Prayers & Chants
Every Morning we wake
up and say....
"Good Morning Sun!!!
It's Great to be Alive!!!
And thanks for those rays, I needed that"
Sun Salutation ...with prayer
(Stretch arms up above your head)
Good morning sun, sacred are thy holy
names and forms
(Touch the earth with your hands)
Good morning Mother earth
(right leg back pick up the earth with your hands)
Give us this day our daily bread
(lift into crescent moon asana)
And may the grandmother moon protect us
in our dreams at night
(left leg back into push up position)
May we be as strong as the mountain
(knees on the floor, chest and chin on the floor, bum in
Yet humble as the lowly worm that crawls
upon thy belly
(elbows and tummy on the floor, chest up)
May we be as eternal as the sphinx
(slide hands back under the shoulders and lift up spine
Yet wise as the serpent that moves up
(curl the toes under into down dog)
May we be as loyal as the downward facing
(right leg forward between hands, lift into crescent moon
But above all, may we be as free as the
eagle that flies in thy most beloved sky.
(left leg forward in Tadasana hands on the earth)
Thank you Mother, thank you
(both arms up and stretch up to the sky, up on the toes)
And thank you O great spirit of the sky
(arms down in prayer position)
Peace on earth
