The Conjuration of the Four is a powerful conjuration that the magician uses in order to invoke the higher forces of the world of Yetzirah (the world of the angels, the world of formation) in order to reject negative forces related with the four elements of nature, which are related with our psychosomatic nature.

The world of Yetzirah in Kabbalah is related with the lower Sephiroth of the third triangle of the Tree of Life, which is formed by Netzach, Hod, and Yesod. Our mind relates to Netzach, our emotions to Hod, and our sexual/motor/instinctive brain to Yesod. The Sephirah Malkuth, which is below the third triangle, relates to the physical body.

All of these Sephiroth are precisely represented in the graphic of the Star of David (the six pointed star) with the four holy creatures, which in Hebrew are named Chaioth ha Kadosh.

The four holy creatures relate with the top of the Tree of Life in the world of Yetzirah, which relates to the Sephirah Binah, the Holy Spirit. In the world of Atziluth the Holy Spirit, Binah has the sacred name Jehovah God or Jehovah Elohim. In previous lectures where we addressed the three mother letters Aleph, Shin, and Mem we stated that Mem relates to the third triangle and also to Binah, the forces of the Holy Ghost. Thus, in Binah we find the name Jehovah Elohim, which is the Kabbalistic name of יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei, the four lettered name of Elohim, God, which is symbolized here by these four creatures.


At the bottom of this image you see the Hebrew letters Aleph, Daleth, Nun, and Iod which form the word אדני Adonai. The word Adonai means “my Lord” in Hebrew. Adon is lord. Adonai or Adony means “my Lord.” Adonai is another Tetragrammaton or “four lettered name.” The Conjuration of the Four addresses the Tetragrammaton. Tetra means “four” and gramma means “graphic or letter.” Tetragrammaton therefore means the “four lettered name of God,” which we always state is יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei, yet here we also say it is Adonai or Adony, since Adonai also has four letters, namely Aleph, Daleth, Nun and Iod. In other words Adonai is another Tetragrammaton or another Tetragram.

So the Tetragram אדני Adonai relates to the world of Malkuth, which is symbolized by a cross in the middle of a circle. The cross relates with the four elements, with the four cardinal points. These elements in Alchemy are salt, sulfur, mercury, and azoth.

Why are we talking about these four elements of Alchemy? Because when we go into the world of Yetzirah, we go into that which is called “the world of priesthood” related to the triangle of priesthood or magic.  Priest comes from the ancient word mag, which means “priest.” So when we are talking about a priest or a priestess, we are talking about a mag, a Magi, a magician.

In order to be a magician, a priest, or a priestess, we have to perform three types of priesthood, three types of magic:  

  1. Yesod is related with the sexual/motor/instinctive brain, and therefore it is related with Sexual Magic: Tantra, sexual tantric priesthood.
  2. Hod relates with ceremonial magic or ceremonial priesthood, those rituals performed in different religions which are always related with the four elements. Any mass, any ritual, relates with Hod, which is related with the heart. In Hod, we find mysticism.
  3. In the head, Netzach, we find hermetic magic or the hermetic priesthood, in which you exercise power over the mind and over the forces of nature.

centers-and-brains-colorAs you observe, these three aspects of magic are related with our three brains, which are the intellectual brain, the emotional brain, and the sexual motor instinctive brain.

This is why when we enter into this path, which is the path of priesthood, the path of magic, in which we have to acquire the level of human being. We emphasize that we need to work with the three factors which relate with the three brains. The three brains relate with the three primary forces.

The three brains in the physical body imply the Tetragram. Three in Christianity are Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are the Holy Affirmation, Holy Negation, and Holy Conciliation, which act through the three brains. In Christianity, it is stated that there are three persons in one God, or three forces in one triangle. When you see a triangle, you see a unity (1), but within that unity you see three points (3), three lines, three forces.  This is how in geometry we explain that three (3) in one (1) means the Tetragram (4), the four letter name of God or the four forces.

This is what we are. If you observe, we have three brains in one body. This is why in alchemy and Kabbalah the four creatures represent the three brains.

The lion represents the heart, the fire.

The eagle represents the head, which is the mind, the air.

The bull represents the forces or the sexual energy of Binah. Remember that we always indicate that Binah is the winged bull, and also that Geburah is the winged bull that goes down to Malkuth, the earth.

In the middle of these creatures we find the angel who is the man, Adam, made from the earth,  but that resides in the world of Yesod, which is the water.

The man is the water, the bull is the earth, the lion is the fire, and the eagle is the air. In other words, we as Adam, symbol of the physical body, have three brains. We are that Tetragram.  

This is why in Kabbalah, when we name the Tetragram, sometimes we address אדני Adonai, “Adony” my Lord, because the word Adonai also has four Hebrew letters, which are synthesized in the physical body. Adonai or “Adony” is the holy name of God in physical matter, in the physical body. This is why you see in the graphic that Adonai is the one who stands out on this graphic because all these holy creatures work under the command of Adonai, who, individually speaking, is an angel. One thing is Adonai as an archetype, and another is Adonai the angel. The angel Adonai is an angel of the Moon. He works under the command of Gabriel, the archangel of the Moon. Within us, Adonai is an archetype. Each one of us as has his own particular individual Adonai.

In Samael Aun Weors book The Three Mountains, he explains that Adonai is his best friend. “My good friend,” he says “the angel Adonai,” who of course works with every initiate. Adonai is the companion of any magician when he enters into the path, and this is why when we speak the Conjuration of the Four, we are addressing the four elements of nature that relate to us, to our nature, and to the superior nature or the world of formation, the world of angels.

The angels in the world of Yetzirah control the sylphs of the air, the salamanders of fire, the gnomes of the earth, and the undines of the water. Those are the elementals of nature that relate to our body, physically speaking as well as psychologically.

