Well I guess that depends on what you do for Halloween, and what you call “spiritual”. There are certainly a lot of “spirits” running around. Kids all over are dressing up as ghosts, zombies, and angels which all have a spiritual side to them, but of course this is just dress up. The roots of this holiday are steeped in superstition and idolatry but nonetheless, a recognition of the spiritual realm.
The fact that it is celebrated at night and imbued with symbols of negative forces, bats and witches, leads us to believe that if you really take that stuff seriously you would associate Halloween with evil and black magic.
We’d love to just focus on good angels, but just like there are good angels, there are bad angels. Not really bad angels but angels in charge of bad. Everything in the universe has a spiritual force associated with it. Some force has to be in charge of hangnails and bad hair day. The Almighty created a complex system of angels and spiritual forces, and many of them perform things we’d rather not have happen. Some of these negative things are really good things in disguise like losing your job, when you get a better one that is more fulfilling. Other bad things are lessons for life, events to make us stronger or wiser, or the Almighty trying to get our attention to improve our character.
None of this is very photographic; after all, spirits are invisible. Hollywood has to make things more visual; give it more pizzazz. So the costumes are a total distraction from the essential spirituality of the day. Fun, yes. Candy is physical and is part of the evil decadence theme.
So Halloween, despite the negative overtones, is very spiritual. Just not in the way you’re used to. And in fact, if you understand that the Almighty runs the spiritual world, it is clear that nothing emanating from the spiritual world has any power on its own. Even the Devil himself cannot do a thing without the Head Honcho’s agreement.
So it’s all good.
