"And when, after all the phantoms have vanished, thou shalt see that holy and formless Fire, that fire which darts and flashes through the hidden depths of the universe, hear thou the voice of Fire".




THE MIDDLE PILLAR



The Middle Pillar exercise is in my opinion, one of the best meditations for the beginner in Western Magick. It teaches concentration, gives the ability to feel and see light flowing thru and around the aura of the Magickian, cleanses the aura and creates a protective field around the Magickian.

(Now don't send me flaming emails for saying this, but with practice and determination, all this can be achieved). This being said, lets get on with the meditation.

Stand facing East. Feel and see yourself growing larger and larger, untill the Earth is just a small revolving orb at your feet. (note: face whichever direction you feel comfortable. Different traditions will vary on the directions faced).

Visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light emanating several inches above your head. Inhale deeply and vibrate the divine name EHEIEH, which means I AM THAT I AM.

Next, bring the Light down from above and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at the nape of your neck. Inhale deeply and vibrate the divine name YEHOWAH ELOHIM(Yod-Heh-Vau-Heh-Eloheem).

Bring down the Light and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at your heart centre. Inhale deeply and vibrate the divine name YEHOWAH ELOAH va-DAATH(YOD-HEH-VAU-HEH EL-OH-AH-VA-DATH) or IAO. The former means LORD GOD OF ALL KNOWLEDGE and the latter is a Gnostic name of THE SUN.

Bring down the Light and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at your genital region. Inhale deeply and vibrate the divine name SHADDAI EL CHAI, which means ALMIGHTY GOD OF LIFE.

Bring down the Light and visualize a Flaming Sphere of brilliant White Light at your feet. Inhale deeply and vibrate the divine name ADONAI HA-ARETZ, which means LORD OF EARTH.

Next, focus your attention on the sphere of light above your head. As you exhale, bring the light down your left side to the sphere of light beneath your feet. Inhale, and bring it back up your right side to the sphere above your head, forming a Circle of brilliant Light.

Now, focus your attention on the sphere above your head again. Exhale, and bring the light down the front of your body to the sphere of light beneath your feet. Inhale, and bring it back up the rear of your body to the sphere above your head, forming a Circle of brilliant White Light. Repeat this as many times as it takes to see and feel this sphere of brilliant Light around you. (Do not feel bad if you don't see or feel it at first, it takes practice).

Relax for a few moments as you feel yourself inside a sphere of White Light, which envelopes your entire Aura, or "Sphere of Sensation".

Next, focus your attention on the sphere beneath your feet. Inhale, and bring a brilliant shaft of Light through your body and up your spine to the sphere above your head. Exhale, and as you do, visualize an explosion of Light that rains gently down upon you and is collected into the sphere beneath your feet. (Repeat this as many times as you wish until you feel you are comfortable).

Next, feel and see yourself shrinking back to your own size, until you are standing once again where you were when you started. Take a deep breath and return to normal once again. Feel the pulsation of the Energy for as long as you wish.
