Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong?
That expressing you voice was a dangerous thing to do?
Were you ever excluded from a benefit other people enjoyed because you appeared different from the majority (read: those in power?)
Or, were you ever afraid for your life just for simply existing, loving, believing, or being visible in ways that are authentic to you?
In the process of standing up for ourselves, for what is right, and for a better world, it is easy to get discouraged, to feel alone, or to get overwhelmed and tired.
I wanted to write a healing invocation for those of you who are feeling the aliveness of oppression – in your bodies, in your energy field, or in your daily lives.
Healing Invocation For The Oppressed And Marginalized
I call forth my Guides, Angels, Ancestors, and Ascended Light Beings
To surround me today in pure white light.
I resonate with the guidance that came before me
From foremothers and forefathers who created what they did
So my existence would bring forth light and healing into this world.
For I know my existence in it matters.
My knowledge is needed.
My authenticity and being of my soul in its purest form
Is vital to the elevation of our collective consciousness.
And must be heard
By any means necessary.
But, I also acknowledge
That being a warrior of light
Also means that I must carve out time for self-care
To make room for softness to balance out the rough edges
To make play and pleasure a sacred part of my life
Have downtime for nothingness
And allow myself to be comfortable with that once and a while.
I realize I am precious.
I honor my Crown Chakra at the top of my head,
And acknowledge that I am one with the Great Spirit and never truly alone.
I honor my Third Eye Chakra between my brows,
And trust my Intuition to help me see past what I physically see in front of me.
I honor my Throat Chakra at the base of my neck,
And speak my truth easily and communicate my needs effortlessly.
I honor my Heart Chakra in the center of my chest,
So I may connect with my love and compassion for myself and others,
And access my all-knowing Higher Self,
That version of myself that is deeply tapped into my purest expression of love, wisdom, and power.
I honor my Solar Plexus Chakra two inches above my navel,
For it is the seat of my power, and allows me to feel confident who I am.
I honor my Sacral Plexus Chakra two inches below my navel,
So that I may be connected to my emotions and sexuality in healthy ways, and be at full expression of my creativity.
I honor my Root Chakra between my genitals and anus,
So I may be grounded in my security as a human being, and be tied to tribe and family in ways that sustain me.
I am connected to Mother Gaia
Through the soles of my feet.
Roots emanate from the balls of my feet,
Extending and intertwining with other roots deep within the clay and bedrock,
Gaining red earth nourishment,
That brings new rejuvenation back upwards into my body, sinews, bones, muscles, and flesh.
At the same time,
I send love into Mother Gaia from my roots,
With deep gratefulness for sharing her abundance.
Because I am more than what I physically see around me and in my mirror.
I am connected to, and part of, the Divine that creates us all.
Everything is energy,
And, I am energy.
I have the ability to shift things in my life that no longer serve me,
And do so easily through the power of my words, actions, and intention.
Because magic is reality,
I believe in my ability to carve out the type of life that makes me whole.
I am sustained on all levels,
And, I am held with gentleness as I grow.
I am at peace.
With much love,
