It can be very difficult, as a pagan parent, finding a suitable ritual for the whole family and Samhain is especially a beautiful  celebration because we are remembering our ancestors and of course loved ones who have returned to Summerlands or crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

So I thought it would be nice to share this article by Patti Wigington. I hope iy inspires you for this years Samhain celebrations.

If you’re raising kids in a Pagan tradition, it can sometimes be hard to find rituals and ceremonies that are both age appropriate and celebrate the aspects of the particular Sabbat. Factor in that small children tend to have a shorter attention span, and the days of standing in a circle for an hour watching someone chant are pretty much out of reach. That said, there are plenty of ways you can celebrate the different Sabbats with your children.

This ritual is designed to celebrate Samhain with younger kids. Obviously, if your children are older, or you have younger kids who are very focused and mature, you may not need a “kids ritual.” However, for those of you that do, this is a rite you can complete, from start to finish, in about twenty minutes. Also, keep in mind that you are the best judge of what your child is ready for. If he wants to paint his face, bang a drum and chant, let him do so – but if he’d rather participate silently, that’s okay too.

It’s Not The Tools…

This is absolutley true. Doesn’t matter how pretty your athame is. Or how much you spend on all your knick knacks…it’s  YOU who has the power to make the spell work.  Your intent is everything.

This is why you shouldn’t do magick when your heart is filled with negative feelings or if you are  unwell don’t do spellcrafting. I have always said there is no such thing as white or black magick, only grey. Every spell, good or bad, has the potential to switch and become the opposite if the casters intent wills it, even if it isn’t intended.

So before you start take an emotional check on how you are feeling inside!
