Exculpate 

We all get into trouble sometimes. This is to get us out again. Envision the bottom starting at your feet, and the spiral in your head.

Wisdom

At first I was reluctant to make this symbol, for fear that I would only access the energies of arrogance. I lay no claim to wisdom, but as I pondered wisdom of others and the pursuit of it, I reached beyond myself and found its energy, which formed itself into this symbol for us. May wisdom brighten all our lives.

Divination

Divining is more than interpreting symbols on the cards or in the clouds, in the tea leaves or the flames. After some time you begin to realize that it’s not the subject of your observation that’s imparting wisdom to you.

It is everything.

The universe, every second of your reality, is wrought with lessons and information. The universe is just waiting for you to listen, it never stopped whispering.

Motivation 

It’s not always easy to move forward, to get in motion, to feel inclined to continue. This symbol is motivation, the energy and shape of this much sought after quality.

The LBRP

(pic)
First, perform the Kabbalistic Cross.
It is a sign that the student is performing this correctly when a single “Vibration” entirely exhausts his physical strength. It should cause him to grow hot all over, or to perspire violently, and it should so weaken him that he will find it difficult to remain standing.
It is a sign of success, though only by the student himself is it perceived, when he hears the name of the God vehemently roared forth, as if by the concourse of ten thousand thunders; and it should appear to him as if that Great Voice proceeded from the Universe, and not from himself.)

Face East.


Imagine the world growing smaller beneath you. It is a small ball beneath your feet, and you tower into the heavens. 


There is a great white ball of divine light above you. Raise your first two fingers into the sphere, and pulling it down into your crown, touch your forehead. Vibrate (Imagine that your voice carries forward to the limits of the universe.)  ATEH (At-Ta —- First ‘a’ like in bard. Second ‘a’ like in father. Accent second syllable.). 


Touch the solar plexus, and draw the light down to form another sphere at your feet. Vibrate MALKUTH (MLKVTh, meaning “Kingdom”. Mal-Koot —- a as in bard. oo as in moon. Last syllable accent.).


Touch the right shoulder, forming a sphere of light just outside of it. Vibrate VE-GEVURAH (V-GBVRH, meaning “and Power”. Ve-Ge-boo-Ra —- ‘e’ both like the first in believe. ‘oo’ as in moon. ‘a’ as in father. Accent last syllable.).


Bring the hand across, creating a shaft of light from the sphere on your right to form another sphere outside your left shoulder. Vibrate VE-GEDULAH (V-GDVLH, meaning “AND THE GREATNESS” Ve-ge-doo-La —- e’s both like the first in believe. oo as in moon. a as in father. Accent last syllable. Note: This is an alternate name for Chesed, the fourth Sephira. Also, the Hebrew letter Vau is equivalent to the English conjunction “and” when used at the front of a word).


Clasping your hands on your chest, while holding in mind the cross formed in your body, vibrate LE-OLAHM (L-a’aVLM, meaning “FOR ETERNITY” or “FOR ALL THAT EXISTS” Le-a’a-o-La-m —- ‘e’ as first in believe. The “a’a” signifies a very light glottal stop; omit if too difficult. ‘o’ as in bore. ‘a’ as in father. The “La” is accented, but the sound should drop back to normal by the time you reach “m”.), AMEN.

The Hebrew letters stand for Y-H-Sh-W-H, or the pentagrammaton. This is a form of the name of Jesus, developed from the Tetragrammaton, the divine unspeakable name of god (YHVH some people just pronounce the letters, Yod-Heh-Vov-Heh. The Tetragrammaton; if there were an infinitive form in Hebrew of the verb “to be”, this would be it, but as it happens, the “being” verb is the only one in Hebrew that has no customarily-used infinitive form.) [Please note that the pronunciation given is not that of the Tetragrammaton according to the Hebrew. It is a Western variant. —Ed.]” More on the tetragrammaton: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetragrammaton
and the pentagrammaton: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahshuah )

Method for Calling the God Names

Breathe in deeply through the nostrils, imagining the name desired entering with the breath.


Let that name descend slowly from the lungs to the heart, the solar plexus, the navel, the generative organs, and so to the feet.


The moment that it appears to touch the feet, quickly advance the left foot about twelve inches, throw forward the body, and let the hands (drawn back to the side of the eyes) shoot out, so that you are standing in the typical position of the God Horus (pic), and at the same time imagine the Name as rushing up and through the body, while you breathe it out through the nostrils with the air which has been till then retained in the lungs. All this must be done with all the force of which you are capable.



Then withdraw the left foot, and place the right forefinger on the lips, so that you are in the characteristic position of the God Harpocrates. (pic)


The LBRP
(note: I suggest walking yourself through as you read this)

Draw a (usually a banishing earth for all directions. Some people do a banishing elemental pentagram for each associated direction) pentagram facing east, as large as your torso.  Imagine the pentagram as if it were carved into the fabric of the universe, as if it were burning. As you complete the pentagram, vibrate IHVH (“[יהוה] - Ye-ho-vah or Ye-ho-wah”)


Draw a line, a quarter of the circle, as you turn to face south. Visualize it bright white, scintillating and brilliant.


Draw a pentagram in the south (banishing earth or banishing fire). Vibrate ADNI (Ado-Nay —- “LORD” ‘A’ as in bard but shorter. ‘o’ as in bore. Last ‘a’ as in father. Accent second syllable.)


Draw a quarter of a circle, draw a pentagram (banishing earth or banishing water) facing west, and vibrate AHIH (EHEIEH, AHYH, meaning “I AM”. E-he-ye —- First ‘E’ like in met. Second ‘e’ like the first e in believe. Third ‘e’ like in met. Accent the first syllable.)


