Last night, I listened to this awesome roundtable with Michael Jaco, Jay Campbell, Dr Christiane Northrup, Jason Shurka and Lorie Ladd. Five of my favorite Lightworkers. It is on Michael Jaco’s Youtube page. Living In Resonance: Special Valentine’s Day Roundtable – YouTube
In it, they speak about the collective Dark Night of the Soul. Something that we are all experiencing now as we shift the entire collective energy into a higher frequency. A monumental task, one which comes with no instruction manual.
What is the Dark Night of the Soul? It’s a point in time when you have hit rock bottom, don’t know what to do, can’t cope and may even think that life isn’t worth living. Yeah, some serious shit. However, if that moment puts you in imminent danger then get yourself to safety whether it be person, place or thing. Scream loudly for help.
If not imminent danger, then you might just be facedown in the muck wondering how you got there. Circumstances, poor choices, a lot of poor choices. . .but it’s hard to breathe. You can’t see any way out. What to do? ROLL OVER. Take a deep breath, because how can you think when you are hyperventilating? In other words give yourself a break. Roll over, listen to the sound of your in and out breath, feel your heartbeat and allow yourself to release the emotions. You may even need to pull your head out of your butt. Get out of your head. You do that by feeling what’s going on in your body. Then look up. Maybe you are in the bottom of the well, lying in shit, but if you got in there then there is a way back out. When you look up, you might see that opening. There might even be a bright, shining light streaming in. That is the light of hope. When you focus on hope, then you open up to possibilities and that is where the miracles live.
And you live through it.
These Dark Night of the Soul moments are points of transformation. Not only do they build our inner resiliency, but they teach us to trust ourselves and force us to honor our Soul’s desires. Maybe you had been experiencing little testing points or incidences that didn’t get your attention. Then the shitstorm comes and knocks you off your feet. But only for a little while. You emerge out of that barrel of despair a newer, stronger better version of you. Just don’t drink the barrel dry before you get out.
