Abracadabra Paper - An ancient and powerful invocation.
While ‘Abracadabra’ is commonly used by stage magicians today for the entertainment of the masses, with a lengthy history, this ancient word is originally thought to be a powerful invocation with mystical powers. While it's origin is not fully known, its' use dates back to the second century to ward off negative energy, cure physical aliments and protect the wearer.
There are a number of different theories about where the word abracadabra originated. Examples include:
Derived from Aramaic, a group of Semitic languages used for divine worship.
Derived from the phrase avra kedabra which means "I will create as I speak".
Hebrew origin: The word is derived from three Hebrew words, ab (father), ben (son) and ruah acadosh (holy spirit).
Chaldean origin: The Chaldean phrase abbada ke dabra refers to "‘perish like this word".
Thelema origin: The word Abrahadabra is considered the magical formula for their current Aeon (age).
It was often worn as a magical charm, and written in a triangular format. The word was written eleven times, dropping one letter each time. While most accounts reflect this charm being used until the Middle Ages, there is also record of it being used by a small church in the 1200’s and in the 1600’s in an attempt to drive demons out of a girl possessed.
Keep the Abracadabra paper displayed in your sacred space as a powerful reminder of your personal magic. The definition of a Magician is 'one who is skilled in magic'. Traditionally what is generally not understood (or misunderstood), such as astrology, crystal work, etc. has been called magic by observers. Ultimate magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen.
What are you creating? Say the word...
Additionally The Abracadabra Paper also reads:
"Perhaps somewhere in between dreaming up something and it exisiting lies a space of creation. That space sounds exciting. That space sounds full of potential. If it's true that words hold the power to create and destroy, here in this space, let them serve to inspire."
