What Is A Dark Night Of The Soul?

The "Dark Night Of The Soul" is very common for people during the process of soul transmutation or alchemy where all the stored darkness (unprocessed emotions, feelings, old traumas, karma, distorted beliefs) that are stored in our chakras ~ rise to surface for us to process through so we can permanently release them from our energy fields. 

A Dark Night Of The Soul is like a little death ~ death of the ego and shadow consciousness. Many people on the ascension path will experience the dark night of the soul several times throughout their journey to higher and higher states of consciousness. During this time period one may feel very alone, confused, sad, depressed, overwhelmed and uncertain of what direction they are headed in. The dark night of the soul can be a lengthy and profound absence of light and hope. Many people have said they feel like they are dying inside.....and actually, the old energies within them, that no longer serve them, are dying. 

Part of personal soul ascension involves the kundalini snake or coiled dormant creator energy that resides in every human, at the base of our spine, to rise up from the root chakra and burn away the blocks and barriers within each chakra until it finally makes its way up to the crown chakra where divine illumination and the experience of God and ONENESS, with all things, occurs. As the kundalini rises, it prompts the transmutation of the distorted, off pitched vibrations in our chakra system to be purified. And this process can feel terrible because energy never dies! Once negative energy is created within our being it doesn't just disappear....the lower vibrational energies must be raised in frequency in order for it to be transformed into LIGHT. During this process, the negative energies come up for us to shine the light of our conscious awareness on them so we can FEEL them, and release them from our energy fields. It is basically ~ soul alchemy ~ where we turn our darkness (lead) into light (gold). Gold is symbolic of the christ consciousness.

The best way to move through this very difficult time period is to simply surrender to the process. It is our resistance to our pain that creates more pain. When we allow the density within us to rise to the surface and we fully feel it.....we let go of it. And this is the key ~ TO LET GO OF IT. We need to learn to take the medicine (soul lesson) and leave the pain behind. Feel the pain, understand that it has a lesson for you.....learn from it, gather the wisdom it has to offer, give gratitude for it, and move forward without getting stuck in your "story". If we get stuck in our "story"....we have not taken responsibility for ourselves and we have not gained the wisdom! The "story" will drain our precious life force energy! 

The main point of soul ascension/soul healing is to get rid of the old energies that keep us stuck in a vicious cycle of recreation. If we allow ourselves to fully feel the energies that arise ~ they flow right through our entire chakra system and out of our bodies. If we resist our feelings, we contract and create blocks within our chakra system that block us from an abundant free flowing spiritual life force energy from our higher self.

The Dark Night Of The Soul is temporary. Just like a baby moves through the darkness of the birth canal before its birth..... an ascending soul will also move through the chaos and darkness of the void before the birth of it's magnificence.

I have written a book called "Raise Your Vibration" as a source of support and wisdom for you during these transformational re-birthing times.

  1. This is an awful feeling but when you emerge you feel reborn, re-energized and connected

  2. What about the idea of suicide? What about just opting out? Why is this an option not discussed? I have been considering this option for a bit now, and Im honestly done with any and all spiritual intentions of ANYone/THING. So I was wondering if or why my perception doesnt really come up....

    1. i am thinking on this line too.
      feel so trapped in my present situation

  3. I think that's what i was going through 2 days ago and now I find the explanation about it for me to read today on my Facebook wall.
    I was wondering what that was all about of what i went through the other night.
    Thank you and perfect timing for me


  4. Suicide is an option, but you will not escape from the soul lessons you came to learn. You are an eternal being, and you are here to evolve your soul. Whatever lessons are not learned in this lifetime will be re-gifted to you in your next. Spiritual practice and meditation will help you reconnect with the love of your soul and provide strength to help you get through the difficult times. Soul strength is part of our evolution and also learning how to release the pain of our past so we can tap into the freedom of our future. I understand where you are coming from....usually, in our darkest moments we are on the cusp of a breakthrough. Hang in there and be proactive in your spiritual practice. Ask for help from God, and be willing to listen to the gentle nudges from Spirit. You are never alone. Lots of love and big hugs to you. You are stronger than you think you are.

    1. Dear Sabrina,

      I have shared this page on my blog. Hope this is ok? If there is an issue, do please let me know.

      I am struggling immensely with things and circumstances and situations.

      I would like to purchase your book. Will request a friend to help me with the procedure.

      Many thanks.

      Love and Light be with you.

  5. No Im not stronger. Im sick, Im infected.

    1. WJF i feel the same way you are not alone..I have been litterly feeling this way for years. Now it comes and goes, but it passes ! Just stay in the positive mind it helps . Good luck !

    2. Hey I know how it is to feel like nothing matters it just hurts and I want out. I tried it three times and was not allowed, by my soul protectors, to succeed. I always wondered why, well now I know. There are big, great, miraculous changes coming our way. Now is not the time to go weak in the knees. Now is the time to open your eyes and ears and heart. Stay with us, the party is just beginning. Please believe me, it's going to be a fantastic ride from here on in, just hold on and take it all in. It's alright, trust me, I know. Love yourself enough to find out what the future holds for you. I'll be there too.

  6. If anyone wants to talk about depression please email me @ Ive got ideas and suggestions that help me ! I am not selling anything ! Just friends talking !

  7. 'The best way to move through this very difficult time period is to simply surrender to the process. It is our resistance to our pain that creates more pain.'
    How true. But we are trained to 'be strong' through adversity, so we suffer a double whammy. First the grief/pain then the inadequacy of not 'handling it' as our mythical heroes are reported to have done... mostly myth because there is no way of knowing the self doubt and anguish those heroes suffered on the way to success. Well, we do; all we need to do to understand, is to realise they probably felt much the same as we do! That is a release in itself, rarely visited in this world of myths as truth.

  8. Is the dark night of the soul triggered by external circumstances, or is it more like all the negativity is coming up with no reason?

    Also, we talk about feeling the negative emotions and realeasing them, but does that process also include us thinking - about the emotions that arise, what triggered them, and so on - in a reflective manner, or should one just strictly focus on feeling the things that arise without the mental chatter cutting in?
