On Samhain night (pronounced sow-in) it is said the veil between the worlds is at it’s thinnest. That mysterious cloak separating the realm of our deceased from the realm of our living. Many cultures subscribe to this thought, from pre-Celtic peoples to modern Mexican. This dark time of the year is closely connected with the Crone, or Wise Old Woman, and marks the beginning of the end in the yearly cycle. On this night, more commonly known as Halloween, and within three days of the Full Moon, I created a gemstone elixir intended for working with our Ancestors. Specifically for healing work.
This work may be taken on with intention and ceremony, or through Shamanic processes; journeys, curse unraveling, negative core belief repair, or even before meditation and opening your heart to communication; thereby facilitating conflict resolution or ‘saying what was left unsaid’.
Perhaps you have other methods at hand in your healing basket.
Simply take 3 drops under your tongue before you begin and periodically as you are called to during the healing work.
Get creative, you could add a few drops to a preparatory bath, anoint candles, tools, objects or yourself, mist your sacred space or even as an offering.
This Ancestral Healing Elixir was lovingly prepared with:
Clear Quartz crystal with a naturally formed Ancestral Timeline: This type of formation has an inherent ability to trace ancestral difficulties to it’s source for healing to take place as well as holding the regular clear quartz aspects; amplifying energy, being easily programmable for specific intention, enhancing mental clarity, harmonizing & balancing energy while being, healing and protective.
Petalite: sometimes called the “stone of angels” it is extremely useful for ancestral & family healing, going back to a time before the dysfunction arose.
This gemstone carries a high spiritual vibration, facilitates connection with the spirit realm, intuitive ability & clairsentience while clearing negative energy and lending
protection. Petalite brings a peaceful calm to situations and is quite useful for astral travel & meditation. Also considered a shamanic stone.
Labradorite: bringing clarity, understanding, harmony, strength, enhancing intuition & psychic perception, especially during times of conflict and change.
Linked to the Crone, Labradorite facilitates inner knowledge of the Mysteries, helps to release judgements and bring ‘shadowed aspects’ into the light.
This stone is also considered a shamanic stone and supports shamanic journeying.
Citrine: offers courage & self discipline, supports getting tasks done & matters settled. Great for uplifting mood & bringing forth feelings of Generosity.
Helpful with healing emotional trauma. A stone that never needs energetic “cleaning” after use and is a gentle beacon of Light during intense work.
Samhain Energy: A long held time of communion with Ancestors and the Deceased.
Full Moon: A most profound refection of the Life, Death, Rebirth cycle, the Moon at it’s fullest heightens energy & empowers intention.
