Thursday’s Thoughts | Inspired Quotes of the Week


I am so inspired by the wise words spoken by those who have gone before me.

Our recent celebration of Halloween reminded me that this pagan celebration of ancestors, a special day to seek the wisdom of the ages as we wrap up the fullness that was spring & summer and settle in to the quieter times of fall & winter is something we can all take to heart.

My desire to glean from wisdom preceding me has been reflected in all the quotes on my twitter feed.  What follows is the first of what will be 52 posts a year and, what I hope will come to be something your heart looks forward to showing up in the wonderful world that is your week.  I have concluded them with an Irish Samhain (Halloween) Blessing.

Enjoy & May you be Inspired!

Blessed Be! oh Guardians

Blessed Be! loved ones and friends

Another year’s upon us

As the wheel has turned again

We invite the ancestors one by one

To join us at our meal

We raise our cups in honor

And share memories with zeal

We share a harvest’s bounty

And know deep in our hearts

The past must be cleansed away

For the future to start

The veil is at it’s thinnest

We walk between the worlds

Diviners bring their instruments

And mysteries become unfurled

And now the witching hour is upon us once again

We share a blessed circle with our loved ones and our friends

Blessed Be to Guardians, To deities and more still

Blessed Be To You,

Let The Harvest Your Heart Fill

So Mote It Be!

– Rev. Brightrose Aradia

    I think what I love the most about a broader point of view is that there is so much in COMMON with different traditions. The sentiment of Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos) is also that those who have gone before could come and visit again.
