Wheel of the Year: Samhain holiday in October of the year
Samhain — a holiday that occupies a special position in the Celtic calendar. On this day, the role of the underworld in our lives increases. Many conduct seances to look into the future or say goodbye to the past.
October is literally overflowing with energetically strong days. One of them falls on the Celtic feast of Samhain. The fact is that the ancient Celts, and then the Scandinavians, believed: time is a wheel that turns all year.
One turn of the wheel is the beginning of a new life, and it was updated once in each season. According to beliefs, on the night of October 31 to November 1, an otherworldly force comes to the surface, which can both darken your life and save it from all evil. The main thing is not to enter into dissonance with the energy of the holiday, confusing it with Halloween.
Although these holidays have a common origin, they differ in their energy, conditions and strength.
Wheel of the Year: Samhain Festival
The wheel of the year is the annual cycle of the cycle of life. Successive festivals exist among the followers of Wicca and modern European pagans. The ancient Celts divided the year into four approximately equal quarters, which approximately correspond to the modern seasons.
However, the holidays are divided not by months, but by the Sabbaths, the main events in life, and the Esbats, the lunar phases.
Sabbaths or Sabbash — eight major holidays, symbolizing the cyclical nature of life from its inception to the outcome and transformation. This is the magical time, which ends with the feast of death and the memory of the dead — Samhayn. Translated from the Celtic Samhain — “the end of summer”.
This is the triumph of death preceding the birth and the cycle of life.
On October 31 all borders between worlds are erased, the door to the world of the living opens to the dead: the otherworld seeks to go outside and enslave the human world. The Celts believed that on this night, deities, spirits and messengers of other worlds were coming to earth. People were overtaken by a short-term period of wars, connections, payment or return of karmic debts.
The traditions of the festival of Samhain
Samhain — a holiday of peace, unity and peace. On the night of October 31 to November 1, people came to balance with themselves and the world as a whole. Everyone at this time has a chance to look inward, to see everything that separates you from a happy life. This is a day of power, which gives a powerful spiritual stimulus, emotional impulse and informational keys.
The outlook expands, the knowledge deepens, the outlook changes. Secret information literally lies on the surface. In order to notice them, you should open your heart, hear the inner voice, closely watching the signs and signs of fate.
But practitioners and esoteric sought internal rebirth through magic and ancient rituals. After all, on this day, the line between the world of the dead and the living was obliterated, and it turned out to find answers to all questions thanks to seance, calling spirits and helpers. Even a person who does not possess extrasensory abilities, being alone, can keenly feel the presence of the spirit and even see it. Therefore, if you do not want to affect the subtle vibrations of the other world, do not light candles, do not sit long near the mirror and do not walk at night.
Another thing, if you are interested in this area and you want to contact the deceased.
How to conduct a seance
The seance does not take place alone — it always takes several people, from three to six. To achieve the desired effect, a person with a strong energy potential must be present in the group who will charge all those present. The sacrament of which we speak should be carried out in the interval between 12 at night and 4 in the morning.
The holiday Samhain is considered a powerful time, it will be your privilege, enhancing the activity of the spirit.
In a darkened room, the light should come only from lit candles. Aroma oils and various incenses that lure perfume are welcome. It is customary to leave the door to the room in which you will conduct the session half-open so that the guest from the next world can easily enter and exit.
In order not to call upon evil entities, you should use a photo of the deceased, whom you want to call to your aid.
The people conducting the session are seated in a circle, in the center of which a spiritualistic board is laid, candles are lit around. On the saucer, which will need to hold a little over the fire, you should draw an arrow and put it in the center of the board. On the saucer pointer, everyone should put their fingertips, closing the circle.
Now all must chant the spirit, saying aloud: «Spirit (his name), hear us and come!». Be prepared for the fact that the otherworldly essence can go to you for a long time, so cast a spell until you feel the presence of the spirit in the room.
When the spirit comes, he will reveal himself, showing you what he hears and is ready to help. He can lift the saucer or set it aside. Participants who want to deceive your trust will not be able to do this, because fraud is very well marked.
And the shiver that passes through the back in a cold breath is difficult to confuse with something else.
Questions to the spirit asks one person. To establish a connection with him, you should first ask only monosyllabic questions that involve the answers “yes” or “no”, and then move on to more complex ones. Do not ask the entity questions related to death and the afterlife — it can annoy her.
By the time you finish asking the spirit, you should thank him for his help and knock the saucer three times on a wooden surface. This is done to ensure that the otherworldly guest leaves.
Samhain — witchcraft and dangerous time. It obliges us to follow what we do, what we say, what we think. The energy of this day can affect your future life, so take Samhayn with all seriousness.
Release the past, accept life as it is, and tune in to change. We wish you a great mood, success, and don’t forget to press the buttons and
