Introduction

 

The prayers, rituals, and rune cards are an important part of the Wilde Grove stories, and many readers have told me how much they enjoy using them in their own practice, copying them out, and often memorising them.

Here they all are, brought together in a small book for you to refer to, carry around, and just enjoy as part of your own day.

I’ve made a few small changes here and there to make them suitable to stand on their own outside the story they were in. Mostly, I’ve made them so that they can be said by those in solo practice, when it’s just you. For group prayers and rituals, please don’t hesitate to change them or change them back to suit. I’ve also made a note of which book they came from so you can easily look them up and see how Morghan, Erin, and others incorporated them into their practice. I absolutely recommend changing them to suit your own practice – use the kin, for example that resonate more with yourself, and if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, you may perhaps want to swap north and south about when you call the directions and their associated elements.

This is the first of these books, and then next will contain the prayers, rituals, and so on from the second Wilde Grove Series.

I wish you all the greatest blessings on your way.

Prayers of The Wildwood

 

Prayer to the Goddess (God)

 

May the strength of your heart go with me,

wherever I need to go.

May I be guided through the wilderness,

protected through the storm.

May I follow your path 

through the eternal forest.

May healing and blessing be mine.

May compassion be in my heart

and my hands. 

(Morghan, The Gathering, Ch 17)

 

Our Sacred Mother

 

Our mother, whose body is the land,

Blessed be thy flesh.

As above, so it is below,

As it is without, so also it is within. 

Your bounty is also our own,

We are in service to your needs.

For compassion lives in our hearts

And kindness moves our hands.

For we are eternal and connected

And we grow in the spirit of love. 

So it is,

So it has always been, and so it shall remain,

World beyond time, 

World without end. 

 

Morghan & Winsome’s Prayer

 

Our Father, who art in Heaven.

Our Mother, whose body is the land,

Hallowed be thy name.

Blessed be thy flesh.

Thy Kingdom come, they will be done,

on earth as it is in Heaven.

As above, so it is below,

As it is without, so also it is within. 

Give us this day our daily bread,

And forgive us our trespasses as

We forgive those who trespass against us.

Your bounty is also our own,

We are in service to your needs.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

For compassion lives in our hearts and kindness moves our hands.

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory,

Forever and ever.

For we are eternal and connected and

We grow in the spirit of love.

So it is, so it has always been, and so shall it remain,

World beyond time,

World without end.

 

 

 

 

 

Prayers to the Elements

 

 

Four Element Blessing

 

Blessed am I, to carry the song of 

Water in this world with me. 

Blessed am I, to carry the song of

Wind with me. 

Blessed am I to stand upon this

Ground, where the trees dig deep

Towards each other. 

Blessed am I, to carry the spark 

Of the world in me, to feel the fire

Of its passion. 

(Morghan The Belonging, Ch34)

 

Four Directions Blessing

 

I hold myself in honour to you,

Earth, sky, sea.

I walk in balance between you,

World to world to world. 

 

Blessed water, blessed earth, air, & fire.

Spirits of the north, east, south, & west.

I greet you, in peace and blessing.

I am called to weave the world with you.

I am called to keep the weaving safe. 

May we be in peace. 

 

The Belonging. Erin, Ch 3)
