Samhain & May at Qi
This is the time of year when we in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate Samhain, the time of deep Autumn. We celebrate the passing of the old and give thanks to those who have gone before.
This is also a time of transition – the Earth rests so new life can be reborn in Spring. Seeds and shoots rest deep in the soul, and potential rests deep in our bodies. Use this time for meditation and reflection around changes, transitions, beginnings and endings. Are there any habits, behaviours, or relationships that you do not want to carry forward? Be guided by the trees as they shed their leaves to make way for new growth.
This year Samhain falls on May 5. Light a candle and make offerings for your ancestors. The veil between this world and the next is said to be at its thinnest at this time. You may want to place photographs of your ancestors on an altar, set an extra place at dinner, cook and eating your ancestors’ favourite meals, or share happy memories with other family members and friends. Some people leave a plate of food and a glass of wine for wandering spirits.
This is the true time for celebrating “Halloween” or All Hallows’ Eve in the Southern Hemisphere – the popularised “Halloween” of American origin is a remnant of more ancient rituals, and is timed for the Northern Hemisphere cycle. The Jack-o’-lanterns (carved pumpkin shells lit with candles) were originally made to frighten away the spirits thought to roam freely at this time of year.
Another practice that is especially potent at Samhain is divination. Some of the traditional activities from Ireland and Britain involve foretelling one’s future partner:
Peel an apple in one long strip, then toss the peel over the shoulder. The peel is believed to land in the shape of the first letter of the future spouse’s name.
Roast two hazelnuts near an open fire; one named for the person roasting them and the other for the person they desire. If the nuts roast quietly, it foretells a good match. If they jump away from the heat, it is not a good match.
Eat three bites from a Samhain loaf and go to bed in silence without anything to drink. This results in a dream in which the future spouse offers a drink to quench the dreamer’s thirst.
Sit in a darkened room and gaze into a mirror on Samhain night – the face of the future partner will appear in the mirror.
Stones for Samhain: Jasper, Calcite, Obsidian, Carnelian, Sunstone, Opal, Danburite.

Most of the clients and customers I have encountered since beginning my journey as a practitioner in the holistic industry, knowledgeable or not, aspire to ask the same base question.
Whether talking about a particular service or healing modality, especially referrals, or advice on another Practitioner they are planning to see. And that question is: “But are they good?” (Read more)
In the Traditional Chinese Medicine model, it is the disruption to the harmonious flow of Qi, the life force, around the body that creates physical, emotional and behavioral issues. However, it is a two-way street. Physical issues, emotions and behaviors can create imbalances in Qi.
The way I see it is that it almost always comes back to the emotions. Or rather, the way you perceive and judge your reality that creates the emotions…. And then crazily enough you will have also built up a framework of beliefs around which emotions are ok to feel… (Read more)
Have you ever been broken? So much that you felt empty, barren, void? Left without life, left without reason to live, even for a moment, or for a longer time? Have you ever been so sad that you felt the subtle, yet immensely heavy veil of sadness overtake every cell of your body as a physical feeling? Have you ever felt so wrecked that you could not recall any other feeling or state of being alive, other than that misery? Have you ever wept so deeply, so much, that you were drained of tears, breath, memory, life, and any kind of human feeling? (Read more)

When I injured my back at the age of 19, I had no idea of the gift that this would be or of the truly amazing healing journey this would take me on. When, at the time, I was told that I would have to live with the pain and my condition would only get worse, I found answers and positive change through natural healing modalities… (more)
