Samhain Greetings

All Hallows Eve…

The edge of winter wrapping itself around me…

Slowly creeping into my bones…

as the old woman of the land approaches.


Tonight powerful energies flow between the worlds

As the golden amber veil thins and parts….

offering us a glimpse into the mysterious otherworld


The warm glow of candlelight in the window

A  sign of welcome for our  ancestors who draw near on this night

Cakes, cookies, homemade bread and other treats to delight

Waiting on a lovingly decorated table.


Tonight we will release that which is no longer needed
in our lives into the flickering flames of our hearth fires
We will treasure the hard earned lessons of the past year
and carry those into the coming new year.
Blessings to you and your loved ones.

Wishing you love, peace, healing
 and joyous new beginnings
  for this Celtic New Year

“Those who have died have never, never left;
the dead are not under the earth,
They are in the rustling trees,
they are in the groaning woods
they are in the crying winds
they are in the moaning rocks
the dead are not under the earth
Tis the ancestors’ breath
when the fire’s voice is herd,
Tis’ the ancestors’ breath
 in the voice of the water
Listen more often to things than to beings.”

Poem by Birago Diop

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other
beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess,
a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything
we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” ~ rose arizmendi
