Samhain Blessings

artist not known, please inform

For many this day is known as Halloween, yet throughout time prior to patriarchy, it has always been the Holy Day half-way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice that begins a week known as the start of the New Year and is celebrated as Samhain (my preferred pronunciation is “Sow-in”, as in “cow” and “in” or “een”),

This is a celebration of the kind of darkness that leads to light, and the kind of death that leads to birth in the spiral of creation. The veil is thin and a portal to the liminal realms will remain open during this week through the New Moon in Scorpio on November 7th.

The association of darkness with fear, black with evil, has been manufactured and programed into the human mind. From the view-point of Mother Nature and the dark Goddesses such as Kali, darkness is not about fear, but about clearing way for the renewal of life and light.

You may use this time to listen to your Truth, to nurture your inner-self, and to honor death as part of the cycle of ever-present and on-going life and renewal. Visit the realms of your unknown, your own fears — and bring the light of understanding to your darkness. Travel in this darkness and return fulfilled with life.

Invite the Goddesses of the dark, the Black Madonna (known by many names) into your life and enter into that creative space devoid of fear, and full of renewal.

You are the One, you have the power,
you co-create your reality with Source.
Create the story you want to live…
