Great Spirit - Morning Prayers

Oh Great Spirit

Let your voice whisper righteousness in our ears through the East Wind at the break of day.
Let us be blessed with love for all our brothers & sisters on Earth so we may truly live in peace.
Let us have good health mentally & physically to solve our problems and accomplish something for future generations.
Let us be sincere to ourselves and make the world a better place to live

        Aho Mitakuye Oyasin All My Relations

Great Spirit, I am Mother.

I was made by You so that the image of Your love
Could be brought into existence.
May I always carry with me
The sacredness of this honor.
Creator, I am Daughter.
I am the learner of the Traditions.
May I carry them forward
So that the Elders and Ancestors
Will be remembered for all time.
Maker-Of-All-Things, I am Sister.
Through me, may my brothers be shown
The manner in which I am to be respected.
May I join with my sisters in strength and power as a Healing Shield
So that they will no longer bear the stain of abuse.
 
Niskam, I am Committed Partner:
One who shares her spirit,
But is wise to remember never to give it away,
Lest it become lost,
And the two become less than one.
 
I am Woman.
Hear me.
        Welal'in.
        Ta'ho!

Oh, Great Spirit,

Whose voice I hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me.
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom. 

Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes
ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock. 

I seek strength, not to be superior to my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes,
so when life fades, as the fading sunset,

my spirit will come to you
without shame. 

        American Indian Lakota Chief Yellow Lark 

One with Tao

Yield and remain whole; 
Bend and remain straight.
Be empty and remain full.
Be worn and remain anew.
Own little and be replete.
Own much and be restless.
Therefore the Sage embraces the ONE
And sets an example for the whole world.
He does not display himself,
And so he shines;
He does not defend himself,
And so he is distinguished;
He does not swagger,
And so he never stumbles;
He does not exult,
And so he excels.
He does not contend,
And so the world cannot contend with him.
The ancient adage "Yield and remain whole"
Is not empty assertion.
Be truly whole
And all things will come to you.

   Tao Te Ching

Nitche Tai Tai

Nitche Tai Tai, N U Y
Oro Nika Oro Nika
Hey Hey, Hey Hey
Ooo Aui

Translation:

O Great Mother, Mother of the Waters
We call on you, waters of our birth
Waters of our sustenance
Waters that cleanse us on our death
Waters of life.

(Repeat during fire ceremonies to drums and rattles)

Note: According to Mary Blankenship . . .
"As far as I can tell, the song calls to the spirits of water.  Iím not concerned about a direct translation as the sounds and the energy are what matter.  A water song may seem strange for a fire ceremony but in shamanism, the combination of earth, air, fire and water creates magic.  In that place healing and transformation can occur."
