How To Open Sacred Space

Standard

There are a couple of ways to open sacred space. The video post on 2/15 shows one of them. The video demonstrates shamans in various scenarios up opening up sacred space.

Here will be details for doing so:

Use this prayer (or something similar).

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.

The winds of the West

Mother jaguar,

Protect our medicine space.

Teach us the way of peace, to live impeccably

To the winds of the North

Hummingbird, Grandmothers and Grandfathers,

Ancient Ones

Come and warm your hands by our fires

Whisper to us in the win

We honor 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 th rising Sun

Keep us under your wing

Show us th mountains we only date to dream of

Teach us to fly wing to wing with th Great Spirit

Mother Earth

We’ve gathered for the healing of all of 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

As you start the prayer, address the south, face that direction. When addressing each of the directions, either take the smudge stick and fan it with hand or feather in that direction, sprinkle scented water, or raise your hand to salute each direction, shake rattle.

Then touch the earth and look upwards in to the Heavens to signify  connection with Mother  Earth and Father Sky.

[Healing session occurs here]

Close the Sacred Space by thanking each animal spirit.

Now the text, states if you wish to connect with a particular archetype, to leave a specific one open instead of closing that direction. The request will be to have the animal enter you and assist you (or whoever you are working on) with the session. But it only mentions to “blow” the energy into the crown of the person you are working on. Not how to do it for yourself.
