Reaching into Darkness

Welcome to All Hallow’s Grim 2013… So Good, So Dark. From October 13th to October 21st, Pagan Culture will take a step (or three) towards the other side of the veil, and focus on the delicious goodness that blooms in the dark.

I’m inviting you to walk with me into the arms of the uncanny. Let’s use our art of choice (or the art that chose us) to show each other and the world how we understand the darkness, commune with its secrets, make it part of our lives, and love it as much as we love the light… For without one, the other can’t be seen.

When the idea for this celebration first touched my heart, I was convinced that the best way to explore the darkness was by writing, reading and talking about it. But I was wrong—words are my way. The examination of something as abstract as the dark requires a more fluid and individual approach; it calls for personal art.

The journey starts with Eliora’s piece, “Reach Through the Darkness to Those You Love.”
This ritual chest contains four 4-hour white candles, ancestor candle dressing oil (Amaranth, Cinnamon, Mugwort and Wormwood), a photo frame and a vintage embellished brass candlestick. Eliora and I agree on the fact that the best ritual is the one that emanates from our own hearts. However, sometimes we need a little push, so the chest comes with suggestions for those who wish to use them. The following words are included:

“With this Light, I call to you
I hold your memory dear.
With this Light I honor you
You’re not forgotten, here.”

These are gentle, powerful words; breathed by a living heart, and sent towards the soul of a loved one who is no longer with us. I feel that this ritual, when done with love and respect, kisses darkness deeply and brings light.

  1. I really, really want to win this one. Every year I've set out some tea and coffee for my grandparents. I can't say that I knew them especially well, but I did want to honor their memory. This year a glass of birch beer joins the party, in honor of a dear friend who I loved like a brother who passed away just last week. I've never done more than that for Samhain, but even before my friend's death I've been thinking about really working with my ancestors more; getting to know them and going deeper in that direction. I can't say I have any strong skills with working with the dead, but having some tools on hand might make it much easier for me to bridge my skill gap.

    LOL, as always I want an item not pictured on Eliora's site, a stained glass plaque made to my specifications (though the incense set is very adorable). And I'm pretty sure I'm a follower of this blog.

  3. THAT chest is gorgeous! as well as the contents...reminds me of what my grandparents would have had way back when we weren't even a thought... Grandpa was born 1898 so definitely back in that era.. I have a cabinet that not only holds my Waterford wine glasses but mementos of my Grandparents... My Grandmother's wicker sewing basket w/ pinking shears that are still sharp... My Grandpa's gold watch as well as his Notre Dame pins... As far as ritual, I pull out those items every now and then and can picture them back when I was little....I kept my Grandfather's log of who he borrowed money from to pay for his college tuition- they both left written pieces which tells more about them than I never knew...

  4. What a wonderful, thoughtful giveaway. Eliora makes beautiful things, my other favorites being the painted glass 'Raven' frame and the stackable Samhain boxes.

    I always think about and remember my best friend extra through the Halloween holiday. She too loved the season, it was something I could only share with her for several years. She had a bit of witch in her for sure, her apartment always looked Halloweenie and was full of pretty and interesting little trinkets. I lost her to cancer 6 years ago, when she was the age I am now. I know I will never find anyone like her again.

  6. I know I can't win this amazing prize(non US) But I love all the gorgeous, lovingly crafted items Eliora sells. My fave at the moment is Warrior Faerie of the Woodland wand :D
    I would use a chest like this in my memorial rituals at Samhain and November 11th. At Samhain I have always followed the practice of setting an extra plate and glass of wine to welcome "travellers" between worlds.
    Looking forward to being part of this fantastic celebration :D XXX

  7. This box is absolutely gorgeous! We do focus on honoring our Ancestors as this time of year - we've been fortunate enough to be able to gather with others for Samhain, and will be this year. There will be a Dumb Supper for the Ancestors, and the Morrigan will be honored in ritual. We're also getting together to do a graveyard clean up the week before. At home, we've been working on putting together an Ancestor shrine - photos and personal trinkets and the like. Eliora's kit would be a perfect addition and lovely way to consecrate it.

