We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience

Samhain




Samhain is known by most folks as Halloween, but for many modern Pagans it's considered a Sabbat to honor the ancestors who came before us, marking the dark time of the year. It's a good time to contact the spirit world because it's the time when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest.

Sunset on Samhain is the beginning of the Celtic New Year. The old year has passed, the harvest has been gathered, cattle and sheep have been brought in from the fields, and the leaves have fallen from the trees. The earth slowly begins to die around us.

It is a good time to think about death that - for the time - is a natural reality and to remember deceased family members. I, personally,  don't use the Ouija Board because I believe that we never know who's really is on the side of the "line".

Recent scientific works pointed out that consciousness is created within the biological body from it's own separate particles that are complementary to mass, in the same way that magnetism is complementary to electric charge. The only thing that remains is to find a way of interaction so that we can "see" these particles in order to photograph our soul.

Our inability to "see" these particles creates the so called "veil". If we try to see through a surface to somewhere that is unseen the effect is a blackness on that surface like the event horizon of a black hole. If this separating surface emits a faint light for some reason the effect is the so called "veil". "Veiled" ghosts are a similar effect, an unseen entity with a faintly radiating surface. Black shadows are unseen entities without the radiating surface. The veil is not normally seen by all people at all times because it is in other dimensions than the three normal.

The spirits of our ancestors live on after their death in other dimension, but otherwise near our own world. That will soon be proved. The belief that the veil gets thinner or thicker is still a religious belief for the time being.

I personally used to think that the period between Samhain and Imbolc is the cold part of the year and since I hate cold, I tend to lock myself inside...

Some Hay Creek Festival treasures ~ 2017


Yesterday was the Hay Creek Festival at Joanna Furnace & Hay Creek Historical Society. I try to attend this event every year because it is so much FUN! It is a non-profit organization and there is no price for admission. However, I always make sure to give a donation to the parking attendant. I would truly hate to see this place go away. They have three major yearly events: The Hay Creek Festival with craft shows featuring all kinds of cool exhibitions, The Hay Creek Apple Festival with great homemade foods and desserts along with a flea market full of holiday crafts and so forth and the third event is "Christmas at Joanna."

Here are just a few of the awesome treasures I found yesterday ...

Large ceramic Pumpkin candy dish with vintage candy bags - $1.00

$5.00 (old cat painting, framed and in great condition)

Holiday tissue box covers - $3.00

$1.00 (with battery operated light to use inside)

Crocheted top holiday hand towels - $3.50
Hanging sound motion door decoration - $2.00

$1.00

Handmade glass black cat choker -$6.00


They actually cook the soups fresh right where the food stands are in these HUGE black cast iron cauldrons and the sell them by the bowl and by the container ...

Homemade chicken noodle soup and ham and bean soup

I love the fall season because there is so much to see and do at this time of the year and ... this place is one of my favorite places to go!

Brightest Blessings all!

This and That ...



Happy Saturday everyone! Hope all is well! This week I am on vacation again and have a few things planned to do ... many of them not what you would consider very exciting. However, I am planning to get together with some old friends - and my sister Robin and I are also planning to get together next Sunday afternoon for a bit of "sister time."

And, I have added a couple of more little holiday decorations in the house ...
 Crow and Jack-o-lantern

One of my Jim Shore favorites - black cat and crow!


Well, that is about all for now. Until next time ...

 Have a blessed weekend all!