When we enter into this path, we have to fight against the negative forces of nature that work through our ego.

The devolving forces of nature fight not only within us - individually speaking - but also through the left side of the Tree of Knowledge, which we call “evil,” where we find black magicians or black priests who exercise power over the devolving forces. They can command the elementals, yet in the evil way.

kabbalah-the-tree-of-lifeTo understand this, we have to observe the Tree of Life. In the Tree of Life are three columns. The column on the right has Chokmah, Chesed, Netzach. The column on the left has Binah, Geburah and Hod. The column in the middle is composed of Kether, Tiphereth, Yesod and Malkuth. We also find in the middle column that mysterious Sephirah called Daath.

So on the right side of the Tree of Life, we find the lion, which represents Chokmah and Chesed.

On the left, we find the bull, which is related with Binah and Geburah.  

In the center is Tiphereth and Kether, which relate to the eagle in the upper triangles above the world of Yetzirah.

Adam or the angel among the four creatures belongs to the two lower Sephiroth, Yesod and Malkuth.

The right in Hebrew is what is called Tob, “good,” and the left in Hebrew is called Rah, “evil.” So in the left is where we find that tempting serpent that can fall or go up according to our sexual behavior, emotional behavior, and mental behavior, because remember that we have three brains.

The serpent can fall not only by fornicating, but also by committing treason through the heart. In sex is the source and very foundation of the forces of God or the forces of the Holy Spirit, yet in the heart we also find the energies of the Lord related with faithfulness, devotion, love; thus, treason can send the serpent of the left downwards to hell to develop in evilness. Through the mind, likewise, because there are many sorcerers, black magicians who utilize the mind for evil. They know how to command the elementals of nature with their mind.

The Gnostic also knows how to control the forces of nature, the elementals, with his mind, but he always respects freewill and the will of the angels of Yetzirah. When we want to exercise control over any plant we utilize our mind in order to command the elemental related to that plant, but always we ask permission of our inner God in order to do it, because God is the one who does that type of magic, which is called hermetic magic.

Our inner God in his turn asks permission to the angels of Yetzirah - the ones who command the elementals of nature - in order to exercise certain rituals in favor of something or somebody.

The black magicians know how to do magic, but they do not ask permission to any heavenly being, not even to their own God, because they are not even following their own God. They just want to develop powers. They do not care about the will of the angels of Yetzirah. Black magicians only perform whatever they want, by their own whim, better said, by their evil-will. By evil-will I am addressing their ego, because such is the nature of the black magicians; they walk on the path of magic and priesthood not with Chesed, their Being, but with their ego - yes, with their ego-will of Klipoth.  

In this day and age, as you can see, there are people who are unconsciously making catastrophes in nature, like that oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. They did not ask permission of the angels in order to drill there, in order to take the petroleum out of bed of the ocean. Thus, you can see the catastrophe they unleashed because they are doing their own whim. Through their selfish way they originate karma.

On the other hand, the white magician respects nature and asks first to his inner Being. If the Angels allow his inner Being, then the operation is done, because the angels also do their work under the law of karma. Thus, if the law of karma allows it, then they give permission to do it. So, in any magical white work, everything is done through an organized hierarchy.

Nevertheless, unfortunately, since we have the ego very alive, we have to know how to conjure the negative forces, beginning with those within ourselves, and then the negative forces from nature, in order for us to have a positive effect in our psyche, spirit, and body.  Thus, for that purpose, we always invoke the higher forces of the Tetragram to unite with our lower forces, in order to reject the inferior forces.

Here below, physically, we are a Tetragram: three brains in one body, which equals four, one unity.  Such a three in one also exists above, not only in Yetzirah, but also in the world of Briah, which is the world of creation, and beyond, in the world of Atziluth, the world of archetypes.  So those Tetragrammatons above are the three triangles of the Tree of Life, namely Yetzirah, Briah, and Atziluth. The three Tetragrams in the three worlds make twelve:  the three worlds and the four Tetragrams, one in each world; three by four is twelve. This is the magic of the number twelve, which is symbolized in the Star of David. This is why on the Star of David you find six points (masculine) and six entrances (feminine) which makes twelve, indicating that the power over the four elements, the power over those creatures, is related with the superior worlds.

The angels of Yetzirah control the four elements (Tattvas). The angels are controlled by the archangels or the world of Briah. The archangels of the world of Briah obey the will of God of the world of Atziluth, which is the world of the Logos.

So everything is mathematical, and comes down to us in a mathematical way. This is why we insist that the three factors of the revolution of the Consciousness that we teach in the Gnostic tradition is not something that we invented. It is something we have to do, because we have three brains, three forces.

The three primary forces create, if you analyze, in every way. For instance, right now I represent in this lecture the holy affirmation. I am affirming things that I understand, that I comprehend. You are passive: holy negation; you are just listening. These are two forces. But at the end of the lecture, we always invite you to ask questions, because there has to be a communion between the negative force and the positive force (affirmation and negation) in order to conciliate both through a third force. I don’t know if you understand what I understand, thus this is why it is good to have questions and answers, because through the third force, the questions, comes the fourth, which is comprehension of what we are talking about. You see four; affirmation (speaker), negation (listener), questions or reconciliation of both, and conclusion or understanding of the topic in our own level. This is how you see the Tetragrammaton working in one unity.  This is how the third factor, charity, works.  

We have to work with the three forces in order to create.

In the factor that we call “to be born again,” which is Alchemy or the transmutation of the sexual energy, the woman is the negative or passive force and the man is the affirmation or active force, and when they are in sexual union there is conciliation of both with the eventual awakening of the fire of the Kundalini, the fire of the Holy Ghost, which will become the fourth.

