Dark Night of the Soul

I want to talk about this concept because I feel that this might soon be happening to a lot of people. And of course, this is my perspective, other people will have their own unique experience.

My awakening began in earnest after my Kundalini activation in Nov. 2014. You can read more about that in my previous articles – Kundalini Activation through meeting Twin Flame and Kundalini Activation – Snake Dreams, Twin Flame Dreams.

The phase called “Dark Night of the Soul” will be different for everyone, but for me the Kundalini activation began a process where the energy began clearing blocks in my chakras – which takes time. For some, the activation can lead to enlightenment right away.

So as this energy does it’s thing – a lot of soul searching activity goes on. For me, this led to a lot of researching online and through reading books.

A lot of people somehow quite mysteriously, all seem to come across the work of Dolores Cannon. In case you don’t know who she is, she was a hypnotherapist who worked with clients who eventually began telling her some very interesting things that she documented through books. I had read one of her books “The Three Waves of Volunteers” and I had begun reading another one of her books called “The Convoluted Universe” and it was probably for the me, the straw that broke the camel’s back and thus my Dark Night of the Soul began in about March/April 2016.

It’s hard to remember the pain, and even harder to describe the type of pain that I was in.

I actually talked to someone else who had a Kundalini activation and they experienced the same – except for they had more of an enlightening experience after they experienced the “Dark Night of the Soul.”

I feel like it was my ego trying to die, but it wouldn’t, or couldn’t figure out how to make it happen. My friend said that they just surrendered, but I apparently did not know how to do that.

To give context to what is happening internally, I think I had been reading and digesting these various perspectives on “reality” and it all came to a head while reading Dolores’ book.

Some of these concepts included the perspective that “I am God, I create my own reality”. So this understanding to me, really affected my psyche. And I’m not a mental health professional in any way, so I may be totally off base here, but that is my perspective.

I don’t think we appreciate how much our psyche is impacted by our core beliefs. I always had this perspective that there was this “God” out there that I could pray to when I was down, that “had my back.” And now, it was like, well what now? Do I pray to myself? It’s just me??

Not only that, but I had also learned about the Earth’s true history. I had never really understood the concept of Jesus (I’ll do another post on that another time) and I thought the whole Adam and Eve story was weird, but I think I had always believed in humans, the normal story.

But since my awakening began, I had learned about the Annunaki, the Ancient Builder Race, our connection to other galactic races as “Starseeds” incarnating here on Earth, the Reptilians running the show as the Elite. I had learned about the beings from Lyra, Pleiades, Sirius and the Extra Terrestrial beings living here on Earth. So my whole identify and my place in the Universe and how I fit in had been turned upside down.

These two main concepts – I am God and I am not who I thought I was and our place in the Universe is vastly different than what I thought – I believe these were what finally caused me to have my Dark Night of the Soul.

I felt like I had nothing to stand on, my foundational beliefs had been demolished.

I remember I literally felt like I was falling while I was laying on my bed. It was this out of control like feeling and it was terrifying. I remember it felt like a series of mini nervous breakdowns – like each one was getting worse.

I felt this internal struggle going on – like my ego was trying to die, but I wouldn’t let it die. I just remember it was an internal pain like I had never known before.

But, my ego did not die – and I did not achieve ‘enlightenment’ which is what happens to many people after this process. If you are in the Spiritual Community, then you are probably very well aware of the people that have reached a certain level of enlightenment. I consider them my teachers. However, I believe that they are not always the best people to assist others because they are so far advanced – they almost become unrelatable. And I think that is partly why I kept myself at a certain level – in order to help those that are just in the process of waking up.

I believe 2020 is going to be one of those years where people will be forced to wake up – and probably rather abruptly.

These past years of these energetic waves that have been washing over the Earth – they are packets of Consciousness that are bringing darkness to light. We have to deal with our inner demons, this energy is not letting up. The time is up for those that have refused to look within themselves and address their traumas. Many of us have had years to process and work on ourselves and achieve a certain state of inner balance.

My hope for those that are still asleep is that they are able to navigate what is coming with as much assistance and guidance from those that are leading the way through this Great Awakening. Wayshowers – I believe our time is here.

Soul Tribe

Have you found your soul tribe yet?

Once you start to awaken spiritually – you will start to change on a lot of levels. One of the most profound changes for me was that I just felt ‘different’ internally. On the outside, I looked the same, and I can see how no one would know or not understand how I had changed, but I knew I had.

Part of this process comes with this longing to connect with others that are going through what you are going through. You start to feel isolated, alone and unable to relate to your partner, friends, family and co-workers. It can cause a real sense of distress.

Some people may even call this a “lonely path.” But it doesn’t have to be!

