I was honored to be a guest on Praxis behind the Obscure with Ryan. We had an in-depth discussion about angelic magic, specifically on getting started with Enochian, working with the Holy Guardian Angel, and crossing the Abyss. I hope you can check it out. Enjoy!
It’s pretty easy to look at Enochian as a religion, and honestly, I am wondering whether it’s time to call it that. Jason Louv certainly concludes that this was the angels’ goal: a one-world religion. It fuses communicating and working with angels (angels themselves working on behalf of God), magick (an ability to manipulate reality, in this case via Divine power), and devotion to the Divine. Via the Aethyrs, ultimately (i.e., in LIL), these all fuse with union with the Divine, forever changing the consciousness of the practitioner.
It is the latter of these–a procedure that provides union (i.e., yoga) with the Divine (and therefore the universe)–that gives Enochian its power. This power is frightening and heretical to most Western Christian denominations (I cannot speak to Eastern Orthodox Churches). After all, Jesus has made humanity right with God, provided we recognize him as “the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father except by/through” Him (John 14:6). Note that Jesus uses the present tense–not “no one will ever come to the Father,” but “no one comes to the Father.” Am I stretching too much here, inferring too much about what Jesus says about the relationship with God and when? Read on: interestingly, Jesus goes on to say that He is in the Father and vice versa, that he will provide another advocate (i.e., one like Jesus, whom Jesus calls “the Spirit of Truth,” thought in theological terms by most to mean the Holy Spirit), who will be in the disciples. This suggests, frankly, that the Father continues to be in the disciples, giving them union with God. He then continues to say “I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” An awful lot of sharing of this Divinity, wouldn’t you say? It’s almost as if union with the Divine is the whole point here.
The frightening heresy to denominations in these verses is that God is in the heart of a believer, yet we are still human. We should not aspire to be Divine, the thinking goes, but some unclear version of similarity with the Divine. To that I say–that’s not how it works, at least in Enochian. In Enochian, you learn the heavenly and, ultimately, Divine nature we already are, after using each Aethyr to slowly peel back ego-based delusion. It is this delusion of the ego that feeds the dependency upon the hierarchy of authority.
How does Enochian fit into the grand scheme of other religions? It’s a different form of esoteric Christianity from Gnosticism in that there isn’t some grand conspiracy of cosmic beings who are keeping us deluded, but rather, our own thinking and ego- and mind-identification. It certainly has a deity, but this deity is systemic to the universe (as shown through its identification with mathematics; this suggest pantheism or panentheism), and we are a part of the universe. It may be trite to say that everything is divine, but the point of Enochian is to learn exactly what that means. It is a “suchness.” It is Tathata. Understanding (Binah) this means learning to let go of other kinds of thinking and being, and instead become what one truly is: divine, in all the glory of divinity. Enochian cosmology has excellent, but probably not always perfect, complementarity with Buddhism and other Eastern traditions. Regardless, I am of the view that Enochian, and specifically the Enochian language in general prayers and in modifications made to the 19th Enochian Call to the Aethyrs, can be used especially well to produce the esoteric attainments or states of these and likely other religions.
If Enochian is a religion, it’s highly personal. It comes from personal revelation and interaction with the angelic and the Divine. For Westerners especially, it’s about knowing your place in the cosmic order (and probably getting therapy). One becomes better aligned with the world and every realm one interacts with, yet this reflects the changes to perspective and therefore one’s reactions, all due to Divine revelation. In this sense, it’s not dogmatic, but it’s also not a mere spiritual practice. It probably belongs as a course in Universalist religions of all stripes. Obviously, this would mean that it is fundamentally compatible with most other religions.
Let me know your thoughts!
A talisman, strictly speaking, a visual seal (sigil) of magical intent that is energetically charged to bring wanted things toward you; it has typically been contrasted with amulets which repel unwanted things. In Western traditions nowadays, this line is a little blurry, so this post refers to both, but only those related to astrological talismans. Any time is possible to do magick. Elemental magick is always available, no matter the circumstances. Astrological magick is also always available, and can be tweaked via planetary banishing and invoking, but it’s a bit more like playing a game of cards, in which you can discard some cards and draw others.
I start my planetary talisman process based on the desired astrological energy. To do this, you need to have familiarity with basic astrology and what makes a planet’s energy strong as well as harmonious with other planets. Once the dominant planetary energy is selected, I pick the time and the base metal. Paper is fine but not as durable energywise as metal. Classically each astrological planet has its own metal; of the seven planets, only four have metals that are realistic to use nowadays: Saturn’s and Mercury’s metals (lead & mercury, respectively) are toxic, and the sun’s metal, gold, is toxic to your bank account! I substitute silver, the moon’s metal, for these three planets, because the moon is “closest” to the earth in the medieval tradition.
Once I have the metal picked, I begin the design; there’s not much imagination on my part in designing talismans. If a planetary talisman, I begin by looking up the magic square for that planet. This will be the center of the overall design, and also tells me the number of elements to incorporate into the talisman, including the numbers of the square itself (but not the grid). I usually go with the sum of a given row or column.
Once I have the number of elements, I incorporate the names of the selected deities and/or archangels associated with the planet & its sephira. In the Hermetic tradition, these can be found by looking them up ina correspondence resource such as 777, 776_1/2, or Thelemapedia (in the case of a Mars talisman, for example, I use row 27, and perhaps also row 5 for the sephira it rules, Geburah); these are all based on the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (which itself is largely based on Agrippa: see below); I have yet to explore other similar orders’ materials such as Aurum Solis but this is forthcoming, I’m sure. I then start counting the letters in the deity names and try to use some combination of them that adds up the the planetary square total (in the case of the Mars talisman, 65). Also, I do one final check for the planetary seal from Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Book 1, Chapter 33. My standard approach is to have the names parallel to each of the four sides of the square (placed according to the Four Worlds associations in the Kabbalah and/or stacked as necessary according to the hierarchy in which they fit; the planetary seal I break into four parts which go at the corners, in a rounded formation of long enough).
Once the design is complete, it comes to a method of charging the talisman. Here you’re asking the deity or angel to do you a solid and please charge your talisman. Angels work in the capacity of their deity, so appeal to that connection, and deities like it when you approach via the things they are connected to (such as the incenses or plants in a correspondence book like 777–the more the better, but there is diminishing returns, so don’t dip into your savings! If money is an issue, cultivate sincerity and it will make up for it). Use a picture of the appropriate animal, a small clipping of the appropriate plant, light the appropriate incense, etc. Next, perform the planetary invoking ritual (I use the Greater Invoking Ritual of the Hexagram) to call forth the energy associated with your astrological election. Then I usually will either do an invocation for the deity to temporarily inhabit my body (choose your deity wisely!) and provide a charge to the object, or a call to the angel by appealing to its deity. I will usually modify Liber Israfel for the former; for the latter, it depends on the system. Enochian has specific methods to call upon its angels; similarly, the Shem-Hamphorasch has its own 72 angels and various authors have books on contacting them. Once those methods are done you make your request to the angel(s) that you have called to charge the talisman for you.
