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.

To the Winds of the South
Great Serpent
Wrap your coils of light around us
Teach us to shed the past the way you shed your skin
To walk softly on the earth
Teach us the beauty way

To the Winds of the West
Mother Jaguar
Protect our sacred medicine space
Teach us the way of peace, to live impeccably
Show us the way beyond death

To the Winds of the North
Hummingbird, Grandmothers and Grandfathers, Ancient Ones
Come and warm your hands at our fires
Whisper to us in the wind
We honour you who have come before us,
And you who will come after us, our children’s children

To the Winds of the East
Great Eagle, Condor
Come to us from the place of the rising sun
Keep us under your wing
Show us the mountains we only dare to dream of
Teach us to fly wing to wing with the Great Spirit

Mother Earth
We’ve gathered for the healing of all your children. 
The Stone People, the Plant People
The four-legged, the two-legged, the creepy crawlers
The finned, the furred, and the winged ones
All our relations.

Father Sun 
Grandmother Moon, to the Star nations
Great Spirit, you who are known by a thousand names
And you who are the Unnamable One
Thank you for bringing us together
And allowing us to sing the Song of Life.
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.
