SUGGESTIONS TO GET STARTED

This Home Page is divided into four main sections plus the suggestions at the beginning:

  1. Rituals we use and one optional ritual

  2. Lessons to help you get started

  3. Optional Lessons for those who are interested

  4. Initiation and More Lessons

As you prepare for your initiation into The Magical Golden Dawn, we offer you these suggestions:

  1. Read through the material on this page from the beginning to the end without following any links.
  2. If you decide this is something you want to incorporate into your own spiritual practices, then follow the links you want to follow.
  3. Study what appeals to you and the things you'd like to learn more about.
  4. Do not waste your time studying something you do not want to learn at this time.
  5. Focus on your initiation and the things you want to learn.

In our experience, trying to learn something that does not appeal to you is a complete waste of your time and energy. True, some things are more difficult to learn than others. Our suggestion when you find something difficult to learn is to start asking questions.

Somebody had the same issue and was able to find an easier way. We have a discussion group where you an ask these kinds of questions. If that might embarrass you, we suggest you obtain a free email service from a service like Myway, Gmail or Hotmail and use a creative name instead of your own name.

1. RITUALS

The rituals of the Magical Golden Dawn are easy to learn and master. They are also very effective in accomplishing their intended purpose. The unique method of the Magical Golden Dawn is to encourage each and every member to change and adapt our rituals to create your own unique way of doing things based on who you are, your knowledge and experience and your own intuitive insights. Learn to create and use your own rituals. They will be more powerful than anything we force you to learn.

Keep it simple. The more complicated you make it, the harder it is to remember. If it feels complicated to you, find an easier, simpler way to do it. Ask for suggestions from others following this path. You can make it easy for yourself, or you can make it hard on yourself. The choice is yours. In our experience easier actually works better.

THE FIRST RITUAL - BANISHING AND INVOKING RITUALS

The Banishing and Invoking Ritual for Air, Water, Fire and Earth Elementals plus Invoking Spirit rituals are the basic rituals of The Magical Golden Dawn. They are used as a foundation for many other rituals. As with all things we teach, students are encouraged to simplify this ritual according to their own knowledge, proclivities, experience and wishes.

THE SECOND RITUAL - THE ELEMENTAL CROSS

The second ritual is as old as recorded history. The Elemental Cross, or any of its variations by various names, is an intrinsic part of the Sphere of Protection. There are two primary variations. Candidates may use either one or any variation of their choice.

The Elemental Cross

The Kabalistic Cross

THE THIRD RITUAL - THE SPHERE OF PROTECTION

The Sphere of Protection and the Sphere of Protection Against Psychic Attack are used to protect the magician while he or she travels the inner planes as well as during day to day activities in this mundane life. This ritual is recommended prior to any and all magical rituals and initiations. The previous two rituals are an intrinsic part of the Sphere of Protection and should first be practiced until they can be performed effortlessly.

Protection Against Psychic Attack

THE FOURTH RITUAL - LESSER BANISHING RITUAL OF THE PENTAGRAM

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP) was made popular by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This ritual is widely practiced by magicians. While it is not part of the ritual regimen of The Magical Golden Dawn,we feel students should become familiar with the LBRP and then decide to use it or the Invoking and Banishing Ritual of the Magical Golden Dawn in their spiritual practices.

Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram - This ritual is optional, but well worth knowing.
