The tetragrammaton, like all things in the Torah and Bible, is a corruption of ancient esoteric knowledge meant for the ascension of the human soul. As we all know, alchemical knowledge was historically encoded in mythical allegories so that only those possessing the necessary occult insight can decode it and make use of it, while remaining useless to the uninitiated. It is no different even with Abrahamic scripture, which is full of esoteric allegories stolen from the original Aryan mystery traditions. Now, the term “God” refers to atman, the soul. The tetragrammaton–the fourfold name of God–is actually a word of power meant to be vibrated into the soul so as to raise its energies to a high level. The invoking of the quarters traditionally performed before Western hermetic rituals is an allegory for this. The real tetragrammaton, in this case, is the combination of vowels I-O-E-A. We can break this down into two more words of power: “IO” relates to the male and female energies (the sexual symbolism of the letters I and O being rather obvious) and is the name of a Greek goddess who would be the direct ancestor of the demigod Hercules, who would go on to set free Prometheus, while “EA” is both a name of Lucifer–the creator god of mankind and earthbound representative of the Dark Ones–as well as an approximation of the German “Heilige” and the Greek “Agios”. The intersection of these two words of power and their relation to the four quarters connects directly to the Holy Swastika, which is a symbol of the Sun (which was worshipped in mankind’s original religions) as well as a representation of the human soul when properly aligned.
To properly use this word of power, one must first vibrate IO, focusing on the right side of the body during ‘EEEE’ and then the left side of the body during ‘OOOH’. One then vibrates EA, focusing on the front of the body during ‘EEEH’ and then the entire spine during ‘AAAH’. Again, this relates to the invoking of the four quarters and elements:
-The front of the body is the north, ruled by earth;
-The back of the body is the south, ruled by fire;
-The left side of the body is the west, ruled by water;
-The right side of the body is the east, ruled by air;
-The aura is the center, ruled by quintessence.
Now, the human soul is a combination of all five of these elements, whereas most astral beings are made up of just one or two. By vibrating this fourfold word of power, the energies of the soul–masculous and muliebral, plus the five elements (adding up to the divine 7)–are balanced and raised to very high levels.
Compared to this, the conventional, ritualized methods of invoking the quarters within Western occult tradition (tracing elemental pentagrams, calling forth deities, etc.) are tame and impotent. All ritual is allegorical and meant to give an outer form to certain inner spiritual processes–again, this is the encoding of alchemical secrets I mentioned earlier. The ritual forms are simply intimations of more advanced types of working; without an initiated understanding of what those ritual forms are supposed to mean, one cannot progress any further than those hollow ritual forms. Furthermore, all ritual forms are merely indirect methods of working with the aura and chakras, and may be bypassed entirely through meditation and sonic vibration. The aspect of vibration here is significant–the aura is particularly responsive to certain types of sound waves of the correct intensity, and by way of chant we can actually modify the makeup of the soul, on both a causal and acausal level.
This, in truth, is the function and meaning of the “tetragrammaton”–it is not literally the four-letteted name of God, as Abrahamic tradition would have us believe, but rather a word of power meant to seriously aid the process of spiritual ascension. It is appropriate to the four quarters and elements, and serves to align one with those energies and drastically increase them as they exist within the human organism. One may do away entirely with unnecessary ritual forms when are equipped with the correct esoteric knowledge that is symbolized by said forms–and in this case, by possessing an initiated understanding of what the tetragrammaton is and how it relates to the elements, one can hotwire ritual processes and work directly with their own energies.
