– Babylonia By Erica Reiner
Akkadian King Ashurbanipal (𒀭𒊹𒆕𒌉𒍑) was a King who lived in the Neo-Assyrian Empire from 668 bce to 627 bce, the son of Esarhaddon and the last strong ruler of the Empire, which is usually dated around 1000 bce. He was called King of Assyria, King of Babylon, King of Sumer, King of Akkadia, King of Kush, King of Egypt, King of the Four Corners of the World.
He is famed for amassing a significant collection of cuneiform documents for his royal palace at Nineveh. The city was also known as Ninuwa in Mari, Ninawa in Aramaic; ܢܸܢܘܵܐ in Syriac and Nainavā (نینوا) in Persian. The city was later said to be devoted to “the goddess Ishtar of Nineveh” and Nina was one of the Sumerian and Assyrian names of that goddess. The city was also known as Ninuwa in Mari; Ninawa in Aramaic; ܢܸܢܘܵܐ in Syriac; and Nainavā (نینوا) in Persian. Nabī Yūnus is the Arabic for “Prophet Jonah”. Location today is Mosul, Nineveh Governorate in Iraq.
The original meaning of the name Nineveh referred to one of the great Goddesses of Northern Iraq region of Mesopotamia and her cuneiform for Ninâ (𒀏) is the abundant and nourishment of the Fish is within a house (cf. Aramaic nuna, “fish”).and indicated a Goddess associated originally of Hurrian origin. Or possibly the Fish Goddess “Derceto” of the city of Ascalon (Syria).
While he was the crown prince at Nineveh, Ashurbanipal learned to read and write cuneiform in both Sumerian and Akkadian and during his reign, it became a special fascination for him. Esarhaddon had collected documents before him, but Ashurbanipal focused his attention on the oldest tablets, sending out agents to look for them in Babylonia. A copy of one of his letters was found at Nineveh, written to the governor of Borsippa, asking for old texts, and specifying what the content should be–rituals around water control and spells to keep a person safe while in battle or walking in the country or entering the palace, and how to purify villages.
Nineveh where all the tablets of their languages and stories, rituals and life, was one of the oldest and greatest cities in antiquity. The area it occupied was originally settled as early as 7000 bce, during the late Neolithic period. Deep sounding at Nineveh uncovered soil layers that have been dated to early in the era of the Hassuna archaeological culture.
By 3000 bce Nineveh, the area had become an important religious center for the Mesopotamian Goddess Ishtar. The early city (and subsequent buildings) was constructed on a fault line and, consequently, suffered damage from a number of earthquakes. One such event destroyed the first temple of Ishtar, which was rebuilt in 2260 bce by the Akkadian king Manishtushu.
The Books – The texts themselves from both Babylonia and Assyria – Medical: special diseases or parts of the body, plants, and stones for the curing of diseases. Lexical: syllabaries and archaic word lists, grammatical texts. Epics: Gilgamesh, Anzu myth, the Epic of Creation, literary myths about Ashurbanipal. Religious: liturgies, prayers, cult songs and hymns, both monolingual and bilingual, lore from exorcists and lamentations. Divination: Neo-Assyrians told the future by investigating sheep entrails and Astrology, Astronomy: movements of the planets, stars, and their constellations, mostly for astrological (divinatory) purposes.
The greatness of Nineveh was short-lived and around 627 bce, after the death of its last great king Ashurbanipal, the Neo-Assyrian empire began to unravel through a series of bitter civil wars between rival claimants for the throne, and in 616 bce Assyria was attacked by its own former vassals, the Babylonians, Chaldeans, Medes, Persians, Scythians and Cimmerians.
In about 616 BC Kalhu was sacked, the allied forces eventually reached Nineveh, besieging and sacking the city in 612 bce, following bitter house-to-house fighting, after which it was razed. Most of the people in the city who could not escape to the last Assyrian strongholds in the north and west were either massacred or deported out of the city and into the countryside where they founded new settlements.
Many unburied skeletons were found by the archaeologists at the site. The Assyrian empire then came to an end by 605 bce, the Medes and Babylonians dividing its colonies between themselves. Assyria, including the Nineveh region, continued to exist as a geo-political entity (Achaemenid Assyria, Athura, Assuristan etc.) under the rule of various empires until its dissolution in the mid-7th century ce.
There have been a few clues of my Mesopotamian life besides the struggles and pain of karmic purification for almost ten years. One was a white deer that showed up in 2013 and 2014 and then a deer who would come around, and was missing its one horn that showed up a few times in 2016 and 2017 that were signs. I have had deer medicine, totem and mysteries from the beginning of my first out of body vision on the day of the Harmonic Convergence, Aug of 1987 when a deer came into the yard, when I was out of body receiving my prophecy for what was to come in the next 30 years.
Deer totem is about suffering and making sacrifices (because it feeds many other large animals. I wasn’t sure back in 2013 and after why the deer were coming, which my ex dark apprentice saw some of them also, but they were my signs for my past life as I had deer medicine for forty years. Now I know why the ancient deer came, both the white one and the one horned. Also always knew that the one horned was not a Unicorn, it was a Deer when the Soul was misused and had done bad things, then the one horned deer would show up.
ANCIENT MAGIC OF MESOPOTAMIA
There were two forms of oil that were used in divination in ancient Babylon and Mesopotamia, one that was for the sweeter things in life (also healing) and that was Honey and the other, which was an earthier form of manifestation was Oil, especially Oil from Olives and later Grapes. Water was also a huge ritual liquid but I cannot find any of the Cuneiform to read, seems only PhDs can access those.
Women rulers in Mesopotamia were extremely rare, but one woman commanded an Empire stretching from Asia Minor to western Iran. She was Queen Sammu-ramat who only ruled for five years. Her Hellenized name was Semiramis, an Assyrian Queen of Babylon.
