The Key of Solomon (Clavicula Salomonis) edited by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers

The Key of Solomon (Clavicula Salomonis) edited by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers
For a reprint of Mathers' edition, see listing at INTRODUCTION by Joseph H. Peterson. The Key of Solomon is the most famous and important of all Grimoires, or handbooks of Magic. As A.E. Mr. It is true that the Mathers edition would not be considered critical by modern standards of scholarship (but Waite's editions of various esoteric texts leave far more to be desired than Mathers'). Of course, none of the manuscripts used by Mathers qualify as "ancient" or even "medieval"; the oldest is probably 16th century. Mathers' translation is almost entirely dependant on French Colorno manuscript exemplars dating 18th century. In addition, Mathers made significant use of Lansdowne 1202, even though he pronounces it "more concise in style." Also heavily used by Mathers was LES VÉRITABLES CLAVICULES DE SALOMON, Traduites de l'Hebreux en langue Latine Par le Rabin ABOGNAZAR (Lansdowne MSS 1203.) Sloane 1307 is in Italian, and is also ca. 17th century. Greek Latin Italian English Hebrew French Related:  Magick and Alchemy

Ouroboros - Fullmetal Alchemist Wiki - Wikia Ouroboros refers to the ancient mystical symbol representing a dragon devouring its own tail. It represents the eternal cycle of life and death. The circular affinity suggests the eternal cycle of life death or death and birth that happens to each life born. The head of the dragon represents life, while the tail as it is being bitten represents the end of life, the circular motion shows the perpetual cycle of life and death as the dragon consumes its tail. Before learning of their identities as Homunculi, Edward referred to the individuals behind the odd circumstances in Amestris as "Members of the Ouroboros". Locations of Ouroboros tattoos Edit In all versions of the story: Edit Lust's Ouroboros is located on her upper sternum, just above her breasts. In the manga and 2009 anime: Wrath's Ouroboros is located on his left eye (same as Pride in the 2003 anime). In the 2003 anime only: Trivia

Lemegeton Clavicula Salomonis ('The Lesser Key of Solomon') The Lesser Key of Solomon This digital edition by Joseph H. Peterson, Copyright © 1999. All rights reserved. Note: A considerably enlarged edition of the Lesser Key of Solomon is now available from Red Wheel/Weiser publishers. Detailing the ceremonial art of commanding spirits both good and evil Edited by Joseph H. Kasson, MN 55944 March 27, 1999 Copyright © 1999 Contents Acknowledgments I would like to thank the British Museum for allowing me to study the manuscripts firsthand, and for their help in copying the manuscripts onto microfilm. Introduction The Lemegeton is a popular handbook of sorcery known from the 17th century [1] in more or less the same form as I will present it. The name Lemegeton is probably naively invented because of the compiler's ignorance of Latin. The major texts used for this edition have been all from the British Library Manuscript collection. I have followed Sloane 3825 for this edition except for the Ars Notoria. The parts of the Lemegeton are as follows: Goetia

Numerology In many of the world's alphabets, the symbols used for letters also have a numerical significance. This is called the number-in-name characterology or numerology. Numerology was also used by the ancients in encoding secrets from their oppressors. The names we use may have a significant meaning in numerology as they reveal the personality we have, our destinies or goals in life. Of all the predictive arts, numerology is probably the easiest to learn as all that's required is a pen, paper and an elementary knowledge of arithmetic. The numbers that matter most are 1 through 9. In order to get started, I'll use the name of a well-known person together with his birthday. Birthday: 14th March 1879 or 14-03-1879 A way of visualizing the numbers that a name has is by listing the numbers according to the human personality. Now looking at the vertical lines, the line of 3, 2, 1 is made of the numbers of thought which relate to the "air" element. The way numerology works is by adding each number.

Rock Key The Rock Identification Key - by Don PeckRock Key Table of Contents What Are Rocks? Rocks are what the crust of the earth is made of. They are the mountains and the bottom of the ocean. They are everywhere on earth, but often buried under soil. [ Return to Rock Key Table of Contents ] What Minerals Form Rocks? theomagica - On Crossing the Abyss The experience of Crossing the Abyss is triggered by a liminal rite and results in a series of liminal experiences in our everyday lives. It describes nothing other than the actual process of crossing the Abyss, i.e. the passing over the visionary threshold that lies between creation and divinity - as well as hopefully a safe return of the practitioner into creation. The term is not specific to a particular rite or tradition of magic but describes an underlying pattern of human existence: When we cross from creation to divinity we are stripped bare of all created forms that we hold as part of our own being: our body, our ego, our memories, our mind, etc. What passes through to the other side of the threshold is the individualised spark of divinity that we carry within ourselves. Rather than the crossing itself, it’s the process of re-integration into the world of creation upon one’s return that can be the even more problematic and painful experience. It was a pretty full on year.

The Key of Knowledge (Clavicula Salomonis) Add. MS. 36674 Transcribed from British Library, Additional manuscript 36674. Edited by Joseph H. Peterson, Copyright © 1999. All rights reserved. The present text is a sixteenth century English translation of the Key of Solomon, the most famous of Grimoires, or handbooks of magic. In producing his 1889 edition of the Key of Solomon, three manuscripts escaped S.L. The following is a complete transcription of the English Key of Solomon from Add. 36674, with alternate readings from Sl. 3645. The catalog entry reads as follows: 36674. Contrary to what the catalog entry states, nearly all of this text does in fact closely parallel Mathers' edition, although the wording is simpler in the present text. Collation: It is also full of Christian references which are absent in Mathers' edition and other manuscripts of the Clavicula. I have taken the liberty of moving the table of contents for book 2 to the beginning of this transcript for convenience. [1. [5r] [5v is blank] [11v] [13r] [15r] [16r] [18v] [19v]

Reiki Traditions[edit] Today many branches of Reiki exist, though there exist two major traditions, respectively called Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki. Traditional Japanese Reiki[edit] The term Traditional Japanese Reiki is normally used to describe the specific system that formed from Usui's original teachings[41] and the teachings that did not leave Japan. Usui Reiki Ryōhō Gakkai (臼井靈氣療法學會 in Traditional Chinese Characters, meaning "Usui Reiki Healing Method Learning Society")[43] is the name of the society of Reiki masters founded by Mikao Usui. The Japanese Reiki hand positions presented in the Usui Reiki Ryōhō Hikkei (臼井靈氣療法必携, Usui Reiki Treatment Handbook) as used and compiled by Usui are considerably more extensive than the hand positions used in Western Reiki.[47] Western Reiki[edit] After being trained by Hayashi, Takata went back to Hawaii, taking Reiki with her. Teachings[edit] Training[edit] First degree[edit] Second degree[edit] Third degree[edit] Variations[edit]

Galactic Mayan Time Science Project on Planet Earth > GaianXaos Welcome to the present moment. This project is primarily concerned with the Classic Mayan civilization of Central America. The information is broken up into several sections. Firstly, we will explore the history of the Maya and their rise to civilization. We will then investigate the heart of their beliefs concerning the Universe in which they lived and their understanding of Time and Nature. We will connect their understanding of harmonic resonance with the basic structure of their system of mathematics. In Lake’ch: Mayan for “I am another yourself” and principle of universal love Origins and timeline of Mayan civilization on Earth The roots of the Mayan civilization can be traced back thousands of years to the Olmecs, an earlier civilization that inhabited an area along the Gulf of Mexico. The Olmec left behind many beautiful artifacts including stone and jade sculptures, many of which are characteristically related to the jaguar. The Maya are also preceded by the Zapotecs of Oaxaca.
