PRAYERS AND DEVOTIONS FOR THE SPRING SEASON

PRAYERS AND DEVOTIONS FOR THE SPRING SEASON

 I kindle my soul at the hearth-fires
 of the Kindler of Souls; breath of love,
 breath of light,
 breath of life,
 be upon the embers of my
 Spring-wakening soul.
 Preserve my soul in gladness
 May it flame forth with the sun's
 returning glory.

*******************************************************

Goddess, teacher of my soul, I am inspired
every time I contemplate your wonders. As
the world celebrates the coming of Spring,
help me to follow the path of my life and
walk with me. Give me light to meet the
questions of this day.

*******************************************************

Goddess, today may I remember all newborn creatures
about to begin their cycle of life. May they live
and love in joyful awareness.

*******************************************************

 I make the encircling and go forth today
 under the power of the heavens,
 light of sun,
 radiance of moon,
 splendor of fire,
 speed of lightning,
 swiftness of wind,
 depth of sea,
 stability of earth,
 firmness of rock.
 From the heights, to the depths,
 may I be encircled in love and safety.

********************************************************

 Under the tender cloak of night I clarify my soul,
 out of the evening reach of the wind; 
 without guilt, without shame, without aversion,
 soul-friends and teachers all, help me clarify this day.
 I relinquish all the cares and burdens of my day
 into the deep lap of night.
 May my soul's teacher reshape them into wider pathways
 of understanding for me to walk.

********************************************************

 I refresh my soul in the slowers of Spring,
 drop of light, drop of love,
 drop of life,
 be the blessing on my brow, my heart,
 my hands.
 May my soul be preserved in peace
 from Spring's dawn light,
 till Spring's twilight.

********************************************************

 Creative Son, Skillful Daughter,
 between you the shuttle of life
brightly runs like a child's colorful game.
 In the rhythm of your weaving 
 I am enfolded.
 I gratefully put about my shoulders
 your garment of silence.

********************************************************

 I make the encircling of the crafts
 about me this Spring day:
 delight of poetry,
 majesty of music,
 variety of art,
 vision of seership,
 compassion of healing,
 peace of prayer, spirit of druidry,
 inquiry of science,
 transformation of alchemy,
 Nine crafts about me,
 perfection of skill
 encompass my soul this day.

*******************************************************

 Snow-light turns to Spring-light's
 blessing,
 Bride-lights linger in the sky;
 twilight dews the flowers caressing,
 vision's gift through soul-veils fly.

********************************************************

 I kindle my soul at the
 sown-flowers of Spring,
 bud of life,
 bud of light,
 bud of love,
 petals of my heart,
 preserve my soul in peace this day,
 from day's work to night's play.

*******************************************************

As Spring awakens all energies from dormancy,
so I call upon my soul's teacher
to show to me how this day has led
me out of isolation...
May the passion of awakening life
be granted to all who journey
through the realm of Spring.

*******************************************************

Goddess,Awakener of Spring, at the rising of the sun
I take refuge in your presence: as plants bud and
creatures prepare for the birth of their young,
so do I await the blossoming of my heart in your stillness.
May I walk with you this Spring day.

********************************************************

Goddess, as I wonder at the beauty of the world,
I offer thanks and blessing from my heart's depths.
I give thanks for the places that give me inspiration
and continuity of spirit, especially for __________.
I give thanks for the protective encircling of
the elements.

Love yourself, love your neighbor, love your enemies, but begin with self-love. You cannot love others until you love yourself. You cannot share what you do not have. If you do not love yourself, you cannot love anyone else either. Don Miguel Ruiz
