When I first undertook the study of magick I learned the practice of Adoration. For anyone who does not already know, an Adoration is a simple ritual that you preform daily. Sometimes these are done once a day, and sometimes they are preformed as much as four times a day. Those that I first practiced where from the Robe and Ring by Denning & Phillips. Later I began using a simpler formula found in a book by Robert Anton Wilson.

My oldest daughter was at a point where she was ready to start practicing a morning Adoration. One of the things that we, as a family, are attempting to do, is use (as much as possible) a system with a Celtic foundation. Robert Anton Wilson’s adoration has a strong Egyptian flavor, but I selected it as a starting point. What follows below is a variation of Wilson’s adoration, as well a a variation of what we are teaching our children.

Please note that there is a blank in the text of the adoration, this is provided for you to place the name of your personal deity.

I bless Bridget, who burns so bright.
I bless Cerne, in the night.
I bless ________, who leads my way.
I bless the Earth I walk this day.


Bridget, Brid, Bride, Brighid, Brigantia or Brittiania: A Goddess of fire and the Sun, the Great Mother, fertility, and creative inspiration of music and crafts.

Cerne, Cernunnos/Herne: The Horned God of the woodlands, consort of the Great Mother, master of the wild hunt, and guardian of the Otherworld’s gates.

By blessing the Earth we seek to teach our children to acknowledge their connection to the source of the life giving substances that they use and consume.
