Halloween Around The World - Ways To Honor Your Ancestors

I thought I'd share some celebrations around the deceased and ancestor worship around the world today.  There are so many of them, so I only got to a few of them but it was so interesting to learn about other traditions revolving around the deceased and ancestors.

Here are just a few ways you can honor your ancestors this Samhain and/or Halloween:

Ways You Can Honor your ancestors

 

  1. Live life with gratitude. Without those who came before you, you would not exist. Acknowledge their hardships and celebrate their life by acknowledging their part in your life.
  2. Create a space or altar for their pictures or items that remind you of your deceased loved ones. Wall space can also be used by placing a shelf on the wall with pictures around it and items on the shelf that represent them. Maybe leave an altar bowl there for offerings.
  3. Make honoring sacrifices to them; light a candle, burn some incense, leave a food offering for them.
  4. Create an outdoor altar for them. Maybe a space in your garden or yard planted with flowers and plants that link you to them. For me, it is pink roses and lilacs that remind me of my father’s lineage. Some spireas for my mother’s line. Maybe it is a stump where you leave offerings of food (safe for critters), rocks, plants/flowers, etc. 
  5. Invite your ancestors into your dream time to visit and impart knowledge and guidance. Simply state the intention before bedtime and ask for them to please be present and that you’d appreciate any guidance that they can give you. Also, that you are graciously listening.

Episode 61: Shadow Magick With Kate Freuler
As always, a profound thanks to our sponsors! See below for listener specials! What is Shadow work? Why is it helpful for Witches? Kate Freuler, author of Of Blood and Bones Magick joins us to discuss the power in stepping outside the “love and light only” framework. We discuss working with the dark moon, common misconceptions about cursing, and the use of blood or bodily fluids in spellwork. We also explore the ethical use of animal components in Magick, along with modern day sacrifices (they aren’t what you might think they are!). Kanani’s husband reviews “The Craft” for us. Listen out for the new word Kanani claims she made up: “Witch-ism!” A listener is struggling with imposter syndrome with regard to their spirituality. How can they feel more comfortable with embracing the title of Witch? Show notes and audio transcript at thatwitchlife.com.

BTW 27: 10 of Wands – Unburden Yourself with adrienne maree brown
Join us for our season finale with superstar special guest, writer and activist adrienne maree brown! We talk about her favorite decks, the pleasures of tarot, the power of witchcraft, and the truth about the 10 of Wands. Usually the 10 of Wands appears when you're feeling burdened, overwhelmed, and when you can't see a way out of the trouble. In the Thoth deck, the 10 of Wands is known as "Oppression" but in this episode we spin that meaning on its head using the wisdom of Octavia Butler. Oppression always implies resistance, and what if your tactic for resistance is... pleasure? Tune in to find out! ********************************** UPCOMING WORKSHOPS *_The Way of the Wands – A 10-Week Workshop *_ Wands are the tools of invocation: the act of calling something into being. In this workshop, we'll be cultivating your ability to focus, and work with the energy of transformation (instead of getting worked over by it) you’ll get weekly one-sheets, meditations, live calls, rituals, tarot spreads, and you'll get to join our special forum to connect with our beautiful community. This is a Between the Worlds workshop and can be purchased as a one off, or is included in your Jupiter level subscriber membership. Click here to register. 9/18/20 5pm PST NEW MOON IN VIRGO HEALING RITUAL During this ritual, as Mars enters its retrograde and the New Moon in Virgo appears we will be focusing on setting intentions; clearing blocks; going deeper into our physical practices; connecting with our most authentic self; and increasing our capacity for joy presence, and pleasure in our bodies, hearts, and minds. DURING THIS RITUAL WE WILL BE: * Receiving guidance and encouragement from our Holy Guardian Angels (our deepest, most authentic selves) for the next step in living out our purpose. * Using ritual techniques to restore our energy and sense of wellbeing * Releasing outmoded beliefs from our bodies and using intention and guided meditation. NOTE: This is Amanda's personal ritual.

143. Monthly Medicine: December is You are Enough
December is a bridge month, a cycle ripe with massive energetic thresholds and wild opportunities for transformative change. We will be in an Eclipse portal until December 14th, and a week later, on December 21st, we will move through the Solstice and The Great Conjunction, Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. We are preparing for our shift into 2021, a Hierophant year, a year that will invite us like never before to say yes to ourselves, to step into our truth, power, and integrity, to know in our bones that we are enough. The entire month of December (and all of it’s astrological and energetic invitations) is devoted to assisting us in clearing and releasing anything that separates us from the belief, the knowing, that we are inherently worthy, potent, powerful, intuitive, capable, and whole. In today’s episode, we will dive into the Wild Soul Collective Reading for the month ahead, Tarot cards for Sagittarius season, Tarot cards for the Great Conjunction, the medicine of Eclipse season, and so much more. WILD SOUL COLLECTIVE READING FOR DECEMBER Card for the month ahead: Seven of Swords The card that is showing up as our teacher: Queen of Cups The lesson of the month ahead: Five of Wands What are we complete with?: Justice, Rx What are we making space for?: Queen of Swords The card that is helping to move us into 2021: Three of Pentacles CWs: The content in this episode contains references to trauma, ancestral trauma, grief, physical illness, injury, and pain, systemic oppression, racism, capitalist structures, and environmental degradation.
