All Hallows’ Day, or All Saint’s Day is a feast day of the highest rank according to most churches in which all the saints are honored. That “Day,” on our calendar, is on the first of November. So, November 1st (11/1, or 111) is always All Saint’s Day, but the day of the week it falls on changes. This year it will be celebrated on Tuesday.
I digress here, but I was just thinking about the order of days revolving around All Saint’s Day when I was growing up. October 30th was Mischief Night, October 31st was Halloween, and All Saint’s Day was on November 1st, but for some reason, no one ever seemed to mention or make a big deal out of the day on 11/1. Maybe it’s because people don’t like mentioning or talking about the dead. IDK, but a little while ago I thought about this: What if at one time Mischief Night, in some weird or twisted society was about sacrificing the martyrs? It would make sense in the order according to days. Mischief Night would be sacrificing the martyrs, Halloween would be about dressing up as ghouls and ghosts to imitate the dead, and All Saint’s Day would be about honoring and remembering them.
Anyway, what I really wanted to talk about here was the saints themselves. If you look at the pictures of saints, you’ll notice that disc or halo around their heads. That halo was drawn on purpose to reveal that persons closeness with God.
Yes, that’s true, and in a subtle way, it was reinforced in the Celestine Prophecy, a movie by James Redfield. It has been said, time and time again, we live in a modern world that’s designed to try to prevent men and women from connecting to source because without divine guidance, were lost and have to rely on man’s system. But, I would like for those who celebrate All Saint’s Day to keep something in mind, while we celebrate the saints of our past and ancient history, there are saints amongst us today that are living. A connection to God or source is something that can be achieved if one seeks it.
It’s interesting to note here the numerological and spiritual meaning behind the number 111. If you keep seeing 111, maybe as apart of an address or as a time on your clock, it is an indication that your guardian angels are trying communicate with you. I always believed 111 to mean new opportunities were on the horizon for you, or that a door was opening to give you a fresh start and a new beginning. Those in spiritual circles believe 111 represents the time of a spiritual awakening for the individual seeing it. As part of that awakening, the seer has an opportunity to begin shaping their reality.
If November 1st or 111 marks the beginning of a spiritual awakening, it seems perfect as it coincides with us honoring saints who have or had a connection to God. What better way to begin a spiritual quest than by honoring those who came before us?
Today is October 1st, and the Fall season arrived in September. We’re entering a unique time of the year filled with warmth. Enjoy everyone, and thank you for visiting Nooz Buffet.
