(Based on Crowley's Liber Resh vel Helios)
At Sunrise (or when you awaken). Face the East, make the sign of the Enterer (this was given in the LBRP), then stand upright with your irms up as if you were supporting a heavy pole above your head (see figure below). In a loud voice (if possible; if not, then silently) pray:
"Hail unto Thee who art Ra in Thy rising, even unto Thee who art Ra in Thy strength. Who travel-est over the heavens in Thy bark at the uprising of the Sun. Tahuti standeth in his splendor at the prow, and Ra-Hoor abideth at the helm. Hail unto Thee from the abodes of the night."
Finally, stamp on the ground one time with your left foot and bring your left forefinger to your lips as if telling someone to be quiet. In fact, this it known as the Sign of Silence or the Sign of Horus.
Tahuti is the Egyptian for the god commonly known as Thoth. The rest of the symbolism can be easily understood by consulting a book on Egyptian Gods.
At Noon. Face south, make the sign of the enterer. Form the Triangle of Manifestation, only hold it slightly above your head (here it represents the element of Fire as the previous position represents the element of Air.) See diagram: Say:
"Hail unto Thee who art Hathoor in Thy triumphing, even unto Thee who art Hathoor in Thy beauty, who travellest over the heavens in Thy bark at the mid-course of the Sun. Tahuti standeth in His splendor at the prow and Ra-Hoor abideth at the helm. Hail unto Thee from the abodes of the morning."
At Sunset. Face west, make the sign of the enterer. Form the triangle with your hands, only do it over your stomach with the palms toward you, the thumbs at the top and the fingers pointed down. This position or God-form represents the element of Water (see diagram). Thus you have a downward pointing triangle in front of your stomach. Say:
"Hail unto Thee who are Turn in Thy setting, even unto Thee who art Turn in Thy Joy. Who travellest over the heavens in Thy bark at the downgoing of the Sun. Tahuti standeth in His splendor at the prow and Ra-Hoor abideth at the helm. Hail unto Thee from the abodes of the day."
Make the Sign of Silence.
1. When you face east at sunrise, visualize yourself imbued with the color yellow and filled with the qualities of air: heat and moisture.
2. When you face the south at noon, visualize yourself imbued with the color red and filled with the qualities of fire: heat and dryness.
3. When you face the west at sunset, visualize yourself imbued with the color blue and filled with qualities of water: cold and moisture.
4. When you face the north at midnight, visualize yourself imbued with the colors of the fertile earth, especially greens and browns, and filled with the qualities of earth: cold and dryness.
To finish this part of the second lesson, let me reiterate that real psychic attack is very rare. One time I knew I was under psychic attack and decided to do nothing to see what would happen. The result was that I got six free books in the mail and a check for $50.
However, the sensation of being under psychic attack can be very real, so I urge you to learn the techniques of this lesson. Also, do not avoid the performance daily of the four adorations. Even if I am very ill I can spend a few seconds doing them.
