Samhain Remembrance Ritual

Traditionally, Samhain is the most magical time of the year. Samhain predates the Roman feast of the Dead, Lemuria, and All Hallow's Eve - the eve of the Christian holiday to honor the saints, All Saint's Day. The secular holiday today is known as Halloween. All of these festivals, though called by different names, are celebration of the awe, communication with, and respect of the dead.

It is a time when the veil that separates us from the Other World is at its thinnest. It is a time to celebrate Past, Present and Future.

The Samahain Remembrance Ritual was written for use on this special day. You may want to use it to honor loved ones who have passed away, or to celebrate the union of past, present and future.


Ritual Stones $19.99

Includes: Crystal, Turquoise, Moonstone, 3 Carnelian, Citrine and a black organza bag


The items you will need are:

  • The Bag of Samhain Gemstones:
    • Crystal for light
    • Turquoise for infinity
    • Carnelian (3) for life and form - past, present, future
    • Citrine for the golden ray of sun
    • Moonstone for the light of the moon
  • A glass with a little red wine or juice
  • A plate of simple food (bread, fruit)
  • One black candle and matches

Do this ritual on October 31. Bathe before the ritual and wear clean clothes. Ensure that you cleanse the stones of all unwanted energies.

Prepare your altar:
Put all the items on your clean altar. Put the black candle in a brass or silver candle holder, have the matches close by. Place the candle in the center of the altar. Arrange the stones in a circle around the candle. Place the wine and plate of food to the right outside the circle of stones.

You may place photos of loved ones who have passed away on the altar if you want to honor them in this ritual. Flowers, greenery or a small pumpkin can also be used to give a festive feeling to your altar.

When everything is arranged take a moment of silence to ready yourself. Light your candle and while doing so, ask for Blessings from your favorite Celtic God or Goddess:

"Goddess, I ask for your blessings,

Lift shadows dark; remove the veil
that distance separates no more
and loved ones hear our whispered hail
beyond the daylight's opened door

Now pick up the crystal stone and pass it over the fire, saying:

Reveal the mystery; sight unblind
what once was lost we now shall find
in purity of heart we ask
for meeting in our joyous task

Place the crystal back on the altar. Next, pass the turquoise over the fire, saying:

The daylight's heaven domed azure
brings comfort warmth and solace sure
but in its raiment blue we see
the measure of infinity

Place the turquoise back on the altar.

Next pass each piece of carnelian (one by one) over the fire. Sipping from your glass of wine or juice, make a toast to the past, present and future souls with each carnelian.

Make a toast to the souls who have passed with the first piece ofcarnelian by saying:

What once upon the seas was cast
submerges to the shadowed past
but drinking from the cup explains
that all that was, now still remains!

Toast the souls of the present with the second carnelian, saying:

In life is change and spirits grow
what once was sown now learns to sow
our eyes shall wonder; voices cherish
hands may build what cannot perish!

Make a toast to those yet unborn with the third carnelian, saying:

What's been before remains unbending
while life unfurling toils unending
perfection is a song unsung
the hope remains what's yet to come!

Now pick up the citrine, and pass it over the fire, saying:

In golden warmth we touch the sun
a wealth unearthly makes us one
let earth and fire join our flow
united now within the glow!

Next pick up the moonstone, and pass it over the fire, saying:

Our sister moon presents reflection,
on mysteries hidden to inspection
A vantage to the world unseen
Her gift a mirror in between!

Allow the candle to safely burn down during the night. The following morning, the food and drink can be returned to the earth as an offering to the God or Goddess. As you do so, say:

I make this offering to (Goddess name)
For blessings, guidance and protection
now and forevermore.

Keep your Samhain gemstones in a place of honor where they will be undisturbed. Use them again next year, but be sure to clean them of energies before the next ritual use.