    As for my favorites at her shop - ALL OF THEM! ALWAYS! lol. But today I'm drawn to the Black & Amethyst Faerie Earcuff, the Copper & Glass Black Snake Pendant, and the Woodland Jade and Oak Wand.

    :) You know I follow Pagan Culture, avidly and with great pleasure!

  8. I really want to win this! Each year for Samhain I create a "Fallen Leaves" altar. I place a garland of Autumn leaves around my altar and attach a picture of each of my dear departed family and friends to a leaf. A candle is lit at the center of the altar on Samhain Eve and remains lit through the day after Samhain. This altar is in my dining room so it becomes part of our Ancestor Meal on Samhain as well. I would incorporate the items from Eliora into our yearly Samhain celebration, using them as part of our Fallen leaves altar and our Ancestor Meal. The item I must also have from Eliora is a specially-made for this gardening witch boline. I've been dreaming of one for a while now. Perhaps this will be my birthday gift to myself! Blessings to all!

  9. I have set up a small altar every year to honor the ancestors. When my husband and I got married, I included a photo of his parents, who had been deceased since the late 90's. Last year, my mother passed on October 19 and her photo was added to the altar. I didn't do anything extra at that time, because I was busy worrying and looking after my father, who was widowed after 48 years. My father followed my mother on March 19 of this year, 5 months to the day of her passing. This year, I mourning them both. Eliora's box would help me to establish a new ritual...a new tradition...to honor my mom and dad and treasure their memories.

  11. Wow. What an absolutely amazing chest!

    1.) I have yet to experience a Samhain ritual and plan on this year being the first which I will do with my daughter. I've lost my father, husband, and grandfather and I think it's important for her to understand that in some way they are still around. Having this chest would be amazing and allow me to perform the ritual with no excuses.

    2.) As far as an item from Elliora's shop. So hard to pick one. But let me tell you what happened. I looked at the first page and fell in love with the athames... before i clicked page two, i thought 'I wonder if she has Athena or Artemis'. The first item on the next page was the 6.5" Artemis Athame. Gorgeous and perfect.

  12. I would love to have this. I normally set a picture of then in a special place. I burn a candle and say a prayer hopefully heard ny them. I have been through a lot of very close losses in the past two years (lost my father and also my father in law) the way this would help me is by having everything I need in one place that could be special just for them. I have a large heart and have been taken advantage of so many times that I really never get anything for myself any longer do this would be special.
    ***if I could get anything from eliora's shop it would be either the hecate charm clip or the charm bracelet. Both are beautiful... love moonstones! I have always been drawn to them and this would be something I could carry or wear that cannot be taken from me. Also I could never be able to purchase the bracelet for myself because I would feel guilty that I spent the money on myself rather than my children or bills.

  13. 1.) I have never done anything to honor the dead in a physical sense, I have always done it mentally in my head, but I think I may start a new tradition of doing so in a physical sense this year.

  16. Whenever I am struggling whether its with school work or just life I ask my great grandma for help or guidance. I usually talk to her when I am feeling sad or just what to talk things out and tell her everything that has been going on in my life. With this chest I would be able to set up a physical space for me to honor my great grandma, my uncle and grandpa and its something I would be able to look at and remember them but also remember the fun times we all had and all the help they gave me when I needed it.
    If I could get anything from your shop it would either have to be a complete altar set or the Apollo athame. Everything in your shop is beautiful.

  17. Magaly, I have referred my readers your main page to find a list of other party goers. Could you put that list in your sidebar to make it easier to find?

    But, I also LOVE this giveaway....

    So...

    Yes, I celebrate my ancestors; they are a huge part of my life. My altar is set up prior to October and includes homage to the ancestors. As the month goes on, it builds until Nov 1, 2 and 3... where ancestor photos come out and all the candles are lit.

    It years past, we make offerings or have a supper for them. Every year it is different! This year is a bit more private than years past. I am working on an ancestor collage instead of individual photos... something that can be put out every year.

    I am not big in to jewelry except when I get my gowns and pumps out... I love the labyrinth, raven bottle and the ritual kits (especially the trunks!!).

    Thank you Eloria and Magaly!!!!

