You know those life phases when your partner betrays you, your friends abandon you, you lose your home, a loved one dies, AND you’re diagnosed with a fatal disease?
It might not happen exactly like that or to that extreme. But just when you think you can’t handle one more adversity, that happens too.
I call this the “Losing Everything” phase and I’ve experienced more of them than I would prefer; in fact, I’m going through one right now.
These phases are intended to break our attachments to impermanent things, and they can be excruciatingly painful.
But after I move through all the tears, terrors, sleepless nights, self-judgements, and resistance… I can see more clearly who I really am, what I really want, and who I really love.
Who I really am: a quirky, eclectic witch who loves to learn things, organize things, and simplify my material things so I have more energy for important things.
What I really want: Magic. I want to eat, sleep and breathe practical magic. I also want material security – beautiful food, health, clothing, shelter, and my laptop.
Who I really love: My magical friends, people who are open, real, loyal, and supportive.
Now I know what to let go of, and what to focus on without distraction.
The dark night of the soul can potentially push you into a brand new, beautiful reality. You can miraculously enjoy all the little pleasures no matter what your circumstances. The world comes alive.
It can also force you to be honest with yourself, and liberate you from the pressures of a fake, uninteresting half-life.
May your life be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish
