Opening Sacred Space & Medicine Wheel Directions

This week is an early installment of Mysticism & Magic as I felt called to share the healing and transformation available to us through the Medicine Wheel.
Even if you are unfamiliar with the teachings of the Q'ero or the Peruvian Medicine Wheel, simply calling on the directions and the archetypes associated with each can help you achieve a sense of peace and calm while creating a sacred space around you.
Each direction offers insight, release, healing, and wisdom. In this practice, you will raise your personal vibration as well as that of the planet. Isn't that amazing? 
Below is an outline to call on directions and open sacred space. You can use these words or create your own. It is your intention which matters most.
Opening Sacred Space / Calling on Directions
Winds of the South, Spirits of the South ~ Come be with Us
Sachamama, Great Serpent, wrap us in your coils of Light
Teach us to live belly to belly with the Mother
In time with the heartbeat and rhythm of Life
Help us to shed our past the way you shed your skin
And return us to a space of innocence and wonder
Winds of the West, Spirits of the West
Otorongo, Mother-Sister Jaguar, protect our medicine space
Teach us the way of the Luminous Warrior
Who knows no enemies in this life or the next
Help us to cross the Rainbow Bridge
Beyond fear, beyond death
To bring our shadows into light
And to walk our paths with integrity and peace
Winds of the North, Spirits of the North ~ Come be with Us
Sewar Kenti, Royal Hummingbird, Ancestors, Luminous Ones
Come and warm your hands by our fires
Teach us to drink of the sweet nectar of Life
To honor you who have come before us
And you who will come after us, our children’s children
Winds of the East, Spirits of the East ~ Come be with Us
Hatun Kuntu/Capuchin, Great Eagle/Condor of the Rising Sun
Teach us to fly wingtip to wingtip with Great Spirit
To see from above the Apus and mountains
As we dream our world into being
Mother Earth, Pachamama ~ Come be with Us
Teach us to nurture and support You
As you nurture and support us
For the healing of all your children
The Stone People, the Plant People
The two-legged, the four-legged, the creepy crawlers
The finned, the furred, the feathered
And to all our relations
Star Brothers, Star Sisters ~ Come be with Us
Grandfather Sun, Inti Taita
Grandmother Moon, Mama Quilla
Creator, Wakan Tanka
You who are known by a thousand names
And you who are the Unnamable One
Thank you for bringing us together
To Sing the song of Life
As beings of Light in this realm
We open this sacred space in the Center
Where Life, Law, Love and Light exist
We are infinitely connected with all of Creation
And with one another
In this Space of I AM
Traditionally, sacred space is opened at the beginning of prayer, ceremony or gatherings and the directions are closed at the conclusion. It is important to practice some form of opening and closing directions for yourself in honor of these sacred traditions. 
One way you can do this is to call on the directions early in the day and offer gratitude to each archetype and direction before bed. 
Notice any differences in your thoughts, emotions, and energy as you work with the Medicine Wheel in the coming days.  
Wishing you peace and beauty. 
Love & Light,
