As the days grow shorter & night holds a weightier seat, let us fully embrace this powerful time of year. This time where the veil is most thin, our earthly realm & spiritual realm dance closely. In the 'thin place' is where the divine is more readily sensed.” There is a Celtic saying that "heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in the thin places that distance is even smaller." Wow... close your eyes, draw a rich breath, and feel, connect, plug in, cross over- you are that powerful & so are your beloved ancestors.
This week at Embody, we shall acknowledge the thin places & celebrate Dia De Los Muertos. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday to celebrate life and honor the dead. We will build an altar to our ancestors & loved ones who have passed on. Bring a photo, a flower, candles, food, drink, or any prized possession to place on the altar. In this sacred act of creation we acknowledge the dead, those on earth, and the divine realm. Collectively we shall celebrate breath & life to the glorious soul scape of Geoff Lamden & body flow with me!
May this bit of beautiful poetic wisdom inspire you & may those who have gone beyond live on forever in your heart.
"Nothing that lives will not see death
Nothing that dies will not see life.... again.
Every moment is food for the life we cling to
Every chance to love someone is a moment that we shall not capture
Bring your hearts to the fire
Bring your minds
Burn it all
You do not need it anymore
Not where you are going
We will only need each other.
