With my heart full, open, loving and receiving, I welcome you to Paradise Psychic. A sanctuary built with you in mind. I believe you are here for a reason.
Most likely you know what that reason is, though sometimes it can feel like a simple discontent, a slight ache in your heart, or a feeling of despondency. No matter what brought you here, I want to say something. It’s important.
Connection is EVERYTHING!
There is love here for YOU. It is in the love that flows between us and all whom we come into contact with that nourishes us. If you are feeling empty or disconnected, then you are in the right place, and NOW is always the right TIME!
I understand very well ‘The Dark Night of the Soul’ a time when you find yourself unable to hide, or to medicate away from or escape the deepest question of your own existence. Similar to when we were teens perhaps but with a renewed despair.
This time is one when we seek meaning and purpose or we finally realize that all of our frantic action is just not providing a sufficient amount of distraction to relieve the pressure of this rebounding question. Why am I here? What is the Point? Is my life as meaningless as it Feels?
Some of us have gone searching for relief in religion, spirituality, philosophy and of course professional therapist also find us turning up in droves looking for the answers and some respite from these dark thoughts.
This is not the same as depression, you can read more about the issues surrounding depression you can read more here.
Back to the issue, once again, Connection is Everything. This is the source of the deepest and most profound wisdom that beats in your heart, your deepest truth and the place for your salvation. It’s already inside YOU. Even as you question it.
Because the troubling issue is that The Dark Night of the Soul is very much of a Solitary Journey. It’s not something we can get help from through group work or even through Therapy.
The Dark Night of the Soul first came into consciousness in the 16th century when a catholic mystic Saint John of the Cross wrote a Poem “La noche oscura del alma (The Dark Night of the Soul).”
If a man wishes to be sure of the road he’s traveling on, then he must close his eyes and travel in the dark.-Saint John
I started travelling this road during my teen son’s, late teen years! Timing, age and of course the pressures of parenting might have helped removed my ability to keep up the energy to continue thinking myself ‘well’, ‘on track’, or ‘sorted’. I feel deeply into the well of darkness when they left to go study at University. It happened all at once. The empty nest, has both provided me the necessary extra push and possibly also the ‘space’ to come to terms with my Dark Night.
