The Dark Night of the Soul
Honoring The Dark Night of the Soul
When we descend into a “Dark Night of the Soul,” we are often confronted with pain, sometimes relentless pain, or perhaps confusion or anger and most certainly hopelessness and depression. We may in fact be grieving the loss of a loved one, but to be sure, we are almost always grieving the loss of some thing . We may feel, as if we ourselves, are dying. To be sure, it is a most delicate time and the tide is strong as it mercilessly pulls us under.
I myself, have been through many a Dark Night of the Soul episodes. I honor and cherish the process and have helped many others through theirs. If you are undergoing a difficult passage, I want to encourage you to be utterly patient, kind and loving to yourself; give yourself time to see, feel, hear and mend. Take your time, and by all means, reach out for support when you really need to and only allow the gentle man or gentle woman to nurture you in your delicate time of rebirth. You’re worth it. You’re worth the wait.

”I saw the river over which every soul must pass to reach the kingdom of heaven and the name of the river was suffering: and I saw a boat which carries souls across the river and the name of that boat was love.”
What do I offer?
First and foremost to Honor your Dark Night of the Soul process.
It may be through the process of “Hitbodedut” or “Ho’oponopono” or “Constellations” or “Deep Listening” that uplifts your Dark Night of the Soul’s evolution, so that you are born anew to begin again and reenter life and recommit to your earthbound journey with greater love in your heart and grace in every bold step you take.
By Deep Listening and offering a space of acceptance and compassion. Then, we take notice, and I will help you in how to proceed differently into a newfound awareness in unwrapping or is it wrapping this gift of life granted to you. We explore questions like: How did this happen? How did I get here? Who was I? Who Am I now? Or as one of my favorite singer songrwiters Bob Sima wisely reminds us in his song No Mud, No Lotus, “that everything you go through, grows you, exposes you; the things that broke you also awoke you to the questions you needed to ask.” What questions do YOU need to ask right now?
