I was asked to speak about the “dark night of the soul” and my personal experience of it. Below is what I said:
As a lightworker, to do and be what I was designed for in this incarnation, I needed my attachments and limiting beliefs to be stripped away. In our life, this is precisely what the dark night of the soul does. Throughout my life, I have been through many dark nights of the soul. Transformation is indeed painful, but necessary if we are to grow into a butterfly.
Through this transformational process, I learned the importance of letting go so that I can live my life now practicing continual letting go. It is surprising how easy it is to forget to let go and why it is an ongoing practice. After experiencing so many dark nights of the soul, the ego becomes diminished enough that we realize we can live in perpetual transformation, by using the dynamics of unattachment and acceptance. It is much more enjoyable to accept what needs to be accepted rather than to stay in resistance against something.
Collectively, the Earth is in the process and going through a type of dark night of the soul, and will come out the other side into a new dream or teaching field, which will be less dense. Until we make the shift into the higher frequency, the reality we are in now on the teaching field, will continue to be challenging and a bit crazy. We are very close to this event taking place now… literally it could happen any day now.
Peace to all of you and hold on tight. The ride will be over soon, and it will be worth all the hardships. 🙂
Recently someone asked me, “Why can’t we see the higher dimensions, but we can see the lower dimensions?”
I can only answer this from a spiritual perspective. At the moment, the teaching field of this Earth school is taking place primarily in the third dimension, so the vision of what our physical eyes can see is limited. Seeing the higher dimensions beyond this requires a different kind of vision than just our physical, third-dimensional eyes. Some of us can easily see the higher dimensions, while in this 3-D body because we have evolved our consciousness into the higher dimensions. The higher dimensions are more subtle and can often be overlooked and not seen at all by those who have yet to develop or have their third eye or 6th chakra completely open.
The 6th chakra is tied to the 6th dimension. The Earth consists of 13 dimensions. For us to see beyond what the physical, third-dimensional eyes can see, we need to see with the eyes of our spirit and soul or higher self. We need to use our connection to our higher self, residing in the higher dimensions to see. We naturally expand our vision by developing a conscious relationship with who we are in the higher dimensions. As beings, we will only ever able to see up to the level where our higher self resides.
Once we begin to awaken beyond the third-dimension, the part of us who has incarnated into the physical plane can be used to push the boundaries to help our higher self expand beyond their current dimensional awareness. This is why incarnation into the human body is so valuable. To have a human, with this potential, is powerful because we become our own pioneer and tool for new growth, and expansion to happen in the higher dimensions. This kind of growth is a push-pull event, whereby all the selves (soul, higher self and physical self), work as a team to grow our being.
Recently someone asked me: “Why do I feel so alone while on the spiritual path?” Below is my response.
We walk this life and the spiritual path alone, and yes, it can be lonely at times. The more we have consciously awakened, the less isolated we tend to feel because of the inner growth which has taken place. When we connect and integrate more with our higher self, the gaps of loneliness we feel are filled up with awakened consciousness and the understanding of Self. We no longer feel the separation of Self so strongly. Our higher self (the spirit self) spends eternity growing and evolving to become lighter within the spectrum of our creation.
Yes, the loneliness can considerably lessen, the more conscious we become. However, from my perspective, while we are embodied, no matter how enlightened we become, it is only natural to feel a bit of loneliness at times. It is a misconception to think that all loneliness simply disappears with enlightenment. If one is in any kind of form, spirit, human or whatever, there will always be a slight kind of loneliness because this is the nature of having a form, and it is inherent in all matter. The spirit self or form will always yearn for higher degrees of light energy and to keep evolving. This yearning is a type of loneliness that pushes our being forward to forever becoming more conscious.
Again, from my perspective, it is not possible no matter how enlightened, while in a form, for this aspect to be gone entirely. While in a form, and if we are enlightened, we exist as a conscious paradox. When consciousness realizes itself, it becomes eternal. Conscious beings do not need to dissolve back into the One because their consciousness has become One. They are a paradox. They will forever be in Oneness thou striving for greater Oneness while in form. We all exist as both spirit (form) soul (energy), and both need to be understood and acknowledged.
I was recently asked this question: “Is it more often than not struggle and strife which makes people spiritual?”
Pain is a great motivator, and yes, because of this growth is painful. We are naturally spiritual beings. Earth is a school for beings to learn and grow and evolve. Part of the curriculum of the school is for us to grow through tough lessons, aided by a system that some call karma.
Karma is a learning system whereby we are held accountable for all our actions. Our spirit self needs to heal the parts of ourself, which are damaged and to balance our self with all other energies.
The more evolved we become, the more aware we are of our spiritual nature. And the more evolved we become, growing can become less painful. When our spirit or higher self has learned what we came here to learn, we can move on from incarnating into the third dimension and graduate from this Earth school.
The semester of our current classroom is coming to an end soon. This is why the lessons have become more intense. A new, bright, and shiny semester will start soon, and all will be right with the world for a time. Some religions call this period on Earth “the Golden Age” or “Heaven on Earth” or “Age of Aquarius”. The peaceful time on Earth will last for a few thousand years, and then the regular teachings of struggle and strife will return on the teaching field.
We can mitigate the pain of growth by learning to let go and go with the flow of our life rather than resist what is happening. When we remember life in these human bodies is a school, and we are the representative for the real student who is our higher self, life seems to be less painful as we grow.
I was asked recently if seeing synchronicities are a proof of a spiritual awakening?
Yes, seeing synchronicity at work could be considered a degree of awakening. Also, it depends on what your definition of spiritual awakening is. Maybe we could say that seeing synchronicities might mean, we have woke up enough to be able to see the connection of everything, but we might not totally understand it yet.
There is a web to creation and to life’s happenings in the third dimension. Synchronicities are continually happening, but we might not always see them. It seems when a newly awakened person sees them, they place greater meaning on the happenings, than a person who is further along on their awakening journey. Synchronistic incidents for beings who are further along, and more awake is just sort of business as usual and how things are, and they expect to see them.
When we begin to notice synchronicities and such, that we previously weren’t aware of, it might be because we are opening up to a new dimension from what we were previously perceiving from. In the beginning, we see the differences from the old dimension to the new one very clearly. And then over time, we get accustomed to the perceptions, and everything becomes business as usual until we reach the next new dimensional understanding and perception.
Recently, I was asked by someone, “how will I know if it is my mind or my higher self speaking or telling me to do something?
This requires us to dig deep and investigate, study, and practice observation of our self for a long time. Then, over time, we begin to tune into the frequency of our higher self more quickly, and we just sort of know we are dialed in. This is why meditation has become so popular because it helps us to become quiet and more aware of our higher self and our ego. Higher self’s guidance is a little more subtle than our intellect/mind. It is our intuition and gut feelings, whereas the ego’s vibration is more dense and irritating, judgmental, and attached.
It can be tricky and confusing if we are already listening to our higher self, but we doubt what the guidance is, or when we hear the voice of the ego louder because we have an attachment to what we want the outcome to be. Often, we are attached without realizing we are biased in some way, to the issue.
When I have uncertainty around something, I consciously practice non-attachment so that when I ask higher self my questions around what to do, I can feel, hear, know the answer with greater clarity. We can ask our questions as many times as we need and in many different ways until we are sure we have received the intended answer.
When we practice listening and following the voice of our higher self, we support the awakened awareness of our higher self becoming louder within our being.
I wasrecently asked, “What happens to theego-mind when one transforms into their higher self?”
As we grow to become more of our higher self, our ego-mind becomes diminished. It is still present. However, our higher self overshadows it, while it exists in the background of our being. The ego-mind is no longer who and what we identify as or who we answer to. We now take all of our guidance and cues from our higher self.
When we invite our higher self into our being, we have made a declaration to our being, at some level, that this life belongs to the higher self. We have the recognition that our life is an instrument for our higher self to use… it is the higher self’s life. When we reinforce this sincere choice over and over, the power the ego has in our life is gone. This takes place over time, within stages of awareness, as we come into a broader understanding of Reality and who and what we are.
