All Souls day, Day of the Dead, Hallowmas, Samhain … Tonight, I ‘priestess’ a ritual at the Interfaith Center in honor of this time of year and with the intent of;
‘Release, let go, surrender, what does not serve your life, and take in the ‘seeds’ of what you wish to keep and plant, nurture to growth for the Spring.
In my spiritual tradition, this is time when ‘the veil between the physical and spiritual world is thin’ and there is opportunity to reflect on the wisdom of our ancestors and to honor those that have gone before us. To release what doesn’t serve the joy and goodness of life and to imagine in this letting go what might give space to something new; a seed to plant and nurture during the winter time of reflection and darkness.
As I prepare for my day: I listen to my ancestors, I listened to my own wisdom, I plant the seeds of Love, joy, and kindness. I reap what I sow.
IN HONOR OF MY MOTHER AND HER GREAT WISDOM… DOROTHY MARIE BEIER MICHIE.
I let go of what isn’t so there is space for what IS
I surrender to my best and highest self
I already know all that I need to know
I trust I am enough exactly as I am
Each moment provides me with everything
I am Everything unfolding moment to moment
I am in each moment pure Love
I am loved unconditionally
I am the roots, the tree, the branches the leaves.
Earth holds me to her sacred roots
Fire feeds my passion and lights my way
Air is my breath and the wind that carries me
Water is my heart open and flowing
