18 Signs You Are Experiencing A Dark Night Of The Soul, Otherwise Known As An Existential Crisis Avatar

2. YOU START HAVING PURGE SYSTEMS:
For some people, this is an actual gagging motion. For others, it's gravitating toward healthier foods, feeling unexplainable chills, heaviness or lightness, wanting to sweat more, or decluttering your home and social life.
In my case, the purge symptoms had already been going on for at least 8 years since giving up marijuana in 2011 after a severe 45 year addiction.
The purging was expressed in eating less (OMAD = One Meal A Day), feeling extremely light in losing 40 pounds, as well as floating almost ether-like while simplifying my tasks.
And the wholistic cleansing manifested itself as I purposely completely quieted my mind and slowed down my body to be 100% present in the NOW.
Also, I started giving away or getting rid of things that no longer had meaning for me that others could use for their benefit.
What good were stacks and stacks of very fine clothes that I hardly ever wore? Just to satisfy my ego of looking at the insane abundance of them?
Giving away several large IKEA sacks of clothes was ~ pardon the pun, a burden off my back.
The same applied for taking my paralytic perfectionism down a few notches, by finally accepting things just as they were.
Also, I started instantly and constantly changing old programs, patterns and protocols to make my life a lot easier and much more simple.
3. YOU FEEL OVERWHELMINGLY STUCK OR "LOST":
The feeling of being "stuck" usually comes up when we're beginning to recognize all of the limitations that we place on ourselves.
Feeling "lost" just means you are no longer living by the script you made up for yourself ~ you're opening up to a completely new way of living, and a totally new life.
Of course it feels like you don't know where you're headed!
Since this “dark night” process for me manifested totally backwards in my near-death or actually dying and coming back to life experience, I have been working on eliminating my self-induced limitations for several years.
Thank God, because I mindfully eliminated the script that I had previously written for myself before 9 years ago, I chose to completely quit taking 15 types of drugs and healed my sexual and alcohol addictions that had me "stuck" since 1966.
Since I know that this third dimensional existence is only temporal, I really, really know
where I am headed ~ to live eternally in Heaven!
