The topic of the Dark Spirits is one of the most avoided, swept under the rug, and hush-hushed about areas of mediumship.
No one wants to talk about them, everyone wants to avoid them, and everyone hopes they never have to encounter one.
But. . . the Dark Ones are the main reason many people, including myself at one point, and many of my clients, are afraid to open and explore their gifts.
Upon opening your intuitive gifts, you may be afraid to attract something dark, something lower, something somehow sinister. You know there are Spirits and you know, that at least some of those Spirits aren’t in ‘the Light.’ At all costs, you want to avoid interacting with the Dark Ones, but how do you prevent them, when you don’t even know what exactly attracts them and then, what exactly, repels them.
The Dark Ones
With everything, there is a balance. With happiness, there is sadness. With pleasure, there is pain. And with Light, there is Dark. With one of the spectrum, there is always an opposite end of the spectrum as a matter of balance.
This is the way of the Universe. The Dark Ones are a group of Spiritual Beings that do not live in the ‘the Light.’ They are not stuck, they do not exist in some limbo somewhere, they exist in ‘the Dark’. In the realm with a lack of Divine Energy. Not in the Realm with Angels. Not in the Realm with Deceased Loved Ones. Certainly not in the Realm with Ascended Masters. They exist in the Realm of the Dark. There are dark human spirits and there are non-humans dark souls.
Because there IS a realm of Light, there is also a realm of Dark. Just as there is a part of you that is of Light, and a part of you, that sometimes feels Dark. There are days when you feel dark; there are days when we all feel dark. We feel down, we feel depressed, we feel worthless for being in our pajamas at noon still, we feel too lazy to make ourselves something to eat, and we don’t feel good enough to anyone. These are the dark days. You know these days, and you’ve spent time this way, whether you like to admit it openly or not.
But these days, you are spending less and less time in your darkness. Now, you are feeling inspired, uplifted, excited about the future, curious about new ideas, and happy to make yourself some ravioli for dinner and have a glass of wine. Mostly, you are on the up and up now, living in the Light more and more - and forgetting all about the days of sadness and worry - the days in the darkness.
At birth, we are mostly all born as beings of the Light.
As spiritual beings, coming from the Light, intended to set about our new life in the Path of the Light. When we are born of this Earth, there is always the intention that we will follow our Divine Path and in doing so, to spread, and exude more light, as we walk this Path. But we must remember, that we are also given choices. No one is being forced to walk the Divine Path, once they walk the Earth. Each day, there is the choice to walk the Path of the Light or walk the line, on the edge of Darkness. The more days that we make a choice to walk beside the edge of Darkness, the closer and more tempted we feel to cross this line, and walk the Path of the Dark. We are all given this choice, each day, as we grow through childhood and become more sentient beings able to make independent decisions. As such, the choice is always ours to make, and ours alone. The more days that we wake up and intend to walk the Path of the Light, the further and further we propel ourselves away from the line of the Dark. The harder and harder it then becomes, to fall to the temptation of the Dark.
In order to attract Dark Spirits, Dark Ones, you have to spend a significant amount of time living in the darkness, more days that you wake up, and intend to walk along the Dark line.
Are you living in fear or worry about the Dark Ones or Negative Spirits? Stop. Having fear, having worry, having darkness, is exactly what attract these beings. The more you focus on embracing the light, embracing positivity, embracing the Divine Light, the less of a chance Dark Ones even care about you at all.
The Dark Ones live in the Realm of the Dark, and primarily, they enjoy pulling people over to the Dark, people that walk close to the Line of the Dark. Just as Light spirits, enjoy getting you on their team of positivity, love, and hope, and are cheering for you, each day, to continue your Path in the Light.
Dark Ones can appear in a variety of ways, they can look like dragons or reptiles, gremlins or goblins, or simply a heavy shadow presence of energy around. They can transform shape and put their energy into the energy of other beings. They can even, take the form of human beings that walk among us. Just as Angels, and Spirit Guides, can also take this form.
Have you ever been around someone that gave you the creeps, gave you the flat out chills? Someone, who, you feel, you could just feel *shivers* the darkness coming from them?
Chances are, they were won over by the Dark Ones.
That doesn’t mean this person is becoming evil or will perform evil acts (though its possible), it simply means the Light leaving them. Their Light is leaving them. And more darkness is coming in, more days are being spent, experiencing sadness, anger, and pain. Not malice and evil.
If a person who is ‘at risk’ for being swayed by the Dark Ones, they can be brought over and brought back by others who are living in the Light. But not always, sometimes, there is not anything one can do - but the person themselves - to pull up out of the hold of the Darkness. Just as, there are some days, when there is nothing anyone who can pull you out of your Light!
Have you ever experienced days of Darkness? Days where you feel sad, upset, angry, and isolated? Where you just don’t want to see the light of day?
Perhaps you’ve had many of these days, maybe even years of days like this. And then - out of nowhere, someone appeared that cheered you up, inspired you, and make you decide one day, that this would be the day you started enjoying life again?
This person could have been a new lover, an old friend, a therapist, or even, the take-out delivery driver that left a kind note on your receipt. Whoever it was, that person, shined a Light for you. Someone once offered you a torch, a path to see your way out of the Darkness, and into the Light. And it is possible, for you to do this, for someone else, and help a friend, a stranger, a loved one, come back to the side of the Light.
There is a Light Side, and because there is a Light Side, there is also a Dark Side.
Anything that creates light, must also cast a shadow somewhere.
The beings that Live in the Dark, the Dark Ones, they can exist in a variety of forms and shape, including human, and can exist in the realm of the Dark, at any time of their lives - living and after death. Thus, there are Dark Ones walking around, still alive, on Earth.
But, there is no need to be scared. The more you focus on Light and embracing Spiritual Growth and Development, the less interesting you will be to anyone in the Dark, interesting in convincing you to cross the Line and walk in the Path of the Dark. At some point, you can’t be reached anymore, you’re too much in the Light, too far propelled along your Path in the Light, that you remain, forever surrounded, in the golden Light of the Divine.
As you are developing, try not to spend too much time in fear of the Dark Ones, or in worry that you will encounter them. If you do encounter these beings, you will know, and all that is required is you make it very clear that you aren’t interested in what they’re selling. Not at all.
You can even make boundaries now, that will prevent anything Dark from being attracted to you.
