Baby Blessing of the Elements

I ask for you, my child, the blessing of the Earth–
from whose body we are formed and to whose arms we return
when our journey here is over.
May its strength and determination
be gifted unto you.

I ask for thee, the blessing of the Winds–
The breath of life that circles from the corners of the earth
and whispers its secrets into our ears.
May its clarity and truth
be gifted unto you.

I ask for thee, the blessing of Fire
which energizes and consumes
and illuminates all of life.
May its courage and passion
be gifted unto you.

I ask for thee, the blessing of Water
which no living being can exist without,
washing away fear, cleansing pain, and birthing dreams.
May its flexibility and fluidity
be gifted unto you.
