*All shall gather outside of Circle and share the tales of Samhain.
*All shall share meditation of the demons of self and all they chose to leave behind with the turning of the Wheel.
It's the Sabbat of Samhain and once again we gather to celebrate. There are many traditions associated with Samhain and many names given this date. As Witches we can pick and choose traditions that fill our fancy but as Witches we cannot underestimate the importance of our work due this night. Certainly we understand the veil is thinnest this night that honors the dead and the thread of ancestor magick is strong. Equally we can understand the importance of the astrological aspect of the Wheel with Samhain being the equal point between the Fall Equinox and The Spring Equinox. It is also the balance of Beltane when Mother Earth is in full bloom in our Hemisphere, a time that She takes to rest and rejuvenate. It is here we must surrender to our most important work.
It is here in honoring the roots of our faith that we hail the tradition of old, the ending of the year. In days of old Harvest was done, perhaps one last picking of the last crops left glistening on snow-covered vines. One last look at anything green struggling to survive before completely being covered by winter's blanket. It is here we gather to celebrate and look back one more time before going within.
It is time to look at our life, the challenges and changes we faced throughout our life and the choices we made in the last year. Some dreams manifested, some were abandoned and some never left our vision for reason known only to us. It is time to inventory our lives, to turn inward where there is only self and to take responsibility of our choices.
As we begin our work let us turn away from all we would blame from our childhood, our circle of friends and all we know in our current situation. As we gather in the company of our Sisters let our work be free of their energy as well. Let us turn within to a place where there is nowhere to hide from our truth of self.
Let all be covered with veil and descend into darkness of self.
See yourself. You have come far on this journey with Goddess and many changes have occurred along your path. Some have brought you great joy, some sorrow, some have empowered you and some still struggle. Celebrate those changes that have been a triumph and give thanks. They a mirror of your true self; strong, worthy and truly a reflection of Goddess of self. It easy to be pleased with our accomplishments, it is equally as easy to ignore what we have not accomplished in manifesting our desire.
Look again my sisters; it is a time of truth. What have we not accomplished this year. What have we ignored from our deepest self. What have we sold short or lay blame on others. What have we allowed in that prevented us from being all we desired to be. What work do we have before us this Sacred Night of Witches. Let our Work begin.
I want you to take every aspect of your life, one at a time and scan each charka for demons associated with this aspect. You know how to do the work and tonight we add the magick of Samhain to empower our fight against these demons that they may die with the ending of the Wheels cycle.
Crown - demon attachment
Third Eye - demon illusion
Throat - demon lies
Heart - demon sloth
Solar - demon shame
Sacral - demon guilt
Root - demon fear.
You will begin with your job. Do demons live in this aspect of your life? In the full awareness of the aspect of your job scan every charka for demons. Does your job allow your charkas to be clear and healthy, serving your higher self? If demons live here give them face or name. Know them well.
Next your family, do demons live in this aspect of your life? In the full awareness of the aspect of your family scan every charka for demons. Does your connection to family allow your charkas to be clear and healthy, serving your higher self? If demons live here give them face or name. Know them well.
Next your circle of friends, do demons live in this aspect of your life? In the full awareness of the aspect of your circle of friends scan every charka for demons. Does your circle of friends allow your charkas to be clear and healthy, serving your higher self? If demons live here give them face or name. Know them well.
Next the mate you choose to love, do demons live in this aspect of your life? In the full awareness of the aspect of your choice of mate scan every charka for demons. Does your choice of mate allow your charkas to be clear and healthy, serving your higher self? If demons live here give them face or name. Know them well.
Now any other aspect of your life that has significance, do demons live in this aspect of your life? In the full awareness of the aspect of your thought scan every charka for demons. In this aspect are your charkas allowed to be clear and healthy, serving your higher self? If demons live here give them face or name. Know them well.
We are making strong choices and decision this Samhain night. Choices that will grant or prevent our desires to manifest. It is only you in the darkness of self and it is you who must face your truths. Give much thought to your choices tonight when the veil is thin and magick is strong. Rise to all you are capable of mastering, rise and face the demons.
When you are ready remove your veil and prepare to dispel the demons of self that keep you from living in the abundance that is yours in the reflection of Goddess.
You have faced the darkness of self. Self where there is no family, friend or co-worker. You have faced self where there is only self to blame for choices and responsibilities that have led us to this point in our life. Many of us have done our work through the year and our demons are small, some have allowed them life within our life. Tonight in truth we name them and tonight in truth we dispel those we chose to no longer feed. Join me now in dispelling the demons and reclaiming self in abundance.
One by one step forward and claim herbs from our Coven's cauldron. Hold them in your hand and recall the demons. With strong breath blow all the demons out and into the herbs. Step forward when you are ready and release them into the fire.
When all are done, one by one we shall enter Sacred Space of Circle and begin our Goddess Medusa celebration of Samhain.
