If one could speak the language of Angels, it was believed one could directly interact with them. In , Dee mentioned in his personal journals that God had sent "good angels" to communicate directly with prophets. In , Dee teamed up with the seer Edward Kelley , although Dee had used several other seers previously. Their work resulted, among other things, in the reception of the Enochian or Angelical language. After his Fall from Paradise , Adam lost the language and constructed a form of proto- Hebrew based upon his vague memory of Angelical. This proto-Hebrew, then, was the universal human language until the time of the Confusion of Tongues at the Tower of Babel.

However, in modern occultism it is commonly known as Enochian. It is not quite clear how much of Enochian magic was put to use by Dee and Kelley. Indeed, whether Dee and Kelly ever practiced Enochian is still up for debate.
The angels allegedly told them not to work Enochian magic, and there are no diary records of works being done except for one healing talisman that they were instructed by the angels to make. The Angelical material of Dee and Kelley also had a considerable influence on the magic of Rosicrucianism.
They also traveled in what they called their Body of Light commonly known as the "astral body" in western occultism into these subtle regions and recorded their psychic experiences in a scientific manner.
Enochian as an operative system is difficult to reconstruct based upon original manuscripts, but contemporary occult organizations have attempted to make it usable.
They used four chessboards without symbols on them, just sets of colored squares, and each board is associated with one of the four elements of magic. According to Case, the system of Dee and Kelley was incomplete, lacked sufficient protection methods, and was in fact just the basis of an older, more complete Qabalistic system. The Aethyrs are the "heavens" or Aires of the system. Starting with the 30th Aethyr and working to the first, the magician explores only as far as his level of initiation will permit.
The calls are used to enter the various Aethyrs, in visionary states. The Aethyrs are conceived of as forming a map of the entire universe in the form of concentric rings which expand outward from the innermost to the outermost Aethyr. In a similar way to the methods used by magicians to scry upon the Qabalistic Tree of Life , which involves travelling astrally to each pathway and Sephira , magicians working the Enochian system record their impressions and visions within each of the successive Enochian Aethyrs.
The systems are comparable but not equivalent; while Enochian has 30 Aethyrs, there are a total of 32 Sephira and paths upon the Tree of Life. Each of the governors has a sigil which can be traced onto the Great Tablet of Earth. It is only necessary to vary appropriately the name of the Aethyr itself near the beginning of the call.
Once the Call is recited, the names of the Governors are vibrated one at a time and a record of the visions is kept. The use of Calls is rather complex and their usage should be made clear via one of the Enochian textbooks cited below.
The Great Table of Earth: The Elemental Watchtowers and their subdivisions[ edit ] The angels of the four quarters are symbolized by the Elemental "Watchtowers" — four large magickal word-square Tables collectively called the "Great Table of the Earth". Most of the well-known Enochian angels are drawn from the Watchtowers of the Great Table. In this way, the entire universe, visible and invisible, is depicted as teeming with living intelligences.
Each of the Elemental tablets is also divided into four sections by a figure known as the Great Central Cross. In addition to the four Elemental Watchtowers, a twenty-square cell known as the Tablet of Union aka The Black Cross, representing Spirit completes the representation of the five traditional elemental attributes used in magic - Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit. Again, these represent the traditional five magical elements Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit though in varying combinations.
The attribution of various Elements to the various pyramids is best depicted on a labelled and coloured version of the various Tablets; an Enochian texbook e. Enochian temple furniture[ edit ] Temple "furniture" required for the performance of Enochian magick includes: 1 The Holy Table, a table with a top engraved with a Hexagram , a surrounding border of Enochian letters, and in the middle a Twelvefold table cell engraved with individual Enochian letters.
The names on these talismans which are engraved on tin and placed on the surface of the Holy Table are those of the Goetia. The four smaller ones are placed under the feet of the Holy Table. The fifth and larger one about nine inches in diameter , is covered with a red cloth, placed on the Holy Table, and is used to support the "Shew-Stone" or "Speculum" crystal or other device used for scrying. Scrying is an essential element of the magical system.
Crowley habitually held a large topaz mounted upon a wooden cross to his forehead. Other methods include gazing into crystals, ink, fire or even a blank TV screen. Today[ edit ] Compared to other theories of magic , Enochian magic is often considered strikingly complex and difficult to grasp in its entirety.
Parts of the surviving manuscripts written by Dee have been lost. Some employ all the varieties in the original manuscripts with advice of modern practitioners on interpreting this mythology which both represented and tried to produce experience of the biblical temple mythology.
John Gee and other You Tube channels have information, but this is the channel with the most information. Magicians see the correct pronunciation of the Enochian letters, words, and calls to be integral to magical success in utilizing the Enochian system - the letters must be memorized and their pronunciations learned.
Fortunately, there have been several compilations of Enochian words made to form Enochian dictionaries which can act as a handy reference. A scholarly study is Laycock Many individual magicians or very small groups prefer Enochian magic to other forms as the ceremonial scale required is smaller than that needed for Masonic-style ritual work. On the other hand, elaborate equipment is required to perform Enochian magic properly, including correct copies of the various Tablets and diagrams and other apparatuses see "Enochian Temple Furniture" above.
