Description

The Qabbalah--the Jewish esoteric tradition--is richly woven with magical practices, from amulets and magic bowls to invocations and magical use of psalms. In this comprehensive and practical guide to Qabbalistic magic, Salomo Baal-Shem explains how to authentically perform rituals from the Qabbalistic tradition. The spells and rituals included range from basic "everyday" magic for health, prosperity, love, protection, and prophetic dreams to advanced high-level magic such as invoking the highest angelic powers or creating an astral life-form, or Golem. Revealing the occult teachings of the 4th-century Book of the Mysteries, the magical uses of 150 psalms, and how to harness the power of Hebrew letters in talisman designs, the author also shows you how to contact the Maggid, or Divine inner teacher, or attain the spiritual vision of the Merkabah. A thoroughly accessible guide to the magic of the Qabbalah, this book also covers the underlying spiritual principles and history of these powerful magical practices.show more

Review quote

"Qabbalistic Magic is an excellent twenty-first-century grimoire: a first-rate magical cookbook, which is both comprehensive and very practical." Ronald Hutton, British historian and author of The Triumph of the Moon "What has been achieved here is a masterpiece of research and love of the subject itself. I give it my highest recommendation; I marvel at the dedication and scholarship that has gone into it. I predict that in the future it will become the definitive book on Qabbalistic magic." Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, director of studies at Servants of the Light School of Occult Science "Qabbalistic Magic is a modern masterpiece of the genre, a great work of mystical art." Parallel Perspectives, June 2011 "I would definitely recommend this book to Qabbalistic magicians. It is probably nothing like you're used to, but it is important to understand the basis of your tradition. You may even find some new inspiration from older methods. I certainly did."