Draw a quarter of a circle, draw a pentagram in the north. Vibrate AGLA (AGLA, no direct meaning. This is a Noteriqon or mystical abbreviation of: AThH GBVR L-a’aVLM ADNY, Ateh Gibor Le-Olahm Adonai. That in turn means: “Thou art mighty forever O’Lord”. Pronunciation is also cryptic, but using the initials of the component words and their attendant vowel points, we get: A-gi-le-A —- ‘a’ as in bard. ‘i’ as in bit. ‘e’ as the first one in believe. ‘A’ as in bard. The last syllable should take the accent, but even syllabication is undecided.)


Return to the east, completing the circle.


Extend the arms in the form of a cross, and say: Before me Raphael (RPAL, meaning “GOD HEALS” Re-Fa-El —- ‘e’ as first one in believe. ‘a’ as in father. ‘e’ as in bet. Accent the last two syllables.); Behind me Gabriel (GBRYAL, meaning “GOD IS MIGHTY” Gab-Ri-El —- ‘a’ as in bard. ‘i’ as in police. ‘E’ as in bet. Accent the last two syllables.); On my right hand, Michael (MYKAL, meaning “LIKENESS OF GOD” Mi-Ka-El —- ‘i’ as in police. ‘K’ like a light clearing of the throat. ‘a’ as in father. ‘E’ as in bet. Accent the last two syllables.); On my left hand, Auriel (URIEL, ARIEL, AVRYAL, meaning “LIGHT OF GOD”, oo-Ri-El —- (The initial Aleph is silent —- no “a” sound here) ‘oo’ as in moon. ‘i’ as in police. ‘e’ as in bet. Accent the last two syllables.) For about me flames the Pentagram, And in the Column stands the six-rayed Star.



Perform the Kabbalistic Cross again.


 
(pic)
Short Version

Touching the forehead, say Ateh.


Touching the breast, say Malkuth.


Touching the right shoulder, say ve-Geburah.


Touching the left shoulder, say ve-Gedulah.


Clasping the hands upon the breast, say le-Olam, AMEN.



Turning to the East, make a pentagram (that of Earth) with the proper weapon (usually the Wand). Say (i.e., vibrate) IHVH.


Turning to the South, the same, but say ADNI.


Turning to the West, the same, but say AHIH.


Turning to the North, the same, but say AGLA.


Extend the arms in the form of a cross, and say, Before me Raphael; Behind me Gabriel; On my right hand, Michael; On my left hand, Auriel; For about me flames the Pentagram, And in the Column stands the six-rayed Star.


Repeat 1 to 5, the “Qabalistic Cross.”

Reinstate Sanity 

Sometimes the path we travel can leave us feeling a little unstable. The occult in particular can confuse a person’s mind when they begin to experience things they cannot explain or share. Sometimes it’s best to do some mental strengthening and bring yourself back to a more stable state.

officialyesii asked me about the symbol at the top of my blog. I came across it at unurthed.com, and this is what he has to say about it. 

"The Sign of Creation, Manifestation, and Materialization: An affirmation of the Hex rule ‘As above, so below’, and of man’s power to create through mental and spiritual action. The flanking symbols are Earth-Star signs, calling for all the good things of earth and earthly joys” (p115).

“A Hex knows a thought to be a thing — a form with an electronic force field, so when he arranges his motifs what he is really doing is sending out into the universe a telepathic blueprint image of what he wishes materialized. Nature is so constituted that the image tends to be materialized and sent back. To be a witch, one must be able to send sustained images far enough out to attract enough energy to effect the materialization…” (p316).

The process I use

graycloak asked me about the process I use to make the symbols, and I meant to post it publicly, so here is my response.

Sure! The process is different than the usual, though I believe it was built off of it some time ago. It occurred naturally.

When I find a concept or energy I realize would be beneficial to have access to again, I grab paper as quickly as I can, so as not to lose a grasp on it. I ride the flow of the energy, taking the whole conceptual entity into my awareness and understanding. I get as close to being the idea as possible. I let that flow out of me, I let it form a shape in me, and transcribe it to paper. The symbols aren’t formed on the paper, they are like a three dimensional construct that the idea becomes inside me. When I let it out onto the paper, it usually forms right away, sometimes a little adjusting is required until it ‘rings’ with the concept, as it were. The symbol isn’t done if it doesn’t shine the idea back at me, or if I can’t use it to call back the exact form of the concept.

In this way, I consider the symbols to truly embody the energy, instead of just calling my mind back the idea as a normal sigil would (though they are quite effective regardless).

Relinquishing A Habit 

I made this symbol when I witnessed someone give up a powerful addiction to drinking. I used it myself to let go of smoking. It embodies the entire process, holding the concept and energy within its lines. 

May it benefit you in the same way.

Expect Nothing

Expectation gets in the way of a great deal, inner peace in particular. Our desires and resulting expectations of anything, good or bad, red white orange or green, inhibit all actions. If you, instead, expect nothing, you are not surprised or stirred by any event. You can act consciously and quickly, and live according to your will instead of the whims of your chemical emotions.

Memory

This symbol represents the process of strong mental information. It can be used to strengthen the memory, recall memories, or store new memories. Symbols can be used in any way that works for you, but they work well as energetic three dimensional constructs. I place the sphere within my brain, and pull back what I’m trying to memorize with the other lines. If you’re trying to remember something, reverse the direction, pointing the stems into your past.
