By thinking that you must discard of your emotional baggage, you are labelling it as separate from yourself. You are subconsciously telling yourself that you are not whole and that you cannot be loved as you are.
In order to truly let go of your emotional baggage, you must do the opposite; by practising radical self-acceptance.
Remember that there are several stages to awakening. We can sometimes appear to awaken all at once into bliss and union, only to then fade back into darkness. This darkness does not mean you are forgetting your spiritual journey; you are simply going deeper. Honour this space, too.
I desperately asked for a miracle, and a powerful healing experience manifested; the Northern Lights in the shape of an angel.
To me, this experience showed me that you can receive Miracles if you ask for them and know that you are worthy of them.
Mother Earth can heal herself rapidly, and IS healing herself rapidly, as we journey inwards and make peace with our inner masculine and feminine co-existing as one.
Sometimes, spiritual awakening feels dark confusing and lonely. Yet when you are lost in the dark, you eventually realise that YOU are the light.
