Samhain is always so festive BEFORE the big day. It's understandable. The weather finally turns (depending on where you are), the days are filled with activities and the excitement builds.

I NEED HELP i am being haunted it feel pure evil can any one help please
I'm putting the intention out to find an officiant who is rooted in ancestral work or Indigenous traditions/spirituality. My beloved is a NA two spirit and I am a shamanic healer, it is important to us to have our wedding officiated by someone who can help us honor the day with an appropriate ceremony. I hope you're all having a blessed and sweet day! Aho', Blessed Be, Namaste'
Are there any couples looking for likeminded friends out here in Lafayette?
If any readers are interested in a booth at the SunMoon Spiritual & Healing Fair, please DM your email address to me.
Great people no tension all levels of conversation. Respectful.
Was good to see you Wednesday. I'll be there next time.
Anyone in here on the shamanistic path?
Any shamanistic people in this group?
Hello. I am not sure this is the place, but maybe someone can direct me. I'm an intuitive looking for a place or way to offer my services. I do many things, have even taught, but my favorite is writing intuitive letters to clients. At the simplest, suggestions would be helpful. At the best, I'd like space in a shop to have presence for a couple of hours weekly. I live in Livonia, a small space between Opelousas and Baton Rouge. Thank you for your assistance, even for taking the time with this post.
