“The dark night of the soul is when you have lost the flavor of life but have not yet gained the fullness of divinity. So it is that we must weather that dark time, the period of transformation when what is familiar has been taken away, and the new richness is not yet ours.” –Ram Dass
The road to self-actualization and spiritual awakening is not a straight path. Many times as we sit on the brink of the next level of soul awakening, the soul, mind, and body must pass through trials of transformation that are difficult and discouraging, with no sign of the light. In any lifetime, there are days or times of sadness, grief, longing, or fatigue. Sometimes, however, it goes deeper and lasts longer and often with no apparent cause. When this occurs, we could say we have entered “the dark night of the soul.”
If the soul is that which animates our being in this experience of life, our individual flame from the great fire of the divine. When we...
Welcome back for part two of our Spiritual Universal Laws series. Haven’t read part one yet? Head over here and catch up on our exploration of laws 1-4 before you move onto part two!
In part one, we explored a selection of 4 Spiritual Laws, as presented in Diana Cooper’s Book “A Little Light on the Spiritual Laws,” as they apply to our lives and spiritual journeys. Also, how we could utilize their truths to integrate the many stepping stones on our inner journeys to wholeness and evolution. In looking at Spiritual Laws, we recognize that unlike human-made laws or rules, Spiritual Laws of the Universe are expressions of the intrinsic fiber of the quantum universe, unbreakable and unerring, and also neutral. These laws neither favor nor punish us but are. Therefore by understanding the dynamics at play, we can learn to use them to our benefit.
Today we will discuss the Law of Reflection, The Law of Projection, The Law of Flow, and the Law of Abundance.
Common phrases in our human language often reveal more profound truths about our human reality than what is evident on the surface. Have you ever, for instance, referred to your ‘train of thoughts’?
When we say this, we are meaning a series of thoughts linked together and going in a particular direction-either a purposeful one or a subconsciously chosen one. Yet we refer to it as a ‘train,’ a reference to a substantial and forceful vehicle that moves powerfully in a specific direction, relentlessly and with much fuel.
Can our thoughts also become a vehicle of motion, bringing us closer to a destination of reality? The Law of Attraction is a universal golden rule of existence, holding within its unavoidable truth the simple understanding that like attracts like. Whatever we choose for our thoughts and their subsequent emotions will be magnified, and like situations and experiences will be drawn to us by the nature of our vibration. We are engaging the law of...
In society, we reach adulthood, knowing that we live within a structure of laws and that those laws can have measurable consequences depending on our choice to follow them or not. The same rings true for the smaller example of the family unit and relationships; partners know that if they break the trust of a relationship or fail to hold up their end, there may be backlash. So too, children learn early on that there are a set of rules within their household, school, and world. These rules provide a standard of behavior and come along with a set of consequences when not continuously observed. On a much grander scale, the universe also has laws.
While societal or even familial 'laws' or rules are subject to human consistency and whether or not an individual is caught breaking them, the universal laws could be described as more of an unwavering fabric or structure that is built into the dynamic of existence. And therefore, even those things' done in the dark' will be subject to...
Many Chakra theories exist, and the number of chakras acknowledged varies based on the individual or culture presenting the system. While some systems identify 7, 8, 13, or even more chakras in the system, we will focus today on the 7 Chakra system. This system is coming primarily from the Indian traditions. It includes the Root Chakra, the Sacral Chakra, the Solar Plexus Chakra, The Heart Chakra, the Throat Chakra, the Third Eye Chakra, and the Crown Chakra, respectively.
"The Sanskrit word Chakra translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive," says Michelle Fondin.
Just as we possess...
Oscar Wilde once said, “The heart was made to be broken.” Yet no one had clued me in to this beautiful, profoundly philosophical, and crushing reality prior to my deepest broken heart.
I remember it like it was
yesterday. Have you been there?
Have you ever felt that your soul has traversed the cosmos with the soul of another person? Have you seen past the physical dimension of a person’s exterior and come to love, and be enjoyed on the level of pure essence? Have you sat on a beach or in a field on a sunny day and held hands and watched the world go by in love? I had felt this kind of love, and when I lost it, I was devastated. I remember riding the subways alone in NYC with my headphones on, only half-willed to continue with life. If you’ve had a love like this, you know what I mean. And if you’ve lost love like this, you know true heartbreak.
Yet heartbreak comes not only from breakup or divorce; Heartbreak comes in all forms, from the loss of a child...
Though you may escape this season having dodged the flu or without falling prey to the common cold, it’s nearly impossible to traverse through the social dimensions of everyday life without suffering the frequent scrapes, scratches, and injuries to which the emotional body is prone.
Guy Winch, a Psychology today Blogger, recently released a new book, Emotional First Aid, in which he likens the emotional body to our physical body in its tendency to accumulate injuries, scars, and illnesses along the way. Anything from self-imposed guilt and criticism, to social rejection and loneliness to the extremes of trauma or the deep grief of loss can be the source of wounds and depletions to
our emotional well-being.
Yet just as our flesh and blood are widely able to self-repair given proper rest, nutrition, and mindset, so too can our emotional wounds and losses be mended. Winch uses metaphors of physical injuries to propose strategic cures for the hits our emotions take over the course...
On January 10th, 2020 we have a BIG significant astrological alignment taking place.
Many of you are probably already feeling it!
Do you feel like life is speeding up?
Do you feel a little run down?
Are your emotions running hot?
Are you experiencing a lot of uncertainty?
If so, this is GREAT news!
I know how crazy that sounds by the way, but these are all symptoms that TWO things
have recently happened in your life.
Number One: Your Vibration has increased (substantially)... and this is why it feels like life is happening faster than you can manage. You’re revving higher and experience life
faster... and when you adjust (and you always do :)... your life on all levels will have
Number Two: As a result of an increased vibrational frequency... you, by definition, have been inundated with A LOT more “awareness.” That’s right, you’re... suddenly... significantly more conscious than you were, perhaps even yesterday!
THIS can lead to racy...
The Full Moon is a powerful time to tap to come together with the collective with a specific intention. This Full Moon is not for the light-hearted because this is not only a Full Moon (in the emotional sign of Cancer no doubt) but also a Lunar Eclipse!
The Full Moon energy charges the yang or more active energies of the subconscious while the Eclipse energies surface what has been hidden in the darkness. The Full Moon will be in the zodiac sign of Cancer, which is the natural ruler of the Moon. The lunar energies will be particularly strong.
Think of how the Moon is able to control the waters of the ocean through the tides. Water in the elemental kingdom is synonymous to the emotional realm. This time expect to feel like there is an internal magnifying glass on your emotional world! The combination of the Eclipse energies will most likely unearth what needs to be cleansed and healed within you.
Two people walk into a health clinic; one is an elderly man of 72. He is a tall and thin man with naturally fair skin, his hands and feet are often cold, at night his mind races and he suffers insomnia, he tends to have dry skin and his hair has always been thin and fine, his digestion is typically very sensitive. He’s at the Doctors office today for a skin outbreak that is itchy and red.
The other individual is in her early forties; she has what might be called a medium or athletic build, tends to have oilier skin, a strong appetite, a quick temper, and is hungry often. She is also at the doctor today for a rash that is red and itchy.
In a modern Western medical clinic and the doctor diagnoses both patients with eczema and prescribes both patients with the same steroid cream- a solution that does not address cause but causes the rash to go away, at least temporarily.
Stories like this are familiar to those of us in the west or, indeed, the westernized and modern world in...
