Daily Meditation: Awakening The Heart

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a prayer by 12th century Benedictine abbess and philosopher Saint Hildegard of Bingen. It reminds us to awaken to healing by bearing witness to the miracles of life.

By Hildegard of Bingen

Holy Spirit,
Giving life to all life,
Moving all creatures,
Root of all things,
Washing them clean,
Wiping out their mistakes,
Healing their wounds,
You are our true life,
Luminous, wonderful,
Awakening the heart from its ancient sleep.
