In the Findhorn community, in Scotland, there is a pratice of taking the time to clean and honor the contribution of all the tools used in everyday living. For example, rakes, shovels, silverware and other utensils are blessed and thanked as they are cleaned and put away at the end of the day.
This ritual may apply to any life form that has left its physical body, its physical life and expression. It’s a simple ritual and we encourage you to adapt it to your own beliefs, your own sensibilities, and to the possibilities inherent in any given situation.
