I Acknowledge, Yet Release, All of My Dark Night of the Soul Sufferings
Shamanic Energy Medicine
The timings now right, indeed very right for me, to release that which helped shape me by almost and on so many occasions all but breaking my resolve.
Yes its time to acknowledge that pain, yet to also let go of that too which no longer serves me or the clarity that I fought so hard to unravel and embrace.
Therein and for me I know there’s no arm band of honour for surviving ones dark night of the soul, but what there is is a sense of almost sublime purification.
How do I know that? Well I’ve paid my dues, and whilst I know and accept that there’s so very many cliches around the dark night of the soul process.
My overriding view once through our own is to focus upon the positives, an impossibility unless we have put in the hard yards. Because freedom and self love isn’t wearing those hard yards or scars as our uniform of martyrdom, it’s much more, in fact it’s acknowledging the great wisdom that we’ve acquired along the way, whilst letting go of all our pains and sufferings.
Now I’m not simply saying that we forget where we’ve been, the trials, the tests or the bottomless pits of mortal despair. How could we for those are the very things that re-shaped and ultimately healed us. What I’m saying is that I truly understand the wrath of ones dark night of the soul, for my journey brutalised me and my sense of being beyond my mortal comprehensions and over many psychotic years.
However we never allow ourselves to fully breakthrough until we accept and release all the energetic blocks in all our soul based mortal sufferings. For it was self love that implored us to make that journey and therein only self love has the courage and vision to guide us back to that place of; release in healing and peace.
Therein; I’m not a martyr and neither am I a survivor, I’m simply a soul on a eternal journey into remembering and when we get to that point that we understand and accept we’re all part of the one. Well that’s the very point that we lay down our angst of and towards the sufferings of our own dark night of the soul.
For in truth there is no angst in living in the now where unconditional self love rules our higher heart supreme. Only surreal gratitude for the grace in our life changing journey and the inner knowing that we are anything and everything. Amen
In Releasing My Souls Sufferings, I Embrace Self Love and Unconditionally
I’m very much aware of living in, with and through the metaphor called; “Dark Night of the Soul”. Having spent 30 years in absolute mortal despair and a further 11 years of mortal hell, I firmly believe that I am blessed to have survived my own.
For that journey was an integral aspect of my souls continual evolution through the often gut wrenching process of abstract abstraction and remembering. A divine process designed to simply crush the old and then rebuild anew, by walking; [ the road of the bones ] a lonely journey, yet better am I for all those hard yards alone.
All part of my own shamanic healing journey which painfully saw me stripped bare to the bone, via a process that we shaman call the; [ whitening of the bones ].
You see; the death and rebirth than one experiences as a result of the dark night of the soul process is like no other experience that any mortal has ever encountered before and certainly not something that they will probably repeat in one life time.
So let me be very clear here and I make no apology for this at all; for many years, living in or through my dark night of the soul was no club that I felt privileged to have been a part of. For that was a place so cruel and so brutal that it simply defies mortal comprehension and is often for some a place they do not return from.
A pitiless place where sanity and the release from insanity are as far away from the incumbent than any innocent mortal has the capability to comprehend. Such is the wrath of that soul destroying and yet paradoxically; soul building conundrum.
Indeed a timeless process designed to free us from all our mortal illusions, delusions and overt domestication, therein; a divine process which is all part of abstract, abstraction and into our remembering, where all things change forever.
That said; crisis and change are a necessary part of all our soul based mortal experiences, for without mortal crisis, wholeness and inner peace has no meaning.
You see; our souls couldn’t evolve without crisis and a reason to change, for it is our mortal crisis that ensures that our souls can evolve and back into wholeness.
Therein and because I now choose to release all [ energetic blocks ] from my dark nights of the soul sufferings, I trust that my journey back into wholeness is eternal.
Authors Concluding Notes
I wrote this post because I was becoming increasingly aware that an older post relating to [ surviving a dark night of the soul ] was being read more and more.
I took from that, that yes and as our planets vibration is shifting, that more and more mortals are feeling challenged and being pushed into much darker places.
That said I thought I’d shine a light into that darkness and craft a post which shows that we do come through our dark nights of the soul and that there is a life after.
Therein and to all those souls currently wrestling with their own dark night of the soul, I say only this; “when you believe you can achieve anything and everything”.
All that’s needed is unconditional self love and inner vision to light your way. Amen
Trust That There Are Healers and Soul Mates at Every Stage of Our Journey
Its true that, that which is written will not pass us by, therein; and at the time my mortality hung by a thread so fine that only the angels could see it.
A [ little robin ], nay; a starseed companion from our far away planet sort me out and held me, loved me and inspired me to keep fighting even though I was spent.
And whilst we’re no longer a part of each other’s journey I accept that “love” in all its glory lives on eternally and that is the true majesty of [ all and wholeness ].
Equally and as I began to unravel my own dark night of the soul journey, I realised just how; [ a hug, a rose and a kiss ] had inspired my soul to keep glowing.
That being said; and also amidst the darkest days of my current mortality a kindly man called [ Eric Duncan ] gave me his CD “Songs From The Secret Garden” and I listened to that for hours, upon hours, weeks upon weeks, months upon months.
And although my heart was breaking the power of the music on that CD helped ease the pain in my mortality and therein helped free my soul too and for that I will be forever grateful to the generosity of Eric and also to the power of music.
Validation enough if validation is needed that soul mates, healers, mentors and guides present in the most unlikely yet preordained order, all we need to do is ask.
Therein here is a link to the track which I’ve played a thousand times, indeed a track which still resonates with me to this day: Secret Garden – Nocturne – enjoy !
