October's occult...

Samhain cometh - Oct 31/Nov1. Samhain is the last of the four significant days that mark the changing of the seasons in Celtic Mythology. It marks the end of the lighter half of the year and the beginning of the darker. It is considered a time of great communication with the "otherworld" - the world of the spirits (fairies etc) and the world of the souls who have passed on. I have written about Samhain and the sacred wells of Ireland before. Samhain is also a time of divination and purification.

I have to believe that this is a very creative time of the year for many.

Actually "occult," "October" and "otherworld" were not my 3 focusing words for yesterday.  I really wasn't in a mood to invoke the spirits, just yet. Instead, I chose - opportunity, optimism and opulence - hmmmm. Well I did have an opportunity to have leftovers on a Monday night - who doesn't :) - I also had an opportunity to join a Canadian Fibre Artist's group on Facebook and if you would like the link, just let me know - it seems to have been started by a group in BC and there are a few Alpaca Farms listed, in addition to designers and teachers.

I am optimistic that the world will continue to improve in spite of the incredible turmoil in politics every where. Change is in the "air."

Opulence, was just wishful thinking.  I figured that if I focused on it long enough, I'd get some sort of reward - I'm still waiting!!

Maybe my opulence will just have to be the beautiful colours that this Fall has displayed!!  This is the Maple tree in my chaotic backyard.

My next three focusing words are productive, promise and potential.

Hope you had an opulent day!!
