Invoking Spirit

The five steps to perform an Invoking of Spirit Ritual are to 1) decide upon and frame your intention, 2) face East and draw the symbol for Spirit Above slightly in front of you and above your head in a clockwise direction in bright transparent violet flame, 3) draw the symbol for Spirit Below slightly in front of you and toward your feet in bright transparent orange flame, 4) touch your chest in the area of your heart as a symbol for Spirit Within and visualize filling yourself with bright white light, and 5) state your intention.

Spirit is the Element of your Spiritual Path and Spiritual Energies. It resides above the Tree of Life in the Unmanifest World. Here your highest intentions for your Spiritual Growth reside. So too do your worst fears for your Spiritual Life. We normally invoke the highest intentions for our Spiritual Growth and banish all possible negative intentions. Put your intention into your own words. This is Step One.

Face East and place your index finger in front of you and pointing above you. This point is the front of a circle. Draw a curving line around to your right to make a circle. Imagine or visualize this circle as being brilliant, transparent, violet flame composed of one inch thick lines and a violet flame filling the whole circle. This is Step Two.

Place your index finger in front of you and pointing down below you. This point is the front of a circle. Draw a curving line around to your right to make a circle. Imagine or visualize this circle as being brilliant, transparent, orange flame composed of one inch thick lines and an orange flame filling the whole circle. This is Step Three.

Point your index finger at your heart and touch your chest. This represents your Spirit Within. Imagine or visualize yourself being filled with brilliant white light. This is Step Four.

For Step Five voice your intention to bring your highest aspirations into your Spiritual Life and banish all your lower aspirations.

Steps Six and Seven are optional as the Spirit Element never needs to be banished nor does an invocation of the Spirit Element need to be closed. But should the magician decide to do so, Step Six is to leave the ritual open for awhile and Step Seven is to close it by banishing the Spirit Element.

The steps for banishing the Spirit Element are exactly the same except the symbols for both Spirit Above and Spirit Below are drawn in a counter-clockwise direction.

We suggest you try these rituals for one week. Continue practicing until you're comfortable invoking Spirit. Then put it all together in one ritual for Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Spirit.
