Many people wonder how they will ever bring a child into the world, anxieties such as, “Will he/she be healthy?” “Will my child live a blessed life?” Many parents go through this stage and are absolutely terrified of how the outcome will turn out. Now add the element of religion to it. Paganism is, as many of you know, a very difficult topic to discuss with people outside the realm of the faith. We don’t want to keep people out of the faith, but we want to protect our children and our faith from ignorance.
Well, the only way to shed light in an otherwise dark and ignorant-ruled world is to open up and allow the love of the faith shine to your friends and family and of course those who surround us every day. Now when Pagan children are concerned, let them live. Let them breath and decide to tell who they want. As parents, educate them on the faith and then let them live their spiritual life. They are individuals and lovely, they are protected by the God and Goddess. When you fear that the faith will bring them harm, then you are losing faith. Have faith that you and your child will be safe, and you should not have any worry.
If a beautiful Pagan child is brought up in this world, then ignorance will be broken, light will be shed on the world little by little, and as the light grows it will glow throughout the world as a beacon of love and hope.
Here are a few things for Pagan children.
If you are expecting a child:
Hang three dried apples by blue or pink ribbon above the mother’s bed. Say the following prayer three times every night.
Safe precious child are you in me
Healthy and perfect shall you be
By the God and Goddess
Here are a few prayers for your child:
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the God and Goddess my soul to keep
And if I die before the morn,
I pray my soul to be reborn
Another fun night prayer:
Thank you God and Goddess for this day
You have brought me love and blessings in every way
I pray I sleep and am greeted with pleasant dreams and light
And tomorrow may I be filled with Your love and might.
I hope this sheds some light on raising a Pagan child!
Blessings and Light!