One alternative to the entity method is energy work, such as Chi or Reiki (though the latter still accesses divine entities). Reiki is probably better since it explicitly calls on the energy of the heavens (which, you know, where the stars and planets are), but Chi could probably also be used, if you set a strong intention to only use the more terrestrial energy that fully reflects the celestial.
Here we come to a point not to be overlooked: timing is essential. Unlike other astrologers, my view of an event is to look at the definitive “birthing” portion. Just as astrologers typically use a birth time and not a conception time, events or even ideas have to be birthed and not just stirred or conceived. A seed doesn’t count as a new plant just because it’s been planted, or watered, or the like. The seed emerge from its shell and touch the air and light as well as put down its first root. I dwell on this point because, well, you have to time your actions to culminate as closely to the time you’ve elected.
That’s it: you now have a charged talisman!
Chriiiistmas, Chriiiistmas, tiiiime of year! Time for Talismans, and cheer!
Yes, the next talisman is for Christmas Eve of 2020. Saturn and Jupiter will still be in their conjunction in Aquarius, and the first fixed star they interact with in this sign is Albireo! My attention was brought to this particular fixed star by Kelly Surtees in either the Astrology Podcast or her presentation at the Astrology University. If I have the reference to her reference wrong, be a good referee and feel free to refer me to the correct reference to her reference.
Regardless, Albireo looks like a fairly good fixed star to have Saturn and Jupiter work with (when you see Obama, George Clooney, Picasso, Elizabeth Taylor, Jim Carrey, and Jeff Bridges spanning both of these planets, you think, “There’s probably some sweet major modification energy here!). This makes it an uneasy neighbor to Altair, its next-door neighbor: because of this, the caution that I advise on this talisman is to not only use this election (i.e., not a later one), but also to make sure to include the symbolism of the swan’s beak in your talisman’s design.
This talismanic election, as you can see, has the part of fortune conjunct my own north node. Always check the astrology against your own chart–and against the eclipses!–to ensure you’re creating something that not only works to lock in a desirable “constellation” (heh, heh) of energy, but also one that works well with your own chart.
I have put Saturn in the 10th house; the chart ruler, Venus, is in Sagittarius, which looks to Jupiter; Jupiter, the greater benefic, is no longer in its fall in Capricorn, but still is modified in its expression by the greater malefic of Saturn. In fact, Saturn is the final dispositor of everything, with the exception of (the lesser malefic of) Mars which is still strong its domicile, but, as mentioned in my previous post, you can banish any planet, including Mars, via the Greater Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram. I haven’t decided yet whether to do so for this ritual, because it’s in my 9th house, where my natal Mars resides, but it’s far closer to my natal MC. Note, too, the squaring energy of Uranus and the moon! Nonetheless, the former is in a 5+ degree orb, and the moon is separating, and both are trine the sun, which is the sect light, and Mercury. Nonetheless, you may consider doing a general banishing via the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram, then invoking Saturn and Jupiter for the purposes of this talisman (leaving those two planets’ energies as predominant).
For your humble “talismaker,” this conjunction lands in my 7th house. It’s an angular house, so although not quite as strong as the 1st or 10th, it’s by no means the weakest! I’m hoping to bring out the best in my interactions with others and vice versa with the energy of this fixed star.
As with any talisman, you can add the Agrippa symbols for Saturn and Jupiter:
You can also add angel names via the methods suggested by Agrippa or similarly derived versions by Aaron Leitch in his great book, The Angelical Language, Vol. I (Vol II is also excellent), or by the more recent The Angels of Fortune, by Rose Manning, who has worked through the appropriate angels by both research and experimentation (always important to include this as part of your magickal practice!). You can also use the associated deity names for the correspondences for Saturn, Jupiter, and Aquarius. For this in particular for Western astrologer/Western magicians, I recommend referencing Eshelman’s 776_1/2 and not 777, which did not have the references for Aquarius and Aries fully worked out. Though 776_1/2 still seems to have some problems with other panthea (I really believe Ganesh remains mis-assigned, for example), it’s a vast improvement and expansion on the already groundbreaking work done by Crowley–and likely his Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn colleagues–in 777.
“Who am I? Why am I here?”
Beyond a political in-joke about the bottom of the third-highest-popular-vote presidential ticket of any third-party in U.S. politics, this question is one that cuts to the core of an individual’s search for meaning. The intensity of this question usually starts getting asked around adolescence and there are large sub-fields in psychology devoted to it. However, it should not be taken lightly, nor thought of as an “adolescent” (i.e., immature) question, because it cuts to the core of how we spend our limited lifespan, doesn’t it?
So as one starts their journey into adulthood, one of the first things to do is to get started on where one is at the moment, then, if one has the luxury, move on to other questions as they become pertinent. Usually this means stabilizing the circumstances (basic needs) and becoming self-sustaining (either working or on the path to working via education). Along with this requires growth, but–all too easily–it is here that what I would deem major mistakes begin to be made.
The mistakes that can be made are simple: starting work or education at something that one doesn’t like or has other misgivings about: selling dangerous products, not making the world better as a result of one’s work, or simply not feeling one’s job or field in one’s heart. This is not always easy: some professions or fields are difficult to discover, or haven’t been invented yet (there were no YouTube stars who make all their money off of videos when I had my high school career counseling!). Another possibility is that one wants to do with their life may have very little to do with one’s career. The best that one can do is approximate what they want to do and learn what it is they really want to do via trial and error. Of course, this presumes a completely “balanced” and “head on their shoulders” personality!
The magical traditions of the West (and those of the East as well, but these are not the focus of this post) focus on the possible steps of development and usually lay them out in a sequential order. This is slightly problematic, because people often have some degree of initiation later stages, but overall the system works well. One learns how to integrate the tools that they need in order to progress, and these are metaphorically labeled as elements: earth (both physical and the metaphorical structure of security and routine), water (physical and the metaphorical emotions that a person carries, which can leak out or be put to positive use), air (physical as well as the tendency of the mind to blow from place to place like the wind), and fire (the dangerous passion that can nonetheless be used to accomplish will). Those familiar with the Golden Dawn can see these elements in the lowest Kabbalistic sephira, Malkuth.
Once these are established and recognized, it becomes important to see how important it is to balance these; doing so can provide the foundation (Yesod) for further work, as one discovers the tendency of the mind to discover splendor (Hod) of possibilities of form, and finally to victory, Netzach, of using one’s energy to pick a general possibility to work towards…but which one?
