Healing Prayer

Holy Ladies, Great Goddesses, Kwan Yin and Brighid

I ask healing from you

I ask your loving touch and graceful waters

To wash away the pain

To wash my wounds

To wash the healing through my mind and body

I thank you for your attendance on me

The candles are ever lit for you in my heart

And the your waters of your world wash around me

Bless all those who send healing

From their hearts, from their hands and from their souls

May they be blessed as they have blessed me.

I know that healing must be participated in as much as it is bestowed from you

And from those who heal in your names.

I allow my body and soul to soak up the energy and heal

I open my self to receiving your love and healing

I open my self to receiving your avatars love and healing

I open myself to healing.

Healing
Seven of Stones

After physical or emotional sickness a time of inner rest and rejuvenation is required. Patient and peaceful healing comes from a spiritual source. Wholeness after wounding.

You are receiving healing, and need to reunite your re-energised ‘astral’ or spirit body with your physical body.

Time to reawaken and ground oneself, using your visionary experience in a creative way in normal life.

Why the Knot of Isis?

Laura Janesdaughter always held the “Knot of Isis” prayer from the Egyptian book of the dead also known as the “Book of Coming Forth by Day” was a healing prayer. We (TOILA) closed most rituals saying it together while holding a red ribbon. When you were ordained you got to keep the ribbon used in your ceremony and were supposed to cut it into pieces and share it with those that needed it.

When we put on a weekend workshop and retreat many years ago Laura asked Diana, Denise and Jeni to set it to music and they did and that is what you hear on the video. When Jeni moved away and then Denise and Mary moved up North and Diana moved to Florida. I was the only one left to sing it and lead it for many years. It’s why the video came into being.Laura asked me to make it so we wouldn’t lose it and because people were always asking for it.

Laura had you sing it when you needed comfort or hope or help. When I was unemployed so long she would remind me to sing it or just ask if I had and I had been usually morning and night. Laura was convinced if you sang the prayer it would be answered and it always was. Maybe not as quickly as you would like, being humans we are an impatient bunch and Isis’ time is not our time. Laura even created a webpage dedicated to the prayer and gathered stories about it.

When she was in hospice and the first time we visited she was having difficulty breathing and was getting agitated I started to sing it and the others joined in and her breathing eased and she calmed down. We would continue to sing for her all that week until she passed and I know it comforted her. I’ve been singing it for myself lately and for the last few days for Mary and Denise. If for no other reason than that we hold the prayer so dear to all of us and our shared lives. So today, I’m singing it again for the love in our small Grove and the safety of Mary in surgery and for Denise as she waits. I sing it with love and I know Diana is probably singing it too.

At the end of the universe
A blood red cord
Binds life to death and will to destiny
Let the knot of that red sash
Bind us together
Cradling our hips and weaving all our dreams.

(Chours) We are the knot where the whole world meets
Red magic passes through our veins
Magic of magic
Spirit of spirit
We are the power of Isis

We are bound mind to mind
We are bound heart to heart
Heaven in one hand
Earth in the other
We will walk in harmony

(Chorus)

Give us not consolation
Give us Magic!
Give us the spell of living well
Give us Magic!

Chorus and
We are the power of Isis
We are the power of Isis
We are the power of Isis

Knot of Isis Prayer

At the ends of the universe is a blood red cord that binds life to death, will to destiny, and each of us to the other.
Let the knot of that red sash, which cradles the hips of the Goddess, bind in us the ends of life and dream.
We are each of us with our own share of hopes and misgivings.
Let our thoughts lay together in peace.
At our deaths let the bubbles of blood on our lips taste as sweet as berries.
Give us not consolation, give us magic.
Give us the spell of living well. We rise and walk.
The sky arcs ever around and the world spreads itself beneath our feet.
We are bound mind to Mind and heart to Heart.
No shadow exists between our footsteps and the will of Goddess. We walk in harmony, heaven in one hand, earth in the other.
We are the knot where the two worlds meet.
Red magic courses through our veins like the blood of Isis ~ magic of Magic, spirit of Spirits.
We are proof of the power of Goddess.
We are dust and water walking.

From the book of coming forth AKA the Egyptian Book of the Dead

Adventures?

When you are ordained as a priestess in the Fellowship of Isis, you have to have a head wreath, a stole and a wand. When you are consecrated an Arch Druidess in FOI’s Druid Clan of Dana, you bring a wreath a lunula and a staff. I have a tendency to put those things away for safe keeping and don’t use them often. My lunula is a bone moon I’ve had for years that I got at the Ren Faire a long time ago and it’s old enough to have darkened with age to a nice patina but since I was consecrated I really haven’t worn it much. This morning it leapt off the tree I hang all my necklaces on tangled with my crystal BunniHoTep. So I put it on. I can take a hint.

I think I know why. Tomorrow I go in for a colonoscopy and endoscopy to find out if I have cancer. And there are very few things in this world that terrify me, in fact, only two things do, lightning because I’ve been struck and it ain’t fun and the thought of having cancer. My family history with all forms of the disease is very high and very ugly. Yes, we have survivors but we have many that haven’t like my little brother who had multiform gliomabalstoma cancer.

Last time I had a colonoscopy they removed a precancerous polyp that was over an inch across and that was about 8 years ago and my doctor wanted me to come back in a year and have it done again but I lost my job and had no health insurance for 6 years. I should have gone in when I got insurance when I got hired here but ignorance is bliss but about 6 months ago I started having some nasty uncontrollable symptoms and I couldn’t ignore it any longer.

Last time they said drink 2 bottles of cleaner and be done. This time I have 2 pages of instructions. Starting with no milk since last night and I’m a big milk drinker and no raw fruits or vegetables or seeds and nothing red, since yesterday morning. At 9 this morning only clear fluids until the procedure. Tonight at 5 I start drinking 64 oz of some nasty crap, and some magnesium citrate and infant Mylicon. It’s not going to be a fun night. I hope I have enough tp to last through morning. All so I can be clean as a whistle when they start at 10:45 am. I’m soooo not looking forward to this and wondering way to much about how you work radiation and chemo into a work schedule. (Cart before horse, I know) Since the doctor’s fairly certain I have something.

Two very good and much loved friends are coming with me tomorrow and I honour them immensely especially since I probably am not going to be a very happy camper. I’m thinking of wearing my pjs just because I’m going to have to take everything off anyway to get rotorootered from both ends. I hate general anesthesia, no fun Versed this time. I’m having more anxiety than when I did my paper last Sunday. Brighid, Kwan Yin, and Hecate, be with me and Green Man wait for me at the end.

My lunula is from here: http://www.pale-moon.com/index.php?com=home, is you’re curious.

Brighid prayer

Brighid watch over us

May your flame light our way

Through the night

Through the storms

Through our tears

May your waters sooth and heal

Heal our hearts,

Heal our bodies,

Heal our minds.

May your forge make us strong

Strong enough to fight what needs to be fought

Strong enough to accept what can’t be

Strong enough to stand under the burdens we accept

Brighid, we burn your flame

We drink from your well

We are strong when we are weak because we have your blessing

We drink from your well to be healed

We walk in the mist following your footsteps.

We carry your flame with us and give to all who need it.

Brighid, we are your flames in the world.
