Greetings steemians! Those of us on the esoteric-trail were very pleased with the results of our first contest and we decided that we wanted to start a group working to benefit the community. I had the idea of doing an angelic working that I have had success with practicing with an online group in the past and everyone seemed to be in agreement with it. We decided that the best thing for us to do would be a working to help raise the price of steem. For this ritual working we will be working with one of the 72 angels of the Shemhamphorash which are derived from the 72 names of God. The ritual is adapted from the one described in the book The 72 Angels of Magick: Instant Access to the Angels of Power by Damon Brand. Get it on Amazon!
Since we wanted to raise the price of steem and because steem has started improving I decided that the best angel to work with for this would be Nememiah who has as one of his powers the power to improve prosperity. This is an angel to call on when financial matters have started to improve and this angel helps build the momentum.
The ritual consists of first calling on the angel Arzel who opens the way for us to contact the other angels. Then we call upon Raziel who makes our voices heard by the other angels. Finally, we call upon Nememiah and ask him to do what we want. Angel magick works much better typically when you share the results so we wanted to make sure to do something that would benefit the whole community.
These angels are good for this type of group ritual because for one thing banishings aren't required as there is no need to protect yourself from these angels and therefore it is very safe and good for beginners. I still open and close with the LBRP and the Rose Cross ritual but you can use any banishings you wish or none at all. The working consists of performing the ritual every day for 11 days. Workings begin on a Thursday and end on a Sunday so we will begin our working on Thursday, July 27 and it will end on Sunday, August 6.
The ritual makes use of the Shem talisman and an angelic sigil for calling Nememiah and these need to be charged before performing the ritual. You need only charge them once and once you have charged the Shem talisman you will not need to do so again for future workings with other angels. The sigil will also remain charged if you ever decide to work with Nememiah again.
This is the Shem talisman:
The talisman can be printed or you can use the electronic version. Either works equally well. It is the image of it and not the physical representation that is important. To charge the talisman find a comfortable place you will not be disturbed. In your mind's eye picture the sun shining in the sky. Picture the sun shrinking and moving down towards your heart until it comes to rest as a shining star in your heart. Now gaze at the talisman, tracing the shapes of the letters with your eyes. It doesn't matter whether or not you know what the letters mean as it is the shape of them that is important. While doing this picture the sky darkening with thick thunder clouds. Now picture the talisman moving to meet the sun in your heart. When the talisman reaches your heart imagine a thunderbolt striking the talisman. Gaze at the sigil again and once more trace the shapes of the letters with your eyes but this time know that the letters you are tracing are now within you. The talisman is now charged.
This is the sigil for Nememiah:
Charge this after you charge the talisman the same way. You can do it right after or any time after, it doesn't matter so long as it you charge the talisman first. Tomorrow I will post instructions for the ritual. Til then, have fun and happy steeming!
