Enochian magic

Enochian is one of those magickal systems which is widely known about, but unfortunately not fully understood by many. The main reason for this is the lack of organization of the original source work, as well as the limited availability of this source work.

The Enochian system is basically a large amount of diary notes written down by John Dee and Edward Kelly during skrying sessions. The present work has been written to bring the Enochian system together into something workable by the modern magickian. In many circles, this phrasing is nearly blasphemous. Many magickal practitioners do not see Enochian as a complete system. Nor do they believe that it is safely practiced without another system to buffer the effects.

I believe the reason for these beliefs is that many have only seen a small part of the original source works, the part that has been used by modern ceremonial magick orders. Unfortunately the written aspects of Enochian that are the easiest to access, are also different then the original writings. I believe Enochian to be as complete of a magickal system as that of other modern occult practices.

It was basically just a listing of the tools, names and prayers used. Due to this, I have borrowed ideas from Franz Bardon, my own workings and Aleister Crowley to help the student along the Enochian path.

In other words the methods used to work modern Kabbalistic magick for example, also work quite well with Enochian magick. The names and energies are different, but the basis of magick is still the same. Enochian magick is not nearly as complicated as it looks, or as people tend to make it out to be. Enochian is far less complex than the modern Kabbalistic system for example. The modern ceremonial magick Kabbalistic magick appears easier and less complicated than Enochian; this is mostly due to the vast amount of work that the GD has put into it's use and organization.

Also many people have been working magick with the Kabala for years, and many authors have taken the time to break it down into an easily understandable form. This organization helps people to figure out the basics of the system easily. A majority of the misunderstanding of Enochian stems from part of the original material missing to begin with. Also, several magickal traditions only use bits and pieces of the Enochian system, which leads to the appearance of incompleteness.

From what I have found Enochian can be used as a complete system in itself, as long as one follows the basic rules of magick and uses the system responsibly. As with any system of magick, one must learn the basics before they move onto the advanced work. Enochian can also be very effective when used in combination with other systems, when it is well organized and incorporated logically.

The Golden Dawn has done a lot of work towards building a workable system with Enochian. Unfortunately the Enochian is only a small part of the GD system, and therefore there is not much discussion on it within the published order work.

The GD is where many people first hear of Enochian, and thus decide that it is too complicated.

Only a small portion of the Enochian system in contained within these published works, and therefore cannot be effectively worked on its own unless the student does further research It is also important to note that the GD system uses the Enochian tablets differently than is outlined in the original manuscripts.

This has led to quite some confusion over the years.

Another factor in the incomprehension of the Enochian system stems from the fact that Dee and Kelly did not write the most easily to understand notes. They were not writing a book, they were taking notes from the skrying sessions in their personal diary. For example, in my diary notes, I leave many obvious things out.

I do not include what direction I called which element, and the fact that I did a banishing as these statements are obvious. I do a banishing before every.

I only denote changes from the norm. On top of all of the confusion, there are no records of Dee or Kelly ever working the system. Whether Dee and Kelly ever worked Enochian is still up for debate.Enochian magic is a system of ceremonial magic based on the evocation and commanding of various spirits. It is based on the 16th-century writings of John Dee and Edward Kelleywho claimed that their information, including the revealed Enochian language, was delivered to them directly by various angels.

Dee's journals contained the Enochian scriptand the tables of correspondences that accompany it. Dee and Kelley believed their visions gave them access to secrets contained within the Book of Enoch.

The raw material for the Enochian magical system was "dictated" through a series of Angelic communications which lasted from Dee and Kelley claimed they received these instructions from angels.

While Kelley conducted the psychic operation known as scryingDee kept meticulous written records. Kelley looked into a crystal "shewstone" and described aloud what he saw. This account of the Angelic communications is taken at face value by most Enochian occultists.

However, some of them have pointed out remarkable similarities to earlier grimoiric texts such as the Heptameron known to Dee. The system claims to relate to secrets contained within the apocryphal Book of Enoch. The correct spelling is Loagaeth but it has been so frequently printed as Logaeth that this spelling is in common use. It is from Liber Logaeth that Dee and Kelley derived the 48 Calls or Keys see belowand in which are concealed the keys to the Mystical Heptarchya related magical work by Dee.

