Halloween or Samhain falls on October 31st and is when the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead is believed to be the thinnest. Halloween is all about celebrating the cycle of death and rebirth. In the northern hemisphere, the leaves are dying and nature is preparing for the still of winter. Just the same in the southern hemisphere, the dormant buds are preparing to rebirth themselves and open to the start of summer. Death and rebirth is an important cycle that is seen in nature constantly, and it’s also something that is mirrored within us We are always going through our own process of shedding, releasing and rebirthing ourselves as we travel along the journey of life. Halloween is a time to honor the “deaths” that we have all experienced throughout the year It is a time to make peace with all the things we have needed to let go of and to celebrate the cycle of the new.
Halloween is not a night to be feared however It is a time to give just a little extra thought to the fact that we are spiritual beings that never die Instead, we live on in different forms and in different ways. We continually recreate ourselves through the cycles of life Whatever “deaths” you have experienced this year whether it be death of ideas, loved ones, attitudes, relationships, dreams and so on, Halloween is the perfect time to honor the shift and to honor the new energy that will now be welcomed into your life. Halloween is also a great time to celebrate and remember loved ones who have crossed over You can do this by lighting a candle, leaving out their favorite food or simply saying a prayer or blessing. October 31st-November 1st is also a powerful time for strengthening your intuition and connection to the Divine, eternal flame within.
