The Kabbalah as Cosmic Map of Fragmentation of Spiritual Energy and Return to Source

arc2013banner

The mystical state of what has now been classified as ‘entanglement’ could only be defined as a ‘wholeness’, ‘interconnected’ or ‘All-as-One’ aspect of reality. But this was found to be too ‘transparent’ for the minds of contemporary humans and so we find the birth of systems created by the human mind by which these relationships can be better defined.

EnochianMagicfrontcrop [This blog officially excerpted from Enochian Magic & Kabbalah by Joshua Free, also available in the Mardukite Year-4 anthology: History of the Necronomicon]

Before the time of humans there existed a race of intelligent life that was not nearly as fixed to the ‘condensed’ perceptions of physical reality that we might be familiar with. We look toward such beings today, based on our present recollection of history and the accounts made concerning divine encounters with humans, and we call them gods, angels, spirits…

The Kabbalah represents the relationship between the purely spiritual and purely material realms — which are altogether one and the same.

310117_10151924936286988_1291959134_n During this descent to Earth and the transition of ‘light beings’ into ‘conscious lifeforms’ on this plane, a Brotherhood of Light was formed for the specific purpose of guiding this massive move toward ‘direct genetic intervention’ – a means to create suitable bodies in a suitable “physical” environment, meaning the formation of genetic vehicles…bodies.

This is the standard by which we might come to better know the ancient mysteries that are before us, waiting for us to break their code. The Semitic or Hebrew Kabbalah is one of, though not, the oldest ‘map’ by which the human mind can evolve to understand how and why things are the way they are – a means of exploring the basic ‘pattern’ of all existences able to be experienced, since they are all one existence, simply experiencing itself in ‘fragmented’ forms.

reality138 The formation of any Kabbalah that is relevant will usually drawn upon a very familiar archetype, one that promotes an understanding of the cosmos on all levels – the pattern that is manifest in the universe as a macrocosm, but also the fundamental evolution of ‘intelligent design’ that can be found in the microcosm or fundamental ‘level’ of all being – and that is the tree, usually expressed as either the Tree of Life or the “Tree of Knowledge”, but always a tree…

[For additional information on this nature of knowledge, visit the NexGen Systemological Society.]

GNOMONIC EXPANSION found within the pattern of tree-growth is expressive on not only the symbolic but also the literary ‘formation’ of the basic patterns of life, ever reaching outward, expanding from a ‘source’ and sharing a ‘fractal’ relationship with the ‘whole’. Such an understanding of reality has most certainly remained ‘esoteric’ or ‘hidden’ in the folds of what has become an otherwise ‘mundane’ human experience.

EnochianMagicfrontcrop The “tree” as the “key” makes its expected debut appearance among the lore of the Mesopotamians. In the archetypal Babylonian (Mardukite) paradigm, it is representative of all of the things we find in later systems (such as those of the Semitic Hebrew and even the Norse Vikings and Druids).

As a microcosm, the “tree” is representative of the interconnected nature of all life and existence. This is a direct indication that we are all from the same Source and that all life and existence shares this relationship. In essence, all of the ‘true’ spiritual and mystical traditions and systems to later ‘bloom’ also shared this basic tenet as the foundation of their beliefs and practices. The ‘manifestation’ seen eminent in the cosmos and on the planet or in the course of a person’s own ‘spiritual progression’ could all be charted as some ‘branch’ or ‘pathway’ that has or had extended from this All-Source of which everything is entangled into!!!

FREE MODERN MAGICK SCHOOL LESSON, Elemental Magick: Cosmic Universal Powers with Joshua Free

Apprenticeship: Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry — First appearing in New Babylon Rising” (Issue #4, April 2012) — this ‘apprenticeship lesson’ is part of a progressive curriculum adaptation series drawn from the work of Merlyn Stone and the Arcanum notebooks.

