After the cutscene - warp to Dragon Roost Island in order to find Medli. Enter the home of the Rito and exit out through the top of the spiral trail. Turn right and use the Grappling Hook to swing across the gap. Climb up the ledge and small ladder to find Medli.
One the short cutscene with Medli ends pull out the Wind Waker. Simply play the Earth God's Lyric to teach it to Medli and open up her inner knowledge of being a sage of the Earth Temple. Now travel back to C7 where you learned the Earth God's Lyric. Go back inside the room on the island play the Earth God's Lyric in front of the stone tablet in order to unlock the entrance to the Earth Temple.
Once inside, pick up Medli and jump across to the door while holding her. Take Medli through the door and travel up the stairs on the left of the room. Jump across to the pillar using Medli to float across. Now play the Command Melody and make Medli fly over to the other pillar and press the switch.
Switch back to Link and press the other switch to unlock the door ahead. Control Medli once more and move her to the door. Use Link to pick her up and go through the door. In this room play the Command Melody to gain control of Medli. Use her Harp to reflect the light beam at the invisible chest on the small platform to get the Dungeon Map.
Make sure to also shine the light at the Purple Chuchus to turn them to stone. Use the Skull Hammer to smash the petrified Purple Chuchus and then kill the others with the sword to unlock the door forward. Before leaving this room be sure to break the wooden planks blocking the top of the cauldron.
In the next room take control of Medli. Use her to shine right light beam into the fog in order to uncover a stake. Now switch back to Link and use the Skull Hammer and smash it to unlock the next door. Enter through the door to find some coffins and another invisible chest.
Simply climb up the ladder on the left side of the room and pull the block towards you until it fall into the grove. This will cause a beam of light to shine into the room. Now take control of Medli and shine the light beam onto the chest to acquire a small key.
Pick up Medli and head back through the door we came from after making to kill the Floormasters. Travel to the locked door directly in front of the one you just went through. Now use the Fire Arrows to burn the curtain on the wall to the left to allow light into the room.
Make sure to kill all of the Chuchu except the Purple ones. Now stand in the center of the light and wait for the Purple Chuchus to jump into it and become petrified. Pick them up and place them on the switches and run up the newly spawned stairs.

Kill the Floormaster and then push the block nearest the door towards the fall to open up a beam of light.

Now use Link to push or pull all of the blocks as far as possible so they fall into their respective grooves and unlock the door forward as well as spawn a chest containing the Compass. Pick up Medli and travel through the door.
Kill all of the Moblins in this room and then fly Medli onto the upper ledge with the light beam. Shine the light at the poes in order to make them vulnerable. Now use Link to kill them with the sword. This will unlock a small set of stairs but do not go up them just yet.

Earth Temple Mini-boss: Stalfos
Defeating the Stalfos is actually quite simple. Run up to it and attack it repeatedly with the sword. If the Stalfos starts acting like it is about to attack, throw the boomerang at it to stun it. After several attacks with the sword the body will break down leaving the head. Attack the head repeatedly in order to defeat the Stalfos. There will be a total of 3 of these you will have to defeat.
Once all of the Stalfos are defeated a chest will spawn containing the Mirror Shield. Use the Mirror Shield to shine a beam of light onto the emblem above the door in order to unlock it. Go through the door and back down the stairs to defeat all of the creatures once more.
Take control of Medli and fly back up to the light beam and reflect towards the chest on the opposite side of the room. While holding this position switch back over to Link. Use the Mirror Shield to reflect the light beam back across the room onto the yellow symbol beneath Medli.
Now pick up Medli and travel into the newly opened passage and through the door. Use Medli to float across the fog to the other side of the room. Carry Medli through the door where we got the first small key and place her on the switch near the door.
Go inside the door to find a light beam and a wall with yellow symbols. Use the Mirror Shield to shine the light beam onto the yellow symbols to unlock a chest containing a Joy Pendant. Travel back through the door and carry Medli back to the room with the fog.

