Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
I found this one in the book Modern Magick: Eleven Lessons in the High Magickal Arts by Donald Michael Kraig

STEP ONE: Sit or lay in a place where you will not be disturbed for at least five minutes. Remember to unplug the telephone. Get comfortable. If you are sitting, your back should be straight. Whether sitting or lying down, your legs and arms should not be crossed. If sitting, rest your hands, palms down, in your lap. Your eyes should be closed.

STEP TWO: Visualize a golden ball of beautiful, warm light surrounding your feet. If you cannot "see" the ball of light when you visualize it, that is okay. Just know that it is there. Truly know that if your powers of visualization were different you would be able to see it. The ball of golden warm light always brings peace and total relaxation. Wherever the ball of light goes, tension departs. Let it go, and as it goes, feel your feet filled with the warm, golden glow of peace and total relaxation.

STEP THREE: Now allow this ball of light to rise up your legs and up your torso. Then allow it to go down your arms to your fingers, and finally up your neck and into your head until you are completely covered with the warm, golden glow of total peace and relaxation, and all tension is gone. If you notice tension anywhere, send the ball of light there and the tension will vanish.

STEP FOUR: Stay in this state of deep relaxation for a few moments. Know that you can return to this state whenever you like simply by doing the relaxation ritual. If you are having trouble sleeping, try this ritual when you lay down at night instead of suffering or taking dangerous pills. Be at one with yourself.

STEP FIVE: When you are ready to come out of this state of deep relaxation, take three deep breaths and feel fresh life and energy coming into your body with each breath. Be sure to record your experience in your ritual diary.


While this little ritual is pretty elementary it is the first stepping stone and a similar ritual is found in most magickal systems as the first step. I chose the one by Kraig to post because it isnīt worded very awkwardly and even the most novice can easily utilize it.

Lay down comfortably and relax. Take a few deep breaths. Count your breaths 1-10 and then start again at 1 until your mind shuts up. Very simple.

The Dragonīs Eye is a Druidic Rite of Protection. Brought into Celtic mysticism from The Pheryllt, the Dragonīs Eye has long been a powerful protective symbol. Release itīs power with this invocation.

Iīm sure there is a way to control them...give me some time and weīll get there, unless you guys let this thread die.

But you may wish to start off right now by keeping a dream journal. As soon as you wake up write your dreams down in a journal...then later you can analyze them and discover what kind of dreams you are having and even research the symbolism in them.

They canīt be any worse than mine.luv

Re: Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
Okay, letīs travel down the rabbit hole a bit further.

If you have a deck of tarot cards then this next exercise is great. If not you can use Biblical Scripture, Islamic Scripture, Hindu Scripture, etc. Tarot works best, though, because of the flash card aspect of them.

First you want to remove the 22 cards of the Major Arcana. The Major Arcana are the 22 cards numbered from 0 to 21 that are not part of the four suits (the suits vary from deck to deck but are generally cups, wands, swords, and pentacles). From the 22 cards remove the cards numbered 6, 7, 10, 13, 15, and 18 and place them with the rest of the deck. Keep the remaining cards of the Major Arcana with you and perform the relaxation ritual posted above.

After completing the relaxation ritual take the 16 cards that you kept out of the deck and mix them up (shuffle) in any way you wish until you feel the need to stop.

Select any one card and stare at the picture for no longer than 3 minutes.

Take three deep breaths and the Tarot contemplation exercise is complete.

Record the card name and number in your magickal journal. Also write down any feelings, sensations or ideas you receive while contemplating the cards.

Re: Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
I would also add that each one of the Major Arcana also corresponds with one of the "paths" on the Tree of Life. An excellent essay on the Tree of Life and Sacred Geometry can be found at [link to angelsgrimoire.com]

Re: Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
Letīs now borrow the basics from The Golden Dawn System as written by Israel Regardie.

1. The Four Elements of the Ancients are duplicated conditions of:

Heat and Dryness Fire
Heat and Moisture Air
Cold and Dryness Earth
Cold and Moisture Water

2. The Signs of the Zodiac are twelve

. 1. Aries, the Ram
. 2. Taurus, the Bull
. 3. Gemini, The Twins
. 4. Cancer, The Crab
. 5. Leo, The Lion
. 6. Virgo, The Virgin
. 7. Libra, The Scales
. 8. Scorpio, The Scorpion
. 9. Sagittarius, The Archer
. 10. Capricorn, The Goat
. 11. Aquarius, The Water-Bearer
. 12. Pisces, The Fisher

These Twelve Signs are distributed among the Four Triplicities or sets of three Signs, each being attributed to one of teh Four Elements, and they represent the operation of the elements of the Zodiac.

