Andrew Chumbley - A Rite of the Opposer
The intent of this rite is solely that given unto it by its practitioner in reciprocation to the intent of the Current summoned through its practice. The functions and applications are revealed solely through its practice and subsequent adaptation by the practitioner in accordance with such secret and unique directions as are revealed unto him. The initial directions are as follows: In a Place of Solitude and at the Hour of Twilight, light a single white candle and place it within the centre of one's shadow. Standing before the shadow and fixating all attention upon the light of the single flame - recite the Prayer of the Design. This done, pick up the candle and, moving anticlockwise, turn your back toward the shadow, then proceed to recite the Formulae of the Opposer. This being fulfilled and such adjunctive acts as are deemed pertinent being completed, turn about once more, and thus completing one full orientation, wordlessly extend the flame as in salutation towards the shadow; with a single breath or orison extinguish the candle. Then, as directed, walk away from the Place of Solitude and turn not to gaze back from whence you came -for such is a custom of Arte. The Prayer of Design may also be used in isolation or as an adjunctive/declaration in other suc h ritual/meditative procedures.
