Defense for Spiritual Warfare, Part 1

I am reading through this course and have a few questions concerning certain invocations.

Fons Alpha on the other hand is more like putting up a defensive shield. It is a prayer of protection. That prayer is more important when you are actually being attacked, if someone is trying to hurt you or harm you or dissuade you from what you are trying to do.

How can this be used in a situation where you are being attacked?

Here is the prayer in question:

Fons Alpha Et Omega, Figa, Figalis Sabbaoth, Emmanuel, Adonay, O, Neray, Ela, Ihe, Reutone, Neger, Sahe, Pangeton, Commen, Agla, Matheus, Marcus, Lucas, Johannes, Titulus Triunphalis, Jesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum, Ecce Dominicae Crucis Signum Fugite Partes Adversae, Vicit Leo De Tribu Judae, Radix David Alelluyah, Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Et Ne Vos, Et Venia Super Nos Salutare Tuum, Oremus.

This is quite a mouthful and it is not the longest prayer. Surely, you would be thwarted and return to your physical body before you could ever finish such a prayer. This prayer seems far too lengthy relative to the time an attacker has to lay hands upon you. I don't see any practical application for this in the heat of battle. Would an instructor care to elaborate on the use of this particular prayer as well as other long prayers like the Conjuration of the Four or Seven in defense against a hostile aggressor? I find Belilin difficult enough to utter in hostile situations against multiple or hidden aggressors. I can't imagine being able to rattle off the Fons Alpha under duress. If I had that kind of concentration, the level of psychological equilibrium associated with that level of concentration, I would think I would be beyond the need of such prayers.

Or is the Fons Alpha a "defensive shield" you erect in advance as a precaution? Which then begs the question of how long does it last? And can you visually perceive it in the internal worlds in order to know that the prayer was successful because if it isn't I don't see how you'd be able to erect it under genuine duress.

But regardless of the Fons Alpha's usage, the question remains open concerning offensives prayers like the Conjuration of the Seven.

I would like to first explain why I am coming from the perspective that the Conjuration of the Seven is reactive, as opposed to proactive. In the article of the same name (I jumped ahead a little to look into these prayers) an instructor recounts an encounter with Moloch. It was said that he attempted to conjure Moloch, but Moloch was unfazed and mocked the instructor. Later the teller of the account said Samael Aun Weor told him he needed to use the Conjuration of the Seven because that demon was too powerful. In that instance the instructor is told that he would have to recite, "'By the holy Elohim and by the names of the Genii Cashiel, Sehaltiel, Aphiel and Zarahiel, at the command of Orifiel, depart from us Moloch! We deny thee our children to devour,’ because he is a very strong black magician."

Seeing as we wouldn't know who a particular demon is during such an encounter we would need to recite the entire invocation, not just the segment relevant to a particular personage. If this instructor had attempted such a prayer surely Moloch would have made quick work of him before he got close to finishing the invocation.

In this same article it is stated:

"[...]we have to invoke all those forces in order to conjure Moloch, because he is very strong. We also name the genii of Saturn / Binah which descend through the left side of The Tree of Life in order to conjure Moloch. He is very strong. He can swerve you easily."

Is this saying that Moloch is more powerful than Cashiel, Sehaltiel, Zarahiel and Aphiel combined? Only being overpowered when a fifth angel, Orifiel, is invoked? Following this line of thought, do angels maintain dominance by virtue of superior numbers? Or is there any dominant faction at all between the two? The talk of duality and the fighting between god and demon seem to imply both are on an equal level, but at the same time I read elsewhere that most demons are sealed in the Abyss. Could an instructor give more detail on these relationships?

Audience: What direction does the altar need to face?

Instructor: When setting up an altar there are a lot of details that you can apply. Some of them are in The Yellow Book by Samael Aun Weor. It is best if possible for your altar to face the east, so that when you are sitting at your altar you face the east. In some houses it is not possible, so you can get as close to that as you can. If you cannot do that, it is not a big deal. It can be a symbolic east. North is also good, but east is generally the preference.

What is the significance of the eastward direction?

In order to conjure the fallen angels, one must invoke their opposites, the angelic forces, which manifest through the human souls of the angels. Do not be mistaken: Orifiel is not the Being of Moloch! Orifiel is the angel of the positive spiritual ray of Saturn, whereas Moloch is the demon of the inverted, negative ray of the influence of Saturn.

Our conjurations only have as much force as we have awakened consciousness and have the sufficient energy to sustain ourselves spiritually. Circles of protection will always protect the disciple unless he or she walks out of it or allows entities outside to enter.

