Today is Remember Me Thursday, a special day to honour the millions of orphaned pets needing a forever home...

heart candleHave you ever lit a candle in remembrance of someone special to you? I light candles in remembrance of people and pets that have died. They were important to me when they were alive and they continue to live in the eternal flame of my heart. It may sound corny but in truth, the lighting of the candle allows me to feel closer to them, and the twinge of pain in missing them, reminds me of the wonderful relationships we had. Their physical presence is complete but the memory of their lives on, and a new relationship is present in the moment.


Collectively, the lighting of a candle by many brings people together for a common cause. We see it in social media and television in vigils, quiet protests, in ceremonies, in churches. Annually, on this day each year, (the third Thursday of September) worldwide, within 138 countries and counting, people light candles, whether literal or virtual, honouring the millions of orphaned pets needing a forever home. This ceremony's purpose is to draw attention to those animals which are euthanized. So I extend an invitation to check out the 'Remember Me Thursday' website on how you can get involved in your own way.

Today, September 24th, I will be lighting my candles and giving a more heart-felt cuddle to my adopted dog and cat in honour of all the pets I have had the privilege of receiving their unconditional love. My family and our home would not be as rich without our Winnie and Cotton Socks!


And perhaps this will also encourage you to light a candle in your heart to adopt an orphan pet!

I look forward to connecting with you in our circle on October 3 when we will be Celebrating our Animal Friends with sacred ceremony. I hope you can join us.

With Blessings, Reana

Beltane Ceremony with the River of Life

Bealtaine is a potent portal where the sacred masculine energy of doing begins to light up, and join into the sacred feminine energy of being. This ceremony is a wonderful way for you to reflect on how things have been, and begin to envision how you would like them to become.

Offerings as Sacred Reciprocity

People are often curious about why I always ask them to bring "offerings" to circles or sessions.  This is a really great question! In fact all questions are good because although it is important to have an open heart and be present in a ceremony or practice, it is equally as important to know why we are doing something and where it comes from.

The Fire and Water of Beltaine

Today is May Day, or the Celtic Fire festival of Beltaine, known in Ireland as Bealtaine or in Scotland as Bealtuinn. It is thought that this celebration was named after the old Celtic sun god, Belenos, or Bel, which means shining, while "tine" translates as fire.
