Activities: Consecration of Solomonic Holy Water, Consecration of the Bottle of Art, Consecration of Solomonic Holy Oil, Consecration of Solomonic Pens of the Art, and Consecration of a Solomonic Light of the Art, all following Key of Solomon methodologies
I woke up, did a ritual bathing according to the Sufi ghusl formula, and then exorcised and consecrated Solomonic Holy Water in the first Hour of Mercury on the Day of Mercury before placing it in a consecrated bottle wrapped in consecrated linen, all prepared according to the Key of Solomon’s instructions.
I then finished the Hebrew lettering and Medieval calligraphy on my Solomonic Circle:
In the second Hour of Mercury, in the afternoon, I consecrated Solomonic Holy Oil. My method here is a combination of Frater Asterion’s, Key of Solomon formulae, and ideas from the Heptameron and Book of Raziel:
CONSECRATION OF THE BOTTLE OF THE ART IN WHICH THOU WILT PLACE THE OIL
First, have handy the consecrated Holy Water and Odoriferous Spices (Incense). Take the Bottle of Art to be used and suffumigate it and sprinkle it with Holy Water.
I exorcise thee, O Spirit impure and unclean, thou who art a hostile Phantom, in the Name of God, that thou quit this Bottle, thou and all thy deceits, that they may be consecrated and sanctified in the name of God Almighty. May the Holy Spirit of God grant protection and virtue unto those who use this Bottle of Art; and may the hostile and evil Spirit and Phantom never be able to enter therein, through the Ineffable Name of God Almighty. Instead, may the Holy Spirit of Adonai use this Creatures of Bottles to add Divine Potency and Holiness to all that all Creatures of Oil, Water, or other Holy Substances Placed Therein. Amen.
Bless and sprinkle with Water, Oil, and Suffumigate with Incense saying the following conjuration three times:
Hamiel, hel, miel, ciel, joviel, Nasnia, magde Tetragrammaton. O powerful God, grant the prayers of those who invoke you, and bless these small vials prepared in your honor, through all your works. Amen.
CONSECRATION OF SOLOMONIC HOLY OIL
Have on hand the consecrated Bottle, Holy Water, and Odoriferous Spices (Incense) as well as a consecrated Silk or Linen in which to wrap the Bottle of consecrated Oil.
Suffumigate the oil, sprinkle holy water on it and say:
I exorcise thee, O Creature of Oil, by Him Who hath created the plants by which thou wast made, that thou doth empower and infuse with the Blessing of the Most High and render Holy and Hallowed all that thou annointeth, and that thou uncover all the deceits of the Enemy, and that thou cast out from thee all the impurities and uncleannesses of the Spirits of the World of Phantasm, so they may harm me not, through the virtue of God Almighty Who liveth and reigneth unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen.
Say the 7 Penitential Psalms: 6, 31, 37, 50, 101, 129, 142:
O YHVH, do not punish me in your anger or discipline me in your rage. 2 Have pity on me, O YHVH, because I am weak. Heal me, O YHVH, because my bones shake with terror. 3 My soul has been deeply shaken with terror. But you, O YHVH, how long . . . ?
4 Come back, O YHVH. Rescue me. Save me because of your mercy! 5 In death, no one remembers you. In the grave, who praises you?
6 I am worn out from my groaning. My eyes flood my bed every night. I soak my couch with tears. 7 My eyes blur from grief. They fail because of my enemies.
8 Get away from me, all you troublemakers, because YHVH has heard the sound of my crying. 9 YHVH has heard my plea for mercy. YHVH accepts my prayer. 10 All my enemies will be put to shame and deeply shaken with terror. In a moment they will retreat and be put to shame.
I have taken refuge in you, O YHVH. Never let me be put to shame. Save me because of your righteousness. 2 Turn your ear toward me. Rescue me quickly. Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong Metsuda to save me. 3 Indeed, you are my rock and my Metsuda. For the sake of your name, lead me and guide me. 4 You are my refuge, so pull me out of the net that they have secretly laid for me. 5 Into your hands I entrust my spirit. You have rescued me, O YHVH, El of truth.
6 I hate those who cling to false gods, but I trust YHVH. 7 I will rejoice and be glad because of your mercy. You have seen my misery. You have known the troubles in my soul. 8 You have not handed me over to the enemy. You have set my feet in a place where I can move freely.
9 Have pity on me, O YHVH, because I am in distress. My eyes, my soul, and my body waste away from grief. 10 My life is exhausted from sorrow, my years from groaning. My strength staggers under the weight of my guilt, and my bones waste away. 11 I have become a disgrace because of all my opponents. I have become someone dreaded by my friends, even by my neighbors. Those who see me on the street run away from me. 12 I have faded from memory as if I were dead and have become like a piece of broken pottery. 13 I have heard the whispering of many people— terror on every side— while they made plans together against me. They were plotting to take my life.
