There are many rituals which you can choose from to personalise your Blessingway ceremony. Here are a few of our favourites which we offer as part of our picnic package. If you would like to add a different ritual to your package we would love to hear more about your your ideas.
A wonderful way to start off a Blessingway ceremony is to cleanse the space by burning sage, also known as smudging. Sage smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. Sage is used to 'wash off' the outside world when one enters ceremony or other sacred space.
A beautiful way to bring everyone together during the ceremony is to pass around a roll of twine or pretty cord which each guest links around their wrist and passes on to the next person. Once the twine has made its way around the circle, each guest turns to the person next to them and cuts the twine tying it like a bracelet. You could add charms or beads to personalise each bracelet if you like. This binding ritual represents the connection that the mother to be has with her close family and friends. It is worn by everyone until the birth of the baby. Leading up to the birth the mother to be can look down at her bracelet and know that all her loved ones are also wearing their bracelet and sending her positive thoughts.
The focus of a Blessingway is to encourage the mother to be to recognise her strength, believe in her body and its ability to birth her baby and feel confident for labor, birth and motherhood. A special way to share positive birth affirmations with the mother to be is to write them down on a leaf with some special art pens or on some calico bunting flags which she can hang in her birthing space.
