And so begins my year and a day of DAILY blogging. Being consistent is one of my biggest challenges in life! So I’ve committed to writing something in this blog every day for the following 366 days. I suppose it will be quite a journey. Tonight is Halloween Eve! I set myself up for a little Tarot gig in my own community. I sent out flyers…. well, honestly, I walked my feet off putting a flyer on every door in my apartment complex. The flyer set the time, date and location of the event and asked people to call for appointments. There are 200 apartments. I got zero phone calls…… ZERO. I think I’m going to be sitting here doing nothing. Obviously, I didn’t promote this properly. But, I’ll figure it out…. eventually. Even if I get no readings tonight… don’t feel too sorry for me. I’m in Arizona, sitting by a beautiful turquoise pool on a crystal clear night. It’s about 70 degrees. It’s not so bad!
Further, I’m thinking about my Samhain ritual for tomorrow night. Last year at this time, I was preparing for a ritual for about 50 people. There were so many things to think about. I had to worry about food, about the weather, about the guests and the inclusiveness of the ritual. I also had agreed to be possessed. Yes, possessed. I was about to undergo a ritual where the Norns, the Nordic spinners of fate, would be called into me in order to give messages to those gathered. It was an auspicious occasion! And it was a time of chaos and wonderment! And it was meant to be.
Tonight, I prepare a Samhain ritual just for me. This is what is meant to be at this time in my evolution.
Samhain! The wheel has turned again. Another cycle comes to a close. It’s time to look back on the year past, and assess the progress, the victories and defeats. It’s time to look to the coming year and hope and dream and set goals and plan for what we truly desire. And it is time to look inward and work on our understanding of our deepest selves.
I am planning a lot of honoring of the ancestors, known and unknown. I was adopted. So there are ancestors, whom I do not know, who share my DNA and who deserve homage and attention, and I believe I can contact them. But there are also members of my soul family who’ve past on. And I will honor them and say their names and give them respect and gratitude for the things they’ve done for me. I honor Connie, and Faye, Dominick, Mike, Alfred, Angela, Suzanne and many others. I will attempt, tomorrow night, to commune with any of those who wish to contact me. Related by blood or by love. Our ancestors and loved ones who’ve passed have messages and information for us. I do hope you’ll try to reach those who are important to you at this time, while the veil is thin.
I wish you all a very blessed Samhain!
