Subjective Experiences of the Book of Enoch
I would like to share one of my experiences meditating with the Book of Enoch.
I experienced this when I was exploring the Twenty-second Aethyr (heavenly realm) during one of my Enochian Mediations. As I was meditating, I entered a very deep state and I felt the presence of God and the holiness of this Aethyr and his angels very strongly.
I saw all of the forty-nine tables (not just the forty-eight) floating in space and it appeared that each leaf was separated from the next one by about an inch. Then the hand of God appeared and his finger brushed or touched the First Leaf and it moved toward the second, and the second brushed the third, and so on and so forth. This was similar to dominos falling in slow motion. As each leaf hit the next one, something like letters--or possibly notes--came out from the leaves. They were numerous and floated majestically in the air.
A good way to visualize this is if you had forty-nine pages of a very dusty book. If you fanned the book, dust would fly into the air. In this case it wasn’t dust that came out, but letters. They moved and floated in a beautiful harmony, almost like a symphony. I knew this symbolized the creation of the universe by God. His finger brushing the First Leaf was like the om point or the big bang, which began everything. His finger was the Word of God. God only touched the First Leaf, and as his hand moved or fanned over the rest of the leaves, the wind that he produced from the hand motion moved the rest of them in a domino effect.
This wind represents “The wind of God” mentioned in Genesis chapter 1. The wind was hovering over the deep before creation began. Some people translate the Hebrew word for wind (ru’ach) as Holy Spirit. So if this wind was the Holy Spirit of God, it was now taking over to finish the process of creating the universe. In my vision, all three persons of the Godhead were present: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Notice that God only touched the First Leaf and no others. This is why the First Leaf was so holy. This vision is consistent not only with Christianity in that the three aspects of God were present in the creation but also Egyptian mythology. The Egyptian god Thoth was considered the tongue of God in which the will of God was translated into speech. Thoth has also been compared to the Logos or the Mind of God. In addition, he was the Egyptian god of magic and writing. He was considered to be the scribe of the gods and was credited with inventing the alphabet.
The letters coming out of the pages would be consistent with a cosmology where Thoth ruled as a god. He was the god who originated all things; the Egyptians believed that he was responsible for making all of the calculations for the establishment of the universe, including the stars, the planets, and the Earth--and everything they contained. It’s very interesting that his female counterpart, Maat, controlled the movement of all things in the universe and was the force that maintained creation, in other words, the wind.
In Crowley’s vision of the Twenty-second Aethyr, an angel plays a pipe and, according to him, the music is wonderful. The angel stops playing and moves his fingers in the air, which leaves a trail of fire of many colors. There is some similarity between this and my vision of God moving his finger in the air and fanning the forty-nine tables.
Crowley also seemed to see visions of the creation and dissolution of the universe. In my vision, I only beheld the creation. (Keep in mind I didn’t read Crowley’s description before I explored the Twenty-second Aethyr.) I was very grateful to the angels for revealing the vision of the Twenty-second Aethyr to me. It was one of the most sublime revelations I have ever received.
