invocation of gratitude
I offer my heart's prayer forwards and backwards and to the Seven Directions.
To the Seen and Unseen Ancestors, Guides and Wisdom keepers of fundamental Nature-
I honor and give thanks to the ancient and living Ancestors of the Land which I am allowed to live and create from.
I honor and give thanks to all Indigenous lineages and Peoples of this precious Mother Planet.
Gratitude to our Teachers and Elders for tending to, and teaching with immense grace, the path of Right Relationship and How to Give of Oneself in Service to Life.
Gratitude to all Plant Teachers and the Animal Relatives for your gifts - for continually opening my heart and eyes- helping us realize the endless Nature of Creation and the Holy Mystery that breathes through all.
Thank You Creators, for making a way for the awakening of the Two Legged People.
Gratitude to the Shekinah, the Mystery, the Beloved - The Cosmic Bodies and the Elemental Forces-
and thank you to my Husband and to my own Mother and Father lines.
With each day may I become a hollow bone, an open window through which Truth and Beauty flows.
May we take courage on this Path. The strength to discipline the mind, to practice wisdom and kindness.
May we learn to Open the Heart again and again.
May we fiercely cultivate Right Relationship with one another and all Our Relations,
on behalf of those that have come before us and all those that will come after.
Thank you from my heart of hearts thank you!
