Re: [abramelin] Re: Clarification (Concerning the LHP)
- I hate to reply to a well written long post with just one sentence, but here goes anyways. You definitely hit the nail on the head there when you talked about after meeting your HGA and the last bit of the working only being the *beginning* and then you start! :)

dear Frater Hauss
and all You great brothers and sisters
after joining the group I watched Your conversation for a few days. It
is thrilling to go through all the statements as I have some experience
with the inner work. Therefore I call You brothers and sisters as none
of You has communicated things that I didn't meet on my various ways.
But not everything of the said experiences are Abramelin experiences.
Some is very psycho-logistic some is too rational. One fact is evident:
Abramelin is not Shamanistic.
I liked the sentence, that if You start it Satanistic, You will not
And: "You can not fail."
My own insight is, that the Abramelin never ends. Surely You cannot stop
in the middle. Though it will bring You a result, but going through to
the end, You will see it is an initiation and then YOU start. The
Abramelin then will send You back home into the "Old World" and You find
Your way through the middle east countries, where civilization started
and you're heading via greek empire of the classic and the Roman sphere
finally to France which taught us liberty and equality and brotherhood
not so many years ago. It finally is the journey through your own
civilization and socialization and spreading of consciousness.
Meeting the Angel is not the final experience, it is the initial experience.
I found the many small advices within each of the three periods are
also to be seen as a collection of exerzices. Each You can do
separately. Like periods of silence, periods without sex, periods of
certain food and so on.
The question of the duration of the periods is easy:
three times two months is nothing. I am an astrologer and what are two
months? If you're heading to 18 months sounds good just for the fact,
that the natural cycle of one year is icluded. And it is the doubling of
the 9 Months. It makes much sence.
If You see the length of the periods from the point of
time-is-not-important then it also is self evident, that You choose a
duration that lasts longer than Your feeling can control. Two months are
something to wait for. It is schoolkid exercise. It is the same fault as
if You do Yoga using an alarm clock. The fifth or tenth time Your
subconscous will know when it is over and You start "coming back"
waiting for the end of term. Good, or real Yoga starts, when You sit and
once forget time. If it is two minutes or two hours, never mind.
So if You do the Ritual do it for so many days, that You cannot count
them. Neither intuitively, nor consciously. More than hundred days each
period is good. Abraham von Worms modelled it around the jewish
calendar, so it fits to the big holidays of the Monotheisitc religions
as well as the Pagans. That's it and it makes sence.
After all there are experiences relating to each period. If You made
them, the thing had it's peak. Your inner feeling, Your intuition would
tell You if it is good to start the next period. They might be different
Time is a hidden enemy.
Wenn nicht mehr Zahlen und Figuren
sind Schlüssel aller Kreaturen
- when Numbers and figures are not longer the keys to creatures (and
This is avoiding time measuring, but also means, when Abraham von Worms
says, never _learn_ a prayer out of heart. Only learn to pray out of
Your heart, spontaneously, intense, intuitive, mindless, without
thinking. Pray as if You weep or as if You laugh. Then You do it with
the right thought and intention. You might loose the reason and wish
which was fore- or background for praying, but You find the right
content. The words find themselves, not Your brain has to find them.
Spiritual communicaton has no purpose. This is a big error in
rationalistic, intellectdomesticated practical thought. Communication is
fulfilling the needs of the spiritual world. Call them, tell them and
they give You what is in Your need. Give without asking and take without
So don't learn "right" words and on the other hand, don't count and
measure. Don't set a time like a frame. AvW lead through three jewish
holidays. These are related to natural cycles, related to Your own
feeling with the seasons. So the time comes "by itself" not because of a
frame. Just go for two summers and a winter.
I could go on writing. Please apologize if too long or too hard to
understand. I just end now.
I wish You luck,
share my love and blessed be
