Lesser and Greater Rituals of the Hexagram

#1 Postby Tau Malachi » Fri Jul 20, 2007 2:42 pm

Lesser Ritual of the Hexagram: Rite of Mystical Union

This is a sacred ritual in our wonderworking art for the celebration of the Wedding Feast, the Holy Eucharist, and it is a rite celebrating the union of heaven and earth, our Heavenly Father and Earthly Mother; it is also a sacred ritual that is used to seek insight into the Divine Will or for prophetic inspiration.

Just as the Elemental Forces are attributed to the points of the Sacred Pentagram the Celestial or Planetary Forces are attributed to the points of the Sacred Hexagram in the very way they appear on the Tree of Life: Shemesh, the Sun, in the center; Shabbatai, Saturn to the top point, Levanah, the Moon, to the bottom point; then Tzedek, Jupiter to the top right, Nogah, Venus, to the bottom right; then Madim, Mars to the upper left and Kokab, Mercury, to the bottom right.

In the same way as with the Sacred Pentagram, from the point of attribute we trace the Sacred Hexagram sunwise to invoke and counter-sunwise to banish.

The Sacred Ritual

1. Take up the wand and cup and perform the Kabbalistic Cross, and assume the Image of the Partzuf in your Body of Light, taking the attitude of a holy priest-king or priestess-queen on your wedding day and coronation.
2. In the East trace a Shabbatai Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then envision a Divine Presence of brilliant diamond-like light sparkling with rainbow hues and intone IO Adonai.
3. In the West trace a Levanah Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then envision the Holy Bride in Glory Body and intone Kallah Messiah.
4. In the South trace a Shabbatai Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then envision the Risen Messiah, Yeshua Messiah in Glory Body and intone IAO.
5. In the North trace a Levanah Hexagram while vibrating Ararita; then envision the Holy Mother in Glory Body and intone OAI.
6. Envision that a great Cross of Light is formed in the earth by this movement and standing in the center trace a circle in the air above your head while intoning Ruach Ha-Kodesh, envisioning the Divine Presence and Power of the Great Luminous Assembly of tzaddikim and maggidim above pouring our their blessings as streams of Divine Light upon you.
7. Drawing down that Divine Light and Spirit touch between your navel and groin and intone Ruach Ha-Messiah; then touch your right shoulder and intone Ruach Ha-Elijah; then touch your left shoulder and intone Ruach Ha-Enoch.
8. Uplifting the cup and wand before you call upon Gavriel, intoning the name of the archangel three times with great joy in remembrance of the New Covenant.
9. Bring the wand and grail into symbolic union, as Groom and Bride, and as you do intone IAO-OAI, and envision all blessings and grace of the Supernal Shekinah of the Supreme pouring into the holy cup as brilliant Divine Light – envision the Dove of Supernal Chrism enter the Holy Grail.
10. If a full Holy Eucharist is being performed lay hands on the bread and consecrate it, envisioning Divine Light pervading it, then say, “I Am the Human One of Light, this is my Body and this is my Blood, my Body is Light, my Blood is Fire”; so Adonai Yeshua said, “This is my Body broken for you, and this is my Blood poured out for you – do this in remembrance of me, the Divine I Am.” Having proclaimed this, invite all your relations, all beings, to partake of the Holy Feast with you, and as you partake, eat and drink on behalf of all, and pray all are uplifted in the Mystical Body of the Risen Messiah.
11. Abide, looking and seeing in the World of the Holy Spirit, at-one with the Messiah in union with El Elyon.
12. In closing, give praise and thanks to the Divine as you are inspired, and pray that the light-power generated by this sacred rite go out to all your relations, and seal the movement with the Kabbalistic Cross – this completes the sacred ritual.

Although this is a sacred ritual taught to novices there are many secret mysteries contained in it and many oral transmissions of teachings associated with it; when all of the Four Base Rituals are performed together and the Palace of Lights is generated – this holy rite seals the movement, completing it, just as the Lesser Banishing Ritual initiates it.

*Generally speaking, nothing more than what is recorded here is openly spoken of this sacred ritual – the remainder is spoken in private to close friends, and only by the mekubal in the presence of two alone, and no more.

May all be taken up in the Divine Rapture; amen

Blessing & shalom!

The Greater Ritual of the Hexagram

#2 Postby Tau Malachi » Fri Jul 20, 2007 4:53 pm

The Greater Ritual of the Hexagram: Invoking Celestial Powers

In the same way that the Greater Ritual of the Pentagram invokes the Elemental Forces, the Greater Ritual of the Hexagram invokes the Celestial Forces – if and when we create a Sacred Hexagram on the earth with the intention of invoking the Celestial Powers and Divine Powers of the Heavens, we can join the Greater Ritual of the Hexagram to it as a way to call upon the Celestial Powers. When a Sacred Hexagram is created, being trace on the earth, when done in conjunction with this sacred ritual it is oriented East-West. However, this ritual can be performed on its own apart from the actual creation of a Sacred Hexagram, and as with all of the Base Rituals it can be performed indoors or outdoors – in any number of environments.

(Along with invoking the Celestial Powers this sacred ritual can be used to draw down shefa and ruhaniyot of the Holy Sefirot – you just need to include the archangels and orders of angels in your invocations of the hexagrams.)

