Introduction to Enochian Magick

This article was written by Gerald and Betty Scheuler on May 10, 2002
posted under Enochian Magick

Magick is broadly defined as the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with the will. Any time we will something to happen, and that something comes about, we have conducted a magical operation. In truth, therefore, we are all magicians. We conduct magical operations all day long, and take them for granted.

The reason we take most of our willed actions for granted is that we are well aware of the means by which the action comes about. For example, suppose you are thirsty, and you will want a drink of water. By filling a glass with water and drinking it, you have brought about a willed change. Although this is an overly simplistic example, it demonstrates the fundamental principle of Magick—the directed will can bring about a change through any suitable means.

Magick asserts that there is no such thing as a miracle. The "suitable means" through which magical operations work are always in accordance with natural law. When well-known laws or principles are used, we tend to denigrate the action as mundane. Conversely, when little-known laws or principles are used, we tend to elevate the action from anywhere between the magical and the miraculous. In reality, all of the laws of the universe are equal; it is only our ignorance of those lesser-known laws that makes their successful use so spectacular.

There are many schools of Magick, each teaching from a different angle and emphasizing different aspects of western occultism, whose fountain source lies in ancient Egypt. One branch, or school, is the Enochian. As you would expect, Enochian Magick shares a great deal of its teachings with other schools, especially the Qabalistic. Its central message is similar to that of most major religions: there exists a path which leads us from the physical world of mortality upward into the spiritual world of immortality. The fundamental teachings of Enochian Magick address ways in which to tread this path.

Name one religion or type of spiritual system that doesn't incorporate music into its worship services in some way. It's not easy, is it? From singing hymns to beating drums, and from the rhythmic chanting of prayers to the soaring organ fugues of Bach, music is a spiritual tool that connects mind and body to the divine spirit.
