the tetragrammaton ritual

25 Aug

this ritual was discovered by accident during my studies in the zohar. as well. as inspired by the work of donald tyson entitled tetragrammaton.
as taught in the zohar and other books such as the sefer yetzirah the four letters of God’s name are establish in the four directions
of the earth as well as the universe. they are as follows:
the first letter yod is towards the east; it represents god the father,
the second letter hey is towards the south; it represents goddess the mother,
the third letter vau is towards the west; it represents  god the son,
the fourth letter hey is towards the north; it represents goddess the daughter
when  i do the ritual i  do the following:
in my living space of my home. i light a candle and burn stick incense.
and i say the following:
in your name  Infinite One God father mother i bless my home. and i invoke the letters of your name and bless them in the four directions
of the earth and the universe.
i face the east and i say barakh yod;
i face the south and i say barakh hey
i face the  west  and i say barakh vau
i face the  north and i say barakh hey.
i turn and face the east. and i  close the ritual with this prayer:
how great is thy name oh God. may it clear all negativity from this space and dark spirits.
barukh attah Ha Shem amen.
put out the incense. but  let the candle stay lit a little bit longer.

my views about the divine

lilith a succubus weeps by richard g tanzer

i write this as an explanation of  my convictions on what  i believe in. first of all i do believe in a god. that god has been revealed through out history in every religion; in every philosphy. in every belief system. whatever it be as God, adonai, allah, cerunnos, dagda, odin, shiva, etc. i believe that every god in mythology is an avatar of the divine masculine. and that these gods exist as such as well as being his sons. i believe in the goddess. and she too has been revealed in every religion; in every philosphy, in every belief system. whatever she be  as Sophia,  mary the virgin, the Shekinah, Wisdom, allat, shaktai,  frigga, boann,  etc. i believe that every goddess in mythology is an avatar of the divine feminine and these goddesses  exist as such and   are her daughters. i believe there are angels. they serve as  messengers of the divine between the high god/goddess to his/her children the gods and goddesses. i believe in demons or dark entities whom believe that they are outside divine rule. but they are not. for they serve as  testers of  one’s will and faith in the eyes of the divine. even in their hatred of the light in itself is a form of correction. i believe in the existence of beings that exist between angels and demons. and are in service of the gods and goddesses. but are also their children. these beings are called the fae or djinn. their mother is a goddess one of the feminine divine’s first. she is Lilith. it is said she was the wife  of adam qadmon the primodial being father of all. and she is the first eve ;mother of all. however they had other children these were another Adam, Eve, and Lilith. these were the great grand children of the Divine Feminine and Masculine. and like her mother the second Lilith became a mother of newer group of fae and djinn. this is my belief. and although this is what i believe in. it is always changing as i learn something new. i know that  not everyone will share this belief. and i’m certain that they will have strong evidence. to backup their beliefs. i’m always open to new ideas, to new inspirations, to new insights that help my beliefs to grow. for the one thing that the divine asks of us is to love. and be tolerant of others. and always be open minded while staying true to our based convictions. namaste!
