The Power of Gaia

Watching Hurricane Matthew as it storms through the Caribbean toward the U.S., I am reminded of our ancestors having to face Gaia’s fury without all the technology that we have. There was no radar, no storm planes to fly in the eye of the storm, no warning of what was coming. There were no interstates, nor automobiles, nor mass evacuations ahead of tragedy. There certainly were no communications systems that allowed them to watch the peril of their loved ones. We live in very different times. Yet, we are still awed by the immense power of the Goddess.

My heart goes out to Haiti and the more than 100 spirits who went home during the storm. Haiti has not yet recovered from the earthquake that devastated the island just a few years ago. And now, they have to start over again. I am filled with admiration for the Haitians resilience.

My heart goes out to the other spirits who went home from the other islands, too. I cannot imagine being on an island in a Category 4 storm. The island that I grew up on was close enough to mainland New Jersey that evacuation was relatively easy. Being alone in the Caribbean is an entirely different matter. My thoughts are with all those who suffer because of this storm.

Let us keep our fingers crossed for the population on the east coast of the U.S. This storm is slow moving and strong.
Over a million people have evacuated. It would be nice if everyone is out of harm’s way, but I have a bad feeling about this.

Every one in a while, Gaia rises up and demonstrates Her power.

Today is one of those days.
