Native American Smoke Blessing

Native American Turtle Drum

Smoke plays a key part in practically every religion. The following blessing published by Nick Polizzi on the Sacred Science website, can be done while burning sage, sweetgrass, incense, or myrhh.

Oh Great Spirit,
I raise smoke to the four sacred winds and the four corners, 
so that the blessings can reach
my brothers and sisters in every corner
of Great Mother Earth,
while the smoke disperses all over Father Sky, 
lit by Mother Moon.

Let the smoke pass to each their blessing 
and do away with all sorrows and unhappiness, 
fill their homes with love,
and the light of your wisdom. 

If any be sick, cure them
If they have needs, fulfill them.
Protect them from all evil.
Please Father,
keep them well in good health,
give them long life and wealth.
Give them all your love as they love you.

They can give testimony to your power and mercy,
and most important your love. 

Oh Great Spirit,
I love you with all my heart
as I love my brothers and sisters all. 
I am your servant and theirs.

I ask for only one thing –
give me strength 
 to keep going on doing
as I do on this spirit path. 

And so it is! Amen.

Stay curious,

Nick Polizzi
