Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!!
Only had a few trick-or-treaters, which was disappointing because now we have a TON of candy and nobody to eat it (I guess I'll bring it in to work), but I got to dress my pooch up as a pirate so that made up for it!
Our harvest feast was WONDERFUL (even if I did overcook the cornbread just a wee bit), my DH thoroughly enjoyed the chicken and the rest of it plus the bones is in the crockpot making stock for my mom.
I made a small plate for the ancestors (and anyone else that may have dropped by) and left it on the table for a while, then put it outside near our wild cherry tree. Then my husband and I burned out little fire in our new firepit and drank Guinness and wine til it was time for bed! And we slept great!!
Today is going to be a great day! My county is putting on a Green Faire and there's gonna be like 70 vendors! I think I'm gonna dress Panda back up in his pirate costume and head on over to the fair for the morning. Hope everyone has a great day!!

It will be easier to handle that way as it won't be a suprise when they show up and it will be on his terms. Have him say something like "Attention all those spirits who wish to contact me, I will be available to speak with at X o'clock at such and such place. Please do not attempt to contact me out side of this time and location." Then you can be their with him for support and help him deal with the spirits. It may help if he is willing to let them contact him. If he wants no contact at all then good luck.
I don't think he wants no contact at all...he's just scared. I mean, this isn't like the shows on TV...this is real life. Many of the people who have experienced this before have friends to talk about it with, but we don't. I am my husband's only family in this country, and I've never seen nor heard a spirit in my whole entire life, so I'm trying to be the best support I can be, but it's hard when I really just don't understand what he's going through. And, I mean really, if the house is pitch-black and silent, and you're ready to go to sleep and someone says "Hello", it's pretty darn scary, ya know?
Thank you for the advice, though.
This may work. I have a feeling he's just not ready to communicate back with them, but we'll see what he says. I'll have him pull a few cards today regarding this idea, and maybe then he'll feel a bit more confident (depending on what the cards say, of course!).
