on seeking the protection of archangels

An excellent post on the topic of the B’shem Hashem prayer and its adaptation in the western occult tradition: ¬†Archangels Around Me, and Above Me…

This is one of the oldest known prayers. ¬†Variations of it were used also in Gnostic spells and rituals from Alexandria circa 200-300 CE (cf. Meyer, Smith: Ancient Christian Magic) – providing more proof for Raven’s Star’s thesis that the modern western occult tradition is deeply monotheistic.
