The dark side is there in many ways for precautionary reasons. It is the part of you that you don’t really want to tap in to but that you might need to in case of emergency. Now even though you are not manifesting any type of emergency that would call for that dark side to emerge, you still need to see it, to know it’s there, and to embrace it as an aspect of who you are.
It does not need to be feared, however, but many of you will fear it because of those instances in past lives where the dark side came out. When it is expressed, it can be quite destructive. You can go far beyond the intended purpose of this dark side once it is let out of the closet, and that’s what most of you have experienced in at least one past life. And that is why it sits in the corner and is not acknowledged.
But as you ascend, all parts of you must make the journey as well, and that means facing the dark side. It means you must acknowledge what is a part of you, even if you don’t want it to be the largest part of you. And just because something exists as a potentiality within you does not mean that you must exude it all the time. And if you ever do have to access your dark side to set a boundary or to protect yourself, it does not need to get out of control.
