The Day of the Dead, or Dia De Los Muertos, is a 2-day holiday that brings the living and the dead together again.

It occurs when the veil between the worlds (the spirit world and the physical world) is at its thinnest. More on the veil, what that means, and how you can work with it in a future post.

The Day of the Dead is a celebration, not a day of mourning. 

It’s an acknowledgement of the cycles of life and death. And a time to remember those who have passed with love, laughter, and joy. 

3 ways to honor the Day of the Dead

1. Meditate to connect with ancestors and the spirits of those who have crossed over. Ask them any guidance or advice you feel you need.

2. Create an ancestral altar to honor your loved ones. Light a candle and sit quietly with their energy. Let it envelop, comfort, and fill you with love.  

3. When you have dinner tonight, put out an extra place with food for a deceased friend or family member. Tell stories around the table about your time together.
