All Hallow’s Eve is upon us and the Hounds are nipping at my heels….

A Witch's Sacred Journey

The Hounds nip at my heelsas I move through the darkveil of Samhain Night.

I breathe deeply feeling thepain of sharp teeth and hotbreath as grateful reprievecomes as winged feet take flightSoaring and carrying me upward.

Time pulls at my back drawing medown into a descent of shadow and lightI breathe deeply and feel the strain offorward momentum gaining speedand clarity shatters the fetters of illusion.

Thoughts gather and commune in
my mind each measured by scale of
will and intent as the breath of death
and decay swirls around me .

The Hounds nip at my heels
still running at fevered pace
my breath coming in shortened
gasps and heart that beats
like syncopated drumming.

The Hounds nip at my heels
coming closer still until
I offer up my dues and surrender
to the renewal of rebirth

Divination is the staple for today’s 30-Days of Samhain post…..

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Opening to Divination

Circle round thriceAs the witch’s pouchIs held tight.

The cauldron is filledWith water and moonlight.

Gaze up towards Lady MoonAnd call forth your desire.

The herbs in the bag of artThrow now into the heatOf the blazing fire.

Gaze into thatWhich holds the keyReflecting back theTreasure of answer to me.

Herb and waterIron and flameThe truth revealedThe heart’s desire thusly named.

No Samhain celebration would be complete without some curiosity and action taken to peer into what “may be”. To that end, divination is the space of opening to being receptive enough to ask the query and receive the answer. Today’s post sets the stage for that work…

When we hear the word “Divination” it usually conjures up a picture of the gypsy fortune-teller who will predict your future love interest, dream job or soon…

Day Sixteen of the Annual 30-Days of Samhain posts. Time to catch up…

A Witch's Sacred Journey

The Ancestor’s Cauldron
A Pathworking of Communion

I would like to invite you to join me on a journey of seeking wisdom from the ancestors. The pathworking may be used anytime to deepen your connection, but it is particularly useful as a tool at Samhain and during the time between that flows into the Winter Solstice.

You will want to find a comfortable space where you will not be disturbed for approx. 20-30 minutes. I would suggest that you have a small object that belonged to or represents your beloved ancestor to hold while experiencing the pathworking. This will set up the intention of reaching out. You may also light a candle if you wish.

When you are ready, you may either read through the transcript below or click on the link to access an audio recording. Blessings on your journey…

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Preparing for the Journey of the Shadow

Today’s post is a reminder that the work of Samhain is not only about connecting with the Ancestors, but also one of entering into the darker spaces we hold within. This is the work of the Shadow and the way in which this work is achieved varies from tradition to tradition, psychoanalytical practice, beliefs and philosophies and everything that makes us human and spiritual in nature. When we become aware of this aspect of ourself, we are claiming the mantle of walking in both light and dark and recognizing the polarized state of Being that we are. I’ve posted below Part One of a three-part article exploring the shadow I wrote several years ago. We’ll revisit this work later in the month…. Enjoy!
