Enochian Monad Model

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

The model of the universe used to explain Enochian Magick is called the Enochian Monad Model. The Monad is a single, indivisible consciousness center above the first and highest Aethyr. When this Monad descends into the Aethyrs, it divides itself into two dualistic parts: a subjective consciousness center, or Self, and its objective environment, or World. The model produces the following ten axioms:

1. First Enochian Axiom: Humankind and every entity in existence, is in essence a Monad. This monadic essence expresses itself as a subjective Self and as an objective World.

2. Second Enochian Axiom: Humankind’s geometric equivalent is the sphere. The center of the sphere is the Self. The surface of the sphere is the World.

3. Third Enochian Axiom: The Self is conscious individuality.

4. Fourth Enochian Axiom: The World is where the Self finds itself at any given point in time and space.

5. Fifth Enochian Axiom: Every geometric point in space is a Monad at some stage of self-expression.

6. Sixth Enochian Axiom: Any Self can communicate with any other Self, insofar as their Worlds intersect.

7. Seventh Enochian Axiom: A World is defined as a set of intersections of a host of Worlds at any given point in time and space.

8. Eighth Enochian Axiom: Subsets of Selfs are mutually exclusive.

9. Ninth Enochian Axiom: Subsets of Worlds may be either exclusive or inclusive.

10. Tenth Enochian Axiom: The essence of each Monad allows multitudinous expression, but no Self can ever separate itself from, or exist independently of, its World.

Although these axioms may at first appear confusing, a little study and thought will reveal their simplicity. They express an old poetic and mystical definition of humankind as a circle, whose center is nowhere and whose circumference is everywhere. If we think of the center as monadic consciousness (the Self) and the circumference as infinite Space (the World of the Self), then it becomes obvious that the Enochian Monad Model is but a slight enhancement of this ancient mystical definition of humankind.

The Enochian Monad Model is thus a modern expression of an ancient idea. It does not, in itself, propose anything new. The ancient Egyptians, for example, symbolized the Self as a winged globe; the globe was a consciousness-center whose mobility was symbolized by the pair of wings. Egyptians considered centers to be masculine and circumferences to be feminine. Thus they personified the World in the goddess Nut (or Nuit), who is often shown arched over it. She represented the sky exoterically, and infinite Space esoterically. The winged globe was a symbol for the god Horns. This symbolism is repeated throughout western occultism, and is included in the Monad Model of Enochian Physics as well.

When we are told we are being taken to a haunted location, long before we reach our destination, our mind will have already created its own ghosts and demons. In fact, the mind is the common denominator where any respectable paranormal investigator is concerned; and whether you are a sceptic or believer, you can never be certain exactly what... read this article
