Halloween is a time when we become more receptive to "ghoulies and ghosties, and long-leggedy beasties, and things that go bump in the night!" Pagan traditions view this as a time when the veil between the worlds is thin, meaning that the membrane between life and death is more permeable, and therefore the living and the dead can communicate with each other more easily. In other words, this time brings us closer to life-and-death areas of life, literally and metaphorically. As such, it is a fertile breeding ground for the imagination and emotions like hope, fear and feelings we don't have a name for.

During this time, you have the opportunity to reflect on what lurks in your deep thoughts and feelings. These can emerge unexpectedly, especially in a situation that is ambiguous and where the boundaries are unknown. Although this might be a bit unnerving, it is an excellent time to reflect on your imagination, dreams, thoughts, feelings and emotions, since you have an unusually clear view of what resides in your subconscious mind.

An especially good way to explore this realm is to write in a journal; or drawing whatever comes into your mind. This allows you to express your awareness, uncensored, onto a piece of paper or computer word processor. Then you can go back and read it afterwards and see what you see in it. It might reveal something about yourself that you hadn't realized, yet it had been camouflaged in the back of your mind the whole time. Or it might give you insight into a relationship you have, or something about life itself. The idea is to interpret it like a dream, more as a fluid metaphor, rather than just taking it at face value.

This is a time to count your blessings! Doing this can be a very healing exercise. Right now tends to be a high stress time for everyone for many reasons, so it might be difficult to even feel like you have blessings to count. When your stressed your survival instinct kicks in and it's easy to see only the stuff that seems to threaten your peace of mind. In the midst of all those alarm bells, it can be easier to just focus on the stuff that's freaking you out, and blocking out everything else from your awareness. Naturally, this only makes the stress worse, even if your survival instincts feel like they're protecting you.

However, wisdom is what will get you through this time in one piece. And wisdom needs balance in order to navigate through this uneven ground. Without balance, your mind is much more likely to flail around in circles and keep you from making progress. How do you find balance? By counting your blessings, of course!

In other words, for every fear, every alarm, every discouragement, every anxiety, every pessimistic thought and every moment of chaotic confusion you might have, you need to remind yourself that there is more to your life than this. Sit down and make a list of all the things in your life and in the world around you that you feel good about, that show you hope or that give you pleasure. It doesn't matter if they seem silly or trivial or meaningless or miniscule – do it anyway. If you don't want to write down a list, do it some other way – sing a song, dance it out, count them up or tell someone about them. When you come across a blessing, say "Thank you. I see you" (even if it's just in your own head). Everything and everyone just want to be acknowledged and appreciated. That's your homework.
