Today is calendar Samhain. Celebrated for thousands of years as a major festival, to me Samhain is the (pagan) New Year, a time when the veil between the worlds is thin, a time for extra special communion with the departed, a time for honouring the turn of the wheel, a time of taking stock of and giving thanks for all that has passed since Imbolc, a time for focusing on the heart’s desire for up to Beltane 2020, and a time for celebration!
Sending you Samhain Blessings! May the fires in your hearts and hearths burn bright! 🔥🔥🔥
How will you honour and celebrate Samhain and your ancestors?
I honour and celebrate by:
🧙🏻♀️ Making sure my environment is clean, tidy and welcoming for the Samhain energies and the ancestors
🧙🏻♀️Cleaning the hearth and/or altar and set it up for Samhain
🧙🏻♀️Taking a walk in nature and collect what I need to make my Samhain wreath, into which I weave my wishes for the coming 6 moons
🧙🏻♀️Performing a ritual to honour and connect with the turning of the wheel
🧙🏻♀️Remembering the ancestors by leaving offerings I know they like on the altar, such as a glass of wine, some chocolate
🧙🏻♀️Lighting a candle for each departed human and animal I wish to honour, connecting with each as I light the candle
🧙🏻♀️Meditation, singing, dancing, laughing, crying!
