Halloween is more than just pumpkins and costumes - it's an opportunity to connect with your intuition, get in touch with the magic that surrounds us daily - but of which we're often unaware - and spend time reflecting on people who have left us, either physically or through the ending of a relationship. Historically, Halloween is a time to celebrate the "lifting of the veil." The boundaries between our everyday world
, and the supernatural world, are thinner, and we are able to see into the future, into the unknown, and connect with the other side.
If you'd like to explore this side of Halloween further, check out our free Lifting the Veil activity
, which includes two free printables
: an activity guide to experience "lifting the veil" with a friend or a group
, and an individual activity guide and reflection notebook
Halloween is also, traditionally, a time when we share and celebrate stories of the dead. I have given three interpretations on how we can think about "stories of the dead" beyond memories of those who have passed on, and you can find those here.
These 30 Journal Prompts give you a provocative and intriguing, yet simple question to write about each day of the month for October, and can be used throughout October, and/or as a way to create your own Halloween ritual, as the activity for a Halloween party, or a practice to share with friends around the holiday.
I've organized them into clusters based on topic. That way you can easily find the types of prompts that resonate with you the most. While it can sometimes be hard to know what to journal about, these journaling prompts should make it easy and fun to build a reflective practice that supports your intuition and clarity this Halloween.
