We have a beautiful day in the Indian culture called raksha bandhan! You could akin it to a ‘siblings day’. But it it’s own right, it’s so beautiful.
The sister ties a symbolic string around the wrist of her brother, she sends her deepest wishes of love, strength and protection. In return you get a little envelope or gift! I honestly believe that anything done with pure intention is passed over energetically. A ceremony is an incredible way for this transmission to happen. And the siblings, every year get a ‘check in’ to remember there’s always someone that’s got their back.
Our siblings are the ones who know us the longest, through everything that is and everything that is to come. Cousins are also considered siblings in the tight knit Indian community and so we rise and grow stronger in the network of love and support we share with each other.
As east meets west, and Black Friday and Valentines makes its way to India.... I think it’s a beautiful tradition which we could share back in return! 🧶 We all need the love and strength we can get, right?! ✨
If you’ve never celebrated raksha bandhan before, give it a go! Send your siblings and cousins some good loving and deep wishes for their journey through life.
