Ever had a 'dark night of the soul' ? Or go through 'dark' periods? The darkness is not really what you think it is...
We have a tendency to try to escape the dark. We’ve been taught to go toward the light, ascension, and upward growth. We tend to fear decay, destruction, and aging. We talk about the ‘dark’ and dark times as if it’s something to be feared. We run from the dark.
There is a difference between dark, evil, and shadow... The true ‘sacred dark’ is highly misrepresented and misunderstood.
It's actually a core and sacred part of nature and feminine power. The denser vibrations of matter is sacred. It’s not to be feared. Opening into the dark is the key to feeling truly grounded, whole, ecstatic, and joyful. It's the other side of the Yin & Yang circle and it's essential in order for us to return to wholeness.
Discussing everything from how to relate to depression and untangle darkness and heavy emotion, grounded spirituality, spiritual bypass, Donald Trump, and womb wisdom, Janine Ma-Ree, ISTA Lead Facilitator and founder of the Red Earth Temple, guides us through the land of the dark in this episode.
