the supreme invoking ritual

of the pentagram

 

While The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram only keeps out unwelcome intruders, the Supreme Invoking Ritual takes a more active approach. To perform the Supreme Invoking ritual you need to know more about Pentagrams than it takes to perform the Lesser Banishing one.

In general the Pentagram symbolises freedom of creation in conformity with the will of God. The very top point of the pentagram represents Spirit ruling the four elements represented by the four remaining points below: Fire is bottom right, Water is top right, Air is top left, and Earth is bottom left. Learn these directions by heart before you continue.

Pentagrams invoke specific forces depending on from which corner and in which direction you begin to draw them, which symbols you trace in their centers, and which names of power you vibrate during the operation. For example, you draw element invoking pentagrams beginning with a line towards the corner of the specific element you wish to invoke. When you need to banish the element again, draw a pentagram beginning with a line from the specific element in the opposite direction.

Apart from the godnames, the Supreme Invoking Ritual includes a number of powers related to the elements: The four kerubim, the man, the lion, the eagle and the bull, who are Kings of the elements residing at the level of Tiphareth; the Tablet of Union names (in the Enochian 'angelic language' described by John Dee in the 15th century) related to specific dimensions of Spirit; the Angelic Tablet names invoking angelic powers related to the specific element; and the signs of the Elemental Grades from the magical community The Golden Dawn.

This ritual works with all four elements at once, at the four quarters. The invocation (or banishing) of each element begins with a Spirit Pentagram that equilibrates specific elements and harmonizes their influence. It is followed by an Element Pentagram that invokes (or banishes) the element.

Here you go:

A Perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, thereby creating a safe and controlled space of operation.

B Perform The Qabalistic Cross facing East.

C Invoke The Four Elements, one by one. Use either the extended forefinger of your right hand or a dagger. Keeping the arm straight, inscribe by the use of your imagination the prescribed pentagrams with the point up in the air in front of you. Visualize the lines composing each pentagram in flaming blue light. *

1 East/Air. Still facing East, make the Equlibrated Active Invoking Pentagram of Spirit:

Balance the two active elements Fire and Air by starting the Spirit Pentagram with the line between them from the bottom up, that is, bottom right (fire) to top left (air). (In closing (banishing) you reverse the current.). Vibrate the Tablet of Union name "Exarp" while making the Spirit pentagram (for Element of Air). *

Make a wheel in the centre of the pentagram (symbolizing Spirit) while vibrating the godname "Eheieh" (for Air as an active element). Visualize that the pentagram is now loaded with the divine energy of the godname. *

Make the Invoking Pentagram of Air:

The Air element is invoked by the pentagram that starts with the line from Water to Air (and banished when starting in the opposite direction with Air back to Water). While drawing the pentagram the name "Oro Ibah Aozpi" is vibrated. *

Trace the sigil of Aquarius in its centre, referring to the kerubic sign of Air, while vibrating the godname "YHVH" (for Element of Air). Feel that the pentagram is charged with energy. *

Finish with the sign of the Elemental grade of Theoricus (2=9): Bend both arms at the elbow, keep the hands at the level of the head, palms upwards as if supporting a great weight. *

2 South/Fire. Trace the blue flame with your finger or dagger from the east pentagram to the South. Facing South, make the Equlibrated Active Invoking Pentagram of Spirit:

Balance the two active elements Fire and Air by starting the Spirit pentagram with the line between them from the bottom up, that is, bottom right (fire) to top left (air). (In closing (banishing) you reverse the current.) While making the pentagram vibrate the Tablet of Union name "Bitom" (for Element of Fire). *

Make the wheel in the centre while vibrating the godname "Eheieh" (for Fire as an active element). The Pentagram glows with energy. *

Make the Invoking Pentagram of Fire:

The Fire element is invoked by the pentagram that starts with the line from Spirit to Fire (and banished when starting in the opposite direction with Fire back to Spirit.). While drawing the pentagram vibrate the Angelic Tablet name "Oip Teaa Pedoce". *

Trace the sigil of Leo in its centre, referring to the kerubic sign, and vibrate the godname "Elohim" (for the Element of Fire). Feel the pentagram glowing. *

Finish with the sign of the Elemental grade of Philosophus (4=7): form a triangle apex upwards on the forehead (at Daath) with the thumbs and index fingers of both hands. Keep the elbows level with the shoulders. *

3 West/Water. Turn west, bringing the blue flame of the pentagrams with you. Make the Equlibrated Passive Invoking Pentagram of Spirit:

Balance the two passive elements Earth and Water by starting the Spirit pentagram with the line between them from the bottom up, that is, bottom left (earth) to top right (water). (In closing (banishing) you reverse this current.) While making the pentagram vibrate the Tablet of Union name "Hcoma" (for Element of Water). *

Make the wheel in the centre while vibrating the godname "Agla" (for Water as a passive element). The pentagram glows. *

Make the Invoking Pentagram of Water:

The Water element is invoked by the pentagram that starts with the line from Air to Water, and banished when starting in the opposite direction with Water back to Air. Vibrate the Angelic Tablet name "Empeh Arsel Gaiol" in making the pentagram. *

Trace the sigil of the Eagle in its centre (referring to the kerubic sign of Scorpio for the element of Water), and vibrate the godname "El". The pentagram glows with divine energy. *

Finish with the sign of the Elemental grade of Practicus (3=8): form a triangle apex downward on your stomach (at Yesod) with the thumbs and index fingers of both hands. *

4 North/Earth. Turn to the North, tracing the blue flame from West to North. Make the Equlibrated Passive Invoking Pentagram of Spirit:

Balance the two passive elements Earth and Water by starting the Spirit pentagram with the line between them from the bottom up, that is, bottom left (earth) to top right (water). (In closing (banishing) you reverse this current). While making the pentagram vibrate the Tablet of Union name "Nanta" (for Element of Earth). *

Make the wheel in the centre while vibrating "Agla" (for Earth as a passive element). *

Make the Invoking Pentagram of Earth:

The Earth element is invoked by the pentagram that starts with the line from Spirit to Earth, and banished when starting in the opposite direction with Earth back to Spirit. Vibrate the Angelic Tablet name "Emor Dial Hectega" in making the pentagram. *

Trace the sigil of Taurus in its centre, referring to the kerubic sign, while vibrating the godname "Adonai" (for Element of Earth). Feel the energy being loaded into the pentagram. *

Finish with the sign of the Elemental grade of Zelator (1=10): Raise the right arm straight up in a fortyfive degree angle from the body, hand helt flat with fingers pointing towards the ceiling. *

C Close the circle. Then, with the hand still outstretched, return to the East, tracing the blue flame from North to East. Stab you fingers or dagger into the center of the first pentagram. Visualize that you are surrounded by the four flaming pentagrams connected by a line of blue fire. *

D Invoke the Archangels like in the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram) *

1 Facing East, extend your arms in the form of a cross. Now visualise yourself standing within a powerful pentagram, and proclaim: *

2 'Before me, RAPHAEL (pronounced 'Rah-fah-yell', translated as 'Healing of God') - visualize Raphael, the Archangel of Air, to the East towering above you robed in yellow which, as it rustles in the refreshing breeeze blowing from the rear of the figure, flashes with purple overtones). *

3 'Behind me, GABRIEL ('Gah-bree-ell', 'Might of God') - visualize Gabriel, the Archangel of Water, to the West, standing in a giant column of water and holding aloft a Cup from which flows water. His robe is of shimmering blue with overtones of orange). *

4 'On my right hand, MICHAEL ('Mee-khah-ell', 'Likeness of God') - visualize Michael, the Archangel of Fire, to the South, clothed in robes of red, flashing with a greenish fire, holding aloft a flaming sword). *

5 'On my left hand, AURIEL ('aw-ree-ell', 'Light of God') - visualize Auriel, Archangel of Earth, to the North, standing in front of a vast column of mixed browns and greens, on a pentacle, clad in the colours of the seasons, citrine, olive, russet and black. *

6 'For about me flames the Pentagrams, and in the column stands the six-rayed star' (imagine a shining hexagram - a Star of David - above your head and crowning the circle of the Pentagrams, feel energy radiating down from the Star through the column of your whole body). *

D Repeat The Qabalistic Cross. *

E Now enough energy is invoked for you to ask for any kind of magical assistance, help, healing or the like. *

F Close the ritual by performing the Supreme ritual in its Banishing version, that is, draw each Spirit and Element pentagram in the opposite direction, beginning with the same path that were used for the invocation, thereby reversing the currents. *

 

variations

If you want to work with only one element, use only the proper Equilibrating element of Spirit and the Element's own invoking Pentagram. In general it is the safer to work with all four elements as they balance each other. *

If you want to invoke forces of the Zodiac, use the pentagram of the Element to which the Sign refers. Trace the sigil of the specific Sign in the centre of the pentagram (Note: not neccesarily the kerubic sign of the element). Turn towards the actual spatial position of the Sign at the particular time of the ritual. *
