A shamanic prayer based on Native American Shamanism
4 January 2023
Prayer is a very personal thing, and nobody should be told how to pray. Some people prefer to pray in groups, compounding the energy of all individuals. Others prefer to pray alone, quietly.
The view of the shaman is that every action is a prayer, every statement, every moment of your existence on this earth is an opportunity to honor the Divine Energy, Great Spirit, God, or whatever we choose to call him/her/it.
This can be quite daunting, but if you think about it, it’s nothing more than a calling to live your life according to your integrity, who you really are, the essence of your nature. This is something we should all strive to do, especially if we’ve chosen to follow a spiritual path, to go within.
But still, as humans, there’s a need to interact, converse with God, to show gratitude, and honor the many gifts we’ve received. Below is an example of a simple shamanic prayer, based loosely on Native American shamanism:
I recognize and accept the divine
connection between body and spirit,
my wisdom and sight,
my truth and integrity,
and my love.
I honor you, Grandfather Sun,
for the light and warmth, you give us.
I honor you, Grandmother Moon,
for the wisdom and patience, you give us.
I honor you Father Sky,
for your warm embrace,
and Mother Earth,
for the way you nurture us.
I honor the Seven Directions,
North, East, South, West,
Up above, Down below and Inside.
The Four Totems, the Eagle, the Hound,
the Bear and the Bison, I honor you.
I honor the seven people,
the Stone People, the Standing People,
the Winged People, the Finned People,
the Four-legged People and
the Two-legged people,
the Many and No-legged People.
I honor the Thunder Beings,
bringers of rain,
and the Great Star Nation,
with their Sky brothers and Sisters.
I honor you in the name of
my Angels, my Animals,
my Ancestors and my Spirit Guides,
and I thank you for this path
and the chance to grow Love.
This prayer is just an example of how you, as one who is on the spiritual path, can go within and honor the Divine Power or God. I always use it before I meditate, do some yoga, or write something.
It can be performed when one engages in many activities from exercise to gardening and other hobbies. It’s based upon love, faith, gratitude, and the gifts we have been given.
May you be Love, May you be Light, May you be Aligned…
