RITUAL MAGIC IN THE 21ST CENTURY
The techniques of magic in this book are suitable for both novice and experienced initiates. Using the mind as a mental jig saw, the text shows practical ways to develop psychic abilities which the magician can use to form and charge magical images.
Rituals include Rending the Veil incoporating the Rite of the River; setting up your magical temple, using a prayer of dedication typical of this modern approach to ritual magic. Rituals suitable for our modern lifestyle will provide results as powerful if not stronger than those from antiquity. A ceremony to contact archangelical forces leans back into tradition, while a completely new approach to making a magical talisman takes a practical leap into Time and Space Magic. A sequence of 6 rituals from this area leads the magician from simple, easy to perform rites to complex, powerful ceremonies that can be used either by individuals or by groups of initiates.
References to Magical Alphabets, the Qabalah and traditional Hermetic Magic show the evolutionary roots of Time and Space. Step into the future with this dynamic style of ritual magic. Read this illustrated 124 page guide by the author of Dare to Make Magic and founder member of the Order of the Cubic Stone and experience Ritual Magic in the 21st century. Here is practical magical tuition in an easy to read format now available for anyone determined to succeed.

23.09.2017 The Mental Temple.
The basic concept with which we deal is still essentially the same, but this exercise is an example of mingling earth rituals with mental exercises. It is particularly effective in learning to be aware of the forces present in any ceremonies you perform. We always need continuity in our communications and so it is recommended that regular training sequences are useful. This is a more effective training exercise than might at first be obvious.
1.Creat a mental temple in your mind. It is of a traditional concept with an altar, candlesticks, water container, perhaps a magical wand and any other paraphernalia you think useful and find easy to visualise. This may seem a retrograde procedure, but is a means of tuning your mind mentally without the physical trappings. Mentally light your candlesticks; stand at your altar and draw an equal armed cross with your right hand. Pick up the water and walk round your mental temple, dipping a finger into the liquid and scattering it to the four compass points. Replace water on altar top
Say, “Behold the glory of the radiance. May Light in extremis shine forth from this temple in my mind and exteriorise into my world on earth.” Draw another equal armed cross and imagine it flowing downwards from your mental temple to fill your whole physical body space. Following this feel your mental temple also expanding, so that although you know it is within your mind that your psyche is carrying out your magical service, you are changing dimensions and extending your area of awareness.
Now, perform the following blessing and prayer. “Hail to the realms of glory. May both my physical being and my spiritual essence be uplifted, by the downflow of spiritual power.” Mentally pick up one of the candles from the altar and gesture towards each cardinal point. Say. “Glory and blessing from the entire world in which I live. May these thoughts merge and encompass those from the far reaching world of unknown dimensions of which I seek to learn. May my body be a vehicle for the absorption of spiritual essence and learning.”
Again draw an equal armed cross in your mind, and perhaps, if you feel it of assistance, let your hand trace the same in your physical world. Concluded by saying. “May the glory and creation of spiritual learning grace my mind with wisdom and understanding.”
Close your temple with a small prayer of thanks. Imagine the candles in your mental abode going out as you finish your ceremony. Pause now and let the exterior temple condense into your mental domain. Then slowly return your mind to the real world that surrounds you.
This exercise may be extended as far as you wish or are able. If necessary, experiment with other ceremonies you have experienced and perform them also in your mental temple or interior magical circle.
A NEW DIMENSION OF MAGICAL WORKING added to site November 2016
A new variation in the processing of ritual events has now been initiated. Firstly it should be remembered that these do not have to be conducted in a magical temple. The alternative is to use a quiet room that usually serves for other purposes. Please keep in mind that barriers between the dimensional regions have become much less formal now.
The purpose of ritual ceremonies now is to establish communications rather than to bring into your level of existence the different planetary, angelic and divine force fields with which Ritual Magic used to function.
Always start your proceedings by being still, mentally and physically. Sit comfortably, or if you really feel at ease standing, then do so but have a chair near by.
Have a notepad and pen with you. If you wish to have a few ritual impediments at your side, do so. In fact the essence of present communications is casual, using whatever items you feel will sensitise or stimulate your inner being.
Firstly visualise a cross and orb, golden in colour and as large and powerful as you are able. Now imagine your thoughts to be arrow like and flowing through the centre of the orb as far as you can into starry space. Imagine a response by a diamond like radiance slowly coming back towards you and hovering in your magical area. Spend a while holding this image and feel yourself able to communicate with Time and Space forces through this medium. Ask any questions you wish, either spiritual or earthly. Spend time in thought and meditation and then reverse the process after thanking the powers that be and expressing a concluding prayer.
Alternatively, you may mentally like to involve sections of ritual with which you are confident. Examples may be found on this website, in 'Ritual Magic in the 21st Century' or other books with which you have an acquaintance from previous experience. Your concluding statements in this instance will be slightly more formal, but should still finish with a prayer or a simple thank you.
TO FORM CONTACTS WITH THE BLUE SCEPTRE WORLD 13.09.2017
Either relax in a chair away from daily activities or enter your magical temple. Say, “Glory to the Majesty of Power and Radiance.” If in your temple, bow to the East and draw an equal armed cross in the air before you. Sitting in your chair, close your eyes and perform the actions mentally with your eyes closed. Other actions will be performed in a similar manner.
The following details give the temple version.
On the top point of the cross you have formed draw a circle with an outstretched finger. Visualise this in glowing gold colour. Stare through this circle and project your consciousness forward into space. Around you are planets and stars, their lights glowing brightly as you observe them. Pick one of these and see it increase in size. Extend your arms into a large cross. Stand awhile and concentrate on the star you have focussed on. Now bend your lower arms upwards into a cup shape. Say. “May the radiance of glory flow into my being with truth and wisdom.” Inhale deeply and image a force field emanating from your star and slowly filling your cup with flashes of blue and gold radiance. Let this sink down into your body, charging your spiritual being with energy and vitality. After a while lower your arms and mentally salute the forces you have called. Finally repeat your opening mantra, “Glory to the Majesty of Power and Radiance.” Then relax and maybe record any inspiration you receive.
