Morning Prayer

IMG_0141While walking along a woodland path at sunrise:

Good morning Grandfather Sun, Umpeywi. How good to see your bright shining face and share the warmth of your light. I am so grateful for this new day in all of its glory. I love the way you illuminate the treetops with your sweet morning lemon colored light gracefully, gradually bringing color into the world. Your light is reflected in the warmth of my heart.

Taku Skan Skan your deep infinite blue invites my spirit to soar. Your blue beingness like a protective egg embraces this beautiful place we are given to call home. I appreciate your calling me into the mystery of the infinite.

Thank you for you Grandmother Earth. My body is of your body. You hold me lovingly nourishing my soul. I love walking on your body feeling the solidity underneath my feet. I caress you as I walk through this life, gently loving you, honoring you, respecting you just as I have learned to do for myself.

And you sacred Iyan, the sacred bones of the Earth, your crystalline structure is reflected in the crystalline structure of my bones through which our energies flow.

My body is of your body, my bones are liken to your bones, my spirit is reflected in your spirit, my heart is powerful and bright and warm like yours. We are one and the same.

Sweet Tatey your gentle touch brushes against my cheek refreshing me. Hanwi, while the Sun lights our day you hold the lantern tall at night illuminating the forest floor with your gentle light and vibrant energy.

Nature my heart sings to you. I so appreciate the beauty you have created. It is my heart’s desire to offer my beauty back to you today in the words I speak, the actions I take and the emotions that I express.

Blessed Be

As a holistic clinical psychologist, I view therapy as a deeply spiritual process that occurs within the Primordial Field of Awareness without prejudiced toward any spiritual tradition. The process of therapy involves the whole person: body, mind, spirit and emotional body and a relationship with Nature. It is a process of becoming more self-aware. I enjoy inviting clients to take a journey of self-discovery, examining old ways of being which no longer feel right, changing to new ways and perhaps opening up to new possibilities not before imagined. The heart-centered approach helps to facilitate this process from a positive and life affirming foundation. It not only deeply affects how someone feels about his or herself but naturally moves into how one relates to and is responded to by family, friends, workplace environments and home communities. My office is located on 62 acres of beautiful Southern Maryland woodland. Prior to beginning my day I spend time meditating and connecting with Nature, taking particular care to be centered in my heart. I have written one other book, Living Life as a Prayer: a guide to healing and wholeness, which is available on Amazon.com. This book invites you on a sacred journey of self-discovery. The ways and means to take that journey are demonstrated through poignant stories, illustrative poems, prayers from a variety of traditions, rituals, lively visualizations and step-by-step guidelines. All of these support the basic premise: you are the living prayer that is offered every moment of every day to all of life everywhere through the words you speak, actions you take, feelings you express and thoughts that you think. This book is a guide to help you consciously construct that prayer. Living Life as a Prayer helps you create and manifest a way of life that honors your natural state of being. This natural way is to live in the flow of the grace of Divine energy and to move into the world from the place of a loving heart. Your loving heart not only embraces other people and all of life, but yourself as well. It has been said, “love yourself enough to love another.” You are the prayer that is being offered to the Great Spirit, to the unnamed force that runs through all of life. You are the healing force in the Universe. A bumper sticker reads, “World peace begins at home.” Home is in your own heart. You have the power to bring peace to the world by creating peace in your own heart. Part of the process of becoming a living prayer that you are comfortable with and happy to manifest is to learn to open your heart without fear. There is a 2 CD set filled with helpful meditations, a DVD illustrating three movement meditations and a workbook that follows the chapters in the book offering a deeper personal exploration of the principles discussed.
