Blessing for the Body Gone Under the Blade

Blessing for the Body Gone Under the Blade

For all the mxgender and transgender people, and for anyone else doing top or bottom surgery, this blessing is for you.

For all those who go under the blade
Healing your life by cutting away
I offer you this blessing:


May your lungs be strong and clear
Breathing easily in, easily out
Carrying medicine to take you deep
Staying steady as you sleep

May your heart beat strong and clear
A steady, regular beat
Carrying your pulse through your body
May your blood move effortlessly through your arteries and veins,
Slowing only where it is staunched

(for top surgery)
May the hills of your breasts
Flatten into the plains if your chest
May you be broad and joyful in your smoothness
May you be molded as you wished
May you retain delightful sensitivity
May you be well

(or)
May the flat plains of your chest
Rise into the lovely swells of your breasts
May you be joyfully curved
And molded as you wished
May you retain delightful sensitivity
May you be well

(for bottom surgery)
May that which no longer serves you as open
Be closed
May the most sensitive skin
Be molded into new flesh
A jutting delightful
Crowned by bright-sparking nerves
May you rise joyfully
May pleasure be yours
May you be well

(or)
May that which no longer serves you on the outside
Be folded inward, opening you
May the most sensitive flesh
Be moved above, to crown your opening
A bundle of pleasure-sparking nerves
May you be tenderly parted
Healing into a new shape
May you enjoy your body however you please
May you be well

O body that has gone
Under the blade
Losing and gaining, shaping and molding
May this new curve or dip, flatness or swell
Be exactly what you desire
Taking from your sacred flesh
And restored to you
May you be as you have always been
Inward for made outward
May you heal into your new body
And may your new body be of healing to you
Blessed be.
