Halloween Today

Halloween, today, is one of the oldest spiritual festivals, deserving to be remembered.

Its origins go back to the Celtic festival of Samhain (summer’s end), but there are links also to the festival of the dead known as Parentalia and also Hallowtide when the saints are honoured and the spirits of the dead are prayed for. It is the time when magic is abroad and the ephemeral dimensions mingle with our third dimensional reality.

It has been trivialised over recent years and become more of a spooky celebration for children than anything else, its Celtic roots ignored. Remember, however, that just as leylines are created and strengthened by the march of thousands of pilgrims over centuries, so too the consistent celebration of ancient spiritual festivals embeds their meaning and power into the energies of earth and in the psyche of man. The memory of the true Halloween lives on in all of us, even if our minds have forgotten.

For me, this day is important in my spiritual calendar. I will remember the great men and women who have striven to bring spirituality to earth since it was first seeded; the souls of the departed and in particular the souls of those making their way Home now. I will remember the Beings, once souls themselves, who work so hard to help us through our great transition, and I will remember the souls of those who have helped me personally. I will give thanks for the magic of this great adventure of Life and will honour the Mystery.

These are extraordinary times and this day of Halloween is an extraordinary day, truly deserving of remembrance by all awakened souls.
