Prayer to the Elements [a poem]

By Cara Amy Goldthorpe | Featured Contributor

Protect the soils: 
soils from which 
new life grows 
life to sustain us 
with its nourishing blooms 
till we return to the earth 
to begin 
another cycle 

Protect the waters: 
waters of our blood 
flowing their wisdom 
from the rivers to the sea 
and beyond to new lands 
reminding us all 
of the cleansing power 
of the divine storm 

Protect the air: 
breath of our ancestors 
and kiss of the trees 
whispering to the breeze 
songs of the stars 
and the sky where they reside 
messages of the heavens 
descend from above 

Protect the fires: 
lights of our Souls 
warmed by the Sun 
in a radiant dawn 
of etheric awakenings 
signaling the beginnings 
birthed from within 
the moment we realize – 

We are One. 
We are Whole. 
We are Love

Hola, I’m Cara. Formerly a practicing lawyer, I’m now a storyteller, mentor, and holistic health practitioner. Life took me down an unexpected path when I was locked down in Costa Rica at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. This catalyzed me to leave behind my legal practice in London and devote my attention toward my creative projects as well as developing my knowledge in the field of holistic health.

In my early twenties, I suffered from a number of chronic health issues. Those experiences sowed the seeds for my current change of life path. My mission is to inspire and empower others to find their own inner guidance, to live healthier, happier, and more harmonious lives. I am trained in Craniosacral therapy and have been receiving ongoing mentorship from a shaman. I offer mentoring, 1-1 healing sessions (both in person and online), and am also working ceremonially with cacao as a plant medicine.
