I have several posts on this topic because even thou our awakening comes from it, it is such a horrific, hard cycle in our life to go through. Not all beings have gone or will go through this kind of cycle. Right now, in our civilization, before a shift in consciousness happens, it is a naturally ripe time for anyone of us to go through a dark night of the soul cycle. And together, collectively we are going through such a cycle.
The Dark Night of the Soul (dnots) is a term that has been used throughout the ages to indicate a period of spiritual crisis in one’s life. During a dnofts period, our life becomes a shell from what it was prior. People and things get stripped from us in various ways. Dnots is a period of deep pain and transformation. Dnots is a type of event, which, “if it doesn’t kill us, it will make us stronger,” because the transformation takes place at deep and profound levels. Joseph Campbell wrote the dnots is a pivotal part of the hero’s journey for the hero to consciously awaken from the societal stupor they were born into.
“The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation. When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then comes the new life and all that is needed.” ~ Joseph Campbell
The dark night of the soul experience is something we in the higher dimension (our higher self or spirit self) designed for our human self to go through. The descent into dnots can be a lonely time, as many around us aren’t aware of what dnots is and why it is happening to us. It can be a scary and threatening process for others to observe. If people believe they have the power to manifest their desires and control their lives, the dark night of the soul process will shred this belief and enlighten them as to who and what is the actual control of their lives.
The descent into darkness takes about three years. and then the ascent out of the night and into the light takes a couple of years. In my sixty-eight years of being a human, I have completed four dnots cycles to awaken consciously at the level I am. To go through this many cycles is very rare. In my fifties and early sixties, I went through two dnots periods close together. By 2014, I began to rise out of ashes of my final dnots and into a new life and consciousness. Who I was before and who I became after, is undeniable. The transformation was complete and amazing. Thou at the time, it wasn’t much fun or inspiring during the time spent in the darkness. I feared my life might stay in the descent portion of the journey.
Collectively, the Earth is in the descent process of a dark night of the soul. Because of the nature of our dream-like reality, he Earth’s ascent will only be noticed by those of us conscious enough to be aware that the event has taken place, and a shift in consciousness has occurred. During the shift into the New Earth, the third dimension of reality will shift to become a sixth-dimensional reality. We had long passed the time when the shift was to move us into the fifth dimension.
Until we can shift into the higher frequency, the reality in this third-dimensional teaching field will continue to be challenging, and a bit crazy, so hold on and pay attention. We are very close now to the shift event happening. I have been tracking the shift into our ascension since 1997. There is no precise date for this event. It is up to the Earth to decide when we are ready to leave the descent portion of the cycle.
During this time, our job as lightworkers is to stay safe and to stay focused. It is time for us to help others who are having difficulties. These times can be confusing, challenging, and scary for those of us who don’t have a spiritual understanding of what we are all collectively going through. One day soon, we will awake from our sleep and get up from our bed, and all will have been transformed into a kinder, gentler world. And it will feel and seem like the world has always been this way.