This is why the Tetragrammaton is holy. This is why the higher name of God is יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei; notwithstanding, if you observe there are only three letters in its name because the second letter, the ה Hei is repeated as fourth in order to indicate that the unity of the three is always found in the Hei, which is the Mother, the Holy Spirit. Thus, in us, the fourth letter, the Hei of Iod Hei Vav Hei, is the physical body.

Likewise, when you work in the annihilation of the ego, if you analyze, there are always three forces working there.  So, each force assists the other, helps the other. That is why Samael Aun Weor stated that there are not two factors but three, and you have to work with the three all the time. We have to work with three in different ways because the three create, yet the three forces also destroy when you know how to apply them. When the positive (male) and negative (female) are united, they utilize the third, the force of sex, in order to destroy what we need to destroy: the ego.

So all the work of the four is a work of Alchemy, and this is why the first four lines of the Conjuration of the Four (which is in Latin) read:

Caput mortum, imperet tibi dominus per vivum et devotum serpentem!

Cherub, imperet tibi Dominus per Adam Iod-Chavah!

Aquila errans, imperet tibi Dominus per alas tauri!

Serpens, imperet tibi Dominus Tetragrammaton, per Angelum et Leonem!

The four holy creatures are named in these four lines.

Who is Adam Iod-Chavah? Adam Iod-Chavah represents Adam who works with the power of Iod Hei Vav Hei, because this is how it is written in Hebrew: Adam Iod-Chavah. Iod Hei Vav Hei is the name Iod-Chavah.

The creature called “alas tauri” (the spirit of the earth) is the winged bull.

“Per Angelum et Leonem” - Angelum represents the man, Adam, the water. Leonem is the lion, the fire.

Always understand that these forces are the four elements in one, as for instance, in the four sides of the pyramids of Egypt, and the sphinx of Egypt, which has these four symbols: the face of a human being (the water), the wings of an eagle (air), the paws of a lion (fire), and the hoofs of the bull or the ox (earth). These same symbols you can see in the book of Ezekiel in the four holy creatures that we are naming here. So the sphinx is a symbol related with the forces of nature. Anybody who enters into this path connects with the temple of Egypt in order to resolve the enigma of the sphinx, which is the enigma of the human being that we have to develop inside through Alchemy.

This conjuration has to be done before any work of alchemy, especially sexual alchemy, or any work of magic related with the three forces of the third triangle of priesthood: Hermetic magic, ritualistic magic, and Sexual Magic.  In this way, we are assisted by the Tetragram.

The conjuration has to be memorized in order for us to do it.

You might ask, why do I have to pronounce it in Latin when I could do it in English? The answer is that Latin is a mantric language but English is not. Latin exercises power over nature; it is a beautiful language, and that is why Latin was adopted by the Catholic Church in order to do masses, but they lost power and started doing everything in another language.  Sanskrit is also a mantric language. Hebrew is another mantric language. But English, Spanish, French, etc. are not. We must utter the main conjurations in Latin in order to invoke the superior forces.

So the first conjuration says, “Caput mortum,” which means corpse’s head. Adonai command thee by the living and votive serpent.

Dominus in Latin means the lord but the lord is Adonai, Adony in Hebrew . So the translation is;

Corpse’s head, may the living and devoted serpent Adonia אֲדֹנִיָּ command thee!

Cherub, may Adonia אֲדֹנִיָּ command thee by Adam Iod-ChaVah יחוה אדם!

Wandering Eagle, may Adonia אֲדֹנִיָּ command thee by the wings of the Bull!

Serpent, may Adonia אֲדֹנִיָּ the Tetragrammaton יהוה command thee by the angel and the lion!

Now you know why we say “Dominus” which is a Latin word for Adonai. Adonai is Hebrew for “the lord” in English. So when saying the lord you know it is the lord but it is better to say Adonai because it is a Hebrew mantric word. If you say Dominus then this would also be good.

Dominus Tetragrammaton means "Adonai the Tetragrammaton," because Adonai is written with four letters, which are Aleph, Daleth, Nun, and Iod. Adonai ends with Iod, while Iod Hei Vav Hei begins with Iod, which has deep significance. The lord from above (Iod Hei Vav Hei, Iod-Chavah) begins with Iod and ends with the “Hei” in Malkuth, whose feminine name is Adonai, a name that ends with Iod. So the letter Iod represents the beginning of the forces of Iod-Chavah יהוה in Kether, which end in Malkuth. This is why the letter “Iod” is shown at the very end of the name Adonai אֲדֹנִיָּ.

So after that you name:

Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Anael

So for the explanation of this, we need to go into the Pentagrammaton, because also in this conjuration you name the pentagram, which is the five pointed star.

the pentagram

We find on the left arm of the pentagram the name Adam which is Aleph, Daleth and final Mem. On the right is Iod Hei Vav Hei, which is read Iod-Chavah, and is written or translated in the bible as Jehovah, but the right pronunciation is Iod-Chavah. Adam Iod-Chavah is always above. So when you are naming Adam Iod-Chavah in the Conjuration of the Four, you are attracting the superior forces of the pentagram, which symbolizes the Cosmic Christ.

So this is why that conjuration is very magical, very powerful. It has a lot of force if you are an alchemist, because when you pronounce it you are utilizing the four forces of the elements in your body.

Remember that you are utilizing the four elemental forces: fire, air, water (three brains), and earth (your physical body) below, that should become one with Adam Iod-Chavah from above. In other words, Adam Iod-Chavah - as we already explained - represents the twelve zodiacal forces from above. Now you know why there are twelve tribes of Israel, because these twelve Archetypes relate to the Tetragram יהוה in three worlds Yetzirah, Briah, and Atziluth. Three by four is twelve.

Yet down here in the earth, in the physical body, we also have the twelve forces, the twelve archetypes.  If you read any horoscope, you will see how the twelve zodiacal signs relate to different parts of your body. So that is why the twelve below relates to אֲדֹנִיָּ Adonai, and the twelve above to יהוה Iod-Chavah, which make the addition of twenty four. These have to be in union within the alchemist.

