Is there a difference between rosaries and invocations? No, besides the name there is no difference. They have the same function and the same effect. And rosaries are definitely not only for people from a Catholic background.
Giving an invocation is easy to do. You simply read it aloud. Obviously, you can read the invocation right from your computer, but most people prefer to print the rosary. In our STORE you can purchase ebooks with the invocations and decrees, which makes it possible for you to store them on your smart phone or ebook reader, meaning you can carry them anywhere.
Be aware that for many spiritual people, speaking an invocation aloud might require a bit of an adjustment. The reason is that many of us are so used to meditating in silence. Yet once you decide to give it a sincere try, you will likely find that you quickly get used to it. The best motivation for continuing to give invocations is that you experience that they work. You will often be amazed at how much more light you can invoke through the spoken word compared to silent meditation (not to say that silent meditation is not useful; it is simply that the spoken word is a very powerful force).
Where do I give an invocation?
You can do it anywhere, but most people prefer to sit in a private, quiet room, where they can remain undisturbed for the 20 or more minutes it takes to give a complete invocation (you can give a partial invocation if you don’t have time for a full one).
You can sit at your computer and give an invocation, but most people prefer to sit in a more comfortable chair. Sit in a somewhat upright, but comfortable position. It helps the energies flow better.
When do I give an invocation?
You can give an invocation any time. Some people like to give one in the morning because the effect carries through the day and often makes your day easier. This is especially true for rosaries that invoke spiritual protection, such as Archangel Michael’s rosary or the Daily Growth Invocation.
How do I actually read the invocation?
To give an invocation, simply start reading at the beginning. A rosary always starts with an introductory paragraph that invokes specific ascended masters and sometimes describes the purpose of the invocation. After this preamble, you find words similar to these:
(Insert personal prayer here)
At this point you can give a – short or long as you prefer – statement to dedicate the invocation to a specific purpose. For example, if you are dealing with a specific problem that you would like to see resolved, describe the situation in specific detail and ask for the resolution of it. Don’t forget to ask for the highest possible outcome—which we can’t always see with our outer minds. So you might say: “In the name of the Christ, I ask for . . .” Or you might end the statement with: “In accordance with the highest vision of Christ, let it be done.” Or “In accordance with God’s will, let it be done.”
You then continue to read the invocation. The only thing you really need to know is that all invocations are structured with a combination of specific and general – or repeated – affirmations. The specific affirmations describe specific conditions that the invocation works on. The general affirmations are repeated after the specific affirmations.
Here is an example, with the specific affirmation first and then the repeated verse second:
1. Oh Mother Mary, help me see that when I allow myself to feel anger, blame or the desire for revenge against another person, I am creating or reinforcing a vortex of negative energy that pulls my soul down into the bowels of Hell.
Oh Mother Mary, we release
all thoughts and feelings less than peace,
releasing now all patterns old,
we leave behind the mortal mold.
River of Life, eternal flow,
we will to live, we will to grow.
We will transcend and be the more,
the joy of life we do adore.
To get a better feel for how this works, go to the Miracle Rosary and give this rosary along with the video.
After you finish the affirmations and verses, there is often a mantra that is chanted, and then there is a sealing, which completes the invocation.
In the beginning this might seem a bit intimidating, but you will quickly get used to is, if you decide to give it a sincere try. Remember, the proof of the invocation is in the giving of it. You just can’t know whether invocations work for you until you give it a try—and a sincere one.
Note that the best way to learn how to give an invocation is to give it along with a recording. You can purchase and download recordings of all invocations directly from our STORE.
