Healing Prayer-Pathworking

Healing Prayer-Pathworking


This little ritual was pieced together with 3 ritual leaders in mind for our own personal group use, however, I’ve subtracted all participant labels so that single users can enjoy it by themselves. If one has a group they are willing to try this with, the leader can follow this template or a similar one, while the audience partipants can close their eyes and visualize any appropriate pathworking colors or symbols that relate to the specific Sefirot as you go along. A simple template like this can easily be formatted any way you wish to include more techniques and aspects of guided visualization. The Psalms used here all relate to the Ari/Lurianic Tree instead of the Kircher, so adjust if necessary.

However, the version given here is bare-bones, and is based on prayer itself, simple Psalm verses that relate to the Paths between the Sefirot (specifically the first verse of the corresponding chapter of Psalm 119), and brief invocations of the Virtues of the ruling Divine Names and Archangels, up to the sphere of Tiferet.

The names of the targeted “patients” to be healed should be written in or around the Tiferet center of the Tree in the above graphic first. This diagram can be colored appropriately for further correspondences. Then, a candle, preferably yellow or white, should be used to move across the graphic to the symbolic sections of the Tree, as indicated by the ritual. One can easily print out the graphic provided, or draw their own version.

Personally, I plan on using a mid-sized taper or ‘household’ candle, and I will be anointing it with olive oil that would be blessed beforehand. One can use the Solomonic formula to bless the oil or any more simple Catholic/Christian prayers for the same purpose.

It should be noted that while the script itself is quite brief, the ritual itself should move at a slower pace, giving time for the prayers and pathworking effects to sink in on the behalf of the congregation. Even if just for yourself, it would of course be wise to keep the ritual room in darkest lighting possible without having any effect on being able to read your script. Create an atmosphere by burning incense, preferably Frankincense, sacred to Tiferet and Solar energies, and place your censer at the top of the graphic upon the altar.

In the beginning section of the ritual, the magician draws a large Invoking Fire and Water triangle, with an Equilateral Cross miedating the two in a Golden Dawn-style etheric placement, visualized in bright glowing colors. This symbol is Fire, Water, and Air in harmony, and is an appropriate Qabalistic symbol for harmony to begin the work.

Once the candle has ‘traveled’ up to the point of balance on the Tree, you will note that the given version of the ritual uses some Sacred Heart prayers and also a prayer that uses Holy Grail imagery. These are obviously Christian interpretations of the Tiferet center correspondences, but these can be exchanged for others if you wish. Invocations of other Death/Rebirth figures could be used as many often do, but also note that in this rite, Michael is used for Tiferet/Sol and Raphael for Hod/Mercury. One could also substitute for the Olympic Spirits as well.




[The altar uses a Censer, burning frankincense, placed at the top of a blank diagram of the Tree of Life, with the names of the patients to be healed written upon the Middle Pillar section, either within or around the Tiferet center. At the bottom of the diagram rests an unlit taper Candle, representing the patient/s. A small amount of Blessed Oil is prepared beforehand to anoint the candle]

O Lord God of Knowledge, grant us passage to the sources of healing!

Sacred Heart of Jesus, inflame our hearts with love. May the Most Precious Blood which was shed from the body of our Lord anoint us with spiritual redemption and the illumination of the Christos.

Holy Grail of the Lord, pour over our souls the healing Sacred Flame of the Holy Spirit. O Sacred Chalice of Salvation, commune with us eternally, and unite our hearts with the Principle of the Primordial Source, that we may be consecrated and protected as worthy children of God. Amen. 

O Lord, we ask that you bring Balance and Harmony to the lives of [insert names here] in Equilibrium of Body, Mind, and Soul. The powers of the Archangels be upon you: May Sandalphon bring you higher, further, and deeper into the Holy Mysteries, may Gavriel provide the Strength of God to empower you, may Raphael provide the Healing of God to bring you Divine Peace, may Haniel bring you the Joy and Grace that will enrich your lives, and may Michael guard you with his fiery sword of protection from all material and spiritual evils. 

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen. 

[The candle is left to burn down for a while as the magician spends a few moments in prayer before retiring]
