There is a stillness in the air tonight…a preamble towards Imbolc.
These last days of the Winter in the Celtic Cycle are a time of reflection…
Spirals fascinate me, as they fascinate so many people.
We are drawn towards them.
They mean something to us, something we have forgotten.
My Celtic ancestors carved Sacred Spirals on stones…and so they appear to us today, a message from the past, but we have lost the key to understand their meanings.
They, too, would have gazed up at the night sky and tried to understand their world.
They, too, would have intuited a connectivity in all life…we continue to subconsciously embrace all life, yet we struggle against great odds, for we have been told for millennia that we are superior, and so removed from that life force.
And so we try to make our way back to where we can, once more, connect to life.
For we now know, on a deeply spiritual, non-religious level, that we are one.
We are one, as the spiral depicts an eternal connection, we are one.
Spirals are full of symbolism.
The spiral is found all over the natural world and indeed is also the symbol of life itself, as represented in the famous double helix, the molecular structure of life.
The belief among the Celts, was that communication with nature was the chief priority in their lives, and the sound, immovable belief in the consciousness of all things.
They did not fear death as we do in this present time.
Everything was connected, there was no beginning and no end.
Every single thing upon and in the earth had a consciousness and was a part of, a fragment of, the one cosmic entity.
The sacred spiral, I believe, was a representation of this belief.
Stones were considered to be old before time itself…a fascinating thought and a manifestation of a deep spiritual understanding, if not connection.
The Winter is almost at a close…just another fifteen days left.
The joy of Spring awaits to be welcomed in on the first day of February…Imbolc!
As in the nature of the Sacred Spiral, we move inexorably along the path of our life, but not alone, for we are one with the Universe…
We now know we are made of that oneness, stardust itself!
The Celts recognized the great sight held by someone who was physically blind.
That person had the greatest sight…inner sight.
Perhaps it’s time for us to connect with our own inner sight and begin to see with our intuition.

My grands would have loved your words of theses last posts. Daly and Carrol, this night a little boy who was trick or treating my block rushed into the house growling. He was dressed as a green dragon. Leum was his name. What a treat for me. His mothers eyes grew wide when I said Blessings of Samhain to you. All she could do was nod since we had others filling the front door. Blessings to all this Samhain eve.
And a Happy New Year to you too!
