I am going to begin posting the finalists for the magical technique contest, and in a couple of weeks will post the winner. I am posting those techniques I have found the most interesting, useful, and simple (within the scope of what they’re trying to do, of course: some are more complex than others, as you’ll see). If I don’t post your submission it isn’t that I didn’t find it interesting or useful, but that it might not fit with the tone of the blog, be entirely clear, or too similar to another technique that is explained more clearly.
Our first finalist offers offers a seemingly simple, but very effective technique. This technique requires nothing in the way of material and can be used as a handy warmup or quick practice in a number of basic magical skills. It was submitted by Akenu:
This is called a Sacred chamber ritual, I developed it during my priesthood month while thinking about what’s so Qabbalistic regarding the QCoL.
Effects I get from the ritual (and few other people who tried):
-immediate feeling of being centered and grounded-refreshing feeling-feeling of attained authority, but probably linked with the grounding effect.-when performed before going to sleep there is an improvement in the sleep process.
Procedure:Stand still and take few deep breaths.Visualize about 1ft wide orb of white light about 1 or 2 feet above your head.Point at the orb with your index finger and say: “Crown above my head, Kether”.Visualize a ray of the white light descending through your body down to the core of Earth while guiding it with your index finger.Say: “Kingdom under my feet, Malkuth”.Open your arms like you are welcoming someone and during opening your arms, visualize the ray of the light becoming thicker and thicker till it covers the whole room or space around you. During this say “Through the worlds”.When you are finished, standing with your hands wide open, say “Back to the Adam Kadmon”.