This is where the middlemost sephira, Tiphareth (Beauty), comes in. Anyone who has had to leave a career path that they discovered wasn’t for them (or leave the idea that a “career path” is the focus of what they should be doing) can understand at least one of the following thoughts (I’ll add the associated sephiroth and the Kabbalistic ruler for reference): I need to stay at this job I dislike just to scrounge together rent (Malkuth/elements). I’m kind of stable but I don’t know how to get my life ready for change (Yesod/Moon). I don’t know all of life’s possibilities or how they even work or fit together (Hod/Mercury). I don’t know how to pick a possibility, and how to make it work for me (Netzach/Venus). Ideally, you would know exactly what you would want to focus on and, like Jimi Hendrix at the age of five after seeing a cartoon character playing a guitar, you would know exactly what you were supposed to do.
For most of us, this sense is not so easy. There are techniques to answer this question, and of these, those proposed by a teacher of mine, Jason Louv, are excellent (and during a pandemic, when everything is being questioned, is as good a time as any to ask if one is doing the right thing with one’s life). Another technique is to seek heavenly guidance, that offered by the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel (K&C HGA, for short). This highly personal entity is unique to each individual (and is not to be confused with the Natal Guardian Angel/good daimon), and is the beginning of initiation into Tiphareth, wherein resides the True Will, that which the individual feels compelled to do with their life. Aleister Crowley considered K&C HGA the essential work of a magician, and for good reason, as it was to lead the individual–among other things–to understand and carry out their True Will.
There are multiple techniques for obtaining this (and I have an ongoing study trying to suss out how people obtain K&C HGA–contact me if you ware interested); some, I am sure, have come to it completely spontaneously, others after massive trauma. I’m not one to recommend seeking out trauma, but if one finds oneself in the midst of it (such as, say, a global pandemic), I believe that this can actually be a catalyst for an otherwise longer process.
When I requested a topic for my blog, I was asked specifically how to go about obtaining the K&C, including modifications to existing rituals necessary for the modern age. For this, there are no easy answers, but I would start with the essays in the Holy Guardian Angel anthology by Nephilim Press, especially Scott Stenwick’s, which provides techniques to get you started straight away. Stenwick also provides additional information on HGA initiation on his website.
After this preliminary, there are two famous classic techniques for K&C HGA: Abramelin and Liber Samekh. The former has several requirements, including Abramelin oil and incense, but also a separate room, restrictions on sex, as well as thrice daily prayers. Being written from an esoteric Jewish tradition, there is also the matter of aligning to the Jewish calendar, specifically Passover. My recommendations on this for the modern practitioner, whether Jewish or not (and I am not) are as follows: try to balance the elements externally (Abramelin oil, interestingly, balances both yin and yang ingredients) via the Abramelin oil and incense (if it’s in your budget) or via the gratis LBRP and/or LIRP; focus on self-isolation (did I mention we’re in a pandemic?) to maintain this elemental balance (i.e., others’ drama doesn’t throw your delicate elemental balance off); and devotional prayers (three times a day at a minimum) and the self-abnegation quality of the technique. Going to a closet or if need be even a bathroom for a short time to make a sincere prayer is sufficient (Scarlet Magdalene reports going to her car over her lunch hour, a technique I copied). Wash your hands (did I mention we’re in a pandemic?) and continually reflect on the outward cleansing and isolation from human affairs as a means to more clearly attune yourself to the purity of the Divine and the messenger thereof. As I have hinted, this pandemic is actually something of an ideal time to begin K&C HGA work!
As far as Liber Samekh (adapted by Crowley from an exorcism ritual known as “The Bornless Ritual” from the Greek Magical Papyri), so in another manner, this also isolates you from spirits–and eventually the delusions surrounding yourself that have accumulated. I would also recommend no less than three times a day for this technique as well.
Both the Abramelin ritual and the Liber Samekh ritual can be done silently (the latter requiring more memorization and visualization of one’s astral body completing the techniques–but it can be done). It is possible, for people with a great deal of cleverness and insight into the technical aspects of magic, to create their own ritual for the K&C HGA (the key features of this from a technical perspective seem to be elemental balance, crowding out things that throw off that balance, and a powerful technique to petition–or take upon oneself–the celestial). Regardless, from a practical perspective, the essential is to pick a technique and make sure that the people in your life expect to see less of you for many months. This is a unique task that few in the West undertake, and taking it on deserves respect, a great deal of reflection, and no small amount of testing of the spiritual breakthroughs you may think you achieve along the way (false insights are the worst!).
Update: I have recently extended this into a thread on Twitter, but here is an appellation: a sincere nightly (or more often) prayer that God will please send your Holy Guardian Angel to you in full Knowledge & Conversation, in addition to right living. For more, see Leitch.
What are the advantages of K&C HGA, as opposed to just learning your True Will via an audit technique (or other means)? The biggest advantage is that your HGA is also an interface with all other entities (including people) and can help you navigate an otherwise confusing landscape. The HGA is your biggest ally and works to evolve you after K&C is reached (to the extent that you actually engage with this invaluable resource). Regardless of what you encounter, your HGA will do its best to lead you down an optimal path and has heavenly authority to protect and guide you along it. The only downside to this is that the HGA is not human, and so keep your rationality, practicality, and common sense handy! Furthermore, the HGA can accompany you only so far on the path–crossing “the Abyss” has its own, ah, “pitfalls” that the HGA must temporarily step aside for the aspirant to face.
Is K&C HGA necessary? To end on the positive note requested by the other suggestion for a blog entry: it is a gorgeous first step toward calling forth one’s own divinity, one that I never regret having taken. Yet others have not needed this step in order to reach very high states of spiritual development. So, if it seems right for you, then explore it.
I wish you good luck either way.
Having worked with different systems of angelic magick (including the Shem Hamphorasch and, of course, Enochian), part of me has wondered how the different systems relate to one another. Having requested this of God for the last few weeks, I received a vision of a spiral emanating from a center point, and am receiving the following transmission:
“All things proceed from the Center that is God, the solar God, the God balanced across All. Behold the angels who proceed, radiating from this Center, first from this pure-light Center, then turning at the four quarters, until, having completed these turns, they complete the wheel.
“The angels of the Shem Hamphorasch, they proceed from the Holy use of this same turning of the Holy Logos.
“The angels of the angelic language [Enochian], also proceeding from this spiral, but from a many-dimensional spiral emanating from this Center.
“Every angelic system can be found to correspond with this emanation from the Center, and followed back thereto.”
Those familiar with the Enochian system are likely aware of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth (SDA), or “Seal of God’s Truth,” a disc made of beeswax which is carved by the magician. This gorgeous seal has on its top an outer ring segmented into 40 parts, which circumscribes a heptagon of 49 spaces (7 for each side), which touches an inner heptagram at the points, within which are two more heptagons, the inner of which touches a pentagram. On the bottom, the Notarikon AGLA (Atah Gibor Le-olam Adonai,” or “Thou art powerful forever, Lord”) is written in a clockwise formation, within which several interlocking crosses are arranged.
