Autumn Blessing 23.09.11

Day and Night
A reminder of the cycles
Sacred Equinox

What seeds did I plant?
In the Spring~
A marriage again of day and night.
What seeds did I nurture
That now I may harvest?

What seeds did I allow to go fallow?
Intention, that I turned away?
What might I now prepare?
Where is my life no longer in Balance?

May the Abundance of the Harvest
Fill us with Joy.
May our Hearts and Souls Sing with a gladness
Peace and Compassion,
Spill over the land.

May the Winds,
Whisper to us,
Guiding us to Re-member
Who We are.

May we feel the Ripeness
Of Possibility with each
Giving Gratitude for all the Blessings~
We have received.

May our hearts be filled with Warmth
A Kindness toward our fellow Beings.
Awakening to Our knowing that
We are all connected

May we come to know
The Night as friend,
Finding in this quite time
Rest and Dreams.

Let us give Thanks to
Mother Gaia, Father Sky
To all those that have walked before and behind us
We are Blessed to wake to this Day.

May all Love surround you,
As you find within,
Your Sacred Equinox,
Your sense of Balance.
Your Divine Nature~
Blessings I give to thee
In Gratitude

Prayer for All Warriors

I may not know your name,
I may not know what war you fought in.
It does not matter – I honor you still!

Did you fight for your beliefs?
Did you leave behind your loved ones?
Did you fight because your country asked this of you?
I am sorry you were lost to us ~
I honor you.

I honor you your beliefs
That took you to war~
I am filled with Gratitude
That I live in a land that
I may speak and act as I choose.
It is because of you that I have these rights.
I honor you.

I honor also those that still find themselves in the fight
For what they believe to be true~
I do not understand that as a Race;
We can not find it in our Hearts ~
Compassion~ Honoring another’s beliefs.
I may not understand why you went to war,
Or the loss of your Life~
I honor you.

Warrior or Soldier
It matters not what I call you~
I honor your choice to
Stand up, hold Space, Believe Your Truth.
I honor you.

I Pray for the day
That all Warrior will be Peaceful.
All Soldiers with Open Arms.
Open Hearted ~
I will Honor You.

For now
I pray for all those that we have lost
To wars
I will remember you,
I honor you.
Blessings to you
Dear Warrior, Dear Soldier
I wish you Peace.
I honor you.

Mother's Day Blessing

Blessings this Mother's Day!

for some the day has yet to begin
some have been up all night
for it is a day, like any other, with things that need being done.
Happy Mother's Day!

We are mother's, women
The fabric of the home,
The heartbeat heard when we hold someone close.
The hand that is held, or removes a tear,
or fixes a scrap.

Some of us may keep a sparkling, spotless domain
Others of us, well speaking strictly for me,
Clean yet "artfully" cluttered.
(My loving child - might say different- for her -it's just plain too much!)
Loved none the less.

What makes us Mom - it is not so much the giving birth
It is the minutes that add to a moment, a life time
Of holding, listening, caring.

Of being there
Of saying Yes, sure go ahead
Of the NOs - we said when it mattered most, for surely it was best!
Loved all the more!
Go ask your Mother.........
For in the end we really rule the nest.

It is the moment we agree to listen
To hear another, to give support
We need not understand all the time
That's new and interesting, we say
Tell me more?
Let me know how it goes.
Our heart turned to let it be wonderful.
Let it fill up their hearts, souls the being that is them!

We want what is best
For our children, our friends
We Mother each other in times of distress
Times of great Joy.
We worry about little things as though they were huge.
And some of the big things in life as though they were nothing at all.

With children.
Never haven given birth.
With children who have gone before us.
Of children, knowing it best, we gave them up, too young were we.
Women one and all.

To all my women friends let me say Happy Mother's Day!
Thank you for the times you have Mothered me, and bore with me as I did the
same to you.
For those who have "suffered" me a "Mom moment" upon a stranger,
turning in a tag, or a simple wag of a head NO, don't - ( I couldn't help myself)
I send you my Love and my gratitude.
I mostly Thank Miss Tirzah McWirzy, for inviting me to be Her Mom!
Bright Blessings to you all, this Mother's Day!

Thank you Great Mother, Mother Gaia, Mother Mary your Guidance.

Mother's Day, 13.05.07

Three generations of women~ The Tree of Life~ My mothers name in the roots upon my back! Thank you Jennifer for taking this picture.

Yes, I have used this before~ I added a line. I wish to spend my last moments loving my child before we head out to the airport~ Love you all.

Blessings of Beltane 2011

As the fires of the night burn low in the fields,
A new day awakens,
In Gratitude and Joy
Great Mother, Great Father
Above and Below
We came singing to your Wedding.

We lit the fires of the debris of last year,
We pray our offerings you would enjoy.
We are grateful for the fertility you whisper on the Earth,
Humbled by the Mystery that harkens in our Souls.

Great Mother, Great Father
Mother Earth, Father Sky
Your Union of the Elementals
Each mid –Spring,
Fire of Passion, Water of Forgiveness,
Earth of Re-membering, Light of Renewal
Guide us in our dreams,
In our waking
Joining the Sacred Feminine and Masculine.

Guide us to understand that All Beings
Share in your bounty,
That as we breathe, so do you.
As Our heart’s beat,
We hear Your Song in Harmony.
Guide us Great Mother, Great Father
By your Grace we Live.

