Prayer For My Mother

On Monday, my mother goes into hospital again.  It felt like a good time to focus on her and sending healing love her way.  For this prayer, I chose cards from the Pagan Lenormand (Lo Scarabeo, 2014).  They are especially big, good for seeing clearly even at a distance.  And I liked the fact that the Tree card shows people working healing magic and the Bear shows a Bear in spirit.  I won't be with my mother in person, but she will be in my thoughts!

I chose Rider (sending a message, quick), Tree (health), Bear (mother, strength) and Heart (heart, love), and read them two ways:

I pray for the health of my mother's heart.
I pray for her quick recovery, sending her strength and love.

Drawing from the Kuan Yin Oracle (Blue Angel, 2012), I received Spin The Silken Thread Divine.  This card talks of the need to let go of old emotional baggage and to honour your best skills and abilities moving forward.  This is likened to the process of separating out the pure strands of silk from the silk worm's rough cocoon.  Good advice with someone going into hospital, I think: let go of past fears and troubles, focus on the joy and beauty of coming out the other side.

  1. This deck is really suitable for spells/prayers. I hope and pray everything will go just fine and your mother will have a speedy recovery and good results from her operation
    I know it must be hard not to be there in person but I am sure she will be in good hands
    Hugs

    1. Hi Ellen, yes, I was surprised at how well it works for this, so long as it is a brief spell/prayer - as you can see, I barely fitted four cards onto my altar :D
      Thank you for adding your prayers to mine!
      Hugs!

  2. What a lovely, visual prayer for your mom. May she receive all the benefits the doctors are hoping for her, and may her recovery be smooth and swift.

  4. Many warm healing thoughts, and prayers to your mother and you Kerry. And to the doctors and nurses in their care. Prayers are the best thing we can do always.

    1. Very true, Cat. I came late to a belief in the power of prayer, and am glad I found it :)
