Additional Guidance

Between each line of this prayer, take three deep breaths as you invoke the Angels of the Five Elements.

There are optional movements you can perform at the same time to enhance this practice.

  • You begin with the arms open at your sides and gradually form a great arc as you reach up to the sky as you invoke the Angels of Earth, Water, and Air.
  • Your palms come together above your head just as you summon the Angel of Fire, and as you sanctify your spirit, your palms come down to rest in prayer position over your heart.
  • Finally, as you summon the Angel of Ether, your hands come to rest face down on your belly.
