The Spirit of Samhain

Have you recently had an increased awareness in the spirit world? As we sit on the threshold of the holy day of Samhain ‘Summers end’ the veil between words it at its thinnest; Making this a primal time to communicate with ancestors and loved ones that have crossed the Antahkarana (Sanskrit term for Rainbow Bridge).

I awoke this morning at 4.44 am. Although 444 is my all-time favourite angel number, I was bemused by the fact I was awake so early. As I lay in the darkness, I felt a familiar presence followed by a gentle feather-like stroke caress the side of my cheek.  Instinctively, I expanded my aura in defence, quickly applying a layer of Christ light to ensure that I was protected, just in case. I then went on to explore, who this being was. The loving visitor was indeed my Nan, Jenny. She gave me a personal message, a piece of  ‘advice’ which after sharing with my husband his reply was ‘That is a typical thing for her to say’. I rolled over to the edge of the bed, ready to climb out when I felt something cold press against my skin. It was a 5p piece. How on earth did that get there I puzzled? Then it dawned on me, it was a confirmation from my Nan. Back in 1990, when the new 5p piece came into circulation my Nan began to collect them in a large jam jar. Once the jar was full, she would give it to me. Every few months I would excitedly be cashing in my loot, it felt like a lot of money to a little girl of 8 years old!

Have you felt the presence of Spirit?

I wondered, how many people were, like me, experiencing extra visits at this renowned time of Samhain.

Have you had any recent dreams of a loved one in Spirit? Have you come across their personal calling cards – an item that they loved, their favourite song, or like me, physically felt or seen someone across the planes of existence? Even the act of reading this blog could indeed indicate that a loved one in Heaven is, in fact, sending you their love along with a little message of ‘Hello’.

If you find yourself saying ‘yes’ to the following you may next be wondering, what you can do to reach back out yourself. The night of Samhain (31st Oct) or indeed, All Souls day (1st Nov) grant you the perfect window opening of an opportunity to honour and even communicate with your physically deceased loved ones. The veil between worlds that famously parts way on this potent night doesn’t reside in our physical world. Contrary to what we have been taught – that the souls of the dead don’t walk the Earth upon this night, it is indeed through a portal WITHIN us that we receive the invitation to merge worlds, should we wish?

It is with the inner eye, the gate of the Third Eye chakra that momentarily parts, allowing previously unseen domains into our vision, enabling stronger communication skills with heightened receptivity.

Angels of Samhain

Holy Amethyst

The Archangels that I will be working with this Samhain are Archeia Holy Amethyst – the female Archangel of Clairvoyance who can awaken and cleanse the lens of your Third Eye chakra gate.

And Archangel Azrael – the angel who guides you as your soul exits the body upon your physical death. He can successfully carry messages of love and wisdom from your ancestors should you be wary or afraid of tuning into them directly. He will create a vessel, a container to keep you safe, only allowing wanted souls into your space.

Samhain Ritual Offering

The ancient festival of Samhain (pronounced sow wen) marks the descent into the darker days of the year. Darkness is represented by the sacred feminine. It is a time to withdraw into ourselves, to rest and recover, to tap into our innate wisdom until we are ready to be rebirthed once the light returns.

Mark this turn of the season by realising what within you is ready to die? What is no longer serving your greatest good? Once you have journaled out the answers, ask your ancestors on the night of Samhain to help you shed your skin.

Try this exercise:

You will need:

A food offering for your loved ones in Spirit – perhaps their favourite cake, or drink.

A dried bundle of sacred herbs for burning (local from your area), such as Lavender, Sage, Rosemary.

A black candle.

Pen and Paper.

Set some time aside to get clear on what you wish to release at this time. Flesh it out onto paper.

Place your offering down in front of you along with your ritual items.

Light your herbs (be fire safe) and pass the smoke through your aura and over your items to bless them.

Invoke Archangel Azrael (or your chosen protector) to create a container of light around you.

