four directions prayer

Tuesday, apparently the most productive day of the week, is an auspicious time to read something inspiring.

Here is a beautiful Native American prayer recently shared with me by a dear friend, a sister of my spirit:

“Creator, Thank you for today’s sunrise. For the breath and life within me.

Spirit of the East, Brother Eagle, may I have eyes as sharp as yours, so I am able to see truth and hope on the path I have chosen. Guide my step and give me courage to walk the circle of my life with honesty and dignity.

Spirit of the South, Wolf, help me to walk my path with joy and love for myself, others, the four legged and the winged ones. Show me it is right for me to make decisions with my heart, even if at times, my heart becomes hurt.

Spirit of the West, Brown Bear, Bring healing to the people I love and myself. Heal my body and mind.

Spirit Keeper of the North, White Buffalo, help me to surrender, to listen to the quiet, and make wise choices that are put in front of me.

Mother Earth, thank you for your beauty, and for all you have given me. Remind me never to take from you more than I need and give back more than I take.”


This picture I found to be the perfect compliment to the prayer, symbolic of Mother Nature gracing the planet with abundance; feeding animal, vegetable and mineral alike with light, water, air and love. I hope you find inspiration, like I did, in every color and word.