She was married to King Shamshi Adad V, who reigned from 823-811 bce and was the mother of King Adadnirari III. She was born in Ashkelon (Isreal) and was picked out by King Ninus who fell in love with her uniqueness, bravery and beauty. When she married him, she became Queen of Assyria. Within a few years her husband died and she took charge as regent Queen (for her son who was still a child).
During her reign, she ordered a new city to be built on the banks of the Euphrates, what we know today as… Babylon. The Royal palace and temple of Marduk, and one of the seven wonders of the world. Her hanging gardens of Babylon were famous all over the Mesopotamian region.
Babylon Mythology (Writer Joshua J. Mark):
“According to Diodorus, Semiramis was conceived when Aphrodite became angered at the Fish Goddess Derceto of the city of Ascalon (in Syria) and “inspired in her a violent passion for a certain handsome youth among her votaries; and Derceto gave herself to the Syrian and bore a daughter, but then, filled with shame of her sinful deed, she killed the youth and exposed the child in a rocky desert region, while as for herself, from shame and grief she threw herself into the lake and was changed as to the form of her body into a fish”
The child would have died, but a flock of doves came to her aid and fed her milk from their beaks, which they took from nearby settlements and, later, they also fed her cheese. They kept the baby warm by wrapping themselves around her. The farmers, noticing the loss of their cheese and milk, eventually went looking for the cause and found the one-year old by the lake surrounded by doves. She was taken home by a farmer named Simmas, who called his found daughter “Semiramis” which, according to Diodorus, means “doves” not high heaven.
She grew into a beautiful young woman who was as widely known for her intelligence and grace as for her appearance. One day, the governor of Syria, a man named Onnes, visited the farm, saw her, and fell in love with her. He asked Simmas for her hand in marriage and it was granted. Diodorus writes, “And since the other qualities of Semiramis were in keeping with the beauty of her countenance, it turned out that her husband became completely enslaved by her, and since he would do nothing without her advice he prospered in everything” Onnes advanced his career and position at court through taking the advice of his wife until he was among the king’s most trusted counselors.
The great woman she was, who founded the most famous City of the ancient world in the Middle East, Babylon was built with two enormous palaces connected by an underground tunnel, embankments to hold back the river from flooding the city, and then proceeded on from there to military campaigns. It has been noted by many historians that Diodorus’ account of her campaign were similar to those of Alexander the Great and her conquest of the Medes likewise.
Not wanting to be dominated by another man, she took a series of lovers. She died at the age of 62, having ruled for 42 years and turned into a dove which flew up into the heavens. Another account is that, upon her death, the doves that had helped her in her youth returned and carried her off into the sky.”
Ancient Mesopotamian “House of the Water Sprinkling” was a purification
Ritual often performed together with the btt rimki ritual after Eclipses of the Moon.
The moon is rightly believed
to be the star of the spirit
that saturates the earth
and fills bodies by its approach
and empties them by its departure.
The blood of woman even increases
and diminishes with its light. Leaves
and herbs are sensitive to it as the same
force that penetrates into all things.
~ Pliny the Elder
It is difficult for people living in the shadows of the full and end of the patriarchal monotheistic heritage of gods, religions, the military and sciences to understand how the paternal creator we associate with the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic religions had long ago evolved naturally from woman’s cultures before men took over through violence, and military force.
The Macedonian Star was also the
Star of Mesopotamia 1000 years earlier.
It is the symbol of the Moon.
HĀRUT and MĀRUT Origin of All Magic from these two demons of Babylon (source: by Joshua J. Mark) – Harut and Marut were two fallen angels who taught mankind Magic in Babylon.
Phoenix: “This means that these two dark angels who spoke, like god spoke to Solomon, Moses, and the rest of them. They were really just the Soulless ones who are humans – who were so dark, that lost their souls and without souls you can never reincarnate again. Thus making them mental bodied beings only (who sleeping people call aliens.) That is the root of God cult cultures from the very beginning and what dark angels are.”
Harut and Marut are mentioned once in the Koran in a passage admonishing (Jewish) disbelievers who follow the teaching of the Satans (Šayāṭin) at the time of Solomon.“Solomon did not disbelieve, but the Satans disbelieved, teaching the people magic [siḥr] and what had been sent down to the two fallen angels in Babel, Hārut and Mārut; they do not teach anyone without first saying:
‘We are only a temptation, so do not disbelieve,’ so they learn from them means by which they separate man and wife; but they do not injure any one thereby, except by the permission of Allah” The origins of the angels and the nature of their crime are left unexplained, so theologians and Koranic commentators sought to explain the episode by utilizing Talmudic, Syriac, Iranian, and even Greek fables (see below). They came up with various traditions, most comprehensively collected by Ṭabari and best studied by Enno Littmann (see bibliography). Side by side with the purely Islamic versions, there also developed a Muslim-Persian rendering which will be treated below.
The Islamic version can be summarized as follows. As mankind multiplied, their sinfulness and debauchery led the angels to complain that God was too lenient towards them. Which in layman’s terms meant that the ruling royals complained about the peasants to the Kings.
But God (The Kings) replied that if the angels had been exposed to the same passions and pressures which drove men to commit these carnal sins, they too would not be able to control themselves. The angels volunteered to go down and live on earth like human beings but refrain from committing crimes like them.
God or the Kings made this possible. Two of the purest and noblest of the angels, Hārut and Mārut, descended on earth and for a while led a blameless life until the day they were asked to arbitrate between a beautiful woman (described as a princess from Fārs in some commentaries) and her husband.