Liber Logaeth has never been published in book form but is available online at: [1]. Dee himself left little information on his Sixth Holy Book apart from saying that it contained 'The Mysterie of our Creation, The Age of many years, and the conclusion of the World' and that the first page in the book signified Chaos. There are three versions of the latter; a facsimile reprint of the Ethiopian version is Laurence, [3] Nor should it be confused with Crowley's rescension Liber Chanokh The Book of Enoch although all these texts are related.

Another manuscript, Sloan ms. Sloane There are two transcripts of this manuscript available today: Joseph Peterson [5] and C. An expanded facsimile edition of Casaubon was published by Magickal Childe in [7]. Dee and Kelley's surviving manuscripts later came into the possession of Elias Ashmole, who preserved them, and made fair copies of some, along with annotations.

Dee and Kelly never referred to their magic as 'Enochian' but rather called it 'Angelic'. However, in modern occultism it is commonly known as Enochian. It is not quite clear how much of Enochian magic was put to use by Dee and Kelley. Indeed, whether Dee and Kelly ever practiced Enochian is still up for debate. The angels allegedly told them not to work Enochian magic, and there are no diary records of works being done except for one healing talisman that they were instructed by the angels to make.

Dee and Kelley's journals are essentially notebooks which record the elements of the system, rather than records of workings they performed using the system.The men claimed that the language was revealed to them by the Enochian angels.

The language is integral to the practice of Enochian magic. The syntax and grammar of the Enochian language are highly similar to the English language. The language found in Dee's and Kelley's journals encompasses a limited textual corpus, only some of it with English translations. Several linguists, notably Donald Laycockhave studied Enochian, and argue against any extraordinary features in the language.

Dee's journals did not describe the language as "Enochian", instead preferring descriptors like "Angelical", the "Celestial Speech", the "Language of Angels", the "First Language of God-Christ", the "Holy Language" or " Adamical " because, according to Dee's Angels, it was used by Adam in Paradise to name all things.

The term "Enochian" comes from Dee's assertion that the Biblical Patriarch Enoch had been the last human before Dee and Kelley to know the language. According to Tobias Churton in his text The Golden Builders[5] the concept of an Angelic or antediluvian language was common during Dee's time. If one could speak the language of Angels, it was believed one could directly interact with them. InDee mentioned in his personal journals that God had sent "good angels" to communicate directly with prophets.

InDee teamed up with the seer Edward Kelleyalthough Dee had used several other seers previously. Their work resulted, among other things, in the reception of the Enochian or Angelical language. According to Dee's journals, [7] Angelical was supposed to have been the language God used to create the world, and which was later used by Adam to speak with God and the angels, and to name all things in existence.

After his Fall from ParadiseAdam lost the language and constructed a form of proto- Hebrew based upon his vague memory of Angelical. This proto-Hebrew, then, was the universal human language until the time of the Confusion of Tongues at the Tower of Babel.

After this, all the various human languages were developed, including an even more modified Hebrew which we know as " Biblical Hebrew ". From the time of Adam to the time of Dee and Kelley, Angelical was hidden from humans with the single exception of the patriarch Enoch who, according to the angels, recorded the "Book of Loagaeth" Speech from God for humanity. The book was then lost again in the Deluge of Noah.

The reception of Enochian started on March 26,when Kelley reported visions in the crystal of the twenty-one lettered alphabet characteristic of the language. A few days later, Kelley started receiving what became the first corpus of texts in the purported Angelic language. The book consists of 49 great letter tables, or squares made of 49 by 49 letters however, each table has a front and back side—making 98 49x49 tables in all. These come with English translations, thus providing the basis for the Enochian vocabulary.

