A Blessing for Summer Solstice

from Loren Cruden, author of The Spirit of Place

"Cosmic Sun" Doesburg (visipix.com)jpg

Powers of the South, the Summer, I come to you in prayer

In the midday light without shadow,

I thank you for lessons for growth, passion and relationship.

I pray to be with the sacred fire of the South

in a transformative way.

I ask for courage in this place of action and change;

I ask that my will be guided by right intention

and that my medicine be good

under the bright sun.


Let my idealism come not from self righteousness

or anger,

not from arrogance.


Powers of the South

I pray for the soul’s awakening to love

and for the vigor of youth to be within in my sacred dance.


May I express through every aspect of manifestation

the joy and grace of life’s vitality.

May I fully live!