We are explaining the Kabbalistic meaning, but you need to be an alchemist to exercise power. To be an alchemist is to work with the three factors of the revolution of the Consciousness, because how are the salamanders of fire going to obey you in your body and in nature if you are easily angered, having no control of your fire? How are you going to command the gnomes of the earth if you are lazy? The gnomes of the earth are diligent, but if you are lazy they won’t obey you, because they obey the one who has power over them. They are diligent, so how is a lazy person going to command them, by yawning? The sylphs of the air, which control the clouds, the forces of the mind - how are you going to control them if you can’t control your mind, if you easily identify with your lustful thoughts or with your fantasies? How are you going to command the undines of the water if you don’t control your own sexual waters?

So, alchemically speaking, you have to exercise control of your three brains, because the water is in the sex, the fire is in the heart, the air is in your mind, and you are representing Adam, who was made out of the dust of the earth. We are a symbol of the earth, Malkuth, in which we find the three brains. Behold the magical force of the three factors of the revolution of the Consciousness.

When you enter into meditation, you pacify your earth (your physicality), control your water (your sex), your fire (emotions), and start to control the air (your mind) in order for your Adam (your consciousness) to go beyond matter. When the Consciousness in Meditation goes out of the body, it is because that Buddha-dhātu has controlled the earth, the fire, the air, and the water; this is how it goes out.

If during meditation you are a slave of any of those elements, you cannot experience any Samadhi. Remember it is the Consciousness that has to control that. This is why Tiphereth, the Sephirah above Netzach, represents the Consciousness, which is the human will that has to control the forces of nature.

But, how do you do it? Listen, in the middle of the pentagram are the symbols of the four elements. It is easy to see when you use your intuition and your mind.

On the left leg of the pentagram (not your left side but the left of the pentagram) is a moon, which symbolises the forces of Gabriel, the angel of the moon. On the right leg or the right part of the chest (because it is not really the leg but the chest) is the symbol of the sun' which is Michael. So in Alchemy you always name Michael and Gabriel, and these are the two polarities, the sulfur and the water, which you have to work with.

Below, in the very middle of the pentagram, you find the sign of mercury, which is a circle with a cross below and the moon above. That is Raphael, which symbolizes the mercury in different steps.


Alchemically speaking, mercury exists in three forms: brute, soul, and fecundated mercury. In order to put any of these three types of mercury into activity, you need the forces of Venus. That is why below the symbol of mercury you find the caduceus of mercury, which makes the basis of the cross: the wings form the horizontal line, and the caduceus is the vertical line.


The caduceus forms a circle with a cross, the symbol of Venus; indeed, we call it the caduceus of mercury, yet, in order for that caduceus of mercury to work, we need the forces of Venus, which are the forces of Anael.  

Remember that we name Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Anael, four angels related with the four forces. This is why you find those symbols in the very middle of the pentagram.

In another lecture, we stated that when some “Gnostics” perform the sign of the five-pointed star (the Microcosmic Star), they end it with their crossed hands down over their sexual organs, and they do not raise their hands to their hearts. This means symbolically that they are not working with alchemy. This means symbolically that they do not know anything about priesthood or about magic, because all the power of magic and priesthood emerges when you elevate your mercury by means of the Venustic cross (Sexual Magic), symbolized by the crossed hands (wings) over the sexual organs, which must be elevated towards our heart, because the heart relates to Tiphereth (the Malachim, the Angel), the Wiseman (the King) who is doing the alchemical work.

In order to elevate the mercury, we have to perform alchemy, in order to acquire the forces of the elements. Michael, the Sun, the fire, which is sulfur. Gabriel is the Moon, which is the water. Raphael is the Air, Mercury and the three types of mercury. Anael is Venus, the voluptuousness of the Nun (the fish) within the two crossed waters.

You find also that salt, sulfur, and mercury are elements that are combined in four different aspects. Fixed salt (earth) is in the sulfur (fire). Salt is in the water. You have to elevate the air, the spirit of the earth, the volatile salt, in order to create with Azoth other bodies inside of you, etc. We are not going to go deep into this today.

The Fermentation of the Leaven

Understand that the four creatures of the Tetragram are in the middle of the Pentagram, the Man. This is why you read in Matthew 13:33 the following:

Another parable spoke Jesus unto them: The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven (yeast), which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal (wheat flour), till the whole was fermented.

Do you understand this? Do you grasp what Jesus said? I would like to ask all those preachers why Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven is similar to a woman that hid yeast into three measures of wheat flour until it became fermented. Only by knowing Alchemy and by using our head and our common sense we will understand.

Why a woman? Why not a man? Because a woman - as we explained in many lectures - represents the Sephirah Malkuth; we have also said that Malkuth is feminine. First, on the path of the Self-realization of the Being, you need to have a physical body, and if you are a man, you need to have a woman. This woman symbolizes different aspects.


Christianity talks about three Marys, which are Mary the wife of the Holy Spirit, Mary the Mother Nature, and Mary the Sister, the Hebrew letter נ Nun. We have to work alchemically with these three aspects.

The woman is the letter נ Nun. Any woman is filled with “yeast,” leaven. What does the woman do with that “yeast” in her body? Well, if a man comes and puts his seed - which in this case will be the wheat (remember the lecture of the letter Hei or remember the lecture of the letter Nun the fish (sperm) if you want; even the word Adonai has the letter Nun) - if a man puts his seed (“wheat”) into into the womb (the letter Hei) of a woman, then because of her “yeast” her belly will “rise,” and after nine months she will be very inflated (pregnant). In other words, those elements will ferment - alchemically and physically speaking.

Some people are inflated with pride; others grow a belly because they are gluttons. These are wrong fermentations.  