I am sorry to have to admit this, but Moloch is no stranger to me. I knew him many centuries ago in the Middle East. I will not tell you specifically how I know him, because that information will not help you understand this subject with clarity.

Since you are a reader of Al-Qur'an, let me reiterate one point to you:
When the faithless plotted against you to take you captive, or to kill or expel you. They plotted and Allah devised, and Allah is the best of devisers. -Al-Anfāl [8:30]

Thus have We installed in every town its major criminals that they may plot therein. Yet they do not plot except against their own souls, but they are not aware.

And when a sign comes to them, they say, ‘We will not believe until we are given the like of what was given to Allah’s apostles.’ Allah knows best where to place His apostleship! Soon the guilty will be visited by a degradation before Allah and a severe punishment because of the plots they used to devise. -Al-Anʿām [6:123-4]
God respects everyone's free will, but the law is the law, and cannot be mocked with impunity. Therefore, the sorcerers of the left hand path plot and devise, and are given freedom of reign so that they might repent of their actions; however, most continue to behave in the negative manner, ignoring that their plots shall fall upon them with severity because they ignore the law of balance.

The fact that numerous fallen angels exist should be no surprise; they fell on purpose in order to eventually acquire more knowledge. This is explained in lectures like "The Archeus" by Samael Aun Weor. But this is a topic not meant for sheep, for long ears, to quote Friedrich Nietzsche.

You may study Paradise Lost by the Initiate John Milton, and thereby meditate on what you read, traveling out of your physical body so as to investigate the phenomena and noumena mentioned in that text. Then this subject will be clear to you, since it is clear that the fallen angels know that they are fighting a hopeless battle, but they continue to do so out of hate and despair. For as Satan addresses his legions and armies that fought and were expelled from heaven in Milton's epic poem:
Powers and Dominions, Deities of Heav'n,
For since no deep within her gulf can hold
Immortal vigor, though opprest and fall'n,
I give not Heav'n for lost. From this descent
Celestial vertues rising, will appear
More glorious and more dread then from no fall,
And trust themselves to fear no second fate.
Book II, lines 11-17
Or, to quote the tenebrous Moloch within the same poem, in the council of Pandaemonium:
He ceas'd, and next him Moloc, Scepter'd King
Stood up, the strongest and the fiercest Spirit
That fought in Heav'n; now fiercer by despair:
His trust was with th' Eternal to be deem'd
Equal in strength, and rather then be less
Care'd not to be at all; with that care lost
Went all his fear: of God, or Hell, or worse
He reck'd not, and these words thereafter spake.

My sentence is for open Warr: Of Wiles,
More unexpert, I boast not: them let those
Contrive who need, or when they need, not now.
For while they sit contriving, shall the rest,
Millions that stand in Arms, and longing wait
he Signal to ascend, sit lingring here
Heav'ns fugitives, and for thir dwelling place
Accept this dark opprobrious Den of shame,
The Prison of his Tyranny who Reigns
By our delay? no, let us rather choose
Arm'd with Hell flames and fury all at once
O're Heav'ns high Towrs to force resistless way,
Turning our Tortures into horrid Arms
Against the Torturer; when to meet the noise
Of his Almighty Engin he shall hear
Infernal Thunder, and for Lightning see
Black fire and horror shot with equal rage
Among his Angels; and his Throne it self
Mixt with Tartarean Sulphur, and strange fire,
His own invented Torments. But perhaps
The way seems difficult and steep to scale
With upright wing against a higher foe.
Let such bethink them, if the sleepy drench
Of that forgetful Lake benumm not still,
That in our proper motion we ascend
Up to our native seat: descent and fall
To us is adverse. Who but felt of late
When the fierce Foe hung on our brok'n Rear
Insulting, and pursu'd us through the Deep,
With what compulsion and laborious flight
We sunk thus low? Th' ascent is easie then;
Th' event is fear'd; should we again provoke
Our stronger, some worse way his wrath may find
To our destruction: if there be in Hell
Fear to be worse destroy'd: what can be worse
Then to dwell here, driv'n out from bliss, condemn'd
In this abhorred deep to utter woe;
Where pain of unextinguishable fire
Must exercise us without hope of end
The Vassals of his anger, when the Scourge
Inexorably, and the torturing hour
Calls us to Penance? More destroy'd then thus
We should be quite abolisht and expire.
What fear we then? what doubt we to incense
His utmost ire? which to the highth enrag'd,
Will either quite consume us, and reduce
To nothing this essential, happier farr
Then miserable to have eternal being:
Or if our substance be indeed Divine,
And cannot cease to be, we are at worst
On this side nothing; and by proof we feel
Our power sufficient to disturb his Heav'n,
And with perpetual inrodes to Allarme,
Though inaccessible, his fatal Throne:
Which if not Victory is yet Revenge.
Book II, lines 43-105
Crazy, no? But still the fallen angels persist.