    LOVE, Mario

    2. Hey Mario and Ms Misantropia, I'm adding links to the direct party entries as people post them in the comments of the main announcement. For a list of all the partiers, please go to the main post.

      I used to add all the home links, but noticed that many people couldn't post, forgot to post, or never made it to the party, and would fail to tell me about it. So now I add the direct links as they come in, and if at the end of the party a person (or five) forgot to publish anything for the party, I just delete their link and no harm done.

      Does that make sense?

  18. We always have a bon fire, we reminisce and invite our loved ones to join us. Of course we have food, family & friends of a like mind and we spend our time reliving, laughing and remembering our precious departed ones. This box would be present in our traditional acts, a fire every night for the days around All Hallows. The herbs I'm not sure, but I save all my fresh flowers through the year, and put them on the fire through out the night. I can see this as our "Samhain" box for years to come:)

  22. On my father's birthday (October 21st), I light a candle and talk to him. He doesn't answer me back, but it's important that I remember him. I've never conducted an actual ritual persay, because I have been somewhat scared of what might be brought up. Luckily I've been through a lot of therapy, so Samhain may be a good first attempt for me. I think I'm ready, but you're right, I think I needed a bit of a push.

  25. Do you honor your departed loved ones in a special way during All Hallow’s Eve, Halloween, El Dia de los Muertos, Samhain…? Yes.
    Why or why not? Because I believe our departed loved ones are no so departed and deserve to be recognized and loved just as if they were still here on this plane with us physically.
    If the answer is yes, then how might Eliora’s ritual chest add to the experience?
    Well this is my first year i finally get to celebrate it and I don't really have much to celebrate with, I think this would be so awesome to help me on my first celebration.
    For Extra Entries – Worth one entry each
    2. If you could get any other item from Eliora’s shop, which would it be and why?

Usually I will make a special meal with food that I know is their favorite. Sometimes I feel them there, sometimes not.

  27. This time of year always touches my heart. Not just for my past over loves but for all the souls of the dead who don't have people to reach out to them, and let them know someone is here for them. I always make sure i make a feast and feed my animals first that evening and then leave a platter outside for the spirits. Along with the platter i leave candles out side and small offerings like different pieces of cloth, small stones and crystals, feathers, flowers, and few other things like pictures of today's enviroment, and history, And small cups of juice and wine. If i won the chest of the contest I would be honored to do a special ritual with these items honoring my step dad who just passed away in september along with my beloved scorpion Osiris who just passed away in the begining of october. If i didnt win then my blessings go out to the winner and there loved ones.
    2. If i could win any other item from youre shop id like to win a wand, or an athamae. Those are two things i have yet to find. Yes ive seen alot of wands and athamaes but i havent yet feel drawn to.

  28. I lost my daughter when she was 10 to cancer. I start Hallow's eve by making a beef stew that she loved with sweet potatoes , butternut squash and other vegtables of the season. She so loved it. I have just passed my 366 days of learning. This Hallow's eve is my first as Wiccan. Wiccan is always something that had my intrest, just now started practicing. I dress up every year as my daughter and i always did. I look at old family photos telling stories. What a nice way to remember family( both 2 legged and 4 legged). This year I will be going to my friend/teacher house. Dinner and a small celebration with her and her boys. than we will go outside do our own celebration. telling our stories to each other about our gone loved ones. you asked what i would buy, if I had to choose only one thing it would be the Isis Char Clip for purse, but I dont always use a burse so it would go on my keys, they are always with me.

  34. This year will be my first physical celebration of Samhain. My grandfather passed five years ago around this time. Since then I've always remembered him in my own little ways. He's always helped me carry on and make decisions in my life. With or without physical things, I've always felt a strong connection to him. )O(

    I really love your collection of athames. I've been wanting to get one for a long time. The Artemis Athame, in particular, is beautiful. I really love how you bring everything together in your work.

Samhain is the biggest Sabbat that we celebrate - we have a HUGE party (all in fancy dress) and have ritual very late.... everyone brings a photo to remember their loved ones while the veil is thinnest. an emotional time - and a happy one to be close to your departed again Because we live in New Zealand now, this is celebrated April 30th - yes it sucks to see all the Samhain posts now - when we are getting ready for Beltane)
    2. Eliora's shop is full of yummy bits - but I have a deep love of bottles and boxes - so the elemental bottle was the thing that caught my eye most and I kept going back to.......

