From Dark Night to Soul Light-
By Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia Killion
excerpted from March 18, 2020 Cosmic Newsletter
The darker the night,
the greater the inner light….
Dear Cosmic & Psychic Friends, hello there. I hope that you & your loved ones are holding
up well & weathering this cosmic storm as best as you can. I’m sure that you have noticed by
now that things have gotten a bit crazy out there in the outer world lately. I don’t know if you
recall or not, but back at the end of 2019, I predicted in this newsletter that the energies of 2020 would be HEAVY and intense
and that this would be a GAME-CHANGER year.
Of course, at the time of making these predictions, I had no idea that it would get
THIS heavy & intense, nor did I have any idea that the energies would specifically manifest as a world-wide virus spread
& the accompanying mass fear & panic.
At the time of that forecast (end of December 2019 and then again
in early January), I only saw the general patterns of heavy & intense energy for 2020, and a feeling that we would be
somehow stripped bare and challenged & restricted like never before. At the time, I did try to share
this message with as many people that I could, in hopes of empowering them & preparing them for the challenges that would
But alas, as my friend (and fellow astrologer) Ross Long says, “few look to the astrological aspects".
And I would add, even fewer actually LISTEN and take note when someone like me tries to point out what
might be reasonably expected in regards to specific shifts. But of course, YOU, dear cosmic newsletter
reader, are among the exceptional people who have the wisdom & good sense to pay attention to cosmic shifts.
is out of retrograde, but NOT YET out of its post-retrograde shadow….
I explained in a newsletter earlier this month, retrograde Mercury already stationed back direct on March 9th.
However, we are still in the post-retrograde shadow until Sunday, March 29th. Until now and then,
we are still in suspension (energetically speaking) and things may continue to feel as if they are on hold for a little while
wouldn’t never say that Mercury retrograde was the “cause” of recent events and world-wide panic, but I
would say that this latest retrograde certainly has ADDED to the confusion & chaos. I expect that some of the confusion
and chaos may begin to lift after March 29th.
At the very least, Mercury leaving its
post-retrograde shadow could help tempers, fears & emotions to settle down just a bit, and assist people with being more
calm & rational. Which I think will be just wonderful, as a calming and centering of the collective
psyche could certainly help society to begin running more smoothly again.
To be clear, I am NOT saying that things will go back to “normal”
overnight starting on March 30th. Frankly, I don’t believe that we can go back to
where we were before this current crisis began—we can only go FORWARD to create something new. And
with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction that is in effect on again and off again for most of this year, I’m pretty certain
that it will take us quite some time to regroup and rebuild.
Nonetheless, it will help to life spirits
just a bit once we are free & clear from the residual effects of this current post-retrograde fog.
Are We Experiencing a Spiritual Ragnorak?
On January 11th of this
year, I posted a video on You-Tube about the heavy and intense energies of 2020 and how I thought that these energies would
lead to a “dark night of the soul” for many. I named that video “Tree of Life & Standing Strong During Your Own Personal Ragnorak.”
of you who don’t know, Ragnorak is basically the Nordic doomsday or apocalypse myth. Which
is interesting, considering that it almost feels like we are going through a COLLECTIVE Ragnorak at the moment.
from that video that I want to touch briefly on again here is how it feels to me that 2020 will be a year of inevitable—but
also, unwelcome, ENDINGS. It is a time of purging and letting go, and also a time of going through the
fires of initiation and burning off all that does not serve our higher good.
Most likely, this year will also be a TOUGHENING UP year that will
require us to become more STRONG & MATURE. For the intense Capricorn energies that we are under the
rays of for most of this year demand ACCOUNTABILITY and taking personal responsibility for as much of your own life as you
This doesn’t mean that we can’t work together in cooperation to help ensure the good of
each other in 2020. However, it does mean that spiritually & emotionally speaking, we are being called
to evolve beyond the tendency to try to hoist our own issues off on others, or to point fingers or blame others for our situation.
saying goes, whenever you point a finger at someone, there are several more fingers pointing back at YOU.)
