middle eastern magick part 2 practices of the sahiriin

16 Jun

the sahiriin practice various forms of shamanism. they would do pathworking, meditation, magick work, and communicate with spirits. which includes through divination and seances.
i wont go into details about their seances. only a short description i will give.
usually all their practices were either held in an area  outside of a dwelling place. or a designated area of their home.
this area is called a burqa’h. here a circle or square was drawn. this circle or square is where spirits are summoned.
the ritual begins with a candle place on the right side of the circle. and a glass or container of water on the left side of the circle.
also incense is place on the lower right of the circle.
the sahir would take salt and spread the salt along the circle. and then place a magick square that is used to summon the spirit.
these squares are called mouraba. and  these squares: about 7 of them correspond to a day of the week. and on each square was written a series of letters in arabic .
they would place the square inside the circle or large square. and depending on the sahir’s religious background. they would invoke a deity whatever that be allah or allat. would bless the circle. and call the entity into the circle.
the spirit would either communicate through a pendulum hung on a stick that the sahir would hold over the circle, cast lots, or paper folded into a triangle.
sometimes two other squares are used. these are use for dedication, petition, and devotion.
they are called the siha kalma, jazaam kibaat, daa-irat al shams al koubra, tasiir.
the first is used for healing, the second for protection, the third  and fourth are  for meditation, shamanistic path working, petition, and devotion.
i will not go into too much details on how to use these squares. only the sahir use them with great care.
in part 3  i will write about what spirits that they communicate and commune with.
