PREFACE; AN INTRODUCTION TO THIS MANUAL
This manual is meant to provide a convenient and reasonably complete source of all information required by the serious practitioner of Enochian Magick. The branch of Magick called Enochian was disclosed in modere times by Dr. John Dee (1527-1608). Dee was an authority on mathematics, navigation, astronomy, and optics. He was also the Astrologer Royal to Elizabeth 1. His magical Partner, Edward Talbott, who changed his name to Kelly, assisted him in the descriptions of the subtle regions known as the four Watchtowers and thirty Aethyrs. These, together with their presiding deities, formed the kernel of the powerful magical system now known as Enochian Magick. Dee has been called "a pioneerin spiritualism,"because he kept meticulous records of all of his magical operations. However, his primary approach was through the process known as "skying." Kelly would sit before a crystal, or "shew-stone," and describe whatever spirits or visions he saw. Dee scrupulously recorded all that Kelly told him. Often Angels from the Watchtowers or Aethyrs would assist them in their work. For example, one of their "guides" was a young elfin girl named Madimi who appeared over a period of seven years.
Little came of Dee's psychic investigations until late in the nineteenth century when a group of occultists and magicians took up the Magick. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn used words and phrases from Dee's Enochian
Magick in their magical rituals and writings. However, it was not until a magician rose to the grade of Adeptus Minor that he was given the keys to this magical system. Here Enochian invocations for skrying in the Spirit-Vision (a magical process sometimes called astral traveling) formed a part of their magical work. The Golden Dawn taught that Dee had merely rediscovered an ancient system known to the ill-fated Atlanteans thousands of years ago. The Enochian alphabet was said to have been a direct derivative of that which was used in Atlantis.
According to H.P. Blavatsky, "Enoch was a generic title, applied to, and borne by, scores of individuals, at all times and ages, and in every race and nation." (The Secret Doctrine) She equated Enoch with the Egyptian god Thoth, who gave language, law, medicine, and science to man. The term 'Enoch' meant Seer or Adept of the Secret Wisdom. Thus Enochian Magick was not created by a single individual but evolved gradually over time which is now lost in history. The Enochian alphabet and language may in fact be nearly as old as man, at least in this hemisphere. Certainly they bear striking similarities with the Necronomicon and with names used by Lovecraft and others, whose origins are now lost in our early history.
At the turn of this century, one of the Golden Dawn's members, Aleister Crowley, published some of the Order's magical papers dealing with Enochian Magick as well as some original work. Crowley acting as Kelly (a skryer), together with his associate, Victor Neuburg, who acted as Dee (a scribe), traveled through the Sahara Desert visiting one Aethyr each day (except the first two which Crowley had visited earlier when in Mexico). Crowley wrote of these visions in The Vision and The Voice, a remarkable work, although somewhat obscure and difficult to read, owing to the poetic and highly symbolic language used.
Using the works of Dee, the Golden Dawn, and Crowley, I attempted to gather together the quintessence of this Magick. I presented the basics of it in the book, Enochian Magic: A Practical Manual. This new manual is intended as a companion to that first book (hereafter referred to as ENOCHIAN MAGIC) by Llewellyn Publications. I have assumed that the reader has studied ENOCHIAN MAGIC or at least is familiar with the basic concepts of Enochian Magick. Enochian Magic contains the theory of how and why the Magick works. This manual, An Advanced Guide to Enochian Magick (with a final k), explores the many uses and applications of those basic principies.
The magical system described here and in Enochian Magic borrows heavily from both the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley. Students of this magical system are referred to The Golden Dawn by Israel Regardie and Crowley's The Vision and the Voice (Liber XXX), as well as Liber LXXXIX Vel Chanokh, both of which can be found in Gems of the Equinox by Israel Regardie. The Golden Dawn is available from Llewellyn Publications.
In my opinion, Enochian Magick ranks as one of the most powerful branches of Western Magick and occultism. It rivals the Hebrew Qabalah in scope, and provides an alternative to the more familiar system of Qabalism. One of the goals of this book is to open the Enochian system ta the public and to make it as available as the Qabalah. Although steeped in Western Tradition, it has not until now, ever been fully revealed.
The Enochian magical system appeals to the brain as well as the heart. Those who desire SeIf-Initiation or those who seek meaning in their daily life will be attracted to its study. If offers a 'new way' for those who are dissatisfied with their current understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. Those who seek for 'scientific answers' and rational explanations for Magick will also be drawn, because such explanations are included in this system (detailed in my forthcoming book, Enochian Physics).
Enochian Magick, with its emphasis on individual study, may better serve those who prefer not to participate in the group ceremonies of more traditional Wicca or Occult organizations. Although similar in theory, Enochian Magick is probably best practiced alone and in secret.
All true religious, philosophical, occult, and magical systems lead the sincere aspirant to the same goal-a dearer understanding of the meaning of life. It is sometimes described as many paths, all leading up the same mountain toward the same invisible peak. Some paths slowly meander around the mountain. These paths require little effort, and offer great security and many resting places along the way. Others attack the mountain in a direct and aggressive ascent which is both steep and dangerous. There are advantages and disadvantages to each path up the mountain slopes. Enochian Magick is a steep and precarious path. It is one that should not be undertaken lightly. It offers quick rewards but warns of fatal penalties for the unwary or unprepared.
I have written this book to help clarify the highly complex system of Enochian Magick for those who wish to practice it If Enochian Magick becomes better understood and more safely practiced as a result of this book, then its purpose will have been achieved.
