Greater Ritual of the Double Pentagram

The ominously named GROD ritual is a recent innovation based on a cosmology I extrapolated from the Mithras Liturgy (which is not really a liturgy, nor is it strictly speaking about Mithras). It is also based upon earlier work I have done with integrating the sublime and mythic realities.

This ritual, however, isn’t about working with a deity at all. It’s about your relationship with yourself.

As mystics, we spend a lot of time reaching up into the higher worlds. As human beings, we experience a lot of things we wish we hadn’t. Either of these things can cause parts of our spiritual nature to retreat back into the higher worlds. This ritual is designed as a framing ritual for any work you might do to help get those parts of yourself back.

As with everything I have up on my blog: the version here isn’t necesarily the final version. If you can get hold of me, I’m happy to update you on whatever discoveries I may have made in the interim about anything you find here.

Set Up

You will need a wand. It need not be fancy. A well chosen stick will do, or may I recommend a nice wooden chop stick? I do not recommend using a wand that you typically use for other work with this ritual until you know how the energies of it resonate with you.

Because we are dealing with seven directions, it is useful to mark out seven points around you in some way. The first time I tried this ritual, I just had sticky notes on the walls. Placing small stones around you in a circle is another good trick in a limited space.

The directions are: East, South East, South, West, North West, North, North East. You can also just evenly space your seven altars, stones, or post it notes around the room, starting in the East.

The work at hand

This is where you do any work you have planned for the session. If you are just looking to test this out, maybe try doing an energy raising of your choice, some meditation, or even a little exercise.
