Samhain VS Halloween

SamhainHalloweenAris Durocher

Samhain is a day that we honor those we love that have passed on. There are many ways to honor the dearly departed, it is up to each person to honor in thier way that represents their bond to their loved ones that have crossed over.

Reflecting on Halloween years ago, I arrived at the thought that Halloween is more than giving out candies to delighted children. Halloween offers a different aspect of giving.

I relected that Halloween is the one time of the year that Strangers open up thier doors to other strangers and GIVE without expecting anything in return.  Any other event there is expectation attached to giving, but not Halloween. The festivities of Halloween truely represents presenting others with a treat of giving free of all expecations.

Upon Each Samhain

The Daily Awakening

Happy Samhain

This is one of my favorite poems.

Upon Each Samhain

I miss you most upon each Samhain
When the boundary turns to sheer
I wait until the veil is parted
At the ending of the year.

Samhain

Sweet spirit, as you walk among us
At the tolling of this eve
I see your face beyond the sunset
And hear your voice upon the breeze.

In the glowing of the candle,
From the shadow on the wall
I watch for you in every movement
And hear your footsteps in the hall.

samhain

Can you sit and spend the evening
As the portal opens wide?
Ancestral dead, I bid you welcome
Most recent dead, I pray, abide.
When you come I sense your presence

Happy Samhain

I put my hand out in the air
A moment, then, we stand united
Palm to palm while waiting there.
I miss you most upon each Samhain
When the boundary…

We share these hours until the dawning
Then bid farewell until next year.

Happy Samhain/Halloween~ All Saints~ Souls Day

The Daily Awakening

I love this time of the year. What marks Samhain/Halloween/All Souls Day/All Saints Day, as special and unique is that it is the ONLY time of the year that people open their doors to strangers. It is the one and only time of the year that people give openly without hesitation to strangers. It is a demonstration to the art of giving without a single  thought  of receiving back what one has given to perfect strangers. It is in turn unlike any other festivity or holiday in the human specter . No matter what one chooses to call this time of the year, it is without a doubt an act of giving with no intent to get something back. Samhain is absolutely one of my favorite times of the year ~The act of giving  to perfect strangers sets up the new year ( celtic) as one of promise, hope and…

Today’s Reflection: Its not what you look at that matters is what you see

Good Morning Beautiful Peeps,

Itsnotwhatyoulookat

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Quote below by: Aris Arnelle Durocher Of Pagan Media Bites. Com & Of Peoples Voices

Some people can look beyond face value and delve into the deep interior of human souls and thoughts.

Have you ever tested yourself, your unopened gifts that you were given to you. Push and challenge yourself and don’t take all things at face value.  There is always more to see!!!

Have a great weekend beautiful peeps and remember in all you do be Idle No More, Occupy and stand United as one million to one billion strong!
