I am Witch

This poem or incantation can be found with various adjustments and has been credited to a number of different sources (where any citation is provided at all). The version below is as it was taught to me and as I use it at this time.

I am Witch

From beneath me arises the energy of the earth,
my home and my foundation.

From above me pours down the light of the sun,
and the enchanting moon.

To my right hand flows the strength to control and direct,
the power of magic.

To my left hand comes the skill to divine and to heal,
the source of blessing.

Before me arises the perfected one I strive to become,
my magical true self.

Behind me falls the one I was,
and with it my discarded failures.

Around me circle the eternal stars,
lamps of wisdom in the deeps of space.

Within me grows the Flame of Life,
the light of experience and understanding.

I am Witch.
Blessed be.
