Advice on giving thanks.
« on: November 16, 2013, 10:08:06 AM »

Hi. I was wondering if I could get a bit of advice. My sister went on holiday last week and as I am a worry wort and she is my precious girl, I would ask Isis and my guiding spirits to keep her safe when I said my evening prayers.  She's back and had a trouble free time and so I'd really like to show Isis my gratitude. I thanked her in my prayers but is there a geasture I can make or a specific prayer of thanks?
Thanks

Hi, I'm glad everything worked out well :) when I give thanks, I do things as simple as burying herbs, burning a letter or just lighting a candle. Those are only a couple options, the list is endless and can be more intricate, but whatever feels right to you, will be accepted just fine :)

Thanks Belladonna! What kind of herbs would you bury?

A small food or drink offering left outside is also a good way.

Hi to you too Lola... ;)
 
Whatever you decide to do will be appreciated, it's the gesture remember.

Since I can't really do much where I live, I tend to bury mostly herbs that I have on hand as thanks or crystals/gems outside of my front door. I don't think it matters what herbs, food, items you use as long as its what you decide cause I think the divine won't mind. Like what Drac said, its the gesture and being thankful that matters.

You're welcome lola ^^ Cinnamon incense sounds great.

btw, to add on to what I said, it does matter in the sense of burying something that is harmful to the earth, but everything else if fair game for giving thanks.
