These days, it seems like Halloween is only about three things: eating candy, dressing in a costume, and doing things to scare ourselves on purpose. And that is what Halloween is about — but the day is also based on some ancient traditions and rituals that are important to consider as well. Halloween is based on Samhain, a traditional Pagan holiday that is considered the most sacred day of the year to Pagans. Because of the history surrounding Halloween, this is the perfect time to use crystals to reflect your moods, feelings, and desires... and maybe even to offer protection. There are a few crystals for Halloween that will help you tap into all of that spooky energy.
According to Healing Crystals, Samhain is "a time of endings and beginnings that is naturally tied to the Earth's cycle when the dark and cold of winter approaches and nature 'dies,' only to be reborn in the spring." It's basically a celebration of life and death, and is a time to remember those who have died. Many believe Halloween night is the night when the there is a link between the living and the dead. Certain crystals will help you safely contact and connect with those who have died, as well as protect you from any negative energy in the air.
So, this year, don't just get dressed up and hunt for candy... do some rituals with your crystals and connect with the energy from the holiday. Oh, and definitely have a spooky night as well!
