Our kitchen table is our most spiritual place in our home. The little ones look forward to each meal, reciting our mealtime blessing and eating food together by candlelight. I was not a very spiritual person before I started my family. I was a different person then, my focus on life was much broader. Giving birth made me a believer of miracles. I was completely taken over by the aura of my newborn babies. Children by nature are spiritual beings and we need to nurture what comes naturally to them or their strong connection to the spiritual world subsides. I enjoy honoring their nature and I am grateful to my little ones who opened my heart and mind to being connected to Sacred Spirit.
Here is a link to a post I wrote a few months back that includes our Mealtime Blessing. In the comments section you will find many wonderful prayers that readers have shared. Please share with me ~ I am very interested in your family's blessings and rituals.
