I love Hallowe’en.
I love the costumes and the chocolate treats.
I love scary jack o’ lanterns and ghostly haunts.
But as adults, are we really getting the true meaning of this day?
What better way to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve than to share with you a trick of the words that will offer you a treat of the mind. I am offering you my fear-busting worksheet today so you can fight the ghosts and ghouls that haunt you.
Today I want you to think about what really scares you and invite it in for the long winter ahead – or at least a warm cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows. I am going to share with you a new tool – a path to invite in what scares you so that you can face your demons and live this Hallowe’en without fear.
Let’s start with some history of Hallowe’en, back from its pagan roots and before it was merged into Allhallowtide with All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.
Originally Hallowe’en was called Samhain and it marked the end of harvest. This was a time to take stock of what you had grown on your farm and if you would make it through the cold winter before the food started to grow again in Spring. That seems a little scary to me – one never knows how long Winter will be!
With this metaphor in mind . . . and my worksheet in hand . . . take stock of what you have harvested this year and then think about what scares you about moving forward into the new year.
Thinking about what scares you as the ghosts and ghouls of Hallowe’en . . . they are ready to take flight but first, you must invite them in, sit down with them and have a chat over a warm beverage before they can soar away. Do this by asking yourself some questions and journaling away the ghosts and ghouls of your fears.
Every time I start to feel anxious and stressed out, I know that I am thinking a certain horror story. Sometimes I am aware of the plot but sometimes I am only aware of the scary monsters. This is when we have to invite the fear in, spend some time with it and then release it out into the night’s cold air before we can really be free of it. We have to learn the plot of the horror story before we can escape the scary monsters of our brains.

Once you have invited the ghosts and ghouls in and spent time with them, you will see that they are more like friendly spirits here to guide you than horrible monsters wanting to distract you with terrifying scary stories of failure and disaster. Invite the scary thoughts in so you can chase them away with the light of your journal.
