Sacred Space Prayer

                    PRAYER FOR CREATING SACRED SPACE
                                    
                                    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 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 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
                                    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.

Sacred Spaces

 

My first 17 ft. Geodesic Dome

 

 A Sacred space is a healing sphere that is pure, holy and safe. We can create sacred space and summon the healing power of nature anywhere on Earth. Much of our fear and pain derives from the feeling that the world is not a safe place for us. Within sacred space everyone is protected. 

I started realizing the importance of creating sacred space about 4 years ago at the Burning Man festival. When I got back I started building a geodesic dome from scratch. It took about a week and quite a bit of sweat. The math involved and pure physical hard work activated both sides of my brain simultaneously which resulted in a very satisfying process. The reward when finished was unparalleled. Consequently, I spent 100’s of hours of meditation, shamanic ritual, music, yoga and a place to go and leave behind the affairs of ordinary life. Within this space I was able to enter the quiet, peaceful inner world where an abundance of healing took place. I never thought I’d be able to connect to “spirit guides”, nor did I believe they existed. The healing energy and elements of sacred geometry of this space compelled me to return day after day, which subsequently opened up a portal to the spirit world, power animals and spirit guides. I had received many answers to questions regarding my life’s mission and how to maintain peace and happiness. I can’t give all the credit to the physical structure but without it, it’s quite difficult for me to make space in my life for consistent spiritual practice. The value of the first sacred space I built, is priceless.

After creating some domes I was inspired by Drunvalo Melchizedek’s book, The Ancient Secret of The Flower of Life to build a structure to aid in meditation and stimulate one’s Merkaba Energy Field. Here is a picture of it 75% complete.

On my past trip to Hawaii I was honored to assist in the construction of an adult play structure made from local harvested native Ohi’a wood. A few snags and a few weeks later we completed the jungle gym like structure.
