Praise Demeter full of life
I am with thee
Honored and humbled
By life's seasons

Sacred is the fruit
Of thy womb

Holy Demeter
Mother of Life
Guide our paths
Now and through strife
into peace

Blessing Of A Traveler

Blessing Of A Traveler Cover
Preparation: the chalice should be filled with wine, anointing oil is needed.

The person being blessed stands in front of the altar with their back to it. They cross their wrists while holding them close to their breast. The Priest(ess) stands in front of them and says:

"Artemis, queen of night
In all your beauty bright,
Shine on us here,
And with your silver beam
Unlock the gates of dream;
Rise bright and clear.

On Earth and sky and sea,
Your magic mystery
Its spell shall cast,
Wherever leaf may grow,
Wherever tide may flow,
Till all be past.

O secret queen of power,
At this enchanted hour
We ask your boon.

May fortune's favor fall
Upon true witches all,
O Lady Moon!

The Priest(ess) kneels before her and gives her the Five Fold Kiss; that is, s/he kisses her on both feet, both knees, womb or phallus, both breasts, and the lips, starting with the right of each pair. S/He says, as s/he does this:

"Blessed be thy feet, that have brought thee in these ways.
Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the sacred altar.
Blessed be thy sex, without which we would not be.
Blessed be thy breasts, formed in strength and in beauty.
Blessed be thy lips, that shall utter the Sacred Names."

For the kiss on the lips, they embrace, length to length, with their feet touching each others. When the priest(ess) reaches the womb, the recipient spreads her arms wide, and the same after the kiss on the lips. Then the Priest(ess) touches her with his right forefinger on her right breast, left breast, and womb, repeats the set and finally the right breast. The Priest(ess) steps backwards. The Priest(ess) then makes an X mark on the initiates forehead, breast and genitals while saying:

"May your mind be free.
May your heart be free.
May your body be free."

The Priest(ess) holds the chalice close to their heart and feeds power into the wine. When they can feel it glow, it is ready. S/He says:

"All life is your own,
All fruits of the Earth
Are fruits of your womb,

Your union, your dance.
Lady and Lord,
We thank you for blessings and abundance.

Join with us, Feast with us, Enjoy with us!
Blessed Be."

The Priest(ess) and the person share the wine. The priest(ess)says:

"Artemis, protector of youths,
Look down upon this person,
Protect them and help them.

Athena, grey eyed goddess of wisdom,
Give this person the understanding to chose the right course.

Manannan and Poseidon, keepers and watchers of deep waters,
Grant fair winds, and following seas as they travel through your

Mercury, god of travellers,
Protect this person from those who would beset them.

The Priest(ess) says:

"When you are frightened, remember this chant:

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turnmy inner eye to see it's path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

"Blessed Be"

Final kiss on forehead.

How Far

How Far Cover How far do you walk
and where do you go
for it happens so often
this walk that you do
that it's peaceful to know
it is only for you.
While on this Earth-walk
our conscious becomes alive
and it's Through this awareness
that we can survive.
So, I ask you now in all seriousness
where is this place of Trust and Innocence
that we are told so often, Really exists.
So try not to struggle and be balanced in Thought
for it doesn't matter at all where you will start
The secret you'll find is to stay True to Yourself
so you can be you and nobody else.
Our lives are a gift for us to embrace
So my question to Thee?
Is why do we hate.
I don't know why
It's so hard to explain
The Beauty and Peace even the Pain.

(c. Roy Rindom, January 26, 1993)
