The Spiritual Meaning Of Halloween
Halloween isn't only for costumes and partying, but it's considered a powerful turning point in the wheel of the year, signifying the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Halloween is the time when people release and let go of negative and lower energies that hold them back and celebrate the new energy that will eventually take its place.
THE TIME OF THE HALOWEEN
Halloween is not just about carving pumpkins and having spooky costume parties. It is an opportunity to welcome the unknown, release negativity, and bring a little extra intuition into everyday life.
Halloween is celebrated in many countries on October 31 and November 1. People celebrate it by dressing up in costumes and collecting free candies. But in addition to free candy, spooky costumes and ghoulish decoration, Halloween has something more. A deeper spiritual significance is associated with this celebration.
More than just candy and costumes: Halloween is a holiday that can, with a little thought, become deeply spiritual.
The Spiritual Symbolism Of Halloween
Spiritually speaking, Halloween welcomes what we have come to think of as Death season—the wintertime.
Energetically, these are said to be the days when the veil between the worlds is thinnest, so it’s a powerful time for communicating with the dead, healing our own souls, setting intentions, and even casting spells (affirmations), if you’re into that sort of thing.
Haloween represents a time for transformations both personal and environmental. The temperatures drop, leaves fall, and your wardrobe is dominated by clothing that will keep you warm. Death season might sound scary, but it’s a beautiful and important time. In the darkness, we are invited to slow down, to rest, to reflect and remember. It’s time to integrate the lessons of the last year and contemplate what new births we are hoping for in the eventual spring.
Take a cue from the spiritual and use this season to help you find the balance, answers, and spiritual growth you need.
The Season of Spiritual Growth
Fall is the time of year that we set up our internal space and make room for what’s to come in the next year. For those who want to experience the spiritual effects of Halloween, just take some time to cleanse your energy with light and feeling of love.
Some people take a salt bath or do cleansing meditation to keep their energy clear and protected. Even nature models this act for us, when the trees shed and let go of their old leaves.
The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature, and the period of Halloween is definitely one of the most significant spiritual seasons. People associate Halloween with fear. But it is not a festival of fear, rather it is an opportunity to welcome the unknown, release negativity, and bring a little extra intuition into everyday life.