Light the candle saying ‘I light this candle in the name of Archangel Azrael and …(state the names of your loved ones in Spirit) thank you for shining a beacon of light to guide and illuminate my thinking as I dispell my darkness’.

Taking the paper, begin to rip it up, with each tear state out loud when you are releasing ‘I release…’

Once again, light your bundle of cleansing herbs and allow the smoke to pass over you and your items.

Take your shredded paper and your offerings outdoors.

Place them on the ground, intending that Mother Earth transmutes the contents of your paper.

Place your food on the ground (not in wrappers) and say thank you to your ancestors. 

Back inside, relight your candle (don’t leave unattended) and gaze into flame focusing your awareness on your brow.

Trust any images of guidance that comes to mind.

Close down your Third Eye by imaging it as a purple rose gently closing its petals.

Enjoy, Love Claire.

Clear the Past Full Moon in Aries Ritual

Moon Ritual

Clear your Past Aries Full Moon Ritual

CLAIRE STONE

Clear your Past Aries Full Moon Ritual.

The full moon is always an opportunity to reflect and readdress the balance in our lives. At this powerful time of the month, the Sun and Moon are directly opposite each other. This can wreak havoc on your perspectives, leaving you feeling indecisive or even a little away with the fairies. Regardless, this is time to release into the cosmos either:

 

A. What are you ready to shed

or

b. What are you hoping to draw close

I think of the full moon similar to ovulation – a seed can be planted or an unfruitful  idea / circumstance can be shed. 

Make a wish

Aries is a fire sign and so this makes this months full moon all the more a potent time to clear and burn away negativity. Combine the powerful punch of the moon with the cleansing fire of Aries.

 
 

Our October full moon is called ‘The Hunters Moon’ or ‘blood Moon’ by some, as blood would be shed across the land as meat was hunted for the winter. This is a powerful reminder to respect and give thanks to those who have made sacrifices for us in the past. Just think of all the lovely people who we have never met that work tirelessly to make our lives more comfortable.

We are also being given a nudge now to ponder what ‘sacrifices’ are you reluctant to make due to lack of commitment to your higher vision?

Tune in to the energies around you, work with them and you can glide through life making as much spiritual progress as possible. No one escapes lifes challenges, but like my Nan used to say ‘A stitch in time saves 9’.

Have a blessed month, until next time. Moon Beams, Claire x

Hunter Moon Fire Ritual to clear the Past

 

The sacred night of the Hunters Moon is 13th Oct 22.10pm UK time (for other countries click here)

You will need:

A red candle

6 of Cups Tarot Card (optional, if you have a deck)

Something that resembles what you intend to clear eg – Photo of an ex, A written scenario, or an object that links to to a person, place or idea.

10 Mustard Seeds

A safe place to burn your items – fireplace, firepit etc.  

Sage / Palo Santo

 

How

Take time to reflect upon what you intend to clear, make notes. Allow yourself the space to purge healing tears if this is emotional for you.

Before the ritual, thoroughly clear your energy by clearing your aura and magical items with the sage smoke.

Place your items down on the ground in front of the fire. 

Gaze into the fire, allowing your consciousness to drift into a deeper state of awareness.

Light the red candle and say:

 

‘Hunters moon, Aries plight, bless me on this holy night, engulf me with the flames of transformation bring to me my affirmation. I give thanks for all that has been revealed, this is my time, I am healed’

Hold the item that represents your wounded past in your right hand and toss it into the fire.

Take in three deep cleansing breaths, visualising each in-breath as a holy fire cleansing you. Your outbreath resembling a black smoke – toxic energy leaving you forever.

Take the mustard seeds in your dominant hand – press them into the candle wax one by one.

If you have the 6 of Cups Tarot card trace an anti -clockwise infinity symbol over it to reverse patterns of the past.

Clear your card and your aura with the sage smoke. 

Give thanks.

Let the candle burn out in a safe place.
