An affirmation is a positive self-empowering statement that should be said daily . They have probably always been around for a long while but became a ‘thing’ in the New Age movement. As part of our spiritual lives many make affirmations and I support this, and we should make affirmations part of our daily ritual.
As féinnidi we should do more. We should declare ourselves to the gods daily our role and remind ourselves who we are and why we do what we do. This first declaration focuses on the Otherworldly aspect of fénidecht and is a prayer that can be done anytime or anyplace.
Warrior, hunter, poet, seer, outsider, I am what
is feared by the ‘things that go bump in the night.’ With truth in my heart,
strength of my arms, and constancy of my tongue, I walk the boundary between
worlds and stand at the borders guarding against the unknown. Armed against
those who wish to harm; I am the wolf, I am the prey, I am the wild hunt.
I am a guardian between the realms, a wild beast in the wood, a féinnid
in the service of my people.
