Not only did I begin my very own Annual Halloween Blog Hop this year, but I was also honored to be invited back to post for the lovely ParaGoddess, Author JoLynne Valerie’s Annual Halloween Blog Hop! I am also proud to call JoLynne my best friend, and I invite you to check out her incredible Paranormal books, as well as her lovely and Magickal way of sharing her healthy recipes, fitness routines, Cosmic Energies, and beautiful way of making everyday positive and Spiritual via social media. You can find her on Facebook here, Instagram here, and on Twitter here. And today, she is also posting on my 1st Annual Halloween Blog Hop - 8 Days of Spooky Goodness with The Guidance Goddess and Friends.

And without further ado, my post!
Halloween is a big holiday for Pagans, Wiccans, Witchy and Magickal people, children, and for the Inner Child in all of us. Light some orange, yellow, white, and black candles, and join me in reading a short poem while honoring this day when the Veil is thin, and our Ancestors and Spirit Guides come through with messages louder and clearer than ever.
The Winds of All Hallow’s Eve
Shifting winds and cloudy fog
A swift chill in the air.
Magickal happenings are afoot,
and rambling Spirits call.
She wanders as if lost,
Calling to a Love no longer there;
The Lone Wolf howls against the darkening Moon,
And whispers shuffle through the leaves.
She is the Beauty and the Loss in us all,
Her skirts rustle and her Ancestors call.
There is a low hum and a deep drumbeat
That few can hear; She has never lost the tune.
Helping those who need it most,
Answers she brings from Behind the Veil.
When others ache for comfort,
Hers is the answer they seek time and time again.
So on this night of bittersweet chill,
Do not fear for the Samhain Goddess.
Hers is a Path that is often walked alone,
Hers is the Path of the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone.
When you look for messages in the shifting tides,
Her Spirit will blow feathers to you on the Wind.
Honor her and offer her thanks,
And remember her call when you long to dance.

Since the moon is full tonight, let us call upon the stars in prayer. The power of concentration, seen through the bright, one-pointed mind, is shaking the universe.
All living beings are present tonight to witness the ocean of fear flooding the Earth.
Upon the sound of the midnight bell, everyone in the ten directions joins hands and enters the meditation on Mahakaruna.
Compassion springs from the heart, as pure, refreshing water, healing the wounds of life.
From the highest peak of the Mind Mountain, the blessed water streams down, penetrating rice fields and orange groves.
The poisonous snake drinks a drop of this nectar from the tip of a blade of grass, and the poison on its tongue vanishes.
Mara’s arrow’s are transformed into fragrant flowers.
The wondrous action of the healing water–a mysterious transformation! A child now holds the snake in her innocent arms.
Leaves are still green in the ancient garden. The shimmering sunlight smiles on the snow, and the sacred spring still flows toward the East.
On Avalokita’s willow branch, or in my heart, the healing water is the same.
Tonight all weapons fall at our feet and turn to dust.
One flower, two flowers, millions of little flowers appear in the green fields.
The gate of deliverance opens with a smile on the lips of my innocent child.
