Welcome back to Exploring the Magic of Halloween and the Spirit of Fall. Thus far, we’ve discussed a brief history of Halloween and the legend of enchanted apples as well as the ancient tradition of celebrating November 1st as the New Year.
The Magical and Mystical Inspired Tip to consider today is….
Have a Seed Planting Ceremony
As I mentioned in the first article about Halloween – …’The history of holidays is one of the courses that I teach to students who study the ancient wisdom teachings with me. They always find it interesting when I discuss the date of January 1st, which we now toast as the New Year, yet it falls in the dead of winter. If one was working with the elements and magic of nature, would it not make more sense to make resolutions and plant seeds in the Fall, so that they would have time to germinate and sprout forth in the Spring? When one makes a resolution and plants that seed of thought in the dead of winter, there is little warmth and light to nurture these thoughts and it is no surprise to many of us, that the new year resolutions are dead and gone only a few weeks afterwards, as there was no nourishment for the seeds to take hold’.
The power of thought and manifestation allows us to create and form our dreams in our mind so that we can then take action to bring these dreams to fruition. The season of Fall represents this time for our seeds of thought to be planted in our mind, so we can give them some contemplation and introspection.
Want to create a seed planting ceremony tradition of your own?
Here’s your magically inspired tip of the day!
Invite friends to celebrate the New Year on Halloween and make resolutions for the new year. Hand out packages of seeds along with little clay pots filled with soil to each of your guests and invite them to plant new seeds of thought this Fall which will manifest and bloom with their new dreams in the Spring. Use a toothpick and a small piece of white paper to make a sign that sticks in your clay pot and write one word that describes the dream that you are wanting to manifest.
If it’s not too late to plant bulbs in your backyard, dig a small hole and plant some bulbs to hold the energy of your resolutions and dreams. When they bloom this Spring, they will be a powerful reminder of how it takes time for dreams to manifest and that with care and action, they bloom! Don’t forget that you can also plant your old carved pumpkins into the ground with your bulbs, as they make great compost!
