Fall Body Blessing

By Melissa ra Karit

As the Wheel turns to fall, here is a blessing to bring your body fully into the season.

Fall Body Blessing

I bless your feet with the relief of fall

May you have time to put them up

I bless your arms and legs with strength

May you have the endurance to bring the harvest in

I bless your back and shoulders with ease

May you release what no longer serves you and be lighter for it

I bless your voice with the silence of fall

May you find peace in being quiet for a time

I bless your gut with the satisfaction of fall

May you uncoil and rest easy with the knowledge that the fruits of your labor are coming to you

I bless your skin

May you be alive to the shifting of the wind, rain, and sun

I bless all your senses with the beauty of fall

May your eyes drink in the rust red glory of leaves

May your tongue taste the richness of slowly roasted vegetables and heart stews

May your ears hear the wailing of the wind and the crackling of the leaves

May you touch the plumpness of grapes, the soft crumble of leaves, and the thickness of fog

May your nose smell spice and woodsmoke

I bless your heart

May you be aglow with all that fall brings!