Thus to Fire belong Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Thus to Earth belong Taurus, Virgo, Capricornus
Thus to Air belong Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Thus to Water belong Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

From The Golden Dawn by Israel Regardie p. 99-100.

Re: Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
The Ancients knew of six Planets which they classed THE SUN as one of them. The North and South Nodes of the Moon were also assigned planetary values which is the points where her orbit touched during that of the Ecliptic.

These were named
. Caput Draconis - Head of the Dragon and
. Cauda Draconis - Tail of the Dragon

Since the discovery of Neptune and Uranus or Herschel, these two terms have been partially replaced.

The Old Planets are:

Saturn
Jupiter
Mars
Sol
Venus
Mercury
and Luna, The Moon.

{{{STEP ONE: Sit or lay in a place where you will not be disturbed for at least five minutes. Remember to unplug the telephone. Get comfortable. If you are sitting,}}}

Best for beginners - is muscle tension - then relax.

Tense muscles for count of 10 - then relax

RIGHT -Toes, foot, ankle, lower leg, calf, knee, thigh, buttock,

then LEFT

Etc. Etc.

This is MOST effective because it retrains the Brain to Muscle path.

After a Month or so of this - other methods can be used which are quicker.

PS - At one time I trained myself to fall asleep in 10 Seconds - For REAL.

Re: Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
That is some good advice Daniel.

The Hebrew Alphabet represents both letters and numbers. Each letter has a corresponding number and also a meaning.

Five of the letters have different shapes when written at the end of a word and also a different number.

Mem (final) is distinguished by being the only oblong letter.

The other four finals - Kaph, Nun, Pe, and Tzaddi have tails that should extend below the line much like an English lower case y, g, and j.

Both Hebrew and Chaldee letters are written from right to left.

The Qabalists refer to the highest and most abstract ideas as the Emanations of Deity or Sephiroth. There are ten of them and each one corresponds to one of the ten points on The Tree of Life.

They are:

1. Kether - K-Th-R = The Crown
2. Chokmah - Ch-K-M-H = Wisdom
3. Binah - B-I-N-H = Understanding
4. Chesed - Ch-S-D = Mercy
5. Geburah - G-B-U-R-H = Severity
6. Tipareth - Th-Ph-A-R-Th = Beauty
7. Netzach - N-Ts-Ch = Victory
8. Hod - H-O-D = Glory
9. Yesod - Y-S-O-D = The Foundation
10. Malkuth - M-L-K-U-Th = The Kingdom

The Dagesh or the pointers which represent vowel sounds are not given. It didnīt come about until later in an effort to standardize pronunciation in Hebrew.

There are 22 letters in all and as mentioned above each one corresponds with one of the Major Arcana and thus one of the paths on the tree of life. Their Power, Value, Name and Meaning are given below.

Power Value Name Meaning
A 1 Aleph Ox
B,V 2 Beth House
G,Gh 3 Gimel Camel
D,Dh 4 Daleth Door
H 5 He Window
O,U,V 6 Vau Pin or Hook
Z 7 Zayin Sword or Armor
Ch 8 Cheth Fence, Enclosure
T 9 Teth Snake
I,Y 10 Yod Hand
K,Kh 20,500 Kaph Fist
L 30 Lamed Ox Goad
M 40,600 Mem Water
N 50,700 Nun Fish
S 60 Samekh Prop
Aa,Ngh 70 Ayin Eye
P,Ph 80,800 Pe Mouth
Tz 90,900 Tzaddi Fish-hook
Q 100 Qoph Ear.Back of head
R 200 Resh Head
S,Sh 300 Shin Tooth
T,Th 400 Tau Cross

Re: Relaxation Ritual -- Building on Magick
Following text taken from The Golden Dawn by Israel Regardie p. 105.

Meditation No. 1
Let the Neophyte consider a point as defined in mathematics - having position but no magnitude - and let him note the ideas to which this gives rise. Concentrating their facilities on this, as a focus, let him endeavour to realise the immanance of the Divine throughout Nature, in all her respects


Begin by finding a position, balanced, but sufficiently comfortable. Breathe rhythmically until the body is still and the mind quiet. Keep this state for a few minutes at first - and for longer as you get more used to preventing the mind from wandering. Think now of the subject for meditation in a general way - then choose out one thought or image and follow that to its conclusion.

The simplest rhythm for the beginner is the Fourfold Breath.

1. Empty the lungs and remain thus while counting 4.
2. Inhale, counting 4 so that you can feel filled with breath to the throat.
3. Hold this breath wile counting 4.
4. Exhale, counting 4 till the lungs are empty.

This should be practised, counting slowly or quickly till you obtain a rhythm that suits you - one that is comforting and stilling.

Having attained this, count the breath thus for two or three minutes, till you feel quiet, and then proceed with the meditation.
