Thursday: Performed morning rite on beach, and it was great. Uplifting, energizing, and expansive. The sun is like the physical manifestation of the Logos, when it rises at dawn you can actually feel the logos arising within your heart. Invoking the powers of the planet of the hour, is just so fucking gorgeous its indescribable The sunlight on the water is like a bridge between you and the macrocosm. Seeing Tzadkiel over the waters like a 100 foot giant just… blows me away. My intent was to repeat the rite at night in the third hour but I was overtaken by an almost unnatural tiredness and went to bed at 8am. I became Lucid in the dream and performed it in my astral temple to the best of my memory. This was more conversational and held a warning about a business venture that I have been considering.
Friday: Anael was performed in the AM as well but not on the beach. Anael came right out and asked me what I was looking for, I replied that I wanted a closer bond with my family. The angel simply smiled, and said that can be arranged… Sometimes angels have a sense of sarcastic humor.
Saturday: I did not perform this in the AM as it was a family day top to bottom and we had a lot to do. I did a shortened version in the afternoon and did not so much communicate with Tzaphkiel as much as feel him watching. That afternoon my wife and I fought HARD over an organizational issue, and I managed to cut through the usual pattern of back and forth to see what changes were necessary on my end. She coppied to being wrong about the event that sparked the argument, but the underlying issue was really more important. The whole event helped spur me on to a new personal project that will help things run smoother and also brought my wife and I closer as Anael promised. Of course the family was about to spend a lot more time together…
Sunday: I performed the rites of the Sun in the second hour. The light of Shekhina flooded the temple to the point where I could barely see the altar. In the crystal Michael appeared to tower above my neighborhood and had his sword planted firmly in the ground. I closed my eyes and could feel his presence around me. I felt compelled to follow this evocation with a ritual invoking Michael as the head of all choirs of angels for protection. Frankenstorm was going to hit town in just a few hours…
Monday: Performed the rite in the morning, and had a vision of Gabriel telling Mary she was pregnant. I followed up this rite with an offering an prayer to the Lady of Prompt Succor, who is traditionally invoked against hurricanes in New orleans. Planned to do invoke Gabriel again that evening . I would love to say that I performed it in the third hour, as the storm hit, during the full moon. BUT, I had kids and a wife to comfort, and a strong desire to meditate in the dark ( we lost power) which I went ahead with. I should note that I lost power earlier that day and did a prayer and mantras to Rahula (Dharma protector that manifests as planetary demon called a Dza, which also influences electricity) and power came right back. It went out again around 8pm or so and stayed off until early this morning. Not sure how this is relevant, but I mention it here anyway.
Tuesday: Rite performed outside, while I was in the eye of the Hurricane and the weather was relatively calm. There was no seal or table for this one as the strom re-arranged some things where I had all the equipment.. I used only what script I could remember and traced the seal in the air with a wand. Khammael came through STRONG. REALLY STRONG. He taught me an important lesson about a warriors calm. How confidence stems from competence. It was the very best Martial lesson I have ever gotten working with the planet. I set some buckets out to collect rain water for war water.
Wednesday: I woke up to power! Still lots of things closed, and no day-care for kids, but at least I could catch up on News without sitting in my car. Performed Mercury in the third hour and he has given me further insight nto how to further arrange the organizational changes that Saturn spark.
