Elemental Ritual

FavoriteLoading ADD TO MY MINI GRIMOIRE

For many years now, I have practiced asking for the protection of the elements as part of my daily ritual, and I honestly feel that this has saved my home on several occasions.

One time was about two years ago. In the middle of the night my husband woke me, saying he smelled something burning. Sure enough, the hallway bathroom outlet was hot and was beginning to smoke. There was a fire in the wall. We managed to get ourselves and all the animals out, and the fire department responded.  Turns out by some extreme stroke of luck, the new air conditioning unit in the attic started to leak for no apparent reason. It leaked into the wall in the precise area that the fire started, between the walls, wetting the wood so it did not burn.

Also, since it is an old house, the wall was insulated with newspapers. The water had soaked these, and slowed the spread of fire. The firefighter said that this probably saved our lives and our home, as the type of fire it was usually rages quickly. There was only minimal damage. When the AC tech came to check the unit, he could not find anything wrong, and had no idea why it leaked. Therefore, the element of water stepped in to mitigate the damaging effects of fire. Coincidence? Hmmm….

You can perform this simple ritual as part of your daily devotions, weekly, during your full moon ceremony, at the sabbats or whenever you wish. Greet each direction in turn, and greet the elements you associate with that direction. For instance, this is my own personal devotion and ceremony. Feel free to tailor it to your particular tradition, using your own words and correspondences.

Working with the Elements on a regular basis, treating them with respect and living in harmony with the natural world has helped me to stay mindful of the beauty and power of the Elements. It has also fostered a close relationship with them which I have found fulfilling.

Peace and Blessings to you.
