Dedicating to the Earth Mother

My local shop recently had a big sale, and I just had to pick up this lovely statue that I feel represents the Earth Mother of my pantheon so incredibly.  It's there in the top left, a resin and bronze mix that was relatively inexpensive but looks so amazing.

And so today was the dedication - I offered Her nine incense sticks scented with cedarwood (as the trees are her most beloved creation), and a small and simple chant asking Her favor.  In my pantheon, the Earth Mother is a bit of a distant figure; she cares most for the plants, which are unable to run or fight to defend themselves.  As a gardener and a life-long lover of trees, I feel Her interests are very close to mine, and am happy to be able to honor Her in this way.

In other news, my altar was recently featured on the website, along with a little summary of my current practice.  There's all sorts of altars currently displayed, and the website is still accepting submissions if you're interested in showing off your own!  Either way, you should certainly visit - it's a wonderful website that displays the diversity of the Pagan community in a fantastic way.


  1. SOOO beautiful! I honestly gasped!

    1. Thank you so much! I'll be sure update my reading pane as well, thank you for letting me know :)

  2. BTW, I changed the name to my blog and now no updates show up on the reading pane! Kind of crappy! It went from jasminlaflamme.blogspot to celestial-blessings.blogspot – just an FYI in case you want to update your reading pane.

    Lots of love! XOXO
