose
  5. Feeling disconnected from others and oneself
  6. Spiritual crisis or loss of faith, not as interested in spiritual practices
  7. Feeling lost, stuck or without direction
  8. Feeling the need to withdraw from others
  9. Things may feel like they are collapsing around you as old structures fall away
  10. Not feeling like yourself

What triggers a dark night?

Major changes such as the loss of a loved one, a job, or a significant relationship can trigger a loss of meaning. Even with changes that you have initiated, you still may feel uncertain about the future. While it may be difficult to see, this time can help you find a new sense of direction and meaning for your life. Going through a dark night of the soul may be the most difficult challenge to face but it can also transform layers of your self in a profound way.

Here are some tips to help you get out of a dark night of the soul:

Take care of yourself! Make sure you are getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising regularly. Engage in activities that bring you comfort, such as reading, meditating, or taking a bath. Part of self-care is listening to your body and mind. Find a meditative practice you like! Guided meditations, sound baths and breath work can help you relax and recharge.

Listen to what the universe is trying to tell you! There is a reason you are going through this. Underlying a dark night is the subconscious drive to strip away all that is false in your life. Things that need to change, repressed needs and emotions may rise to the surface. Relationships and structures that are outdated may show cracks or literally fall apart. The worst thing you can do is resist any changes the universe is trying to make for you.

Find gratitude in your life. Even during of difficult times, there are things to be grateful for. Make a list of things you are thankful for, such as your health, your relationships, or your pets. Focusing on gratitude can be grounding and help you feel secure during this time.

Setting daily goals for yourself can give you a sense of purpose and direction. This is a strategy I frequently use. Start by setting small but achievable goals for yourself, such as going for a walk every day or reading a chapter of a book. Checking off a few items no matter how small will give you a sense of accomplishment.

Then finally don’t forget to talk to someone. It is important to have the support from loved ones, therapists, or spiritual advisors that will listen and help you understand what you are going through. Even just simply being around another person or a pet can be very helpful! Join a group class or got to a holistic event to find like minded people.

I have experienced the dark night of the soul a number of times. It can be an intense period of pain and confusion. The first time was years ago, after my boyfriend unexpectedly passed away. After the grief and shock passed, I went through a period of total disillusionment, massive turmoil and finally change. The other time was after a voluntary change. I left my career of 15+ years. Positive changes can also lead to a total breakdown in meaning. The entire way I had been functioning, the structures, burnout and needing to deprogram myself from the corporate world, had to completely dissolve before any positive changes could take place. The dark night is a period of purging all that is false in your life in favor of finding your true self. These periods can last a long time but allowing yourself time and space to listen to what your soul needs and being open to change will help you get through it.

What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are an energetic imprint of our entire soul’s journey; past, present and future. 

The Akashic Records are an energetic imprint of our entire soul’s journey; past, present and future.   Imagine a vast library that stores everything we have every done including your current life and past lives, memories, emotions dreams, passions, relationships and traumas. Every being has a record, the Earth, crystals, animals and people have a record of their existence and evolution. Even historic events and past civilizations are stored in the Akashic Records.

It is described as a record of the soul’s journey because our spiritual body; our soul, continues after we pass, our earthly experience is only temporary in the wider perspective of humanity’s evolution and path. Our soul retains the memories, lessons and karma for every incarnation, but this information is blocked for the most part by our conscious mind.  By accessing the Akashic Records we can learn about our past lives, our recent past which in turn helps us understand and change our future.

As you can imagine, there is a vast amount of information that is stored in the Akashic Records. That is why it is quite common to hear of them described as a huge library, a hall of records or some type of a temple.  Because of the enormity and implications of this concept, our conscious mind needs a way to conceptualize this spiritual idea. Even when I do guided meditations to the Akashic Records for people or groups, I walk people through a journey that takes them to a place where the records are held.  Often, participant imagine a temple, a huge library or a field. This allows the mind to access the information in a way that makes sense, images will form in the mind’s eye, emotions may rise to the surface or some may hear auditory sensation.

The Akashic Records have been made available on a more accessible level at this time of mass spiritual awakening and spiritual evolution. The Akashic Records are not a new concept though, the process of storing the deeds and records of every living soul is referenced by almost every major religion including Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism.  By accessing the information in the records, you can gain access to a wide variety of topics and information. The issues we face in our current situations today, whether that’s with relationships, family or finances are the result of a cause and effect, the result of our actions or others not only in this incarnation, but also as the result of unresolved karma and actions from our past incarnations. Through understanding these dynamics, we can change and alter the course of our existence in very dramatic ways. The past always dictates the future but with understanding and shifting the chain of events, we can change and shift the course of our lives.

Are you a Starseed, Earth Angel or a Lightworker?

Am I an Earth Angel, a Starseed or a Lightworker?

What is a Starseed, Earth Angel or a Lightworker?  You may have come across these terms while doing research on Spirituality and awakening. For a lot of people these concepts can be hard to grasp but they are terms used to describe your spiritual purpose and mission on Earth and also where your soul may have originated from. The concept of reincarnation and soul origins sounds “new age”, but these are not new concepts.  Many cultures believed that our souls incarnate through many lifetimes through the vehicle of reincarnation in order to learn lessons and evolve. People who identify with the terms Starseeds or Lightworkers  feel a strong pull to discover their purpose and often have a unique perspective that doesn’t fit into their upbringing or family of origin.   In this article we will review some basic terms and qualities surrounding these descriptions.

StarSeeds is the term used to describe people and souls that have originated in other planetary systems and dimensions.  This doesn’t mean they are an alien, it means that in addition to earth they may have incarnated in other systems and learned lessons and acquired knowledge there.  There are many different types of Starseeds but there are some common defining qualities that most Starseeds share.

Starseeds often feel that they have an urgent purpose to fulfill, but their true purpose is often shielded from them until they receive a wake up call.  Being highly sensitive and unique has posed many significant problems for them growing up, often feeling alone or misunderstood in both their families and social groups. Because they didn’t feel as though they belonged or fit in they may have an intense feeling of being an outsider or have adopted an observer role. Compounded by an intense longing to go home despite not knowing where “home” is or where they truly belong.  It is common for Starseeds to discover their true nature and purpose with a sudden wake up call or spiritual awakening,  that sometimes occurs rapidly and without warning. This sudden heightened awareness can be shocking and confusing to themselves and those around them.

Are you a Starseed?  If so you may have had the following experiences: You have experienced a sudden or spontaneous spiritual awakening or wake up call. You are highly empathic, having an onset or the development of psychic abilities. As a child you may have been described as a loner, felt misunderstood, had a unique perspective and a strong feeling of not belonging, and a desire to go home despite being uncertain where that is or what that means. You feel like an old soul.  A natural inclination to be a healer or intuitive, innovator, entrepreneur or someone with a unique perspective to share with the world. You may have bits or flashes of past lives or frequent dreams of other places or dimensions. Signs and synchronicities frequently happen to you.

Try not to worry too much about what to call yourself- simply by asking the questions of who you are and what is your purpose is answering the call of your soul.
