If there's ever a time when we shouldn't have to mention the specific date, it would be Samhain, and it is Samhain!
According to lore, Samhain is the time of the year when the veil between the worlds is thinnest. That is when we can most easily reach through the veil to those on the other side, and when those on the other side can most easily reach through to us.
That is not to say that it is not possible at other times, because it certainly is. But this is when it is the easiest to get things done which involve both sides of the veil.
This is when we can remember those who have left us, especially those who have left us since last Samhain. But we can also remember anyone else who has left, even someone who left before we began this particular incarnation. Not only do I commemorate those I knew, I also commemorate those I wish that I would have known (and maybe might have known in another life).
This is a time when we can also look ahead to what is to come. Do you have a vision of what you wish to make of your future? I certainly do. And if you do, now is a great time to ask for it.
So long as you remember the basic "rules" about what you wish for, there is no limit. And, it can happen.
Why do I say that it can happen? You might recall my comments about Chase Utley, the second baseman of the Philadelphia Phillies. He and his wife Jen do a lot for animals. They came to my attention about a year ago when they were involved in the rescue of a dog who had been terribly abused. I'm not a fan of athletics, but someone like that has my respect. It became my opinion that someone like that deserved the best honor he could achieve in his profession - and in his case, that would be winning the World Series. And he did! And those of you who joined in with me had a part of it.
So, yes you can!
And so, this celebration of Samhain can be the most powerful that you have ever experienced, if you're willing to see what's on the other side of the door.
