OF THE TATTWAS
Issued by the
of the Golden Dawn
This Ritual is to be performed
by the Zelator of the Thelemic
Order of the Golden Dawn in order
to obtain elemental visions.
Perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.
Perform the Lesser Invoking Ritual of the Pentagram. In this you must trace the Pentagram that is appropriate to the Tattwa you wish to investigate.
Face the elemental quarter attributed to the Tattwa you wish to investigate, and seat yourself in a comfortable posture.
Gaze upon the Tattwa symbol, fixing your attention on it.
Vibrate the name of the Tattwa. This may be repeated several times, to assist your concentration on the Tattwa.
Transfer the image of the Tattwa symbol to a white surface, and you will see, by reflex optical action, the Tattwa symbol in its complementary color.
Close your eyes and visualize the Tattwa symbol as standing before you, and enlarge the Tattwa symbol to the size of a door.
Visualize yourself rising out of your physical body, and in your imagination enter the plane of the Element through the door, giving the Sign of the Enterer on passing through it. In this you should be robed in the color that is appropriate to the Element.
Once you are in the plane of the Element, remain still and vibrate the God Name, Archangelic Name, and the Angelic Name of the Element until a guide answering to the nature of the Element approaches you. When this guide appears, test him by giving to him the Sign of the Element, and if he is true to the Element he will answer you with the same Sign. If not, you must banish him with the appropriate elemental Pentagram, and continue to vibrate the Divine Names till a guide true to the Element appears, who will then properly guide you through the vision.
When the vision of the Tattwa is complete, the guide of the Element will lead you back to the door from where you commenced the vision. You should then give thanks to the guide, return as you entered through the door, and withdraw back into your physical body with the Sign of Silence.
Open your eyes, stand up in the Sign of Silence, and stamp your right foot or clap your hands, bringing your awareness back to your physical body.
Perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram; and duly record and analyze your vision in your Magical Diary, yea, duly record and analyze your vision in your Magical Diary.
