Hekas hekas estes bebeloi!

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.

SAR APHARA APHARA Eeee ABRAARM ARAPHA ARBAACH PERTA-Aaww-MaaayCH AKMaaayCH Eeee-Aaah-Aaww Oooh-Ouuu-Eeeh Eeeh-Eeee-Oooh-Ouuu Eeee-Aaah-Aaww

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

Light the candle

O Jove much-honor’d, Zeus supremely great, to thee our holy rites we consecrate,
Our pray’rs and expiations, king divine, for all things round thy head exalted shine.
The earth is thine, and mountains swelling high, the sea profound, and all within the sky.
Saturnian king, descending from above, magnanimous, commanding, sceptred Zeus;
All-parent, principle and end of all, whose pow’r almighty, shakes this earthly ball;
Ev’n Nature trembles at thy mighty nod, loud-sounding, arm’d with light’ning, thund’ring God.
Source of abundance, purifying king, O various-form’d from whom all natures spring;
Propitious hear my pray’r, give blameless health, with peace divine, and necessary wealth.

O Goddess, Earth, of Gods and men the source, endu’d with fertile, all destroying force;
All-parent, bounding, whose prolific pow’rs, produce a store of beauteous fruits and flow’rs,
All-various maid, th’ eternal world’s strong base immortal, blessed, crown’d with ev’ry grace;
From whose wide womb, as from an endless root, fruits, many-form’d, mature and grateful shoot.
Deep bosom’d, blessed, pleas’d with grassy plains, sweet to the smell, and with prolific rains.
All flow’ry dæmon, centre of the world, around thy orb, the beauteous stars are hurl’d
With rapid whirl, eternal and divine, whose frames with matchless skill and wisdom shine.
Come, blessed Goddess, listen to my pray’r, and make increase of fruits thy constant care;
With fertile Seasons in thy train, draw near, and with propitious mind thy suppliant hear.

Mother Earth, bestow your treasure on me and my household. Let all our projects be fruitful and look on me with favor, that we may be blessed with bounty and walk in balance with all of your children.

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 Gaia
I give thanks to you Zeus
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.
