We Become Powerful Warriors as We Learn to Purge, Transmute & Heal During the Process of SHADOW WORK… It’s a Deeply Transformative Period Enabling Accelerated Healing Resulting in a Higher Vibration

– Susanna E

Ascending from 3D to 5D consciousness is a process involving many shifts in awareness and shedding of the ego which can challenge you to your very core. It’s a path of facing your darkest shadows; confronting limiting belief systems; and shattering every illusion you have ever come across in your reality. This extends beyond this lifetime as it also involves clearing out karmic baggage from past lifetimes and your ancestral lineage. This process is designed to help purify and cleanse all negative conditioning, programming and core wounding so that you can heal and upgrade your vibration to a higher level of consciousness.

To put this into a visual context, imagine that your soul is a bright sparkly diamond covered with layers upon layers of wrapping paper. Each layer of wrapping paper represents all the negative conditioning, programming and karmic baggage which your soul has collected over many lifetimes and throughout your ancestral lineage. As you unwrap each layer you start to remember who you truly are as your soul starts to become more visible and shine more brightly. Suddenly you become more conscious of who you are, where you come from and what your mission on planet Earth is. Your amnesia from 3D conditioning and programming starts to melt away as you awaken more from the hypnotic spell you have been put under for many lifetimes.


This is the beautiful and often bittersweet process of waking up and transitioning from 3D to 5D consciousness. Your awareness rapidly expands as you awaken to the true nature of your soul and strip away your ego – however this can only be achieved through deep shadow work and inner healing.

Here are 11 signs that you’re purging and going through the “Dark Night of the Soul”:

1. You’re Confronted by your Childhood Wounds

You will start to see that your issues, addictions and negative behavioral patterns can be traced back to traumatic events in your childhood. Perhaps you didn’t receive enough love and support from your parents which has severely shattered your self-esteem. This may encourage you to start facing issues from your upbringing in order to resolve any problems you are currently experiencing.


2. Intense Emotional Triggering

You may find people in your life triggering you and bringing up all your unhealed emotions at an alarming rate. Your emotions which may have been suppressed for years suddenly come up to the surface in order to be released. You might find yourself crying uncontrollably or screaming into a pillow in an explosive but cathartic way.

3. Depression/ Anxiety/ Bipolar Mood Swings


Your emotions may feel unpredictable as you experience states of depression, anxiety or bipolar mood swings. You could find yourself feeling like you’re stuck in a black hole as your ego battles with your soul. More layers of negative conditioning and programming rise to the surface for healing.

4. Needing to Isolate Yourself

It will feel natural to desire your own space and privacy in order to release dark shadow aspects within yourself. Being alone and rugged up in a comfortable environment will be essential for your sanity so you can express your most inner thoughts and feelings freely without judgment. You will also feel highly sensitive to busy crowded places and other people’s energy.

5. Extreme Tiredness, Fatigue & Disinterest in Mundane Responsibilities

This process of purging may result in extreme tiredness and fatigue as you turn inward for healing and self-reflection. Your external reality will seem unimportant as you put all your energy and focus on your inner world so you can heal. Everyday obligations and responsibilities will also escape your awareness during this intense period.


6. Heightened Sensitivity to Chemicals & Toxins

You may find yourself unable to tolerate cosmetics, fragrances and skincare products which contain harmful chemicals as your sensitivity becomes heightened during purging. Food and water containing toxins will also become unbearable as your physical body craves detoxification.

7. Fasting or Requiring Less Food

You may lose your appetite or require less food than usual as your physical body goes through this process. This puts less stress on your body as you cleanse and purify your energy.

8. Painful Memories From the Past Resurface

Flashbacks from past situations and experiences may spontaneously resurface in an attempt to show you aspects of yourself which require healing. Perhaps you need to forgive yourself or another person in order to free yourself from resentment. Your subconscious mind will provide powerful clues and insights during this time of self-reflection.

9. Aspects of Your Life Start to Fall Apart

Your life may start to crumble all around you – perhaps you lose your job or a relationship suddenly ends. Situations which no longer serve you will be forced out of your life in order to clear out karmic baggage at an accelerated rate. You’re shifting faster to create space for higher vibrational people and circumstances into your life.

10. You Question Your Sanity

It may feel like you’re losing your mind at times as you continue shedding your ego self. Allow yourself to go with the flow instead of resisting so you can get through the process with ease. You may feel like you’re going crazy but trust and surrender to the moment as much as you can.

11. Physical Aches/Illness/Disease


Your physical body may speed up the process if you resist the emotional aspects of purging. You may experience headaches, nausea, cold/flu and a range of other symptoms when your energy is out of alignment. Allow the process while you are getting energetically upgraded, but also pay attention to whether your physical symptoms are manifesting in order to show you that serious changes are needed in your life.
