Baby Naming & Welcoming Ceremonies

The happiness & the joy that surrounds you and your family as you welcome into your life, your precious newborn, dad_babygoes way beyond the descriptive word, yet each moment is an individual time in life, that is filled with strong heartfelt emotions.

A naming ceremony can be celebrated for the arrival of your precious new life, and to even honour new family members such as adopted children.  Naming ceremonies welcome the child into the family and officially introduce them to others, such as  close family members, friends as well as significant others, such as godparents, grandparents and carefully selected guardian angels. This type of ceremony provides an opportunity for parents and chosen angels to declare their promises of love and support to this child in the presence of family and friends.

As a Celebrant, I take the time to create an individual naming ceremony for your child by spending time with you in your environment. Yes, I will come to visit you in your home to discuss the naming ceremony. Seeing you in your own surroundings gives me an insight into the joys of your family, and I also get a chance to cuddle your little one.

New House and Home Blessing Ceremonies

Your home is a reflection of who you are,  it’s your place to live, it’s somewhere to welcome family and friends, it’s your own shelter from the outside world, and it’s your home is your castle.  A house blessing ceremony is an blessthishouseancient tradition that sets the stage for living your life.  It’s a way to embrace spiritual and emotional ownership because your  home is your sacred space. Just like a vessel, your home will provide nurturing to your body and soul, and just like that, if your home is not taken care of with love and respect, it then becomes a place that doesn’t support you fully. Symbolically and from a Feng Shui perspective, this is where negative chi can become overwhelming.

The term “House Warming” is descended literally from the act of warming a new house. In the past this usually meant that family and friends would gather together in the home of the occupants, they would each bring firewood that would be used to light fires in the new home, therefore “warming the house.”  The fires were also symbolic of clearing the energy of past occupants  as well as clearing that which will not serve or support the new owners, including the energy of a spiritual nature.

Whether you are buying, building or even renting your home, you’ll want to make it a home as best you can and fill it with positive chi. When I perform a house blessing ceremony I do so with the intention of clearing first, this is phase one and may take a few hours depending on the size of the house. I include readings, prayers, music, sage,  candles, essential oils and reiki. I work with the owner’s to set the energy for the home and if chosen I will assist you to create your home’s altar.
