39 Days of Prayer – Day 6

Day 6 – Praising the Infinite

I honor the Goddess of all things known and unknown

She who is made of shadow and light

Chaos and order

Who provides the balance within my heart and mind

And loves me as I am.

I honor the God of all things seen and unseen

He who is made of strength and passivity

Who cradles and sets free

Who teaches me the power of speech and silence

And loves me as I am.

Blessed be.

39 Days of Prayer – Day 4

Day 4 – Honoring Our Ancestors

Enekpe – African Goddess of Family.  Enekpe is the Guardian of Destiny, particular within the familial blood line.  It is said Her worshipers went to war, and were threatened with extinction.  Enekpe offered Herself as a sacrifice in order to save Her people.  She was buried alive on the field of battle, and Her tribe was saved, their linage blessed by Her blood for eternity.

My blood is made from your water

my body from your earth

my heart from your fire

my breath from your wind.

I am made from the women and men who came before me.

I call to you Enekpe, and give thanks for my ancestors

who fought for my existence.

I honor their sacrifices and their offerings.

I call to you Enekpe, in gratitude and thanksgiving

For the piece of you that lives within me,

Your divine spark will carry on in my body and spirit

Along with the gifts of my ancestors

To nurture the hearts of the family who will rise from my flame and ashes.

Blessed be.

A matter of perspective

In dreams I saw a raven
Circling in the skies,
I think I saw myself
Flying in disguise.

Between the many shades
Of woodland green I saw
A pool bright with the sun,
The waves in fire undone.

Breaking through the underbrush
I think I was a bear
Drinking flames of water
To cool my burning thirst.

Sending soft soil flying,
As frog I kicked with sturdy legs
Reaching for the cool respite
Through the glimmer gliding.

I floated, deeper, down,
Immersed in liquid light
Now chastened, casting shadows
In my emerald kingdom.
