Liber Theta: Meditation On The Minor Arcana Instructions

Postby Al-Shariyf » Mon Nov 28, 2011 8:27 am

Meditation on the 40 Minor Arcana should follow meditation on the 22 Major Arcana, because the Trumps are the basis for the composition of the 40 smaller cards.

The method of meditation is essentially the same as for the Major Arcana, except there is no meditation color assigned. Instead:

1. Pause to establish a sphere of white light above the crown of your head and recognize that it is this source that shall guide you in your understanding of the Mystery on which you are meditating.

2. Remind yourself of which Sephirah, and which Element or World, corresponds to the selected card.

3. Each card has a Meditation Pattern listed. Set out the cards for the meditation according to these instructions, and then proceed as with the Major Arcana.

4. When finished, complete the magical record entry as you see fit.

If you meditate on these cards three days for each, you will complete the entire set in 20 weeks. If you devote an entire week to each, you will finish this phase in 40 weeks.

Your understanding of these 40 cards will be the basis of your understanding the 16 Court Cards that follow.

After completing these 40 meditations, you are advised to continue the same meditative approach with the 16 Court Cards, using the Meditation Pattern listed for each.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
This admin post is added so that the above post no longer appears under View Unanswered Posts. This is not an actual answer.

Posts that remain unanswered clog the forum and make View Unanswered unusable. Therefore, when nobody answers a post for a time, this present response is added to force it off the View Unanswered list. An inferior alternative would be to delete the unanswered post.

This statement is included because such admin postings sometimes cause confusion.

Love is the law, love under will.
