The times are definitely changing and "Normal" seems to have disappeared. Every day there is change, from minute to minute and hour to hour, day to day.
In the Celtic world, this time of the year as we move into the dark, is the time the Fomorians become more active. They are the spirits that create chaos and destruction in our world.
Today as I write this blog, we have a raging snowstorm occuring in October! That is definitely not "normal". There have been devastating hurricanes and earthquakes occurring. Our world is changing, not only in the way we live, but in our physical world as well.
The ancient Celts saw the Fomorians not as evil, but as a necessary force to bring about change so new life can blossom again. Other cultures have this as well. The Goddess Kali is a destructive and definitely a disruptive Goddess that destroys so new life can emerge. The Dark Night of the Soul creates wisdom.
I remember a time in my life when my whole life seemed to be falling apart and I received the message from spirit that " it was the time of Kali." I had no idea what that meant at that time as I had never heard of Kali before this. As I searched her out I began to realize that this was exactly what was happening in my life.
In those times when we have lost the "normal" in our lives, we need to go with the flow and trust that we are being led. The changing time is hard and can be confusing, but if we trust, we will come right again.
The Fomorian energy brings a balance in our world, the balance between the light and the dark. The shaman's role is to create balance and harmony in the world. So let us stay out of the fear of change and know that we are coming into balance once again, and once we are back in balance, we will have new wisdom to share with the world.
Blessings to you this day,
