Today is my regular Flameshift but since Di and I are flying to visit D & M we can always use the help.

Every day and every night that I say the geneology of Brighid
I shall not be killed
I shall not be harmed
I shall not be put into a cell
I shall not be wounded

No fire, no sun, no moon shall burn me
No lake, no water, no sea shall drown me.

For I am the child of Poetry,
Poetry, child of Reflection,
Reflection, child of Meditation,
Meditation, child of Lore,
Lore, child of Research,
Research, child of Great Knowledge,
Great Knowledge, child of Intelligence,
Intelligence, child of Comprehension,
Comprehension, child of Wisdom,
Wisdom, child of Brighid.

May my words be as considered as poetry,
May I reflect on all I do or say,
May I meditate on those things important spiritually
May I seek to know more of the lore
May I research what I am curious about and what will enable me to grow
May I seek to know great knowledge,
May I acknowledge the intelligence of others
May I comprehend what I seek to learn and apply those lessons
May I know that seeking wisdom is not the same as being wise.
May I be a child of Brighid.

SelfBlessing is by me

Brighid, bean-oirdheirc
Lasrach grad
Fetaim lasrach soillse
Thoir cuireadh sinne
ris a’ bheatha

Brighid, Sublime Woman
Quick flame
Long may you burn bright!
You give us the invitation
to life everlasting

Prayer for a Midsomer morning

May I greet this Summer morning
With a cheerful face and loving grace,
Grace to my heart
Grace to my hands
Grace to my spirit.
Blessings to the fellow beings
I meet on my path
Keep my temper and patience this day
From morning light to fall of night

I ask protection for my spirit
From the nine summer flowers
Cheer of nasturtiums
Grace of a poppy
Strength of a sunflower
Uprightness of the iris
Flexibility of a morning glory
Permanence of a bouganvilla
Playfulness of a Johnny-jump-up
Peace of the lily
Determination of lotus
Nine flowers to guide me through the garden of light
Nine flowers to cheer me till night time.


A Prayer for the caregivers

Quan Yin, goddess of healing

Please remember the one who gives care

To the sick and the infirm and the elderly

Quan Yin, be with them when they are

Exhausted and on their last nerve

Be with them when they wake

In the middle of the night

And wonder how much longer

Brighid, give them your strength

Get them through the longest day

That feels like it may never end

Remind them when it’s hard

To remember this is a person they love

Brighid, be their light in the dark

Let them know they are not alone

That others have passed through

Before them and will after them

And walk with them silently

Let them find willing ears to listen

And to give them respite

Hecate, be there for them

When the end is near

Never let them be alone

Let them know they are loved

Let them know the cared for are not really gone

From their love

Let them accept their time of rest is here

Let them be ready to face the black hole

That may appear before them

Let them know it is only a tunnel

Not a pit.

Let them reach out to the ones waiting for them

Let them know they are loved.

Quan Yin , lend your healing touch

Brighid lead in the dark with your flame

Hecate, catch the falling with love.

So mote it be
