EARTH IS THE HOLY LAND
by Winged Disk.
Many pagans live in cities, or areas that have been dominated by
governmental/corporate energy. Some of us live near nuclear power
plants, toxic wast sites, or other such sites. We feel a need to
always "go out to a wilderness area" to work our magick because where
we live has been "tainted". This belief that our magick is somehow
less effective due to location can diminish our effectiveness.
We need to evolve our belief systems. Earth is a divine being. We
are Her children. Everything, all life on Earth is sacred. By consec-
rating any part of Earth as a sacred site. we can help ourselfs know
our divine essence functions effectively anywhere. We heal ourselfs,
we heal the land when we reclaim/give areas "back" to the Earth.
For example, a toxic waste dump appears to be dead, powerless, or
corrupted. By dedication that land to the Earth and consecrating that
land as divine we help Earth disturbed energy. An individual or group
can transform an entire city into a Magickal land. Again. In all nows.
On August 17, 1987, our group laid around the city of Birmingham,
Alabama, a medicine wheel made of medicine wheels measuring 8000 feet
across. We made Birmingham "a place of compacting power" for healing
the Earth and Her peoples. We know we now live in a truly sacred
We encourage any person or group to bless the Earth. Here is the
ritual we used:
Obtain a map of the area and a highlighter pen
Draw your symbol on the map. We used our home as the
center. Use any symbol which means most to you.
a pentacle, an ankh, the Earth symbol, a medicine wheel,
celtic stome circle, or whatever feels right.
Decide where the "beginning" of the symbol is. For example
since our home was the center of the medicine wheel,
we created our home as a "mother stone" of the medicine
List the street locations of where the symbol falls on the
map. Or list where the 4 quarters or 5 points or whatever
and center of your symbol are.
Choose a time to consecrate the area. You may wish to visit the
the sites prior to the actual time of the ceremony. By pre-
viously checking each site we were able to find safe,
legal, public land.
On the day/time you have selected, each person and the group
dedicate themselfs to healing the Earth and Her Peoples.
Meditate, pray, call quarters, invoke dietys or whatever
is your way.
Then consecrate the area by Magickally "drawing" your symbol on
the area. As you go to each site, maintain an awareness that
you are blessing the entire area. Bless, dedicate, protect,
sanctify each site you have selected.
When you have completed the symbol, return to the center and
visualize the symbpl over the area healing the Earth, Raise
a cone of power to energize your creation and manifest
You may be amazed by the sites you find. We had Two country clubs,
hospitals, and several schools among our "stones." If more than one
group makes their symbol in an area SO MOTE IT BE! Earth will arrange
the energy as She needs. We chose the Medicine Wheel because it is of
the Magick of Turtle Island. We are all Earth. Each of our images have
power. It is the power of All that is, Earth, AND the people which make
the symbol holy.
