Calling the Directions…by Rebecca Funk

I use these words sometimes to call the directions.  I wrote them to better understand the symmetry of the ceremony and this cyclically sacred life.  Even though the words are familiar, I often find myself teary and full-of-heart.  This is a simplicity of praying, a praying what is, a reminder of all the goodness that’s already present, as well as a heart-felt cry for healing and integration.

I’ve customised the goddesses/power animals/signs of the zodiac and their qualities according to what is relevant to me.  Feel free to add your own familiar symbols/being/signs and what they mean to you, grounding it in your own experience – the ceremony will be inherently more potent this way.

I alter the elements based on where I am and what’s around, geographically.  I like this reminder to pay attention to the present moment, what’s here now, to practice letting go of the “plan” every now and then.

“I have been given so much.
I am clear in my vision.
There is nothing holding me back.”
