Ancestors Day of the Dead Death Halloween Healing & Wellness Magic Ritual Samhain Spirituality Tarot Wheel of the Year

Halloween, Day of the Dead and the Death card

We are well into the dark Season now, today being Halloween and Samhain - feeling like the quintessential fall day: gusty winds blowing leaves off trees, air chilling to the bone (with a side of rain which we can do without, I think!). It's a most perfect time to cozy up, surround yourself with candles, sip piping hot tea, put together tasty sweets for trick-or-treaters.

On a molecular level, these moving particles create specific energy patterns which make up both living and inanimate objects in the natural world, as well as our very own human body and is what uniquely distinguishes one species of plant or animal, or one person from another. Adding another layer to this concept is the idea that thoughts and feelings also carry an energetic charge in the body, able to influence one's energy system or "aura" as well as the surrounding environment.
