I love today. I know it has become commercialised, and more about silly costumes and getting sweets, but for me, Samhain is about being able to more easily speak with those who have crossed over.
It is said that the veils between the worlds/dimensions is thinnest at this time of year, and traditionally, people would have put a lit candle in their window to guide spirits. I believe that the ones we love are with us always, but that honouring them on this day is a great way to celebrate Samhain, and it’s better for your teeth too!
So perhaps tonight, in between answering the door to trick or treaters, you might light a candle, and have a chat with the spirits of the people you love. Or maybe even write them a letter. I’m sure they would love to hear your voice call their name.
Be sure to ask the angels to protect you and keep out any lower energies and spirits while you reach out to your loved ones. And be careful and safe with lit candles, don’t leave them unattended.
If you enjoy novels about spirits, you might quite enjoy I’m Here.
