Dark Night of the Soul Mentoring and Coaching
There can be times in our life when we just don’t know where to turn or even which way is up and all we need is someone with an understanding ear, someone who has trod through the same darkness, someone just to be there for us when we feel all is lost.
The dark night experience is one of isolation, of moving from darkness within, to that of light. It can feel desolate, confusing and sometimes quite desperate, even if we know we are in it. It is a journey into the blackness, like being sucked into a black hole, with all the light snuffed out.
It is a crisis evoked by the soul in response to our aspiration for spiritual growth, for more light, for illumination. But it does not feel like that at all. It feels bleak.
Before the light can shine from within, it must first shine light into the dark recesses of our hearts and minds, to crack the shell of the prison house we have long called home. Our over identification with of an exterior world, our separate self existence, our wonder with the world of phenomena, holding on to the material realm, clinging to our fears, dramas and delusions… these are our prison house, these are our limitations, these are the things that really hold us back… and these are the things that must go!
But letting go is the hard part. If it were easy we would have done so long ago, for we have aspired for growth for many a long year, but alas it has eluded us… or has it?
Remember that the dark night of the soul is in response to an invocation, to our desire for more light… it is responding… just not in the way we thought it would or should respond.
Growth is occurring! Soul light is pouring in.
In order for that light to shine, it must first shatter our illusions, reveal our fears, show us our selfishness, our delusions and the fallacy of our limiting thoughts, then and only then can the crack off light shine and take the place of darkness. Then and only then can the full light of day begin to reveal itself within our hearts and minds, for the benefit of all mankind.
The dark night of the soul will reveal the parts of us that live for the separated self and lead us towards the cultivation of love for all beings.
