I smoor the fire of my soul, as the
Maiden would smoor.
Peace be upon my soul,
peace be to all creatures,
peace be to all upon this planet,
peace be to all that is and was and will be.
Preserve my soul in peace this night,
that it may flame forth brightly
in the still light of dawn.
Walker of the Night Stars,
Guardian of the Hearth,
Keeper of the Deep Places,
May I sleep in you this night.
(Caitlin Matthews - Celtic Devotional)
I was reminded today that it is just as important for me stay in contact with my spirituality as it is to tune into my body, during this learning process.
There are many times when sleep is elusive, but if I turn inward, quieting my mind, then all is well.
