Aboriginal blessing

May the fire be in your thoughts,
Making them true, good and just,
May it protect you from the evil one.

May the fire be in your eyes,
May it open your eyes to see what is good in life.
We ask that the fire may protect you
from what is not rightfully yours.

May the fire be on your lips,
so that you may speak the Truth in kindness;
that you may serve and encourage others.
May it protect you from speaking evil.

May the fire be in your ears.
We pray that you may hear with a deep listening
so that you may hear the flow of water,
and of creation, and the dreaming.

May you be protected from gossip and from those things
that harm and break down your family.
May the fire be in your arms and hands
So that you may be of service and build up love.

May the fire protect you from all violence.
May the fire be in your whole being – in your legs and feet,
Enabling you to walk the earth with respect and care;
So that you may walk ways of goodness and truth
And be protected from walking away from what is true.