I believe as Starseeds, we agreed to come to Earth to assist during the Ascension. Part of that agreement involved having pre-planned “Blueprints” to meet up with our fellow Starseeds, and specifically our “Soul Tribe.”

My Kundalini activation happened in Nov. 2014. I discuss that in these articles

https://heatherburket.com/2019/04/21/kundalini-activation-through-meeting-twin-flame/

https://heatherburket.com/2019/05/22/kundalini-activation-dreams-snake-dreams-and-twin-flame-dreams/

During that period of great searching, I came across a website called In5D.com

I was so excited and thrilled to finally come across some information on topics that I was interested in. I devoured the articles and searched the database for anything I could read.

One day, I came across an article on “High Vibe” food. The article totally made sense and one of the things that stood out to me the most that I loved, was this communication that everyone’s needs are different. The author was not trying to shove her beliefs onto everyone.

I immediately looked up the author – Bridgett Nielson and found that she had a retreat in the next 2 months in Sedona, Arizona! It was preparing high vibe food, meditation and visiting a few sites. I thought that sounded perfect! I was excited about it – but at the same time scared!

What happened next is to me what I find so intriguing. And on this journey, you will find things such as this, and others that are both intriguing and mysterious.

As I was sitting at the computer pondering if I should sign up for this retreat or not, I literally felt as if my arm was being guided (pushed really) to sign up for the class. I believe that this was one of my Spirit Guides encouraging me to attend.

The next day, I woke up in shock. Did I really sign up for that class? What was I thinking? I was absolutely terrified!

I am an introvert and I absolutely HATE group pow wows – it is so not me!

After a while, I got over it and actually made the trip a few months later.

It was interesting because I think the group of us at the retreat all knew something was up. It felt different. I think we all knew it was special – but I personally didn’t know exactly why. Later I realized it was because I had met my Soul Tribe – people that were going to be instrumental to me on this journey and that we had known each other before. I believe that Bridgett brings soul families together through her retreats.

Being alone on this journey beforehand and now meeting up with all of these people on their own unique journey and all of them having very high energy – it was exciting and overwhelming at the same time.

Several of the people at this retreat had met during other retreats. I was ‘new’ to the group, as well as a few others.

During the retreat we learned a lot, connected, shared out experiences, books and all sorts of helpful information.

But one of the most profound experiences for me – was the triggering of memories!

After this retreat, I had many, many dreams, several of which I have no idea where or when these ‘past life’ experiences happened or the meaning, but meeting everyone activated these memories.

I remember meeting one couple, who I instantly adored, and later having a dream together with them where it was clearly Atlantis!

One of the benefits of meeting our Soul Tribe, is to receive activations from being in each other’s presence.

After the retreat was over, we stayed connected through Facebook.

The following year, a couple of the ladies from this retreat planned a trip to swim with the dolphins in Bimini (Atlantis).

If you are interested, you can watch my video on that experience here:

Again, this put me out of my comfort zone, as I am terrified of the ocean, but I thought this must be something that I’m supposed to go to, so I agreed to attend.

Again – this trip was probably the most ‘activating’ I have experienced. And I think part of these activations happen because other activations have happened previously – both by being in high vibe locations as well as meeting other people.

The following year, one of the guys in our group had read about how important it was to travel to Hot Springs, Arkansas – because of the vast expanse of crystals underneath the Hot Springs area had been activated. So, a group of us traveled there to meet up, connect, and dig for quartz crystals!

What was interesting about this trip, was the very first night I was there I had this really weird ‘explosion’ type of experience – like over my head. It’s hard to explain. I felt like I definitely had some sort of activation while being there.

If you’ve ever had a Kundalini activation, sometimes there is this blinding white light and an associated ‘explosion’ type of experience that I believe is your 3rd eye activating. This experience was very similar to that.

And just last year, 2019, several of us traveled together for the most amazing experience in Peru and Bolivia for 2 weeks visiting all of the sacred sites including Machu Picchu, Puma Punka and Tiahuanaco as a few examples.

And when we are not traveling, we stay connected through WhatsApp (texting app) sharing our experiences, getting feedback and support from each other during the year.

On this journey, I think that there are a few different scenarios that we can experience as it relates to connecting with others on our spiritual journey. We might have friends and family that listen to us – but don’t really understand, because they aren’t at the same place. That kind of interaction is okay, but it can still feel very isolating. When you find your Soul Tribe, you finally feel like you can breathe a sense of relief. These are people who are going through what you are going through. You feel connected, you don’t feel so alone and isolated. This is the goal. We want to be able to connect on a deep level. The journey is ultimately about remembering our own Divinity. This process is not easy and requires a lot of inner work. These people will walk through the mud with you. You can open up, share your vulnerabilities, cry, laugh and learn together. It’s such a blessing to have. I truly wish each and everyone reading this that you find your Soul Tribe – because it’s been a lifesaver for me.