The two angels became infatuated with her, but she resisted their carnal desires until they granted her a great favor. Some said that she discovered from them the ineffable Name of God that had enabled them to ascend to Heaven at night. By evoking it, she went up and affixed herself to the sky as the planet Venus (Zahrā Zohra), leaving the sinful angels powerless on earth. (So the first blaming of the patriarchal society on letting a woman (Venus) take the fall to corrupt the angels where the whore virgin myths began).
Others maintained that she introduced them to wine, whereupon they murdered an innocent passer-by. Angered by all this, God was about to inflict a drastic punishment on the faithless angels, but, at the intercession of a great angel (or a prophet, Edris in some versions), He allowed them to choose between perpetual torment in this world or infernal punishment in the next.
They chose the former, and were chained and imprisoned in a well in Babylon. According to Ḥamd-Allāh Mostawfi the well was “at the summit of the hill.” Seekers of forbidden magical arts went there to be instructed by the fallen angels.
The Kufan scholar Abu Moḥammad Solaymān b. Meh-rān Aʿmaš (d. 148/765) is quoted as saying that Ḥajjāj ordered the Rʾas al-Jālut (the exilarch) to guide an inquisitive, pious Muslim to the well, and “they saw the two angels, massive as two mountains, hanging upside down, their head barely above the ground, and chained from the ankle to the knees. In awe the pious man uttered the name of Allah, whereupon the chained ones trembled violently, and their commotion so frightened him that he fainted” (Qazvini, Āṯār al-belād)
Muslim philologists recognized that Hārut and Mārut were not of Arabic origin, but they represented the Avestan Haurvatāt Ḵordād and Amərətāt/Amurdād two of the Aməša Spəntas who were the guardians of waters and plants respectively. He further noted that the ‘Zaharā’ of the story who became the planet Venus was none other than Anāhid (q.v.) or Bidoḵt (a Nabataean word according to some tafsirs and of Persian origins according to others).
The loss of the initial a- in Mārut at such an early date has other parallels. By the time Agathangelos wrote, Armenian had combined the two names Haurvatāt and Ameretāt to form Hauraut-Mauraut, the name for a flower of the hyacinth family “used in popular rites on Ascension Day” A Manichean glossary pairs Middle Persian ‘mwrd’d hrwd’d with Sogdian hrwwt mrwwt. The Slavonic version of the Book of Enoch names (33.11 B) Arioch and Marioch as guardians of the earth and the forms once doubted are now confirmed by the Aramaic version found at Qumrān.
The demonetization of the Iranian Aməša Spəntas in a foreign environment should not come as a surprise. The Qur’ān itself attests a similar case in Surah 27.39, where ʿEfrit “demon” is a transformation of the Avestan genius Āfriti surnamed the dahman “pious,” who manifests herself to the righteous when he utters benediction (Gray, Foundations, pp. 130-31; Jeffery, p. 215). There are of course several other parallel analogous examples in a wider context, such as Buddha becoming but “idol” in Persian (Bailey, p. 103).
Side by side with the purely Islamic versions, there also developed a Muslim-Persian rendering, first fully recorded in the so-called Ṭabari’s Tafsir in Persian, compiled for the Sāmānid king Manṣur b. Nuḥ in 362/963 (Tarjoma-ye tafsir-e Ṭabari I, pp. 96-97), which draws on material from both Ṭabari’s Arabic Commentary on the Koran and his Annals. Other renderings in the early Persian tafsirs tend to add an interesting detail or a new twist to the tale.
The Persian variant has not yet received sufficient attention. Indeed, little research has been done on the sources, narrative techniques, and the range of details found in the early Persian tafsirs (see EXEGESIS iii. In Persian), including, for example, Tāj al-tarājem fi tafsir al-Qorʾān le’l-aʿājem of Abu’l-Moẓaffar Šāhfur Es-frāyeni, the Tafsir-e Surābādi of Abu Bakr ʿAtiq Nišāburi Surābādi, Kašf al-asrār wa ʿoddat al abrār of Abu’l-Fażl Rašid-al-Din Meybodi, and Rawż al-jenān of Abu’l-Fotuḥ Rāzi (fl. first half of the 6/12th cent.). Many of the commentaries on this Koranic passage expound on the nature of magic of both licit and illicit categories, and some contain interesting additional details.
The Islamic Persian version of the myth gives the same story but with a divergent outcome: after lusting for the woman and becoming intoxicated with wine and committing murder, Hārut and Mārut were imprisoned inside a well in Mount Damāvand (see DAMĀVAND ii). There they remain suspended by the feet, with tongues stick-ing out because of thirst “although the distance between their mouth and the water amounts only to the thickness of a sword blade.
They shall remain so till the end of the world, and whoever desires to learn sorcery goes there and learns magic from them” (Tarjoma-ye tafsir-e Ṭabari, I, pp. 96-97). Damāvand was a favorite haunt of demons or Dīvs (q.v.), and one recalls that a tradition claimed that demonic Zaḥḥāk was taken there by Frēdun (q.v.) and imprisoned in a well where he would remain until the end of the world. Already the caliph ʿOṯmān exiled to Damāvand an Arab who was accused of sorcery (the Arabic text has the Persian word nirang for sorcery), “because that is a land where sorcery is in vogue.”
Thus, the link between Damāvand and the fallen angels was natural in Iranian lore. Indeed, by Ṭabari’s time, a locality in the Damāvand area had come to be called Bā-bel Donbāwand, “the Babylon of Damāvand,” and Suddi located the tormenting place of Hārut and Mārut in “Bā-bel Donbāwand” (Schwarz, loc. cit., with references). Ḥamd-Allāh Mostawfi, who has given a long account of the fallen angel’s imprisonment in Babylon, also says (Nozhat al-qolub, ed. Le Strange, p. 37) that Hārut and Mārut are kept in chain in Damāvand.
