Have you experienced The Dark Night of the Soul
I still get low points, sometimes they just last a few hours, sometimes days, or like last winter, which was a drag, but with occasional gasps for air.
I would not say though that the tools (meditation, grounding, prayer, Reiki, etc.) do not work anymore. it is more that one cannot feel much of a relief from them, which is not necessarily the same as them not working. It is bit like a blizzard has dumnped a few tons of snow on your house and property, and we only have a snowshovel to clear it. Well that is what it feels like, but actually many will already have a motorized snow plough, plus a hord of angels on more snow ploughs. The trouble is not the equipment and amount of help, but that it is a very heavy blizzard, and it is still going on. What we clear, is replaced by a new load, almost immediately. So we are clearing, but something new takes it's place asap, and it feels the same, so it is easy to belief that nothing is working. And as there is so much dumped on one, and it lasts for a while, with little respite, it is easy to start feeling it is ones own stuff....(but where all that stuff was supposed to have been tugged away in my bodies, during all the weeks and months before, when I felt fine, is beyond me )
The upside of all this is that during those times we are clearing A LOT! And I trust that in the long run it will make our lives better and better. I know it is a platitude, but I then remind myself that it could all be much worse. Perhaps the collective crap we are sending into Light now, is stopping a war, another economic melt down, or ecological disaster? So the prize we are paying during a dark nite, to awoid an abyss, is actually not that high. Even though, of course it can be very uncomfortable....
What helps me during dark nites is that I keep giving healing to clients, and see how it helps them!
But one can look a it this way too - e.g. feelings of disconnection - they are energy! They are energies creating the illusion of disconnection! Many humans think that they are what is 'real'. Millions have fed them over centuries, there will be a fair amount of them accumulated. So if we are drafted in to help clear such feelings of disconnectedness - more and more humans will feel more connected. Feeling more connected, will makes them feel more aware. More responsible towards one another, the planet, etc....
I did some reading about meditation research the last few weeks. It is pretty exciting. Cannot find the article again now, but think it was IONS research, or one of their youtube clips. Something like it being 30million in the USA in 2015, up form 12million only a few years before that. Plus the number of peer reviewed research studies have gone from a handful per year in the 80's to over 300pa in 2015. If you look at yoga figures , they are ever increasing too. Over all in the 90s one would have been laughed at by most doctors, if mentioning CAM treatments. Nowadays they are so mainstream, there is hardly a cancer patient in the UK, who does not use some CAM treatment as well, and doctors have become much more accepting! So our 'quiet' revolution - bit for bit dismantling energetic structures of non-spirituality is working. But like any revolution we still get some cuts and scrapes along the way.
Love and Light!
