I would like to open a discussion regarding the concept of an Adept and its required preparation in an esoteric school settings like the Rosicrucian orders, not only AMORC but other Rosicrucian schools or orders as well.
Which Forces & Energies?
But the bottom line is that we're messing with things not knowing their forces and effects. Did Eliphas Levi (who invented the ritual of banishment of the Pentagram ) know what really occurs when we use a geometric figure like the Pentagram in the rituals? Which energies are put into motion? Is the Pentagram a portal for the elemental realm? What happens when we project the divine names in the centre of the Pentagram? When we're invoking using the Pentagram what comes back through it to us? Griffin's Ritual Magic Manual tells us that the energies invoked reflow energising the aura of the practitioner.
But how can this be proved?
I see myself as a Rosicrucian researcher, and I cannot accept things just because others accept and do. The Rosicrucian is an researcher of the Cosmic Laws and only through the deep understanding of these laws that the student can apply them to their evolution. Otherwise is just another belief, another illusion.
- Can be used in banishing rituals, or rituals used to clear energies in the environment exterior of our aura and in our own aura. In that case the Pentagrams are traced starting from the elemental Earth.
- Also Pentagrams are mostly used for invocations or attracting specific energies into the magic circle and into the Practitioner's sphere of sensation or aura.
I may have a suggestion to proof the energy dealings of magic. We need the participation of a very skilled clairvoyant witnessing an experienced magician practitioner in a controlled experiment environment. I think this is possible because I involuntarily participated in a experiment which gave similar results. I was being part of a group healing forming a group circle. As someone decided to resource to descarnated spirits to help the process, I decided to try something. As I usually did as a protection, I traced a large circle of Light around the group to block any outside interference using the Lost Word as a mantra. When the session came to an end I decided to ask if anyone noticed anything unusual happening in the room. One young man in the group, very gifted clairvoyant, immediately start to told us that at certain point of the session he started to see a bright circle of Light around us and no entities came into manifestation that time.