There are hundreds of letters and numbers to be written on the spaces in the front in order to complete this seal. This can be done, but it takes patience on the 9″ version to do so when working with the beeswax: it an immense amount of when working on the four 4″ versions! My recommendation is to do so on the miniature (4″) SDAs soon after making the geometric template (and not waiting for a year, as I did!). Another caution is that it’s much easier to make a mistake with these, so be patient and careful. Double-check each place before lettering it. However, the angelic “high” that comes from making these smaller pieces of the temple furniture is the same as for the SDA, so it’s worth it from that perspective alone.
I’ll be reporting back after having done the lettering on all 4 of these. Chances are I’ll re-scry LIL again (that being my main Enochian activity nowadays).
[March 2, 2019].
I am following the technique of placing attention on attention, and meta-attention, and further meta-awareness on meta-awareness. It appears that the angels are waiting for me to complete this, so I continue. Eventually I have a vision of chaos of all awareness, which in my mind seems like a whirling cloud: it’s a lot for me to handle, so I continue to gaze into the mirror. I see a bit of a pond. They instruct me to close my eyes, so I see a stream emptying into a pond. This parallels the nature field visions from prior Aethyrs. I’m reminding myself of lovingkindness; I continue on that meditation for a bit.
I’m staring into the pond, and from it arises a great angel. The angel is appearing to some extent on the HTOP. I’m trying to maintain awareness and union. It’s a large—probably 7- or 8-foot angel. He’s taking me by the hand. We’re walking upon the water. I am—he sets me upon the ground, and I am, partly on account of my meditative state, I am turning into millions and billions of particles. These are swirling, and he is swirling himself in a similar manner, and he instructs me to take on my human form (usually it’s the other way around), so I do that. As part of this, I put awareness on awareness—and I’m going to take this a step further and continue to put Briatic and Yetziratic and Atziluthic awareness on awareness, all sort of returning me to that same spot, and so on: infinite regress. This is a lot for my mind to take on (I strain at the concentration). That’s okay: I’m noticing these changes and I am doing the infinite regress thing and putting awareness on just my physical and metaphysical state.
I’m instructed to breathe, so I’m breathe. I can feel the energy throughout my physical body change, so I put my meta-awareness on all of that, and putting myself back into that state of union [with awareness], and then putting awareness on that union repeatedly, and I’m feeling this very large current of energy now, and he instructs me that this is the path to the ultimate union, and to continue on that path, and that he is very pleased with the progress. I’m very grateful for such progress, but I’m trying to avoid an ego boost, but he says it’s nothing, it
is a delusion and it [consciousness] is merely a flow, so I’m feeling it in my solar plexus right now. He is linking it—he is showing me earth—but he doesn’t want it to be too much of an earthly feeling, so he’s taking me up into heaven.
In heaven, this same feeling in my solar plexus is extending out to, in this lightning-like way, to all of these other beings in heaven. He says this is Chokmah, and to continue that meditative state, and so I do, putting awareness on awareness, meta-awareness, and awareness on union, and I’m including, because this is now the case, the object of awareness is heaven itself. I’m proceeding to put awareness on awareness on heaven itself, (I strain) and it is very powerful feeling energy right now that is opening up, and the angel says to hold off, to just take it down a step. I say, “OK.” He says this is going to continue to get more intense as I continue through [the Aethyrs]. He instructs me that this is the proper path for me to do it, this is well worth the while, and I’m—even as I’m expressing concern about the amount of energy [expended]—he says to just continue with it, to continue with this method.
So I say “Okay.” My mind flits upon the watchtowers [that I have yet to build], he says that everything is already here and coming together. I’m looking at alternative ways [to build the watchtowers], needed to build it. [Here the angel provides instructions to build the watchtower tablets that I made in my possession.] He mentions that the angels like geometry. He tells me to continue at my job; I say “OK.” He reminds me that that which I desire is grand, difficult, but not impossible. He notes my interest in political engagement; he informs me that truly this inner focus is more important right now; he reminds me that these are vicissitudes. I ask about the moral nature of my preferred candidate, whom he says is very moral; I ask if it is plausible, wise, and in the nature of the Divine Will to help this candidate win, and I am getting a very affirmative yes. Indeed, at this moment, it is not merely a matter of if but when I should move forward politically: “For behold, it has been destined.” This generates skepticism in me on account of that affirmation, just because I understand the nature of this [i.e., that spirits often flatter].
I ask if there is anything they would like to share for my magical colleagues. The angel tells me that God is waking the minds of humanity, and that people who practice magick are carrying out their co-divine role in the cosmos…that it should be turned (if it is to be done in the most appropriate manner) toward this liberation of human consciousness and setting humanity into its state of sustainability and expansion (e.g., into the cosmos). I express skepticism, but he tells me to be silent on that matter [Editorial note: there is tension between sustainability and expansion). I say, “OK,” but acknowledge my own divinity, so he bows to my own as well. There suddenly seems to be a great deal of angels who appear at this point. I remember to practice lovingkindness and once again to place attention on attention. He tells me that every time I do this consistently and with enough effort I will be reminded once again of my state of nature. So, I allow the vision to continue and I’m packed full of angels around me. I’m seeing a very solid—it’s as if goldened iron, or cast into this very strong steel—or, you throw in the mercurial quality of mercury with the denseness of lead—they [all of these kinds of metals] are all merging together, and this is how the path before me is laid out. And I’m getting a message: if it is [your] True Will to be wise, then the acts carried out with respect to that True Will are to gain and act from Wisdom, which means that they will always be ever-changing. They will be much more mercurial, and indeed I’m shown this sort of direct line of uniting different natures.
At any rate I feel there’s a very large contingent of angelic forces. There’s a feeling of mutual respect; a very large nexus, which for someone who is an introvert to become aware of, having an extremely extroverted spiritual side—seeing all of these angels and interacting with them [is ironic]. I thank the angels for their time and for their wisdom and their insight, and with that the vision ends.
While scrying the Aethyrs, I also did some work with the angels of the Shemhamphorasch. The working was powerful and effective, and the thought occurred to me that the same principle of discovering angel names within a long divine name could be also be applied to an exclamation of awe at divinity. Although I grew up Christian, the exclamation that occurred to me was cosmic: “O, A UNIVERSE OF THE MIND OF GOD!”
The astute observer will notice that this phrase is 24 letters long—matching the number of faces of a tesseract (also known as a “hypercube”: a four-dimensional version of a cube), so I then applied each of the letters to the faces, with the end of the exclamation at the “innermost” (from my 3D point of view). I then broke this out into eight cubes (each face of the tesseract applying to two cubes), and discovered eight angel names came from the cubes thereby. I also took four directions of the Tesseract and found four dimensional angel names. The results are summarized in the figure below:
One angel, AUDEOV, immediately struck me as an angel helping to deal with shame. I continued working with I Ching divinations to better understand their natures. The angel names, pronunciation, and natures are summarized below (I use the same Latin pronunciation scheme as with Enochian to pronounce the angel names):

