A Trial by Fire, or Dark Night of the Soul, is a period of time that lasts up to a few years, in which just everything seems to go wrong and you are stripped bare, often losing everything.
If you’re cringing in embarrassment right now, then stop. This really happens to almost everyone – and it’s practically guaranteed to happen to anyone who has ever set out to achieve anything major in his or her life.
From a spiritual point of view, the attainment of reaching the level of a Dark Night of the Soul is nothing to be sneezed at – in order to get there you’ve certainly had to earn your spiritual stripes.
However, hardly anything in life comes easily and without effort, and the price for reaching this level of spiritual achievement is the difficulty and complexity of the lessons that will populate your Dark Night of the Soul.
When you have extreme spiritual trials like a Dark Night of the Soul, it’s really difficult to keep your faith while looking at a life that seems to be falling apart.
How do you walk with dignity through a trial period like this and what do you need to keep remembering to stay sane?
A major evolutionary stage like a Dark Night of the Soul is not something the universe gives you a heads up about; you kind of discover along the way (or afterwards) that this is already where you are.
What are some of the clues that will tell you that you’re in a Dark Night of the Soul?
Twelve life lessons taken from Matt Damon’s epic struggle in the recently released movie, The Martian.
The Martian, starring Matt Damon, is a movie that will restore your faith in the human spirit and what it is possible for you to achieve. If you haven’t seen it, watch it. In the meantime though, here’s a brief overview of the movie.

Like any area of expertise, spirituality has its own set of unique jargon terms that people love to bandy around. Among the more vague terms are ideas like surrender, acceptance and transcendence.
What money lesson is the Universe currently teaching you?
At the bottom of all the personal drama that makes up a shift, you always realize that there was a single lesson this was teaching you all along. It’s almost like the shift cycles down until you can understand it in a single statement, and in that moment you realize that you were seeing the same message over and over again, all along.
You’re usually good at shifting but lately you’re not. What is causing your personal growth cycle to be stuck?
In a normal personal development growth cycle you’ll work your way through statements and realizations and finally come down to one core realization that ties it all together – somehow that one sentence makes it all make sense.
As the Age of Aquarius dawns and the 5D reality becomes our own, which personal growth lessons are you likely to be grappling with right now?
The keys to understanding the Age of Aquarius and the new 5D reality are the following:
Everything is a duality and all of creation takes place in scales of duality.
The main duality is a polarity of separation and unification.
How to do shadow work - How to face your dark, shadow or Ego
Cycling down to the rock bottom of lessons
So before I even explain the process, I have to explain why we do shadow work and why it’s not a bad thing.
I need to feel better BEFORE I carry on doing the work… this is a lie! "I’m feeling overwhelmed - I’ll do the work when I’m settled.” “It’s all too much for me - I need to take a break.” If I had a penny for every time I’ve heard this, I’d be a wealthy woman ;) The saddest part?
