Dark Night of the Soul
The Dark Night of the Soul is a period in life in which we feel cut off from God, or the Divine. When we go through a Dark Night of the Soul, we feel empty, lost, lonely, isolated, depressed, anxious, scared and uncertain.

Although the Dark Night of the Soul may appear to be a curse, it is actually a blessing in disguise. This period of our lives helps us to descend into the depths of our psyches so that we can find our true selves, discover our calling, and reconnect to Spirit again.
