Mother Earth, Father Sky,

The directions: North, East, South, West, and the corresponding elements. The ancestors of this place, and the spirits of those around me:

Thank you for the bountiful year we’ve had, physically and spiritually. You have guided and inspired throughout this crucially important year for me - the harvest of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, meats, and energies have provided nourishment and care. I thank you and ask that you continue to bless through Winter. Hail and welcome, season of Autumn. May you bring with you the energies we all need to survive, and in sacrifice take our old energies; the leaves from the trees, the shedding of ourselves.

Your guidance is forever in appreciation.

Spirits, stay as you wish, leave if you must. Hail and farewell. Blessed be.