The texts comprise 48 poetic verses, which in Dee's manuscripts are called "Claves Angelicae", or "Angelic Keys". The Keys are assigned certain functions within the magical system. I am therefore to instruct and inform you, according to your Doctrine delivered, which is contained in 49 Tables.Enochian Magic is an extremely powerful form of magic that is mainly practiced by angels. It is closely related to enochian language. Because there are many variations of angels, there are also many variations of angel magic that is specific to the angel.

For example, while angels are known to possess highly advanced and very powerful angelic magic with the ability to banish demons, resurrect the dead, and travel through alternative dimensions, other angels are unable to achieve these feats of magic.

However, angels can be limited on what they can do. This depends on heaven's laws or who is in command at the time, the factor of strength each angel's grace is, as well as other magic at play like sigils designed to weaken angels. Some other supernatural beings such as Eve and Leviathan can cut angels off from their power and prevent them from using their abilities.

Enochian magic is not exclusive to angels, however. Humans, demons and other beings, like the Whore of Babylon, well-versed in Enochian can use or counteract this magic.

It has been shown that if humans use certain Enochian Magic, it takes a toll on the caster's soul draining it until it's gone as with the case of Lily Sunder.

Angelic Grace the source of angels powers, is also the energy source that keeps Heaven in its place. If there isn't a sufficient amount of Angels in Heaven or an immensely powerful one, Heaven will collapse overtime and all the souls will be subsequently returned to Earth. With the loss of his archangel grace, Jack's Nephilim body fell out of balance between his angel and human halves and started to deteriorate and eventually caused him to die.

With the help of Castiel placing his soul back into his body from Heaven and the ritual taught to him by Lily Sunder, Jack was able to use Enochian magic to harness a small part of his soul to stabilize his condition to stay alive. With Enochian magic he was able to use a part of his soul to use his previous powers, but burned off pieces of his soul in the process each time.

Powers Immortality - Using Enochian magic, Lily was able to make herself immortal. However, this effect only lasted as long as she was using her magic and she began aging rapidly when she stopped. Super Strength - Lily is stronger than most humans, able to fight against a lower-level angel such as Benjamin fairly evenly. She was able to kick Castiel across an alleyway, but caught him by surprise when doing so.

Immunity - Lily has displayed an immunity to angelic abilities. Photokinesis - Lily has displayed the ability to emit a blinding blast of light to disorient her opponents. Healing - Lily has displayed the ability to heal herself in a similar manner to how an angel heals another being.

Using a ritual, Lily was able to cure Jack's fatal condition and save his life. Telekinesis - Lily has displayed the ability to move objects and people with her mind. She was strong enough to throw Ishim across a room, but could only hold him back a short time before he fought through it. Localization - Lily was able to locate Benjamin.

Categories :.Reprinted here with Permission. What follows is the beginning of a work in progress; any and all questions, suggestions and corrections are heartily encouraged. The student of Enochian magick is initially faced with the often-bewildering complexity of its structure.

Studying the published manuscript records of John Dee and Edward Kelly can be more confusing than helpful and often yields information that is at variance with the chief expositors of the system: the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley.

Later reconstructionists such as the Aurum Solis and Donald Tyson address some of these problems but leave many of them unsatisfactorily resolved. It is the purpose of this work to analyze this material and explain it in a useful and coherent manner for the use of both the student of the system and the practicing ceremonial magician.

The distinctions between these structures is necessarily not clear-cut, as each structure within the system is connected to other parts within its own subset and various significant parts are interconnected to parts within the other main meta-structures, interweaving the parts into a complex but harmonious whole.

These three divisions are:. The system of the 30 1 Aires 2 includes a substructure of Governors 3 and Parts of the Earth by which it is intimately tied to the Watchtower structure, and these in turn are correlated to the 12 Tribes of Israel and a system of angelic governance, peculiar to Enochian magick. This twelve-fold angelic rulership is the key by which the astrological associations are related to the parts of this aethyric system.

The Keys of Calls form the introduction and a part of this structure but also provide a further intersection with the Watchtower hierarchies that are, metaphysically speaking, below and within the Aires in the overall cosmological geometry of Enochian magick. The Sigillum Dei Aemeth and the various heptarchial elaborations form an extremely complex system of planetary and sevenfold magikal structures.

