Subj: Sign of the Enterer
... The basic gesture is a drawing of energy from a divine source through the
body and then forcibly forward in the direction being invoked, capped with
silence. Stand first straight up, with your arms out at your sides like the
first step of a snow angel. Visualize the deity (do it your way), and vibrate
the name. To vibrate, draw in a deep breath as your hands rise to your
temples. The name of the god/dess rides the in breath, unmanifested, in
through your nose and down to your feet. Remain with breath held for a few
seconds, and then let fly forward with the name, which rushes from the soles
of your feet all the way out your hands and forward. As you project the name,
hurl yourself forward at the waist and let your hands shoot out like Superman
taking flight, straight out ahead of you. This ends when you're bent over
almost at a right angle and the force of the name is completely projected.
"It is a sign of success when the name of the god is heard as though bellowed
forth as a thousand thunders" (Liber O is only Class D [Official Ritual] so I
can quote it badly all I want :-) You can say the name in projection if your
environment is conducive, but it's not really neccessary. When you are
hurtling forward, your right foot should shoot out about a foot in front of
you or you will give yourself a concussion when your head hits the floor.
After projection, mental stability is restored and the energy is fixed
using the sign of Harpocrates, the essential part of which is the finger to
the lips and either a solemn or a bemused expression.
See the Aeon Thoth Tarot card for a good God-form to assume in the sign of
silence which seals the projection. ...
