The Fall Equinox offers you a wonderful opportunity to use its energy to examine whether your life is properly balanced. It is a time of the year when the night and day are of equal length, and represents a turning point in the seasons. It is said to be a time when the light and solar energy are the strongest. For the next six months we will be moving through a time of darkness, and of a decline of the earth energies.
In Shamanic practice there is a true understanding of the nature of darkness. Journeys are preformed in which we discover insights, closing our eyes. In Shamanic practice we shut off our outer visual sense, to allow ourselves to “see” the reality that lies within. The darkness has the potential to be rich and allows for introspection and contemplation. It allows us to find the stillness of mind and become open to our intuition and the path of Spirit.
