The invocation of mother earth & father sky

say

Mother Earth & Father Sky
The gracious greators of me
The eternal... and ever-changing One's
Who are found nowhere... but appears everywhere
Beyond... and within all
Timeless... circle of the seasons
Unknowable mystery... known by all.
Lady & Lord of the dance... Mother & Father of all life
Be radiant within us... Engulf us with your love
See with our eyes, hear with our ears, breathe with our nostrils, touch with our hands, kiss with our lips,
Open our hearts!
That we may live free at last
Joyful in the single song of all that is, was, or ever shall be!

Reasons & purpose for ritual

We come here in celebration of the Lughnasadh, the first harvest. This is the time when nature is in bountiful supply. O Father sky one whom shines over the ripening fields, grant me the understanding of sacrifice as you prepare to give yourself to the sickle of the Mother Earth, and journey forth to the land of eternal summer.
O Mother Earth please teach me the secrets of rebirth, as the sun now begins to lose its strength.

Act of Power

Earth Healing Stones

Hold your stones in your hands and focus on them, and think about the earth as the stone is a microcosm of the earth, and is connected to the whole of the earth. think on that part of the earth which is in need of healling, and focus on it, picture it clearly in your mind, and imagine it being healed, imagine that the healling is complete.
Now Imagine a ball of white light around it, the light is clear, and strong, see this light full of energy, and as bright as you can imagine. Now imagine that the thing that needs healing is within the ball of light, and see the ball of light healling it. see it healed and well again. visualize the healing complete.

Now place your stones in a circle in the center of your altar.
Now chant
We the children of the earth and Sky
Must heal our Mother by and by
With hearts and minds we all will try
To bring her healing by and by.

Now focus on your energy in the stones, and see them filled with a beautiful clear white light. Imagine the stones shining with the light, and that light is radiating in all directions. Imagine the stones filled withenergy that is strong, and pulsing, and it gaining in strength. Now think about what you have healed, see it healthy, now send it out into manifestation. Now release the energy all at once.

So mote it be
