IS HER SACRED TREE.
SHE IS PARTICULARLY CONCERNED WITH GUARDING WOMEN AT CHILDBIRTH, AND DURING A BIRTH THE GRANDMOTHER OF THE CHILD OR THE MIDWIFE WILL LEAVE OUT MATS, TOWELS AND OTHER WOVEN MATERIALS FOR THE GODDESS IN HONOR OF THE WAY SHE IS ABOUT TO WEAVE THE LIFE OF THE BABY BEING BORN. SHE ALSO CARES DEEPLY ABOUT THE EVENTS AND THE CRISIS IN THE LIVES OF WOMEN.
People made offerings to Her on rocks which bore the impression of feet. These are called the "Chairs of Laima." And at the "VAINIKINAS",OR "BINDING OF WREATHS", HELD AT THE " FULL MOON IN JULY", AT DUSK,YOUNG PEOPLE GO INTO THE WOODS AND PICK FLOWERS AND BRANCHES WHICH THEY WEAVE INTO WREATHS AND GARLANDS SINGING VERSES INVOKING THE BLESSING "DEAREST GODDESS LAIMA:"
Heaven's table has four corners
All four are necessary
At the first, the sun rises
At the other, it sets
At the third, Laima sits
At the fourth, holy Muora FROM THE LATVIAN DAINA
THE BELIEF IN THIS GODDESS WAS NEVER QUITE EXPELLED BY CHRISTIANITY.