Being that I've lost seven friends, one being my bff, and MANY beloved family members, its my favorite time of year. This beautiful chest will only enhance the probability of my messages getting threw. I have many. If i could have anything from the shop, it would be the bats in flight altar jars. Have a wonderful Samhain everyone.

The ritual chest would be provide a great opportunity to expand of our current tradition and connect with our ancestors through the veil and wish them well on their journey to their next life, or ask them to provide us with enlightenment in this life. My daughter's turning 4 and starting to really pick up on our beliefs and shes becoming more of an active participant in our rituals, this would be one ritual and tradition she could be more active in [anointing the candles, helping to set up the ritual, saying the incantation, etc.] larmstrong0216(at)gmail(dot)com

  40. oh and i forgot, if i was to get anything from the shop it would be the glass artwork that says "As Above, So Below." I believe strongly that our spirit is intertwined with the divine and as they are we too should be, and what we feel and know on the inside, so we should demonstrate on the outside: as above, so below; as within, so without. :) again, larmstrong0216(at)gmail(dot)com

  41. 1- I do have a special way to honor and remember my loved ones who have passed on: On top of my piano, that belonged to my Grandparents, I keep a year-long shrine of their photos. At Samhain, I add lighted candles and trinkets that remind me of each one. The ceremony is very personal to me.

    My mother passed away earlier this year, so this will be the first time that she will be included. I want to reach out to her especially, and I think this chest will add a special touch and a potency to my intent.

    2- If I could have another item from Eliora's shop it would be the Owl's Vigil Altar Jar Set. My family has a very strong affinity with the Owl. I would love to add this beautiful set to my Ancestor Altar.

    3- I am subscribed to Pagan Culture on GFC.

  42. I do honor my passed loved ones each year. I light rememberance candles and leave out sweet cakes and spiced tea. I also send blessings and this is the first year I am teaching my daughter how to do so as well.

    When it comes to something from Eloria's page I would be hard pressed to choose. She has so many nice things that would be lovely and or useful to me. So I would have to say I would be beyond pleased to be gifted about anything from her.

  47. I would really love to win this because I feel it will help me focus my thoughts when I am honoring my lost ones. I don't have much of my own being a single mother of a 4 year old, on an very fixed income and this is an extremely generous gift that could really help me get closer to the son I lost in 2007. If I could add one item I think it would be some sort of an alter or some stones : tigers eye, quartz ect.... On Old Hallows Eve I talk to him a lot, how much I enjoyed carrying him, how awful it was to lose him, who I think he'd be today, how much he is loved, and how he will never be forgotten. If you choose me I will be eternally grateful. Blessed be

  48. 1. I usually think of my departed loved ones just about every day. I know their spirits are with me and always around me as long as I keep them in mind. I usually just light a candle once in a while, but winning this kit would really make it more meaningful, with having a more dedicated ceremony to remember them by.

    2. If I could get ANY other item? Definitely the Complete Altar Set / Collection - Custom Crafted to your Specifications! Why? Because I don't have an alter set up yet, and it would be PERFECT!!!

    I most definitely do honor my departed loved loves on Dia de los Muertes. We go to their gravesite and clean it. In the case of my grandfather and uncle, we give them some beers to drink. LOL (honoring as they lived) Cousin and Grandmother gets sweets as this is what they most cherished in this life. We also provide a meal so that they can recall what we lived when they were present physically.

    Eliora ritual chest would enable us to have greater access to their presence.

  53. I celebrate my ancestors not on the night of the 31st of October but the following night which for me is Winters Night, start of the winter season and full of remembrance of ancestors both those I have know in this life and those who existed long before me. It's a special time period for me that lasts from the 1st of November till the 11th so it coincides with our national Remembrance Day which for me is about remember those from the past who have served the country especially those in my own family. We remember as a family at this time by visiting the grave yards, laying flowers and just generally talking about those who are no longer part of this life.

