"LAIMA" (LUCK) IS THE LATVIAN GODDESS OF HUMAN DESTINY. SHE IS IS THE PERSONIFICATION OF LUCK AND FATE...BOTH GOOD AND BAD. IT IS SHE WHO DETERMINES WHETHER ONE'S LIFE WILL BE SHORT OR LONG...FRUITFUL OR POVERTY-STRICKEN. SHE ALSO DETERMINES THE MOMENT OF A PERSON'S DEATH. SHE IS BOTH THE SPINNER AND THE WEAVER. LAIMA EMPHASIZES BOTH THE GOOD AND THE BAD...FOR THERE CAN BE NO LIGHT WITHOUT THE DARKNESS.

SHE WAS ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH CHILDBIRTH AND IS THE PATRON OF PREGNANT WOMEN. BEING THE GUARDIAN OF ALL WOMEN, LAIMA GIVES FAITH TO THEM AND THEIR LOVED ONES. ONE OF HER MOST IMPORTANT DUTIES IS TO PROPHESY HOW THE LIFE OF A NEWBORN BABE WILL TAKE PLACE. SHE IS BY EVERYONE'S SIDE IN ALL-IMPORTANT LIFE OCCASIONS...AND OFTEN WALKS AROUND THE VILLAGE, DRESSED POORLY, TO SEE WHO WILL TREAT HER WITH RESPECT. THOSE WHO DO AND OFFER TO HELP HER ARE REWARDED WITH THE FULFILLMENT OF THREE WISHES. SHE WILL, HOWEVER, HELP EVERYONE WHO ASKS FOR HELP, BUT SHE BELIEVES THAT EACH OF US IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR OWN HAPPINESS.

THE CUP OF LIFE SHE WILL OFFER YOU IS ALL OF THE RICHNESS AND EXPERIENCES THAT ONE'S LIFE CAN POSSIBLY HOLD. ALLOW HER TO GUIDE YOU DOWN THE PATH OF YOUR LIFE AND AID YOU THROUGH ALL THE TWISTS AND TURNS YOU MAY ENCOUNTER... SHE WILL STAND BY YOUR SIDE WHEN IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO MOVE ON FROM THIS LIFE. CALL ON LAIMA FOR HELP IN MAKING CHANGES, TO MANAGE BLESSINGS, LOVE, LUCK, AND MAGIC.
