“Every positive change – every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness – involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”
Resisting the dark passage of initiation will create imbalance and crisis in your life experience.
Each of us must walk our own path of initiation. The loss of a loved one, relationship, health, identity or dream forces us to enter a dark night of the soul. The challenges we face often prompt us to explore lessons we would never purposely choose on our own. They provide the opportunity to discover new facets of our strength while teaching how to access our inner wisdom. Eventually, we emerge blinking into the sunlight, changed, the dark passage now a pivotal piece of our history.
Those of who have been tempered by challenging experiences have a sense of empowerment. You can recognize your ability to face the shocks of life with a quiet sense of acceptance and no longer see any losses that occur as wrong or punishment. Know that your transformation and courageousness is an inspiration to those who grace your life.
