THE REALM OF SPIRIT




The Veil Between the Worlds

The leaves begin to turn colors; beautiful oranges, reds and yellows against some still-green foliage. The air becomes crisp and clear with the far-away scent of burning wood as the sky turns dark overhead. Autumn, in all of its burning glory, is upon us. It is the time of the harvest and the beginning of long, dark nights where we only have ourselves as company. Or do we?

Autumn ushers in a time of introspection and reflection on our lives. No longer are we distracted by the summer with its outdoor activities and bright sun. This is the time of the dark mysteries. The time of staring into the light of warm fires and watching the shapes of the flames as they dance on the wall.

This is the time of the thinning of the "Veil Between the Worlds."

In our world we celebrate Halloween as a childrens holiday. We bring out the dead or creatures from a different world in the form of witches, zombies, vampires, ghosts and werewolves. We dress up in costumes and bob for apples and give out candy-all the while making sure that we are having fun and not going too much into that "other world".

This is our only holiday with pagan roots that still remains a purely secular holiday. Oh, Christmas and Easter have pagan roots but The Church took them over long ago. Halloween is different. They tried to take it over too by declaring All Saints Day but somehow it never really took hold like the others.

Could it be that in the deep recesses of our minds, we didn't want to let go of the real meaning of Halloween? Could it be that we love the idea of being able to contact a world beyond our own? To know that our loved ones who have crossed over are really "somewhere" and are in fact, still with us? That we love the idea of being in contact with something "supernatural"?

We know that we love being scared-just look at the popularity of horror movies. We also really love Halloween-it is the second biggest grossing holiday for retailers next to Christmas!

But what is Halloween really? Where did it come from and why do we love it so much?

The term "Halloween" comes from the church's attempts at commandeering this pagan holiday into their dogma so that they could make converts feel "at home." It declared November 1 "All Saints" Day" or "All Hallows' Day" and so October 31 became "All Hallows' Eve". "Een" is a old derivative of "evening" or "eve" and so, "All Hallows' Eve (or evening) became "Hallows Evening or Hallows Eve"-"Halloween".

Because Halloween is such a purely pagan holiday, many Christians do not celebrate it at all or celebrate it in a "Christian" way. This usually means that they do not acknowledge the "other world" or dress up as ghosts, vampires, monsters or witches (especially witches). There are no gypsy fortune-tellers among their children either. They believe that this part of Halloween is "evil". Their haunted houses do not contain zombies or Dracula but drug dens and pregnant teenagers and cautions about "this" happening to you if you stray from God.

But, can you really separate that other world from Halloween? Can you take out the "supernatural" from Halloween and still have Halloween?

Halloween was originally a festival celebrating the dead and the world of the supernatural. The Celts used the term (and many pagans still do) "Samhain" which is pronounced "sow-wen". It was a time of reverence for and contact with the dead. It was also a time to reap what they had sown in the year prior and to prepare for the "dark night of winter." It is the New Year for many pagans, especially witches (or Wiccans).

Samhain was and is a time for reflection on the previous year and what you have done with your life. It is a time of great magick and mystery and reverence for the supernatural and the "other side." It is considered the time when the "veil between the worlds" is at its thinnest and the dead can walk among us.

In older times, extra places were set at the dinner table or food and drink were set outside on the doorstep for the returning spirits to refresh themselves and honor the home with their presence.

The veil being thin also allowed the living to have increased intuition and psychic abilities. It was a night for scrying and looking into the future. Many people still perform divination rituals on Samhain for knowledge of the coming year-crystal balls and fires are gazed into, tarot cards are spread and runes are cast and interpreted. It is truly a night for magick and contact with the other side.

I think that Halloween is loved so much by us, not just because it's a really fun holiday, but because it speaks to something inside of us that we have lost touch with. It speaks to that part of us that desires a re-connection with Spirit; a communion with that which seems hidden from us. We are searching for the mystery of spiritual connection that we have lost.

We want contact with our loved ones. We want to be assured that they are in a good place and by that assurance, that we will go there too when we cross over. We want contact with God; with our Divine help. We want to know that we are not alone.

Why did a series of stories about a young boy and his friends and their education as wizards go on to become the best selling series of books of all time?

