Usually, the dark side comes in at night because we are in a more receptive mode .   It comes in through our dreams, our nightmares or at times when we just cannot sleep at all.  This unexpressed side of us will continue to talk to us until we listen.  In fact, if we don't listen, it simply gets louder and louder.  So pay attention when you are not able to sleep, your subconscious mind is communicating with you. Take the time to write things down and then look at your writings during the day. We are usually able to have a clearer sense of things in the daylight.  Seize the night....
