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

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 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.

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.

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.