So far, all of this is really just conjecture, until you, yourself, awaken within the internal planes and investigate these things personally. Regarding battles in the internal planes, there is no inconsistency here. The Being is imperturbable, but the Bodhisattva, as the expression of the Gods, may fall. You will not understand the nature of Beings, Bodhisattvas, demons, and free will by being curious or asking questions on a forum, but by awakening your consciousness.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

When a soldier prepares for war, he arms himself. The way that we arm ourselves for battle is through study, practice, and recitation. This helps engraves the conjurations in the memory, so that when we are in trouble, we know how to recite them with clarity and strength. Even if you are very concentrated within the internal planes and are prepared to combat an aggressor, without knowledge of these sacred mantras, one is weak, precisely because the conjurations invoke the Christ in order to protect us. If we do not rely on Christ, then we will fail in all our endeavors.

The Conjuration of the Seven is also defensive. All the prayers and conjurations are methods of spiritual defense. We do not work with aggressive methods in these studies, but only seek to defend ourselves when we need to.

Regarding the fallen angels, when you know the prayers by heart and have awakened to a certain degree, you will immediately know who you are dealing with. Some times you may not be sure, therefore, you need to know the entire prayer in order to recite it fully and accurately, so as to properly defend yourself.

Whenever Moloch came after me within Limbo, I recited the section of the conjuration of the seven, "By the holy Elohim and by the names of the Genii Cashiel, Sehaltiel, Aphiel and Zarahiel, at the command of Orifiel, depart from us Moloch! We deny thee our children to devour..." He always retracted with great displeasure from me whenever I've pronounced this part of the conjuration. Therefore, there is time to pronounce these mantras. Certainly it is not pleasant to be persecuted by such a terrible demon, but when you remember God and pray, you are safe.

Since Moloch is very fallen, we need a lot of assistance in order to reject him, hence the invocation of the five angels (representing the Pentagram), including his positive double, Orifiel. We have to comprehend that God is beyond the mind, the devil, and the abyss. One thing is the Bodhisattva fully united with Christ, and another thing is the Christ within the Bodhisattva. Therefore, if you awaken in the internal planes in order to witness the battles between the angels and demons, it is through the Bodhisattvas of the Gods and the demons of Klipoth. The demons are not equal to the Bodhisattvas; the former are tenebrous, fallen, and degenerated, whereas the latter are fully expressing their Intimate Christ, which is the power that rejects the evil ones. The demons cannot withstand the powers of the Christ, and therefore, when struck, vanish and disappear, since they have been sent down into the lower dimensions. This is something we can verify within the atmosphere of astral plane when we invoke Christ during the early morning hours, although I don't necessarily recommend this.

Lastly, east refers to Tiphereth on the Tree of Life, since from the East rises the sun of the dawn, the immaculate morning star, the Intimate Christ, who must descend and incarnate within the Bodhisattva, the altar of sacrifice, in order to benefit humanity.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

Hello Benedictus,

When I say "aggressive" I am referring to anything which will drive away, cause harm or discomfort to an opponent regardless of the circumstances it is used in (i.e. self-defense). As opposed to a Circle of Protection which is purely defensive, not actually harming an aggressor.

On the subject of the Circle of Protection and other basic invocations, when it comes to particularly powerful black magicians would the Conjuration of Jupiter, Belilin and the Circle of Protection be ineffective?

Also, I'm curious, does Belilin have an effective range; be it dependent on your imagination, level of energy, etc.?

Is there a set time that the effects of Belilin endure; be it a standard duration across the board, based on the individual caster's energy level, etc.?

Can the Circle of Protection be penetrated by an attacker with sufficient power?

Could a person quickly cast a small Circle of Protection immediately around themselves and then expand that circle outwards to push away aggressors? Speaking from a purely defensive perspective, it seems like this would be the only technique anyone would actually need to defend themselves. The Fons Alpha et Omega is another possibly purely defensive incantation if it is, in fact, a proactive "defense field". I received no confirmation on that.

On the topic of the Fons Alpha et Omega, is it a precautionary technique to be implemented proactively before a negative situation emerges? If so, can you visually perceive it in the internal worlds in order to know that the prayer was successful? Does the Fons Alpha have a duration for which it will last?

