Several times this week, I found myself either unable to sleep, or woken in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Each time I was drawn to my altar, where I would stand in the darkness and light candles. I would then sit in a comfortable position and meditate on my life, my path, and what I expected for the future. After I felt comforted, I would say a prayer to the goddesses of my hearth, asking for their guidance and aid. I would then take my offerings outside and stand barefoot in the darkness, listening to the world around me before making my offering. The wind was cool, but the world was alive around me. It was a very interesting experience.
Goddesses of my hearth,
Goddesses of my heart,
I look to you for inspiration,
as both leaders and role models.
Demeter, you who love your child unconditionally,
and show me the gifts of motherhood
Athena, you who helped so many heroes,
and show me how to help those in need.
Hecate, goddess of the crossroads,
you help me to find the right path when I feel lost.
Aphrodite, you who love wholeheartedly
and show me how to love in turn.
Artemis, goddess of the hunt,
you show me strength and independence.
I thank you all for your gifts and for your guidance.
