Skeletons in the closet this Halloween
Greetings welcome guests! In the festive harvest season, my personal favourite holiday is All Hallows Eve, otherwise known as Celtic New Year or Samhain (pronounced Sau-in). Traditionally this was a celebration of thanksgiving and honour of those who have passed to the underworld.
These days we wear costumes and masks to scare away evil spirits, when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest, magic is at its strongest, and illusions rule. Symbolically this celebration allows us to imagine and become someone else for a colourful change, to turn over a new leaf. What would you like to leave behind? Who would you like to be?
Dr. Deepak Chopra was inspired by the Persian mystical poet Rumi when he wrote:
“Our false self is made up of beliefs, expectations, interpretations, memories and fears. Our true Self is rooted in love, awareness and creativity.”
We humans possess the power of choice to change our minds, with the assistance of tools. We have freedom to question WHY we fear that which may help us learn & change, by following through the illusion, and be aware as we create & grow. Would you agree it’s easier said than done? Change can be scary. Memories of pain, trauma, judgement and rejection, even fears of success may hold us back. Our potential is unlimited yet personal evolution of true Self is challenging in the face of fear.
On my journey I have experienced, learned and practiced energetic modalities including Reiki and acupressure which help address and shift patterns which no longer serve us, uncovering forgiveness, peace, gratitude & optimism for well-being & balance. These techniques are tools which have offered me alternative healing solutions of mental and emotional upsets by offering hands-on support enabling space to acknowledge and release terrible horrors and illusions alike of my personal skeletons as I actively face my fears.
Simply put, there are holistic ways to clean out dirty laundry and soothe the soul not yet common knowledge in our Western world of stress and fear, where band-aid solutions are the usual approach.
In his first inaugural address Franklin D. Roosevelt said:
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