This is the earliest received portion of the entire system. It is related not only to the science of alchemy and the traditional seven-fold systems of Hermetic Science but to the various complexes of sevens that permeate biblical symbolism, from the seven days of creation in Genesis to the multiplex seven-fold combinations of Revelation.

The mythos of these paradigms is combined with its own unique imagery and Britannical historiography4 to explicate its often nearly impenetrable mysteries.

Each of its parts has its own talismanic geometry and cryptographic liturgy. These discrete artifacts delineate each part but as above they are interrelated: within themselves, with other parts of this subsystem and not only to the other meta-systems of Enochian magick but to identifiable structures without it, including works published by Dee in his own lifetime, Qabala, Biblical symbolism, Hermetic science and magick such as Agrippa 5Bruno 6Trithemius 7Abano 8Ptolemy 9 etc.

The various parts that are inclusive of the whole within this heptarchial structure are:.

The Watchtower structure is probably the most familiar part of Enochian magick. It has been popularized by the Golden Dawn and its descendants. In fact much of the material presented in the initial degrees of these orders, such as the Lesser Pentagram and Hexagram Rituals 10are designed to prepare the student for working with the ultimate integration of the various symbols of Hermetic and Cabalistic magick that is the heart of the second order of the Golden Dawn This integration and correlation of symbols is sometimes naturally derived from the angelic communications, sometimes based on the geometric indications in the Dee corpus12 and sometimes the wholly synthetic creation of the chiefs of the Golden Dawn.

There are significant problems with much of this synthetic material 13including the correlation of the Keys to the divisions of the Watchtowers, the derivation of angelic hierarchies and the directional mechanics of the Watchtowers themselves.

These problems will be elucidated and some solutions offered in the analysis of The Watchtowers, which follows this introduction and overview. The Watchtower structure begins with the Round Table of Nalvage and progresses to the construction of the Watchtowers themselves, where the Calls or Keys are both related and divergent. The Watchtowers are themselves complex magikal figures from which lengthy hierarchies of angels can be derived.

It should also be noted that the hierarchies thereof are related not only to the symbolism of the biblical books of Revelation and Ezekiel but provide geometric means of associating and conjuring various complex combinations of elemental, sub-elemental, planetary and zodiacal forces.

In the chapters following, each of these divisions will be dealt with in detail and the mechanics and literature of each analyzed. This analysis will proceed, naturally, from the Watchtower hierarchies of the elemental realms of the Earth through the planetary spheres of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth and the various heptarchial structures related to it, to the aethyric realms of the 30 Aires. The divisions of the Aires will then be correlated back to their earthly junctions within the network of the hierarchies of the Watchtowers showing how each part of the system is a thread in the complex tapestry that makes up the structure of Enochian magick.Download what you will.

It is a system of ceremonial magic based on the evocation and commanding of spirits. Dee and Kelley received instructions from angels and wrote them down in journals, including the Enochian Alphabet and a table of correspondences. There are similarities between the Enochian texts and various grimoires, such as the Heptameron.

It is through the Golden Dawn that Enochian Magic has become so well known, after the release of their once secret teachings by Israel Regardie and Aleister Crowley. However, the knowledge and instructions from the Golden Dawn were somewhat limited, being based on a single diary of John Dee. The Golden Dawn added planetary, elemental, and zodiacal attributions that are not found in the original Enochian magic system. Aleister Crowley had an extensive knowledge and practical experience with Enochian magic.

Crowley can be credited with the widespread use of Enochian by modern occultists and magicians. Modern occultists have found it difficult to reconstruct the Enochian systen, although great success has been achieved from studyingh the original manuscripts from the Sir Hans Sloane collection in the British Museum.

From these studies, various groups and authors have created a highly functional system of magic. One important part of modern Enochian magic is Enochian chess, first played in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and more recently extended and by Steve Nichols. Enochian magic is a complex system that requires dedication and rigourous study. Your email address will not be published.
