According to some, all Unicorns are white… or whiter than white – so white that looking at them almost hurts your eyes. I think that’s racist toward all the coloured Unicorns I have met. My black Unicorn friend is not happy about this myth at all.
White is equated as a superior colour by people like Diana Cooper who in The Wonder of Unicorns claims that horses evolve and that white horses are more ‘evolved’ than other colour horses. The white horses evolve further into unicorns when they ‘ascend,’ apparently. This makes no sense at all and the unicorns themselves have assured me that it is absolute horseshit, because unlike teachers of ‘ascension,’ they have a sense of humour about human foolishness and aspirations to absolute purity.
Purity is never an end goal. Purity serves a purpose in removing distractions for temporary focused effort – that is all. Life is messy and dirty… and that is OK. Also, purity has nothing to do with colour – Don’t you ever let any of those Unicorn racists tell you differently!
The second Unicorn my Unicorn guide introduced me to was a black Unicorn. He is magnificent. His dark brown eyes have flashes of purple in them, as does his black mane. The purple is mixed with fine strands of platinum that makes his mane shimmer when he throws his head up to neigh. His black hooves give off sparks of silver, gold, turquoise and purple when he proudly prances across the sky.
Black unicorns have a gentle, comforting presence that can carry us through those times when life gets too much.
Have you ever woken up and felt like the only viable option is to pull your cover over your head and go back to sleep because what is waiting out there is simply more than you can handle?
Are you grieving after the loss of a loved one?
Did your lover just dump you or is the one you are hankering after not returning your messages?
These are all perfectly valid times to call on one of the black unicorns to soothe your soul and help you sit with what is until you reach that all-important state of acceptance which enables you to come up with solutions and/or to move forward.
Black unicorns teach us the beauty and value of night-time lessons (the things that keep us up at night), the dark night of the soul, struggles, loss and sorrow. They help us see that ultimately, everything in life can help grow the soul. That doesn’t mean we should not grieve when it is tough or when we suffer loss – We absolutely should…
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

Black unicorns are not just about the tough times in life though. They have an exquisite beauty and mystery all of their own. Think of the beauty of the starry night sky on a crisp clear night when you are able to see the Milky Way… Think of the joy that this wondrous sight fills you with – That is the joy of black Unicorns.
Black Unicorns are some of the finest and rarest unicorns you can hope to meet. They don’t bother with love and lighters who spend their days in endless spiritual bypass mode though. You will only see them if you accept that life is a mix of light and dark and don’t try to shift the balance in favour of the light.