14 I trust you, O YHVH. I said, “You are my Elohim.”
15 My future is in your hands. Rescue me from my enemies, from those who persecute me. 16 Smile on me. Save me with your mercy. 17 O YHVH, I have called on you, so do not let me be put to shame. Let wicked people be put to shame. Let them be silent in the grave. 18 Let their lying lips be speechless, since they speak against righteous people with arrogance and contempt.
19 Your kindness is so great! You reserve it for those who fear you. Adam’s descendants watch as you show it to those who take refuge in you. 20 You hide them in the secret place of your presence from those who scheme against them. You keep them in a shelter, safe from quarrelsome tongues. 21 Thank YHVH! He has shown me the miracle of his mercy in a city under attack. 22 When I was panic-stricken, I said, “I have been cut off from your sight.” But you heard my pleas for mercy when I cried out to you for help. 23 Love YHVH, all you godly ones! YHVH protects faithful people, but he pays back in full those who act arrogantly. 24 Be strong, all who wait with hope for YHVH, and let your heart be courageous.
1 Do not be preoccupied with evildoers. Do not envy those who do wicked things. 2 They will quickly dry up like grass and wither away like green plants. 3 Trust YHVH, and do good things. Live in the land, and practice being faithful. 4 Be happy with YHVH, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Entrust your ways to YHVH. Trust him, and he will act on your behalf. 6 He will make your righteousness shine like a light, your just cause like the noonday sun. 7 Surrender yourself to YHVH, and wait patiently for him. Do not be preoccupied with an evildoer who succeeds in his way when he carries out his schemes. 8 Let go of anger, and leave rage behind. Do not be preoccupied. It only leads to evil. 9 Evildoers will be cut off from their inheritance, but those who wait with hope for YHVH will inherit the land.
10 In a little while a wicked person will vanish. Then you can carefully examine where he was, but there will be no trace of him. 11 Oppressed people will inherit the land and will enjoy unlimited peace. 12 The wicked person plots against a righteous one and grits his teeth at him. 13 Adonay laughs at him because he has seen that his time is coming. 14 Wicked people pull out their swords and bend their bows to kill oppressed and needy people, to slaughter those who are decent. 15 But their own swords will pierce their hearts, and their bows will be broken. 16 The little that the righteous person has is better than the wealth of many wicked people. 17 The arms of wicked people will be broken, but YHVH continues to support righteous people. 18 YHVH knows the daily struggles of innocent people. Their inheritance will last forever. 19 They will not be put to shame in trying times. Even in times of famine they will be satisfied. 20 But wicked people will disappear. YHVH’s enemies will vanish like the best part of a meadow. They will vanish like smoke. 21 A wicked person borrows, but he does not repay. A righteous person is generous and giving. 22 Those who are blessed by him will inherit the land. Those who are cursed by him will be cut off.
23 A person’s steps are directed by YHVH, and YHVH delights in his way. 24 When he falls, he will not be thrown down headfirst because YHVH holds on to his hand. 25 I have been young, and now I am old, but I have never seen a righteous person abandoned or his descendants begging for food. 26 He is always generous and lends freely. His descendants are a blessing. 27 Avoid evil, do good, and live forever. 28 YHVH loves justice, and he will not abandon his godly ones. They will be kept safe forever, but the descendants of wicked people will be cut off. 29 Righteous people will inherit the land and live there permanently. 30 The mouth of the righteous person reflects on wisdom. His tongue speaks what is fair. 31 The teachings of his Elohim are in his heart. His feet do not slip. 32 The wicked person watches the righteous person and seeks to kill him. 33 But YHVH will not abandon him to the wicked person’s power or condemn him when he is brought to trial. 34 Wait with hope for YHVH, and follow his path, and he will honor you by giving you the land. When wicked people are cut off, you will see it.
35 I have seen a wicked person acting like a tyrant, spreading himself out like a large cedar tree. 36 But he moved on, and now there is no trace of him. I searched for him, but he could not be found. 37 Notice the innocent person, and look at the decent person, because the peacemaker has a future. 38 But rebels will be completely destroyed. The future of wicked people will be cut off. 39 The victory for righteous people comes from YHVH. He is their fortress in times of trouble. 40 YHVH helps them and rescues them. He rescues them from wicked people. He saves them because they have taken refuge in him.
YHVH, the only true El, has spoken. He has summoned the earth from where the sun rises to where it sets. 2 Elohim shines from Zion, the perfection of beauty. 3 Our Elohim will come and will not remain silent. A devouring fire is in front of him and a raging storm around him. 4 He summons heaven and earth to judge his people: 5 “Gather around me, my godly people who have made a pledge to me through sacrifices.”
6 The heavens announce his righteousness because Elohim is the Shophet. Selah
7 “Listen, my people, and I will speak. Listen, Israel, and I will testify against you: I am Elohim, your Elohim! 8 I am not criticizing you for your sacrifices or burnt offerings, which are always in front of me. 9 But I will not accept another young bull from your household or a single male goat from your pens. 10 Every creature in the forest, even the cattle on a thousand hills, is mine. 11 I know every bird in the mountains. Everything that moves in the fields is mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, because the world and all that it contains are mine. 13 Do I eat the meat of bulls or drink the blood of goats? 14 Bring your thanks to Elohim as a sacrifice, and keep your vows to Elyon. 15 Call on me in times of trouble. I will rescue you, and you will honor me.”