The belly that a woman develops when pregnant is the outcome of the “yeast” of her body, which symbolizes what Jesus said in Matthew 13:33. But we, men, have our own “woman” (sister, the letter Nun); we are talking about Alchemy and the four elements that we have to develop inside.

As a man, I need a woman, because I need the yeast that she hides within her three brains and within her own nature, in order to develop, in order to ferment my own yeast.

In this moment is coming into my mind something that Samael Aun Weor said:

During the times of the end, many will think that I have disincarnated, yet it will not be like that. I will just have to remain absent so that the leaven can ferment. It is necessary to give time, so that those who have received the Gnostic doctrine can work on themselves.

The fermentation that he is talking about is the alchemical work, because he taught Alchemy in all of his books. He wants to see if the seed he planted, the wheat that he gave, is going to ferment in those who practice sexual Alchemy.

Fermentation is a sexual, alchemical process whereby electrons are released from the brute mercury and are automatically transferred to the soul of the mercury, obtained from the transmutation of the same brute mercury, which originates mercury fecundated by sulfur or the arousing of the creative energy, Chi or Kundalini, which originates the creation of the solar bodies.


Fermentation is the act of sexual alchemy. You begin to work with your wheat and your yeast. That is the first step, because you need to make bread, the miracle the multiplication of bread within you. In order to perform that, you need fish, because how are you going to multiply the bread within you, if you don’t have the fish, if you don’t have the letter Nun?

The firmament below stands upon [Ezekiel's] four living creatures [Lion, Ox, Eagle, Adam], the four living creatures within Malkuth [physical body], the secret of Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Nuriel. From where this firmament extends and takes a female form, Malkuth [Adonia], at the back of the male, Zauir Anpin. 

This is the esoteric meaning of Exodus 33: 23: “And I will take away mine hand, and you shall see my back", meaning that the Tree of Knowledge (the Caduceus of Mercury) is at the back of the Tree of Life.

As it is written in Psalm 139:5: “You have formed me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me" which refers to Adam in the front and Eve in the back.

As it is similarly written in Genesis 2:21: "and he took one of his (trees or bones, עצם) ribs (צלע),” referring to Zauir Anpin (Adam) and Malkuth (Eve), that were doubled-faced, front and back (Yesod-Malkuth), and they were separated. - Zohar

That is why in the Kabbalah, the Zohar, the Alchemists or the Kabbalists name the angels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Nuriel. Nuriel is a name taken from the basis of Uriel, the archangel of Venus, with the letter Nun. Thus, Nuriel is the Nun before Uriel, the Nun (the sperm) in your sexual force which is Venus, the Ens Veneris or sexual energy within the Nun (fish in Aramaic).

When you transmute the Nuriel, the Nun (the light of God within the sperm) of your sexual force, and sublimate it towards your heart, then Nuriel becomes Uriel, which means “the light of God,” the positive light ray of Venus: Anael, the angel of love. This is why in the conjuration says Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Anael.

Anael, Uriel, and Nuriel are the same light force of Venus. We have to work with Venus. Remember that Venus mythologically speaking was born from the foam of the ocean when Saturn (Binah) with his scythe castrated Uranus, his father. Thus, Uranus’ severed testicles fell into the ocean and fertilized the waters. Uranus (Urania) is heaven. Uranus governs the genitalia, the forces of sex. Saturn cut the forces of sex or the forces of Uranus. Saturn-Binah did that, and who is Uranus? He is Chokmah, the Christ. From the blood (fire) that fell into the ocean (water) emerged a foam, a feminine form, Aphrodite (literally, “born of sea foam”) or Venus, the force of love, the Kundalini. The meaning of the myth is an alchemical statement that we have to perform. Venus is the force of love. The Kundalini has to be born within us.

Samael Aun Weor stated that when a woman and a man are united in the sexual act, they form the three primary forces (Kether, Chokmah and Binah), and if they transmute their brute mercury (the semen - in both sexes - within which swims the Nun of Nuriel, the sperm and the ovum) they liberate Venus, Uriel (the electrons, the solar force of the Nun) by means of their will (Thelema), which they have to exercise. This is precisely Uranus being castrated by Saturn. Thus, the solar forces go into the ocean (Yesod to Binah) by means of the willpower (scythe) that we have to utilize in order not to spill the sexual force, so that the soul of the mercury (the light of God, Uriel) can arise through Ida and Pingala, the two serpents that you see in the caduceus of mercury.

So in both cases, whether as a single person or a married couple, you can do this, up to this point. However, when the married couple are accumulating a lot of “soul of the mercury” (which is the light of God, Uriel liberated from the Nun, of Nuriel, the brute mercury) the transmutation of such mercury is the fermentation, alchemically speaking. Eventually, that fire liberated in the sexual act, that electric force, will fecundate the soul of the mercury (the light of God, Uriel) which has been accumulated through many transmutations through our Ida and Pingala and will eventually awaken the Kundalini (the soul of mercury fecundated by fire) which is the positive ray of Venus, the force of love, Anael in our spinal column. This can only be accomplished by a man and woman working together with the powers of love.

Its father is the Sun (Michael), its mother is the Moon (Gabriel), the Wind (Raphael) carried it in its belly (or Caduceus of Mercury), its nurse is the (spirituous of the Nun, the Salt of the) earth (the Ens Veneris, Venus - Anael), the mother (the Nun) of all perfection is here. – Emerald Tablet by Hermes Trismegistus

This is the meaning found there in the middle of the pentagram, which is telling us that in order to have the power of the Tetragram (Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel or Anael) we have to work with the four elements, in order to make our own bread.  You now know why you need the physical body, represented by a woman, in order to make bread, in order to ferment the flour. Also, if you are a man, you need a wife in order to ferment your own flour because she hides the yeast.  

