Tuesday Prayer: A Blessing

Blessed Mother Blessing

My prayer for, and to, and over the crown of your life is this...

We lift you up so your soul can be seen by Mother Mercy,
she who checks doorways, sees through cracks
and into corners where souls often hide, seeking refuge.
She who is the Immaculate Heart sees you easily,
greets you warmly, remembers you with love,
for she is
the Mirror of Heaven,
the Tower of Ivory,
Obsidian Blade,
Star of the Waters,
Seat of Wisdom...

We lift you up so Blessed Mother can see
all that you need now
in order to bring goodness and contentment,
healing and health,
understanding and love
--to you and to your beloveds--
in every possible way.

And especially, may all these be given to you
in ways you can most easily see and understand...

and in ways you can put to immediate good use.

We lift you up because you were knitted up
in your earthly mother's womb by One Greater...
not only born already blessed...
but also born as a blessing on all of us...

Do not forget this,
for we have not forgotten you.
And neither and never has your Greater Mother.

Let you walk now forward into this day,
both deeply blessed and blessing others
with the magnitude of our Holy Mother's love. 

...which means in the old language--Let it be so.

--Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Untie the Strong Woman:  Blessed Mother's Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul
