Baby Blessings & Baptisms
A baby blessing or baptism will be an event to welcome this radiant blessed being into its new family, surrounded by the love of its parents, grand-parents, siblings and family friends. Special elders may be asked to establish a loving bond with this new baby, in order to help guide its journey through its early years. We welcome the baby to planet Earth by using the four elements of earth, water, fire and air in a ceremony that will be a reflection of the joy that only new life can bring.
“With each child, the world begins anew.” Midrash
If it is a house that has been lived in before, perhaps it will involve a “cleansing” ritual to release any negative energy left by previous occupants. Each room will be blessed so that your living space can provide you with a definite sense of harmony and peace.
“When there is room in the heart, there is room in the house.” a Danish proverb
