I open my heart to my ancestral guiding spirits,
those who lived well and died well and met the challenges of their lives.
May their presence guide me on the right path to live well
and meet the challenges of my life.
I open my heart to Hanuman
and to his devotion, strength of purpose, and commitment.
May his presence support my dedication and commitment to my life's work
and to the service of my community.
I open my heart to Hekate
and to the light of her torches that illuminate the dark paths.
May her presence lead me to make decisions at the crossroads of life
and to step safely into the unknown future.
I open my heart to Oshun
and to her beauty, sweetness, and joy.
May her presence lift the burdens from my soul and the souls of all who need relief
and fill our lives with love and joy.
I open my heart to Dionysus
and to his wildness and vital generative life force.
May his presence fill my day with the ecstasy and boundlessness
of life triumphant and vibrant.
With these spirits around me, inside me, and guiding me,
I walk into this day with love, confidence, and purpose.