Why are we so fascinated now with vampires and ghosts and werewolves (the "Twilight" books and "True Blood" and the books it was based on)?

Why? Because we are searching for magick, for miracles-for that connection with the Divine. We know deep down that it is not "supernatural." It is the most natural thing there is and we are yearning to bring that part of our spirit back to us. We have lost it in the "age of reason" that says that it is our imagination or in the Church telling us that it is "evil." It is neither un-reasonable or evil to reclaim our spiritual self-which is our psychic self. It is what we must do in order to be whole.

It is true that the veil between the worlds is thin at Halloween but communion with the other side is not as difficult as you think. It is just getting past the blocks that you have to doing it and re-awakening and re-membering the natural ability you have to connect.

For two days, on October 10 & 11, I am holding a workshop to help you connect. It is called Awakening the Spiritual Self-Part I, Communion. We will explore our awakening and you will learn how to connect with your Divine helpers on the other side. We will discuss chakras and our meta-senses. We will contact our guides and angels and learn to re-open our connection to Spirit. We will channel messages for ourselves and others.

This is a perfect time as the veil is thinning right now but it doesn't need to be thin in order for you to connect. Once you re-awaken your natural ability-the ability you had as a child-you will be connected all the time.

This is a re-awakening; a re-membrance. When you re-member something you are putting a part that was lost back together with the rest to form the whole.

How many of you had childhood "imaginary" friends? How many of your children or grand-children do? Look closely at them when they are speaking to or playing with their "friend." You will find, if you allow it, that you will be able to feel the energy of that being.

Children do see and hear other beings. It is natural to them; they have only recently come from the other side themselves. They only lose that ability when "well-meaning" adults tell them that it cannot be so. It is so-it is for them, it was for you and it will be again.

Let me be your guide on the journey to re-awakening. Find that part of you that you have lost; the part that yearns for contact with Spirit. Once you find it, you will never be lost again.

JEWELRY-ANGEL WISHES ARE IN AT BLUE EAGLE!

Great Holiday gifts!

I have finished my new line of jewelry (bracelets and earrings) called Angel Wishes. They are made from genuine gemstones and crystal and are empowered with their purpose as I make them. For example, The Sandalphon bracelet is made from turquoise and turquoise crystals and pearls and is empowered with courage and with lifting your prayers to heaven. Raphael is made with malachite and green crystal and pearls and empowered with his beautiful green healing aura. Michael's beautiful blue aura of Divine peace and love is represented with sodalite and indigo blue crystals and pearls. There are 10 different angel designs-all Archangels except for Hope (cancer)-Rose Quartz, Believe (HIV/Aids)-Red Jasper and Guardian Angel which uses Angelite and blue crystals. I hope to have them on the website soon but they are being carried at Blue Eagle! Stop by and see them! They have wonderful energy and each bracelet or pair of earrings comes with its own card explaining the purpose, the stones used and a "wish" that you can use as a daily affirmation.

THE VIOLET WAVE OF ASCENSION

I have received the Violet Wave Meditation from Archangel Raziel. It is my charge and my delight to present this to you know. It has been written in a form that you can record yourself in your own voice. I am also hoping to have an mp3 recording soon which can be downloaded from our site.

This meditation is very important as I have been informed that only those who have been prepared physically by raising their vibration will be able to Ascend during the Shift. This does not mean that we will die but our bodies will be transformed vibrationally. The Violet Wave must be received and assimilated so that we will be able to receive the White Wave which is the new Christ Consciousness.

Go to the Violet Wave of Ascension.

COMING IN THE FUTURE Part II-STRENGTHENING THE CONNECTION

We will continue channeling but also in this class you will learn to further develop your psychic gifts using telepathy, psychometry, divination tools and more! This is a one-day class-date will be announced shortly.

These classes are the next ones in our "Awakening to Whole-Being" series. This is a series of classes and workshops that we have been led to present by our loving guides and angels. My guide Malachi has given me much of the information along with Archangel Raziel and others. "Awakening to Whole-Being" is the message from Malachi to us as we prepare for The Awakening.

Coming later in the series, AWAKENING THE PROSPEROUS SELF-Breaking the Bubble.
