CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “October: The Spiritual Power Month Of The Year”

Ascension Avatar note: I’m reluctantly posting this since I feel too many people have an over-dependence on ‘invoking spirits’ to do their work instead of clearing entity attachments and standing strong as a God-sovereign being… but to each his/her own!

Now that we are about to change our calendar from September to October, we might as well know something interesting about the upcoming month.

October is considered to be the most powerful spiritual month of the year. This is the time when we delve deep into our inner self spiritually. We might also feel haunted sometimes during this month.

If we notice deep, we feel the presence of something around us. Nonetheless, the aura is filled up with energy that makes us feel more alive. It is said that in this month, the spirits roam around us in a more prevalent manner than the other eleven months we have.

Our lives depend on the dimensions that we live in. During October, it is believed that the dimension in which we reside meets with the one in which spirits are contained. The thin line of control between these two dimensions are blurred in this month.

Thus we mark this time to honor the dead and deceased. We honor our loved ones who left us timely or untimely. In this commemoration, we just do not have our family members but our pets too.

The period that has been attributed to the blurring of the thin veil between the two worlds spans from around October 8th to November 11th of each year. You can light a candle during this time period, and remember the quality time you spent with your loved ones and their cherished memories as they remain no longer with you in the physical world.

You can arrange a special spot like an altar for them who are no more, put some candles, their pictures, their favorite flowers, and incense stick. Light a candle every day at the altar with the incense stick, and say whatever you want to convey to the deceased ones.

It is believed that they hear you and feel happy that you still remember them. In other cultures too, October is the month of paying homage to the dead ones. For example, in Hinduism, they have “pind-daan“, i.e. the ritual of the donation of food and clothes for their deceased loved ones during this month.

You might feel their presence if you follow these steps in the month of October.

Furthermore, this is the month of the autumn season where we witness the shedding of leaves all around. This shedding can be seen metaphorically and used as a learning lesson for our life, where you decide to shed negative energy and feelings from yourself and prepare a space for the good and positive aspects in our life, as a sign of renewal. Here, the blessings from the spirits can be enormously useful.

Also, Halloween is another aspect of this month. Now that the festival is all about spooky jokes and fun where the people celebrate all types of ghosts or spirits carelessly, we should be aware of the negative spirits we might invite in.

If you have a creepy and horror factor as the theme of your party, it might be possible that you are inviting the same kinds of spirits. Alternatively, if you have cheerful and playful spirits as your theme then you welcome the same kind.

There are few steps you can take to avoid the negativity, if present in the Halloween party such as laying low during the Halloween fever, meditating during the time you are anxious, doing historical themes ghost tours rather than the horror ones, etc.

There are other holidays related to spirits in different countries and cultures where they take enough precautions to assure that nothing goes wrong, and only the positive and light-hearted spirits of their loved ones come forward.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Samhain and Scorpio New Moon Guided Journey Ritual 2016”

Samhain Cleansing Ritual (2).png

Samhain or Halloween is a pagan festival that honours the cycle of death and rebirth. This death and rebirth energy is further amplified this year due to the Scorpio New Moon, which falls one day before Samhain.

Scorpio energy is all about death and rebirth. The death process is about going into the dark spaciousness within and accessing subconscious realms, intuition and spirits. With the knowledge acquired in the “death” process, you can then use it to rebirth yourself into a new, awakened you.

Going into the darkness is often associated with evil, but that is really not true. Going into the darkness represents going into hidden realms to understand more about the things that we can’t perceive with our five senses.

The energy  of death and rebirth will be heightened on October 30th and October 31st, making it the perfect time for this guided journey ritual.

This ritual is going to help you shed the past and open to the opportunities of the future. It is also going to help you connect with the Divine realms and access guidance from Spirit.

Here is what you will need:

  •     Candle
  •     Dried white sage or another smudging/cleansing tool
  •     Paper and pen
  •     Nuts/seeds/apple pieces or some type of edible food from nature (preferably seasonal)
  •     Your favorite crystal
  •     Tarot or divination deck (optional)

Directions:

1. Find a quiet place where you can’t be disturbed. Arrange your tools for the ritual out in front of you. Start burning your sage and smudge your aura, repeating the mantra (or your own version of it)–

 

“I cleanse myself of the past, I cleanse myself of any attachments, I cleanse myself from any fears or blocks that hold me back. I cleanse myself so I am renewed.”

