The Middle Pillar Ritual

In Modern Magick, Donald Michael Kraig spends a few paragraphs discussing kundalini and orgone energy before he gives instructions to the middle pillar ritual. It seems he sees those two energies and the energy being worked with in this ritual as identical. Much has been made of the danger of working with kundalini energy but Kraig regards this ritual as much safer, calling it ‘reverse kundalini’ because energy is drawn downwards rather than upwards. ‘By the time the energy reaches the powerful sexual centers it will have become so purified that, in effect, it spiritualizes the energies that otherwise might only be expressed in a sexual manner.’ Expect an analysis of the ritual going forward, for the moment here are some basic instructions on its performance.

Part 1: The Ritual

+ Stand facing east, and visualise a sphere of white light above your head. Focus on it, and vibrate, EH-HEH-YEH four times.

+ Feel the light descend, and have it form another sphere in your throat. This time, vibrate, YUD-HEH-VAHV-HEH EL-OH-HEEM four times.

+ Repeat the step above, this time forming the sphere around your heart and vibrating, YUD-HEH-VAHV-HEH EL-OH-AH-VDAH-AT.

+ Repeat again, this time vibrating, SHAH-DAI-EL-CHAI around the base of your spine.

+ Form the last sphere at your feet, this time vibrating AH-DOH-NAI HAH-AH-RETZ.

Part 2: Circulating the Body of Light
