Halloween is observed worldwide as a time for wearing costumes and carving pumpkins but the roots of Halloween go back to an ancient Celtic festival called Samhain. Samhain occurred on November first and was viewed by Celts to be a time where the veil between the world of the living and the dead became thin and spirits could return to earth.
For many pagans, Samhain is a powerful time to honour the spirits of our ancestors or those who have departed. As the veil is thin, we may wish to connect to our ancient lineage and honour the gifts we inherit through our bloodlines.
As a colour and a metal, copper represents wealth. In the metal form, copper has high electrical and thermal conductivity. It moves and enhances energy and amplifies thoughts and vibrational frequencies. To connect with higher dimensions and to increase psychic abilities, copper is a powerful tool.
As the seasons change and the world around us transforms its colours, it is important to acknowledge the shift taking place. As the days get shorter, light recedes and we move inward entering a new time of reflection and a place of inner growth.
