I would like to share with everybody today, a ritual I have been practicing for many years. This is done to appease spirits, demons/gods, dead loved ones, bring positive energy into one's home - all natural and good-mannered reasons. Of course, this can bring in much positive energy, and demonstrates your gratefulness for whom your honoring or making peace with. If you like spending an hour or two outside, crafting your own bouquet, this is for you. I would not like to confuse this with a binding ritual, because this uses a different subject and concept all together.
This ritual is in fact a ritual
of Earth, and Sun energy - which I signify as some of the most powerful
forms (as the Sun is powerful nuclear energy, that gives life to all
alive beings). Usually what I do, I spend on average an hour collecting
flowers, grass, sticks, leaves, ect. This could be anything whose energy
calls out to you, and/or something personal in your memories. Collect
what you believe is up to your standards, and make it into an all
natural bouquet. You can do this by tying the bottoms of the plants
together with dying, yet still alive grass stalks. Just make sure, that
you peel off the hard outside casing, and tie or twist up the stems at
least two inches.
After you are all done with your creation, you
could: burn it to signify new beginnings or a fresh start, leave it on a
grave for respect, bury it to rid of negative energies and old ties,
hang and dry it in your room/house/personal area to give out soothing
energy, even placing it on an alter for thanks - the possibilities are
"The basis and foundation of all the elements is the Earth. The Earth
is the object; subject and receptacle of all celestial rays and
influences and in it are the seeds of all things. It is made fruitful by
the other elements and the heavens, and brings forth all things of
itself. It is the first fountain from whence all things spring; it is
the centre, foundation and mother of all things.
Earth is the element
of stability, foundations and of the body. The Earth is the realm of
wisdom, knowledge, strength, growth and prosperity. It is also the
physical Earth on which we live and the very heart of life. It is
essential in spells and rituals of prosperity, business, fertility and
stability. Earth is a feminine element and governs stone and knot magic.
Earth can be viewed as our mother, with its fertile and nurturing
farmland, providing all Earth's creatures with nourishment and shelter.
The earth takes on qualities of the other elements, whether it is the
dry, dusty and hot aspects of Fire and Air, as is found in deserts. Or
the moist and fluid aspects of Water, in swamps, marshlands and fens. In
its physical manifestations, such as stones, rocks, crystals and gems,
the element of Earth represents the densest of the elements.
Earth is the womb from which all things spring, pressing your hand
against fresh soil, you can feel its vitality, stability and earthiness.
In its fertile soil, we've grown the food that provides life, on its
surface we live out our lives, and when the time to return to the
Goddess and God comes, we are interred in the earth.
exist in this form without the Earth. But our planet is simply a
manifestation of this element on the physical plane, each of the
elements exist in the astral planes as pure energy. This Earth energy
not only exists within ourselves but also throughout the universe at
