ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS

Whatever your Christmas traditions may be, I wish you happy holidays and I share the following, taken from my young niece’s blog, RAISING A BOY. She and her husband are parents of a special needs child – a blessing to all of us.

Below you will find a call, a prayer, to be mindful of the seasons – their ebb and flow, their endings and beginnings – to remember that, as with energy, there is no lack.

Celebrate your abundance!

PS  In the next few weeks, I’ll be posting my 2012 schedule for monthly Reiki I training workshops for new students and for monthly Reiki Shares (for practitioners of Reiki).

O God of all seasons and senses, grant us the sense of your timing to submit gracefully and rejoice quietly in the turn of the seasons.
In this season of short days and long nights,
of grey and white and cold,
teach us the lessons of endings;
children growing, friends leaving, loved ones dying,
grieving over,
grudges over,
blaming over,
excuses over.
O God, grant us a sense of your timing.
In this season of short days and long nights,
of grey and white and cold,
teach us the lessons of beginnings;
that such waitings and endings may be the starting place,
a planting of seeds which bring to birth what is ready to be born—
something right and just and different,
a new song, a deeper relationship, a fuller love—
in the fullness of your time.
O God, grant us the sense of your timing.  Amen.
