about

theomagica can be translated as 'divine magic' (from Latin theos = god and magica = noun use of feminine form of magicus). This page is the front-room of my magical workshop. It's the place where I store things that are done for now. Things that might be of use to others. This place is a living archive of what I studied, found or failed in over the last twenty years or so. 

All material here is for free and for your personal use; it is meant as a place to give back to our community. When I grew up the internet was just emerging. I would have killed (or almost) for genuine reports of practicing magicians who actually had done what they wrote about.

Our experiences are as unique as our DNA or fingerprints. As much as the same real-life experience can never be brought back, it also cannot be passed on to others. Yet, what we can do is point each other to less traveled spots on the map of human experience - from which our own explorations can take off.

With this in mind I am sharing the following essays. They cover a diverse array of theory and practice in our Western Mystery Tradition, all born from my and many other people's  first-hand experiences travelling it.

ebooks

 

Each of the following ebooks grew over many years. They are the direct output of my own magical path and address topics on which I found little reliable material available. None of them came to life through theoretic speculation. but instead through a lot of thorough research as well as my own applied practice. 

I offer them here for free as an expression of gratitude to the many people and spirits who have worked with me in bringing them to life in the first place. 

 
 

This essay shines a light on the concept of 'high magic' as it was socially constructed during the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. In particular it explores the role of the Catholic Church, the Medieval scribe, the rise of Universities as well as the impact of the letterpress.

This ebook examines the concept of the Holy Guardian Angel among various cultures. It begins with a short personal introduction and goes on to explore the demonology of the Chaldeans, Zoroastrians and Ancient Greeks - all with focus on personal spirit guardians.

 
 
 

This ebook offers a path to create union with our Holy Guardian Angel; one that is not based upon rituals but everyday experiences. It provides consolidated background and exercises - split into four phases - for how to lay out your own journey of contact.

This ebook is the first in-depth exploration of the famous 18th century occult order of the Asiatic Brethren in English language. It provides detailed background on its influences, an overview on its magical and kabbalistic teachings as well as the lives of its founding fathers.

The following tool were developed for my personal magical use. They are all based on relatively simple Excel calculations. I am sure there are more sophisticated ways of achieving better results. Having said that, for anybody without a strong affinity to maths they offer essential support in preparing their own rituals and magical work. 

Note: All files were saved on ‘MS Office for MAC’. If you cannot open the file, try ‘Open with’ and select Excel or change the ending to .xls. The password for protected areas in each file is 'FA300'.

This file basically is a compiled version of the Sepher Sephiroth with a Gematria frontend in Excel.

You can simply enter the word you want to match to a hebrew value (by a certain method of Tziruph) and then see the results appear on the right hand side .

This file allows you to input the checksum of the magic square you are looking for and Excel does the rest. 

Note: the right handle defines the basic numerical difference between two values in the same square. E.g. 1 would give you consecutive numbers.

 

Now, this is a fun topic! For this particular tool I chose to automate the calculation method based upon your natal horoscope according to Agrippa von Nettesheim (Book3, Chapter 26) and the related interpretation of Donald Tyson (2009, p.127-129).

Here is a little known method taken from Agrippa of Nettesheim. It allows you to assign a spirit name to any kind of object according to the planetary sphere intended to work with. Simply input the term or name whose planetary spirit names you want to look up and Excel does the rest.
