Take a steel dagger or knife in the right hand. Face East. If you don’t have a dagger or knife, visualise a sword.
Touch thy forehead and say Ateh (Thou art).
Touch thy breast and say Malkuth (the Kingdom).
Touch thy right shoulder and say ve-Geburah (and the Power).
Touch thy left shoulder and say ve-Gedulah (and the Glory).
Clasp thy hands before thee and say le-Olam (forever).
Dagger between fingers, point up and say Amen.
The Construction of the Circle
Make in the Air toward the East the banishing Pentagram of Air and, bringing the point to the center of the Pentagram, vibrate the Deity Name Yod-He-Vau-He, imagining that your voice carries forth to the East of the Universe.
Holding the dagger out before you, go to the South, make the Pentagram and vibrate similarly the deity name Adonai.
Go to the West, make the Pentagram and vibrate Eheieh.
Go to the North, make the Pentagram and vibrate Agla.
Return to the East and complete your circle by bringing the dagger point to the center of the first Pentagram.
The Invocation of the Archangels
Stand with arms outstretched in the form of a cross and say:
Before me Raphael.
Behind me Gabriel.
At my right hand Michael.
At my left hand Auriel.
The Affirmation of the Circle
Before me flames the Pentagram, and behind me shines the six-rayed Star.
Make the Qabalistic Cross as directed above.