Continue down the spiral stairs to find a draw bridge. Kill the floating creatures with ice arrows and carry Medli across the bridge to the stone tablet. Now play the Earth God's Lyric to unlock a door. Pick up Medli and go through the door.
Kill all of the ReDeads in this room and then use the Mirror Shield to shine light on the statue in the middle of the room as well as the statue on the right of the room. Grab Medli and enter the door. This room will be full of fog and Floormasters. Simply roll quickly down the center of the room to find a chest containing a small key.
Pick up Medli and return to the previous room. Stand in the beam of light and reflect it onto the mirror on the left side of the room to break the statue. Take Medli with you through the door that was behind the statue. Leave Medli near the door and quickly roll through the fog to the other side of the room.
Pull the Mirror into the grove near it and then smash the stake atop the ledge to create a beam of light. Roll back through the fog and take Medli back through the door. Now throw Medli onto the ledge next to the locked door. Push the block over and then jump across to the ledge.
Take Medli through the door and then kill off the creatures that are lurking around. Use Medli to shine the light towards the wall to the right of the gate where the light is shining from and then switch back to Link. Use the Mirror Shield to reflect the light back towards the statue on the opposite wall to unlock a door.
Pick up Medli and go through the door. If you take the path right in front of you there will be a chest containing a Red Rupee. The path to the right of where you came leads to a stone tablet. Carry Medli over to the stone tablet and then play the Earth God's Lyric after killing off the Stalfos and other enemies.
Getting the Big Key
Take Medli with you through the door and down the spiral stairs. Use a bomb to blow up the rock that resides on the cauldron. Use Medli to float down to the bottom set of stairs and enter the door that is at the bottom of these stairs. Take control of Medli and fly over to the switch in the center of the room.
Step on it to spawn a beam of light from the ceiling and then fall down to the lower level of the room. Switch back to Link and push the mirror over to the groove on the right side of the room where the light is shining. Use Link and climb onto the small pedestal where the light is shining.
Now use the Mirror Shield to shine light onto the statue towards the center of the room and then pull the mirror that appears behind it until it reaches the groove where the light is shining. Take control of Medli and fly onto the small pedestal where Link just was and shine light towards the other pedestal to the left.
Use Link and the Mirror Shield to reflect the light onto the yellow symbols on the wall opposite of the pedestal to unblock another mirror. Pull it out and continue pulling it until it reaches the groove where the light is shining. Run to the opposite side of the room and pull another mirror into the groove where the light now shines.
Follow the light beam to the next pedestal and then use the Mirror Shield to reflect the light onto the statue toward the center of the room to unlock another mirror. Pull it into the groove and then take control of Medli. Make Medli fly onto the pedestal where Link just was and shine light towards the shorter pedestal nearby.
While holding that position take control of Link and reflect the light towards the yellow symbols on the wall nearby to unlock another mirror. Pull the last mirror out and onto the groove. Now take control of Medli and place her on the pedestal near the face where the light beams now shine.
Use her to reflect the light onto one of the eyes of the face and then take control of Link. Climb onto the pedestal opposite of Medli's and then reflect the light onto the other eye of the face in order to unlock a passage forward.
Head down the stairs and through the door. Defeat all of the enemies in this room to unlock a chest that contains the Big Key. Now head back to the large circular room and climb up the stairs and the vines to get to the top. Once at the top use the Deku Leaf to float over to the boss door and enter it to battle the boss of the dungeon - Jalhalla.
Earth Temple Boss: Jalhalla
Jalhalla is a large poe formed by many smaller ones. In order to defeat Jalhalla you must use the Mirror Shield whenever a light beam is available to shine light onto the large poe in order to stun him. Pick up Jalhalla and throw him into the large spikes on the corners of the room to split it into many smaller poes.
Now attack and kill all of the smaller ones you can before Jalhalla reforms. Repeat until all of the smaller poes are defeated and Jalhalla will be no more. Once you have defeated the boss grab the Heart Container and then go into the portal for a cutscene with Medli and Laruto. After the cutscene - the Master Sword will recover some of its lost energy.
