Ancient Celtic Blessing for Balance and Protection

Ancient Celtic Blessing for Balance and Protection

This beautiful prayer has been used for hundreds of years to promote spiritual equilibrium, to awaken the speaker to the great beauty of this world, and to ask for protection from the Great Mystery.

I Arise Today
Attributed to Saint Patrick, translated by Kuno Meyer.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth
Firmness of rock.