The Sacred Ritual

1. Perform the Kabbalistic Cross and envision your Body of Light arising as our Lord or our Lady glorified, and take the attitude of the priest-king or priestess-queen.
2. Now envision a Great Hexagram of Solar Light hovering in the air above, as though an upper plane, oriented East-West, the Shabbatai point to the East and Levanah point to the West – if a Sacred Hexagram has been traced on the ground this Light Hexagram is exactly above it, parallel to it as though forming an upper plane in the sky above.
3. Charge this Great Hexagram with the Shema: Shema Israel, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Achad – “Hear O Israel, the Lord is your God, the Lord is One.” (This is intoned with your hands above your head and your gaze somewhat upward.)
4. Take up the wand and cup, or else go with the holy staff, and in the East trace a Shabbatai Hexagram in the space before you while intoning Ararita; then intone Yahweh Elohim, and tracing the sign of Shabbatai within the hexagram intone Ruach Ha-Shabbatai.
5. Following the course of that triangle of the Great Hexagram, of which the Shabbatai point is the apex, go sunwise to the Nogah point and there trace a Nogah Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then intone Yahweh Tzavaot, and while tracing the sign of Nogah in the center of the hexagram intone Ruach Ha-Nogah.
6. Then, in the same way, go to the Kokab point of the Great Hexagram and trace a Kokab Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then intone Elohim Tzavaot, and while tracing the sign of Kokab intone Ruach Ha-Kokab.
7. Now, return to the East, to the Shabbatai point of the Great Hexagram, then travel to the West, to the Levanah point, and there trace a Levanah Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then intone Shaddai El Hai, and while tracing the sign of Levanah in the Hexagram before you intone Ruach Ha-Levanah.
8. Following the course of the of that triangle, of which the Levanah point is the apex, go sunwise to the Madim point, and trace a Madim Hexagram there while intoning Ararita; then intone Elohim Givor, and while tracing the sign of Madim in the Hexagram intone Ruach Ha-Madim.
9. Then, in the same way, go to the Tzedek point of the Great Hexagram and trace a Tzedek Hexagram while intoning Ararita; then, intone El and trace the sign of Tzedek in the Hexagram while intoning Ruach Ha-Tzedek.
10. Return to the Levanah point of the Great Hexagram, completing the circuit of that triangle of the Hexagram; then go to the East, now walk the Shabbatai triangle and then the Levanah triangle with the chant of Ararita all the while – tracing the Great Solar Hexagram above with wand in hand upraise, or else the holy staff upraised; when you have done this, go to the center and intone Adonai Yeshua Messiah, and above your head, in the center of the Great Hexagram of Light above, trace the sign of Shemesh and intone Ruach Ha-Shemesh, Ruach Ha-Messiah.
11. Invoke the influx of the Divine Light, and invite and welcome the Holy Shekinah of Messiah as you are inspired; and pray for all beings in the Entirety, that they might receive all blessings and grace from El Elyon, the Supreme, and receive the Light of the Messiah, liberating them from bondage – if no other rite is joined to this and a Holy Eucharist is to be performed, consecrate the bread and wine and celebrate it at this time.
12. If this rite was performed with mystical intention, as a communion in the Divine Presence and Power, abide in holy prayer and meditation; if it was performed for the sake of wonderworking with theurgic intention, take up that spiritual work. (If a wonderworking movement is performed, then you will want to perform a banishing, closing the Celestial Gates and releasing the spiritual forces bound by the working.)
13. The rite is closed with the proclamation: “It is accomplished; as it is spoken, so is it done – amen.” Then it is sealed with prayers for the light-power to go out to all beings and with the Kabbalistic Cross – this completes the sacred ritual.

*In much the same way as the Greater Ritual of the Pentagram, this ritual can be performed in invocating or banishing form; also like the Greater Ritual of the Pentagram if only one Celestial Forces is to be worked with, rather than performing the entire ritual, that single invocation of the corresponding Celestial Force can be woven into a sacred ceremony for that purpose.

With this written out, all four of the Base Rituals are now provided in this forum of the Order of St. Uriel.

May the dominion of the demiurge and archons come to an end, and may all living spirits and souls be uplifted into the Pleroma of Light; amen.


Blessings & shalom!

Shalom!

I just wanted to inquire about the Lesser Ritual of the Hexagram, above it is written that this is
a sacred ritual in our wonderworking art for the celebration of the Wedding Feast.

I have seen that sometimes things change through the years in tradition and I was just wondering if this ritual is still actively used in the Wedding Feast?

Blessings,
Star

Shalom,

Thank you for inquiring sister. No, in fact, most of us do not use the lesser ritual of the hexagram any longer but prefer to create various ceremonies for the Wedding Feast, all as seems good according to our intention in worship and all as inspired by the Spirit. Even the greater rituals of the pentagram and hexagram are not used very often in the set form that have been taught previously, but they are viewed as simply showing a way to open elemental and celestial gates, and a way to invoke their spiritual powers in ceremony. The only ritual of the four base rituals that continues to be universally used as taught is the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram.

That, and the revealed invocation of sacred circle are two rituals that are practiced just as taught, and both are used quite often by initiates.

Blessings!
