With everything going on in the world today it's easy to lose touch with our spiritual connection to the universe. However, deep within us, there is an innate longing to reconnect with nature and seek answers to our prayers from our divine guides. In this blog post, we will explore practical ways to reignite that bond with nature and open ourselves to receiving guidance and answers to our heartfelt prayers.

Making plant offerings presents a potent method to strengthen this connection. These offerings not only signify a deep appreciation for the unity between humanity and nature but also serve as a tangible display of respect for every living species. Join us in this blog article as we delve into the art of crafting sacred offerings. Step by step, we will guide you on how to engage in this meaningful practice and foster a profound connection with the natural realm.In this blog article, we will explore the art of creating sacred offerings, providing step-by-step guidance on how to engage in this meaningful practice.

Gathering the Elements
To begin your sacred offering, gather the necessary elements. You will need a piece of dry paper, along with leaves, roots, or seeds from your chosen plant ally or a plant that has recently called out to you. Additionally, select an extra gift, such as tobacco, corn, or herbs, that feels aligned with your intentions. Remember, it is important that all the items are dry, free from moisture.

Choosing the Sacred Space
Find a tranquil location in nature where you can conduct your offering ceremony. While a place higher in elevation, like a hill or mountain, is ideal, any serene spot where you won't be disturbed will suffice. Take a few moments to tune into the energy of the space, expressing gratitude for the present moment and acknowledging the benevolent spirits that reside there.

Creating the Offering
Arrange your chosen gifts on the piece of paper, folding it in half to encapsulate them. Then, fold the sides to create an envelope-like shape. As you sit or kneel in the sacred space, raise the offering and vocalize your prayers and requests aloud. Share your needs and desires, specifically mentioning the gift you have brought and asking for the prayers to be answered.  Oftentimes I include frankincense and myrrh incense to purify and call in clarity, himalayan salt for protection, mugwort for ancestral wisdom beyond all that we can see and hear in this world, and the leaves, roots or seeds of my favorite plant allies.

Igniting the Offering
After stating your intentions, use a lighter to safely set fire to the gift. Observe as the flames consume the offering, symbolizing the transformation of your prayers into the ethereal realms. Allow the offering to burn completely, ensuring that it is extinguished safely.

Burying the Remnants
Once the gift has turned to ashes, choose to either bury them at the offering site or at the roots of the first tree you encounter as you leave the space. This act of burial signifies the integration of your intentions with the natural world. Avoid looking back and maintain a reverent silence until you return home, allowing the energies to settle and manifest.

Making sacred offerings is a powerful practice that cultivates a deeper connection with nature and acknowledges the unity between humanity and the natural world. By engaging in this ancient tradition, we express our respect and gratitude while establishing a reciprocal relationship with the plant allies and benevolent spirits that surround us. Embrace the opportunity to create meaningful offerings, and watch as the harmony and balance between yourself and nature unfold.
