What is the source of your inspiration?

Inspiration.

The thing that prompts us to create…something.

What inspirations do you breathe as you inhale?

What sparks your inner muse?

Question from Caitlin Matthews’ Celtic Devotional. Practices for Samhain. 

Practices for the Winter quarter of Samhain (1 Nov- 31 Jan) by Caitlin Matthews:

    • Practice introspection, meditation, contemplation, drawing upon the peaceful sanctuary of this season.
      • Shift burdens by doing something about them (e.g. make your will) or by giving up unnecessary patterns.
        • Remember your Ancestors and celebrate their wisdom.
          • In this deep season of darkness and introspection, seek the sun at midnight, the rich treasures that lie in the lap of Winter.
            • Be aware of the Ancestral Teachers, the grandparents and elders of the spiritual traditions, whose footsteps have kept the pathways open.
              • Cut back old growth in the garden and burn or compost it. Dig over the soil in preparation for the Spring.
                • Walk and meditate outdoors for at least ten minutes daily.
                  • Identify the nature of the soil and rock-forms in your locality and how this affects the life-forms who live upon the land.
                    • Be active, with like-minded others, in recording, preserving, living and learning about the ancient wisdom of indigenous peoples, especially those in your own land.
                      • As you travel through the land of Winter, relate your spiritual journey to the wisdom of this season.
