For this ritual, we took a page for a local Druid group. They believed in giving thanks at their public rituals. As this is a Goddess Sabbat we honor Her as well.
The Goddess is the Sprit to the God's Physical. We call the quarters/elements to assist us in our rituals. Today we remember what spiritually we have gotten from all the elements and honor them but using their medium to thank them.
Air, the provence of new beginnings, fresh starts, the light after the darkness. Think of what you have gotten spiritually from these and speak your thanks.
Fire, the provence of action, passion, and moving forward. Think of what you have gotten spiritually from these, write your thanks on a piece of paper and burn it.
Water, the provence of healing, endings, and reflection. Think of what you have gotten spiritually from these and write your thanks using water, write it on paper and put it in water, or write it on paper and fold it into a boat that you float on water.
Earth, the provence of stability and wisdom. Think of what you have gotten spiritually from these and write it in seeds on the ground, or write it on paper and bury it in the ground.
Now the elements have helped but don't forget the people in your life who love and care for you and are there every day. Even if they already know, it is important to let them hear the words, or read them. Text, email, hide notes where they will find them, get creative and let them KNOW how you feel and how important they are.
