The Dark Night of the Soul

There are times when we feel empty and cold, lost and alone –
and it seems that any extra step we take could make us stumble and fall.

Numb, hardly able to breathe or speak, we pull away;
away from our loved ones, our dreams, from life itself.

What is there to fight for or surrender to?
These are the times right before our transformation
where deepest darkness surrounds us.


The dark night of the soul.

We dive into our own darkness
in order to find the source of light within.

In order to find back to our authentic selves,
we have to die first.

It’s often the last step before our dreams come true.

We need to lose ourselves
in order to find back to our true essence.

The essence of love and everlasting power of our souls.

But the process of dying is a painful one.

Not knowing where to go or who to turn to –
until we realize there is no one to turn to other than our true selves.

Allow yourself to fall, to cry, to surrender.

Allow yourself to lose control.

Control of ego is an illusion…

Shake off the demons that whisper that you
are a failure into your ear and allow yourself to see your light again.

Take your power back.

Ignite your energy and burn your doubts away.

And you will rise like a phoenix from the ashes –
and become your authentic self again,
filled with self-love and appreciation for life.

Glow and set your soul on fire!

It is a wild journey into the deepest fears within.

But if I was able to get out of this, so can you!

I have traveled all around the world and lived in Germany, Austria, the East Coast of the United Sates and the West Coast. After 4 exciting years in New York City where I sang and lived in a church, another great year in and 2 years of traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast in our Travel Trailer, my partner Tim and I have decided to stay in one place for a while, focusing on writing and inspiring people from all around the world. Our Home now is in California, the state we have always dreamed of. My posts mostly come from the inspiration I find within myself, from my journey through life and on the road with our trailer. What I don’t make to a blog gets turned into music. Tim and I are Singer-Songwriters with the Name: From the Aether. You can find our website here: www.fromtheaether.com
