Lammas Ritual

Lughnasadh Altar outside 2016

I had two different Lammas rituals that I could have gone to and both got cancelled!  So what to do?  I didn’t have time to write something so luckily I found a nice opening that a friend had posted and I used that.  I have no idea where he found it from so if you know let me know and I will give proper credit.

I set up what I call my Easy Altar outside.  I have a glass container with glass votives in elemental colors with candles and they are sitting in earth.  I had a couple of pieces of corn husks with corn kernels in them.

I spoke the following and then added my own words that came from my heart. Then I buried the corn husks as an offering in my garden.

“Oh Spirit of the East, Land of the rising Sun, Of Air, the winds that blow across the lands, of new beginnings each day and of open horizons. We bless you and ask for your wisdom and blessing here with us today. Please join us, Spirit of the East.

Oh Spirit of the South, Place of Passion, Fire and Creation and Inspiration, whose warm breath reminds us of summer days. Ignite our hearts with love. We bless you and ask for your wisdom and blessing here with us today. Please join us, Spirit of the South.

Oh Spirit of the West, the land of the setting Sun, of water and Autumn’s whisper. Bless us with the knowledge of peace which follows the harvest of a fruitful life. We bless you and ask for your wisdom and blessing here today. Please join us, Spirit of the West.

Oh Spirit of the North, place of quiet, stillness, of cave and deep earth. Place of thankfulness for the knowledge and blessings that have come to us with time. We bless you and ask your wisdom and blessing here today. Please join us, Spirit of the North.

Oh Spirit of Mother Earth, you support us each day, welcoming our roots deep into your heart. You nurture and guide us finding sustenance and support. Help us to give thanks Always for Your bounty. We bless you and ask for your wisdom and blessing here today. Please join us Spirit of Mother Earth.

Oh Spirit of Father Sky, of the angelic realms, the countless stars of the night remind us that you are vast beautiful and majestic beyond all of our knowing or understanding. Your light shines upon the earth both day and night guiding our steps. We bless you and ask for your wisdom and blessing here today. Please join us, Father Sky.

Oh Spirit of our souls within, Place of union, love and reverence. We are grateful for this gift of life and for the love that guides our way. We open our hearts and join with all in love. It is begun.”
