A DIFFERENT KIND OF BLESSING

 
This is from Caitlin Matthews Celtic Devotional. I figure I can use all the help I can get. The feeling that wherever you walk you are protected and blessed the world around you. I'm fortunate to be in an area that's closer to the natural world than many in this country.
 
BLESSING OF THE NINE ELEMENTS
 
May you go forth under the strength of heaven,
under the light of sun,
under the radiance of moon;
 
May you go forth under the splendor of fire,
with the speed of lightning,
with the swiftness of wind;
 
May you go forth supported by the depth of sea,
by the stability of earth,
by the firmness of rock;
 
May you be surrounded and encircled,
above, below, and about,
with the protection of the nine elements.
