J and I did a small Samhuinn ritual tonight. We offered our thanks to the Ancestors, and talked a little about who we would like to be present (if they were amenable, of course!) We also did a small meditation involving the Cailleach, offering to her cauldron anything that no longer serves us. We closed with giving thanks to the Ancestors, to mother Earth, to the four elements, and to the four directions and their aspects.
I felt like it was pretty powerful, though I can’t really put my finger on “why”. I just felt very in touch with everything/spirit/source/what have you. I felt a great sense of peace, belonging, and that certain unnamed sources “had my back”.
We did a 5 card spread divination each, and both J and I received some reassurance. I’ve had to make some important decisions lately… nothing that would affect my life in a HUGE way, but things that definitely would make my life easier with a positive outcome. I got some positive feedback. I felt that it was positive in reinforcing what I have already accomplished. Sort of like telling me what I was feeling was right, and that I did the right thing. I can always use that!
Can’t wait for Saturday’s ADF ritual! 😀
Here’s what my Samhuinn altar looks like! 😀