16 But Elohim says to wicked people, “How dare you quote my decrees and mouth my promises!17 You hate discipline. You toss my words behind you. 18 When you see a thief, you want to make friends with him. You keep company with people who commit adultery. 19 You let your mouth say anything evil. Your tongue plans deceit. 20 You sit and talk against your own brother. You slander your own mother’s son. 21 When you did these things, I remained silent. That made you think I was like you. I will argue my point with you and lay it all out for you to see. 22 Consider this, you people who forget Eloah. Otherwise, I will tear you to pieces, and there will be no one left to rescue you. 23 Whoever offers thanks as a sacrifice honors me. I will let everyone who continues in my way see the salvation that comes from Elohim.”
1 I will sing about mercy and justice. O YHVH, I will make music to praise you. 2 I want to understand the path to integrity. When will you come to me?
I will live in my own home with integrity. 3 I will not put anything wicked in front of my eyes. I hate what unfaithful people do. I want no part of it. 4 I will keep far away from devious minds. I will have nothing to do with evil. 5 I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor. I will not tolerate anyone with a conceited look or arrogant heart. 6 My eyes will be watching the faithful people in the land so that they may live with me. The person who lives with integrity will serve me.
7 The one who does deceitful things will not stay in my home. The one who tells lies will not remain in my presence.
8 Every morning I will destroy all the wicked people in the land to rid YHVH’s city of all troublemakers.
“From the time I was young, people have attacked me . . .” (Israel should repeat this.)2 “From the time I was young, people have attacked me, but they have never overpowered me. 3 They have plowed my back like farmers plow fields. They made long slashes like furrows.” 4 YHVH is righteous. He has cut me loose from the ropes that wicked people tied around me. 5 Put to shame all those who hate Zion. Force them to retreat. 6 Make them be like grass on a roof, like grass that dries up before it produces a stalk. 7 It will never fill the barns of those who harvest or the arms of those who gather bundles. 8 Those who pass by will never say to them, “May you be blessed by YHVH” or “We bless you in the name of YHVH.”
Loudly, I cry to YHVH. Loudly, I plead with YHVH for mercy. 2 I pour out my complaints in his presence and tell him my troubles. 3 When I begin to lose hope, you already know what I am experiencing.
My enemies have hidden a trap for me on the path where I walk. 4 Look to my right and see that no one notices me. Escape is impossible for me. No one cares about me.
5 I call out to you, O YHVH. I say, “You are my Machseh, my own inheritance in this world of the living.” 6 Pay attention to my cry for help because I am very weak. Rescue me from those who pursue me because they are too strong for me. 7 Release my soul from prison so that I may give thanks to your name. Righteous people will surround me because you are good to me.
Kindle the coal or light some consecrated Frankincense. Take the Book, or printed text, in the left hand and the vessel or bottle of Oil in the right, and hold it in the smoke of the Incense, saying the following conjuration 3 times:
O God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, put thy blessing upon this creature of oil, that it may fill up the power and virtue of its substance, so that neither the enemy, nor any false imagination may be able to enter it, and grant it the power of seeing the spirits of heaven, earth and hell once I anoint mine eyes with it and to hear and understand them once I anoint mine temples with it, in thy great name Adonai Tetragrammaton and through the power of our Lord! May whatsoever it anoints be made Holy and empowered with Thy Blessing! Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. Amen.
It is done.
Thereafter, I consecrated the Pens of the Art (permanent markers and chalk markers in this case), which I will use for drawing sigils and characters according to the following take on the Key of Solomon’s instructions for the Ink:
CONSECRATION OF THE PENS OR MARKERS OF THE ART
Light Incense of Art. Sprinkle the markers with Holy Water, anoint with Holy Oil, suffumigate with the Incense and say:
I exorcise thee, O Creature of Ink, by ANAIRETON, by SIMULATOR, and by the Name ADONAI, and by the Name of Him through Whom all things were made, that thou be unto me an aid and succor in all things which I wish to perform by thine aid.
Pray the following 3 times:
ADRAI, HAHLII, TAMAII, TILONAS, ATHAMAS, ZIANOR, ADONAI, banish from these pens all deceit and error, so that it may be of virtue and efficacy to write all that I desire. Amen.
Cense with the Incense and say:
ASOPHIEL, ASOPHIEL, ASOPHIEL, PENTAGRAMMATON, ATHANATOS, EHEIEH ASHER EHEIEH, QADOSCH, QADOSCH, QADOSCH; O God Eternal, and my Father, bless this Instrument prepared in Thine honour, so that it may only serve for a good use and end, for Thy Glory. Through thy power, let whatever operations in which it is used come to fruition and great success, for the Power and Glory are yours alone, now and forever. Amen.
I also consecrated my own invention, the Lighter of the Art. As this post is getting rather long, I will save that method for a future post.
Continue to the Consecration Ritual for a Solomonic Lighter of the Art for that post.
