Happy New Year to all of you who celebrate the Celtic New Year at this season. The harvests have been collected, the air usually gets a bit crisper, the nights are getting longer, and Halloween is just around the corner.
Samhain is a wonderful time of year to go a haunting. The veil gets thinner as the end of the month approaches. You can feel the energy change and get more charged with higher vibrations. The spirit world in all its manifestations lies close and communication happens faster.
Maybe those feelings you get of being watched are true — because you are! How about that something you notice out the corner of your eye? Perhaps it isn’t a “floater”. Are you getting more feelings of deja vu? Do your animals act weird and stare at something you can’t see? Do they bark or meow for no apparent reason? Run out of a room they are usually comfortable in? Do you feel like you may have some sort of message coming that you can’t quite figure out? This could be a good time to look more closely into the things that just seem like a coincidence. There’s no such thing as a coincidence. But, synchronicity is real.
History has it that people dressed up at this time of the year…when they paid tribute to those that had gone on before and paved the way. The day celebrated the dead, but those who ventured out of their houses didn’t want to be recognized, for fear those dearly departed would follow them home, come in, and stay for a while. So — people wore masks to keep their identities secret.
The tradition to dress up on Halloween has stayed with us…..even though we know if anyone wants to haunt a house a mask won’t stop them. Enjoy the day — and night — and set an extra place setting at the dinner table. You never know who may come to visit.
