Today is Hallowe’en and also Samhain, the beginning of the Celtic New Year. There is also a full moon, a Blue moon in Taurus.. The veil between the worlds is much thinner at this time and we feel the deep connection with the ancestors. This is a day of introspection as well as celebration. Even in these times we can find ways to celebrate and to connect.
This morning I was very lucky to take part in a cacao ceremony on this special day, where we shared a beautiful heart space through preparation of cacao, the nourishment of drinking the cacao together and a deep and moving meditation around loving kindness.
I was inspired to write these words afterwards:
I see love in you
I see fear in you
I see deep sorrow in you
I see anger and frustration in you
I see all that I am in you
And I accept it as mine.
My depths are a part of yours
My shallowness is my fear of your depths
Help me to stay safe in my depths
In order to let you in
So I may love myself even more
Through your depths of love.
