Dark Night of the Soul: Identity Crisis

Healing Hands

I´m having a crisis, I feel my “awakening pointless and like I´m talking to a wall. I feel death inside, nothing inspires me, I can´t find the fire inside me, no matter what I do. I just dont know what to do anymore.

This is know as a point of the Dark Night of the Soul where you are facing your own identity crisis as the old you dissolves and the New Soul is born. As Carl Jung States: 
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.“ 
I don’t see this as you facing depression as many would try to self-diagnose you , i see this as you being faced with your shadow self. Ah time to bring out some older articles. Our Shadow Self is the antithesis of our soul, it’s basically the fundamentally aspect of the unconscious that wants to destroy itself. So what happens is you are faced with illusions of the Ego mind that are coming to the surface for clearing. I actually imagine many of us to start going through this again as we enter into the Equinox. The Equinox always brings a deep sometimes dark change and it seems many are starting to face the Dark Night these days….

Anyway this is an article from Carl Jung about the Shadow Self:  http://theawakenedstate.tumblr.com/post/74493412736/the-shadow-self-integration-of-the-soul#notes

Also here is some info on the Dark Night of the Soul: 
I know i’m throwing a lot of articles at you but this will at least help you understand what is happening to you which will help clarify and give you a deep peace of mind.
The best way to cope through going through an identity crisis is realize that this won’t last forever. The Universe is telling you to look within yourself and face yourself, stepping into your own abyss the good, the bad and the ugly. The fact that you feel death inside leads me to think that you are facing a deep kundalini transformation. The Card of Death in tarot is about change, transformation, death and rebirth, the ending of cycles, transitions into New Beginnings. This may seem like a hard time now but what it is creating is a beautiful new beginning for you. It is the rebirth of your Soul. 

we seem to be getting themes of Letting Go today but that is truly what the Universe is telling you. The more you cling to the old the more it will cause friction and cognitive dissonance within your life. When we’re able to let go, we release and clear old energy patterns. This is honestly the perfect time to do that because we are headed right into Mercury Retrograde which is always about revisiting our past wounds, past relationships and past old habits. Get ready for lots of Clearing. This is really about Letting Go and learning to embrace the New. You are never truly talking to a wall, your guides, your higher self, We are all listening.

Also since you mention fire, the solar plexus came up for me, maybe this is also due to something with your Solar Plexus needing healing. Fire is the element of the Solar Plexus, it is also prone to create depression, feeling lack of willpower, no direction, the maturation of the Ego it is also deeply connected to our Mother. It is the womb of where we are born so naturally when we go through a transformation it would start with clearing out the Solar Plexus because it is one of the most important aspects of learning to Transcend our Ego self. Everything is connected. You should look into some Citrine or Yellow Calcite. Surround yourself with Yellow, you need bright colors back in your life. Find yourself by looking within and letting go of what no longer serves you. Instead of not feeling the fire, find a way to start kindling it again into your life by taking a direction, taking an action even if it’s a simple one. Find the savior instead of the Victim. It sounds to me this is very much like a deficient solar plexus. If you even think about the basics of this, lost identity. Id. Id is the ego. Solar plexus is home to the ego. See all connects 😉
