Why do we give “offerings” to our Gods and what is an offering. When we ask the Gods for their help, and we receive it, we offer them thanks through offerings; so an offering is our way of saying thank you for the Gods’ help.
Now what is an offering? Offerings are things we sacrifice up to the Gods in thanks for their help.
Offerings can be things like:
- Pouring wine onto the ground
- Burning incense
- Burning a candle (all the way down)
- Leaving a small gift (biodegradable is the best) in some natural place
I find the more I say “thank you” with an offering, the Gods really appreciate the gesture, after giving an offering, good luck often finds me. I have even made offerings just to show them how appreciative I am of all they do for me. Just because.
So how do I make the offering? Take (for example) a candle and state the name of the deity and why you are offering up the candle to him/her.
Here is an example of what you can say:
“Squat, I thank you for the parking spot you gave me! I honor you with this candle.”
Then light the candle making sure to burn it all the way down.
This also helps us create a stronger bond with our Gods.
Offerings, Gratitude and Good News
Many of you have noticed the donation button on the sidebar of the blog. This button is there to help me keep this blog the Hidden Children of the Goddess going. It pays for helping keep the ads off the blog and maintenance fees, and recover registration fees.
Offerings, donations and gifts are an uplifting way to participate in life and in our community. Well, good news has come. Arthur has donated funds so we will be free of ads for one whole year. So I put out a big thank you to Arthur! I know a number of people who feel good when they are kind and helpful to another person or cause outside themselves. Helping others by being of service is why I blog. I am grateful to Arthur for his wonderful donation to help us and to help me continue my service.
Wondering how to donate to this blog? All you have to do is click the donate button on the sidebar and you can enter in any amount you like. It’s that simple, and it really helps the site.
