Invocation for Sacred Spaces
This is the invocation to create Sacred Space that we are taught when receiving the Munay Ki Rites.
It can be used whenever you feel the need for a sacred space. I use a version of it when I start a healing session with a client – calling in aspects of each direction that I can feel are most needed for the client in the session.
The words are not cast in concrete. Just as the archetype that comes with each direction differ across the world.
Start facing the south and turn to face each direction as you call it in. When calling in Mother Earth go down onto your knees and touch the earth. Then stand up and reach to the sky when calling in Father Sky.
As you familiarise yourself with the words and get to know the archetypes of each direction you are welcome to change the words to what feels right for you.

Bring your hands to your heart chakra, left hand over right hand, and close your eyes. Take 3 slow deep breaths, holding the last breath in for as long as you can. As you breathe out, release and relax. Call upon your higher self. Allow your higher self to anchor and become one with you, feeling it flowing over you, into you. Anchoring your higher consciousness into your vibration and body. Feel it. Anchor it. Feel your heart. Feel compassion and love flowing out from your heart. Be still. Then say: Be still and know that I am (3x). Feel your soul, your own inner beauty. Feel protected. Call upon whoever you connect to for assistance and support from in the higher realms. Make your intentions for your day/session/class/project. Finish with Amen. Smile from your heart.