The torment of Hārut and Mārut in the Iranized version of the story is an embellishment derived from classical antiquity. It recalls the myth of Tantalus, one of the four legendary figures often associated together (the others being Ixion, Sisyphus, and Tityus) that underwent punishment for various offences.
The “tantalization” of Hārut and Mārut gained wide and lasting currency throughout the Muslim world (Bamberger, pp. 115 ff.). Persian dictionaries define the names as famed sorcerers and as synonyms of sorcery.
In the prelude to the story of Bēžan (q.v.) and Manēža, Ferdowsi tells us how in a dark night his beloved fetched him a lamp and prepared a feast of wine, quinces, oranges, and pomegranates and then played the harp so wondrously that the overjoyed poet thought: “you would have said it is Hārut who performs magic (nirang)” (Šāh-nāma, ed. Moscow, V, p. 7; ed. Khaleghi, III, p. 305, n. 2). The reference is of course particularly apt in this context, as Bēžan was also later imprisoned in a well. Illustrations of Bēžan imprisoned in a well in the hostile land of Turān, and that of Hārut and Mārut hanging upside down in a well in Babylon, formed part of the pictorial cycle of illustrated manuscripts of the Šāh-nāma, in the case of the former, and that of the QesÂsÂasÂ al-anbiyā and ʿAjāʾeb al-maḵluqāt genre in the case of the two fallen angels.
Other Persian poets, most notably NāsÂer-e Ḵosrow, Neẓāmi, and Jalāl-al-Din Rumi, make several allusions to the story in their poetry. In the case of Rumi, he characteristically finds a mystical significance behind the story and in one passage he explains “that the intellect and spirit are imprisoned in clay, like Hārut and Mārut in the pit of Babylon” The Mathnawi of Jalālu’ddin Rumi.
Two later developments of the story of the two angels are worthy of note. The 14th-century Armenian John VI Cantacouzenus cited in an anti-Muslim treatise the legend of Arōt and Marōt, whom God sent to earth “in order to rule well and justly”. Hārut and Mā-rut also make an appearance in English literature from the end of the 18th century onwards as part of a romantic celebration of defiance and rebellion and the interest in the very notion of fallen angels. The Ivory Child (London, 1916, Chap. IV. Harut and Marut) alludes to the story in his account of the African Magicians, Harut and Marut, who are announced by the butler as “Mr. Hare-root and Mr. Mare-root” and proceed to impress the entire English household with their skill in magic. (end).
The tendency is to perceive polytheistic deities as debased objects of idol worship are mere projections of human personality of those men who were the myth makers to change the entire earth from matriarchal to patriarchal. Even Yahweh was a tribal patron form of a more ancient feminine moon deity. Although now without his divine consort of the feminine, there is no sacred garden of immortality and all the golden apples have been destroyed, consumed and hidden from woman.
Everything has a little darkness and light in it, from individuals to large religious corporations. It is up to you to be discerning in such things of spirituality, magic, mysticism, healing and so forth. As long as you are willing and can learn to see your own shadow along side your spiritual journey, you will stay in balance. Without that today, you will be knocked down because the patriarch is over and the moon cultures have now begun to rise.
Those who are powerful in the world, now must face their ancient karma. Those who have misused magic in their past lives, will have to face the repercussions of doing magic without enlightenment. Because in real terms, you would never do magic until after your second saturn return at sixty, because that is when your enlightenment is bestowed. A master waits five more minutes and this case a master waits forty years.
Babylonian and Mesopotamian Magic
The Chaldean Astrologers of early Babylonia was a moon-cult and the name Chaldean actually means ‘moon-worshipers’. In the bible Ur is referred to as Ur of the Chaldees. In the Babylonian cosmology Sin, Shamash and Ishtar formed the second trinity of deities. The first trinity of gods were also absorbed into the lunar cultures which were present 10,000 years before Mesopotamia.
But they wrote it down as if they founded magic and moon cultures but Mesopotamian didn’t, the Grandmothers of the Matriarch did. Because the moon rules cycle, the moon was a supreme role connecting principle between nature and human, and between the goddess and woman. All that the first patriarch did of Mesopotamia did was to change the Goddess into God deities and link men with them and slowly pushed out women.
The moon is during the period is visibility
in the first 5 days, from the 6th to 10th
the ruler was the god Ea from the 11th – 15th
day the god En-Lil”.
This trinity was also adopted by the Assyrians and the Hurrians alongside their patron deities. The Sumerian form of the Genealogy of the Deities. Sin (Nannar) as father of both the Sun (Utu or Shamash) and of Inanna (Ishtar) the Queen of Heaven or Great Goddess. The sun was generally a subservient deity, despite being officially recognized during the time of Hammurabi, being identified with, the hot, burning, sterile season. This astral scheme extended to the seven “planets” of the lunar week, and the twelve signs of the zodiac, the ‘girdle of Ishtar’, destroying the 13 moons of the matriarch.
It is from this heritage that astronomy and astrology for which the Chaldeans became renowned and developed. The name Sin is the Semitic form of Sumerian Enzu meaning lords of knowledge. The Mesopotamians ascribed very great importance to him because they had to replace all grandmother leaders with men and kings.
It was he who governed the passing of the months through his waxing and waning and all things lunar from that point on earth until the 1970s when woman began to reclaim her moon rites fully. But in the beginning of the patriarch, to take over the moon, was the unvarying lunar cycle gave Sin a special connection with order and wisdom and with immortality once woman’s role in creation of children and those who took care of the death rites.
