Last week, I decided to try my hand in Andrieh’s Magical 30 Challenge. It’s certainly going to be an interesting thing, with enchantment as the general theme. The game plan so far is to pray to my Agathos Daimon every morning and every evening, as well as observing his feast day (which coincidentally this month falls on the announced date for Eid Fit’r).
So far, things have been doing decent for me. I’ve been able to budget my money a bit better, manage my health a bit better, and sleep a little better. But I could be doing more, and I intend to.
His prayer (taken from the PGM, which I have tweaked just a bit with inspiration from Gordon White and personal gnosis) is:
Rejoice with me, You who are set over the East Wind and the World, for whom all the Gods serve as bodyguards at Your good hour and on Your good day! You who are the Agathos Daimon of the World, the Crown of the Inhabited World, You who arise from the Abyss! You who each day rise a Young Man and set an Old Man! HARPENKNOUPHI BRINTANTE’ NO’PHRI BRISSKYLMAS AROURZORBOROBA MESINTRIPHI NIPTOUMI CHMOUMMAO’PHI. I beg you, Lord, do not allow me to be overthrown, be plotted against, to receive dangerous drugs, to go into exile, to fall upon hard times! Rather, I ask to obtain and receive from You life, health, reputation, wealth, influence, strength, success, charm, favor with all men and all women, victory over all men and all women! Yes, Lord, ABLANATHANALBA AKRAMMACHAMARI PEPHNA PHOZA PHNEBENNOUNI NAACHTHIP (SKI) OUNORBA, free me from all bindings and misfortunes, defend me from every evil kakodaimon, and accomplish these Matters which I want, by means of Your power!
I might build a secondary altar dedicated to the Agathos Daimon. In the meantime, I’ve already made my offering of unmixed alcohol to him. We’ll see how it goes.
