Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. Desmond Tutu
In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present. Francis Bacon
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars. Og Mandino
It is always darkest before the dawn. – This old proverb is said to have been formed by Thomas Fuller in his 1650 AD Pisgah- Sight of Palestine and the confines thereof. Then Simon Lover attributed it to the Irish in “Songs and Ballads” -it is always the darkest right before the day. So for centuries, decades, we have heard this in our darkest, most troubled hours, to try to comfort, support, hurting souls. Yet after a time, when the waves just keep beating us down, these old sayings, talk, nothing comes to help the heart, the spirit. The time comes when we’ve done all we can do, talked all we can talk, worried all we can worry, then we just let the darkness engulf us. Because only in the dark, can we see the stars, hear the small inner voices, allow the Great Spirit to take over. Only in our having the empty heart, the open wounded soul can the positive light enter in. Allowing everything we can do to fix this to be released, the universe looms wide, open to fill the empty spaces, flooding our hearts, our souls with power, with hope. We battle the dark because we are afraid. Yet in the dark, the light seeks us out, finds out, instead of us constantly seeking the light. On to our dreams.
Animal totems: Aardwolf: other names “earth wolf”, “civet hynea”, “maanhaar jackal”, Aardwolf is a nocturnal animal. His totem loves the dark, the night as he sees the good in the night. His totem is one of finding the blessings of the dark. His medicine is the one of learning to embrace the dark, seeing the positive in the quietness of the alone times.
Lady Moon is Waning Crescent with the illumination of 7%. She is still lingering in Gemini the Twins. The 4th house of self-esteem, values is in Gemini. Black is a color that repels negativity, protects from the fears of the darkness. Use black in rituals of protection, of healing negativity.