The symbol of regeneration and rebirth of woman was also destroyed, the eight 8 number was destroyed and replaced by the all my relation number seven. The number seven is lunar in origin and is applied to the seven days of creation, the seven levels of hell and the seven great planets, Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
The Babylonian lunar calendar was said to be invented by Nabu-Rimmani. Nabu (like Mercury and Hermes) is the god of writing, who bears the tablets of the gods. Rimmon the pomegranate is a symbol of the enclosed fruit of the Yoni, thus also representing phallic male fertility.
Nabu also took over grandmother’s sacred serpent (healing) and thus ancient Mesopotamian society granted him the title of the wise serpent, soothsayer and prophet. As women reclaim their ancient titles back now and put them into action the world is starting to wobble.
Nabu closely personified Thoth, the Mercury and Hermes of Egypt. These are all the trickster gods. Yerah – The Moon God of Canaan, the Temple of the Moon God Hazor Palestine (Gray) The Moon, the Luminary of Heaven sends To Hrhb, the Summer’s King; Give Nikkal; the Moon will pay the brideprice-, Let the Fruitful One (maiden) enter his house, and I will give her brideprice to her father. This was the first time women were bought and sold by the early kingdoms of Mesopotamia, the first Patriarch.
Ignorant Historians and Archaeologists try to make this a love story but its not, its just a poetic way to have written women into slaver and subjugation. Sorry to spoil your party of romance, but its true, the world’s foundation today was built on the backs of slaves called woman or as Yoko Ono so truthfully called it in the 60s: “Woman, Nigger of the Whole World”.
Ningal, who in Akkadian texts is refers to as “the Mother of the Great Gods” was also Moon Goddess. Her temple was second in importance only to the of Sin. Her temple was likewise rebuilt many times. Ishme-Dagan’s daughter Enannatum, high priestess of Nannar rebuilte the entire mud brick temple of burned brick. The Great Goddess Ningal laments the destruction of Ur in her lament:
I mourned the day of the great Storm,
fated for me my burden predestined,
for me as a goddess the cause of my tears,
I could not flee the cruel violence of that day.
Its fury was greater than all the joys of my life.
The land of Ur is filled with sorrow.
Should I scream for the life of my children, or
cry out for its release? When the storm subsided,
the city lay in ruins and The Temple of Nannar
lay in ruins. Where crowds once celebrated festivals
bodies lay in every street.
The Semitic Babylonians inherited this custom as well as most of their superstitions from the Sumerians who were the fathers of all superstition and magic in the ancient world and whose influence is still felt among the nations Slavic Russia which spread to all of the Slavic Countries.
All old Babylonian oil and honey divination texts were translated into Hebrew so a lot of the original meanings were changed. You can always change ceremonies and divination according to your own sacred needs to purify to be closer to the light. What comes with that of course, is your own karma and darkness (impatience, anger, frustration, ego, judgments etc,) which come from the deeper and dark past life corruptions of self.
If you go too far into the mysteries and the abyss you will see your own shadow and pain. So always take things slow and make sure your intentions with any magic is to expose your own shadow in order to heal it. If you are a healer, then you must have enough of your own shadow and your own sobriety (no wine, no pot, no shamanic plants, etc) to ever help anyone with pure intentions.
Babylon Oil Magic by Samuel Daiches, Ph.D.
Lecturer in Biblical Exegeses and Talmudics, 1913 in London:
In Babylonian origin parallels, the magical power of honey in Babylonian origin. Honey and Oil was regarded in antiquity as a mystic element. It was used for consecration and dedication. When Jacob wanted to hallow the stone at Bethel, he poured Oil on it. When Moses dedicated Aaron to the service of God he poured oil on his head and anointed
The Tabernacle and all that was in it was consecrated by being anointed with honey or oil. At the cleansing of the sick, too, oil was used . Four verses deal with the use of the oil for that purpose. Every action mentioned in those verses no doubt had
its significance. Samuel, when selecting Saul for kingship, pours honey or oil on his head.
In Assyria, memorial stones and tablets were anointed with honey or oil. So Tiglath-Pileser I (end of twelfth century bce) says :
nam ‘ i pl lid Saméi fl Ramman ae bi ia §amné ap-ézi-u§,
(the memorial stones of my ancestor I have anointed with oil.)
In Egypt and Greece also honey was used for dedication. Honey or oil also played a big role in magic. We know this from Asse-Babylonian magical texts. In the Ritual tafeln, Oil is mentioned several times and in Old Babylonian texts, we find divination by means of honey or oil. What importance there was ascribed to Babylonian magic can also be seen from the following passage occurring in one of the incantations…
Maklfi texts published by Tallqvist:
‘Incantation. Bright Oil, pure oil, shining oil,
the purifying oil of the gods, oil which softens
the sinews. With the oil of the incantation of Ea,
with the Oil of the incantation of Marduk
I have made thee drip; with the oil of softening
which Ea has given for soothing. I have anointed
thee Oil of life, I have put on thee.
The Oil is called the oil of the Incantation of Ea and Marduk the two great Babylonian gods of magic and divination. This was the first time that the Soulless Humans (aliens to sleeping people) were let into society. Found among the Jews in the time of the Talmud and in later times all the magic parallels are striking over the middle east, not only with regard to the use of the honey or oil, but also with regard to the ceremonies and formulas connected with it. It will be seen that the Babylonian and Jewish documents supplement an d throw light on each other.
The passages referring to honey or oil in magic in the Talmud are very few and fragmentary. It will be seen how they become clear and intelligible with the help of the Babylonian texts as well as the later Jewish documents. I will deal first with the Talmudic passages and then with the later Jewish texts. These later texts I divide into two groups.
One group consisting of those texts in which honey is used in course of the divination ceremony as a part of the ceremony so that the Spirits may appear in the thumb-nail or in the hand or in the vessel and may be seen through the oil.
