This invocation to Vac (Vak), the primordial creative power of word, was my offering for the Reclaiming Spiral Dance this year (part of the deity invocation).
Invocation to Vac
Vac, goddess of speech
You cascaded on to Earth, irrepressible as rain--
filled with the power of creation--
bringing to life, filling with life, flow of vital expression--
May we craft through words, silence, and their weaving
justice and cosmic balance.
Show us that language, like water, is fluid
Make our tongues supple enough to call out Truth.
To name and make it so.
Flow wisdom into us, gift of intuition, power of perception.
Open our sight to insight—help us see what we must see,
bring wisdom and peace as siddhis in the world.
Show us how to imbue with dignity
everything we perceive and name.
Through our words, restore
balance on Earth, mysteries of harmony.
