Protection Chant

Evylyn Rose

Goddess shinning bright above

Shield me from all harm

May all I encounter be of love

And those that aren't be disarmed.

So mote it be.

Invocation Before Sleep

Lady of the Moon,

Lord of the Sun,

Protect me and mine,

Now day is done.

Untitled 1 [short to the Elements]

Fire Faerie

Fire, earth, water, and air

Lead me down a path of love

Spirit show me how to fly

Lead me down a path of trust.

Invocation to the Goddess and God

Valerie (as found in The Spiral Dance)

Kouros seedsower, Kore underground

Leaflight, bloodroot, grain reborn

Turning the Wheel we keep you in mind,

Lovelight, spermshine, flower & thorn.

Spinning the Web we call you forth,

Turning the Wheel with ageless love.

Earth Her body, Air Her breath,

Fire Her spirit, Water Her flow,

Transformed in the halls of Death,

Life on life we come and go.

Spinning the Web we call you forth,

Turning the Wheel with ageless love.

Kouros Horned One, Kore above,

Stralight, heart's joy, ancient mirth

Spinning the Web we call you forth,

Turning the Wheel with ageless love.

Untitled 2 [detailed to the Elements]

Fire Faerie

Fire blaze into the night

Glory rise in your smoke

Following the windy gales

Forced to leap skyward

Air blow in mighty gusts

Weaving paths within...

The trees of the forest

And the lowest valleys

Earth shift your weight

Move with great strength

From you living things will sprout

And grow forth in the rain

Water spill out of the ocean

Lap gently on the shore

Crush life with tidal waves

Create life with rain

Elements protect me

Nurture me as well

Teach me how to live

And guide me to love


Evylyn Rose

Come join in a rite with me

In honor of the passing of our Lord.

Of the Goddess, He was born,

And from Her love, He grew.

As Their powers waxed, They joined.

Together They created all the life we have.

But now our Lady weeps

As Her lover begins to sleep.

Come join in a rite with me

In honor of the passing of our Lord.

Shed a tear to show your love,

But do not worry, stay filled with joy.

For even though he has passed away this night,

He will join us in our Yule rite.

Come join in a rite with me

In honor of the passing of our Lord.

Book of Shadows Blessing


Elements protect this book

From wondering eyes and prying look,

And fill it with Thine ancient power

In this right and ready hour.

A Short Protective Chant

Scott Cunningham

Visualize a triple circle of white light around your body while chanting:

I am protected by your might

O gracious Goddess,

Day and night.


Thrice around the circle's bound.

Evil sink into the ground.

Rain Prayer


Great Goddess hear my plea,

Grant the wish I chant to Thee:

Bring clouds both large and gray,

Send pouring and gentle rains my way.

Spare me from the wrathful sun.

As I will it, so let it be done!

To Build Inner Strength

Autumn Raindancer

I call the light,

Of golden rays,

To seek protection,

Thus I pray,

Heavenly forces at my side,

Angles, Sages, Spirit Guides,

Or wolves walk with cunning skill,

Come to my aid,

Come at my will,

Black bird soaring light my path,

So I am victim to no one's wrath,

And when my journey knows success,

All those who aid me,

Goddess Bless!

A Children's Grace

Oak Wren

Earth who gives to us our food,

Sun who makes it ripe and good,

Dearest earth and dearest sun,

Joy and Love for all you've done.

A Children's Bedtime Prayer


Bright light, White light

Take away my fright

Don't let the darkness scare me,

There's nothing here to fear.

Let me sleep the whole night long,

For I am safe in here.

White Light, Bright Light

Protect me through the night.

This should be done cupping hands as if holding a ball of white light. Toss ball in air and imagine it bursting to fill the whole room with protection.

Prayer [connection]

Diane Mariechild

Let me sink deep within the source of creativity

Deep within my originality

Let me connect with all that is divine in me

My power to imagine, to create anew

Let me surrender now to the sea of my greater consciousness.

A Beauty Chant


I summon the Goddess far and wide,

'Of true beauty,' I have cried.

To lend a face prettier than all,

Shall make me brave and stand tall.

Offering of Thanks

submitted by Otis Blackledge

We have so much before us

and for this we are thankful.

We have so many blessings,

and for this we are thankful.

There are others not so fortunate,

and by this we are humbled.

We shall make an offering in their name

to the gods who watch over us,

that those in need are someday

as blessed as we are this day.

Group Blessing for Full Moon

Diane Mariechild

Tonight is the night of the full moon

The night of Selene--wise and knowing

Tonight we connect with her power and it is ours.

Tonight we vibrate with the pulse of the moon

Knowing, sensing and feeling our connections

We flow in many dimensions.

Our eyes are opened and we see with clarity our visions

Our ears are opened and we hear the voices of our souls

Our mouths are opened and we speak with wisdom

Our hearts are opened and we are filled with love

Our wombs are opened and we are in touch with the source of our creativity

Our feet are opened and we walk on our own true path

Our hands are opened and our power is manifest.