Second group consisting of texts in which the whole divination is made with oil, or through the reflection or non-reflection in the oil. Text does not strictly belong to this group. But in this text, too, the use of oil is important.
We find that honey or oil also played a big role in Egyptian magic also. The Demotic Magical Papyrus of London and Leyden, published by Griffith and Thompson, are full of honey or oil divination , and contain many striking parallels to Babylonian magical texts as well as to the Jewish texts published here.
1 There can be no doubt that this form of magic came to the Egyptians from the land of the Euphrates. The following passage from the papyrus mentioned will help to show clearly the Babylonian origin of Egyptian honey or oil magic :
The incantation to mother earth that you say to the honey or oil is on the sting: ‘Isis sat reciting to the honey Abartat and lamenting the true oil saying…
Thou being praised, I will praise thee, O Honey,
I will praise thee, thou being praised
by the Agathodaemon; thou being applauded
by me myself, I will praise thee for ever,
— O herb-oil (or herb-honey), the true Oil.
— O sweat of the Agathodaemon amulet of Geb.
It is Isis who makes invocation to the honey / oil.
These lines read as if they were formed on the passage from Maklu, quoted above and show unmistakably the Babylonian origin of Egyptian oil magic. In Europe, too, Oil has been known as a means of magical manipulations; The Ancient Mariner; The water, like a witch’s Oils, burnt green, and blue and White.
The influence of the culture of the land of the two rivers upon the development of mankind has been very great, but not the least great has it been in the domain
of magic. The more one examines the ancient literature the more one sees how the various forms of Sumeria-Babylonian superstition spread to the whole of the ancient civilized world and how many of these superstition s have survived up to the present day
in East an d West.
In Talmud Babli, Sanhedrin the following Baraitha is quoted ‘One is allowed to ask of the princes of oil and the princesses of honey and eggs. One whispers a charm over oil in the vessel and one does not whisper a charm over oil in the hand; therefore one anoints (oneself) with the oil in the hand and one does not anoint (oneself) with the oil in the vessel.
It is clear that we have in this Baraitha the use of honey in magic . In the first case (now we) honey is used for divination purposes. In the second case the oil is used for whispering a charm, a want or desire for magical healing.
How the honey or oil was used by the diviner was probably a ritual by priestess women because the Baraitha does not state. Neither is it clear what ‘fiw means. Rashi explains that it refers to magical work with honey or oil and that raw fir tree limbs). Rashi, can be also seen that the real meaning of the Baraitha was by no means clear to those who attempted to explain it which were probably sacred women. We will see later how the late Jewish documents changed everything to excude women from their own earlier magic from the matriarchal eras, not the patriarchal eras. Babylonian Ritual Tablets yield for the understanding of this passage opens with the following lines:
Prince and Princesses of the
Judgment of Hadad,
I bring to you, I dedicate
to you pure honey or oil
the child of Anu oil.
In my supplication, my lifting
up of the hands, in everything I do
the inquiry I dedicate, in her right
and her left, be correctness.
Cypress, fine flour she shall pour out,
honey or oil on the libation she shall put
an offering she shall pour out,
honey or oil poured on the water of the vessel
she shall put of Samas and Hadad, the great gods,
she shall inquire. When the omen and
the honey or oil are faultless, the great gods
come near and.
To inquire of the princes (the gods, the demons)
through using honey or oil, what the future
will bring or to ask them to fulfill a certain wish
That the now no) often lied (rnrnnw even those who believed in those superstitious acts will have known, as the ceremonies connected with those acts were so numerous and had to be most scrupulously and faithfully performed, and the least error brought about failure. For this reason the diviner prayed that he might be saved from a mistake.
127 eggs were used for the purpose of divination. We see from this that a magical influence similar to that of honey or oil was ascribed to the egg, and that the egg was used for various magical purposes and this was directly brought from the Jews who migrated to Russia who the Jews probably originally got this egg Magic from the Persian women, who also have a connection to the Slavic people and why egg magic was so welcomed. In Assyria and Babylonia, of eggs which were concealed under incantation-bowls were for fertility and creative purposes.
Babylon Honey or Oil Magic
The second case of the Baraitha (i‘wms) speaks of the use of honey or oil for magical healing. The Baraitha says that the whispering of the charms is done over honey or oil in a vessel. The same thing we find in the Babylonian Ritual Tablets.
The diviner shall put (in its proper).
this makaltu used for honey or oil (and water);
of Zimmern where the makaltu is mentioned and
where the barn is called makin makalti elli—te,
she who puts down the sacred (divining) vessel.
In the Catholic traditions they used water and wine, which was later changed to wine and blood, showing the influences of the male or patriarchal Dionysus Pagan Cults. The Empress (Elisabeth o f Austria) was very superstitious, and occasionally, when she had exhausted the gossip of Vienna, she would put the white of an egg into a glass of water, and read omens in the shapes which it took. A remarkable reminiscence of Sumeria-Babylonian magical superstition.
Demon (astral bodies) speak into the Ears of Humans
One of the Tibetan Bardo practices which I have done since the 90s is the Dreaming practice to sleep on your left side every night. This is so no whispers or speaking from any such soulless one or false gods such as Ashtar, Saint Germain, or any New Age God (from their list) can speak to you. The Akkadian who first spoke to me in the 90s and I turned away, I turned 100 away after that. Always sticking with my path of self healing.
Also regular people who are astral travelers and have demons loose from demonic plants such as pot and ayahuasca can also speak to you from their “mental astral body”. If that happens, imagine you punch them in the left area of their “rib cage” on the spleen, to wake them up from their bed at night and their demon must then stop. There are many things I know so make sure to read over all my articles if you have a particular problem.
