Mabon Ritual for Health
A bowl of earth from the yard of the home
Assortment of iron nails (railroad spikes work best if you can get them but don't go pulling them out)
A brown candle and a green candle
Begin at the entrance to your property that sees the most traffic. If you have a yard and house, this will likely be the end of the driveway, where it connects to the street. If you live in an apartment or townhome, you may wish to use your front door, or the hallway in front of your door. You may want to put your supplies on a tray or in a bag, if you're doing this alone. If you have other people participating, give each person some items to carry.
Earth, symbol of security and stability,
bring peace and good health into my home
at this season of thanksgiving.
May my family be well,
my house be a haven,
and my table be one of hospitality.
May the earth, the soil, the land,
ground me and protect me and
those whom I love, and that which I call mine.
My property shall be a safe place,
a secure place, a healthy place
for all those who enter.
As I will, so it shall be.
Iron spike, in the ground,
protect my home, my family and me.
Keep out that which would cause us harm.
Repeat this with each iron nail or spike, until you've placed a protective barrier around your property. By now, you should have returned to your bowl of earth at the entrance. Light the green and brown candle, and place them within the bowl. Pack the earth lightly around them so that the candles don't topple over. Say:
Dark and light, equal parts
at the time of Mabon.
Fire and earth, together.
Balance, health, security,
these things shall be mine.
Now is a good time to call upon the God and Goddess asking for assistance. If you do so, be sure to make an offering in their honor. If you choose not to call upon them at this time, just take a few moments to reflect on your home life, and the things that mean security to you. When you are finished, bring the bowl with the candles inside, and place it in a spot where all can see and allow it to sit until the candles go out. When the candles have burned away, return the earth to your property.
You can still do this today/night!