If you make bread, what do you need? An oven! Who has that oven? The woman has the oven, which is her womb. Within her womb she hides the mystery of the yeast. Yet within her oven she needs a lot of fire, thus in order to get such a fire she needs a man, because the fire is made by the horizontal and vertical beams. The horizontal and vertical beams together make INRI. INRI means: Fire Renews Nature Incessantly. The cross represents the sexual act. This is why Christ (Chokmah - Uranus) is crucified there, he is crucified in the four elements, because he does the work there. Sequentially, in order to amass the dough that will become bread, you need the fiery water of your sexual force. You need wheat, which is your seed, which is also the same letter Nun, which is the fish.

And there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it (the Nun), let him receive it. - Matthew 19: 12

So when you are making the dough, you have to put enough yeast (air) in it in order to make the dough, the bread to rise. So, water, earth, fire, and the air which will raise the bread, these are the four elements. Who does such multiplication or fermentation? It is done by the lord, the Inner Jesus (Ieshua the Son of Nun).

It is written in the gospel of Matthew 14:13-21

When Jesus heard of it (the beheading of John the Baptist), he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.  And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

But Jesus said unto them, they need not depart; give ye them to eat.

And they say unto him, we have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

He said, bring them hither to me. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

The multitude needed to eat the bread of heaven, thus Jesus gave it to them from the heart; Jesus was in the middle because he is Tiphereth. Tiphereth is the Son of Man who is in the middle of the Tree of Life; Tiphereth parts the bread and feed the ones on the left and the ones on the right.

This is how the miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish is done. Yes, without the fish (the Nun of Nuriel) you cannot perform that alchemical work, which we see precisely in this beautiful graphic.


Where is the Lord, the Son of Man? In the oven, which has a shape similar to a vagina; Tiphereth has to enter into Malkuth, because Tiphereth represents the forces of the Son of Man which enter into Malkuth, the woman, the physical body.

From there he is multiplying the bread and the fish. The two fish represent the polarities: man and woman. The five loaves of bread represent five internal bodies, because in order to reach Tiphereth, you have to have the five crucified: Malkuth, Yesod, Hod, Netzach, and Tiphereth, who is the Son of Man. On another occasion, Jesus said unto them,

How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full. And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children. – Matthew 15: 34-38

Here when Jesus asked how many loaves do you have? They said seven. These seven represent the seven serpents: Malkuth, Yesod, Hod, Netzach, Tiphereth, Geburah, and Chesed. Whether it is five or seven, this is how you make the miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish.

Jesus made that marvelous multiplication of bread, where he fed five thousand men (without counting women and children) through Tiphereth. In other words, through willpower he put all those multitudes in the fourth dimension, because it is in Yesod, sex, where the Bodhisattva performs the miracle. Samael Aun Weor explained that Master Jesus performed that miracle in Yesod, the world of the fourth dimension, although when you read that and you are not using alchemical and Kabbalistic mentality, you are just thinking of the miracle of going into the fourth dimension and feeding a lot of people; but think and analyze: the fourth dimension is Yesod, and Yesod is sex. So Tiphereth the Son of Man performed that miracle in Yesod, the force of sex. Thus, any Alchemist who performs the multiplication of bread and fish nourishes his heart and mind with wisdom.

Did you know that in accordance with religion there are two types of bread? These are the leavened and unleavened bread. Unleavened bread is the bread that we eat when we are in Malkuth, when we are in tribulation; it is made with wheat only, without leaven (yeast). The bread from heaven has leaven, yeast, thus when you eat it, it has more taste; that is the bread that the Israelites ate in the wilderness, yet they ate the unleavened bread in Egypt, when they were in tribulation; Everybody eats unleavened bread when in tribulation.

When you go into the bible and read the scriptures, there is wisdom within, yet because you do not know alchemy or Kabbalah, you just eat unleavened bread, since you do not know the meaning of it. If you are a practical alchemist, then that bread turns into the bread of heaven, which has yeast. The alchemist discovers the hidden yeast in his woman, who represents the woman who “took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was fermented;” and he says, “I am going to take her yeast so that I can make with her my own bread in my own oven,” which is the great miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish. This is why after that miracle, the disciples of Jesus (who represent those who know alchemy, those who know the mystery of Daath, the mystery of transmutation) states the gospel of Matthew:

Were come (from Tiphereth) to the other side (Malkuth), they had forgotten to take bread. Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. and they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? How is it that ye do not understand that I spoke it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. - Matthew 16:5-12

Jesus’ disciples are with him in Tiphereth but they went to the other side. If you do not know Kabbalah you do not know what “the other side” is. The right side of the Tree of Life is the side of mercy, and the other side is justice, which goes down to Malkuth. This is from Tiphereth to Malkuth, because the winged bull goes from Binah down to Malkuth. In other words, they come from “the east,” which is Tiphereth, and went into “the west” which is the physical world. Here we are in this physical world; we bring into the physical world the wisdom of Tiphereth, which is the wisdom of the Son of Man, which is the other side, the west.

Here in the west Master Jesus says, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees” then later it is stated, “he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.” The Pharisees are related with what we call the intermediate mind (the emotional mind, the fanatic mind) related with beliefs, dogmas in the physical world. On this side, the west, there are a lot of Pharisees and also Sadducees which relates with the mind, the sensual mind, the intellectual mind that read the scriptures literally and do not know the meaning of it.  So in this physical world we have to be aware of that, as there are a lot of people who interpret scriptures according to their level of mind, according to their sensual mind, traditions, and fanaticism.

You have to develop your own internal mind, which is developed through the three factors of the revolution of the Consciousness:

This is how, little by little, your internal mind will awaken, develop, because it is related with the psyche, the soul.

The Three Kings

This is why the three wise men visit the Lord when he is born. There are three, not four; the first is a black, the second is white, and the third is yellow. Those three wise men do not relate to any root race or any sub-race in this physical world. They represent an alchemical symbol that relates to the three steps that we have to walk internally and alchemically speaking.

