  1. salaam alaikum, I am a longtime follower of your blog…there are times when it (the ups and downs) become intense…in addition to Quran, hadiths, and following the examples of the Ahlul Bayt (the Holy Household) I have found a lot of everyday guidance from Eckhart Tolle…specifically the “pain body” concept, and the idea of accepting (not resisting) the pain in one’s life…it is only through the acceptance that the transformation can happen, and the knowledge/energy locked in the ‘pain’ can be released! I have found this extremely healing! Are you familiar with this? Considering how widely-read you are I think you might???
