Here is an ancestral clearing prayer for peace for the brotherhood of man:
Creator, Divine Spirit, Great Mother, Grandfather, God, Source of All That Is: You come by so many names, and they all reference the same You – the Maker of All, alpha to omega, the Spark of Life and the Nothingness from whence life came, Great Wave Maker – we love You. Thank You for ever holding us in Your grace and love.
We humbly ask You for us and all of our ancestors, through all of space, time, all dimensions, and all realms:
For the times we hurt each other over so many years, and for the times others hurt us – please help us to forgive each other and forgive ourselves. Please and thank You.
For the times we stole land and resources from one another, without listening to what our hearts were truly saying, and for the times we drove forward into the madness of war with one another, even knowing we were turning directly away from what we knew in our hearts was right – please help us to all forgive one another and forgive ourselves – please and thank You.
For the times we made peace treaties and agreements, yet later went against our solemn oaths – please help us to all forgive each other, be forgiven, and to forgive ourselves, Please and thank You.
For the times we violated sacred land and any other spaces, times we trespassed, never asking permission, took what we wanted, failed to show respect or gratitude for what we received – please help us all to forgive each other, be forgiven, and to forgive ourselves. Please and thank You.
For the times we turned our backs on the brotherhood of man, when our fellow earth citizens begged us to remember the sanctity and sacred nature of the land and our place among all living things; for the times we refused to listen, and fought and made war instead – and all that arose from these actions -please help us all to forgive each other and to forgive ourselves – please and thank You.
Please help us all to see clearly our place in each other’s lives and in the brotherhood of man, and the great Wheel of Life. Please help us to heal the wounds of perceived separation from each other and You, Great Divine Spirit. Let us know love for ourselves, each other, and for You, now and forever. Please and thank You.
Please and thank You.
Please and thank You.
