Enochian-language version of an Extended Middle Pillar Ritual

The original Middle Pillar Ritual (MPR) remains one of my favorite rituals to come out of the membership of the Golden Dawn. It is a means to align oneself on the Pillar of Mildness, which rests between the Pillar of Mercy and the Pillar of Severity, allowing for balanced ascension of the Tree of Life, the most common model of the Kabbalah. This middle pillar consists of four sephiroth (spheres of consciousness; singular “sephirah”). These are Malkuth (Kingdom, the sphere of physical world), Yesod (Foundation, the sphere of form, or connection between objects), Tiphareth (Beauty, the sphere from which the True Will toward the mundane world resides), and Kether (Crown, the highest sphere of consciousness, a place of Union with the Divine). The middle pillar also contains the one pseudo-sephirah, Da’ath (knowledge), which is placed between Tiphareth and Kether.

My version extends of the MPR (to the extent that I am familiar with the correspondences) into the four worlds: Kether, Da’ath, Tiphareth, Yesod, & Malkuth in Atziluth (Emanation), Briah (Creation), Yetzirah (Formation), and Assiah (Action). The Assiah section is an elaborated version of Regardie’s original version, with additional correspondences of that world added. For this translation I of course am relying on Aaron Leitch’s The Angelical Language, Vol. II, and also Eshelman’s 776 1/2. Because Eshelman’s work includes it, I have also added a correspondence to Ain Sof/Ain Sof Aur of Atziluth.

Some correspondences in my own version of this are not available in this version because they refer to god names outside of Enochian, but I am adding placeholders [in brackets].

Atziluth (Emanations)

Ain Sof/Ain Sof Aur: Vibrate the following three times: ZDLZL, ZZZDZ, ZLDLDZ [LASHTAL]. (You have pronunciation options here: Zohd-Dee-EL-Zohd-El, Zohd-Zohd-Zohd-Dee-Zohd, Zohd-El-Dee-El-Dee-Zohd (early modern English); or, Ceph-Gal-Ur-Ceph-Ur, Ceph-Ceph-Ceph-Gal-Ceph, or Ceph-Ur-Gal-Ur-Gal-Ceph; these are “higher octave” versions of the names and phrases in Kether, following the Agrippa method of discovering higher angel names, but applied to Enochian as described by Leitch).

Kether: Vibrate the following three times: JAIDA, PRONOA, TONIEL (“J. I. Dah,” “Pro-Noah,” “Tony L.”). {Highest God, “Divine Love,” “All is one.”}

Da’ath: [no correspondence available to my knowledge]

Tiphareth: [no Enochian correspondence available to my knowledge; the barbarous name is “Onophis.”]

Yesod: [no correspondence available to my knowledge]

Malkuth: [no correspondence available to my knowledge]

Briah (Creation):

Kether: Vibrate the following God names three times: “OL TRIAN” {“I shall be”}, eL. (“ohl-tree-ahn,” “L.”). The Hebrew angel name is Yehuel (or Jehoel), meaning “like unto God” (YHV); the translation of the name into Enochian is “AZIA(e)L” (ay-zigh-ay-el), but I haven’t “pressure-tested” this name yet, so you may add Yehuel to the god names.

Da’ath: Vibrate three times: eL, CARUBIAL (“L.,” “kay-roo-bee-ayl”); this Enochian angel name is equivalent to Kerubiel and appeared to me during Chokmah initiation.

Tiphareth: Vibrate three times: GAHOACHMA (Jay-Hohk-Mah). [The Hebrew angel names are Chasmel & Metatron.]

Yesod: L-ENAY (“L.N.A.”). [Hebrew angel name here is once again Yehuel.]

Malkuth: L-IAIDON, L-ENAY (“eL-jay-eye-don”, “L.N.A.”). [The Hebrew angel name is Michael.]

Yetzirah (Formation): The rotation of the name YHVH in Yetzirah does not make sense to apply to Enochian, so simply vibrate: GAHOACHMA.

Assiah (Action).

Kether: ENAY, OL TRIAN. The archangel name here is Metatron.

Da’ath: GAHOACHMA IAD. Kraig substitutes the angel-governor names of the Aethyr of ZAX: LEXARPH, COMANAN, TABITOM.

Tiphareth: GAHOACHMA, L-IADNAH (jay-hohk-mah, ell-yad-nah). The archangel name here is Raphael.

Yesod: IAIDON L-IOIAD (jay-eye-don ell–joh-jad). The angel name is Gabriel.

Malkuth: L IAIDON, ENAY CAOSGO (el Jay-Jod, “N.A.,” Kay-Os-Goh”). The archangel name is Sandalphon.
