Invocation to Open (and Close) Sacred Space

To the winds of the SouthGreat serpent,

Great serpent,

Wrap your coils of light around me,

Teach me to shed the past the way you shed you skin

To walk softly on the Earth.  Teach me the Beauty Way


To the winds of the West

Mother jaguar,

Protect my medicine space,

Teach me the way of peace, to live impeccably

Show me the way beyond death


To the winds of the North,

Humming bird, Ancient Ones

Come and warm your hands by my fire

Whisper to me in the wind

I honor you who have come before,

And you who will come after, our children’s children


To the winds of the East,

Great eagle, condor

Come to me from the place of the rising Sun,

Keep me under your wing,

Show me the mountains I only dare to dream of,

Teach me to fly wing to wing with the Great Spirit


Mother Earth,

I’ve come 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 my relations


Father Sun, Grandmother Moon, to the Star Nations,

Great Spirit, you who are known by at house and names

And you who are the unnamable One

Thank you for allowing me to sing the

Song of Life
