From Mind Body Green —
Blessing Welcome Plaque is an ancient tradition that invites positive energy into your home. Your home is an extension of your body and spirit. As you give to your home, you give to yourself.
There are numerous ways to bless your home. Depending on your beliefs and background, some are more extensive than others. You could invite a religious leader of some sort to your home. They perform a blessing ceremony, they might walk through your home or the perimeter of your yard saying a prayer or sprinkling holy water. You might put a mezuzah on each of your doors, or mark a cross on each of the windows with anointing oil.
But…maybe you don’t want to do all that. Maybe you don’t have time. Who does? 🙂 We have a great alternative (and much easier) way to bless your home. Cue the Blessing Welcome Plaque! This plaque is inviting as well as friendly, as it wishes blessing on your home and all whom enter.
In Ancient Greek culture, the concept of hospitality was referred to as Xenia. The Greek’s, abiding by general friendliness, were welcoming and gracious to their house guests, even when those guests were strangers. Now we don’t expect you to invite hordes of strangers into your house, but for those people who you do let in – may they receive blessing.
