    The Dark Night of the Soul

    So in meditation - on one of the rare cases recently when I was quiet enough to actually meditate - it came to me that the contents of my psychosis are self created, that in effect this confrontation with my fears is a kind of Dark Night of the Soul, a series of purgations and trials that one...

    Dark Goddesses

    "Darker Goddesses are not evil. Dark goddesses travel where others fear to tread. They move through the veils between the worlds and into the shadows of powerful magick. They bravely venture into the Underworld and dive into the areas that other shy away from like death, transformation...

    Very Depressed

    Not much to say about it. Low is low is low is low. Very low. So tired but I can't sleep straight through the night. I start my new uni classes at 4 this afternoon, and I'm supposed to start my practicum tomorrow, and I just don't know how I am going to get through this semester. Maybe I...

    SAD Light Therapy

    Hey everyone, I apologise, my internet has been broken, so that's why I haven't been online often. I feel shattered all the time and very run down. I have a healthy vegan diet, lots of fruit and veg. Lots of water and fruit juice. I take multivitamins and vitamin D. And still, I am tired...

    Hello everyone! I'm glad to have found this place

    Hello all, my name is Dana, I'm 31 and I am in a very dark place that I cant seem to get out of. I have always had a touch of depression (I believe it stems from flashbacks of childhood abuse and my parents alcoholism). I did extremely well in school and university, getting first class honours...

    Spirit facts.

    Here is some facts about spirits: They can see just fine in the dark, they don't need light to see, dark isn't a thing in their world. They don't need to work out or anything. They don't need food or drink. Cold and hot is not a thing, they are not flesh. They don't need sleep. No...

    When the Dark Times Get Really Dark...

    I am looking for ways to catch myself before slipping into a really dark period, because I never know what will set it off, or how long it will last.

    That isn't darkness.

    Space isn't dark at all. It only looks like it to us because of our eyes. From their side darkness never existed. Nothing is empty space or dark really. The dark is an illusion. I wonder what is there right in front of me that i cannot see yet, what is in the night sky that i can't know...

    We're all negative consciousness.

    It's the dark side i guess. Many needs but none of them met. Negative consciousness this is. Could have been great for everyone to.

    What is it about the dark?

    I'm sure lots of us like to sit in the dark. I know I do, but I also feel closest to "right" at night. Is it just our depression or what? I wonder if the dark has a therapeutic effect? I have black out blinds AND black out curtains on my window and have considered painting them black too but I...
