Last night I danced beneath the Samhain Moon. It wasn’t quite what one might think a dance beneath the Samhain moon might be. There were no spooky spirits flying about, no black cats and scary bats, no goblins, no ghosts. There were no mystical chants, no candles burning bright … just me dancing beneath the moon light. Let me explain a little more about my Samhain night….
There I was standing beneath the crescent moon in a misty fog when I was taken by the hand and guided down a path. I wondered where I was being guided and why but I did not hesitate and I did not fear the journey ahead of me. I felt safe and secure, so I took the strangers hand and I put one foot in front of another and I walked slowly and calmly down this path. I wasn’t sure where I was or where I was going but something inside me knew this was a path I must take. Suddenly the stranger stops and turns to me, looks me in the eyes and with a mutual understanding we began to dance. No words were ever spoken. We danced and danced, twirled and swayed to music that wasn’t even there. The scene was all dressed in shades of gray with a reflective lake just to the right of the path and the crescent moon directly above. There was a low lying mist of mystery that danced along with us as the night passed. I kept wondering what this was and what it all meant. There was such a feeling of calm and peace that surrounded us and filled my entire being. I could not have been more at ease than I was this night.
So who was this stranger in the night?
To my surprise I found that it was none other than LOVE itself. What a great feeling this was. I was granted the most magical night of all. To dance with love through the night, ending with a sweet embrace of knowing that Love is always with me. It is the seed that is my beginning and that has grown as I have grown through the years and that shall continue with me when my Earthly days are gone and together we return to the light.
UPDATE – October 2015
I guess what I should add to this story … now that it is 2 years later and makes it all the more magical… At the time of this vision, my life was completely void of love. I felt heartbroken every day. My spirit was in pain but I had hopes.. I have always had hopes that the pain would someday fade away and that love would prevail. The universe saw me suffering and made changes to my life so that I would no longer suffer that kind of pain I was making myself endure for so long. I am filled with gratitude to the Universe. Love is no longer a dream… love is inside me and with me and all around me.