The aspirant can use any prayer they like to initiate contact.
These are the 111 Enochian prayers to God that I initially created for a book manuscript. You are the beneficiary of my changing my mind and deciding to publish them directly online. I hope you find them helpful in your journey.
Pronunciation: The text of the prayers, in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, is a simple transliteration of Enochian into the English alphabet. Aaron Leitch has done a good job of reconstructing the Enochian original pronunciation. There is also the original Golden Dawn pronunciation (such as you may have heard on Supernatural).
I chose to use a modified Latin pronunciation because of its universality; because of the use of Latin by the angels themselves; because Dee himself could read, write, and speak it; because it appears to largely parallel the pronunciation of Enochian as documented by Leitch; and finally, because I have found that vibrating these prayers with this pronunciation to be quite potent. It also makes it very easy to read the transliterated angelic letters aloud for someone with no additional familiarity with Enochian.
At times, if Enochian word is a single letter, such as the word “L,” I have added a lowercase letter in front of it (in this example, “eL”) in to the Latin-letter transliteration to improve ease of reading and pronunciation: “eL” should be pronounced to rhyme with the English word “well” due to its history in Hebrew as a suffix for angel and prophet names.
My modified Latin pronunciation is offered below:
|A or A’||“Ah” as in father|
|E||Long “A”: as in “day,” “may”|
|I||Long “E”: “see,” “tree”|
|O||Long “O” as in “over” and “home.|
|U||Long “U” as in “tune” and “lunar”|
|C||Always a hard “C” as in “care” and “compassion”|
|G||Always a hard “G” as in “give” and “get”|
|Q or Q’||Pronounce “quah” (“kwah”).|
|Z’||If on its own, “Zohd” (rhymes with “goad”).|
|Y||Always a consonant|
(Remaining consonants: as in English). Occasionally, I have added pronunciation notes within parentheses within the prayers themselves.
Truth be told, the angels don’t seem to mind: they are benevolent and responsive to your effort. These prayers to God also seem to be effective regardless of precision of pronunciation. Several fellow magickians have tried one or more of these prayers with success. Enjoy!
A word on translation: Generally, Enochian appears to follow English syntax. Whenever possible I used the appropriate Enochian grammar, but at times the language did not have the appropriate tense to match the English case. Whenever this occurred, I substituted a word which was the incorrect case, but which otherwise was the correct word. For example, certain prayers have the pronoun “me” in the English translation, but the word “me” is not available in Enochian. However, the word “I” is readily available, so I used the “I” (for example, the phrase “give to me” turns into “give to I”). Is this completely correct grammar? Of course not. However, to quote Lon Milo DuQuette, if a mouse “hopped up on your shoe and started to talk to you in your native tongue, you’d be impressed”—and the precision of the language wouldn’t matter! As long as the language is understandable, I take as a given the generosity of the Recipient of these prayers.
0. Opening call to prayer
If desired, the supplicant may recite this variation of Shema Yisrael (Deuteronomy 6:4) combined with the phrase “God is love” (1 John 4:8). The second version of this prayer, which uses encoded Enochian words and phrases (“ZZZDZ,” etc.) in this call have been uncovered using Henry Cornelius Agrippa’s method as described in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy or Magic: Book Three – Ceremonial Magic, “Chapter xxvii. Of the calculating Art of such names by the tradition of Cabalists,” but applied to the Enochian alphabet to obtain “higher” versions of these, as described by Aaron Leitch The Whole Enochian Dictionary. Note that the phrases for “God,” “Highest God,” and “All is one” become encoded entirely with the letters Gal (“D”) Un (“L”), and Ceph (“Z”) when encoding using the column for the sun, the “king” of the seven planets in classical astrology. Each of these three letters is the fourth in their respective sets of seven letters as they were revealed to Dee and Kelley.
The reader is strongly encouraged to review the original Agrippa table and enter the Enochian alphabet in the order in the order that the letters were revealed to Dee and Kelley when working this process.
SOLPETH, MONONS-MANIN: JAIDA IAD, JAIDA I eL, TON I eL, JAIDA I PRONOA*.
SOLPETH, MONONS-MANIN: ZZZDZ (“Zohd-zohd-zoh-dee-zohd”) ZZD (“zohd-zoh-dee’), ZZZDZ Z L (zohd ell), ZDLZL (“zoh-dee-el-zohd-el”), ZZZDZ Z ZLDLDZ (“zohd-ell-dee-ell-dee-zohd”).
Hear, o heart-mind: the Highest God our God, the Highest God is One, all is one, the Highest God is love.

