If you have been on your spiritual journey for any particular length of time, even if you’re a newbie, you’re going to come across this term. So dark night of the soul is a phrase dark night of the soul is all about when we are thrust into pushed into a contemplative and introspective experience, where we are going with him to seek out the shadows, the demons, the pain is suffering, the fear that is keeping us enslave to an illusion. Okay, so when we’re on this journey, we understand that the physical world is really the illusion is really the dream.
And what actually happening in real life, if you will, is what’s going on behind the scenes. In the non physical, the non physical gives birth to the physical.
And the dark night of the soul is this term where we are really in it. We’re facing the mud, we’re in our pit. We’re feeling hopeless and unable to move through the intensity of our experience. And when we’re on the spiritual journey, we will have multiple dark night of the soul. Okay, guys.
So buckle up because they get intense. They get more and more intense, but they get quicker to move through, if that makes sense. So when you’re first starting out, like the first dark night of the soul is intense. And usually it comes with a massive tower moment which sweeps through and allows you to make adjustments in your life. Okay, but as we continue to move and grow and evolve in our spiritual journey, we will get a dark night of the soul.
Every time there’s a shadow within us that is seeking expression that has not healed and wants to heal. So we can have, like many dark night of the soul, where suddenly we have an event, an outside event that reflect us, an inner wound that we are having, and we are forced into introspection. We are forced into this kind of inner dialogue of why does this keep happening? Why does that experience go down the way it did? How do I keep attracting the same types of people?
Why does this job suck my soul dry? There’s all of these different experiences that we’re going to have in our own journeys. Everybody’s different. But the common theme throughout evolution, throughout growth, throughout human expansion is this dark night of the soul. Because without the contrast and the duality of the shadow, there can be no expansion.
That is the whole purpose of living in a free will universe that experiences the level of duality that we do here in this environment. It is because of that that we have the incredible expansions that we do. It is all part of divine order, divine timing, all of the stuff that is way beyond our human ability to truly comprehend. So dark night of the soul is an integral, Super, super important aspect of the spiritual journey. And we should never, ever, ever shrink away from doing the inner work.
So when we’re confronted with a experience that really takes us to our knees, really just grinds our face into the dirt. That is the golden opportunity to figure out why that happened and how to move through it and love ourselves with compassion and non judgment and forgiveness in order to move through the intensity of whatever that experience is now. I want to be clear, even though it says night, dark night of the soul, meaning numero Uno. It’s just one day, no Biggie 24 hours done. That is not the case.
The dark night of the soul could take days, weeks, months, even years, decades. Even as this long process of working through our shadows and fear based narratives to get to the other side of our healing. So just know that if you’re thrust into a dark night of the soul and you kind of feel like there is a karmic loop repeating in your experience, it is trying to get your attention. There is a wound, there is a pain. There is some sort of unhealed aspect with in you that is seeking expression, because when we allow our shadows, our demons, our fears, all of those lower egoic, fear based narratives to have a place for expression.
That is when we are able to come around that shadow, around that fear, around that pain and love it back into wholeness. That’s how we integrate the shadow. That’s how we master our ego. That is how we open up the doorways and frequency levels to all sorts of beautiful things that come for us when we are operating in those highest frequencies of love and life.
