#Samhain  #my favorite holiday/sabbat 


The woods,

a place of refuge from the daily havoc and chaos.

A place to sip away at the stillness,

a place that reminds you of truth.

I needed this walk,

all 10 kilometers of them.

because with each step I came closer

to that quiet mind.

A place where there is nothing

but the gentle hum of the wind.

Samhain Offering Ritual


To feed the ones that have passed on their journey and gain their blessings, either leave or bury a few apples and a pomegranate outdoors after libation. As you leave the fruit say:

"O Fruit of Death and Fruit of Life, 
Fruit that eases mortal strife. 
Ease the hunger of the Dead. 
Until They reach Their final stead, 
Be food enough for everyone. 
Until Their journey’s fully done.”
