7 Omens That Predict A Dark Night Of The Soul

No matter how spiritually awakened you are and how hard you try to stay positive, you are simply a human after all. There are periods in life when we lose hope and interest in anything.

This state is called “the Dark Night of the Soul” and there are several indicators you are entering it.

What Is The Dark Night Of The Soul?

The Dark Night of the soul is a state where an individual’s soul no longer sees hope, happiness, or connection.

It is a state of complete numbness, separation from the universe, and feelings of melancholy. This state can be quite depressing for an individual.

Even though you have done all the spiritual work, and you know how to deal with negative thoughts, it is sometimes beyond your powers when the Dark Night arrives. This can be caused by several factors such as:

  • tradimento
  • loss of someone close
  • an event that made you doubt your spirituality
  • no longer feeling like you belong where you are
  • a sudden need for a change, and more.

The Dark Night of the soul can be a form of spiritual depression, indeed.

Individuals affected by it usually ask themselves difficult questions such as: “What is my purpose on this Earth?”, or “Is there God or an afterlife? Am I good enough to have good things in this life at all?”, etc.

The Dark Night is not the same as depressione. Depression is a medical condition that needs to be treated with medicine, lifestyle changes, etc.

The Dark Night is a term that describes depressione spirituale – losing purpose in life, having an existential crisis, and seeing no hope in moving forward spiritually.
