I ask the living planet, Mother Earth,
I ask for forgiveness of my ignorance, my greed,
the endless taking from your resources.
I ask for forgiveness of all my actions of taking
without thanks or gratitude for all the
water, food, trees, and all your abundant resources.
I ask for forgiveness of not giving back
as the indigenous people
have when they used your resources.
I ask for forgiveness for not listening
to the warnings you gave us so long ago.
I have taken you for granted. I have not honored your sacredness.
I have separated myself from Nature, believing I am in control.
I now realize I do not control you.
Surrounded by endless smoke, fires, drought,
storms, floods, tornadoes, and earthquakes,
I am humbled by your strength.
I stand together in the Divine Feminine,
to ask for forgiveness and to call on you,
Goddess and God, Angels, and Love
to change my thoughts, words, and actions,
that I may work to restore the damages
and support your balance and well-being.
I ask this in the name of all I hold Holy/Whole.
