Used for the invokation and banishing of the four classical elements originates from the “Keys of Solomon”
Casting Instructions for ‘Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram’
The element which is getting invoked or banished depends solely on the way that you trace the pentagram
The method to trace them correcponding with the element is as follows:
Invoking – shirt right to top left coner
Banishing – top left to top right corner
Invoking – top mid to bottom right corner
Banishing – bottom right to top middle corner
Invoking – top left to top right corner
Banishing – shirt right to top left corner
Invoking – top middle to bottom left corner
Banishing – bottom left to top middle corner
First take the steel dagger in your hand (you can use your right index finger instead of a dagger)
Perform the Qabalistic Cross as follows:
Imagine, at the first word intoned, a brilliant white light descend from above.
Touch the forehead and vibrate
Imagine that same brilliant white light form a 6 inch diameter sphere just above the crown of the head.
Touch the middle of the solar plexus and vibrate
Envision a shaft of light descending from the Crown Sphere and descend to the feet where another 6 inch sphere expands just beneath your feet.
Touch the right shoulder and vibrate
Imagine a 6 inch sphere of brilliant white light appear just beside the right shoulder.
Touch the left shoulder and vibrate
Envision a shaft of light emerge from the ideal Sphere and cross your breast to enlarge and form another Sphere at your left shoulder.
Clasp the hands before you and vibrate
At this point envision clearly the cross of light as it extends through your body.
Hands as before, with the dagger between the fingers, point upward, vibrate
Note: Any picture or figure traced in the air with the finger, dagger or other magic instrument, is to be imagined in vibrant scintillating white Light. In more advanced working, other colors may be used. Be certain all images drawn are right, as brilliant as possible, and finish. The start and end of a drawn Pentagram should come completely together.
Draw, in the air facing EAST, a Pentagram (it is tracing wau depends which elemt you Want to invoke or banish), and bringing the point of the dagger into the center of the Pentagram, vibrate the Name
Imagine that your voice carries forward into the very limits of the world.
Without moving the dagger (or finger) in any other direction, trace a semicircle before you as you turn toward the SOUTH. Again trace the Pentagram, bring the dagger/finger to the Middle of it, and vibrate the Name
Again, trace the semicircle with the dagger into the WEST, trace the Pentagram, bringing the dagger/finger to the center, and vibrate the Name
Then, turn towards the NORTH, while tracing the circle, follow the Pentagram, bring the point of the dagger to the center and vibrate the Name
, (can be pronounced either AH-GAH-LAH or ATAH GIBOR LE-OLAHM ADONAI)
Return to the EAST, finishing tracing the circle of brilliant white Light, bringing the dagger point to the middle of the EAST Pentagram.
Extend the arms in the form of a cross, say:
BEFORE ME (then vibrate)
Imagine a scintillating brilliant white Archangel before you and facing you. In his/her right hand is a magical Sword held with the point vertical. The background is a light, pure, glowing yellow. Cherubs can be imagined close to the Archangel. Imagine a gentle, refreshing breeze, cleansing and purifying the air.
Imagine a scintillating brilliant white Archangel behind you and facing you, holding in their right hand an exquisite silver Chalice. He/she is standing on a Cerulean-blue sea and dolphins or mermaids are nearby. Imagine feeling the mist and cool spray of the sea breeze.
AT MY RIGHT HAND
Imagine a scintillating brilliant white Archangel at your right, facing you, and holding in their right hand a transparent scarlet red Wand using a scintillate pure diamond top. Length of scarlet, red-orange and orange flame in the background. Also, SEKHMET, with a scarlet disc above her head, emerald green Uraeus, scarlet dress from just below breasts, tight-fitting down to her ankles, is at the flames. She retains, in her left hand, a scarlet-red lotus wand. In her right hand, she holds an emerald-green ankh. Little black salamanders can be seen moving among the fires. Imagine you feel the warmth and electricity emanating from the SOUTH.
AT MY LEFT HAND
Imagine a scintillating brilliant white Archangel in your left, facing you, and holding between their palms a Disk with a scintillating white Pentagram at the middle. The ground is russet-brown, the leaves of these trees are olive-green, there are black shadows from the trees in numerous areas, and the light is citrine (light yellow-green.) Feel the solidity of the Earth, and imagine the odor of the leaves and muskiness of the ground.
ABOUT ME FLAMES THE PENTAGRAMS, AND IN THE COLUMN SHINES THE SIX-RAYED STAR
Imagine the entire circle of brilliant white light at whose quadrants are the 4 Pentagrams. In the center is the Cabbalistic Cross of Light extended through the body.
Then you shall repeat the Qabalistic cross, as done in the start of the ritual, and, based on some occultists, stamp your right foot at the finish of the comprehensive operation. The Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram is performed preliminary to any magical operation and precedes the Invoking Ritual of the Pentagram.
Note: The topic of the vibration of Names of Electricity is discussed at length in other resources. The Names must be pronounced inwardly from the breath, vibrating it as much as possible and feeling that the entire body throbs with the noise and sends out a wave of vibration directed to the ends of the Earth, based on Regardie. Time and constant practice of the ritual, an invoking ritual, in the daytime and a banishing ritual, in the evening, are standard recommendations, and will create the desired outcome. There’s no particular frequency or degree of volume that is acceptable for every individual. Each person must practice to find the resonant vibration which will work for him/her. Some benefit can be obtained by listening to the chants of Tibetan Monks which can be found on cassette and CD. Other occultists assert that definite somatic effects will manifest when the vibrated Names are performed properly, such as tingling in certain areas of the body. I believe it is important to vibrate the Names at the same time one imagines the Title in scintillate white Light, rushing up through the body and outwards toward the end of the Universe in the particular direction one is working with. It’s important to pronounce the Names correctly and clearly and, according to Traditional Jewish resources, never announce the Names casually, but only in Holy or Theurgic Work. One is admonished to NEVER lower the hand or Magical Instrument whilst tracing the Circle or at any other time, unless specifically instructed to do so. It’s designed to use the banishing variation of the ritual after it’s invoking variation.
