Prepare as usual. Approach the North and set the North Stone (or the candle) on the ground. Then, visualize a stone slab standing upright two feet to the left of and behind the North Stone. Visualize this as being bluish-grey, two feet wide, two feet thick and six feet tall. This stone represents the Goddess.
When the stone is really there- in your visualization- create another stone of the same size and color two feet to the right of and behind the North Stone. This represents the God.
Now visualize a capstone resting on top of the two upright stones. It is about two feet by two feet by six feet. This represents The One before the Goddess and God, the source of all power and magick. The Northern Trilithon is now complete.
The stones form an archway, a symbol of the gateway to the realm of the element of Earth.
Firmly visualize this, then gaze through the arch formed by the stones. See the greenish haze of the Earth energy.
Repeat the entire procedure to the East, South and West. Visualize the appropriate elemental color within each trilithon.
Now purify salt and water, cast the circle as usual, and carry around the salt, censer, candle and water.
As you approach each quarter to call its Spirit of the Stone, see the trilithon firmly in your mind. Visualize it in all its Pagan splendor. See the elemental hazes within them, boiling and writhing in unmanifestedness. Stretch out with your feelings; sense the arrival of the spirit of each stone, then go on to the next.
With practice this comes easily, but such visualizations are never necessary.
