Ritual of the Rose Cross

Ritual of the Rose Cross A magical Ritual of protection to ward off Psychic Attack and interference from unwanted spirits and entities. The Ritual of the Rose Cross is important in the tradition of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Magical work itself is held to light up one’s aura so that attention is drawn to the practitioner. Without adequate protection, entities and individuals who possess magical skills can invade a person’s aura and create difficulties in daily life, even seriously jeopardizing health.

The Ritual of the Rose Cross places a shield or a veil around the aura so that it cannot be penetrated. It cleanses a place. The ritual also aids meditation work and helps a practitioner to withdraw consciousness to a higher level for problem solving or helping an individual in need. The ritual can be performed in actuality, or it can be imagined and visualized by a skilled magician.
