Move back to the center:

I greet the Spirits Within

For you are welcome here.
 

Part 2- Preparing the self

Sit in the center facing whichever direction you feel most comfortable. Visualize or touch each body part as you say the following:
 

I bless my Mind

So that it will always be open to understanding.
 

I bless my Eyes

So that they will always be able to see the truth.
 

I bless my Ears

 So that they will always hear what is said.
 

I bless my Mouth

So that it will always speak honestly.
 

I bless my Heart

So that it will always be full of love.
 

I bless my Hands

So that they will always build for the good of all.
 

I bless my Womb

So that it will always spark creativity.
 

I bless my Feet

So that they will always walk in balance.
 

I bless my Soul

So that it will always guide me home.
 

Take time to listen to yourself and know that the answer you seek is within you. Be open and let the answer flow freely on this journey within.
