Most people who go through a massive spiritual growth also go through a dark night of the soul.

Everybody thinks that spiritual growth will be this beautiful journey of light and love and rainbows, and I’m sure it is at the end. But what nobody tells you is that most people who go through a massive spiritual growth also go through a dark night of the soul. The time this can take will vary with every person, but myself personally, I’m going on almost a year now. When you awaken and start to grow spiritually you begin to question every single thing that you thought you understood. You learn new paths, new information, new ways of looking at everything. You begin to doubt the whole entirety of your life! The conditions that your soul was content with before, it no longer allows you to be satisfied with. Your soul and your mind want you to start reaching for greatness instead of just existing. The time arrives for you to start following your life’s direction, and for some, you may not have figured out what that is yet which can cause confusion. Certain people find this transition comes easy, you step off one path and simply integrate yourself into the other. But for others this can be one of the hardest things you have ever had to deal with. Old friends, family and usual operations fall away from you and this can be distressing to deal with. Things that you always believed in, may no longer make sense to you as you come to a new understanding of life. You may find yourself suddenly following a different religion completely as your mind starts to comprehend the new information it is gleaning. There may be nights and days when it feels like the darkness is swallowing you up and you can make no sense of anything. Like you are completely alone in a vast wilderness that you don’t understand. I’m here to let you know, do not give up, you are not alone. There are many of us going through this as the spiritual vibration of this earth shifts. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, when, suddenly, you finally realise one day that you do understand what your path is now. The darkness is where many of us learn our lessons. And for some you may discover that your new path is a balanced mix of both dark and light. Stay true to yourself, always believe in yourself and trust your instincts with the new elements that your soul wishes you to learn. No matter what started you on your spiritual passage and which path you follow, there is an incredible journey ahead for every one of you and you will come out so much stronger at the other end
