RITUAL 47 48 ADVANCED MAGICAL ARTS Consecrated Objects A consecrated object has a certain force inherent within it. This force does not drain away, and does not need to be habitually renewed or conditioned or recharged: further 'charge' may indeed be given through ceremony or group vital energies, but the spiritual force has permanently empowered the physical form . This is a typical example of a Solar or, more rarely, Stellar magical operation, in which the higher faculties of consciousness and energy re-attune a normally mundane object to the resonance of the higher worlds.

In such states, consciousness comprehends relative truths and experiences dynamic transformations beyond exterior form or interior imagery such as is used in visualisation. These higher modes and relationships may, however, be defined and given expression by the process of a symbolic descent, such as working through the Three Worlds or down the Tree of Life. This is traditionally described as a mirroring or echo of the divine act of creation, through which a human entity repeats the metaphysical unfolding or devolution that lead to the exteriorised worlds.

Advanced magical arts reverse this process, and the inner energies sanctify or endow the chosen objects with required properties. This is a very ancient magical concept indeed, and needs to be kept firmly in mind for practical work. During this short discussion, we have moved conceptually from the Lunar World (which includes our outer or physical body, thoughts and emotions) towards the Solar World: suddenly we have left objects behind as stimuli or associative symbols, but we may now return to them as vessels of power.
