The Sacred Dagger of the pre-Christian European Religion is called the Atheme. It is believed to slice open the barriers between the worlds. The Atheme is chiefly used to invoke the four directions. Its cutting action (as it is moved five times to scribe the pentacle in the air) is intended to anoint one’s sacred circle with the power of each direction. These are not violent cuts. These are cuts in our energy or consciousness, and they do not flow red, but rather with multicolored, rainbow essences of love, wisdom, compassion and life.
