Honoring Those Who Have Gone Before Us
A huge part of celebrating Samhain is celebrating our ancestors and those who have gone before us.
One of my favorite activities is perusing old cemeteries. The older the better. :)))
This is something that you can do to honor those who have gone before you by remembering them.
Choose one or two people who were prominent in the town that you live in and find out where they have been laid to rest. Learn as much as you can about them before you go. Plan an afternoon to go to where their grave site is and see if you can find their marker. On the way there choose a pretty stone to give them as an offering to celebrate their life. :))
Something else you can do on the same trip is wander around and see if any stones call to you. When you find one that does see if you pick up any energy. Write down the name on the stone and the date and then when you get home you can try to research the person on the internet and see if anything comes up.
Although rare sometimes entities or energy surrounding a site may not be pleasant. When this happens just leave. Don't try to help or figure things out, trust your intuition and walk away. :))) If this happens ground and redo your shield, you should do this anyway after any intuitive exercise. :))))
Have fun with it! :))) Learning about the history of people can be amazing. :))
Much Love and Many Blessings,
