SAMHAIN ANCESTORS MEDITATION
I have struggled to be inspired to create a guided meditation for Samhain this year so instead I am sharing one I created many years ago that is simple and effective.
This meditation takes you to visit your ancestors. It can be used at any time of the year but is very effective now, while the veils to the Otherworld are thin.
You can print off the meditation to keep or just read it through and then let your imagination guide you.
When doing this kind of meditation there are some important things to remember to really get the best from it. The meditation set up is mentioned in the document. But it is also crucial to bring in all of your senses. So as you step into the beginning scene, ask yourself, ‘What do I hear, see, smell, taste? What can I touch? How do I feel?’
Look down at your feet. What are you wearing? How do these clothes feel on your skin?
Really bring your full self into the meditation.
When you meet an ancestor, if you cannot see them clearly, take a moment to ask yourself questions to prompt your imagination. What colour hair do they have, what colour eyes? What are they wearing? How tall are they? How do they sound? By asking questons a picture will begin to form making it easier to interact wit the ancestor that appears.
Lastly remember to enjoy the experience!
HAPPY SAMHAIN TO YOU!
