Wow. Well. Here we are. Many voices predicted we would arrive here, but it was just so hard to believe. So hard to fathom.
I’m not talking about the voices who foretold the outcome of the election. I’m talking about the voices of long ago. Voices who have, through centuries and even thousands of years, foretold of this time. This time of darkness. This time of possible awakening. Some prophecies speak of this time in apocalyptic terms. And although this may not be ‘the’ apocalypse the dire nature of where we stand certainly holds that energy.
A sister just sent me this statement from The Great Council of Grandmothers. It is worth sharing, for the clarity and the hope.
We are watching you as you struggle to find safe harbor in the world around you as storms and disappointments rage everywhere. Nations are quaking now, the land under your feet is quaking, hallowed institutions are falling and it’s difficult to find steady ground.
What is taking place in your world is not a terrible mistake. The present upheaval in society must occur. And no good will come from blaming others for the ills you see around you.
What you are witnessing is The Great Shift that was foretold long, long ago. It is here now and you have a part to play in it. Whenever you link with any form of the Divine you love, you are able to hold steady, even while everything about you is collapsing. At this point in time it is impossible to find stability in the outer world, so don’t waste your time looking for it.
Do not respond to this world-wide upheaval by falling into despair and hiding yourself away, but instead gather with those who, like you, are also seeking the highest good.
You are supposed to be here on earth. You took birth at this time in history because you wanted to be part of this great change. So quiet your heart now as you turn within to the presence that has never left you and never will.
I do believe we were born for this time. And I am grateful for the ancestor wisdom to guide us…especially the wisdom of the Tuatha Dé. We have felt their awakening. We have felt their emergence from the sídhe mounds. It is time.
