The Mysterious Pentagram...
The Pentagram means different
things to different people. Some may argue as to what it represents, but
I will tell you what it means to me. The Pentagram right side up represents
the Divine God ruling over the world of matter. The 5 points represent the
5 places that Christ was wounded. Traditionally they say that Demons are
afraid of it. This is TV and movie crap. Demons would only laugh at you
if you thought you could scare them off with a right side pentagram.
The pentagram also represents the Microcosmic man with his arms stretched out.
Let us not forget that it
also represents the elements Spirit, Water, Air, Earth,
and Fire as shown below.
This is used by most people in Witchcraft.
Now there is also the upside-down Pentagram. It represents Satan or the world of matter ruling over God. Deciding when the inverted star actually came to be known as a symbol of evil can be confusing. There is no general consensus among historians and even Wiccans and witches are not in full agreement. Some say this happened around the time of the Inquisition, while others say it could have been as late as the 19th century. Normally it is only worn by Satanists or devil worshipers, but the Mormans have used this symbol inverted for quite some time and Mormon apologists have quickly come to their church's defense by insisting that pentagrams have historically been a positive symbol and only recently have become a symbol of evil, therefore concluding that any comparison to the Nauvoo pentagrams is nothing more than sensationalism. The Freemasons also use this symbol inverted in their ranks. Now I know they they do worship the "Light Bearer" (Lucifer) but they worship him for the light. So you see someone can take any symbol and change the meaning of it to suit their own needs and this is fine.
Here we have an example of
both the right side up and the reversed Pentagram...
Right side up (God ruling) Upside-down (material world ruling)
Many mainstream religion believers
think that they are both evil and represent the Devil. But that is because
they are so... ignorant and blind to the fact that there is a difference.
It shows their lack of study on the true facts of history. I wear the right
side up Pentagram and I personally have had many people come up to me and
ask me if I am a Devil worshiper. But I explain the reality to them. I will
tell you that sometimes it is best not to wear one at all in public simply
to save persecution from the ignorant. It is best to wear it during your
own magical practices in private. This will be your own choice.
Now it is time to teach you
a very important and powerful Ritual called the
Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram...
This ritual will surround and protect you with the power of the Almighty aspects of God and his Archangels. This ritual should be done every day in the morning and at the end of the day. Try not to do it right before bed , because it will energize you to where you won't be able to go to sleep. This ritual is exactly what it says... it banishes all spirits or influences good or bad that may be around you. It gives you an open channel to God with no interference! When you do this you are in the presence of God! So treat it with respect. After a period of time you will notice a difference in your life. You will have that Glow! It strengthens your Aura so that you are like a shinning sun. This ritual is also one of the first ones you would do after conjuring a spirit or using the Ouija board.
