Facing Your Ghosts: A Ritual Practice

It is the season of ghosts.

As we make our way towards the mid-point of Autumn, the darkness yawns open and shadows are revealed.

The thinning of the veils happens not just in the outer world, as what’s dying slips through to the spiritual beyond, but also within our own psyches and our own spiritual layers.

Our own hungry ghosts, that have been lingering just out of sight in the lighter months, now approach the altar of our hearts, awaiting to be seen and fed.

In blatant terms: some of the pain-points within us that generally hide beneath our conscious mind have a tendency to come to the surface right now. What they really wants is to be seen, held, and integrated.

These ghosts could be what we’ve tried to bury too quickly before properly grieving, feeling, or healing.