I know I have a lot of questions. :D

Whenever Moloch came after me within Limbo, I recited the section of the conjuration of the seven, "By the holy Elohim and by the names of the Genii Cashiel, Sehaltiel, Aphiel and Zarahiel, at the command of Orifiel, depart from us Moloch! We deny thee our children to devour..." He always retracted with great displeasure from me whenever I've pronounced this part of the conjuration. Therefore, there is time to pronounce these mantras. Certainly it is not pleasant to be persecuted by such a terrible demon, but when you remember God and pray, you are safe.


Why would Moloch attack you, or anyone else for that matter?

I can understand the various minor creatures (parasites) and thought forms who either repeat the conditions/sentiments of their creation or who simply want to feed on a person's energy directly, but I cannot quite figure out why a personage like Moloch would be concerned with attacking strangers. Because I've heard this type of account even from black magicians claiming they are attacked by angels and have to defend themselves.

Of all the billions(?) of demons that would hypothetically stretch across the face of the infradimensions what are the chances that you would even encounter that particular personage? Did you seek him out intentionally?

Since Moloch is very fallen, we need a lot of assistance in order to reject him, hence the invocation of the five angels (representing the Pentagram), including his positive double, Orifiel.


By asserting Orifiel is Moloch's positive double, do you mean to say that Moloch is Orifiel's fallen Human Soul?

Therefore, if you awaken in the internal planes in order to witness the battles between the angels and demons, it is through the Bodhisattva of the Gods and the demons of Klipoth.


The gods cannot descend, correct? Without willing hosts to act as vehicles they would be powerless against the forces of Klipoth? By that I mean, without Bodhisattva, the demons would freely exist from the 9th Sphere to the Mental Plane without restriction. In other words, neither side would have contact with the other; demons on one side, gods on the other. There would be no conflict between them?

The demons are not equal to the Bodhisattva; the former are tenebrous, fallen, and degenerated, whereas the latter are fully expressing their Intimate Christ, which is the power that rejects the evil ones. The demons cannot withstand the powers of the Christ, and therefore, when struck, vanish and disappear, since they have been sent down into the lower dimensions.


So what you are saying is there is no actual battle. It would be like chihuahua puppy in a small room facing a wild chimpanzee in a death match. What you are describing is such a one-sided predicament that it does not even make sense for a demon to appear on the battlefield. It's so one-sided that no demon could possibly ignore their comparative weakness and think they are doing well; that their path is superior.

If it was a matter of numerical superiority I could understand, but if a single angel could lay waste to a legion of demons, coupled with their ego, I do not see how a demon could justify their situation. Their ego would not allow them to serenely take such repeated beatings, get back up and continue to believe they were better off. Their entire self-image would be shattered. One would think they wouldn't go out of their way to mislead others, cause strife and dig their holes even deeper if they know they are at the mercy of the angels' whelms. What would even be the point in opposing the White Lodge? How could one act in opposition to such power? How can the world be in such a mess if the White Lodge could exercise so much power over demons?

Before I was aware of any of this type of thought I classified myself as a Muslim. I had argued against traditionalists that Iblis was animal instinct, which became "evil" when mankind were perfected (through evolution at the time), then charged to act like men. And, furthermore, that angels were natural phenomenon (Iblis and the Jinn making up certain behavioral phenomenon in nature). This was my interpretation of the Qur'an. Unlike the Bible the Qur'an will say "this is allegory" or "this is to be taken literally". One of the main issues with this idea that Iblis literally rebelled against God is that Iblis would have to know that he could not win. Such a rebellion would be unimaginably idiotic. Completely nonsensical. Iblis would know - not believe, think or conjecture, but know - that the only result of such defiance would be pain.

So here I am now reading about how the angels are so overwhelmingly powerful and yet the demons still rebel. I don't mean to offend, but what you are saying sounds just as nonsensical as Iblis literally rebelling against God. It sounds like one side talking themselves up over their enemy. I could understand if the angels have a numerical advantage and the demons were simply holding on to some distant hope of one day acquiring the strength and/or numbers to turn the tables, but this is not the case according to these teachings. The demons have to know they are on the wrong side. There is no way around it. There is no room for any pretense in the matter of them being on a superior path.

But at the same time you're talking about invoking 5 angels to stop one (particularly strong) demon in an invocation. This still implies to me that that particular (atypical) demon has amassed more strength than the typical angel. But yet at the same time you state a Bodhisattva can cut through a demon like a hot knife through butter. This does not seem consistent.