    On a more personal level as part of my beliefs I celebrate my ancestors all year round and I do have a box similar to the lovely one Eliora is offering as a gift, mine is an old sewing box that's been passed down. It's fulled with moments of those who were dear to me, photos and keepsakes etc. It also has books in which I write letters to my ancestors in, just chatting about day to day things normally. I have one for all my ancestors and one alone for my mum. It's my way of keeping a connection. I think such a box or altar does help with the experience of connecting with your ancestors, when you open it then it's like setting time aside to visit with those who have departed as you would those you love in life. Also it's not always possible to visit the final resting place of those gone for various reasons, even if that place is known, so it's nice to have a recognized meeting place that is accessible to both sides.

    I love so many things in Eliora's Esty shop but my favourite is the Raven spell bottle.

    I'm already happily one of your wicked followers Magaly my dear.

  65. Every year on 2 Holidays. I light a candle for people who have passed. 1 for Halloween because it was my Grandfathers favorite holiday next to St Patrick's Day.He was Irish Catholic. But still kept a few of his family's pagan traditions alive.Like making messes on St Patty and blaming the Leprechauns, who would leave green hand foot prints all over the house. But as we would clean the tiny messes or big messes. We would find gold coins. Ok they were chocolate.If some thing went missing he would say. Those dog gone fairies! They did it again! See what happens when you don't put stuff where they belong?He'd decorate for Halloween to. He was so much fun. My grandmother was German Russian Orthodox Catholic.But she as my mother was a healer.Christmas was her biggest thing. She would make things for family and friends. Even shutouts. My grandparents died with in 2 weeks of each other.My mother this year. I was never close to my mom. But I hope and Pray she has crossed over and has found Opa and Oma and forgiveness.Since over the last 6 yrs we /my husband and I have lost family on his side .His only brother left of 2 just this Aug. There were 4children now 2.Now with his only sister left. She has cancer.This would be awesome for both of us to Honer his family and mine.Blessed Be.

We honor them daily by listening to their voices as they guide us when we need their counsel. This would be a lovely formal way for us to have a place to honor them; whether it be inside or out in the field or woods; everything we'd need would be in the chest.

It's been 15 years for me and 4 for him. Although we try to honor them throughout the year, this Samhain will be the first year we do it publicly. You see, we have been blessed with a beautiful son and we want to share him with my dad and my partner's dad. We want our son to know his grandpas. So, this year will be the start of an annual tradition of honoring his grandpas.

    This Ritual Chest will add to the experience by allowing us to use gifted materials instead of bought. Gifted materials have better energy associated with them.

Eliora's creations have such a beautiful energy to them and I think the chest would add a beautiful oomph to honoring the dead.

    I don't think I can pick ONE thing from her shop lol. I already have the Witch's Amulet (Sticks and Stones) and it's amazing. But I would love to add the Witchy Elegance Charm Bracelet to my growing bracelet collection. It's gorgeous.

  101. I've been lucky to not have lost any loved ones so far, so I haven't. But this chest is awesome and has my name written all over it. It's so me!

  103. Wow! What a beautiful chest!
    I do honor my dead loved ones and those who have gone before, all across October 31-Nov 2 for Hallowe'en, Samhain, and Dia de los Muertos (although I really honor the dead all year round as my patron deities are Hel and Odin, and I work with Persephone/Proserpina, Nut, Freyja, Lilith, and Valkyries, etc.). For Halloween I set up altars to the dead for the three days, do ritual, and participate in traditional American Halloween festivities (wearing costume, carving pumpkins, apple games, etc); for Samhain I do ritual, slightly more somber, communicate with the dead, and celebrate simply, leave offerings, I do the dumb supper as well; for Dia de los Muertos I wear a painted face all day, make sugar skulls or sugar skull crafts, and do a closing ritual for the three day celebration. I would LOVE to be able to use Eliora's ritual chest to contact my loved ones and honor them over the Holiday. Everything in the kit is beautiful, and even if I do not win, I think I will adopt use of the words she wrote--they say just what needs to be said for a short honoring. <3

    I will leave two more comments for following and the item from Eliora's store. :)
