Samhain & Hallows Eve: Connecting with our Spirit Crew

Samhain is upon us! The time of year when the veil between worlds is the thinnest, making it is easier to connect beings and energies on the other side. Do you know your spirit crew yet? Everyone has guides and ancestors on the other side wanting to help and support us on our journey, some may be ancestors you are not even aware of, or other spiritual, cosmic and innerdimensional beings that are waiting to meet us half way! ⁠

If you're not sure how to connect with your ancestors or other guiding spirits, we've crafted a great Ritual Kit to help you travel through the veil in a safe and protected way, so you might find the motivation and inspiration in your practice. Shop our Samhain & Hallows Eve Ritual Kit HERE and see below for some ritual inspo!

Our Samhain Ritual Kit in an altar set up


  • Find a sacred space in which you will not be bothered for at least 30 minutes. ⁠
  • Have all of the tools from the Ritual Kit near you, plus some salt and a dagger or quartz point, or other athame. ⁠
  • Sprinkle a protective salt circle around you.⁠
  • Trace the circle with your athame, dagger, or crystal quartz point, to banish any negative entities from your workspace, and seal your circle of protection. ⁠
  • Using a match, light the Violet candle for grounding and opening of the Crown Chakra. ⁠
  • Next the black candle for protection and exorcising negativity, and to absorb any dark energy which may sneak in. ⁠
  • Anoint your wrists, souls of feet, third eye, and temples with Frankincense essential oil, used for spiritual connection, protection, and exorcism of negativity or evil.⁠ Pro Tip: Before use, test a tiny amount of oil our on yourself to make sure you are not reactive to the oil.
  • Keep the Carnelian, Obsidian, and Quartz nearby for amplification of your ritual, for grounding, energizing your ritual, and releasing negative karma.⁠ Pro Tip: Add Labradorite for extra spiritual and divine connection.
  • Using the candle's flame, light the mini cedar bouquet for protection, luck, and purification and spread smoke w/ Turkey Feather.⁠ When doing this envision these things happening to you. Consider different scenarios where you are protected and purified. After you feel comfortable with this, move on to the next step.
  • Light Holy palo santo wood to connect to your ancestral and spiritual family trees.⁠ Close your eyes and ask any guiding spirits or ancestors to come peacefully into your awareness. You may see them, sense them, or hear them. There may also be a smell associated with them: where they lived for instance, or of a food they loved or perfume they wore. Be patient, and the messages will come. If you only get clues you may have to repeat the process several times to get a more clear connection. Don't get discouraged- all good magick takes time and continued effort! ⁠
  • When you're done, purify the space with California white sage stick.⁠  

 

Repeat this process as necessary. Remember, any time is a good time to connect with your guides, not just Samhain! If you're looking for a seasonal way to honor the dead, All Saint Day & Dia De Los Muertos can be celebrated through November 2. Additionally, as an alternative way to celebrate the controversial holiday of Thanksgiving, try practicing gratitude and honor this month, especially for our ancestors.

    Kitchen Witch" is a term used for cunning or witchy folx whose spiritual practice is rooted within food, mealtimes, and the home.
