THE THELEMIC MIDDLE
PILLAR EXERCISE

Issued by the
Thelemic Order
of the Golden Dawn

 

The following is the Thelemic Middle Pillar Exercise.

Visualize yourself standing in the Temple, facing West.

Formulate the Black Pillar of Severity on your right side and the White Pillar of Mercy on your left side.

Imagine now that the Black Pillar is reflected in your left side and the White Pillar in your right side.

Visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light emanating seven inches from above your head. Inhale deeply and vibrate the Holy Name PTAH.

Bring down the Light from above and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at the nape of your neck. Inhale deeply and vibrate the Holy Name TAHUTI.

Bring down the Light and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at your heart center. Inhale deeply and vibrate the Holy Name RA.

Bring down the Light and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at your genital region. Inhale deeply and vibrate the Holy Name ANPU.

Bring down the Light and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at your feet. Inhale deeply and vibrate the Holy Name SEB.

Circulate the Light by formulating in your Aura the Talismatic Atom.

Equilibrate the Light by formulating the Thelemic Cross, thus:

Touch the forehead, and say HOOR-PAAR-KRAAT.

Touch the breast, and say HERU-RA-HA.

Touch the genitals, and say RA-HOOR-KHUIT.

Touch the right shoulder, and say TA-NECH.

Touch the left shoulder, and say BES-NA-MAUT.

Place the two palms of the hands together upon the breast, and say ANKH-AF-NA-KHONSU, visualizing a five-petaled Rose blossoming from the Center of the Cross.
