If seeking Instruction. You must perform these Rituals and record any details.
I am now limiting further students to those who perform the following in line with the Tradition and the Expression of the True Faith.
There are 7 Sisters and 7 Maidens, 12 Brothers and 2 Others…
One may Name 7 Sisters and 7 Maidens, as well as 12 Brothers and 2 Others…
But if you choose to have a Name, it will be randomly assigned.
Before you acknowledge any choice in this matter you must perform the following Strange Actions:
On an Islamic Holiday (or in communication with a Muslim, etc… just be creative) you must post something publicly on the Internet (or verbally say or write to this person) stating:
Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Eḥad
(Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord is One).
On a Christian Holiday (or in communication with a Christian, etc… just be creative) you must post something publicly on the Internet (or verbally say or write to this person) stating:
Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill Allah
(I bear witness that there is no G_d but G_d.)
Wa ash-hadu ana Muhammad ar-rasullallah
(And I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of G_d.).
On a Jewish Holiday (or in communication with a Jew, etc… just be creative) you must post something publicly on the Internet (or verbally say or write to this person) stating:
CREDO in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae, visibilium omnium et invisibilium
(I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible).
Et in unum Dominum Iesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum, ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula. Deum de Deo, Lumen de Lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero, genitum non factum, consubstantialem Patri; per quem omnia facta sunt
(And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father; through Whom all things were made).
When this has been accomplished you should briefly isolate yourself and Light a candle then state:
“Baruch Ateh Adonai Eloheinu Melekh Ha’Olahm Mattir Isurim”
(Blessed art Thou, Oh Lord our G_d who permitteth the Forbidden)
At this point eat something you are ethically opposed to (if you choose, you may do so symbolically such as a vegan pork sausage, etc or mixing soy milk with meat, etc.)
This is the necessary purification prior to the following Ritual of choosing to have a Name of the Holy Company. (There may still be several steps to complete before receiving one’s Name depending on the circumstances of the Individual or Potential Lodge. Some may choose to pause before continuing on and should seek counsel with the Order before doing so.)
Take 28 Stones and line either side of a short path with them (14 to each side).
Robe yourself in a clean and holy garment.
And bear or wear a Cross of some type fastened to a long ribbon or string (long enough to trail behind you) and fasten two small pieces of wood (preferably shaped like “shoes”) to your shoes.
Walk through this line of Stones while loudly proclaiming:
“Forsa damus para verti, seihut grandi asser verti!!!”
(Give us the power of seeing him and the great fortune of serving him).
Use whatever language and pronunciation you prefer.
Now take the Cross into a secluded room and hang it from a nail in a bench or chair or symbolic equivalent.
And on the bench or chair place a candle to either side of the Cross hung from the nail.
Disrobe and kneel before the Cross with head bowed.
After a sufficient time (your call).
Take the Cross in your hand and bow to the four directions and kiss the Cross.
“For this I have gone to a Naked Place”.
Replace the Cross and allow yourself to reflect until the Candles burn out.
On the following day take 12 Coins of equal value and cast them to the ground. then tread upon them and leave them.
Take the two very small pieces of wood (preferably in “shoe” type shapes) and leave them out of doors for three days, then carry them in your pocket for three days. Set them aside on the Seventh.
Then you may receive a Name from the Holy Company… you have only discuss your results and ask. Until such time as I retreat in Solitude to my concealment in that Tower of Strength called Migdal Oz.
