How to call on Gaia:

 

In the beginning were the four Elements: Earth (Gaia), Water (Pontus), Air (Chaos), and Sky (Ouranos) (some say Gaia emerged from Chaos and then gave birth to Ouranos and Pontus). As Gaia was the only female, she had the pick of the litter, so to speak. Ouranos caught her eye and they wed (Note: incest was not a problem for the Ancient Greeks). They were a busy pair! Gaia had somewhere between 30 and 50 children, depending on the tale. I bet she was tired! Call on Gaia when you need help nurturing yourself or with any projects you are creating or birthing.
