Celebration of Halloween
Halloween (October 31st) is short for All Hallows Eve and is a part of a triple holiday with November 1st (All Saints Day) and November 2nd. (All Souls Day). It is the time of year in which we honor all souls that have died and live on in spirit. The three days together make up “The Days of the Dead”. “Hallow” means to honor as holy. This triple holiday is a perfect time of the year, to honor all souls that have already passed over and lift them up in prayer.
Historically, it is believed that on these days the veil is the thinnest between Earth, Heaven and Hell. Starting on October 1st the veil starts to thin. Thirty days following Halloween it returns to its original density.
This is a good time of year to invoke the Divine counsel of Loved Ones that have transcended into Spirit. Paranormal activity is rampant this time of year. Malevolent beings can disguise themselves as loved ones that have passed over. This is why it says in the bible to test the spirit. If you call upon the power of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to ask that they reveal themselves they cannot hide in disguise. Just because they reveal themselves doesn’t mean they will leave. Banishing negative energy may be more complex.
Smudging, Light Worker’s Chant, and Angel Tuning Forks are just a few of the many techniques that can be used for banishing of negative energy. Smudging is the act of burning sacred herbs to transmute negative energy. Burning sage and other herbs release negative ions, which research has linked to more positive moods. Smudging increases the oxygen supply to the brain, producing a relaxation of muscle tension as the smoke transforms the molecular structure of air and energy, producing a cleansing effect.
Prior to smudging, breathe deeply and clear your mind as you set intentions to banish all negative energy. Ask for that which is only of 100% Divine Light to work through you in this process. Place the herbs in a fireproof container, light them and gently blow out the flame so that the herbs continue to smolder. If you are smudging with Palo Santo, all you need to do is light one end of the stick. Bring the smoke with your hand or feather over your crown chakra (using a fanning motion) then downward through all your other chakras drawing it to your feet. If smudging a room or space, use a fan, feather or your hand to drive the smoke into all corners of the room, as you hold the intention to banish negative energy and invite in purity and light.
The Light Worker’s Chant has been created and copyrighted by the co-founder of the Pyramid of Enlightenment, Lee Ann Cornell. This chant has been used many times over to banish negative energy. It may be found on Amazon Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube. This song can be purchased as a CD through the Pyramid of Enlightenment online or in the store.
Angel tuning forks can be used to change the frequency of a space to raise the vibration and banish negative energy. These three forks are available for purchase through the Pyramid of Enlightenment.
French, Irish and English immigrants brought us a variety of customs. Dressing up for Halloween comes from the French. Jack-o-lanterns come from the Irish and the English went door to door for “soul-cakes” promising to pray for the departed loved ones of those who gave them these treats. Remember, Halloween is the time to be joyful, raise the vibrations and have fun.
