Blessing for A Parent’s Body

As part of my work as Priest/ess of the Body-Temple in CAYA Coven, this year I will be sharing a number of blessings. This is the first one.

Blessing for the Bodies of Parents

Parents have special joys and strains put on their bodies. This blessing is for them. I strongly encourage parents to find someone they love to give them this blessing- a friend, a partner, a lover, a family member. You are doing a lot already for your child. In this, let yourself receive.

If you are performing this blessing for a parent, put your hands on their shoulders and envision warmth flowing from you to them as you speak.

May your legs be ready to run, jump, and crouch
May your back be strong
May your arms be ready to carry and hold
May your vulva/phallus/whatever word you prefer
find pleasure rather than fertility until you are ready to bring another child into this world
May your eyes see clearly
May your mouth speak truly
May your heart be ever full of love