3. To Obtain Memory of Past Lives
Sometimes, we desire to better understand our soul, and for this we desire additional knowledge about it: use this prayer to ask for it.

5. To Heal from Traumatic Memory and PTSD
The first noble truth of the Buddha was the truth of suffering. Suffering is inherent to life, but if traumatic memories intrude, recite this prayer for the mitigation and healing of suffering.
IEH eL, IEH IAD, IEH JAIDA, IEH MAAH, IEH AHAH: SOLPETH K’ BIEN! DLUGA UNDL, RIT, NACRO, OD BLIARD K’ PAPNOR DE TIBIBP A OI MANIN OD QAA, JAIDA! IX OHIO OD CIAOFI DE OI MANIN, IUSMACH DE DOALIM: NOIB, OI FABOAN, CARMA. IX OI MANIN OM ETHARZI, IEH L, OD ZIMII POAMAL DE AQLO NAH MADRIAX.

6. Prayer to Recover from Addiction
If you are in the throes of addiction, seek help. This prayer is intended to be a supplement to the treatment process—not as an alternative. Via this prayer the aspirant requests to thrive and seek a greater glory.

7. To Obtain Greater Connection to your Fellow Human Beings
It is not uncommon to feel disconnected from others. This prayer asks to reconnect with others’ humanity, and vice versa.

8. To Obtain Knowledge and Conversation of your Holy Guardian Angel
The Knowledge and Conversation of one’s Holy Guardian Angel (“KCHGA,” for short) is an important task for those in the hermetic path; those outside of this path can also benefit from it. This prayer is intended to be appended to the traditional means of this magical achievement, such as the Abramelin operation and the Bornless Rite.
CANSE JAIDA, IEH MAAH: ZORGE OD OI MONONS DE OL!

Cause your guardian, one of those who serve: aye, one of the holy ones, and of me [i.e., “my”: “my holy guardian angel,” which is of God first, but also assigned to the individual, and therefore the individual’s personal HGA] to move, arise, and appear, merciful God! Govern this one of those angels who serve to always speak about Thy secret truth and secret wisdom unto me, and to always give these eyes, this mind, and this heart power to always look with gladness upon her or him or amidst [i.e., an angel of non-binary gender] to always speak to this me, and to always see, listen and to magnify the glory and beauty of the Holy Ghost.
Govern this guard, one of those who serve, aye, one of the holy ones to always open this eagle-heart, merciful God, and always fasten this glory to the secret truth and secret wisdom of my power, and always truss together my power to heaven-upon-earth.
9. To Create Prosperity
We all wish for prosperity! This prayer is to ask for a wholistic kind of prosperity, of body and mind, so that it can give back to the grander field from which the aspirant has arisen.
ACURTOH! NAH, IEH AHAH, MAAH, JAIDA: GRU OZIEN, LASDI, MONONS, OOANOAN, OD BIEN: NOIB, OI QAA OD OI MANIN UGEG OD KAKAKOM OD NOAN LAS CAOSGON, FAFEN OL ADGT OM ETHARZI OD ADGT DLUGA UNAL, NOIB, OD T’ MEKASMAN, K’ SAGA CORDZIZ OD SAGA MANO.

10. Overcome or escape enemies
This prayer asks to find escape from enemies via empowerment, thus either escaping or transforming their attitudes to something friendlier. Be aware that either outcome is possible and act accordingly.
NAH, IEH NAB, IX OL, CA VABZIR, ZILDAR K’ ETHARZI. QUASB LONSHIN DE UNPeH A MONONS DE [name of target]; IX TOX/TIOBL MONONS, AZIA EDNAS, OM NACRO OD UMPLIF.

Give strong towers unto [name of person to be protected, or “OL” for oneself], and govern your guard amidst [name of person or “OL” for oneself] to look upon him/her/me (respectively), unto whom Thou givest mercy. Merciful highest, let mercy, renewal, and power grow strong in me and in this heart.
11. Quieting the Mind
If the mind is in turmoil, spiritual progress is difficult. Use this prayer to ask for a quieter mind to be receptive to illumination.
IEH MAAH, DLUGA TON ETHARZI PAMBT OD OI MANIN OD MONONS.
Merciful Hidden God, give all peace unto me and this mind and heart.
12. Healing and Opening the Heart
Who hasn’t known heartache? Yet even a heart that is healed, yet remains closed, will never be at its strongest. Chant this prayer to seek both healing and opening of your heart to the richness that awaits it.
IEH IABES: FBLIARD, CAMLI K’ OD ODO OI MONONS. TORZU, ZACAR, OD ZAMRAN, MONONS, OD SOLPETH BIAL DE IEHUSOZ, BIAL DE JAIDA.

13. Prayer to Protect Oneself or One’s Loved Ones
This prayer is deliberately simple and seems to be best as a long-term protective prayer.
JAIDA, DE BAB DE ILS, DLUGA UMADEA K’ [name of person or “OL” for oneself], OD TABAORI AQLO BRANSG NOTHOA [name of person or “OL”], DORPHAL TOX/TIOBL/OL, ASOBAM ILS DLUGA IEHUSOZ.

14. Prayer to Comfort those in Mourning
This prayer was inspired after a loved one was going through an extended period of mourning for her mother. Her mourning period seemed to close shortly after reciting this prayer.
NAH, IEH MAAH: IX GE [name of deceased] BAMS LORSLQ, RIT, OD MONONS DE [bereaved]; T’IX GE [name of bereaved] BAMS LORSLQ, RIT, OD MONONS DE [name of deceased].

Glorious, merciful, hidden God: do not let [name of deceased] forget the flowers, mercy, and heart of [name of bereaved]; also, do not let [name of bereaved] forget the flowers, mercy, and heart of [name of deceased]. Let the heart of [name of bereaved] live in the heart of [name of deceased], not bringing fear or anger, and let the heart of [name of deceased] live in the heart of [name of bereaved], not bringing fear or anger. Merciful hidden God, give peace and joy of the fruit of heaven and the highest.
15. Asking for more time
Who wouldn’t love more time? Somehow it seems as if we are always running short on it. Recite this prayer to ask the Divine for more time.
JAIDON, OL LAVA ZURAAHUS LAP VADGS OD Q- KOKASB, OD QRASAHI DE UNAL. PAAOXT OD UGEG, IADBALTOH, OD DLUGA OD IOR VOHIM A NAH, OD IEH MOZ, MOZOD, NA-HATH, VE, NOIB, GIGIPAH K’ SAGA CAOSGON OD TIA, SAGA MANO.

