Guided Meditation for Samhain - Sacrifice
Guided meditations permit a fantasy state in which visions are possible. This guided meditation puts you in the viewpoint of the Lord at Samhain, which is the third and final harvest of the year in which he gives his own life in sacrifice to ensure the abundance of next year’s crops.
Samhain Supper Recipes
Samhain is the doorway into winter when we pagans and Wiccans gather to remember our ancestors, to take stock of the old year, and to welcome the new year. On Samhain night, you want to serve a hearty, warm meal with a light and spicy dessert to follow.
Solitary Samhain Activities
If you celebrate Samhain alone, the occasion will be more contemplative than at a party. But nothing can engage your belief in the magic of the season as strongly as your own solitary celebration with no distractions as you experience a sabbat that you have tailored exactly to your own tastes.
How to Plan Your Samhain Party
Though Samhain is a deeply spiritual and contemplative time for Wiccans, it also marks the new year and is a great time for a party. Here is a sample plan for a house party that you can adapt to your own circumstances to make your Samhain gathering a night to remember.
How to Decorate A Samhain Altar
Whether you have one Samhain altar or several, the ways to decorate it are numerous. Your altar can be large or small. As you look ahead to the approach of Samhain, you might want to create an altar in advance based on the following lists of suggestions.
Witchcraft Using Poppet Magic
Poppet magic is witchcraft that focuses on a small doll known as a poppet, which represents the object on which you are casting your spell. The poppet acts as a conduit that focuses your intent via your spell upon your object.
How to Find Your Patron God or Goddess
Finding your patron god or goddess can be a mysterious and deeply personal process. Not every Wiccan does it, but many do because Wicca is a religion that emphasizes an individual’s one-to-one relationship with the divine. How do you find out which gods are willing to be your patron deities?
Wiccans Who Never Experience Magic
Many Wiccans do not experience mystical states. So should we just work harder? Give up? Or accept our inferior lot in life? Try not to compare yourself to other Wiccans. Your path may be different for a reason.
How to Choose Your Wiccan Wand
The wand is one of the four ritual tools found on a traditional Wiccan altar. Thanks to the Harry Potter books and movies, everybody nowadays knows about wands. Just as shown in those books and movies, the wand is used to channel, focus, and direct psychic energy.
Ideal Wiccan Household
The ideal Wiccan household involves freedom to practice religion, and connection with nature. If you own your own place, you already have the first situation and can probably arrange the second. Consider the following two extremes between which most of us fall.