LESSON 5 – ELEMENTAL MAGICK & NATURE POWER

arcanum2012thumb As we perceive them in the fragmented physical world, there appear to be four primary elements (plus a fifth of quintessence).

EARTH provides the sorcerer with structure, substance and foundation. They are the keys to abundance.

AIR offers communication, illumination, focus and clarity; the codes of intellect.

FIRE gives strength, courage, vitality and faith, offering personal and external protection.

WATER brings transformation, healing and purity, the means to inner wisdom.

Sounds pretty good, eh?
So HOW does one go about tapping into this awesome spectrum of elemental powers?

ANSWER: The sorcerer employs Elvish and Druidic practices.

druidcomptinythumb ELEMENTALISM

The basic foundation of all practical Nature/Earth-oriented systems of magick operating under the premise that knowledge of the “composition” of energy enables it to be used and transformed constructively.

Although traditions vary concerning the quantity of elements and the divisions of the attributes, most of the non-chemical paradigms are based on the four basic currents: air, earth, fire and water. These forces, as well as metallic elements interpreted in the form of planetary energy, became the focus of ancient alchemy.

The material elements, earth and air, divide the basic interpretive division into solids and gasses. Water was later discovered to be composed of more elements and fire was rejected from the model as a “process” of combustion, not a standalone element.

QUANTUM METAPHYSICS & ELEMENTALISM

reality177 In the elemental model proposed by Joshua Free in ARCANUM, earth and air correspond to the first two forms of manifestation that modern science becomes familiar with: gravity-G and electromagnetism-EM.

The discovery of the other two sub-atomic nuclear forces completes the fourfold “standard model” of Western Elementalism.

In this model, fire corresponds to the W-weak (nuclear) force responsible for radiation, fusion and heat. The qualities found in the water element correspond to the S-strong (nuclear) force that bonds and unites particles together all across the fabric of space. This model has never before been presented in New Age literature.

wizardryfrontcvr ELEMENTAL MAGICK

Elemental magick is the basis for all practical systems used in the New Age. Every facet of virtually any philosophical, scientific or magickal model can be reduced to an elemental relationship.

Wizards and magical practitioners who use such models in their interpretation of energy and existence are called “Elementalists.”

Elementalists have already gained a sense of this unifying force in their own models, calling it Akasha, the essence of all things both manifest and invisible. It suggests a new vision for the “aether” as an inter-dimensional shroud or brane by which the elemental forces are able to vibrate their existence. This “fifth element” or spiritual dimension would in fact hold the sum of the other elements in it as well. This is why Akasha has the peculiar attribute of being a fifth “encompassing” element and yet the product of all four at the same time. This type of metaphysics is only discernible by adopting “dimensional theories.”

ELEMENTAL POWER

elemtnaltrian For novices, elementalism can be a quite individual path of exploration. It requires that the student work with and understand the energy of each of the elements. Not only are physical manifestations of the elements employed, astral journeys and visualizations into the elemental realms or “domains” are also observed.

When calling elementals to the ritual nemeton, these beings or conscious personifications of the energetic current, are visualized as coming to the edge of the circle.

The wizard invites their energy into the nemeton via intention. Elemental tablets and candles (of an appropriate color) are set out at each of the four directions, each corresponding to a specific element.

In traditional interpretations they are:
NORTH = earth
EAST = air
SOUTH = fire
WEST = water

Sacred Magic from Book of Abramelin, Advanced Magick Systems with Joshua Free

MerlynsSchoolCOLOR

Apart from the ceremonial magick applications of the Necronomicon System (whether that of the Simon ‘Necronomicon’ or the more intensive work applied to the name as conducted by the Mardukite Research Organization), the only other significantly advanced and controversial tome of magick from antiquity that became of popular interest during the founding of the Mardukites in 2008 and 2009 remains the BOOK OF ABRAMELIN, a magickal and spiritual paradigm that I explored at length through a series of YouTube videos, all of which were based on material prepared for ARCANUM and then later for ENOCHIAN MAGIC & THE KABBALAH.
–Joshua Free

