Today I would like to share with you a sacred Navajo blessing that crossed my path recently called Walking in Beauty.
I’ll skip the backstory on how this came into my awareness except to say that everything happens for a reason! One thing I know about myself is that I like to create beauty and above all, I have the blessing of seeing the beauty within and around me and in all beings, places and things. It is a gift and takes practice to embrace this throughout each now moment.
Throughout my journey my heart, mind, consciousness and my eyes have opened more and more to see in a new way. To see through the eyes of beauty.
I hope that you enjoy this and find inspiration on your awakening path.
Walking in Beauty Prayer from the Navajo Beauty Way Blessing Ceremony
In beauty I walk With beauty before me I walk With beauty behind me I walk With beauty above me I walk With beauty around me I walk It has become beauty again
Hózhóogo naasháa doo. Shitsijí’ hózhóogo naasháa doo. Shikéédéé hózhóogo naasháa doo. Shideigi hózhóogo naasháa doo. T’áá altso shinaagóó hózhóogo naasháa doo. Hózhó náhásdlíí’. Hózhó náhásdlíí’. Hózhó náhásdlíí’. Hózhó náhásdlíí’
Today I will walk out, today everything negative will leave me
I will be as I was before, I will have a cool breeze over my body.
I will have a light body, I will be happy forever, nothing will hinder me.
I walk with beauty before me. I walk with beauty behind me.
I walk with beauty below me. I walk with beauty above me.
I walk with beauty around me. My words will be beautiful.
In beauty all day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.
With beauty before me may I walk.
With beauty behind me may I walk.
With beauty below me may I walk.
With beauty above me may I walk.
With beauty all around me may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
My words will be beautiful…
