Dark of the soul is exactly what it sounds like. It is the process of going through shadow work. Your soul is now in its awakening stage. This is the moment when you are forced to go through the emotional rollercoaster ride. Each person's dark night of the soul differs depending on the shadow work you have accepted. For instance a person might struggle with setting boundaries and another might struggle with having patience. Each person would go through a different dark night of the soul based on where they are currently in their soul’s awakening journey.
Dark night of the soul can feel like you are having a tower moment. Like someone just pulled the rug from underneath you. You may also feel like you are on an emotional rollercoaster ride you just can’t get off of. You might feel like you’re all alone, and nobody is there to support you. Anxiety might settle in, as well as depression. You will be swimming through some muddy emotional waters.

Want to know if you are currently going through a dark night of the soul? Take a look at what is currently going on in your life right now. Do feel like your world is falling apart. Are you having anxiety about what your future would look like? You might even be having sleepless nights. Let me give you a prime example. Maybe you are someone who is currently stuck in a repetitive cycle of not valuing yourself enough. This causes you to attract relationships that don't serve you, rather it be romance, friendships, family or business. Let’s use Romance for example. Let’s say you meet a guy or girl while you are not feeling valued. You turn a blind eye to all the things that might be going wrong in the relationship. Now everything around you that you work hard for is starting to fall apart. You might lose your job, get an eviction notice or just filed for bankruptcy. And now you are saying to yourself, why is my life falling apart like this. Because you fail to acknowledge that you have shadow work to do, by seeing that you don’t value yourself enough. It caused you to attract a romantic partner that didn't have your best interest at heart. Your soul will force you to awaken you to the process of healing the shadow side of you that you have been repressing this entire time. It will bring you a romantic partner in your life in this case, to cause a disruption in your life just so that you can go through the process to value yourself more.

Sit still and meditate. sleep. Ground yourself in nature you can do so by taking long walks. Nourish your body and brain with wholesome food. Seek knowledge about awakening to your soul’s purpose.
