The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin, The Mage — As Delivered By Abraham The Jew Unto His Son Lamech — As A Grimoire of The 15th Century book. Among the latter is this Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin, as delivered . Mage Abra-Melin; and claims to have himself personally and actually wrought. This text has had a huge influence on modern ceremonial magic, and has been cited as a primary influence on Aleister Crowley. Abraham of Würzburg, a.

I know of no other existing copy or replica of this Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin, not even in the British Museum, whose enormous collection of Occult Manuscripts I have very thoroughly studied. Neither have I ever heard by traditional report of the existence of any other copy.

The First Book contains advice concerning Magic, and a description of Abraham's Travels and experiences, as well as a mention of the many marvellous works he had been able to accomplish by means of this system of Sacred Magic. The work may then be thus roughly classified. This system of Sacred Magic Abraham acknowledges to have received from the Mage Abra-Melin; and claims to have himself personally and actually wrought most of the wonderful effects described in the Third Book, and many others besides.

Who then was this Abraham the Jew? It is possible, though there is no mention of this in the MS.

From his own account, the author of the present work appears to have been born in. That is to say, that he was the contemporary both of Nicholas Flamel and Pernelle, and also of the mystical Christian Rosenkreutz, the founder of the celebrated Rosicrucian Order or Fraternity in Europe.

Like the latter, he appears to have been very early seized with the desire of obtaining Magical Knowledge; like him and Flamel, he left his home and travelled in search of the Initiated Wisdom; like them both, he returned to become a worker of wonders.

Read what eminent modern magician and historian Francis King had to say in his monumental Magic in The Western Tradition: The Sacred Magic of Abra Melin expresses its doctrine, and the technique which depends from it, more clearly, and more consistently, than any other grimoire.

The machinery of the cosmos is seen as operated by demons under the direction of angels; man is seen as standing between the angelic and the demonic - each human being having attached to his or her soul a malevolent demon and a 'Holy Guardian Angel The object of the processes taught in The Sacred Magic was the obtaining of 'the Knowledge and Conversation' of this Holy Guardian Angel - once this had been done the magician could control the demons who run the universe, raise the dead, heal the sick, find great treasures and even fly [ astrally ].

Abra-Melin's rituals differ markedly from those of other grimoires for example, the Key of Solomon or Sword of Moses, with their solemn invocation of demons; all performed from within a magic circle; by comparison, Abra-Melin is quiet and almost mystical in tone, and the invocations sound like prayers.

No magic circle or pentacle is required merely a 'holy place, such as an altar constructed in a wood. The magician must 'inflame himself with prayer". If he is successful his Holy Guardian Angel will manifest himself, and he will instruct the magician in good and evil spirits.

And he seems to have obtained almost immediate results. There is no need to disbelieve him when he says 'during this time, magical phenomena were of constant occurrence" He locked the temple door before leaving for dinner with Jones; when he came back, it was open, and the furniture had been disarranged and symbols flung on the floor It was obvious that London was no place to carry out the full ritual prescribed by Abra-Melin the Mage He searched throughout most of , and finally found what he wanted on the southern shore of Loch Ness, near Foyers; it was called Boleskine House, Crowley began preparing the magical squares he would need for the Abra-Melin ritual.

The immediate result was a strange shadow that made it necessary to use artificial light even on the brightest day. After that, the house 'became peopled with shadowy shapes', and a friend who had come to stay with him was suddenly seized with panic, and left without saying goodbye. Still [Crowley] persisted with his invocations, and practised kabbalistic techniques of astral travel, seeing visions of fire angels, earth spirits and other elementals.

In he completed the Cairo Working, 'The operation out of which came The Book of The Law' Thus The most recent world-religion of Thelema and the entire direction of Crowley's magical system was a direct result of his employment of the magic of Abra Melin.

That Angel wrote on the lamen the Word of the Aeon.

The Book of the Law is this writing. All this must not, of course, be taken too literally. Those modem magicians, notably S. Guardian Angel' must not be taken as an entity in its own right but as the deepest layer of the unconscious, the ultimate ego which is most truly 'I' and yet, paradoxically enough, partakes of the nature of the Divine.

Abramelin the Mage – the Sacred Magic of

Following this there are seven days of supernatural phenomena, notably the appearance of the Angel to the magician in order to teach him the art of controlling spirits, both good and evil. Only when this has been done can the magician safely use the 'Abra-Melin talismans', lettered squares supposedly capable of producing great wonders. Such spectacular stories must tend to give the impression that The Sacred Magic is a somewhat sensational occult system.

Nothing could be further from the truth; in its entirety the system verges on quietism - Abra-Melin is far from the flamboyance associated with many of the grimoires and approaches more nearly the calm intellectualism of some of the scholar magicians of the Renaissance.

You can be 'holding it in your hands' in minutes. Contains Three ancient books concerning the magical pilgrimage of an initiate and a discovered method of using sacred talismanic squares to produce magical results. Contains a complete regime of purification and preparation to make contact with The Holy Guardian Angel and gain control over personal daemons.

Popular Features. New Releases. Description Around the turn of the century, when Aleister Crowley was working out his system of Magick, the source that he turned to for basics was the system of Abramelin of Egypt.

From Abramelin he took his concepts of protections, purifications, evocations, vestments, and dromena down to specific details. This quest is in itself as fascinating as the similar tours of Gurdjieff. So I read one of the classics and believe me I am no further along the magic path then I was before. I found the language dry boring and overly scholarly like written in a form of English that the modern reader would find it hard to comprehend.

The instructions are somewhat confusing as to how to perform the magical actions. For someone like me reading a Wicca book would be more beneficial.

The book itself is compos Abrmelin the Mage They said read the classics if you want to learn real magic. The book itself is composed of three books. The first book tells of how Abraham the Jew travel from Europe to the Middle East in order to find the right maniacal technique to contact and have conversation with your Holy Guardian angel.

The total work takes about three months before you are purified. The author must have had a crystal ball because he tells the reader to make sure he can perform his undertaking.

Most people do not have the time to isolate three selves from the world for six months and most cannot build an oratory or an alter to the specification on their property. The next two books tell how to interact with demons and angels. The magical actions rely on the order of angels and demons and working with magical squares. Many of these instruction were either vague on what to do and rather wordy.

This book is great to read for historical reference. Magic of this type is too complicated for modern people to carry out, unless they belong to a lodge or have a tutor. A couple things I liked about the book is that it extolled the virtues of righteous living and not exploiting magic for evil ends.

Abraham we also said that he met many magical performers who were practicing baseless superstition on or being enslaved by evil spiritual.

Forces while thinking they were on top of it all. Some of the arguments sill hold true today. May 18, Signor Mambrino rated it it was ok.

The narrative of the first book reads like a novella, and the unique bad-angels-working-for-good-angels-working-for-the-magician-working-for-God concept makes the magical instruction fairly interesting too.

Having to give up six moons after Easter would also mean I wouldn't be able to work, but apparently I would be able to get Spirits to bring me silver and gold, so I wouldn't need another job.

It's really nice to have a version of the Abramelin texts which are as complete as humanly possible, drawing upon all known manuscripts instead of just the single French one which Mathers used for his famous translation.The approach to working with what are typically views as Dukes, Kings, and servitors of the daemonic hierarchy is far from the notion of them being inherently evil -- an approach that is rare within works of a Judaeo-Christian context.
