Circle Casting Song

(written by Susan Falkenroth. “The Circle Casting Song” from Reclaiming and Friends: Second Chants)

Eastern morning
First breath of the soul
Worldview forming
Sacred and whole
Wind of knowledge
Simple and wise
Bring of the lightnening
That strikes in our minds
Come to us– be here now

Southern Fire
White rays of the sun
Source of will
That always is done
Heat of passion
Longing and need
You who push the Green One
Out of the seed
Come to us — be here now

Wester rivers
devotee of the moon
gentle sculptor
of babes in the womb
Spring of jubiltion
Courage and tears
Giver of the sweet love
that sooths all our fears
Come to – us be here now

Northeren moutains
Body of the Earth
Finite treasure
Of infinite worth
Cave of transformation
Childbirth and death
Suckler of the wild ones
Who curl upon your breast
Come to us – be here now

The Fire of Committment #1028

(Jason Shelton and Mary Katherine Morn)

From the light of days remembered burns a beacon bright and clear
Guiding hands and hearts and spirits Into faith set free from fear.

Chorus:

When the fire of commitment sets our mind and soul a blaze
When our hunger and our passion meet to call us on our way
When we live with deep assurance of the flame that burns within,
Then our promise finds fulfillment and our future can begin.

From the stories of our living rings a song both brave and free,
Calling pilgrims still to witness to the life of liberty.

Chorus

From the dreams of youthful vision comes a new, prophetic voice,
Which demands a deeper justice built by our courageous choice

Chorus

Becoming

Song: Becoming
Artist: Spiral Rhythm
Album: We Are Light

I thrust my feet deep in the earth
Reach hungry for the sky
Bathe my limbs in the river’s flow
The wind, she blows me dry
I will become all I touch
And all that touches me
I will be one with everything I see

I hurl my body skyward
And lose myself in flight
Spread my soul through
the coming dark
Until I am the night
I will become the shadows
Between all that you see
I am a thread in all reality

I rise up with the fiery dawn
And paint a blazing sky
Ride the rain down the mountain side
And travel to the sea
I will become the seasons
The turning of the wheel
I am the light of all
that you hold dear

The sunlight falls as music
The wind she howls a tune
The earth heart beats the baseline
To the ocean’s croon
I will become the harmony
Become the melody
I will be one with
the singer and what’s sung

Now I am the fire’s power
The wind both wild and free
The molten heart of the
deep, deep earth
And the ever changing sea
I have become everything
And all has become me
I am one,
I’m everything you see

Fire transform me
Bring me to my passion
Fire transform me
Bring me to my passion

I choose life (Yes!)
I choose courage

To dance among the flames

Brighid’s Flame

Artist: Kellianna
Song: Brighid’s Flame
Album: Elemental

I am the spark before the fire
from winters cold I do inspire
I am the promise of the Spring
I am the tiniest of flames.

A dancing fire upon the snow
in darkest night a mighty glow
I circle toward the coming spring
I am all life awakening.

Mid-Winters’ slumber I do shake
I coax the seed and bulb to wake
I pull them slowly from their dreams
I am the Maiden of the flame.

Protecting all at time of birth
In love and safety draw them forth
I wrap all newborns in my light
I am the Maiden dressed in white.

Waters of Bliss

Fire of Creation ℗ 2007 Abigail Spinner McBride)

I drink from many fountains
I have watered many wells
I float in the waves of the waters of bliss
Where my body and soul are held

I dissolve in your ocean
I surrender to you
I release into your real ease
I am yours through and through

I savor the flavor of family
And I’m filled with the spring of friends
I’m filled with the flow from above and below
No beginning, no end

I dissolve in your ocean
I surrender to you
I release into your real ease
I am yours through and through

I drink from many fountains
I have watered many wells
I float in the waves of the waters of bliss
Where my body and soul are held

I dissolve in your ocean
I surrender to you
I release into your real ease
I am yours through and through

I savor the flavor of family
And I’m filled with the spring of friends
I’m filled with the flow from above and below
No beginning, no end

I dissolve in your ocean
I surrender to you
I release into your real ease
I am yours through and through

I drink from many fountains
I have watered many wells
I float in the waves of the waters of bliss
Where my body and soul are held

I dissolve in your ocean
I surrender to you
I release into your real ease
I am yours through and through

I savor the flavor of family
And I’m filled with the spring of friends
I’m filled with the flow from above and below
No beginning, no end

I dissolve in your ocean
I surrender to you
I release into your real ease
I am yours through and through

I float in the waves of the waters of bliss

Blue Boat Home

“Blue Boat Home” ©2002 by Peter Mayer

Though below me, I feel no motion
Standing on these mountains and plains
Far away from the rolling ocean
Still my dry land heart can say
I’ve been sailing all my life now
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel
And the earth is my blue boat home

Sun, my sail and moon, my rudder
As I ply the starry sea
Leaning over the edge in wonder
Casting questions into the deep
Drifting here with my ship’s companions
All we kindred pilgrim souls
Making our way by the lights of the heavens
In our beautiful blue boat home

I give thanks to the waves upholding me
Hail the great winds urging me on
Greet the infinite sea before me
Sing the sky my sailor’s song
I was born upon the fathoms
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel
And the earth is my blue boat home

Firebird’s Child

Song: FIrebird’s Child

Artist: S. J. Tucker

Album: Blessings

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
And like the flame, I am wild wild wild wild WILD!
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard

Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
Join in the dance and make it wild!
To see a maiden dance around a fire is not so strange
but fire dances round the limbs of this uncommon maid!
Be brave enough to burn and you’ll be brave enough to fly!
Join your sister Solace as she lights the morning sky!

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild wild Wild
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
And like the flame, I am wild wild wild wild WILD!

Wonders of the water air and earth are all the same
you’ll never know a wonder like the wonders of the flame!
Freely fly as what you are and never walk in shame!
You must not fear to blister if you’d live a life in flame!
I am girl and firebird and solace is my name!

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
Join in the dance and make it wild!

If you’re brave enough to dance then you are brave enough to fly!
Forget what’s right and proper! You won’t know until you try!
If you’re brave enough to fly, then you are brave enough to burn!
Take my hand and join me in the Carnival of Dawn!

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
Join in the dance and make it wild!

Sister will you follow me?
Sister will you follow me?
Sister will you dance with me?
Sister sorrow walk with me!
Sister will you follow me? Sister will you dance with me?
Sister sorrow walk with me! Sister will you follow me?
Sister will you burn with me? Sister will you follow me?
Sister sorrow dance with me!
Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird!
Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird!
Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird!
Like a flame you must be wild

I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild!
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird’s child! (I am the firebird’s child!)
I am the firebird! I am his daughter!
I am the firebird and Solace is my name
