Samhain Public Ritual 

For those local to Montreal, a lot of us will be attending the Samhain Public Ritual at Studio Sundari.

“Samhain is a powerful, moving time of year when we reflect on the loved ones we have lost to death’s embrace. It is said that this is a time when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest, which allows us to communicate with the dead easily, and it allows the dead to whisper to us.

For this Samhain ritual, we will be journeying to the boundaries between the living and the dead. You will be invited to approach the veil, see the shadows of the dead, and whisper your messages to them.

You will also be invited to do some divination for not only yourself, but for others.

We have rented the large room at Studio Sundari, so let’s fill it! Invite your friends and your family to share in this powerful experience. Happy Halloween!

Cost: $5

Meditation 10

Robyn keeps repeating in our spell-casts how important meditation is as a daily practice– and she’s totally right. When done with regularity, meditation lowers blood-pressure, eases depression and anxiety, and helps improve general health and well-being. Even as little as 5 minutes of meditation per day shows these benefits– so what reason is there not to meditate?

If you haven’t ever done any meditation before, you might consider checking out our Meditation 101 post.

 

Imbolc tips from Selene @ the Magical Blend… and ritual candles/we’moon calendars on sale

SGC Admin: From our inbox to you… Check out the latest from the Magical Blend… Thanks Selene for sharing your knowledge with us… 🙂

This is Selene! I know it’s not quite time for Imbolc yet, but I figured I’d pass on some good advice I got recently regarding the holiday. That is, in short, start cleaning now.

For those who don’t know, Imbolc is known to be a time for cleaning, purification, and in general, getting rid of junk. This junk can be metaphysical, metaphorical, or very physical in nature– but you can’t get rid of your emotional baggage until you’ve taken care of the physical stuff, I find. And while I always mean to clean my house on Imbolc, I often find that work and the world in general get in the way of my being able to take a day off and de-junk. As such, my Imbolc rituals always seem just a little guilty; after all, if I really wanted to clean up my altar, wouldn’t I have cleaned up my house first?

Well not this year, folks! I’ve already spent one full weekend getting rid of useless stuff and cleaning out the dust-bunnies, and let me tell you, I’m already feeling way more positive about meeting my Imbolc goals. In fact, I’m planning to keep going at it until my house looks the way I keep saying I want it to look. This year, I will sit down and rededicate my altar without having to apologize to any spiritual presences about the mess.

So here’s my earnest advice for your Imbolc this year: join me, compatriots, in the deadly war against the dust-bunnies. Start your Imbolc cleaning now, and hit it so hard that your house won’t know what happened. Then, on Imbolc, instead of worrying about getting the mess cleaned, instead sit back and enjoy the fact that you’ve already won the battle. 🙂

On Sale….