arcanum2012thumb According to the ARCANUM materials…

THE SACRED BOOK OF MAGICK OF ABRAMELIN THE MAGE is a potent grimoire of holy magick, considered sacred in the “Dragon-King grimoire cycle,” which is drawn from the high magickal tradition of the Kabbalah. The magick of Abramelin was first translated into English from an 18th Century French manuscript by MacGregor Mathers for use by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (GD) at the end of the 1800s. The title of the that version actually introduces the subject quite well: “The Book of Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage as Delivered by Abraham the Jew unto his son Lamech: A Grimoire of the Fifteenth Century.

The knowledge has not had significant exposure to the public, such as is seen with the other more “famous” grimoires. The work is composed of a true Mesopotamian-Semitic tradition of the magick of angels via magick squares and names, which actually predates the 16th Century Enochian System. As with most of the early revival work of the Golden Dawn System, The “Book of Sacred Magic” later proved to be flawed. From the start, the French manuscript used by Mathers was incomplete. Some important instructions are missing and more than half of the magick squares are unfinished. Steven Guth translated the “Book of Abramelin” (2006) from German manuscripts antiquating the French one. Great lengths were also taken in the verification of Abraham the Jew, both his biographical and geographical renderings. [Some scholars have confused the identity of the author of the text (Abraham) with that of his mentor or instructor (Abramelin).] Abramelin may be a magickal or religious name. Abraham attributes all of the true “Holy Magick” that he has learned in his life to the wisest of mentors that he has found in all the lands: Abramelin.

arc2013banner

EnochianMagicfrontcrop

The magick of Abramelin is “sacred” or “Holy Magick,” quite different from the ceremonial magick that wizards are more traditionally familiar with. The Kabbalah, whether spiritual or practical, is a sacred system of mysticism originally reserved for the priests of the Hebrew Tradition and ancient Semitic Dragon Kings. It is the priestly magick used by clerics, requiring prayer over ritualized incantations. In fact, someone who has not yet undergone deep religious purification outlined for an 18-month period cannot even use the magickal “operations” of the grimoire. It is amusing then, to find Abramelin’s magick squares appearing in contemporary New Age books of magick that suggest their use without adhering to all of the preliminaries.

Secrets of Dragon Magick (lesson) – Essence of Dragon’s Blood in Arcanum with Joshua Free

arc2013banner

Dragons are significant archetypes in ancient mythologies and the magickal world of modern wizards. The earliest creation epics (of Sumerian or Ubaid-Sumerian origin) depict the Earth Planet as the “body” of a great dragon, and the skies as the “head.” The ancient Druids, descended from the primordial line of Dragon Kings by way of the Tuatha d’Anu (Tuatha de Dannan), referred to the Earth as a dragon…

DRAGON’S BLOOD (Daemonorpos draco)
A powerful herbal resin derived from the palm tree. It is burned as incense for protection, love/sexuality and fire-gazing (skrying) as attributed to the fire element and Mars. Resonating sacredness, it is burned for the purification of an area or nemeton. Men put pieces of dragon’s blood under their bed or carry it to regain “sexual virility.” The most common ritual application for the substance is dragon magick or dragon calling, although the use of the incense might in part be a incomprehension of “dragon-blood,” an ancient genetic requirement for magickal practice. The resin still vibrates the “feared” draconic energy that has been literally demonized since its designation, “daemonorops,” literally means “demon shrub.” The sap-like resin is drawn from the unripe fruit of the “Dragon’s Blood Palm Tree,” making it almost impossible for most American herbalists to become self-sufficient in their supply. — authorized excerpt from Arcanum by Joshua Free

“Do What Thou Will…” FREE LESSON from Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry

MerlynsSchoolCOLOR

Apprenticeship: Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry — First appearing in “New Babylon Rising” (Issue #3, March 2012) — this ‘apprenticeship lesson’ is part of a progressive curriculum adaptation series drawn from the work of ‘Merlyn Stone‘ and the “Arcanum” notebooks.

