Holy Kabbalah – Ancient Origins and Development in Occult Spirituality & Magic Traditions

arc2013banner

Prior to its incorporation into quasi-magical systems and traditions, the Kabbalah formed the basis of the Hebrew (Semitic) spiritual mysticism that originated in Mesopotamia and from the Anunnaki-based sources…

…It was not until the later Christian-ruling period of the Dark Ages that the Kabbalah became an ‘esoteric’ part of the ‘underground’ traditions of counter-culture magicians and sorcerers.

To the Hebrew (or Jewish) people today, the QBL (Qabala) simply came from “God”, or rather the ‘voice of God’ as the angel Metatron. In the Anunnaki lore predating the same versions from the same locales, we find this ‘force’ to instead be attributed to the scribe of the gods, observed as NABU in the Babylonian (Mardukite) system, or in others as the “Mercurial-Thoth-Hermes” archetypal current.

kabbalahss In essence, the Kabbalah (and its origins) always comes from a godly source and is composed of knowledge of the gods that would otherwise be ‘forbidden’ for humans to be given comprehension of. Even today, if I were to be of a Judeo-Christian purist mind, I would not be even setting such words onto paper or exploring these mysteries for public benefit at all, nor would the subject of God be explored in this sense – which is of course, blasphemy and heretical.

Given the wide range of devotion found not only in the most ancient interpretations of the Anunnaki traditions while still being observed in their prehistoric forms in Babylon and Sumer (and surrounding areas), but also throughout the evolving history of spiritual tradition, it can be incredibly difficult to always plot a one-to-one comparison of the varying worldviews.

HistoryNecronewcrop When examining the plethora of magical books, esoteric grimoires, varying ‘keys’ of Solomon, Abramelin, or whoever else, we find reoccurring signposts that return us to the original Anunnaki systems from which the later Assyrian and Semitic lore was derived.

In fact this early lore of Mesopotamia can be found to be mainly responsible for the ‘source’ of all the later systems that came to develop in varying cultural-regions on the planet. It is the ‘understanding’ and ‘use’ of the developing beliefs surrounding these ideas that seems to keep the knowledge (and its carriers) ‘separated’.

reality138 Quoting from the Anunnaki & The Kabbalah essay/lecture given by Joshua Free in 2008:

Although the concept of ‘Anunnaki Aliens’ became too obscure to behold for the rising civilizations coming afterward to behold – the general theme that became central to all spiritual traditions is: there is an all-powerful Divine Source outside of this time-space that does not necessarily make a visible, beholdable, tangible appearance in this world as we might want to personify, but there are these ‘intermediaries’ or ‘angel’ spirits and demons that seem to reside somewhere between our understanding of existence and this all-encompassing non-fragmented and wholeness realization of the All-as-One.

Sacred Secrets of Abramelin the Mage, Advanced Magick, Arcanum with Joshua Free

Since the magical revival of the 1800’s, one tome — one magical grimoire — stands apart from the plethora of material reconstituted by the hands of MacGregor Mathers and other members of esoteric sects like the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn… The Book of Abramelin… The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage…

The mysteries of this sacred magic — this secret magick — are explored at length in Joshua Free’s underground masterpiece self-teaching curriculum: ARCANUM

picture094 ABRAMELIN’S sacred tradition is preserved in the only grimoire of Holy Magick that correlates to the abilities and practices of “biblical mages” and the magick of the Tetragrammaton. It relies on the practitioner’s relationship with Divine Names and success is highly dependent on personal purity and necessity. There are no “bizarre” sigils used or obscure practices required, as the work alludes that such are “evil” anyways. There are no intricate ceremonies or complex castings of nemetons. The elements are not addressed and are actually shunned as “lesser powers” than what if necessary for the work concerned.

THE BOOK OF ABRAMELIN acknowledges the use of planetary and other forms of magickal timing, but says to avoid such “atrocities” since the power of God is always present. This actually simplifies things significantly from an operative-ceremonial perspective, but the 18-month preparatory period remains to be swallowed.

IMG000233 While the magick squares themselves have been frequently exported from the system, the process of self-initiation and apprenticeship to the Higher Self is either not desirable to most practitioners or within their means. Seclusion from all worldly powers is advised in order to attain the highest powers, which explains why the stereotypical wizard lives as a hermit. The book also illustrates that many spiritual masters have gone into the wilderness to gather or compliment their wisdom. Such concepts are not foreign to seekers of Nature-oriented mysticism. If the wizard, called a “mage” in this system, cannot work outdoors at an altar of “unhewn” (uncut) stone, then instructions for the consecration of a proper “prayer-room” are included.

It is preferred if the mage can live a solitary life during the 18-month purification period. Idle talk, arguments, uncleanliness and residual energy from others can interfere with the sanctity of the process.

arcanum2012thumb The axiom that “cleanliness is next to godliness” might have emerged from this priestly work, for it has never been more fitting. The mage is instructed to remain as clean as possible during the purification period, both externally and internally. This includes: bathing, clothing, bedding, the floor, the food eaten and the thoughts dwelt upon.

Following “Old Testament” Hebrew law, the mage is permitted to share a bed with his wife, but she should also keep to a clean regimen, which includes refraining from sharing a bed with the mage or entering the “prayer-room” during menstruation. [The personal observation of the present author is that as opposed to viewing this monthly cycle as “evil” or “sinful” (as is generally insinuated by most interpretations), menstruation is simply an obstruction to the overall goals of cleanliness maintained for both the period of purification as well as the temples of this tradition in general. The goal of the priest-mage is to maintain a controlled environment to the highest reasonable extent.]
