Once the Directions are called, say:

The Directions are called, the Circle is cast and we are now in Sacred Space.”

-or-

The Directions are called, the Circle is cast and we are now between the worlds.”

Now you do your healing work, meditation, channelling or Liturgy/Rite from the Fellowship of Isis. Sacred Space is also a very nice space to do crafts or art work in.

When you are finished with your healing work or Rite, your Sacred Space must be closed. Remember to Release the Directions and give thanks to the energies that participated and assisted you in your circle.

Release the Directions and all the energies, Deities and Archetypes that were called upon in REVERSE order that they were called. The last direction called is released first.

You spiralled up the energy when you called in the directions to open Sacred Space, now you must “unwind” the directions to close it.

Here are some suggested closings. Create, choose and group as you wish:

We give thanks to the Energies of the Sacred Center for sharing your Divine Blessings with us today. We release you. You are free to go.” And/or “Hail and Farewell” and/or “Blessed Be!” or “So Be It!” or “And So It Is!” or “So mote it be!”

Releasing order: Sacred Center, the Below, the Above, the North, West, South and East.

Once you have released the Directions, you may finish off with:

The Circle is open, yet unbroken. Blessed Be!”

-or-

The Circle is open, yet unbroken. Merry meet, Merry part and merry meet again. Blessed Be!”

Additional notes:

It is a good practice to smudge/purify yourself and the others who are to enter your Sacred Space. This action clears away negative energy that you acquired during the day.

This can be done with smoldering sage. For more options on smudging and purification see my article on Smudging and Purification on the Spiritual Tools page of my website www.keystoascension.com or click on the hyperlink. If you came here first, check out my video on Calling in the Directions.

Enjoy!

Many Blessings and Divine Gratitude,

Gayle Mack
