Essene Meditations And Blessings #56

Meditation

The promise, the prophecy, is within me.

That which I have waited for is now present.

No longer need I fear.

Within me shines

The first glimmering of the Light,

And I am filled with the awareness

That the fulfilling of the prophesy

Is not a thing apart from me;

It is me.

As the first small rays of the sun

Return to my world,

I, too, return slowly to the world of form.

I humbly accept the mantle of that which I AM.

As I merge my light

With the light of all the beings of Light,

I surrender to my own divinity.

The Blessing

Life, you are a profound expression of Love.

The gentle, quiet expansion

Of the winter-mother’s love

Fills me with inner joy.

I bow before the purity of this love

Which nourishes without attachment.

-Danaan Parry

Pagan Prayer #6

Morning

Today is a day to focus on positivity. Positive energy attracts positive energy and repels negative energy. I can bring more positive things into my life by letting go of negative thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes about myself and others. I especially need to let go of negative thoughts and feelings about myself. I don’t have to force anything – I just need to let them go.

Evening

I know that I did my best today to focus on being positive in thought, word, and action. I can rest tonight knowing that good things can come into my life because I have the power to make them manifest.

Pagan Prayer #5

Morning

Today is a day to focus on abundance – the abundance I already have in my life and the abundance I wish to create. As I look at the abundance of life on this earth, I know that I am at the center of a creative, evolving universe that will always provide abundantly. I immerse myself in the productive, fertile process of abundance in all of its aspects.

Evening

I know that I did my best today to focus on abundance. I can rest tonight knowing that I am part of an abundant universe, and I cannot help but be a part of it.

-From the book ‘A Daily Book Of Pagan Prayer’ by Megan Day

Essene Meditations And Blessings #54

Meditation

Slowly the balance shifts

From inner creativity

To outer manifestation.

Slowly my core of inner strength

Streams outward

Along my nervous system,

Bringing health and vitality

To the whole of my being.

The life in me prepares itself,

Strengthens itself

For the moment in the cycle

When it will overflow its bounds,

Surging toward a oneness

With all of life.

The Blessing

I evoke the forces of peace and harmony

And ask these forces

To prepare me as a channel

For their overlighting guidance.

My heart swells with thanksgiving

For a winter of inner preparation

Which will lead me to the first step

In becoming a channel for peace:

That of finding peace

Within my own being.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #53

Meditation

From the calm place

At my spiritual center

I have touched the wisdom

Of the earth in winter.

Regeneration streams

From the holy earth to me,

And I am full.

I now gather to me the lessons

Which will empower me

To channel this life-giving earth force

For the good of all beings.

The Blessing

The winter’s journey

To the source of inner creativity

Now turns and guides me slowly

Toward outward manifestation.

Depth will be fullfilled

In expansion

As I contemplate

My dharmic path of service.

I give thanks for the Mother’s gifts

Which have brought me to this.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #52

Meditation

You run from me,

You who have showered me

With light and warmth.

In summer’s fullness I was nourished

By your glow,

But now I must provide this warmth myself.

The glow must be found within my heart.

The light within my spirit.

When next we meet in summer’s glory,

I will wiser be.

Till then I take your light

Inwardly in me.

The Blessing

(On this evening, the Blessing takes the form of a love song. In the higher sense of Love)

Love is the ocean, Love is the ocean, I am one with thee.

Once a tiny lake, Now a mighty sea, Love, I am one with thee.

Repeat substituting the name of each person present for the word Love. If you sing the blessing alone, use your name, and repeat the verse until you can allow it to be true for you.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #51

Meditation

This morning gives a song to me,

Within my heart,

To give my spirit wings.

And I must close my eyes

To let the music come.

Unhurried, without force,

It yields its gift to me.

And just as gently

I share this gift,

I hum this melody.

The air accepts,

The world is nourished,

And I become my song.

(Allow some song or chant to come to you in meditation and give it wings.)

The Blessing

Within my being lies a silent power,

A firm, solid frame

Of wise and compassionate strength.

How often do I deny this gift,

This blessing from my Source?

Perhaps as the outward power of the sun recedes

In winter,

I will learn to own the strength within.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #49

Meditation

The seed within the earth

Lies alone, awaiting.

It knows not loneliness,

But strength of purpose.

Throughout the year

I have known loneliness in crowds,

But aloneness is quite different.

I must pass through the gate

To the inner temple

Alone.

The Blessing

My inner wellspring bubbles over,

And the more I share

The more I have.

Help me

To be of valued service,

Yet not attached

To being a server.

For the tools of service

Are compassion and humility,

And these are born in a loving heart,

Which is open enough to take

As well as give.

From you I receive,

To you I give,

Together we share,

From this we live.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #48

Meditation

The colors change,

So slowly at first.

The mood is changing,

With subtle shifts of softness.

My Mother’s garden shows to me

The procession of all life.

The life in me responds,

For I, too, am of this garden,

and subject to its call.

No fool am I

That fights this journey,

Missing the inner wealth to come.

The Blessing

As the wheel of the seasons

Turns me ever forward

Toward my last season,

My heart tells me that there is more.

My eyes observe the seed as it grows

Into the tree.

And from this tree

More seeds will come

To once again be trees.

The essence of my spirit

Lives within each seed,

And my tree will grow anew.

Blessed is my spirit,

For it will never die.

Essene Meditations And Blessings #47

Meditation

There is a yearning in me now,

Which follows a season of outbreath.

It is the longing for a sweet inbreath

Of my spiritual nature.

And as my spiritual nature still urges me

To do,

Yet in my heart I know

My path leads me to be.

And I humbly honor the do-er in me

That makes my world revolve.

But now I prepare to take my inbreath

At the center

Of my Self.

The Blessing

You have brought me to the sun

And have filled me with its light.

You have strengthened my Will

And clarified my sight.

And now the eagle must fly

Back to the earth

And make ready to surrender

To the season of new birth.