678In the beginning, we are black, because we have a lot of ego; this means - alchemically speaking – that you have to reach the level of Tiphereth, because Tiphereth is called Malachim, which in Hebrew means angel, someone who has reached the fifth initiation of Major Mysteries. A Malachim is a human being in the complete sense of the word. It is the one that utilizes the Conjuration of the Four a lot because he has a lot of negativity within himself but he is a king, a master, but is black or a hasnamuss, who is the one who has a lot of white and a lot of black inside. Do not mistake this hasnamuss with those who awaken in evil and for evil, because there are many types of hasnamussen. Those that awaken in evil and for evil are completely black and are not obeying the Lord, but the one who reaches the fifth initiation is a hasnamuss because still has the ego inside.  The black hasnamuss has the ego but also the solar forces; he wants to become white like the light and in order to do that he has to work very hard in the annihilation of his own ego.

The white king is not a hasnamuss. The white wise man is represented in the bible by King David, while the black king is represented by Saul, the first king of Israel, who was anointed by Iod-Chavah but he only killed one thousand egos, while David killed ten thousand. How did David kill ten thousand? If you want to know this, you will need to read the book The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor. David performed the thirteen repentances. If you read carefully The Pistis Sophia, a book written by Master Jesus and later unveiled by Master Samael, you will see how each one of the thirteen repentances is recited or compared with a psalm of David.  David represents the white priesthood, the white magician, the white magi, the white wise man. He is the one who is fulfilling the will of his God, but he does it through thirteen repentances. Every apostle says in every single repentance: “oh Lord” - addressing the master Jesus – “this repentance that you have uttered is what David said in the psalm such and such;” so, David represents the white king who is performing death and resurrection.

Another Malachim, eventually, the yellow one, will appear, who is Solomon (“the solar man”) who is the son of David.   David was not the son of Saul (who was something else, a mixture of ego with knowledge) yet David had a son with Bathsheba (his twin soul) who gave birth to Solomon, the soli-man, the solar man, the third king, the yellow king. This is why everything related with Solomon was gold, the symbol of the third wise man.

The three wise men represent three steps of Alchemy that we have to perform. In each step we have to control the forces of nature by allowing the forces of Godly nature to guide us.  We begin from the very bottom until we reach the level of Solomon, who has that wisdom within. That wisdom in Hebrew is Chokmah: Christ incarnated.

The master Samael Aun Weor is now at the level of Solomon. He is a solar man, but during his alchemical work, when I meet him physically in Mexico, he was a white king, yet before developing the white king within himself, he was a black king, still with ego, as he stated:

In that forgone epoch of my present existence, I had not even died within myself. I was still with my ego very much alive. That sepulchre was then merely symbolic, as the coffin of every Masonic lodge. - The Three Mountains

We know that in order to go through these three steps, we have to overcome the four ordeals of the elements, the ordeals of fire, water, air, and earth.

Do not fall into the mistake of reading literally The Perfect Matrimony, where the Master states that in the beginning the neophyte passes the four ordeals. Some think, “Oh yeah, I have passed them already; I am now in the major initiations, thus I do no longer have to face the ordeals of fire, water, air, and earth.” Listen, the ordeals are always repeated, but in different levels; yes, you always face the ordeals of the elements in different levels. They relate to the different ordeals that the initiate has to pass through, and all of them are in relation to Sexual Magic.


This graphic is from Tibet. It is the Kalachakra. It is a symbol of Sexual Magic. The earth is at the very bottom, together with the water, and above is the air, and the couple is surrounded by fire. These are the four elements represented in the four faces of the deity, who is taking the yeast from the woman – sexually, alchemically speaking - in order to make the bread of wisdom.  Above them you find two forces represented by the sun and the moon, the man and the woman; this is precisely the symbol of alchemy. So, you find the marvelous doctrine of alchemy with the four elements everywhere. It is not something that belongs to the Gnostics . Tantric Buddhism knows about it and every genuine Tantric initiate works with it.  

The outcome of Alchemy is not just to become as many people think, “a magician,” in order to control the forces and to show off. Alchemy is something that you have to perform within in order to be self-realized. Magical phenomena come as an addition, when you are developed, yet the main purpose is the development and controlling of the inferior forces within, by manipulating the twelve forces from above and the twelve forces from below. Remember the twelve from above relates to the Tetragram in three worlds, and below to the twelve archetypes that we have within, the Tetragram and the three brains.

Man and woman unite alchemically in order to make the miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish, and this is why in the gospel of Mark 8:13-21, it is written:

And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side. Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

When people read these verses in the bible they might interpret them according to their Pharisee mind or Sadducee mind. So be aware of that leaven, because with it they make the wrong bread, which is not the bread of wisdom.  You find in this day and age people who put such yeast or leaven into their whims (wheat flour) and with that dough they elaborate their bread; thereafter they go and teach on Sundays. With that fake leaven they interpret what is written in the bible according to their own whims. Yet, remember that the leaven which multiples the bread is in the heart with the Son of Man; and Tiphereth does it through the three types of priesthood.

Through the Eucharist, the Son of Man also performs the multiplication of the bread of wisdom that bread enters into your psyche, thus you develop knowledge, and that knowledge is precisely what we teach.

In the beginning it is very difficult for students to understand, as many people say, “Our lectures are from the clouds above;” and we say, you need to eat that bread and drink that wine of transubstantiation. Jesus made those miracles of Alchemy with the multitudes. So drink the wine of the weddings of Cana, eat the bread of Alchemy, and multiply your fish, because you have a lot of fish (sperm and ovum) in your sexual organs; as Jesus you have yeast (spirit) as well, thus, if you know how to do Alchemy, bread will multiply within you and you will learn and teach; this is how you will understand. There is a lot of that bread of wisdom in the bible (whether in the old or new testament) and in the Koran or any sacred book, but you have to know how to see the yeast or the spirit of the doctrine, and for that you need to be an alchemist.

