Daily Ritual for Honoring the Elements
EARTH DAY is April 22nd this year!
The earth grows our food and fuels our fire, sustains us with water that washes us clean and gives us fresh air to breathe. Everything we need to survive and thrive is given to us. Life on earth is such a gift. Here is a simple way, yet powerful way to show your respect for the place that provides us with everything we need to live.
- Gather items that represent each element. For example, a plant for Earth, a shell for water and a feather for air. You can use your candle for fire. :) Have fun with it!
- Arrange your items somewhere you will see them everyday.
- Begin every morning by lighting your candle and thanking the elements for their nourishment and guidance.
4. Let your prayers rise to the heavens! Your attitude of gratitude will be rewarded with much delight.
