Honoring the departed

How wonderful it is that every culture honors the ones who are departed, the ones who are dead, the ancestors who lived to be Elders, the ones who departed as youth. The ones who lived a life of fullness, and ones who did not.

Some festivals are celebrated worldwide, though they may have started from a particular region. October 31st is Halloween, or Allhallowtide, the time in the  year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints.  November 1 is Dia de los Muertos in Mexico.

“Residents with painted faces and holding candles participate in El Paseo de Las Almas, The Walk of Souls, during a Day of the Dead festival…Though the subject of the holiday—dead relatives—is solemn, in practice, Day of the Dead is a brightly colored and joyous celebration”~ Emily Gaudette,Newsweek

What does death mean to you? Read  Death is just a door for a healing look at death or for a joyful awareness of it in Death Perspective.

In your daily sync today, honor Mother Earth who is the resting place for us all, in life and death. Our ancestors form an integral part of her, and in thanking her everyday, we are honoring them everyday.

Synchronize. That is the call of Gaia: Mother Earth and all beings. With a daily practice of loving gratitude, receive, absorb and radiate her loving light. Share this message with all. Gaia is calling.dayofthedead
