Halloween is a pretty controversial holiday. When we research and discover where holidays come from and how they were started it can be startling. A lot of people feel Halloween is evil, many see it as a spiritual day, and some think it’s a fun candy filled day.
My Thoughts on Halloween
Me, I’m somewhere in the middle. I don’t believe that it’s an evil day, nor is it merely about getting in character and getting mass amounts of candy. This year we didn’t do Halloween and it’s not for any specific reason than that day crept up on me and it was a Monday! I do believe there is a metaphysical meaning to this day, and many others.
As above, so below. On earth, as in heaven. It’s all connected.
There were lots of weekend activities going on, but the teen had practice, the baby had plans, so I was unprepared for Halloween. I do believe that energies are heightened on this day.
Hellish Halloween Day
Halloween morning I had an unsettling feeling. When I got to work I discovered why. It was the worst day I’ve had in a long time, and this is coming from a woman who has been through a lot! I spent the day in a shook state. By that I mean my energy, emotions, and thoughts were running so high. Literally, I was shaking. It wasn’t until I got home, evaluated the day and decided what I could do, that things calmed down.
I rolled out my yoga mat and made two declarations:
- Commit to daily yoga practice
I've been on again and off again with my daily yoga practice. This situation forced me on my mat to process and relax. IT FELT SO GOOD! It's what has been missing in my life. I make time each night to practice for 10-20 minutes, and I get the best sleep I've had in a while! All that negative energy that came at me, instead of storing it up, it's the fuel I use to roll out my mat and push my business into the next phase.
While I didn’t participate in the festivities of Halloween, I did feel the force of energy that was released that day. Halloween 2016 the veil was opened from my eyes and I was able to shift along with the season, the energy, and my purpose.
Next year I do plan to celebrate the day and even get dressed up! I haven’t done that since I was a girl. I’m already thinking of cute girl trios we could be. My teen is not going to like me.
