Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law,
I am experimenting with SIRP (Supreme Invoking Ritual of The Pentagram) as described in Kraigs "Modern Magick" ..
My question is:
When using the ritual to invoke a single element, I use the active or passive spirit-pentagram first with the appropriate enochian spirit-name and then the hebrew god-name, then I use the invoking-pentagram of the element in question with the appropriate enochian vibrations. I do this in all the quarters.
When I get to the part where I affirm the presence of the archangels (before me Raphael, behind me Gabriel etc.), have I not really evoked Raphael (if I am working with air) in all the quarters? Should I not rather affirm the presence of Raphael (if working with air) in all the quarters ("Before me Raphael, behind me Raphael" etc.), or is there a good reason to stick to the "balanced" configuration of archangels, even if I am working with only one element?
I cannot find anything about this in the descriptions in Kraigs book or through google, so I am hoping to hear other viewpoints, experiences and practices on this point.
Thanks in advance,
Love is the law, love under will.
