The First Rite of the Twelve has been opened
(previously to this, the Bornless Rite and the opening ritual of the Pentagram have been performed)
under a cloudless sky I constructed a circle of hand selected beach pebbles I have gathered over time and lit a fire within said circle the ground was damp so had to use firelighters and kindling galore and, as the flames rose, addressed our Patron Deities along with the Ancestor Spirits of the Druids.
I traced the Chakra symbol along with a specially designed sigil I have been meditating on - a personalised glyph to represent this specific Rite- I traced this with the iron Athame, towards each of the cardinal points, citing the corresponding element for each direction then focused on the circle of fire in front of me, the circle representing both the wheel of fortune and the world.
A personalised offering of camphor, flax, Abramelin oil and bent copper was then placed into the fire, again, each at a cardinal point and each representing a specific element.
I poured my intent into the flames in this state of meditive gnosis, I focused my Will on a the mafestation of the turning wheel and the coming of Glorious New Order. 20/20 2 - the duality of all. Clarity. Sight. Insight.
All these things I willed manifest in the coming year.
Then, representing the 5th element of Spirit/Ether, I placed a bundle of sage and a splash of whisky right into the centre of the fire along with a square of paper that displayed a hand drawn copy of the Rite's glyph/sigil.
I watched and meditated over the flamed as they faded to embers, their bright yellow licking light leaving flickering tracers in my vision. This lasted approx 4 or 5 min difficult to keep track of time in an exact manner during these states of consciousness
I thanked the Patron Ancestor Spirits & Deities for their attendance, dedicated the ceremony to them, beeseeched them to bless and assist us in our Endeavor then, now operating widdershins, sealed the circle I had opened by again tracing the chakras, (represented by inverse swastikas this time) & the Glyph toward each corresponding cardinal point again, followed by the requisite LBRP.
The Iron blade of the Athame was then plunged into the fading embers for 2 heartbeats then removed and ritually cleaned with a flannel of Egyptian cotton.
The circle was then (after the embers cooled) deconstructed and stored in a northward point in my garden ready for next month's Second Rite of the Twelve 20/20.
