May 1st, May Day is also known as Beltane. Beltane marks the end of the long winter - the dark part of the year that honours death - and the beginning of the spring planting season - the light part of the year that honours life. Celtic peoples mark the occasion by sharing in rituals that celebrate fertility and bestow blessings for an abundant harvest. They dance (May Pole anyone?), light massive bonfires (called Bel Fires) and sensuously snuggle up real close to their lovers (the fertility part!).
Beltane is also one of the points in our year when the veil between our physical world and the spirit realm thins (Samhain, November 1st being the other one). When the veils thin it is a truly magical time of intermingling of the two worlds - and magic can - and does - happen. The spirits - earth, fairy, elementals - return from their time of winter rest. Beltane is best greeted with an attitude of childlike joy, excitement and wonder. Seeing Beltane through the eyes of a child is sure to thrill and bring all manner of wonderful delights including fairy sightings!
This potential for magic makes Beltane a great time for everyone and particularly wonderful for psychic mediums. The ability to connect with spirits in heightened to the point that it can become almost effortless. This is why Beltane is also a good time for those developing their mediumistic gifts to tune in to see what they might get. But it is not a good time only for those who are highly intuitive. It can be enjoyed and employed by everyone who want to do so, to uplift their spring season, bless their next six month period and open up to the love that is all around them!
Here are my suggestions for how to make your Beltane the very best ever!
There you go. Lots to do for a wonderful Beltane!
