This is the ritual and blessing I did for Lammas this year:
Sit loosely clothed in the garden or by a window looking out at it.
Light a white, yellow or gold candle. Meditate on the flame, focusing on both the blessings in your life and the sacrifices you need to or should make.
When you are finished meditating, take a bite of bread and a sip of tea, alternating until gone.
Blow out the candle.
Blessed BeFirst Harvest Garden Blessing
- This blessing is to help my garden get a little bit of oomph - late cold snaps really stunted it this year - but it could easily be adjusted for just general prosperity.
Handwrite a blessing for continued prosperity and positive abundance. Lay a snipped leaf from the garden to represent all the plants and a piece of dried corn husk to represent abundance on the blessing and tie the bundle with a piece of twine. Burn the bundle and scatter the ashes in the garden.
The blessing I wrote (I like to rhyme when I write a spell or blessing because it makes it easier to remember, as repeating the words after the spell is finished helps reinforce it):
Take this leaf for them all
Demeter, growth and fruits
Corn to give this garden a boost.
