We may call upon the Elven Gods and Goddesses, the Tuatha de Danann, Children of the Earth Mother, evolved souls. Today I call upon Lugh, the Shining One, for Courage, Discipline and Strength.
Lugh, The Shining One: God of Courage, Discipline, Strength
Strong and radiant, Lugh is the God of the Sun, master of all skills including carpentry, masonry, Druidry and poetry. He is a smith of precious metals and a doctor of healing.
There are many memorable ancient tales of Lugh and his adventures. Then, of course, there is Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom – the tale of Lugh returning to our Earth at this time. He is the archetypal and quintessential hero of universal protection.
We call in Lugh’s Name for the gathering of forces: wind, fire, water and earth to bless upon us now, the characteristics of strength, discipline and courage.
I ask the universal forces to summon the power of the Great Spirit, Lugh, to my side in this moment and shed upon me his powerful light of courage, strength and discipline to guide me.
Lugh, I call upon your strength
Your powerful arms to lift me
From grief that tries to swallow my heart
Lift me and let me fly with you
Soaring as we meet the Eagle, the Raven and the Hawk
Lugh, I call upon you for courage
To jump the wide canyon
With faith the wind will lift us
Courage to speak the words
That are forbidden–and yet necessary
Courage to give life to ideas
Knowing they are blessed
From a higher Source than myself.
I ask for your guidance in discipline
To know and follow the Way
To press out through the briars and thorns
Knowing I will reach the fine sweet meadow.
For dedicated Practice to hone my skills
And Pride that I have done so.
