Cleansing Rite of the Ankh

Cleansing Rite of the Ankh

Diurnal Version:

Face the South. Close your eyes. Raise your dominant (right) hand outwards and upwards above your head. Make your body as tense as possible, hold this tension for a count of ten, then with a deep exhale, relax. Reach out to the sun above. Visualize your hand touching the sun above, your fingers sinking into the fiery globe of light that sustains us all with its warmth and light – the source of all life. As you touch the Sun, vibrate the name: “Ra.” Feel the golden light of the sun shining down upon you, feel it fill your aura and draw the sunlight deep into your body. It may be helpful to visualize drawing the light further in on each intake of breath. As you pull down the light, lower your upraised arm. As your hand passes in front of your solar plexus, vibrate the name: “Hoor/Horus.” Continue drawing the sunlight down through your body and aura and into the Earth below. As your hand reaches the lowest you can reach, either around your knees or actually touching the ground/floor, vibrate the name: “Geb.” Pause. Reach down as far into the Earth as you can and draw another current of energy upwards from the depths below. Atonal humming works well at this point, if you can sustain it for a moderate length of time. Draw the Earth energy upwards through your body and aura to your throat, then make a vertical loop around your head, returning back to your throat/shoulder-level. Extend your hand first out to the left, then back and to the right. Visualize the flaming ankh within your aura shining brilliantly as you are a conduit for both solar and terrestrial energy. Clasp both hands over your chest in the “Osiris Risen” posture and then vibrate the name: “Hadit.” Proceed with whatever you were about to do, the rite is complete.

Nocturnal Version:

Face the South. Close your eyes. Raise your passive (left) hand outwards and upwards above your head. Reach out to the stars in the night sky. Visualize, then feel a swirling vortex of light overhead. Pull this sparkling swarm of motes of light downwards like a shower of stars that cascades through your aura, through your body, and downwards into the Earth below. Vibrate the name: “Nuit.” Feel the silvery light of the moon shining down upon you, feel it fill your aura and draw the moonlight deep into your body. It may be helpful to visualize drawing the silvery light further in on each intake of breath. As you pull down the light, lower your upraised arm. As your hand passes in front of your heart center, vibrate the name: “Kephera” Continue drawing the moonlight down through your body and aura and into the Earth below. As your hand reaches the lowest you can reach, either around your knees or actually touching the ground/floor, vibrate the name: “Geb.” Pause. Reach down as far into the Earth as you can and draw another current of energy upwards from the depths below. Atonal humming works well at this point, if you can sustain it for a moderate length of time. Draw the Earth energy upwards through your body and aura to your throat, then make a vertical loop around your head, returning back to your throat/shoulder-level. Extend your hand first out to the left, then back and to the right. Visualize the flaming ankh within your aura shining brilliantly as you are a conduit for both lunar and terrestrial energy. Clasp both hands over your chest in the “Osiris Risen” posture and then vibrate the name: “Hadit.” Proceed with whatever you were about to do, the rite is complete.
