Meditation – Dark Night of the Soul, Saturday April 20th, 2-3:30pm

Dark Night of the Soul is a term used to describe a specific phase in a person’s spiritual life. It is used as a metaphor to describe the experience of loneliness and desolation in one’s life.  It is commonly referenced by spiritual traditions throughout the world, and is generally accepted to be a universally inherent aspect of spiritual growth.

The essence of the experience is the loss of any connection with “God” for a time, which may be brief or may last for many years. For one who has discovered the true joy of being able to come into the presence of God through prayer or meditation, such a loss is devastating – a real ‘darkness’. It feels as though God has suddenly abandoned them, prayer has become impossible, doubts about one’s faith and salvation may set in, and one is overcome by an intense loneliness.

The Dark Night of the Soul is the in-between. It is the space you reside when you are leaving your old way of living, your old tendencies and associations, pastimes, empty or numbing way of life and are moving toward higher consciousness. You see principles of a higher power at work in your life. You may wish to be more deeply connected with it but some how you feel not quiet there, on the outside. You have moved on from your old way of life no longer fitting there, however not feeling as though you are quite at the same place as the loving and giving people who are now your circle. You deeply want to have joy and fulfillment, easily manifest prosperity, but something’s not working. You may feel alone, finding no joy in activities that previously excited you. You may even enter Midnight, were you feel despair seeing no prospect for love or happiness. Moving forward on your path seems impossible. You do not realize the only thing keeping you in this space is the ego.

Just as you give up, your ego falls away, transformed and peace comes. In a few days time joy begins to appear in your being again. The Dark Night of the Soul is about transformation. Hanging in and hanging on while you release your limited sense of self in favor of your true nature, a being with unlimited potential and possibilities for love and happiness.

This meditation will guide you to new perspectives, to assist you in releasing ego in order to gain insights into higher visions of your soul and it’s ability to grow & realize  the desires you yearn to achieve.  The Dark Night of the Soul is about transformation, hanging in and hanging on while you release your limited sense of self in favor of your true nature, a being with unlimited potential and possibilities for love and happiness.

This is a deeply healing meditation where your guides will help you through the Dark Night of the Soul helping you to release attachment to your old way of life and more forward on your path in joy.

This meditation will be preceded by a Reiki Healing Attunement. A Reiki healing attunement is given for healing purposes only. This attunement brings high frequency healing energies which are more powerful than those given at a regular Reiki treatment. The attunement creates the opportunity for the client’s guides to work with them in a more powerful manner. The attunement is highly effective in removing negative energies from the physical body, aura, chakras and works to release any blocks the recipient chooses. The Healing Attunement may also be used to empower goals, receive insight and guidance regarding the goal.

Note: This attunement does not initiate the recipient into Reiki.
