A prayer of thanks

Lady Mother, I give thanks:

I give thanks that our highest court stood on the side of love and our families.

I give thanks that one long fight is over at least legally.

I ask that people’s closed hearts be opened and that they see it was just about loving and not about sex.

May they see us and not the prejudice they’ve been taught in an old book.

Help us remember why we did this and all those who are gone that we did this for.

Let us remember there is more to do and that no one deserves to lose their livelihood or the place they live because of who they love.

Be with all those who still suffer due to other people’s hate. Let this become a world more open to love.

Let us love ourselves even when the world may not love us and may every child be loved by their parents because of their heart not who their child’s heart loves.

Help us to all love more.
So mote it be.
Ashe’

Summer Solstice Prayer

I greet this morning of sunshine with open eyes

I see the flowers that greet the sun

I hear the birds call to each other from tree to tree

I sense the trees greeting the sun with me

I ask that today bring gladness and gifts

This summer solstice

Warmth of sun

Clearness of air

Happiness of birds

Purity of flowers

Greeness of plants

Prisms in water

Clarity of sight

Patience of growth

Blessings of the long day

May the gifts of this day surround me and all I love

From morning’s first light

Through the shortness of night.

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.

An Arch Druidess’ prayer

An Arch Druidess’ Prayer

Help me to be wise enough to listen to the wind.

To be able to hear the wisdom of trees

To be able to see news in the flight of migrating birds

To be able to read the way in the movement of a stream.

Let me walk under the stars and hear their music

Let me see by the light of people’s hearts

Let me find the path through the forest of confusion

Let me never think I’m better than the smallest creature

Let me never think I’m less than the largest one.

Let me be secure in the love of the ones who are important to me

Let me fearless for those I need to defend

Let me be wise enough to know when to lead

And wise enough to know when someone else should.

And wise enough when to get out of the way.

Let me know that I can trust what I feel

And what I know and let me walk in the right direction

Whatever that direction is.

Knot of Isis

Knot of Isis: http://youtu.be/ndssa0FBXmA

Just because

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

Prayer for a Summer Sunday morning

I ask peace, protection and blessing of this Sunday morning all this day, through the purple of Twilight and blackness of night.
Greenest of sycamore
Laughter of raven
Cheerfulness of nasturtium,
Clarity of sun and sky
Sweetness of roses
Soothing scent if osmanthus
Busyness of finch
Intelligence of cat
Sturdiness of oak
Be with me all this day,  though night to tomorrow’s dawn
