Spiritual Self-Defense, III

Díyáfat-i-‘Izzat, the Feast of Might

It is also advisable to seal your aura. Stand upright and cross yourself; your left hand is laid flat on your body below the breast, then with the first and second fingers of your right hand touch first your forehead, then your breast just below your left hand, then your right shoulder, and lastly, your left shoulder. Now invoke the Holy Maiden with these words: “By the power of the Most Luminous within me (extend your hands forward as far as you can reach at the level of the solar plexus, fingertips together, then sweep them round to the back and touch your fingertips together again behind you), I encompass myself about with the divine circle of her protection, across which no mortal error dares to set its foot.” This invocation is considered very effectual, but is believed to last only for about four hours.
