Centering Directions for a Sacred Circle or Women’s Circle

Great Spirit of Light, come to me out of the East with the power of the rising sun.

Let there be light in my words, let there be light on my path that I walk.

Let me remember always that you give the gift of a new day.

And never let me be burdened with sorrow by not starting over again.

Great Spirit of Creation, send me the warm and soothing winds from the South.

Comfort me and caress me when I am tired and cold.

Unfold me like the gentle breezes that unfold the leaves on the trees.

As you give to all the earth your warm, moving wind, give to me, so that I may grow close to you in warmth.

Great Life-Giving Spirit, I face the West, the direction of sundown.

Let me remember everyday that the moment will come when my sun will go down.

Never let me forget that I must fade into you.

Give me a beautiful color, give me a great sky for setting, so that when it is my time to meet you, I can come with glory.

Great Spirit of Love, come to me with the power of the North.

Make me courageous when the cold wind falls upon me.

Give me strength and endurance for everything that is harsh, everything that hurts, everything that makes me squint.

Let me move through life ready to take what comes from the north.

Great Spirt of below, the roots that reach deep into Mother Earth, thank you for giving us sustenance, let us connect with you and feel your stability as we breathe deeply.

Great Spirit of above, the Stars and Planets, the stardust that is a part of every cell of our body, from which we came and to which we will return.  Let us always look up with wonder and gratitude to bringing us to this spot that we stand.

Woman did not create the web of life, she is but a strand in it.

Whatever woman does to the web, she does to herself.

To the place inside us where the 6 directions meet, let me live each day from a sense of balance.
