Halloween is derived from “All Hallows Eve”, which also means Holy Evening. Centuries ago it was called Samhain (pronounced Saa-ween), which marks the spiritual New Year. Halloween (10/31) and All Saints Day (11/1) is when the veil between the spirit world and physical world are the thinnest. Premonitions, psychic phenomena, and intuitions run higher during this time since the veil is so thin it’s easily permeable and accessible. No goblins or ghosts are going to try and nab anyone despite what popular entertainment portrays in scary movies. It can however invite in spirits that have still retained some measure of their human ego.

This is the true harvest coming to a completion where abundance is ripe for the picking. It’s a transitional period where you accept any misgivings or mistakes you feel you made and release them in order to be reborn anew. Leave the old behind and enter the New Year in the right spirit. Use this weekend to focus and paint the visuals in your mind of what you desire.

Some rituals others partake in result in bonfires or the burning of straws. Each straw represents something you wish to burn away from your life. You ask your Spirit team and departed loved ones around you to bless the straws beforehand in a prayer. When the ritual is complete, aim to transform and heal your soul in order to experience a rebirth with a clean slate and a fresh open mind.

From a fun perspective, this is a popular holiday filled with tricks and treats. Dressing up in costume, visiting haunted locations, watching scary movies, decorating your home with Halloween and Autumn décor and visiting haunted mazes at theme parks are all part of the entertainment the masses partake in.

There is nothing wrong with participating in Halloween festivities. Enjoy yourself and have a good time pending it’s not hurting anyone. Let loose and unleash your inner child by breaking away from the monotony of daily life. Choosing to dress up in a costume awakens your creative artistic side. Some enjoy the adrenaline rush of a scary movie. It doesn’t mean they’re going to enact that harm on someone. For the male gene specifically, it’s a temporary escape that tests their strength and to be able to say they got through something tough.  Doctors have described the season as a way to release pent up anxieties and emotions. Those who engage in the holiday understand that it’s all make believe and part of the fun.
