Native American Blessings and Windchimes

NativeIndianBlessing

We here at Eco Wind Chimes love reading your emails and stories about how special our products are to you. We recently received a very nice letter from a lady who performed a Native American blessing on her wind chimes. She said every time the chimes chime- she knows the blessing is spreading into the air and among her neighbors. What a nice thought. For those of you who are interested in this tradition, the blessing is below.

Earth teach me stillness

as the grasses are stilled with light.

Earth teach me suffering

as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility

as blossoms are humble with beginning.

Earth Teach me caring

as the mother who secures her young.

Earth teach me courage

as the tree which stands alone.

Earth teach me limitation

as the ant which crawls on the ground.

Earth teach me freedom

as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth teach me resignation

as the leaves which die in the fall.

Earth teach me regeneration

as the seed which rises in the spring.

Earth teach me to forget myself

as melted snow forgets its life.

Earth teach me to remember kindness

as dry fields weep in the rain.
