Let us enter this New Year with Peace in Our Hearts, on Our Lips, in Our Prayers…
We call to spirits of the North. We honor mother earth and her abundance. May we stand steady on her ground. May this dear planet and all her children grow stronger every day.
We call to the spirits of the East. We honor wind and ask that new opportunities for peace fill the air and that the white Dove of peace flies freely in all nations.
We call to the spirits of the South. We honor fire and ask that we be infused with warmth, enthusiasm and passion for the mission of creating peace on earth.
We call to the spirits of the West. We honor water and ask that it cleanse the hearts and souls of all women and men, and sooth our angers and wounds so that we may never again thirst for war.
We call to the spirits of above, of below and within, we ask to be united with God, Goddess and Great Spirit of All That Is. With all the forces of the universe, we pray for harmony in our world.
Let Peace live in your life, and in your world.
Let Peace live in your day-to-day, and in places far away.
Let Peace abound, all around.
May Peace be in your heart. Aho!
