Sophia, Black Goddess of Wisdom, I give thanks to you, on this my birthday, for all that has come to pass, for all the lessons I have learned over the last 45 years.
In deep gratitude to you for having arrived at a stage in my life when I have the strength and courage I never dreamt possible, gifted to me from surviving so many deep challenges in the darkness of your cave.
I give thanks to you for continually rebirthing me out of the darkness and into the light of greater wisdom, love and compassion for myself and others.
I commit myself to you as your priestess, and offer my heart, mind and soul as a channel for the light of your divine love and healing.
May I serve you and all people, especially the vulnerable, to the best of my ability, and may I lead others from darkness into light by carrying the flame of your love.
