May you open your mind, heart and soul
as you set your feet in new soil.
May you walk about barefoot
so that you can fully arrive and synchronize
with Mother Earth’s transmissions, creative energy, and Her Heart's Presence in this place.
May you receive and send love through your heart’s resonance
and fully connect to the trees, the water, the rocks, the wind, the stars.
May you attune to their unique expressions and Spirit.
May you bow to the native Ancestors and the Guardians of the land.
May you walk gently and respectfully through their beloved home,
leaving only gifts and words of gratitude.
May you allow your soul to whisper to the collective soul of this sacred place.
May you be a blessing and be blessed
with recognizing the messages and gifts being showered upon you.
As you round each new corner,
may you open your smile to grin ear to ear.
May you fall in love
with the local people, their songs, special foods, and beautiful expressions.
May you join them at their tables
and share the stories from your tables.
May you be still and quiet,
so that you may come to recognize their worldview, their prayers,
and their dreams in your own.
May you open your mind, heart and soul so completely,
that you find yourself at Home.
After you leave, may you unwrap the gifts of this journey for years to come.
Even when your feet are in your home soil,
may you allow your heart to journey to distant places and peoples
so that you may become a guardian,
an ancestor showering your bountiful love and protection
onto all of the places your heart knows as Home.
And so may you be blessed,