LESSON 3 – BREATH & WILL

wizardryfrontcvr Rhythmic breathing is a prerequisite for most magickal work as part of the initial grounding process (not always indicated in an advanced ritual text). This simply becomes second nature to experienced practitioners. Proper breathing is not only important for your physical well-being, it also affects your ability to meditate, relax or energize your body (and aura).

arcanum2012thumb During deliberate breathing periods, oxygen should be inhaled via the nose and exhaled through the mouth. Breathing solely in and out of the mouth is actually unhealthy because the air is not slowed and warmed through the sinuses. Any mystical work involving energy (which is practically all of it) is enhanced through proper breathing – which distributes energy through the body. When you breathe in you can feel the energy flowing into your pores and flowing through the body.

QUAD-BREATHING Rhythmic breathing skills come from learning to gauge your breath. As you “count” specific intervals, your breath should be steady and maximized. Completely fill and empty your lungs, holding in between. This can be uncomfortable at first, but eventually it should yield a sensation of mild euphoria (as its amazing what proper breathing can do). One popular method we call “quad-breathing,” counting four seconds or heartbeats for each part of the cycle: breathing in (counting to four), holding (counting to four), exhaling (counting. . .) and holding.

arcanum2012thumb By adding visualization imagery, you can project a conceptualized idea (or polarized energy) in the area around you and then interact with it (e.g. breathing it in or exhaling it into an environment). It is imperative for a sorcerer to maintain a true sense of self (in self-honesty). The sorcerer must always be in control of the body and mind – must always have control over the actions and thoughts that ensue from said body and mind. This is called true “willpower” or “self-direction.” Practice at this may require gaining a more awkward routine – pushing your-self to behave in a way you might not normally do. That is to say: don’t allow clocks, schedules and impulsive “desires” to rule your life. When hungry, tired or the like, wait a little while longer. See if you can manipulate these sensations or trans-form them into something else. This is not to say to deprive yourself, but learn to do more than “react.” Learn to actually “act”. This type of training increases one’s control over the body – after all, how can you transcend the physical body if you are bound by it?

wizardryfrontcvr A technique referred to as “pore breathing is an advanced breathing method used in energy work or high magick, especially relating to the rays of light. In this form of deliberate breathing, you are to feel yourself inhaling through all the pores of your body. As your breathe in, you absorb an ele-mental energy or color (ray) from every surrounding direction, pulling it through your auric shield. When you exhale, release all the impurities of the body out of your pores as well. This process is called “energetic transfusion.” When raising energy you are drawing in external energies and adding your own vibration (via intentions) before releasing the energy into the Universe.

FREE MAGICK, Lesson Two “Visualization & Ritual” — Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry with Joshua Free

Apprenticeship: Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry — First appearing in “New Babylon Rising” (Issue #2, February 2012) — this ‘apprenticeship lesson’ is part of a cumulative (progressive) curriculum drawn from the work of ‘Merlyn Stone‘ and the “Arcanum” notebooks.

LESSON 2 – VISUALIZATION

wizardryfrontcvr A key to the process of magick is the “art” of visualization. This is the innate ability to create images and pictures in the mind. Problems on the physical plane are often created (and even resolved) from the process of “visualization” — where we place our ‘focus’ and process energy through. The mastery of visualization is a mental power which enables a magician or wizard to gain a level of control over the physical world — influencing the ‘lower’ by operating via the ‘higher’. Basic visualization-based rituals follows this formula:

: 1. Raising Energy
:: 2. Visualizing the Desired Change
::: 3. Sending Energy to the Cause

arcanum2012thumb Visualization is the primary ability to maintain conscious control over the subconscious mind using innate faculties of “imagery.” These skills allow you to observe changes as if they have already taken place and put attentive energies into these images. All change actually works on this principle: a person sees the desired change in their mind and then acts.

