Eckhart Tolle calls it “a collapse of a perceived meaning in life…an eruption into your life of a deep sense of meaninglessness.” The ‘dark night of the soul,’ as painful as it can be, is a releasing of all that no longer serves you, and an awakening into more of what you truly desire.

Many people on a spiritual path are focusing only on the ‘light’ and ‘spiritually bypassing’ the darkness. We don’t want to feel the pain, so we find ways to ‘positive think’ or ‘release’ our way out of it.

Yet my experience, and that of this week’s guest Ginny Muir, is that the only way out of the darkness is through – there are no shortcuts.

Ginny Muir – a healer, guide, and light & shadow worker – and I recorded this interview a year after she experienced her own dark night, and while I was transitioning out of a relationship from an epic love. It’s raw and it’s real and it covers some amazing truths about the darkness within, the darkness in our lives, and how to navigate it all.

This podcast is beneficial whether you’re feeling amazing or hurting – it’s a conversation about embracing all that is.

Inspired takeaways include:

  • Ginny’s personal experience of the dark night of the soul – what it actually looked like for her on a daily basis
  • How to find the fine balance between ‘wallowing’ in your pain and ‘spiritually bypassing’ your pain
  • Tips on what to do when you’re in the darkness and navigating a dark night of the soul
  • How the darkness can become a blessing – finding the light in the shadows
  • The importance of ‘being with’ what you’re feeling and the incredible learnings you get when you allow yourself to do this
  • How you question all you know during a dark night, but can find a deeper faith and strength within during that process
