An Original Abraxas Stone

An Original Abraxas Stone The power that I am about to offer you is an ancient power that comes from a group of people that have identified themselves as Gnostics. The Gnostic religion was founded on one major principal, that being spiritual knowledge This group aspired to know as much as they could about spiritual existence and the origins of existence. In fact, Gnostic comes from a Greek term Gnosis that literally means spiritual knowledge in the sense of mystical enlightenment. The way the Gnostics receive their information is through a series of magics that have been afforded to them by the Supreme God, Abraxas. Abraxas is a fat bellied character with either the head of a cock or a lion. He is sometimes crowned but not always. He carries a whip and has the tail of a dragon. Lastly, he is depicted not with legs, but rather serpents where his legs would be. The power that Abraxas holds reaches to the far ends of the universe. He is a holy god, and to some he is the first and the last; the beginning and the end. There are traces of Abraxas as early as the beginning of the Egyptian theology. In Egyptian mythology he was the grand protector, his name meaning hurt me not. He is the Persian God of the Sun. To the Syrians, he is Lao, which is the one holy apostolic god, which eventually was the aspect which gave way to the name Yahweh and Jehovah. This later led to a Hebrew influence in which Abraxas played the role of a mighty blessing and & host of angels. The most vivid account of Abraxas, though, comes from the Gnostics, whom I have introduced you to before. The Gnostic religion surfaced at the turn of the ages BC and AD. It materialized into a dominant belief in the First and Second Centuries AD. In the writings of Simon Magus, who was a seriously powerful magician and Gnostic teacher in those days, Abraxas was claimed as the supreme God being. The reasoning behind Abraxas as the Supreme Being is due to the mystery that is contained in his name. For beginners his name contains the seven most influential letters of the Greek Alphabet. When calculated correctly, these seven letters equal 365.  Therefore Abraxas is the number 365, has taken 365 minor deities to help him rule. The Gods bring forth 365 virtuous secrets one for each day of the year. With the virtues, the secrets of spirituality is given to mankind. Thus, we will receive spiritual enlightenment in the hopes of one day being as powerful as the gods that are giving us this enlightenment. lt also holds to be true that Abraxas has created the mind. The mind in turn created the word. From the word was issued divine providence, virtue, and wisdom. This made it possible for Abraxas to create principalities, powers, and angels. What ensued were infinite issues and processions of angels. This formed 365 Heavens, which again, is the existence of the almighty Abraxas. In order to gain favor with Abraxas and to summon his spirit to work on their behalf, people who practice Gnosticism made amulets and charms. The amulets and charms were then divined with special powers that only Abraxas could give to them. As I explained earlier, Abraxas comes full circle; he is both the first and the last to exist. This means he is the most powerful; from Abraxas we can learn the most. After all, wouldn’t a pile of books be useless without their bookends?? Think of Abraxas as a bookend and all the information you could ever want or need to know is contained somewhere in the middle.
