As we approach Samhain the veils are noticeably thinning, and it is becoming easier to reach those who are on the other side. It is also the time of year when we honor those ancestors that have gone before us. For many of us, those who have crossed before us have left us with scars. These scars can be just from the loss of our loved ones, or they can be from things that happened before they crossed. A huge step to healing these wounds is talking to them and realizing that they are still around. No this isn't just for those who are more sensitive to spirits. Anyone can communicate with those who have crossed. It may be easier for some to get messages back and forth, but if you talk, I promise you they will listen.
Sometimes just knowing that you have that option to communicate that is enough to help heal. When you talk to them you can make it as simple or ritual like as you wish. If you are comfortable just sitting down in a chair one evening and talking to them, then do so. I will think about the person, and try to sense them. Focus my energy on them for awhile until I feel a tingling sensation then I will talk. I don't talk out loud. I direct my thoughts to them. Hopefully this will make sense. You can also light a white candle to help facilitate communication. If you wish to cast a circle as you feel more protected, by all means do so. Bottom line is you have the option to talk to them.
Will you hear them answer you? You may not hear anything. You may not feel anything. However, know that they have heard you. Be very aware of your surroundings over the next couple of days as it is quite likely you will receive a sign from them in acknowledgement. It can be an animal that crosses your path, a dream, an article, something will likely jump at you and make you go hmmmm. :)))) I do hope this helps.
Love and Blessings,
