Elemental Prayer for Balance
 
Come to me air, so fresh and clean,
Great mental power - keep my thoughts
Sharp and keen.
Bring creativity - bring clarity too.
Lend your positive aspects to all that I do.
 
Come to me Water, so flowing and free,
Lend compassion, and love, and gentility.
Grant understanding and tempers,
Please soothe -
And life's little problems, please help
Me to smooth.
 
Come to me Fire, so warm and so bright.
As I walk through my life, my pathway,
Please light.
Please help me to live and to love
With pure zest -
Standing up for the Truth,
When I'm put to the test.
 
Come to me Earth, so rich and so moist,
Bestow, please, Your gifts of serene peace and joy.
Grant Your stability and ethical ways,
So I may help others, the rest of my days.
 
Durga, please come, and work with these four
And balance Their aspects within me once more.
Transform my life, for You hold the key
To chaning me into that which I should be.
 
Elements of all that live and shall be,
Please spin your spell in pure harmony -
Weaving the threads of my life with ease,
And stitching its fabric with Blessed Bes.

Balance Chant
 
As within, so without
My harmony exists throughout.
I am one with both these worlds
Withing the two my body twirls.

Leadership Prayer
 
Leaders of the Ancient Ones --
Gods and Goddesses of Moon and Sun.
Aid me as I make my way
On the path of learship this day.
Grant that I be fair and just --
A leader that my charges trust
Grant that I be strong but kind
And let no glory my eyes blind.
Help me work towards the good of all,
Making sharp decisions and judgement calls.
I ask You, show me how to lead --
As I will, so mote it be!

Chant for Liberation

Feline Goddess, Cat-like Bast,
Give me what I need at last.
Scratch though mental knots that bind,
Bring independance to my mind.
Claw through ropes that hold me tight,
Bring liberation to my life.
Help me let go of what is old
And venture forth, reborn and bold.
Help me live my life in truth.
Bast, I ask these things of You.

And to HEr we shall return,
Like a drop of rain,
Flowing to the ocean.
One thing becomes another,
In the Mother,
In the Mother. / /

All that falls shall rise again.

All that dies shall be reborn. / /
