    • Statement of Intent (“It is my will to… XYZ …harming none.”)
    • Correspondences/Mantra/Energy Work
    • Sigil > Candle > Tool
    • Altar/Temple/Offerings/Ritual Bath/Robes
    • Music?

 

 

OPENING

  • Open Temple: Smudging, Light candles/incense, Chimes, Rosy Cross, 93’s, etc.
    • Example 1: I cast this circle in the name of the Most High, the TETRAGRAMMATON, whom we all serve, as a space between the Worlds where all things are made possible through Thine and my Will. As Above, so Below, as Within, so Without. So mote it be!
    • Example 2: ABRAHADABRA!  I have spoken, and declare this temple duly open. Let us piece the Veil, and for a time, we leave the Mortal World behind.

 

 

  • Qabbalistic Cross/Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP)
    • Example 1: Yellow, red, blue, and green… e’er the stars about me seen. Uriel, Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, guard against all that would thwart my true will.
    • Example 2: ΑΠΟ, ΠΑΝΤΟΣ ΚΑΚΟΔΑΙΜΟΝΟΣ! (APOP PANTOS KAKADAIMONOIS)

 

 

  • Optional: LIRP, LBRH, MP, Star Ruby/Sapphire, etc.
    • East Example: By the sigil of the lemniscate, I open first the Eastern Gate! By the hot, wet winds where the Sylphs do dwell, ‘neath the Airy Throne of Raphael… Twixt us and our minds do ye now make way, As I invoke the Godname YHVH!
    • South Example: By the sigil of the lemniscate, I open next the Southern Gate! By the hot, dry flames where Salamanders dwell, ‘neath the Fiery Throne of Michael… Bring death to Because and ask not why, As I invoke the Godname ADNI!
    • West Example: By the sigil of the lemniscate, I open third the Western Gate! By the cold, wet waves where the Undines dwell, ‘neath the Watery Throne of Gabriel… Love under will we e’er obey, As I invoke the Godname EHIH!
    • North Example: By the sigil of the lemniscate, I open last the Northern Gate! By the cold, dry earth where the Gnomes do dwell, ‘neath the Earthy Throne of Uriel… From the infinite current we do now draw, As I invoke the Godname AGLA! For the Mortal Veil is left behind. Walk we now among the gods divine!

 

  • Offerings: candles, incense, alcohol, tobacco, fruit, etc.
    • Example: In gratitude we make this offering to any and all entities present, or who will be further called by this working. The incense is of a scent we believe to be pleasing to you, that you will lend favorable aid to the Great Work we set about.

 

 

 

SPELLWORK

  • Charging: Visualization (Form + Force) as in the moment; entering object to be charged. 10-20 minutes (que music) of energy work (trance, dance, poetry, speaking in tongues) at least. Object should feel “heavier” or other hallucinations may occur to indicate the object is properly charged.
    • Example 1: Know we true that all creation, all spirit, form, and deviation, from imagination to manifestation, and each variation of that permutation… above, below have correlation. Our concentration is activation, communication of transformation, across the cosmic civilization. This is the foundation of our operation, for all that is… is but vibration.
    • Example 2: This is now our comprehension, that matter is energy’s last extension. Vibrating far too slow to mention, But all the same ‘neath Saturn’s tension… Still… some forms boast of more retention, to hold a suspension of our attention. And empowered, a vehicle for its ascension, In accordance with laws of magickal convention, to the astral realms shaping our dimension, and fill the void of our truest intention.

 

  • Relax: (light candle/destroy sigil) trance but let go (so you can set it and forget it). Let incense/candles burn down completely (do not leave unattended!)… OK to relight unburnt candles later.

 

CLOSING

  • Thank/License to Depart
    • Example 1: Collect for the End (from Liber XV) Unto them from whose eyes the veil of life hath fallen may there be granted the accomplishment of their true Wills; whether they will absorption in the Infinite, or to be united with their chosen and preferred, or to be in contemplation, or to be at peace, or to achieve the labour and heroism of incarnation on this planet or another, or in any Star, or aught else, unto them may there be granted the accomplishment of their wills; yea, the accomplishment of their wills. AUMGN (x3)
    • Example 2: Here me, and make all entities subject unto Me; so that every Spirit of the Firmament, and of the Ether: upon the Earth and under the Earth, on dry Land and in the Water, of whirling Air and of rushing Fire: and every spell and scourge of God may be obedient unto me. Return ye now to your homes and habitations, harming none along your way, to manifest in accordance with our Higher Selves this Great Work that we have set in motion. In the name of the Most High, the TETRAGRAMMATON, whom we all serve. So mote it be!
    • Example 3: Stay all if ye will, go now if ye must, for between us ever is perfect Love and Trust.

 

  • Optional: LBRH, et al…
    • Example: Gates First and Second, Third and Fourth, are shut East and South and West and North. Upon solid Earth we do now stand, and there is peace throughout the land. The Mortal Veil is again reformed, for it is wewho art transformed. Lies told of lies are the only truth, so let success e’er be our proof.  May our True Wills go forth unopposed, as I declare this temple duly closed.

 

  • Qabbalistic Cross/Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP)
    • Example 1: Yellow, red, blue, and green… e’er the stars about me seen. Uriel, Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, guard against all that would thwart my true will.
    • Example 2: ΑΠΟ, ΠΑΝΤΟΣ ΚΑΚΟΔΑΙΜΟΝΟΣ! (APOP PANTOS KAKADAIMONOIS)

 

  • Close Temple: Extinguish candles, Chimes, 93’s, etc.

 

  • Set it and forget it! Go do something else to keep your conscious mind distracted for the next three hours/days/weeks! Your intent will manifest when you least expect it…
