This is my favorite time of year, when the air grows crisp, the nights cool, and change is palpable. It feels like magic in the air, the trees have been whispering all night, and the moon seems more eerie with rippling clouds passing over.
I get charged up with electricity but at the same time I turn my attentions inwards, wanting to nest more, be home, read, be creative. The irony is, the outer world appears to be a little nervous of this change and two things happen – people turn the time of Samhain into a kid’s holiday (hey, my inner kid loves it too) when its much more potent than that, and our culture also starts to rev up for the holidays. This means lights, noise, people, crowds, parties, and a busy schedule, all just around the corner.
But not yet.
I’m wondering if you are one of the ones who secretly or not so secretly want a little more time to yourself at this turning point, or at least if you are going to be around people, be around quieter ones who are also self-reflecting. Those who might enjoy grounding, meditative healing work that is terribly fun at the same time, and have the support of non-intrusive community. Those who wish to breathe deeply, being one’s authentic self, and sharing from a really deep and meaningful place.
Are you one of those people too? If not, no worries! And enjoy the Halloween parties. If you are one of those people, consider joining us for this next Time Between Worlds playshop, or one of the weekly classes running til mid-December.
No matter how you choose to be this season of change, I’m wishing you many blessings.
May your Halloween time be electric, mystical, delicious, or fun, as you wish!
