At certain times in our lives we may go through what is called a “Spiritual Crisis”, or a long, dark night of the soul. Sometimes it has to get worse to get better, and we may not understand at the mental level what is going on.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ― Anaïs Nin
Our seeming lack of control over the situation, uncontrollable emotions, the seeming hopelessness of life can strike us during a spiritual crisis. Spiritual crises can happen several times during a lifetime; Spiritual crisis can come as a result of, or a precursor to, an awakening.
“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” ― C.G. Jung
The symptoms of a Spiritual Crisis vary greatly depending on the person and the situation, but they can include:
- sleep loss
- panic attacks
- feeling disconnected from life
- feeling that part of you has left your body
- uncontrollable crying
- over-reacting to the small stuff
- not finding anyone who understands you
- wanting to go “home”
A Spiritual Crisis can be triggered by a relationship break-up, a death in the family, or the feeling of suffocation that comes from being in a life that no longer “fits”. We no longer know why we are here, we disconnect from meaning and feel lost. But you do have to crack open at times, to let the light in. A spiritual crisis is a time for growth and transformation. If you can ask for help you get through it, your life could change permanently for the better.
I can help you connect to your inner wisdom and find the strengths that can come from such a crisis. I will hold space and be the catalyst for you if there is energy work to be done such as cutting ties, releasing past karma, easing emotional pain or connecting to loved ones to say goodbye.
“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.” ― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
