Have you woken up to a big truth, taken a “Red Pill,” or gone down a rabbit hole?
Or, have you faced similar discovery in your personal life that shakes your foundation?
We can feel overwhelmed by the illusion we’ve discovered, and the degree of evil in existence.
It can leave us feeling powerless, hopeless, and helpless.
How do you get out the other side when everything looks so dark?
Today I’m talking about how to “wake up” without getting depressed.
You’ll learn how to get through these Dark Night Of The Soul moments with more grace, ease, and efficiency.

While I appreciate this video for people I know – to say avoid at all cost people who are in “this dark night” of the soul is in now way being helpful. It is judgment of their pain which places you in the same category of people you deal against. I’m this video you talk about literature you have written to help but in turn say – if I encounter you I will turn away from you. That is of not help. If you truly want to help people maybe you too should grow more. While I understand it’s very difficult to be around certain people, I think instead of judgment perhaps you should care about them, give them a few minutes of your time to listen, let them know you understand and care and you have books that could help them. To say you want to help then say “I want to run away from them” is hypocritical at best and maybe indicates you have not grown out of your own dark soul.
This is not meant to be harsh, only an observant listener hoping to help you grow as well.
Sorry for some auto correct typos. Should have reviewed better before sending. My apologies
You are certainly entitled to that opinion! However, you misconstrue my point. Those who have “identified” with this phase in the journey are choosing a victim mentality, and they do not want books or resources, nor do they want help or support in self-empowerment. They want pity and attention for their “wound power.” They want to vent and offload their heaviness onto others without an interest in changing themselves. I can see how my excellent boundaries and wise discerning skills around these people may sound harsh or non-compassionate… there was a point in my own journey when I would have thought the same thing!
So well said. I didn’t hear avoid those who have made a home in the dark at any cost, but we do tend to gravitate to those whose vibration we momenarily share- the old adage, misery likes company– and to protect your boundaries when you are intending to move through to the other side.
If we do not judge our own dark night feelings, then we won’t judge others but we may will choose to not surround or connect with those who could trigger in us more struggle. That is smart and seems to be an actual tool of empowerment to keep moving through.
Ms. Geersten: I congratulate your hard-won health successes, value your nutritional advice, and admire your strength of conviction. I even appreciate your description of the “dark night of the soul” as a spiritual process that cannot be medicated away.
However: I also admit to being a little leery of this term being used outside the way in which it was first used, in the writings of St. John of the Cross, who wrote about a very specific part of the spiritual life that, while it bears some similarity to the way you use the term, has everything to do with purging everthing in our lives not of God in order to better understand our need for God. In the end, it is about a painful process of letting go the things we don’t need and our illusions, as you say — but not to grow in self-empowerment. It’s about, as John of the Cross understood it, learning to love and want for our lives only what God, who IS love, wants. It’s rather distinctly not about self-empowerment — it’s about a relationship of love with God who loved us first. The “dark night” as John of the Cross described it is the purgative process in which individuals willingly dis-attach from things that might ordinarily be viewed as good (comforts, ego, pride in achievements) for something far better that our souls long for: true communion with God. It’s nothing God forces, and it’s usually “empowering” only in the sense that it clarifies everything about any life we might think we want to live outside of the Love for which we were made.
And no — I didn’t drink any Kool-Aid, and yes, I really do value your thinking and sharing. Thank you.
I’m sorry I mistyped your name, Ms. Geertsen — my apologies.
I fully agree with you, thank you for your thoughtful and well-articulated comment. My perspectives are greatly informed by studying Christian mystics including St. John of the Cross. My concept of “self-empowerment” means getting closer to God, and doing so, we are empowered to do on earth what God calls us to do, which heals ourselves and others. You give me food for thought on how to share/express the concept of “self-empowerment” as there are many understandings of it, some of which are quite shallow.
