invocation this is written in acknowledgement, appreciation, thanks and praise of the ones who came before, the ones who pave the way visibly and invisibly, the ones who move heaven and earth so that we can continue the work, full of faith, full of vigor, full of favor and full of love. i ask now that our ancestors, guardians, angels & spirit guides be present within these pages, ready, eager and exceedingly able to assist whomever needs assistance. May this space be blessed and hallowed ground, a shelter and a safe space, an oasis in a desert, an invitation to lay your burdens down and know that you are loved, heard, welcomed, supported & never, ever alone. we do this because there is nothing else to do. we were made for such a world as this. we know who we are, we know what we are, we know how we serve. we are here.
