The Hebrew Alphabet and the Qabalistic Seals

The Rose Cross lamen of the Golden Dawn

This page will be dedicated to seal and sigil creation. To summon Qabalistic entities succesfully you will have to understand how to create your own sigils. There are ready made seals and sigils found in books, but it is a pleasure to understand the process of sigil creation.

I am myself fascinated with the rituals of Ceremonial Witchcraft, but the only thing I don’t like is the Egyptian pantheon in the teachings of Golden Dawn. Therefore I follow the Satanic ritual structure while summoning the Qabalistic entities. Maybe someday, I will restructure my rituals and perform them in Hebrew.

Below comes a Rose Cross lamen that is used by followers of Ceremonial Arts. It is therefore important to know the Hebrew alphabet and the sound of each Hebrew letter in order to spell the entitie’s name correctly in Hebrew, and then draw lines in this Rose Cross lamen.

Read from right to left: Yud Heh Vah Heh (the 4-fold name of God, that is, Tetragrammaton or Solomons pentacle) = 10 + 5 + 6 + 5 = 26

Additional letters if they occur at the end of the word complicate sigil creation, because one has to know Hebrew very well. I am learning the Hebrew alphabet and words for the purpose of performing my rituals in Hebrew.


5 additional letters in Hebrew

Exception to the rules (see the two photos here):

1. The letter with the value 500 is actually Dalleth that turns into Kaph, because it is found at the end of the word.

2. Final Mehm = value 600/ has another appearance if at the end of word

3. Final Nun = value 700/has another appearance if at the end of word

4. Final Peh = value 80/has another appearance if at the end of word

5. Final Tzah dee = 900/has another appearance if at the end of word

Totally = 5 letters that complicate the process of sigil creation, because they change their appearance if found at the end of the word.


Hebrew is read from right to left

Know the Hebrew name of the entitie. This is not easy for the student. This is what I feel. I wish I had a Rabbi who would teach me the secrets of practical Qabalah. For now I educate myself, by searching in online occult sources and also by following in the footsteps of famous Ceremonial magicians.

As an example I want to show you how one can create the seal of Phorlakh (used in money spells). We need to know the Hebrew name of this Angel Phorlakh (belongs to the Element of Earth/probably from the Sephira of Malkuth).

Hebrew is read from right to left: Peh-Vah-Resh-Lahmed-Aleph-Kaph (Daleth changes into Kaph with value 500/ end of the word!).

So you begin drawing straight lines to join the hebrew letters in the Rose Cross lamen. I will continue, because I will take pictures of my seals.


Creating the seal of Phorlakh

Step 1:

DSC02060

Write the name Phorlakh in Hebrew from right to left 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Note that the 6th letter Dalleth is at the end of the name. In this case Dalleth turns into Kaph with the value 500 (see exceptions above, point 1 ).

Step 2:

Draw the lines starting with Peh. At Peh make a small circle. This will mark the beginning of your seal drawing. Continue drawing through the letters in the following sequence: Vah-Resh-Lahmed-Aleph-Kaph.

Step 3:

Step 4:

Choose green or olive coloured paper. This is because Malkuth is divided into 4 Elemental spheres:

 

Air = yellow

Fire = Red

Water = black

Earth = green/olive colour

I had no green paper at home. Therefore I choose some “yellow mud” coloured paper to demonstrate my seal.

Ready. You may decorate the seal with Phorlakh written in Hebrew. When you perform your ritual its important to consecrate the seal with Air, Fire, Water and Earth on your altar. Stare at the seal and read the conjurations to Phorlakh. Have your mirror positioned outside your circle. If you see nothing, don’t get upset. Do a spell with the seal.

The purpose of summoning entities is also to obtain favours from them. Make talismans when the moon is waxing and full to draw things towards you. Make amulets when the moon is full and waning to repel things from you.
