On Saturday, August 30th in threatening weather conditions, stalwart free illuminists met on Arabia Mountain Georgia and I consecrated Fellow Star Jimmy Lee Alderson to the episcopate in free communion, as Tau Thutmosis . When looking at the photos, be aware that when I began we were in a downpour on Consecration Rock but soldiered on, Tau Roger and Tau Salix Alba co-consecrating. As I began "Thunder, flash...." it duly rumbled from the sky, and flashed. I am wearing most of my robes and clothing-all soaked- in the photo with the 'turban'. As we began the healing circle, the Sun came out and we did once again a powerful healing circle.
CEREMONY USED IN CONSECRATION with notes
(For technical reasons on this occasion, the Hebrew version of the priestly blessing was omitted, as was "I set before you this day an blessing and a curse. Therefore choose life that you may live")
THUNDER, FLASH, ILLUMINATE, I DECLARE YOU ILLUMINATUS
I was sent forth from the power,
and I have come to those who reflect upon me,
and I have been found among those who seek after me.
Look upon me, you who reflect upon me,
and you hearers, hear me.
You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves.
And do not banish me from your sight.
And do not make your voice hate me, nor your hearing.
Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or any time. Be on your guard!
Do not be ignorant of me.
For I am the one who alone exists,
and I have no one who will judge me.
For many are the pleasant forms which exist in numerous sins,
and disgraceful passions,
and fleeting pleasures,
which (men) embrace until they become sober
and go up to their resting place.
And they will find me there,
and they will live,
and they will not die again.
Proverbs 8: CHah-ve-moht (First Co-consecrator)
Here then is Wisdom, the Sofia, the CHAHVEMOHT
1Does not (
And understanding lift up her voice?
2On top of (B)the heights beside the way,
Where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
3Beside the (C)gates, at the opening to the city,
At the entrance of the doors, she cries out:
4"To you, O men, I call,
And my voice is to the sons of men.
5"O (D)naive ones, understand prudence;
And, O (E)fools, understand wisdom.
6"Listen, for I will speak (F)noble things;
And the opening of my lips will reveal (G)right things.
7"For my (H)mouth will utter truth;
And wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
8"All the utterances of my mouth are in righteousness;
There is nothing (I)crooked or perverted in them.
9"They are all (J)straightforward to him who understands,
And right to those who (K)find knowledge.
10"Take my (L)instruction and not silver,
And knowledge rather than choicest gold.
11"For wisdom is (M)better than jewels;
And (N)all desirable things cannot compare with her.
12"I, wisdom, (O)dwell with prudence,
And I find (P)knowledge and discretion.
13"The (Q)fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
(R)Pride and arrogance and (S)the evil way
And the (T)perverted mouth, I hate.
14"(U)Counsel is mine and (V)sound wisdom;
I am understanding, (W)power is mine.
15"By me (X)kings reign,
And rulers decree justice.
16"By me princes rule, and nobles,
All who judge rightly.
17"I (Y)love those who love me;
And (Z)those who diligently seek me will find me.
18"(AA)Riches and honor are with me,
Enduring (AB)wealth and righteousness.
19"My fruit is (AC)better than gold, even pure gold,
And my yield better than (AD)choicest silver.
20"I walk in the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice,
21To endow those who love me with wealth,
That I may (AE)fill their treasuries.
22"The LORD possessed me (AF)at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old.
23"From everlasting I was (AG)established,
From the beginning, (AH)from the earliest times of the earth.
24"When there were no (AI)depths I was brought forth,
When there were no springs abounding with water.
25"(AJ)Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills I was brought forth;
26While He had not yet made the earth and the fields,
Nor the first dust of the world.
27"When He (AK)established the heavens, I was there,
When (AL)He inscribed a circle on the face of the deep,
28When He made firm the skies above,
When the springs of the deep became fixed,
29When (AM)He set for the sea its boundary
So that the water would not transgress His command,
When He marked out (AN)the foundations of the earth;
30Then (AO)I was beside Him, as a master workman;
And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,
31Rejoicing in the world, His earth,
And having (AP)my delight in the sons of men.
32"Now therefore, O sons, (AQ)listen to me,
For (AR)blessed are they who keep my ways.
33"(AS)Heed instruction and be wise,
And do not neglect it.
34"(AT)Blessed is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at my doorposts.
35"For (AU)he who finds me finds life
And (AV)obtains favor from the LORD.
36"But he who sins against me (AW)injures himself;
All those who (AX)hate me (AY)love death."
BLESSING OF THE KOHENIM ( Consecrator)
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you -
May the LORD lift up his light unto you, and grant you peace.
