Mabon Ritual for Gratitude/Protection
Now is the time to give thanks for the summer blessings that we have received but we should also think about the coming months and the way the weather will change and the effects that this will have on the land the frail the elderly and sometimes the young too. We are blessed indeed in this modern society that we don’t have to go out in the cold and the wet to the outside barn to collect from our stores and we are blessed too with plentiful supplies of foods and medicines all year round. But don’t be fooled by that because there are still those among us who have little. There are still those among us who are sick or elderly and in poor health and we should spare a thought and perform a kind deed or give to a charity in gratitude that we are better off than they because no matter how bad you may think things are there is always someone who is worse off than you.
Think of these things whilst you celebrate this Mabon and perform a suitable ritual of your choice or use the one below.
Cast your circle in the usual way and decorate your altar with the appropriate colours herbs spices or flowers and any other items. You can use the verse below or another of your choice to suit your ritual.
Thanks we give for all received
From seeds that we have sown
We watched our crops in fields of green
And we’re blessed with what we’ve grown
Soon winter comes and we grow cold
Though fires burning brightly
We tend the frail we tend the old
We keep our vigil nightly
We here do ask our stocks and stores
Our flour for bread our harvest too
May keep again till springtime comes
And last the winter through
When you have finished close your circle in the normal fashion.
