"I am Lilith, equal of Adam, who Taught Adam magic and love and lust. I am the Secret that when almost all is Known, the Unknown is the greatest stimulant. I am the Mistress of Substance, wise is my brother Nechesh!" Don Webb
We’ve just created the Facebook page for our webpage http://www.openmagick.com in which we’ll post news on articles both in english and spanish.
Recently we partially translated this website/community on magick to english -at least enough to make it browsable, along with a few articles-, and now we’re carefully translating what we consider some of the most relevant articles, so that they’re not limited to a spanish speaking public. Please like us in Facebook!
The lamia or succubi archetype is almost universal. Lilith is one of those characters who provides ample wings to our collective imagination. But we should make a difference among her roots, her formation and her consolidation, since here different cultures were involved. To begin with, we’ll analyze her sumerian origin according to local beliefs…
In those times people thought that the souls of men and women who died early were damned to harass the living until at last they were given relief through a suitable ritual. These beliefs are mentioned in assyrian spells.
The Mother of the Succubus and of Night, Lilith is a symbol of night and magickal power, Sorcery and Witchcraft. Her essence is that of Feminine strength and individual focus. The connection of Lilith with the cult of Vampirism has been noted by many, for through the Astral Plane this Goddess manifests on the Day Side as her fleshing ground.Just as with any pagan goddess or god, Lilith is not entirely of dark nature, being known as a protectress of mothers and children. The sacred bird of Lilith was the owl, one may seek to invoke, or identify with the goddess Lilith through the dream assumption of the owl form. Such experiments should prove insightful. Liliths name was suspected to have derived from the Sumerian Babylonian Belitilli. One rather interesting connection is that one of the 17 names of Lilith is actually KALI.