RITUAL MAGICK — Thus is ritual magick, enabling one to allow changes to occur more rapidly then when left alone to themselves. In magickal terms, this is called the “channeling and harvesting of energy to direct it to a desired target to affect a change.”

arcanum2012thumbIn addition to the ability to visualize concrete imagery, the sorcerer must also possess concentration and thought discipline. “Thought magick” requires the mental skills to hold a clear image in the mind for prolong periods of time. This is where most novices will usually require the most personal development to be able to execute effective magick.

VISUALIZATION EXERCISE — Begin by sitting comfortably and allow your thoughts to drift for several minutes. First, go through what you were thinking and cause (or will) it to be replayed as precisely as possible. Next, allow your thoughts to drift and then still your mind, holding one thoughtform in your head for as long as you can. Don’t strain, but focus on a single thought. If your mind begins to wander, gently correct yourself and begin to focus on the thought again. The final step is to keep the mind completely clear of all thoughts for as long as possible. Practice with these basic techniques is essential to gaining the necessary discipline over the mind.

wizardryfrontcvr Relaxation is critical to concentration. This is the ability to gain and keep a relaxed state of inner peace at will. Of course, not all magickal practices require a “sedated” state of mind, but absolute clarity in your focus is essential, including self-control and self-discipline, particularly concerning emotional energies. Such workings where violent imagery will better aid magick, would of course, be nullified by “relaxation” for the entire duration, but without proper focus, the energy in the ritual can become “wild magick.”

RELAXATION EXERCISE — Relaxation may be achieved by sitting or laying in a position comfortable and free of having to tense your muscles. When your muscles begin to tense or you get anxious, regulate your breathing and will your muscles to relax. Restlessness is fairly common to those who are not used to such stillness. Becoming proficient in such skills will greatly prepare you for the magickal work ahead.

arcanum2012thumb As a final testament of your ability, try this: relax, clear your mind, then make an intentional recall of a specific recent event – consciously replaying the same stretch of information from memory, capturing as much of the original details as possible. Reproduce the emotional involvement and stimuli: visual, physical sensations, sounds, smells, and so forth.

FREE LESSONS, “Introduction to Energy” — Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry with Joshua Free

MerlynsSchoolCOLOR

Apprenticeship: Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry — First appearing in “New Babylon Rising” (Issue #1, January 2012) — this ‘apprenticeship lesson’ is part of a cumulative (progressive) curriculum drawn from the work of ‘Merlyn Stone’ and the “Arcanum” notebooks.

LESSON 1 – ENERGY

wizardryfrontcvr Energy exists in all things and is likewise the driving force behind all magickal work. Whether something is “living” or not, it has energy, a force that can be changed and manipulated by the will of the magician or wizard. Energy cannot cease to exist, nor can it be created. It simply is. But constantly is it revolving and abounding, changing form. The “wizard” (or whatever name you wish to give a ‘magickal practitioner’ proper) is one who seeks to recognize the patterns and cause them to change in accordance with their will.

All the actions, words, symbols and dramatic enactments performed in ritual magick are meaningless without the proper currents of energy being understood. The energy required for magick is every-where around us, although invisible to the untrained eye. The “Wizard” there-fore learns to recognize this energy, to channel and harvest it for personal gain. More than a religion or cult-following, “magick” is a way in which to view the world and interpret life.

arcanum2012thumb There are two main sources of energy utilized in magick. Firstly, there is personal power, the energy that enables one to walk, sleep, study, think… and have sex. This energy can be raised for magickal purposes through mental concentration and the tensing of the physical muscles in the body. It can be directed in currents (rays) to any source to more easily create change on a mundane level.

The second source of energy is external. Very often in “low magick” and earth-oriented systems, this second source is Nature-power. In “high” and “ceremonial” forms of magick, this power may come from the astral plane, the current of a spiritual deity (entity) or perhaps from what is perceived as another dimension or level of reality. The powers of the Wizard are then are only limited by one’s imagination – or more importantly, ones ability to visualize within imagination. Through ritual magick, Wizards raise personal power, then merge it with external powers (called forth or summoned) and direct it with the “mind” via visualization. “Visualization,” as we are told, “is the key to the occult.”

