Random Poem:

Spiritual Birth

No longer being who I once was
And remembering to be who I truly am,
as I live the essence of a spirit old;
secrets now reveal what once was told.
Spiritual growth, reaches higher
Into worlds of angels, higher beings
endow with precious insights,
channelling ,through me their light.
Healing powers of reiki fire
Purify an embittered mind.
Spirit returns to the soul,
Ancestors speak truths of old.
I call to the north, earth’s love surrounds me
I call Eastern spirits to lift  my soul.
I call to the South, blazing fires make pure
I call to the west, cleansed by watery allure.
I offer love to Mother Earth,
Breathe as one with the universe.
Remembering all the gifts bestowed
Upon me, a chosen one from old.
Blessed Be