 

2. Once you have cleansed your aura, you can leave the sage burning in a safe place near you. Take 3-4 deep breaths to still and calm your mind. Once you feel settled, take your piece of paper and begin writing down all the things that you would like to release and let go of. Write down all the thoughts, feelings, emotions or attachments that you would like to “kill off”, such as fear, self-limiting beliefs etc.

3. Once you have your list, allow yourself to sit in the emotions that have been brought up for you. When ready, begin tearing the list into long strips of paper. As you rip each piece of paper, take deep breaths in and out.

4. Now hold your crystal, close your eyes and take a journey. If you want you can lie down and place your crystal on your heart chakra or third eye.

Imagine yourself falling deeper and deeper into the black spaciousness of your soul. Allow yourself to keep falling down, down, down. Once you are as deep as you can go, notice if any images or messages come to you. Notice how you are feeling, don’t react just observe.

In your minds eye, visualize a doorway. Open the door and begin walking through. Imagine a world where you are free of all the things that are holding you back. Imagine your life as you walk your highest path. What do you see? How do you feel? Allow your visualisation to take you deeper into the journey.

5. Once you have completed your visualisation, open your eyes. Take another piece of paper and write down any important messages or observations. If you have divination cards, you can also do a reading at this time.

6. Now, light the candle to represent the “rebirth”. Take a bite of the food and allow it to ground and earth you. Allow the food to bring you back down into your body.

7. Close your ritual by giving thanks. Recycle the paper that your ripped in shreds and keep the other piece of paper so you can read it whenever you need to.

 

Samhain and New Moon Blessings to you!

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “The Spiritual Significance of Halloween”

Spiritual Significance of Halloween.jpg

Halloween is all about celebrating the cycle of death and rebirth. The leaves are dying, nature is preparing for the still of winter and the year is reaching its end.

Death and rebirth is an important cycle that is seen in nature constantly, and it’s also something that is mirrored within us.

We are always going through our own process of shedding, releasing and rebirthing ourselves as we travel along the journey of life.

Halloween is a time to honor the deaths that we have all experienced throughout the year. It is a time to make peace with the things that have needed to be let go of and it is a time to celebrate the cycle of the new.

For centuries people have celebrated Halloween and the cycle of death and rebirth. In pagan times, the ritual of Halloween was known as Samhain.

Samhain falls on the auspicious day of 1/11 and on the night before the calendar ticks over into November, spiritual activity is at its highest.

One of the reasons that spiritual activity is so high on this night is due to the vibrations of the date 111. If you look at number 1 as a pillar, you can see that there are two pillars on either side with a pillar in the middle.

That middle pillar represents the veil and “being stuck” or in limbo between the two worlds. The veil between the living and the dead is also said to be thinnest due to the Sun’s position in the deep and intuitive sign of Scorpio.

Samhain is really a celebration of darkness, but not darkness as in evil. It is more about the darkness of the unknown, the subconscious mind and the intuition. It is about the darkness of the unseen worlds and the things that we can’t really make sense of with our rational minds.

In pagan times, important rituals were conducted on Samhain to celebrate death and to understand the darker, hidden realms of life. Through understanding the darkness, the knowledge of light also becomes stronger.

There are many other day’s of the year where the veil between the living and the dead is believed to be thin. These are often days that carry high spiritual significance due to numerology or astrology. Samhain or Halloween is just one of the more common dates in the west.

Because many people also celebrate Halloween, even if it is just through costumes and candy, it can still amplify spirit activity.

Halloween is not a night to be feared however. It is a time to give just a little extra thought into the darker things that lurk within. It is a time to give just a little extra thought to any subconscious  musings or intuitive hunches.

Halloween is also a great time to honor, celebrate and remember loved ones who have crossed over. It is also a powerful time for strengthening your intuition and connection to the Divine.

In 2016, Halloween falls just one day after the potent Scorpio New Moon which is definitely going to be amplifying all of this energy and really allowing us to explore the deeper, darker, hidden realms.
