October is the month of Shadows. Now is the time for communion with our friends and relatives who have passed on, to embrace survival after death. October 31,Samhain, on this sacred evening the veils between the living and dead are at there thinnest.
Samhain, wise women all around the planet will invoke Spirits, perform spells and incantations with the paring of apples. I suggest what ever ritual you chose to perform, keep the words simple and repetitive.
October is the month featuring the Celtic feast Samhain. A time to look beyond everyday reality. Nothing ever happens by chance. Everything in life is connected like a giant web. Follow your intuition to tread upon the grid.
In many traditions, Samhain marks the spiritual New Year, a time when we want to focus on your connection to the past and the future. To ancient peoples, stones represented the link between ourselves and those who walked on Earth before us.
This is still seen today in the New Year's rituals of South Pacific islanders and in Jewish cemeteries the world over.
Now with magic howlings she keeps the swarms of the grave before her: now she sprinkles them with milk and bids them retreat.
Day 13 of 13 Days of Samhain -
Long held superstitions about stones of all kinds claims that they actually 'grow' out of the earth and possess innate magical powers.
To honor those who came before, gather some interesting stones - and take them to any place that makes you feel connected to your ancestors. Graveyards, a home or a piece of land are all appropriate. Place the stones firmly into the ground, knowing that they will be there always, connecting you to the entirety of your family tree from the oldest root to the newest bud.
Have a Good Night.
Smiles & Sunshine!
