Prayer of Weaving

Mihi – The Prayer of Weaving

My day often begins early, around 3 am, when the walls between the worlds are thin, and it is easier to walk in the World Between, to hear what is to be heard.

One morning in 2020, during Level Four lockdown here in Aotearoa New Zealand, the Voice roused me from my bed. Write this down, it said. I grumbled and pulled the bed covers up over my heard.

I am not listening (I can be stubbornly disobedient to Wairua/Spirit).

The Voice grew louder.

GET OUT OF BED!

I did as I was told.

And this karakia found its way into my book Raahui.


Prayer of Weaving

Let us weave a prayer of light

Let us weave a prayer of night

Let us weave a prayer of water

Let us weave a prayer of all that is blue

Let us weave a prayer of trees

Let us weave a prayer of all that is green

Let us weave a prayer of earth

Let us weave a prayer of all that is red

Let us weave a prayer of breathing

Let us weave a prayer of all that is air

Let us weave a prayer of gold

Let us weave a prayer of all that is Love

Let us weave a prayer of threads without ends or beginnings

Let us weave a prayer of connection

With, from, and to

The Ground of All Being.