Plant users demon astral bodies of living people are generally the one’s who are talking to you. Or if you go to spiritual circles, or pow wow and there are some top powerful men who have demons, they will also come and visit you if you go to their circles enough. My only advice is: Don’t be so fucking naive in your spiritual journey.
Ancient Babylon Magic Healing Divination for healing the Ears…
One who feels pain in the ear puts oil on the head and whispers a charm. But do not put honey into the hand or into a vessel while healing the ear. Ask a healer, shaman or priest or priestess to do it for you so its in a sacred ceremony. Honey divination, as well as in other kinds of magic, was known to Babylonian parallels making it equally clear that the use of honey or oil in magic was of Babylonian origin and most likely Persia. (Iran and Iraq) who both practice honey or oil magic as long back as 3000 bce.
What concerns us now, however, is that the Jews in the time of the Talmud made the same use of Oil for magical purposes and performed the same ceremonies as the Babylonians and a lot of them were evil, dark and for power and control. That is why one should always be very careful using ancient texts.
NAIL – The nail they speak of here is the Right Thumb (nail). Left hand is receptive, feminine and the right hand is our masculine side, will and energy forth into the world. The thumb in Palmistry is a petite body part that takes up massive space in the cerebral cortex of our brains. Our minds grow because our thumbs counter our four fingers. It is believed that Thumbs stand for our most precious human resources: strength of will, ability to judge and capability to love.
Similar to the four fingers, a thumb also has two joints that form three portions identified as phalanges. The foremost or top phalanx of the thumb symbolizes determination. The second or mid-portion symbolizes reasoning ability. If the logic phalanx is shorter than the determination phalanx, the person acts without thinking. If logic is longer, they’re good at planning but poor at executing. The third or last part of the thumb symbolizes our aptitude for love and our capability to maintain relationships.
The Princes of the Thumb
A person makes a circle in the earth with a knife, the handle of which is black, and prepare the finger nail of the right thumb until it becomes thin, and take four smooth stones and put (them) in the four rows of the circle, and put the mentioned knife in the middle of the circle and place the person in it, before the pillar of the sun or moon and anoint the finger nail and the forehead with oil, and the person shall look well at her or his nail, and thou shalt whisper into his ear this spell:
‘True goddess of the earth the right hand of the right hand of the god is exalted I adjure you, princes of the right thumb’s finger nail, for the sake of (her name) of the Sea and for the sake of the three lights shall protect this fingernail, the Goddess shall also come with God. Make a personal sacrifice, like being humble or kind, and digest that, and they shall bring three glass cups, and that the Goddess shall come in white.
Note: Ancient Jews in Babylon did a lot of magic with young boys, in a way it was the curse of the Patriarch to bind them to it, so never do magic with children, only mature adults for that has very bad repercussions in karma in future lifetimes and that time is now, today on earth. I have changed all the magic here to make it without karma.
The Princes of the Flask
In a prescription similar to this, the same spirits are invoked, evidently one of the mystical names referred to in the preceding note the name is written three times. And the person will see a goddess riding on a horse or mule in their dreams, and shall say unto her three times : Blessed be she that comes in the name of the Goddess and he or she shall say unto the Goddess, unto her it pleases. Make a personal sacrifice to let go of something one takes pride in or a bad behavior or an emotional issue that one needs to heal. I adjure you in the name of (______ Goddess) that you tell me the truth, and whisper three times into the ear of the person, so you will know what you desire.
The Dream Book, Iškar Zaqīqu (“core text of the god Zaqīqu”), is an eleven tablet compendium of oneiromancy written in Akkadian. Tablets two to nine form the manual of deductive divination, while tablets one, ten and eleven provide rituals to alleviate bad dreams.
Zaqīqu, which means “Spirit” or “Ghost Soul,” is the name of the dream deity from four thousand years ago. The text Dream interpretations first appear in texts from Mari, whether solicited by the incubation ritual or spontaneous.
Iškar Zaqīqu is one of the few texts to have survived in fairly complete form from the library of Ashurbanipal, and is believed to have been copied from an old Babylonian original. Visions from dreams came in three types:
1. Messages from someone;
2. Reflections of the dreamer’s state of health;
3. Prophetic dreams (of the past or future).
The šā’ilu “questioner” or dream diviner could be a professional drawn from any of the disciplines of Mesopotamia:
The Ašipu, “the exorcist”
the Bārû, “the diviner”
the Tupšarru, “the astrologer”
the Muhhûm, “the ecstatic,”
and if they are all of the above
they fall under the Ragintu “prophetess”
(or raggimu “prophet”)
Records of the library at Nineveh show inclusion of tablets from the collections of a diviner and also of an exorcist from Nippur. The similarity with the traditions of Egyptian New Kingdom dream hermeneutic oracles suggest a shared origin.
The omens take the form of – one sentence, highly formalized units – with a protasis in which the portentous event is described, and an apodosis in which the meaning or consequence is given. They make extensive use of puns to explain the symbolism of the dream, for example:
“If a person dreams they is eating a raven (arbu); they will have an income (irbu) . Sounds like the origins of superstitions doesn’t it.
“If a person dreams they are eating human flesh (šēru); then they will have great riches (šarû).” Sounds like power hungry dreaming projections doesn’t it.
“If (someone) has given one a miḫru-wood; theyt shall have no rival (māḫiru).” The only nature content here in this text.
The Princes of the Hand
In order that they should come into the hand, an d they are called
the princes of the hand and take a person who has not seen pollution and corruption of men yet, and anoint their right hand with (Olive) Oil and with black earth, facing towards the east, and whisper into his right ear three times these names : HEAL, LOVE, BALANCE read them in one breath, and afterwards you shall also say them three times behind their neck and then also three times to the left ear. Ask what the person sees. (Again, never do this to children, only adults who give permission because they are sick).
