General Observations

This ritual was originally intended to ceremonially recreate certain chambers that became available in the course of working within the 15th Aethyr. It has also developed into a concise method of opening the Enochian Watchtowers.

Traditionally, the entities called by this rite are first to be summoned by the recital of the first six Enochian calls. But so far I have found that, for daily use, an elemental banishing can be sufficient preparation. For more specific workings, e.g. specific interactions with these entities, the appropriate call do seem to be necessary.

Notes

  1. Thanks to Frater Spartacus for his permission to use his 12 Banners in this
    slightly modified form. At least in the beginning, it may be helpful to
    vibrate and trace the three-lettered banners three times, the four-lettered
    banners four times, and the fire-letterd banners five times. I have also
    found it useful to visualize each banner as one ray in a twelve-rayed crown
    radiating from the center of the galaxy.

  2. Credit goes here to Frater Achad Osher 583 for his Enochian Pentagram
    Ritual, of which this is a modified fragment. A possible visualization for
    the Kings: Bataivah --- a yellow humanoid, Raagiosl --- a blue bird of prey,
    Ikzhhkal --- a black bull or ox, Edlprnaa --- a red lion. Each King also
    possesses six wings and eyes all around his head.

  3. Notice that the downward pointing triangle is traced deosil, the upward
    triangle widdershins.

  4. Taken from "The Vision and the Voice," 9th Aethyr. Also, try reading
    "Liber Israfel" at this point.
