It’s Halloween night folks. And all that comes to mind is the traditions and the spooky scares that go with it. It is a magical time of the year as the clock changes and the darkness descends earlier on us, I love the coziness of it all. It is a time for doing less and slowing down a bit, we can hibernate to a degree, and emerge from the winter renewed. This renewal ideally includes body, mind, and soul; the trinity of self and self-realization. We need to slow down in order to speed up, we need to give ourselves precious time to recharge, and to regenerate a bit. It is also a time for inner inspection. But, essentially Halloween is an ancient Celtic festival honoring where the physical and the non-physical worlds meet, it is essentially about death and held annually on the eve of the end of October and the beginning of November. The Christian church hijacked the pagan festival and tried to totally turn it into all saints and all souls Christian commemoration, but, the pagan traditions survived in Ireland and the Irish emigrants brought their traditions to America and the rest is history. The veil between the physical realm and the non-physical realm is very thin, and the ancients knew this. They knew that their loved ones were not far away and that spirits exist. The only thing is that we cannot usually see spirit (unless that you are highly spiritually evolved), but, just because something is invisible does not mean that it does not exist. Oxegyn exists; we breathe it in and yet we cannot see it. Spirits are the same, they are all around us, we cannot see them, yet, they exist. And they exist to help us, to support us, on this our life journey. It is part of their ‘work’ or their job when they pass into the non-physical realm or heaven if you prefer to call it that. They might be with us for all our lives or just a part, to help us through certain periods, circumstances differ, but, the cause is normally to be of help. Their presence is a gift from God, to have their help, and to have that extra support during our lifetime. We should always ask our deceased loved ones for help, and those who were highly evolved in life such as saints and sages. I regularly call on my deceased Mam, brother, saints, and sages such as Gandhi for help in life, and I find that they do not let me down. Life can be taxing at times, and we all need that extra bit of help from time to time, I call on my ‘helpers’ daily and I thank the Universe for that help and for their presence, it is part of the magic of life, and it is just another of life’s blessings. So I wish you all a Happy Halloween, and do not be shy to ask the dead for help.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.|
