I'm hosting a birth blessing for a neighbor, and would love suggestions of poems or songs to read/play during the event.<br><br>
(x posted in birth and beyond, but it is something of a spiritual event)<br><br>
TIA!

Here are some chants/songs but since you probably do not know the tune, they could be poems. Or make up your own tune.<br><br>
I am opening:<br><br>
I am opening up in sweet surrender<br>
To the luminous love light of the one<br><br>
I am opening up in sweet surrender<br>
To the luminous love light of the one<br><br>
I am opening, I am opening, I am opening (repeat)<br><br>
^^ I sang this to myself during labour :)<br><br>
The River Is Flowing:<br><br>
The river is flowing (or: The river She is flowing)<br>
Flowing and growing<br>
The river is flowing<br>
Down to the sea<br>
Mother carry me<br>
Your child I will always be<br>
Mother carry me<br>
Down to the sea<br><br>
Power Spot:<br><br>
You gotta find yourself a power spot<br>
Bring along a spoon and cooking pot<br>
Bring air, bring fire, bring water, bring earth<br>
And a new Universe will birth (repeat)<br><br>
Here is a link to a site called Birth Beads with information about Blessing Way ceremonies - chants and songs:<br><br><a href="http://www.birthbeads.com/Chants.html" target="_blank">http://www.birthbeads.com/Chants.html</a><br><br>
The Woman Am I song and The Circle Is Open are very popular in my area.<br><br>
Good luck and enjoy!!<br><br>
