Ancestor Prayer for Samhain

graveyard.JPGAncestor Prayer

When you were born
Earth became your body
Stone became your bone
Sea became your blood
Sun became your eye
Moon became your mind
Wind became your breath.

When you passed to the Otherworld
Your breath became Wind
Your mind became Moon
Your eye became Sun,
Your blood became Sea
Your bone became Stone
Your body became Earth.

When we were born you did the same for us.
You called forth the Earth and Stones.
The Sea arose and the Sun descended.
The Moon shone down and the Winds sang.
For those to come we shall do as you did for us
When we are gone, we shall do as you did before.

-Michael Dangler

I wear a lot of hats. I’m a writer, designer, and motion graphics artist. A Taurus sun/Scorpio moon/Leo rising. An ENFP, HSP, and all-around bleeding heart. A folk medicine anthropologist and purveyor of tiny bottles of plant magic. I co-own Baskervillain Studios with my husband, John, and we live in a funky little enclave five-ish miles outside Atlanta with our kitty, Magical Mr. Murphy O. Milam. I started my blog because I’m fascinated by herbal medicine, natural remedies, essential oils, and DIY beauty. And because when the zombie apocalypse hits, damn it, I’m gonna need a trade. I’ll pull my weight, I promise. I write about my ongoing journey using herbs, Young Living essential oils, and traditional foods as a way to take ownership of my own health and wellness. I post recipes, herbal and folk remedies, and DIY skin and beauty care made from natural ingredients. And a little kitchen witchery sneaks in now and again.
