Divination Games for Halloween Parties and Samhain Rituals

By

Holistic Shopping: If you enjoy hosting Halloween parties or are a pagan who celebrates Samhain you'll want to have some divination tools on hand to enhance your experience. October 31st is the one day of year when it is believed that the veil between the physical and spiritual world is at its thinnest, making spiritual communications the easiest.

Divination is the art of communicating with spiritual entities which include personal spirit guides, angels, the Ascended Masters, your higher self and deceased relatives. Divination tools help to awaken our senses to life beyond the physical.

Crystal Balls for Gazing

Have you ever tried Crystal Gazing? Fortune tellers of the past (and today) were typically portrayed wearing Gypsy costumes while gazing downwards into a crystal ball. Crystal balls can be used for gazing but they can also be held in your hands during meditation or channeling sessions. Crystal balls are sculpted out of many different gemstones including clear quartz crystal, rose quartz, amethyst, and fluorite. If you are planning to host a seance you'll definitely want a crystal ball for your table.

Bowls filled with water, glass mirrors, and other shiny surfaces that catch light are used as scrying tools for intuiting spiritual messages. Scrying involves peering into the reflection on the water or glass for messages via imagery.

Candle Flame Gazing

Gazing at a flickering candle flame is a nifty way to invoke spirit communications. Spirits love to dance their way into a darkened room on a candle wick. If you've never tried candle gazing, you're in for a treat. You set your eyes on the flame and allow your focus to blur a bit and see what images begin to appear before you. The shapes and symbols are messages for you. There are plenty of Halloween design candles to choose from if you are hosting a party. This silver and black candle depicting skulls is cool and actually kind of spooky.