MAGICK -vs- MAGIC
Aleister Crowley once said: “The whole question has been threshed out and organized by wise men of old; they have made a science of life complete and perfect; and they have given to it the name of MAGICK.” The primary means (numerology aside) for the change in spelling was to create a distinction between the practical occult magickal arts and the illusionist parlor tricks of magic by those who only pretend to manifest occult powers. Both spellings are accepted in the “New Age.”

CEREMONIAL HIGH MAGICK
This style of magick is used in order to manipulate the mental and spiritual planes. High magick delves deeper into the complexities of the systems, ceremonies and ritual aids used to represent abstract and spiritual concepts. Magick using spellcraft, witchcraft and the like for purposes of affecting physical change is not “high magick.” High Ceremonial Magick is used and mastered in order to raise transcendentalist states erupting from the belief that humans can become more than the physical restrictions the material systems portray. Some traditions of high magick are also called “holy magick.”

Great Magickal Arcanum, Merlyn’s School of Magick & Wizardry RE-OPENS!

MerlynsSchoolCOLOR

GREAT MAGICKAL ARCANUM – THE UNIVERSAL UNIFICATION

ARCANUM by Joshua Free is a unique literary contribution toward the harmonic unification of the knowledge that has received many names through the ages: magickal, occult, pseudo-scientific and now, “quantum.” The rise of technology and the recent “information age” has provided a wellspring of metaphysical lore, but it is not mutually synchronous with other knowledge or even other New Age systems, often due to vocabulary use. “New Agers” separate their sects and factions in the same manner as the scientists and the religious officials, and we (as a society) have not been progressing towards global unity. All of our developments and paradigms of truth continue to grow and prove themselves only when isolated within the system in which they were designed.

arcanum2012thumb This innovative presentation requires that YOU have immediate access to supplemental information on any given facet of related knowledge. This is indicated in the text by the appearance of “links” or bold-faced type that prompts YOU to explore other specific parts of the book for additional clarification. This design allowed the author the ability to cover more topics in a tighter space without having to be unnecessarily repetitive in reprinting the more common aspects. This book is not to be mistaken as simply another “A-to-Z Encyclopedia of Magick” or a superficial discourse concerning “where science and magick meet.” In fact, this text was not written for the true beginner in mind and its scope surpasses practical magick alone.

ARCANUM has no specific starting point, allowing it to be integrated into any personal background or developmental stage. With sufficient time, study and practice, the seeker works through the entire body of knowledge, beginning first with the facets of individual fancy and inclination, and then continuing on with the remainder of the entangled material, which you will find to be coherently interconnected, not simply clumped together to make a massive series. By presenting this primer of a new standard model of the mysteries, any individual, couple or study group can find the ease of using this global” system in spite of prior personal religious, spiritual, philosophical, scientific and academic accomplishments.

IMG000190 Throughout history a uniquely separate class of individual has existed on the edges of known reality, bearing a great magickal secret. Some have come to call these folk “wizards” or “mystics,” the possessors of the “hidden” or “occult” knowledge of life and the universe. They alone bring the obscure and “invisible” properties of existence into the light, albeit rarely upholding contemporary norms. And while there has been an observable increase of interest in such topics progressively in recent past, the walls of the Ancient Mystery School have far from collapsed.

