Samhain is coming! Are all of you excited? I am. I walked on the nature trail this morning. I heard bird songs, admired the fiery colored leaves and the brilliant blue sky. The early walk charges me with energy for the day. I was shocked at how cold it was so I didn’t walk too far. The walk will wake you up more than coffee, esp with the frost coming.

For those who want to read my blog post here, I have posted it now.

Honoring the Dead

 Samhain is a time to honor those who are still in spirit. During Samhain, practice divination with the dead. The veil between the world of the living and the dead is thin. The dead like to be remembered. They continue to care about you after death. Perform prayers and leave offerings to show your devotion. Offerings could be something they loved in life such as a particular song, favorite aftershave or a rose. It tells them you remember them as they were in life and that they are loved. To honor those who have passed before you, keep a photo of them on your altar or in another special spot.

It’s not wrong to communicate with your dearly departed. It demonstrates a deep respect to honor your loved ones in this way. Seek their help in getting a job, the love of your life or prosperity. Remember to thank them for their assistance. Ask for something worthy of their time. Bear in mind they are at peace. Show you respect them by remembering they are deceased. Don’t ask for something menial like if you are going to win the lottery or when a person will call.

To communicate with them, light a white taper or votive candle and meditate. Talk to them either mentally or out loud. Think about what they loved in life and who they were. Regularly pray to them to maintain a relationship with them. Continue to be respectful and you will never be harmed. If you focus exclusively on those you love, you won’t attract any negative energies or spirits. Concentrate on the highest good as you call on your beloved deceased.

On Samhain eve, light a candle and set it at the window to guide the lost spirits. Be careful where you set the candle to avoid a fire. Watch for any auspicious signs as you continue to honor the dead. Enjoy the magic of the Samhain season.
