Invoke

It is easy to remember this term if you associate invoke with "invite".   It is like placing a call which may or may not be answered, allowing freedom and respect to the energy invoked.  When you invoke something you invite it into your energy realm, or in some traditions, even into yourself . . .  

There is an element of respect, honor, and supplication in the word invoke.  You invoke deities for inspiration, assistance or to celebrate. 

There is also an element of vocalization to the word invoke.  An invocation is usually spoken, sung or chanted aloud, and \"Words of Power\" are often used.

For example, you might invoke the Goddess and God for a Sabbat celebration, welcoming them to join your circle and the festivities.  You might also invoke the Goddess into yourself during the \Drawing Down the Moon\" ritual.

Latin invocare, to call upon or implore, related to vox (voice)

See the Reference Shelf for \"Words of Power\" and note the difference between Invoke and Evoke"
