Practice Dying

In the Celtic Shamanic tradition, we practice dying in many different ways. We die to the past versions of ourselves, to past timelines and stories that no longer resonate. We allow relationships to die that have had their season and given us many teachings. We allow physical, mental and emotional pain to die, detoxing and releasing the energy to be metabolized and transmuted into a new form.

Samhain is a time to honor the ancestors and heal generational trauma. It is a time to remember those who have passed on. The ceremony and symbolism of this time of year reminds us that it’s a natural part of life, to die. As shamans we practicing dying again and again, and in the process, learn how to fully appreciate and live life to it’s fullest.

On the Celtic Wheel of the Year, Samhain is the end of the old spiritual year and the beginning of the new year. It is a releasing and revisioning time where you may choose to let old habits and negative programming go. When you go into the shadow realm, you willingly face what you most fear about yourself and others. You have the opportunity to face your shame, judgment, sadness, fear, anger, whatever is blocking your perception of your own wholeness. You can choose to integrate the teachings, bring them forward to continue working on the issues, or surrender and let them go. During this mystical season, the veil between the worlds is the thinnest and this heightens our psychic sensitivity and ability to communicate with spirits and our guides. When you can face your shadow and heal it with love and compassion, you will have transcended the illusions that you were most scared of.

Samhain was originally a Celtic fire ceremony that marked the end of fall, the harvest time, moving into winter. It is still celebrated by earth based spiritual traditions all over the world. Samhain is one of the major ceremonial holidays on the Wheel of the Year. It reminds us of our connection to the cycle of nature. In many places around the world it is the end of the harvest time, when the weather gets colder and death is in the air. Look around you and you will see the leaves changing color in a last brilliant blaze before they die and fall to the ground. They give themselves back to the earth to fertilize new life in the spring. When we recognize death in nature it helps us to practice facing our own death, or the death of loved ones with more peace and acceptance. We hope you will join us for our upcoming Samhain Ceremony at Angel's Nest in the forest on Sunday, October 29th at 4:00 pm.

As we begin our descent into the shadow realms, remember that you are deeply loved and totally cared for by the Universe. Relax and let is a good day to die.

Bright Blessings,

Wahe Guru/Gisela