As the Beltane fires of what no longer serves,
Burn down, and the New Day awakens,
Guide us,
To Sow that which is in Service,
Kindness, Compassion and Love.
Let us hear Songs of Joy instead of Hatred.
Once again,
Great Mother, Great Father
You have Blessed our Fields
In Fertility~
We pray that we do not squander this gift.

Blessings to you Great Mother, Great Father
We are filled with Gratitude for your gifts.
May we invite the Mystery and Magic to
Fill us with True Wonder
That we may share with All Being.
Guide us to live in Peaceable Harmony.

Prayer from the Divine on the Day You Were Born

Welcome to the World ~ Gia Elizabeth and Eli James ~
Welcome, little one! Welcome to this physical world, that has been Co-Created with and for YOU.
I wish to invite you to Remember Your Divineness as you grow into all that is before you.
I am privileged to be here Loving you as I will each day of your life.
I want you to know how Thankful I am to be here at your Birth. The Light and Joy that shine forth from you, lights and fills the world. You are a shining Star!
It is my joy to love you, unquestioning and I know in your Divineness that love is returned.
I want you to know that there are moments we all falter, or do things that are
Mis- understood, yet know I will always see the bright Divineness that You ARE at this very moment and will be.
I wish to Thank You for your willingness to be a physical being with all that brings.
I will Eagerly await your Awakening, into your Full – Self.
I wish to remind you that you only need to think a thought and
I will hear! ~ That all you need ~ I will provide.
Know, my little one that I am in all that Surrounds you ~ as are YOU.
I ask you to trust in Me and Your own Divineness ~ as I trust in you.
Welcome, Little one! Welcome to your life. Live it Well!

We Welcome you Sweet Gia and Eli

Authors note: This was written for 4 separate friends who were all bringing New Beings onto this Earth within, weeks of each other. I was struck by the thought that as we enter our bodies to be born, our very Divineness most have a conversation with all the Divine around us.

Feel free to copy and place a child’s name into the text, I ask only that you give me writer’s credit.
Thank you.
I thank Nicholas & Ella, the first New Beings in my life since Huntyr.

For Jodi~A Blessing into Motherhood.

This was written on request by my friend Laurie, I am Honoured to know both she and Jodi. I am blessed that I was asked to write this for a gathering of Women to celebrate the coming of a child. Feel free to change the name for a friend. Welcome to all Women as Mother's. We are Mother's of many, with or without a child, yet are we all not children? Blessings to those who choose the path of Motherhood in their highest becoming. Blessings to all who stand with friends as they walk the path of Parenthood. It indeed takes a community to raise a child.

For Jodi ~ A Blessing into Motherhood

A child has called to you,
As you have called to them.
Invite yourself to be held in this Wonder.
This Love,
Your heart walking upon the Earth.
Come play and join us,
Stardust that you are.

Great Mother Gaia, we call to you
You, who for all time has shown us the way.
Guide us in the way of Motherhood
Come play with us
Join us in this Celebration
Your Child Jodi, is heavy with Joy, little E
Soon, you will feel her little ones feet
Walking, too upon your great belly.
Share with us Great Mother Gaia,
Your Love, Our Love
Jodi’s calling into Motherhood

We call for the Grace of the Elements,
That they may teach us
The Warp and Weave
Guiding Jodi, preparing her for
All the unknowns.
Oh, yes, Sweet Mother Gaia, Winds, and Elements
We believe we know what it means.
This growing inside our belly
Undefined and infinite
The laughter of the first kick outward
Oh, the Mystery
The sheer Delight we experience.

As Jodi’s friends, guide us
To share in her
Laughter and Tears
Sharing in this Responsibility to Life.
Each Child, brings into this World
It’s own lesson to be learned
We ask that Jodi, be blessed.
Knowing that You have already blessed her
In this Dance of Motherhood.

Sweet Mother Gaia, Winds and Elementals
What Gifts might you share?
On the Winds of Patience,
Let there be Tenderness
For there will be times with no sleep,
On the Winds of Courage,
Let there be an Open Heart
For we know not what the future holds.
On the Winds of Laughter,
Let there be Tears,
Sharing in Joy and Sorrow.
On the Winds of Anger,
Let there be this Memory
Of the Joy you feel for this New Diviness you carry.
Sweet Winds of Freedom,
Let there be a Gladness
For all that you may share, learn and teach.
On the Winds of the Unknown
Let there be skills,
That we do not know to ask for,
That you may Remember to ask for Help.
On the Winds of Wisdom
Let there be an Willingness toward Openness
That perhaps, I don't know what's best.

Oh, Sweet Jodi,
You share in the choosing
Entering into the Warp and Weave of Mothers.
Let us Sing, Dance, Shout out your Gladness.
And Ours
Let us stand with you, Friends, Sisters, Mothers,
Women folk~
Welcome, welcome Sing the Stars
Welcome Jodi,
The Universe holds you in it’s hands.
Come Play with us in Motherhood.
Blessings to you, Sweet Jodi
Welcome to this Place of your deepest Becoming.

With love Rosemary

The Magi came
Following the Star, the Light
Bearing gifts in Gratitude.

An insight,
You, my Friend
Are a Gift.
I am most Grateful
Bring me not things,
Come sit with me, share with me.
You, my Friend are the Gift.

Sharing with me your inner most thoughts.
Those who have sat as Witness in Silence
As I have Struggled and Grown.

For being part of my World.
