Samhain has always been one of my favorite holidays, and for many reasons. I was always the black sheep of my family. The weird one. I have always been drawn to the Great Mystery and all things macabre. I hated Disney cartoons as a child, they were too bright and boring. I preferred Jim Henson and Brian Froud. And as much as I love and appreciate the summer, I am not truly in my element until it’s officially autumn. Growing up in Maine, some of my most magickal memories happened during the fall. It was the first day of autumn in 1993 when I fully came to realize I was not like the other kids in my school. I was bullied relentlessly because I was strange. I had purple hair and wore long gauzy dresses with combat boots while everyone else shopped at the Gap. It was also the October of 1993 when I held my very first Samhain ceremony. It was mostly out of curiosity, but as I’ve gotten older, it’s become so much more than just a holiday, it’s a bittersweet reunion to those I have loved who have passed over. And I think many of us empaths enjoy Samhain so much because the weight of the world can get so heavy and for this one night, it feels just a little bit lighter.Im curious as to what will unfold during Samhain this year considering the amount of DEATH that has taken place all over the world. I feel a bit of peace knowing that there will be millions of us holding space for all of those who have passed, it’s important.
