A Faerie Haven: Living in Myth, Being Magic

For some people, magic isn't something they do, it is what they are. This blog focuses less on theory and more on lyrical mysticism, applied spellcrafting, experiential awareness of Divinity, and related topics. A haven for you who long to become your myth and live your poem. Faerie tales do come true.

Prayer to Create a Haven

Whatever difficulties occur in my life, tragic or minor, I can get too caught up in them, so I need a haven.

Mind you, I'm not suggesting anyone bury their head in the sand about awful facts, forsake people whom those terrible facts impact, refrain from action to keep one's situation from worsening, or ignore difficult feelings. I am saying I can dwell on awful situations to the degree it hurts my mental, physical, psychic, and spiritual health really seriously. I need an inner haven to maintain well-being. 

So I try to focus on the moment, which is where I find the Goddess, Her power, and Her care for me. The present moment is where I can find peace, beauty, magic, and laughter—laughter even amidst tragedy.

 I wrote this prayer to center myself into the moment:

Thank you for this moment—it is You.

Thank you for this moment—it is a haven.

Thank You for my toes,

which are You. 

Thank You for my nose,

which is You. 

Thank You for my glows,

which are You.

Thank You for my fingertips, 

which are You.

Thank You for my wit, 

which is You. My sense of humor—it too is a haven.

Thank you for my beautiful friends.

Thank You for all beauty

because You give all beauty,

and all beauty is You.

    And thank you - for you. I will share your prayer with my wife Ravyn. She's having a little trouble reading just now, so I will read it to her.
