Dark Night of the Senses, or Dark Night of the Soul?

Healing The 1000 Year Pain Between Men & Women with Andrew Barnes

There is much confusion and misinformation about the “Dark Night of the Soul”, which is the fourth step out of five in the process of the Divine Marriage. Many people confuse step two, “Dark Night of the Senses”, with the “Dark Night of the Soul” though, where those who experience step two believe that they have “arrived” when they reach step three, which is the “illumination” phase. In step two’s Dark Night of the Senses, we lose […] Read more »

Why we Over-commit in Life

split feminine

Often our tendency to over-commit comes from a shadow. It comes from a need to prove that we are smart enough, worthy enough, successful enough, to please others or obtain validation and approval from the outside world. ~The Ford Institute The most successful people in our world are over committed to a particular area of their lives, it is not motivated by their creative passions, but by their passion to make a distant (or not […] Read more »

Why It’s Important To Understand Your Dark Side

light-dark-dragons

Reposted from: Collective-Evolution | by Milan Karmeli When you were little, were you afraid of the dark? Most of us were. And I doubt we ever thought to question this fear. We were almost naturally taught to be afraid of the dark, because the dark is full of unknown things that might hurt us. But what usually happened when you turned the light on? You learned the unknown things were not so scary. And they were not so […] Read more »

The Seven Sermons to the Dead

The Seven Sermons to the Dead

Carl Jung is a pioneer in reviving the concepts of Gnostic awakening and sacred sexuality, having brought concepts such as individuation, synchronicity, the collective unconscious, archetypes, extroversion and introversion, shadow work, and more. He did this profound work not only on his own, but with help from his wife Emma Jung, his lovers Sabina Spielrein and Toni Wolff, and his spirit guide Philemon. The foundation of his later work was originally written in six black diaries, […] Read more »

Shadow Quotes

As you may already know, we place a lot of focus on exploring our shadow side in the Hive, as we feel it holds the key to unlocking our ultimate sensual, financial, and relational potential in life. Because of this, we thought we’d pass along our favorite quotes on the shadow, that most dastardly aspect of ourselves that we wish we could conceal, but once gazed upon fully, allows us to transform into a magnificent […] Read more »

The Importance of Feedback & Reclaiming our Personal Power

depressed tenage girl

Each feeling we have is a feedback device, and like a speedometer in the car, it gives feedback about what is going on within each moment. When the feedback is related to any of the three core negative feelings of anger, sadness, or fear, we can look for a similar experience from our first eight years of life (the first eight years is where we get programmed, since we are in an open state of […] Read more »

Only One Path?

The Four Soul Categories

Do all paths lead to the same place?  Or is there more than one path, and do they lead to different places?  Solipsism, the belief that “all paths lead to the same place”, is a dangerous notion that has infiltrated the New Age movement, and polluted modern spirituality; it allows parasitic evil to spread without much resistance, while people spiritual bypass with their “love and light”, and a glossed over blank stare.  One of the biggest fallacies of […] Read more »

Pain & Pleasure

light-dark-dragons

Joy was separated when it entered duality, into fifty percent pain and fifty percent pleasure; pain and pleasure are opposite sides of the same coin, with pain being the shadow side of joy, and pleasure as its light side. Some avoid the former and chase the latter, which creates an imbalance and an unsatisfying happiness with diminishing returns, while others avoid pleasure and thus experience less pain, and live a joyless life as a monk […] Read more »

The School of Unlearning

Magic Boock

I used EFT (meridian tapping) to remove many of my belief patterns, and then I found Osho, and when I read some of his teachings, the things I was conveying in classes and to clients was pretty much the same. It is when functioning without beliefs that we tend to understand and operate in alignment with many core truths of the universe! It is from this “unlearned” place that all of the Hive’s Tantric, Gnostic, and other […] Read more »

How to Fight Evil

How to Fight Evil

At least from a Gnostic perspective, yes, evil exists, but it isn’t just an external enemy, it also exists within each one of us, it si known as STS (Service to Self), and is about the God spark consciousness serving itself instead of experiencing balance and serving all.  According to the Gnostic author Montalk, at Montalk.net, in the Ra material, STO (Service to Others) is balanced, and that balance is the positive polarity, while STS […] Read more »

Robert A. Johnson – The Double Animus: Two Stories

Robert A. Johnson – The Double Animus: Two Stories

The anima is the inner feminine of a man, while the animus is the inner masculine of the woman; each is the expectation that a person has for their external opposite other.  Oftentimes, we are able to experience an either/or fulfillment of our expectation for our external opposite other, and in this story, the double animus, the double internal masculine of a woman, is explored.  Enjoy! “One will no longer attempt to find somebody who […] Read more »

Boundaries are the Result of Individuation, and not the Cause

boundaries

Boundaries are a great concept for self-preservation in theory, but they are only possible when a person is free from enmeshment.  Any and all boundaries attempted while enmeshed are actually laws and rules meant to keep a person safe within an enmeshed reality; they require fighting dominance with dominance, even if it is in a supposed enlightened and spiritualized form.  A person without boundaries needs to enact laws and create rules in an attempt to […] Read more »

Carl Jung: Thirteen Quotations on the Shadow

carljung

Originally blogged by STEPHEN PARKER, PH.D on JANUARY 26, 2011 on jungcurrents.com. The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge. Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14 Filling the conscious mind with […] Read more »

The Hive is…a Community

Diverse World People Holding Jigsaw Pieces

From what we have been able to see from within, there are two different awakenings happening, the first is a managed awakening, and it is for those who still feel the need to be saved from tyranny.  Unfortunately, whenever you need somebody to save you, you become dependent on them, and the savior eventually is revealed to be twice the villain as the first villain; out of the frying pan and into the fire, or so […] Read more »

Integration Creates Neutrality

Silhouette of a hacker isloated on black

Integration of the opposites within duality creates energetic neutrality. I see  duality as a binary computer code, with zeroes and one’s, while unity as a ternary computer code, with negative one’s, zeroes, and one’s. Where the predictive nature of duality is imbalanced with haves (one’s or negative one’s) and have not’s (zeroes), which is why there is the perpetual tension between domination and submission.  It can be the dark side with negative one (-1) and zero (0), […] Read more »

Individuation Is Unity

“Full individuation of Self, the apex of individuality, is unity consciousness, as it is the height of unique Self-expression. Unity is not losing yourself into a mass blob of consciousness, it is individuating your Self from it.” ~Nathan & Aline Read more »
