From a fifteenth-century magical text, used as an incense in the ritual for contacting the Holy Guardian Angel, we have created Abra-Melin Ritual Oil for working with this intelligence, whether you connect to it as your own higher self, or as a separate Divine being.
Like our Somalixir formula, the Ritual Oil of Abra-Melin starts out intense, with a bright light and sensitivity to sound that is just this side of too much. As a peripheral energy on the skin, the Oil brings some protection and structure to this feeling, and the chaotic and unstructured sensations of light and sound soon sort into harmonies and order as they are meditated on.
With that, a vision comes of the self as a connecting point and center of light, receiving all the little lights of creation and focusing them into a pillar of centered being. In our meditations with this quality, we saw not just how to connect *to* our guides, but how to connect the many guiding plants and intelligences we work with to each other, through ourselves as a conduit.
