Great Spirit, Mother Earth

Great Spirit, Mother Earth, 

Powers of the four directions, 

my ancestors, 

And all those who love me, 

hear me now. 

This is a prayer of thanksgiving for the miracle of life. 

When I awake in the morning, Great Spirit, And I take a breath of morning air, I look toward the sky, searching the morning light For your face, 

And when I find it, a radiance comes to me, So beautiful and so blissful That I cannot put words to the gratefulness That is in my heart. 

There is much pain and confusion in this world, And oftentimes I lose my way, And I know not what to do. 

Then I sit in silence, and I listen To the high north wind in the pine trees, 

And you sing to me. 

I open my eyes and I look at the flowers And the miracle of beauty that they are. 

Again I see your face, And I wonder at my ignorance. 

So days go by, and I follow my path of heart, 

And I pray to you, Great Spirit, Grateful and strong from your grace. 

The four-legged and the winged ones Bring joy to my life, And I thank you for their presence all around me. Their purity of being reminds me of you, And I know that they are mirrors, Shiny and brilliant with your reflection. 

I know that much gives away so that I may live. The sacred give-away I receive and return, 

Ever grateful for your flowing power within me. 

Without you, I could not see the beauty That you have given us. 

I feel the sun on my face, and I know your warmth, 

And I know that somehow everything is perfect. 

I give thanks as I walk my path of beauty. 

For you I live all the days of my life. 

Ho!

Chant for Calling the Elements

Chant for Calling the Elements

I call upon Earth, the power to make.
I call upon Air, the power to take.
I call upon Fire, the power to grow.
I call upon Water, the power to flow.
(Circling deosil, chant)
Green power and gold,
red power and blue,
Here the power we do unfold,
Quarters’ might, strong and true.
Four the winds to weave the round,
‘tween the worlds the power be bound.
Till we send it at the last,
Guardians keep it strong and fast.

–From Rhiannon Ryall’s West Country Wicca

Acorn Protection Chant/Talisman

Acorn Protection Chant/Talisman

The acorn especially is well suited for magicks of protection. Obtain an acorn or two (pine cones can substitute in a pinch, be sure though to alter the spell accordingly) and say:

“Acorn true, acorn seed

Hush and listen to my need:

Protection from all harm I ask

Fail me not in this task.”

Bless Acorn and empower as per usual method; Carry acorn in pocket or purse.

A Cleansing Chant

A CLEANSING CHANT

Uphold the rules of the Wiccan Rede.
Be high in spirit ye shall succeed.
Power of the Elements Five,
Will help Mother Nature stay alive.
From grains of Earth to the moving Air.
Past the burning Fire that magick flares.
Flow with Water, lakes, and streams;
Around the Spirit’s aura and dreams.

Binding Chant

Binding Chant

 

Come ye as the charm is made!

Queen of heaven, Queen of hell,

Horned Hunter of the night

Lend your power unto the spell,

And work our will by magic rite!

By all the power of land and sea,

By all the might of moon and sun

I call the Earth to bind my spell.

Air to speed it well.

Bright as Fire shall it glow.

Deep as tide of Water flow.

Count the elements fourfold,

In the fifth the spell shall hold.

Protection Chants (Part 1)

White Light Protection

While chanting, visualize three white rings surrounding you.  One ring around your head, another around your center, and a third around your ankles:

Three times the rings go round

All evil shall stay on the ground

If any evil is near this place

It cannot enter my safety space

Three times three

So mote it be

Personal Space Protection 

Divine Goddess If negativity dwells within this space

Make it leave, this is my personal place

Introduction [to Chanting]

[This is to go along with a series of chants by the same author Lady Gianne. I will be posting them periodically.]

These chants can be chanted any time you feel the need.  You can either speak the chant out loud or quietly in your head.  The chant will work either way, it is just as strong chanted silently as it is spoken.   Chants can be used is a variety of ways.  Many spells and rituals either require some language, or the caster feels adding some personal words would add to and strengthen their intent.  Many practitioners have no problem coming up with their own chant while others need a bit of inspiration from time to time.

You can repeat a chant as many times as you want, or simply say it once.  If you are chanting for protection, keep repeating the chant until you feel safe.  The same goes for raising energy.  Chant your energizing words over and over until your energy is raised to the level you need.    For example, the Food Blessing chant:   Oh Mother Earth, we thank you so For the food and beverage you bestow For your protection and your
