Today is the day we come to terms with Summer being really over. Gone are the lazy picnics, the outdoor concerts, the back yard BBQ. Last night was the “witching hour” or Samhain. We can call this the time when we come to terms (and even make light of) things that are dark and scary. We allow our shadow selves to come out – some of us dress up, beg for candy or party. Then “All Saints Day” happens today. What does this mean for those of us who KNOW we are not saints? I believe it means we are given an opportunity to rekindle our relationship with the Divine. We have seen our darker side and we can heal it now. But it is very difficult to heal oneself, without help. This is where the “Saints” come in. I don’t use that word in the traditional sense. I do not mean formally canonized Roman Catholic Saints. I mean those people, places and things that we know are full of love and light. This will be different for each person. For some people that may be actual Saints. For most of us this means loving, gracious and giving people in our lives. For some of us it could be our Ancestors – who came through many difficult things and who are likely so happy that we have the life we enjoy today. Or some people call upon Mother Nature as the primary source of love and support. Whatever or whomever that is for you, consider calling on them now. Yes, today is a special day to call on all of our loving guides for extra encouragement and support. After we have seen our shadow selves, now it is time to see the light. There is great light within each one of you. If you don’t see that already, find someone who does. Let them help you to see it. You are LOVE and LIGHT. You are an ETERNAL spiritual being who is having a temporary physical experience. Whatever it may bring for you, find the joy within it. And if you don’t feel any joy at all, reach out to whatever you think of as whole, or saintly. Humbly ask for help. You will find it. I promise! I am sending each one of you all my love and light. Thank you for reading this and being with me on this journey.
