So many things to celebrate! Costume wearing is not only tolerated, but expected (I would wear one every day if only it were socially acceptable where I live). Eating only candy all day is encouraged. There is a suspension of disbelief between fantasy and reality. We can honor our relatives and ancestors who have passed on, since the veil is the thinnest between the world of the living and the dead.
What’s not to love!
Since of course I love the roots and symbolism of Halloween, I was delighted to discover this bit of Celtic wisdom about Halloween on Avia Venefica’s blog.
This story of the “Seven Swans of Virtue” ties Halloween to our Divine origins. It reminds us that Halloween is a day of cosmic balance. The channels which connect the physical and spiritual are widest, allowing humans to retrieve their Truth and reestablish their balance between physical and spiritual on this day.
Take your opportunity today to remember your Divine origins and rebalance yourself!
