Spirit Offerings



For many spiritual traditions, offerings are a vital part of the practice. From honoring ancestors and deities to showing appreciation for nature, offering items is a great way to connect with your higher beings.


Offerings can be made in many forms, including food or drinks, physical objects, material gifts or other resources. Some people even offer their time or energy through acts of service. The key is to offer something that is meaningful to you and that you feel will be valuable to the recipient.


When making an offering, it is important to be sincere and respectful. Take your time to choose an appropriate offering, and be sure to present it in a way that shows your appreciation. For example, if you are offering food, you may want to cook it yourself or present it in a special way. If you are offering a physical object, you may want to wrap it in pretty fabric or place it on an altar.


It is also important to be mindful of your intention when making an offering. Be clear about what you are asking for or giving thanks for, and work to be clear about the message that you are sending. For example, if you are offering food to your ancestors, express gratitude for their teachings and ask them to continue supporting you in your life’s journey.


Offerings are a great way to bond with your higher beings. They can bring you closer to your ancestors, deities and nature, or show appreciation for all that you have in life. No matter how you choose to practice, spirit offerings will help deepen your connection with the divine.

How to Make a Spirit Offering


When it comes to making a spirit offering, there is no one right way to do it. The key is to offer something that is meaningful to you and that you feel will be valuable to the recipient. You can also add your own personal touches to make the offering more special.

Flowers. In the spring my me all the flowers are in bloom so I personally find some flowers that I feel drawn to. I have a special little vase that draws a lot of important meaning to me. Sometimes I buy some flowers when I feel the need for coins to be exchanged as sometimes it is needed. But I find as soon as I place new flowers on my alters things start to go better.
