(The angels advised posting some blessings today as we can all use some Divine benefit in our lives in these uncertain and chaotic times on our planet.)
A BLESSING FOR SUPPORT: A blessing on you, so that those who are in accord within their hearts and within their noble selves come to your side in times of need, as ally, advisor, friend, and if need be, warrior.
A blessing upon you now, who need the support of others. May you send out the call, in spirit and in word, and to your side may there come those who know they stand with you. Within this atmosphere of empathy and accord, let there be honor on each side, and let old dissatisfactions fall away so that together now you can face whatever it is you must confront. For when we stand with others, with the tribe, with the souls of those with whom we have stood in the past, we allow ourselves to have support, and back-up, and the strength of alliance, instead of the fragility of isolation.
May the right allies come to you, and be noble in their deeds, and ask nothing of you that you are not willing to give, because it is good and just. May those that come to your side be brave, full of integrity, able to feel fear, yet do what is right. And when you go through whatever darkness that is before you, may these allies walk with you, allowing you to lead, and asking only that you too act in integrity and with justice. May those who stand with you be most blessed — advisor, warrior, kindred, clan, and may you all conquer the enemies both within and without. If it be sickness or hard times, let healing come to you, if it be poverty, let food be placed upon your table, if it be injury, let them offer you the rest that will help you be whole, and if it be in battle, let their swords be sharp, their skills steadfast, their knowledge of the enemy keen and shining. May you be most blessed in support, and may rewards come to all those who do what is right, in the hardest of times. Look about you — see — they are coming to ride by your side, and you will not go into the darkness alone. Blessed be.

A BLESSING FOR SOLACE AND HOPE: This is a blessing for solace, the comfort that comes in the form of good fortune, strange little moments that bring you back to the sense that the Universe is a place where you are cared for, considered and important, and that this solace brings you hope for the future, and anticipation for the fair things that life will continue to bring you.
Solace is the balm and the antidote to the wounds that life can deliver. It is not personal, for being here is a great gift, and we live in times where, in many ways, we are safer than we have ever been before. But we are fed a diet of hopelessness from our cultures and media sources, until we become overwhelmed with the troubles that seem to surround us. This blessing is for you, to find your way back to sweetness. For the flower in bud to release its sweetness, for you to notice the shimmer of light upon the water, the sheer pleasure to movement, the ease of a mind no longer racing over problems to be solved, but soft, intelligent, allowing the calm of life to steal back in to your soul.
This is the solace that keeps our hopes alive, the gift of good fortune that reawakens the candle of optimism that is within us, and the delight in the sheer whimsy of being here, and being alive. It is the understanding that there may be little control, but we are no mere pawns in this life, we have our place in the world, and simply with our breathing in and out, we matter and we are all doing enough. To find solace is to find peaceful moments, small connections, to notice the thousand gifts life has conferred upon us, and it is to again invoke the divinity of existence, without the fear of the future. Let hope give you lightness, draw away the pain, and open you up again to the possibilities, until you begin to once again to relish the simple voluptuous truth of being alive. Blessed Be.
