“Above all of the possible magic words to be invoked, the Divine Names are held in the highest regard by priest-magicians and wizards – meaning, of course: “names” for God.“ Joshua Free explains in the new Fifth Anniversary Second Edition of Mardukite Liber-K: ENOCHIAN MAGIC & KABBALAH: SUMMONING ANGELS, ALIENS, UFOs & OTHER DIVINE ENCOUNTERS.
“Putting aside the more ‘conventional’ implements of the magical arts; the garments and regalia, the tools and sigil seals – it is NAMES and WORDS that appear most significant when encountering ‘higher forms’ of the esoteric mysteries…“
Similar to the way in which ‘existence’ becomes more dense and fragmented as the varying lights and veils are perfected until we reach the manifested existence within human perceptual abilities, the Names of God became increasingly ‘mutated’ with time and the myriad of ‘language semantics’ that were later applied to this form of cryptomancy.
Given the emphasis put on ‘words’ and ‘names’ in the Anunnaki tradition – as found evident on Sumerian and Babylonian cuneiform clay tablets – it is not surprising that we should see a mystical lore related to the same carried by the priests and magicians of the later derived system-traditions: the Kabbalah, Egypto-Greek Hermetics and of course native Chaldean and Zoroastrian movements – all of which based on a ‘personal’ relationship with Divinity by means of a ‘secret’ or ‘esoteric’ lore that enabled them to call upon and recognize these ‘forces’.
Priests of the Anunnaki tradition acted as intermediaries between the human population and the beings perceived as “Divine” that often resided in their very cities, occasionally occupying the ‘ziggurat-temples‘ built on the highest mounds of each region. In the proto-Sumerian traditions, the priest-magicians were the only ones who were able to transmit any communication with the Anunnaki “Sky Gods” of their observed pantheon.
This shifts during the post-Sumerian or Babylonian-Mardukite period, as a rise in local or ‘personal’ magic becomes present among the common folk. During this post-Sumerian period, many individual members of the Anunnaki group became patron ‘central’ deities to different areas, an act that furthered the fragmentation of knowledge.
After the magical arts were given to the people, the Hermetic attempts began at ‘unlocking’ the esoteric secrets withheld by the original priests and caretakers of the traditions. Uncovering Divine Names was one of the more ‘paramount’ acts to making the newer systems function – a means of going around the intermediaries socially and politically installed to oversee the religion and spirituality of the people. It is here that we begin to see ‘magic’ as a part of ‘counter-culture’ existing outside of, and in many cases in opposition to, the Realm.
Rather than being a state-religious affair celebrated openly in public view, the practice of magic began to turn ‘inward’ and was pushed further and further underground as the growing populations and varying personalities each had their influence on its character.
Mystical use of the Kabbalah, such as we find with the Enochian system and other methods involved in the late 19th century ‘magical revival’ by members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, is heavily dependent on the use of “Divine Names” or other “less-divine” (even “infernal”) names as words of power. Although derived from the same sources, this is generally typical only of post-Babylonian systems, at the Age of Aries (c.2100 BC).
We see evidence of it throughout the Hermetic traditions of the last 3,000 years and in virtually every example of ‘magical grimoire’ or ‘tome of magick’ at our disposal. Clearly, the author-carriers of this type of lore treated the names as ‘sacred formulas’ critical to the success of the ‘transcendental operations.‘
Starting around 2,000 years ago, they started being classified as exactly that: formulas.
