In this text we present another method of healing/cleansing magic with the aid of the powers connected to the Hamadryadic Armour Sigil. This approach is rooted in traditional trolldom/svartkonst methods and knot magic, here utilized and ”usurped” in the light of Qayinite Gnosis.
The goal in this particular case is related to healing and cleansing as already mentioned but the same method can, with a few alterations, be used also for other ends, even malefic ones.
The following elements are needed for the work:
– The Hamadryadic Armour Sigil painted or drawn with chalk, large enough to sit upon.
– An urn, vase or other container holding the eight black in green elements connected to the sigil (see Liber Falxifer 2)
– Two wooden matches with removed ”heads”. Cleansed and dedicated before the work.
– Black sewing thread or wool thread in suitable length, for example 49 cm
– A suitable incense blend (for example the one related to the Key Sigil of Protection)
– One cigar
– Eight white candles for the activation of the sigil
– Traditional offerings for the black in green
The work is initiated in traditional manner by the opening of the altar and the giving of offerings to the Master, explaining the purpose of the work at hand.
Place the eight white candles upon the eight ”tridents” of the Hamadryadic Armour sigil cloth. Knock three times upon the sigil and give offerings of libation, tobacco and incense and light the eight candles, then take seat upon the sigil and call upon the spirits connected to the sigil and ask for their blessings upon the work.
Pick up the black thread and, holding it in your left hand, ask again the spirits of the black in green to strengthen the power that you are about to ”read into” it.
Focus fully on the intention of the work and let your will be channeled and established through your voice while saying ”My aim is to heal and cleanse N.N. from the negative influences afflicting him/her. I bind with power and in the name of Master Qayin.” and tie a knot at the same time.
Repeat this process eight more times so that you end up with nine knots on the thread, with some space between them.
It must be underlined that your own focus is very important in this process of course (just like it is in any other kind of real and potent magic) and you must visualize how your magical will is manifested and ”locked” into the thread with by the nine knots.
Put the thread in front of you and place the two matches close to it, in the form of an X, cross your arms (the left one on top of the right) and do the traditional salute towards it.
Hold the matches in the form of an X and start binding the thread around the its’ middle part vertically nine times while repeating the intense focus and the same phrase used while tying the knots earlier.
After the nine vertical rounds, continue and do the same process nine times horizontally. When done, tie another nine knots on top of each while repeating the same phrase again after each knot.
What you now have is a wooden cross, that is to be placed in the centre of the Hamdryadic Armour Sigil with the wooden matches aligned with the cardinal lines/directions of the sigil. Visualize how the amulet you are creating is drawing power from each ”arm”of the eight-armed Hamadryadic Armour Sigil, combining the powers of + (symbolized by the wooden matches) and X (symbolized by the thread) and pray to the forces connected to the sigil to imbue it with their virtues relevant for the work.
At this point two options are possible. Either you let the cross remain upon the sigil overnight until the candles have been consumed, and use it at a later point.
The other alternative is to use it right away. In that case, knock three times on the urn and remove its’ lid. Light the cigar in the name of Amiahzatan and direct your will through the fiery breath to the spirits of the sigil, by blowing tobacco smoke into the urn and holding the cross above the opening (in the returning rising smoke that has by then come into contact with the elements inside of the urn).
Repeat this process nine times before and then use the charged cross amulet, by allowing it to come into contact with the person to become cleansed through it, while focusing on and visualizing how the negative energies are drawn out from his/her body to become ”bound” within the cross instead. (Here is why the colour black was chosen for the thread, the reason being that black absorbs. Other colours can be used for other intentions of course.)
Immediately after this has been done, the cross should be taken outdoors and buried at a place of power (for example in front of a suitable tree), and the spirits of the place are asked to neutralize or send away the negative energies bound within it.
Give traditional offerings for the spirits of the place, do the Qayinite salute and take three steps back before turning around and leaving the place without looking back.
