Prayer for Wellness Oh great spirit, grandfather, grandmother, spirit of the East, shine the light of new days on our lives to open our eyes to what we cannot see in the darkness of Dysfunction.

Spirit of the South, tie us to all the peoples who walk this sacred path to the spirit within us, our source of life and support.

Spirit of the West, help us with the power of the thunder beings, to admit the pain that has led us to shut out your wisdom.

Spirit of the North, open our eyes to the memories of our ancestors to the ways of relating in traditional harmony. Help us accept our history that we may be wise. Help us to use our memories to revive our ways. Help us to use our vision to see new paths clearly. Help us to accept our spirits are our strength. To stand with feet firmly planted on Mother Earth, to speak only which comes from truth and be proud to health with dignity.