AlchemicalTetragramThis is why the conjuration says:

Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Anael!

Fluat udor per Spiritum Elohim

Fluat udor per Spiritum Elohim means “Flow, perfume, by the Ruach Elohim (אלוהים רוח).” The Spiritum Elohim in the bible is the Ruach Elohim or the Spirit, the yeast of the Elohim. The perfume of the Spirit of the Elohim flows when you are transmuting your Genesic waters. Remember the Ruach or the Spirit or the Spiritum of the Elohim is your own Chesed, your own lion, that is fecundating the waters, because when that fire of Michael fecundates the waters, then the perfume of the sexual transmutation flows into the spinal column.

The conjuration continues:

Manet in terra per Adam Iod-Chavah!

“Be established in the earth by Adam Iod-Chavah!” Again we are naming here the Tetragrammaton.  In this phrase we are establishing (awakening) Iod Hei Vav Hei (which is pronounced Iod-Chavah) in Malkuth. Remember that we are controlling the fires of Adam Iod-Chavah (written on the two arms of the pentagram) with our will (Mars) in order to transmute and to establish those forces in our own earth (Malkuth) which is our terra, our physicality.

Fiat firmamentum per Iod-HaVah-Sabaoth.

“Spread the firmament by Iod-Chavah-Sabbaoth.” Who is Iod-Chavah-Sabbaoth? Iod-Chavah Sabbaoth is the sacred name of God in the mind, in Netzach. In other words, we are spreading the firmament from our sex to our head by controlling the forces of the air (the yeast, the soul of the mercury) by the forces of the holy name of God in Netzach.

Fiat judicium per ignem in virtute Michael!

“Fulfil the judgement by fire by the virtue of Michael.” Michael is the king of fire, sulfur, the king of the sun, Tiphereth, the heart. Judgement comes from the left side of the Tree of Life which is called Geburah. When Geburah (the fiery serpent) finally comes into our heart or the forces of the serpent are tempting us, we have to say Fiat judicium per ignem in virtute Michael!

Angel of the blind eyes, obey or pass away with this holy water!

What holy water are we talking about? Alchemically speaking it is the sexual water that we are transmuting. The Angel of the blind eyes is the angel or the forces of Yesod which act mechanically and that we are wisely, consciously controlling by means of our own will, by the virtue of Michael, the king of fire.

Work winged bull, or revert to the earth, unless thou wilt that I should pierce thee with this sword!

The winged bull is related with the forces of our body, and is in relation with the salt of our body that we have to control and sublimate. The sword is the Kundalini that we are developing in our spinal column. When we talk about the sword alchemically or Kabbalistically speaking, it is related with the holy name of God Iod Hei Vav Hei. Iod is either the grip of the sword or the tip of the blade of the sword. Vav is the long, straight curved blade of the sword the length of the sword. The two sharp edges of the sword are the two letters Hei. So Iod Hei Vav Hei is the sword. So when you are saying “Work winged bull, or revert to the earth, unless thou wilt that I should pierce thee with this sword,” that sword is the Tetragrammaton itself, Iod Hei Vav Hei.

Chained eagle, obey my sign, or fly before this breathing!

The chained eagle are those thoughts which are chained to desire, those thoughts which we cannot control but we control them whether in ourselves or in others by the sign of the cross and the four sides of the cross are Iod Hei Vav Hei, the Tetragram again.

When we say “Or fly before this breathing” we blow air because that is the air and you make the sign of the cross with your breath. You make one vertical line with your breath and one horizontal and this is how we control the air. This is a magical conjuration indeed.

Writhing serpent, crawl at my feet or be tortured by the sacred fire and give way before the perfumes that I burn in it!

That writhing serpent is the serpent that writhes on its belly in the dust of the earth, the serpent of fornication, the Kundabuffer organ, the passionate fire that we are a slave of and that we need to control in order to not spill the fiery sexual water.

“Give way before the perfumes that I burn in it.” What perfumes do we burn and in what fire? These are the perfumes that flow by the Ruach Elohim in the sexual act. We burn them with the fires of transmutation; we burn the perfumes there in the fire of the sexual act.

Water, return to water! Fire, burn! Air, circulate! Earth, revert to earth! By virtue of the pentagram, which is the morning star and by the name of the Tetragram, which is written in the centre of the cross of light.

Again, by controlling the four elements within and without us, we are exercising power over them by virtue of the pentagram, the morning star, the star of Venus. The whole pentagram is the outcome of the Tetragrammaton, which alchemically is in the centre of the pentagram; we work with the Tetragram, with the four angels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Anael. Remember by elevating the light of Nun of Nuriel, it becomes Uriel (the light of God), who is represented in the angel of love Anael.

That Tetragram is related with INRI, the fire, or it could be related with Adonai as well or it could be Iod-Chavah, because the Tetragram is related to the Conjuration of the Four.

Amen, Amen, Amen.

So now you understand why this Conjuration of the Four is almighty. Any time that you are going to perform Sexual Magic, alchemy, or any kind of priesthood, namely, Sexual Magic, hermetic magic, or ceremonial magic, you have to exercise power over the elementals. We must pronounce the Conjuration of the Four very mightily, with a lot of strength, yet, remember that strength comes from your sexual strength.  Thus, we have to be an alchemist, because if you are a fornicator and you pronounce this conjuration, the elementals will say, “Why should we obey him? He is a slave of the earth, a slave of the air, of the fire, the water.”

So first we have to control our elemental forces then we can exercise power over the elements. That is the Conjuration of the Four, and remember it has effect in accordance to our own level of Alchemy.
