Away, away be ye all negative spirits that would harm the sanctity of this rite. I call upon all helpful spirits, Deities, and ancestors: Watch over my working, opening the household so that the power of the Agathos Daimon can come forward and the ancient and shining ones be present. Protect all members of the household until the ritual is concluded.

Light incense

Come to me, you from the four winds, ruler of all, who breathed the spirit of life into all persons, whose is the hidden and unspeakable name. At whose name even the daimons, when hearing, are terrified. Of whom heaven is head, ether body, earth feet, and the environment water: the Agathos Daimon. You are the ocean, begetter of good things and feeder of the civilized world. Yours is the eternal processional way. Your seven-lettered name is established for the harmony of the seven sounds of the planets which utter their voices according to the twenty-nine forms of the moon.

Your name and your spirit rest upon the good. Come into my mind and my understanding for all the time of my life and accomplish for me all the desires of my soul. For you are I, and I, you. Whatever I say must happen, for I have your name in my heart and no flesh will overpower me; no spirit will stand against me—neither daimon, nor visitation, nor any evil being, because of your name, which I have in my soul and invoke.

  • Facing east with both hands to the left: Vibrate A (Aaah)
  • Facing north, with right fist out: Vibrate E (Eeeh)
  • Facing west extending both hands forward: Vibrate Ē (Aaay)
  • Facing south hands on stomach: Vibrate I (Eeee)
  • To the earth, hands touching toes: Vibrate O (Oooh)
  • Looking into the air, hand on heart: Vibrate Y (Ouuu)
  • To the sky, both hands on head: Vibrate Ō (Aaww)

I call on you, eternal and unbegotten, who are one, who alone hold together the whole creation of all things, whom none understand, whom the gods worship, whose name not even the gods can utter. Accomplish for me this petition.

O blessed Kronos, servant of the Agathos Daimon, you whose hand is this moment, who rules over this day, bring your light to me!

Light the candle

Etherial father, mighty Titan, hear, great fire of Gods and men, whom all revere:
Endowed with various council, pure and strong, to whom perfection and decrease belong.
Consumed by thee all forms that hourly die, by thee restored, their former place supply;
The world immense in everlasting chains, strong and ineffable thy pow’r contains . Father of vast eternity, divine, O mighty Saturn, various speech is thine:
Blossom of earth and of the starry skies, husband of Rhea, and Prometheus wife.
Obstetric Nature, venerable root, from which the various forms of being shoot;
No parts peculiar can thy power enclose, diffused thro’ all, from which the world arose,
O, best of beings, of a subtle mind, propitious hear to holy prayers inclined;
The sacred rites benevolent attend, and grant a blameless life, a blessed end.

O Powerful Nike, by men desired, with adverse breasts to dreadful fury fired,
Thee I invoke, whose might alone can quell contending rage, and molestation fell:
‘Tis thine in battle to confer the crown, the victor’s prize, the mark of sweet renown;
For thou rulest all things, Nike divine! And glorious strife, and joyful shouts are thine.
Come, mighty Goddess, and thy suppliant bless, with sparkling eye, elated with success;
May deeds illustrious thy protection claim, and find, led on by thee immortal Fame.

Courageous Nike, give me the courage to fight always for what is right and virtuous and let nothing hold me back from my path. Let me be agile in avoiding ill fortune and give me the fortitude to strive always toward my goals.

Please, Aion, ruler of hope, giver of wealth, O holy Agathos Daimon, bring to fulfillment all favors.

I have been attached to your holy form
I have been given power by your holy name
I have acquired your emanation of the goods
Lord, god of gods, master, daimon

For you are I, and I, you. Whatever I say must happen, for I have your name in my heart and no flesh will overpower me; no spirit will stand against me—neither daimon nor visitation nor any evil being, because of your name, which I have in my soul. For yours is the eternal processional way. Your seven-lettered name is established for the harmony of the seven sounds of the planets which utter their voices according to the twenty-nine forms of the moon.

I give thanks to you Nike
I give thanks to you Saturn
I give thanks to you Agathos Daimon

Go away, go away; into your own heavens, into your own palaces, into your own courses. Keep me healthy, unharmed, not plagued by evil spirits, free from calamity and without terror. Hear me during my lifetime.
