Enki Initiation


  • Food – Wheat bread is ideal
  • Drink – Wheat beer is ideal
  • Scented oil – Lavender essential oil recommended
  • Burnt offerings – incense and a burnt cow (substitute a cow-shaped candle)
  • Precious stones of Lapis Lazuli


  1. Give food offering
  2. Lite the candle/oil lamp
  3. Sprinkle with holy water
  4. Pour out scented oil into the oil cylinder
  5. Pour out libation to Enki
  6. Perform initial steps of En2-e2-nu-ru šu4-luh
  7. Recite Hear Us, O Enki
  8. Use the scrying surface to perform scrying
  9. Thank Enki
  10. Perform finishing steps of Enenuru-sig Aš-me
  11. At the completion of the ritual, put out the candles using the blade of your knife
  12. Dispose of the contents of the offering bowl and cup (We mustn’t reuse what was given to a deity.)
  13. Clean up your area

Note: In the middle of the Babylonian period, Mercury and Saturn’s astrological alignment were switched, so as a result I’ve had to adapt the astrological alignment to match what fits for this rite
