Vibration of God Names

Postby Gnosomai Emauton » Mon Dec 26, 2016 1:47 am

In Chapter 9 of The Tree of Life, Regardie gives instructions in the vibration of God-names, using the example of Elohim Gibor, that pretty closely matches the instructions of Liber O. However, at the end of the instruction, he notes that using the Sign of the Enterer, a characteristic pose of Horus, is done because Elohim Gibor is the God-name of Geburah. "Other gestures and other signs exist for each of the Gods, and a study of the Egyptian God-forms will confer a knowledge of what these signs are."

Is this one of those places where Liber O fails us by being teaching notes rather than a complete text? Should the Sign of the Enterer only be used for Martial vibrations?

No, I think one shouldn't tie these quote together too closely or take Regardie too rigorously here, I read it either as a bad example or, more likely, a statement in the fashion of, "There are many ways one can go about things and, since I'm doing a Mars thing here, I'm going to pick the easy and familiar method which also happens to be especially martial." (But I'm not rereading him in context.)

To answer your specific historic question: No, the Vibration of Divine Names by the Formula of the Middle Pillar (the full name of the technique Liber O teaches) was recommended for all (maybe I should say "any") Divine Names.

PS - Regardie's instructions cited above arguably can be classified as Old Aeon or Aeon-transitional instructions. In the New Aeon, Horus is everywhere!