Let it remain and grow strong, God of Righteousness, and give and roar mighty with glorious and merciful joy, Divine joy, the spark of life, the breath of life, aye, living breath, unto all the earth and unto us, the whole soul of humanity.
16. For Creative Inspiration
Sometimes the ability to create something new is lacking due to insufficient energy or spirit (as ineffable as these things are). This prayer asks to provide what is needed to bring new ideas, or to bring dormant ideas to life.
GRU AQLO ZONG OD OLPIRT CARMA DE MADRIAX, JAIDA, OD IX PAR ODO OI MONONS, OI MANIN, OD UNAL OOANOAN K’ TURBS DE AQLO BIEN OD PIRGAH, IEH IAD! NOASMI CONISBRA DE OI MANIN OD OI MONONS EMNA MAD, UGEG, CACACOM, OD COAZIOR AQLO PIRGAH OD RIT PAMBT OD K’ SAGA MANO.

Let the work of humanity of this mind and this heart here become pure, grow strong, flourish, and increase your glory and mercy unto me and to the entire soul of humanity.
17. Finding your Purpose.
Finding one’s purpose in this world is difficult, and one need only turn on the news to find examples of people who lack it. With this prayer, the aspirant calls upon the divine for assistance in finding for her or his purpose in the present moment.
BIEN TORZULE NONCA, IAD, FAFEN OMUS CAPIMALI GRUA CAOSG NONKehP. IAD, ILS DLUGA IEH OD NAH BAB, MOZ, OD MOZOD TIA, K’ MONONSA VOM. IAD, ILS EOO A VON: OIT RLU LRL OOE.

Therefore, your will be done! Be friendly to me! Bring down the will of heaven, divine will: yea, the will of God and the secrets of truth, to the intent that they may become abiding in the mind and in and with this heart, and to the intent that they will exist and live and grow strong on the earth. Arise, move, and appear in this heart, this glorious higher truth: my power, the Seed of God. The initiation into the essence of the sun is completed by the One God.
I work with this, correct obedience unto Thee, merciful God, Lord who liveth forever! Place renewal within these eyes and all the deeds of my hands and my feet, and make me walk with the heavens on the earth.
18. Healing your relationship to Earth and Humanity
In this moment, the disruptions of Earth’s ecosystems by pollution and climate change speaks to humanity’s inconsistency in its relationship to earth. Perhaps you feel such an inconsistency in your own feelings toward the earth and to your fellow human beings. If so, you may use this prayer to request divine assistance in improving your relationship to earth and to humanity.

Let humanity fasten the speech of God, to the intent that humanity and earth become as the highest heaven, and one with the highest heaven, diamond-places of comfort, and all sing praises and a song of honor unto Thee for Thy mighty mercy, hidden God.

Prayers 25–28, prayers for protection from the elements, can be combined depending on the nature of the threat (e.g., a wildfire would require protection from both fire and wind, whereas a mudslide and avalanche would require protection from water and earth). If combining, be sure to use a combined form of the God name (e.g., LeHCOMA-NANTA or LEXARP-BITOM), or simply “L.”

*This is a neo-Enochian word and so should be interpreted with caution. It means “elemental” earth.
29 through 32. Prayers to reconcile oneself with the four elements.
Just as you can ask for protection from the elements, you can also request for reconciling yourself with their fundamental energies. The supplicant may use this for stabilizing oneself within Malkuth in the four Kabbalistic worlds, a typical starting point for magicians following magical paths with the Kabbalah as its model.
The supplicant should use the respective God-name for each of the elements; L-BITOM for fire, LEXARP for air, LeHCOMA for water, and L-NANTA for earth. If combining these prayers, the supplicant may simply use the unified God name of “L.”

Merciful and glorious God of elemental (fire, air, water, earth), open the mysteries of your creation, and make [me/name of target] a partaker of the undefiled knowledge of (fire, manifold winds, waters, earth).
*This is a neo-Enochian word and so should be interpreted with caution. It means “elemental” earth.
33. Prayer to reconcile oneself with the energy of the sun.
Just as balancing with the elements is a fundamental task for magicians in the Western Magickal Tradition, so, too, is the balancing with the energies of the planets. Although additional planets have been discovered since Dee’s time, prayers 33–39 reflect only the traditional 7 astrological planets, of which the two luminaries, the sun and moon, have known Enochian names. The remaining names are strictly based on the etymological reference of planets as “wandering” lights (or, as I have chosen to write it in Enochian, “walking” lights), in contrast to the “fixed” stars.
NAH JAIDA, ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA OL NOAS PLAPLI IADNAMAD DE ROR, L DE OLPIRT DS INSI A MADRIAX.
Glorious highest God, open the mysteries of your creation, and make me become a partaker of undefiled knowledge of the sun, the first of the lights which walks in the heavens.

NAH JAIDA, ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA OL NOAS PLAPLI IADNAMAD DE (D, S, O, NORZ, SNI**) DE OLPIRT DS INSI A MADRIAX.
Glorious highest God, open the mysteries of your creation, and make me become a partaker of undefiled knowledge of the (third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh) the second of the lights which walks in the heavens.
**The name of number was derived etymologically from other Enochian words, specifically “SNICOL” (Seven Sheaths) and “COLLAL” (sleeves), which together strongly suggest that “SNI” refers to either the number seven or seventh.
40. Prayer to reconcile oneself with the energy of the sign of Aries.
Prayers 40–51 assume the start of the year coinciding with the spring equinox, the traditional start of the astrological year. A supplicant can combine these prayers during a single petition, if desired, if there is concern as to whether this prayer accurately covers the entirety of the celestial directions.

52. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Malkuth.
The Enochian Aethyrs are proposed to be related to the Kabbalistic system of sephiroth (singular “sephirah”), or spheres of consciousness. These spheres are organized on the Tree of Life, a map of these spheres as mythically related to the tree of the same name in Genesis. Specifically, they have been proposed to be a way to initiate into the sephirah of Binah (Hebrew for “Understanding”; see Louv, 2018). Although initiations into these spheres can occur in different orders, the typical initiatory path which Kabbalistic supplicants follow is: Malkuth (“Kingdom,” the concrete & physical world), Yesod (“Foundation,” the realm of the unconscious & dreams), Hod, (“Splendor,” the realm of the rational intellect), Netzach (“Eternity,” and, in extended form, “Victory,” the realm of love—which “conquers all”), Tiphareth (“Beauty,” the realm of the core of one’s heart, of one’s true will, and compassion), Geburah (“Strength,” the realm of strictness, separation, and severity), and Chesed (“Mercy,” the realm of lovingkindness and philanthropy). It seemed wise to me to compose prayers to God for proper initiation into these prior seven sephirah, before one embarks on scrying the Aethyrs (the final two sephiroth of Chokmah and Kether are treated differently in later chapters). Therefore, Prayers XLI through XLVII are composed to establish these seven lower sephiroth.
Note: for group prayers, substitute “ZURAAHIA” for “ZURAAHUS.”
Prior to prayer 52, you may consider petitioning the angel SANDALPHON (Archangel of Malkuth) by chanting its name ten times.
NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO ADOHI.

56. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Tiphareth.
This prayer may also be useful in obtaining Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels RAPHAEL, (Archangel of Tiphareth), SEMELIEL and BOBOGEL (angelic king of the Sun, which rules Tiphareth), as well as the name of your Holy Guardian Angel (if known) by chanting each of their names six times:

57. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Geburah.
Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels CUMAEL (“Kuh-ma-el”; archangel of Geburah), MADIMIEL, and BABALEL (angelic king of Mars) by chanting each of their names five times:
NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO UMPLIF.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I/we pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of your garland of Mercy.
59 through 65. Prayers to initiate and reconcile oneself with the seven lower sephirah within the sephirah of Malkuth.
In composing the previous prayers for proper initiation into the prior seven sephirah, I noticed that Enochian lends itself to prayers in accordance with the Jewish tradition of “Counting of the Omer,” which involves the counting 50 days taking place between Passover and Shavuot (Leviticus 23:16), one day more than seven weeks. In Kabbalistic tradition, the seven days within these seven weeks can be used to reflect upon the aforementioned seven lowest sephiroth (Malkuth (“Kingdom”) through Chesed (“Mercy”)), as divided into seven sephirothic aspects (i.e., Malkuth of Malkuth; Yesod of Malkuth, Hod of Malkuth,etc.,all the way through Chesed within Chesed). These represent 49 of the 50 gates of Binah, with the final gate being one opened by God unto the supplicant. Therefore, as a supplementary means to one’s working with the Aethyrs, I have composed these prayers for initiations into each of these sephiroth-within-sephiroth, which, if the supplicant desires, can be done in conjunction with the actual Counting of the Omer. For example, instead of ending the prayer with “ADOHI” (Malkuth), as with Prayer 41, she or he instead would end the prayer with “ADOHI DE ADOHI” (Malkuth of Malkuth), continuing through the appropriate prayer for each of the 49 days. On the 50th and final day, one would simply remain reflective and receptive to God’s presence. Such a practice may supplement the supplicant’s scrying of the Enochian Aethyrs.
As with the previous prayers, you may wish to call upon the angels, archangels and governors of the main sephirah being used (e.g., for 59 through 65, use Sandalphon). For advanced work, consider substituting the archangel names of the realm of Briah for Tiphareth, Geburah, and Chesed ONLY (Metatron, Tharshish, & Tzadkiel, respectively); do NOT use this technique for the earlier prayers relating to these sephiroth; advanced study of the Tree of Life correspondences will illuminate the reason for this distinction.

108. Prayer to properly focus oneself on spiritual and earthly matters (L-EHNB).
Should one act on spiritual matters or mundane? Heavenly or earthly? This prayer beseeches the Divine reconciliation of the two in the mind of the supplicant.
IEH IADBALTOH, COMMAH SOR DE OZIEN, NOIB, DE UNAL AZIEN, LASDI, OOANOAN, OI MONONS, DAZI, OD GIGIPAH CAOSGO, A AQLO ADOHI–MOMAO.

109. Prayer for happiness (L).
Whereas Prayer 97 asks God for proper focus of one’s actions, this prayer asks God for reconciling one’s thoughts to the divine, bringing joy to the supplicant.
NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: DLUGAR K’ OL OOANOAN, MONONS, OD MANIN DS PURAN OD SOLPETH A MOZOD, OMP, ANANAEL OD MOMAO K’ AQLO QAAN: NOIB, PIRIPSAX OD CAOSG TA DS AQLO COMMAH TA L. JAIDA, DRIX MOZOD!
Glorious and merciful God, I fervently pray: give unto me eyes, a heart, and mind which see and listen with understanding and secret wisdom unto Thy Creation: yea, The Heavens and The Earth as One. Highest God, bring down Divine joy!
110. Prayer for awareness of many aspects of wisdom.
This prayer requests that God link the supplicant’s mind to that of the laws that have been given unto prior magi. This assumes a universalism to these religions which may not be acceptable to all adherents of the faith. Therefore, this prayer should be interpreted with caution. The belief systems selected for this prayer include, respectively: Holographic Theism in general, Judaism, Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Thelema, and Islam, and the Egyptian worship of Amun (as interpreted by Aleister Crowley) and the principles of PRIAZIOR.

††cf. Lao Tze: “The name that can be named is not the eternal name.”
†††An attempt to translate the Taoist concept of Tzu Jan.
††††An attempt to translate the Taoist concept of Wu Wei, action without exertion, rendered as “stirring up,” specifically using the Enochian word of “stirring up” associated with sin (“sin” itself being taken as mistaken action, in this case, one with exertion).
‡An attempt to translate the Buddhist concept of “ANATTA.”
||1 John 4:8: “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love”; The Book of the Law (I:57): “Love is the law, love under will.”
*These are neo-Enochian words and should be interpreted with caution.
111. Prayer to allow evolution of the heart in concert with the universe.
Thus far there have been 110 prayers, but the 111th prayer is indeed the most special. If you feel called to pray, but aren’t sure which prayer to use, this is the best of all prayers to return to. Eagle-eyed (or bat-eared!) supplicants may notice that the phrase for “all is one” (“TON I eL”) sounds like a Hebrew angel, and indeed, in Hebrew, this appears to mean “Favor of God.” I believe this angelic name to have been revealed as a result of the composition of this prayer.

Highest and hidden God: your speech [literally “speech of God”] trusseth together all. Cause this/these heart(s) to become pure, and one—yea, united—with all (for all is one), to the intent that heart remains in the place of purity, the center of the secret sun of God which giveth understanding.
*Neo-Enochian words, which should be interpreted with caution.
**If desired, substitute encoded versions of these words and phrases: “ZZZDZ” (Zod-Zod-Zoh-Dee-Zod), “LZZD” (eL-Zod-Zoh-Dee), & “ZDLZL” (Zoh-Dee-eL-Zod-eL) for JAIDA, MAAH, & “TON I eL,” respectively.
