Through Honoring There is No Final Death

Modern day Halloween is a collective of many superstitions, beliefs, and interpretations. What Halloween means to each of us and its importance in our individual lives varies.  

Halloween, as its modern-day celebration is one my youngest child never found value in, they have no enjoyment in what goes bump in the night, jump scares, the ghouls, or goblins.

I still enjoy a good horror flick, bundled on the couch with snacks and candy but Halloween now represents so much more in our home.  So today, All Hallows Eve I have been sitting and reflecting on my family’s celebration of the day, brought to us by my youngest child’s interpretation of the Day of the Dead Celebration. 

This week we have a place of honor, an ofrenda adorned with many pictures of our loved ones who have transitioned out of this physical world, honored with flowers and candles. Tonight, we will visit the cemetery and leave coins at gravesites my youngest child feels drawn too. Usually, we visit the graves that are the oldest in the lot, long forgotten. When I asked why they visit these graves they told me “Because if we honor them, they are not forgotten and will not face a final death.”

So today, I leave you with a very simple post asking you to find a way to celebrate those beyond the veil on this All Hallows Eve. Perhaps you will join me in a Dia de los Muertos Prayer or an adaption of your own

Dia de los Muertos Prayer

Provident God, your love brings us to birth, your providence guides our lives, and by Your promise we return to dust.

Creator of the Universe, in your grace you promise us that those who die still live in Your presence. Their spirits have simply been transformed but have not ended.  I pray in gratitude and hope for my family, relatives and friends that have gone before me, and for all the dead known to You alone.

Accompanied with Jesus Christ who died and rose from the dead and now lives and reigns with you in unity with the Holy Spirit. May they rejoice in Your kingdom as you unite us together again this sacred morning to worship you.

Thank you for taking time to read this blog. I am here, sending you inspiration, insight, and strength for what lies ahead in your own self-discovery and connection with Spirit. I hope somewhere between the lines of what I share and do not fully say that you find inspiration and revelations about yourself and your own journey. Please, if so, inspired leave a comment. Your feedback will help me better generate topics suited to you, the reader.
