About the Event
Samhain (sow win) is a pagan religious festival originating from an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition and is usually celebrated from October 31 to November 1 to welcome in the harvest and usher in “the dark half of the year.”
Ancient Celts marked Samhain as the most significant of the four quarterly fire festivals, taking place at the midpoint between the fall equinox and the winter solstice. This midway point is where the veil between worlds is most thin which makes contact with our loved ones in spirit easier. This is why this fire festival is focused on honoring our ancestors and loved one in spirit, and honoring our own mortality. Knowing that one day we, too, will join them in spirit.
ACTIVITY FOR CEREMONY
-You will need a paper bag, a tea candle, sand or clean cat litter, a pen-
*We will do the activity together at the beginning. I want for you to know the purpose of the activity so if you would rather do something slightly different, you know what intention to put behind it*
We will honor those who have crossed over by writing their names on the paper bag, filling the bottom inch of the bag with sand or cat litter. Placing the tea candle in the middle of the sand and lighting it. PLACE OUTSIDE.
The light represents the beacon of light from heaven guiding the lost souls home to Source.
The names of our loved ones will receive our special prayers of love, forgiveness, and closure.
Forgiveness does not mean forget, it means that you LET GO of the burden of the shared story. You choose to no longer carry that weight upon your shoulders.
Whatever brings you to the ceremony this night, know that your ancestors and loved ones, along with angel and guide team are ready to meet you where you are at and assist you in releasing what you need so that you may walk forward in life more self assured about who you are and what your path is.
