In full-tilt Scorpio season, Samhain weekend, Day of the Dead (and my birthday) right around the corner on Tuesday.
I am quite grateful.
I am grateful for knowing that, in this season, the veils between the worlds are as thin as they ever get, so I am not upset or afraid by the amount of dreams/thoughts/whispers of my loved and remembered dead this last week.
I am grateful that I get to attend two big rituals this weekend and explore the ofrendas (altars) in the city on Tuesday. This is my favorite holiday!!
I am grateful that I am devoted to this practice. I used to dread the dark time of the year and I don’t any more. Now it makes sense to me. Now it feels right. I am blessed by knowing that the chatter in my head—that monkey mind—is not the truth. And that I have developed and am continuing to develop the muscle to step away from the negative thoughts that dance around screaming and scheming in my head.
I am grateful. I am blessed.
This is a holy day (aren’t they all? think about it).
Thank you thank you thank you.
