How to Open Sacred Space

Opening and Closing "Sacred Space"





To the winds of the South 
Great Serpent Sachamama
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 Ortorango
Mother Sister Jaguar

Protect our medicine space
Teach us the way of peace, to live impeccably
Show us the way beyond death





To the winds of the North
Hummingbird Serakinto Grandmothers and Grandfathers

Ancient Ones
Come and warm your hands by our fires
Whisper to us in the wind
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 Opachin

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 Pachamama


We’ve gathered here today 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


Father Sun, Grandmother Moon, to the Star Nations
Great Spirit, Itetiti, 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
One more day



When you have finished your healing work, sacred space must be closed. It is important to close the Sacred Space every night or at the end of the work week. Sacred space can also be opened at home to create an atmosphere of peace and protection.


To close the space, follow the same procedure as for the opening, acknowledging the four directions, Mother Earth and Father Sky. Thank the archetypes for being with you—serpent, jaguar, hummingbird, and eagle—and release their energies to return to the four corners of the Earth