These are very
KARMIC energies operating here in 2020, and we are all getting a chance to FACE OUR FEARS and subconscious issues and clean
out our karmic baggage. Which will hopefully lead to more of us becoming more kind, loving, spiritually
centered & cosmically-orientated people—the journey should be interesting!
By the way, in order to face our
fears, these fears will actually have to be triggered and brought up to the surface for us to look at. (Which
is what is currently happening with the world-wide panic.) The key when confronting subconscious issues
& fears it to approach these things with WISDOM & DETACHMENT. Learn to OBSERVE & WITNESS your
fears, rather than letting them overcome you or take the reins and lead you around like a pony.
The Dark Night (but not of the soul)
Last night, I asked my guides what wisdom They might offer us about
this collective dark night of the soul we are going through, and they answered by saying something like this:
“The darker the night, the greater the LIGHT that is called for. The darker the night, the
greater the INNER LIGHT can shine forth.”
“What you think is a dark night of the soul
is really only a dark night for the ego; for the soul has its own light greater than any darkness, and it is only the ego
that experiences suffering, fear, despair, doubt & panic, not the soul.”
Bam! That message
hit me like a lightening bold of inspiration. Hearing these words come forth, it became very clear to me
that while my ego may be suffering with worry, fear or despair in regards to present world conditions, the soul is still very much at ease and is shining the light that
can help dispel the fear and anxiety.
the same is true on the collective level, for we are collectively experiencing a dark night for the collective ego, and the
collective mind is filled with panic, fear and despair. Even so, the collective has a SOUL too, which can
unleash the light and beauty needed to restore equilibrium and peace again.
This dark night of the ego may be necessary (cosmically speaking)
to help us face & recognize any scarcity beliefs, survival issues and fears that we have buried inside.
lives, many of us have experienced death by sudden illness or plague type events. Or we may have had the
past-life experience of having lost a loved one in this way, or having had our livelihood or survival negatively impacted
by illness related circumstances. For some, these kinds of traumatic past life experiences (and the intense
fear & anxiety associated with them) are being re-triggered by fear-based reports currently broadcasting almost constantly
via the media & social media.
Furthermore, many of us have at least one or two (if not more) ANCESTORS who died from
some type of respiratory related illness, and the fear, panic, and hysteria around that can also be carried through the bloodline,
in the physical & spiritual DNA.
Even if you don’t believe in past lives, the idea that we
inherit fears from our ancestors isn’t so difficult to believe, even if you only consider it a matter of ideas &
beliefs being carried on from one generation to the next.
In any case, it is natural and healthy to have some concern when
faced with a situation such that we are collectively facing at the moment. However, having some
concern, and taking reasonable, prudent and wise action, is VERY different than acting from the unconscious & irrational
fear and terror of the ego.
In the days ahead, I hope that more and more of us will strive to connect with the
light and the peace of the SOUL, rather than only coming from the fear & panic of the ego.
As for me, whatever will come, I am not afraid. For I walk in the light. And for those
of us who walk in the light, neither death nor worldly plagues have any true power over us, for we know our lives did not
begin here in this world, nor will they end once we leave this earthly realm.
For a short time, I did have a brief moment
of empathic panic and fear during which I was telepathically absorbing the fear of the masses--but once I realized it was
not my own fear, I just shook it off, and went back to dealing with the situation calmly & serenely again.
Whatever may come, I am trusting in Spirit, and trusting in my own inner spirit too, to light the way.
one, no matter what happens, never forget that you too are an eternal soul! And if you can, lean in to that wise, mature and intuitive soul-part of yourself,
and let it guide you in your journey in the days ahead. For these may be trying times we are living in,
but they are nothing compared to the vast wisdom and healing presence of the soul and Spirit itself.
next time, sending you healing peace and light, and wishing you an ever-deepening connection with the light of your own soul!
