Grimoire of the Angels of Jewish Mysticism
Mysticism and mystical experiences have been a part of Judaism since the earliest days. The Torah contains many stories of mystical experiences, from visitations by angels to prophetic dreams and visions. The Talmud considers the existence of the soul and when it becomes attached to the body. Jewish tradition tells that the souls of all Jews were in existence at the time of the Giving of the Torah and were present at the time and agreed to the Covenant. There are many stories of places similar to Christian heaven and purgatory, of wandering souls and reincarnation. The Talmud contains vague hints of a mystical school of thought that was taught only to the most advanced students and was not committed to writing.
The mystical school of thought came to be known as Kabbalah, from the Hebrew Qof-Beit-Lamed, meaning "to receive, to accept." The word is usually translated as "tradition." In Hebrew, the word does not have any of the dark, sinister, evil connotations that it has developed in English. For example, the English word "cabal" (a secret group of conspirators) is derived from the Hebrew word Kabbalah, but neither the Hebrew word nor the mystical doctrines have any evil implications to Jews.
This work identifies the angels related to Jewish mysticism, and indicates their talismans and amulets which may be used to invoke the angels powers or protection. The Grimoire of the Angels of Jewish Mysticism is not a historical account of angels, but a practical working Grimoire, which may be used to communicate with these celestial beings. The chapters in the Grimoire are:
Section 1 - Introduction
Chapter 1 Angelology
Section 2 - The Angels
Chapter 2. The Magickal Procedure
Chapter 3. Talismans and Amulets
Chapter 4. Planetary Days and Hours
Chapter 5. The Malachim Script
Chapter 6. Demons in Jewish Mysticism
The second edition has been released. The new edition has had the amulets updated.
