Song of Amergin

As you say each line of the Song of Amergin, stop to reflect on what it means in the natural world, and how it applies to you.

I am the wind across a deep wide lake. 

I am the wave over the endless sea.

I am the stag of seven tines, racing through the woods.

I am the eagle in the afire, flying above the rocks.

I am a flash of light from the sun above, bringing heat to those below.

I am the blooming plants, bringing the sustenance and beauty.

I am a wild board, powerful and strong.

I am the salmon in the water, swimming endlessly upstream. 

I am the hill where poets stroll for inspiration. 

I am the head of the spear that draws blood in battle. 

I am the god that puts fire in the head and honor in the heart. 


Take time to reflect on each of these thoughts. How do they apply to you and your place in the natural world?

Stretch your arms, and take in a deep breath. If you’ve been sitting, stand up.  This is a warrior’s song and to really feel it’s power, you should be on your feet facing the sky.  These last few lines can be shouted at the top of your lungs if you feel like it.

Who spreads light in the gathering on the hills? 

Who can tell the ages of the moon? 

Who can tell the place where the sun rests? 

Thing about the answers to these questions. How do they apply to you and your everyday life? How do they apply to your spiritual journey?

Take a few more minutes to think, and when you are ready, begin your trek home.
