Spring is a wonderful time. Nature is waking up and coming back to life. The Earth melts under the warm rays of Sun.
If you have kept your child's placenta for longer than 1 year, it is no longer suitable for consumption.
Many cultures believe that placenta is the physical body of child's Guardian Angel. Therefore, child is connected to placenta energetically. After their separation at birth, in order for child to feel well emotionally and physically, placenta needs to be brought to Earth, where it will be warm and properly returned.
Spring is the best time to do it!
When you are planning your placenta burial ceremony, here are a few things to consider:
* buy a tree to bury your placenta under or to bury it in a forest
* write a letter of wishes to include in the burial site
* decide who will be present to bless placenta to rest
If you'd like to have a print keepsake of your placenta before parting with it, here is what you can do:
* get good quality large sheet or art paper
* thaw your placenta and make sure there is some blood on it (it will serve as the print ink)
* place some paper towels on a cutting board to catch any drippings and place placenta on top of the towels, veins side up
* place paper on top of the placenta and apply slight pressure
* remove paper carefully
You've got yourself a beautiful keepsake that can be proudly displayed.
Happy Placenta Burial Ceremony!
