As I write this, I have ten days before I begin with the ritual known as gebofal, or at least a decent reconstruction of the spirit of what it may have been. For the most part, I will be following the works of Aaron Leitch, who is quite the Godsend when it comes to all things Enochian. The prayer that I will be reciting is 999 words, which leaves the 1000th word/insight to come from the Divine, as a parallel to the 50th day of illumination following the 49 days of the Counting of the Omer.
I started this work back in August of last year after having studied it for a couple of months prior (all you fans of astrology will note that Mars was at the beginning of its extended stay in Aries, my 9th house). and at the time I wasn’t sure I would be able to finish in time for an auspicious start to the gebofal ritual. The angels gave Dee & Kelley 40 days to finish the work, which is nigh impossible for a human being in my view. Perhaps if you multiply 24*40 for 960 hours, there’s a case to be made for 40 days.
A few notes about my approach: for each day I would work on the book, I would activate and wear the lamen and ring, and often I would activate the Sigillum Dei Aemeth also. Eventually, I lost some feeling in the tip of my middle right finger, but I made the choice consciously to sacrifice that. After each leaf, I would energetically activate it, as with any sigil, via gnosis (via the usual means). During the process, I’ve had a run of good luck, and noticeably so, without injuries or much in the way of things going wrong; it’s almost as if the intent and acts to work on Amzes Naghezes Hardeh has caused the angels to form a protective field around me. I’ll also add that Mars, the malefic out of sect of my day natal astrological chart, was also less Mars-y, or should I say I was focused on my will. With it in my ninth house, I was focused on the will to do something spiritual, which of course fits.
All that’s left to do now is nine days of purification prior to the 28th, the day after Passover. I’m not Jewish, but was baptized Christian, and have come to be reconciled to some degree with Christianity. I will be re-doing Leaf 49 (see my 3rd update to “A Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 6“), which is more of a correction/purification than the restructuring of Leaf 1. I’ll also be correcting/purifying Leaves 2-10 and through about Leaf 25 or 30 thereafter, mainly on some incorrect letter identification on my part or on the part of previous transcribers whose work I was relying on to supplement my own judgment. I pretty much know the mistakes I made, so I know what to look for. I think I’ll be able to get it done…maybe.
I hope to only need six days to finish all of my corrections. These six days parallel, the creation of the world and the day of rest of God in Genesis, only in reverse (for today is my day of rest): much as the angels continually reflected on Jesus’ phrase, “the first shall be last, and the last, first.” The final three days I hope to recite personal prayers that the gebofal working is seen through, and this parallels the “mystery of the Trinity” spoken of by the angel of Wisdom, Galvah; it also parallels the three days encompassing death and resurrection of Christ.
I don’t have much more to add at this point. I’m already feeling fairly introspective as the 9-day period of purification approaches, so this is definitely quite the ritual. I can only anticipate it being intense, since this is a thrice-daily scrying of each Aethyr, followed by 19 additional calls (I will assume the last call will be the reading of Leaf 1 itself).
Please wish or pray for my luck and providence in this task. Thank you.