To Catch and Heal the Dark Ones
To catch a thief, a dark magician, dark sorcerer or
dark witch and begin a healing purifying fire process
in waking life or in dreaming:
The more clear you are and all the information you have before doing this, will cause you no harm or karma. If you are impatient and do not have all the fact, then you attain karma and this will come to haunt you twenty or thirty years later. Never fuck with magic is my motto and it should only be done to heal and never for power.
Take a “brick” and write on it the name of the thief, dark witch, dark sorcerer, dark magician (or their demon), and write the name of their father (or the person the demon belongs to if known). And recite the words three times: “The Hidden one Shall be Exposed”
Put the brick into a fire, and when it becomes white hot say: The Thief (dark magician, sorcerer or witch) has been burnt, so shall you , who are appointed to make hot the heart of every robber, dark sorcerer, dark magician, dark witch and thief, make hot, burn and purify their heart clean (for the goodness of all concerned).
They shall not give any rest and the burning of your fire shall go into him and he will do fasting, meditation and purification and on the forth day of the week, his or her name will be returned their own karma.
To see if one is Spelled or Bewitched
To know whether a man or woman is bewitched take a dish full of Oil, and the man or woman shall look into it. If they are bewitched they will not see their face in it; and if they are not bewitched they will see their faces.
To drive out a demon from a person. He shall say ‘ Why , 0 Lord , stand so far away from I’. Take a new pot filled with drawn water, and put into it a little Olive Oil, and say it nine times , and she or he shall wash in it. His or her’s whole body, and he shall concentrate in his or her’s mind, souls, animism souls, emotions and body. In the name that comes out of it she or he shall say : May it be your will that you shall remove every illness, sickness and demonic sickness and every demon from (____________) from now and forever.
A Diviners Tools
Those who are particular about the vessel (by means of which he divines), that she or he cannot do anything without the vessel – that is required, for instance, the “princes of the thumb” for which a knife, with a black handle is required, or the “princes of the cup that they require a cup or glass, they must be used all the time for certain healing divination and also cleaned after each use.
The attribution of magical powers or even the appearance of spirits are generally warned to keep all spirits out of ones circle. Do not trust such darkness as spirits who are really souls having out of body experiences, so make sure the circle boundary is strong. Don’t make the mistakes that ancient people made and got us all in the mess we are in today.
Keep your rituals very sacred and never do harm of anyone.
Purity Stone Ritual
Like Alabaster may my light shine,
may I never have affliction,
Like lapis-lazuli may my life be precious
may mercy prevail upon me.
Like gold may my god and my goddess
(my higher female and higher male self, no karma)
be at peace with me. In the mouth of all people
may I be blessed. Like a seal may my evil deeds
of my past (and past lives) be burned off
through pain and torn away.
Thus see that to these four stones a certain magical power is ascribed. No doubt the four smooth stones in this text, stand in some connection with the four stones in the Babylonian incantation. Various kinds of stones are also mentioned, together with Honey and Oil. Stones were thus used in Magic in Babylonia at a very early period before the pillar of the sun (cult).
The pillar of the morning-dawn which occurs in the Mishna instead occurs five times — The Dawn of the Morning (Goddess who are Night Moon Goddesses). Thus certainly means these rituals are before the sun rises. From this we see that the ceremony had
to be performed early in the morning before sunrise. Exactly as in the Babylonian divination. In Rit. we read several times that the various offerings, which were a part of the divination ceremony, had to be offered and the various other preparations had to be made before the rise of the sun, The diviner has to wash him or herself at the dawn before the sun rises:
Servant am I, I shall offer an offering
in the morning dawn, and shall take the
cedar-wood and stand before the light.
Of the sea and for the sake of the three
lights that are on the earth. (1. our
inner light, 2 the light of the moon,
and the light of the stars).
Anoint his or her thumbnail and his forehead with pure olive-oil and thou shalt
whisper into his ear this spell magical prayers from the Babylonians . This would have
clearly been against their monotheism, and they substituted their own psalms and hymns. They could adopt the obscure magical ceremonies and formulate, of the real
(religious) meaning of which they were not quite conscious. But they could not worship Samas and Marduk because they were too dark and evil.
And lastly: © Eugenie McQueen 2017 says: The word doctor in the Sumerian language is translated by meaning as “water-aware.” Perhaps because the ancient Sumerians used many recipes that were based on tinctures and decoctions. Also used water was used to dissolve spells and conspiracies.
Such a “healing” composition drank and would bring some healing. Actually the same method existed in Egypt as well. And some healers use it to this day. The mention of the doctor Ur-Lugal-edin, I also found in the text about the life of Ur-Ningirsu. Perhaps it was the ruler of Nin-gir-su, the son of the greatest ruler of the Sumerians Gudea (2142-2122 bce).
Gudea, who was called the “good shepherd”, that he ruled at the end of the third millennium and was proud that “with him no one was punished with a sword or beaten with belts”. This was also incorporated into Jesus’s teachings two thousand years later.
The energy of Ki, Orion, people of creation in an attempt to interpret cuneiform writing as a message from a higher power. But we are a doctor with you, now we know. And I have only one question: On the seal was are star symbols – Diĝir , which denoted both the sky and the deity and are read as An. In Akkadian, this symbol means not only -an, but also il, ilum.
Remember, I recently mentioned the divine names of Elah, Al, Allah, and angels, whose names end in -el in the article about the Temple of Asherah and the ancient land of Canaan . According to Kathy Jones (researcher and founder of the cult of the goddesses of Avalon in Great Britain), An was the name of the original goddess. The following unfolding goddess names such as Anat, Inanna, Anahit, Atana – they all have the same source.
