All Hallows’ Eve, or Samhain, is a celebration of the spirit world and honoring those who have gone before us. On October 31st, the veil between the physical world and the divine, spirit world thins, allowing for a more fluid interaction between the two worlds.
This is a sacred time to tap into the divine/magical realm through things like ritual, communing with nature, and meditation. We are reminded that we are always connected to the divine magical spirit realm and All That Is. By connecting with the moon, nature, and the sacred spirit, we bring forth knowledge and peace from the spirit realm.
During the thinning of the veil, we use talisman such as cinnamon brooms, pumpkins for abundance, candles, and protective crystals such as onyx and obsidian.
Onyx : A powerful protection stone, black onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. Use by computers and cellphones to absorb any toxic energy, and place by your door to stop any negative spirits from entering during the thining of the veil.
A stone of protection and grounding, Obsidian is made of volcanic glass and is excellent for manifestations. Hold it near as you wards off negativity and strengthens focus and concentration.
