By every name that You have been called
I hail You
As Your sharp eyes can pierce the deepest blackness
May I see what You see
As Your keen ears detect the subtlest vibration
May I hear what You hear
As Your nose picks up the faintest scent
May all my scents be heightened.
Anubis, Opener of the Way
Open the door inside my mind
Open the door inside my heart
Open the door inside my soul
May the scales fall from my eyes
May the doors of perception be burst open
May I be made aware of the invisible world around me –
Of the spirits that surround us at all times,
The Gods that walk the earth,
The nymphs and genius loci, the vaetiar and faerie,
The restless dead and those-who-have-no-names.
May I sense and see the numinous all around,
And partake in the mystery that passes others by.
Anubis, Opener of the Way, Guardian of the Necropolis,
I hail You under a guise, a new incarnation –
I name You the Keeper of Secrets and God of Shamanism.
