Cosmic Mother

Oh Goddess Mother
You are the mystery of Night
Your radiant shine is the Day
Infinite realms cascade within You

Abundance is Your essence of Being
Blessings flow from You Limitlessly
Your Universe is harmony and tension in Balance

Within each of us, You are Alive

Make Me Strong in Spirit

Make me strong in spirit
Courageous in action
Gentle of heart

Let me act in wisdom
Conquer my fear and doubt
Discover my own hidden gifts

Meet others with compassion
Be a source of healing energies
And face each day with hope and joy

~ Abby Willowroot © 1998



Just before the first glimmerings of dawn, the Great Crone sweeps across the sky and clothes the dying night in Her cloak. She wraps it tenderly and gently, enfolding each star, each galaxy, each universe in Her essence.

Slowly the Great Crone draws back Her cloak revealing gold, and pink, violet and the steely blue tones of first light. She is the Crone, Mistress of Re-birth. We honor Her as "Protectress of Endings" and "Birther of New Beginnings".

Dawn each day, is an affirmation of re-birth and a sacred ritual of the Crone's cycles and seasons.

Prayer of Becoming

Make my hands strong & gentle in Your Service
May I remember always, the Goddess works through Me

 Healing Chant

Deep in my Bone
the Goddess is alive
Deep in my cells and blood
the Life Force is strong
Deep in my heart and spirit
I believe I will heal

I feel the Goddess at my core

Abundant Life Forces of the Universe

Elements Hymn

At one with the Universe
My spirit is free
All creation pulses in me

Floating upon the wind
Sparking with the energy of fire
Flowing with the waters
Dancing the rhythms of Earth

Spinning and Spiraling
into Elemental re-birth
The magic of being renews

Floating upon the wind
Sparking with the energy of fire
Flowing with the waters
Dancing the rhythms of Earth

Between the Moon and Sun

~ Abby Willowroot © 1999

A Winter Prayer

Oh sorrowful Demeter
Goddess who mourns

Night breath, cool and sharp
Bare branches quivering
Beneath the Moon

Crackling snow glistens
Small shadows scurry past
Shallow prints upon the crust

Silence split by whispers
Billowing crystals drift down
Caressing Earth in timelessness

Even in your sorrow, you offer gifts

~ Abby Willowroot © 1999

Prayer of Passage

Oh Goddess
There is great sadness
A cherished one has gone

Emptyness engulfs me
Loss languishes within
Help me bear this grief

Accompany their spirit
Comfort we who grieve
Let us rejoice in their life

May their essence be recorded
In the Great Book of Shadows
Renew our remembrance with joy

~ Abby Willowroot © 1999


Blessing of Food

Thank Thee Great Goddess
For the bounty before me
A gift of thy great abundance

Thank you for sustaining my life
I receive your gift of food in gratitude

~ Abby Willowroot © 1999

Thank You Goddess

Oh Goddess
Bless this food
Which is your body

Bless this day
With your abundance
Bless my spirit
With your light

Thank you great Protectress

Hail Diana

Hail Artemis Diana
Blessed Lady of the Beasts

Be fulfilled this day

~ Abby Willowroot © 1999


Prayer for Strength

Goddess Mother help me
to be patient and strong
to see what is truly important
to act without selfishness or fear

Goddess Mother help me
to trust your wisdom
to resist the coward's way
to walk in faith and compassion
to be truly human in spirit and heart

A Gathering Chant

The night is upon us
The sky is clear
We call upon the Goddess
and She is near

Children of the Goddess gather
Weaving webs of magick
Dancing circles through time
Chanting to the quarters
Re-membering an earlier time

The year moves in a sacred wheel
As the Goddess teaches us to heal
We heal ourselves and each other
We heal the Earth

Children of the Goddess gather
Weaving webs of magick
Dancing circles through time
Chanting to the quarters
Re-membering an earlier time

Our spirits know the way
To celebrate each day
We heal ourselves and each other
We heal the Earth
Re-birthing a saner time

Children of the Goddess gather
Weaving webs of magick
Dancing circles through time
Chanting to the quarters
Re-membering an earlier time

Invocation of the Crone

Behold the Crone...
Dancer of Time
Completion of the Sacred Cycle

She Who is Wisdom
Beloved, respected and feared
Honored as Grandmother, Ancestress and Hag

In the end ~ there is beginning,
Death brings Birth, Life renews through Her

Behold the Crone, Dancer of Time
Mother of worlds, Maiden of re-birth,
Child of the next generation

Dancing through Time
She Who cuts the cords…Of life and death,
Grandmother of all

The Crone comes……..
Silently, powerfully, relentlessly
Crossing space and time,
Holding the threads of life and death,
Mistress of endings and beginnings

Speaking through elders
I am the Crone….
The Grandmothers….The Wisdom of Age….

