There is no denying it. The veil is thinner the ancestors are waiting. And so is the spirit world. As I am walking the earth, I can sense the excitement of the nature spirits. The fairy world, the little people, the devas, the earth sprits, and elementals are dancing.

The sacred portal is open for this night of prayer and dance.
When the day rises, I will begin the preparation. I will stir the sacred fire and leave offerings. Gather my herbal medicine. We will cook food for the ancestors, the spirit world and ourselves.
This year I feel especially grateful for this time. After spending precious time with my family, I can feel the ancestors gathering with even more joy.
Tonight when dusk settles we will gather, light candles, build a fire in the cauldron, gather the ancestors, both from our human and spirit tribe. We will sing, tell stories, pray, laugh, cry and sit in silence to let the heart speak. We will give offerings and gratitude.
This sacred portal of Samhain marks the change of seasons, when we truly let go of this year’s cycle and begin the journey into the depth of our soul. Gathering the gifts of the ancestors, our heritage. Becoming still and listening to our soul song to emerge from deep within us. Remember who we are. Following this song to our destiny.
I carry the spirit of the Gypsy Witch and as such encourage you – today, on this day of Samhain, in this year when we are called to drop the old and find the new. Be free, sit, listen, call on your ancestor spirits, your heritage and your soul mission. And celebrate!
If you have never done this before, let your ancestors show you. Know that when you light the sacred fire of your ceremony, your inner fire is ignited.
You may dance, you may sing, you may sit in silence, alone or with others. You may write, or draw, or paint, or craft. You will cook your favorite food, feast, or fast (although the spirits really, really like a feast!!!!)
You may drum, or play the rattle, or burn incense, or cast a circle of salt. But know this!
When you are done, when your body is nourished, the dancing has stopped, the voice is quiet. When the spirits have received your offering and the fire has died down.
You will feel the hand of your ancestors leading you towards your destiny deeper into the magical, mystical depth of knowing. And then all you need to do is listen!