Until now…

At the dawn of a new age, the perceptive seeker discovers a barrier…

The common New Age metaphysicist cannot hope to gain a better understanding of their own consciousness and abilities of thought power until a more complete paradigm is embraced. Consequently, physicists and physical scientists are quickly reaching a glass ceiling in microscopic observation and particle acceleration experiments that exclude all metaphysical facets. In the past, monumental developments have occurred via some form of “unifying framework” (such as the interconnection between the cosmos and the Earth Planet understood in models of elements and forces). It seems self-evident that the only solution to our developmental problems as a society is going to be derived from a unification of knowledge or “bridge in understanding” between all physical and metaphysical paradigms. This is exactly what the wizards and mystics have known for thousands of years; That all physical aspects have metaphysical properties and visa versa.

arcanum2012thumb Hidden within these pages is the true story of the development of civilization, human existence, the traditions and “real magick” adopted by individual hermits, orders and societies at each stage. Unlike many other A-to-Z styled works, ARCANUM is not simply a collection of vocabulary, history and arbitrary biographies, nor is it composed of randomly dispersed pseudo-psychological techniques and spirito-magickal puffery that often runs rampant in the mainstream New Age. Here YOU will follow a practical and experimental journey from ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt through the traditions of “magickal” races and bloodlines of the Europeans. YOU will observe the loss of Truth experienced globally during the Dark Ages, which secret societies have so strongly sought to maintain. Finally, YOU will arrive at the forefront of current developments in “quantum theory” and “unifying fields,” new paradigms reviving old philosophies with new terminology, by which the modern “wizard” can better understand the effects of metaphysical “thought magick” on the physical world and the relationship between the resonance of external-environmental energies and the internal self.

ARCANUM seeks to challenge seekers from any path (whether religious, mystical or scientific) to “shed their skin” for a moment, to release the Ego and their layers of belief and sensory experience in order to discover the antinomian Truth that exists outside the boundaries of all defined systems or paradigms. Rather than take the approach that all systems are “just wrong,” Joshua Free explains that it is simply our “beliefs” concerning each facet or level of reality that are in need of revision. Drawing from diverse sources and traditions, the coherent highlights are presented that can unite the knowledge of varying systems. It validates their comprehensive efforts rather than minimizes them.

IMG000233 ARCANUM prompts all people to embrace their intuition in the light of Truth. For example, during the last century, anthropologists revealed startling confirmations concerning the ancient Mesopotamians and their influence on human genetics and civilization. Sumerian, Babylonian and Akkadian tablets (unavailable to seekers a century ago) now reveal a more ancient source to the Genesis of mankind that was presented to the Hebrew by Moses. The Anunnaki-Nephilim lore of the same geographic region provides the source of angelic mysticism, obscure races of elemental beings and the European faerie folk. The lore preserved by diverse traditions and secret societies show evidence for the belief in specific dynasties and bloodlines of “real” wizards and elves, a folk that have since passed into realms of fantasy and imagination. And these are just a few of the 1,000 facets of knowledge explored within these pages.

ARCANUM is written in simple terms, but it is actually a superior tome of information that surpasses the efforts of other recent “A-to-Z Encyclopedias” or fluffy beginner-oriented texts. It draws from many diverse avenues of knowledge that allows anyone interested in metaphysics to explore it on their own terms, beginning first with the tenets that they are drawn to by personal inclination and then eventually discovering all of the interconnected lore by way of bold-faced links.

wizardryfrontcvr The book provides a complete structure and standard by which future developments in this field will have to be rethought to include the metaphysical, psychological, quantum and spiritual significance of meditation, visualization, ritual magick, ceremonial tools, natural magick (herb & trees), “spellcraft,” energy work, auras, chakras, resonant energy in environments, sacred sexuality, the philosophy of knowledge and morals, philosophical and laboratory metaphysics, the contributions of secret societies and magickal organizations, divination, prophecy, skrying, astral work, astrophysics, the interpretations of astrological symbolism, the influence of planets, the symbolism of celestial mythology (Sky Gods), the historical background to Christianity, the effects of the Church through the Dark Ages, the heredity of Dragon Kings, incarnated elemental beings, quantum physics, unified fields, superstrings (string theory) and other waves and particles of energy. Provided within are all the tools YOU, the seeker, require to discover the ARCANUM of life for YOURSELF.
