For some time now I have been contemplating a gift for you. From my collection of modes and means of Wellbeing that are free, easy, and effective I settled on this gem. I couldn’t think of a better gift for you this Winter Season than Wellbeing.
My Seven Directions Daily Blessing has evolved to incorporate more of my consciousness practices since the first time I heard parts of it many years ago while on retreat. How you begin each day has a profound effect on your day, your week, and ultimately your life.
May this Ceremony create a present and mindful day and pathway. To begin, write down all that causes concern or suffering, all wants, needs, requests for today. Include at least one Gratitude. Ideally, keep a prayer journal.
HOLISTIC WRITING GIFT- A journal is particularly useful because writing itself helps and heals you. Also, as your prayers are answered you will have a record of everything to be grateful for later!
SEVEN DIRECTIONS DAILY BLESSING CEREMONY
With love in my heart, I open this Sacred Space.
I raise my Spirit to honor the winds of the South.
Great Serpent, May your coils of light entwine us. May we forgive, and shed the past the way you shed your skin. May we walk softly on the Earth along the Beauty Way.
I raise my Spirit to honor the winds of the West. Mother Jaguar, Protect our space and the medicine way. Teach us to walk in peace, to be impeccable with our word and deed, and to see the pathway that leads beyond death.
I raise my Spirit to honor the winds of the North.
Hummingbird, Grandmothers and Grandfathers, All my Ancestors and Relations, Join us by our fires. May we hear your whispers in the wind. You who have come before us are revered, honored and appreciated. We honor you who will come after us, our children’s children’s children.
I raise my Spirit to honor the winds of the winds of the East
Great Eagle Condor, Come to us from the place of the rising Sun. Keep us under your wing. Show us the magic mountains we dare dream of and teach us to fly wingtip to wingtip with the Great Spirit.
(Move Awareness into the Heart of Mother Earth)
Here in the Heart of The First Mother, we gather for the balance and healing of all of your children. The Stone People, the Plant People, The four-leggeds, the two-leggeds, the ones that creep and crawl. And for the balance and healing of the finned ones, the furry ones, and the Wing People.
We gather to receive the healing and balance of all our relations.
(Move Awareness into the Sacred BodyMind)
We update the Family Soul and honor all versions of this body, mind, and soul across all space-time. We forgive and release other energies that do not serve our highest good. We receive love, light, knowledge, wisdom, and balance. We are renewed and go forth in gratitude.
(Face turned up into the Universe)
Father Sun, Grandmother Moon, to the Star Nations, Great Spirit, You who are known by a thousand names, and you who are the unnameable One, Thank you for bringing us together today to sing the Song of Life. As always, We are sorry, please forgive us. Thank you. We love you.
For now, we are complete in our healing, balance-restoration work. We close this sacred space. We seal the place of closure. We thank Our True Natures, of serpent, jaguar, hummingbird, dolphin, dragonfly, falcon, and eagle (whatever live beings are special to you!) We release their energies to return to the four corners of the Earth.
Mahalo and much Aloha, Dear One,