I am Hecate, I am Kali, I am the Eternal One

I cross space and time,
Holding the threads of life and death,
Mistress of endings and beginnings

I am completion of the Cycle
Maiden….. Mother….. Crone.....
I have come as the Goddess,
And in me... all life renews
All things are possible

The Crone comes dancing
Silently, powerfully, relentlessly,
To all

~ Abby Willowroot © 2000

A Prayer of Oneness

I release my isolation to the Stars
Breathing in the Energy that connects all things
Allowing my body to be caressed by Nature

Filling my lungs with eternal Breath
Filling my senses with the joy of Being Alive
Filling my heart with gratitude for this Moment

Finally allowing my Spirit to soar Free
I am a creation of the Universe
Eternal in my Essence

In time . . . when my life wanes
Returning my body to Star Dust
Held in the body of the Great Goddess
I will again be the Energy of Life

~ Abby Willowroot © 2000



This day

this hour

this moment

I breathe in life

eternal energies

my atoms mingle

with all creation


This day

this hour

this moment

I eat other life

sun filled energy

nourish my atoms

with the life forces

of another that lived

plant, animal, fish, foul

life that was feeds me now


This day

this hour

this moment

I spend my life

energy held leaves  

my atoms flow outward

mingling with all creation

I am in all and all is in me


Bless all life

so mote it be

She Who

Great Cosmic Mother
Sacred Life Force in All Things
She Who Creates from Her Own Source
All that is, was, and shall be Mirrors Her

She Who is the Spiraling Galaxies
Alive in the Stars, immenant in All Things
Endlessly becoming, spinning Life into Being
She Who speaks to us through the Wind and the Calm

She Who is Sacred Balance
Spiral Weaver of Truth and Wisdom
Her Sacred Texts are the Leaves and Grasses
Everywhere is Her Consecrated Ground, Her Temple

She Who, She Who is Many
The Brilliant Sparks of Her Essence
Pulsing & Alive in each Cell of our Body
The Vibrant Red Sea flowing through us All
Is the Sacred River of She Who is the Spiral Goddess

Drug Recovery Prayer
by Abby Willowroot © 2008


Addiction has siezed my soul

and I am in pain, hollow inside

control of myself and my life is gone

but, I pretend I am still in control

fear and rage mingle inside me, 

pushing anyone who loves me away

isolating myself in my prison of drugs

a prison of regret, shame and grief

I live in the past and the future

now is a nightmare, and I can't wake up


Release me from my own addiction

open my heart to hope and life 

open my eyes to possible recovery 

make me willing . . . to let go of drugs

let go of fear, self hatred and shame

help me to let go of hopelessness

help me let go of people who drag me down

help me leave people who use drugs behind

help me recognize those who really love me

and cling to them for dear life . . .  my life

help me to know that I can have a different life

a happy life . . . with hope


Today I will sleep, as much as I need to

today I will eat and nurture my body 

today I will wash my body, and hair

today I will brush my teeth and get dressed

I will do one thing that is  . . ."normal"

I will trust myself to be able to do

all these things to help myself

and begin my return to sanity 


A life worth living is waiting for me

waiting for me to put down the drugs

waiting for me to believe I can change

waiting for me to allow myself to win

allow myself to smile, to feel peace

a life I will have to fight like hell to get to

I am willing, I am willing, I am willing to win

willing to be strong enough to walk away

ready to be strong enough to ask for help

I am ready to put down the drugs

I want to be free of drugs and delusions 

Help me to be willing to change

May my courage grow, my spirit lighten

my heart open, my fears grow weaker

I am ready for a life without drugs

I pray, help me to help myself today

awaken me from this nightmare hell

lead my heart to know that hope is possible

and grow that hope within me . . . now

I am ready, I am ready, I am ready . . .

to heal my body, my mind, my spirit, my life 

drugs are my past, they are not my future

for today, I will not use drugs

today I am becoming whole

today I am becoming my best self

one step at a time . . . one second at a time

one thought at a tome . . . one action at a time

I am escaping the nightmare

I encourage you to write your own Goddess Prayers. A Prayer is simply sending your words and heartfelt being out into the Universe.
