Faelmaran It contains additional Kabbalistic recommendations for specific purposes. The desire of man to discern the hidden shhimmush, or to obtain shimmush tehillim mastery over nature in hours of great anxiety, by some superstitious resort to superhuman forces, is never altogether extinct in the multitude. Still quite good, shimmush tehillim for tshillim novice who may not know that biblical psalms have a practical use. What should be done in the first case?

Levine First Published: Last Modified: Given the immese power and lifeforce attributed to the Torah and the Hebrew alphabet, it is no suprise that psalms and other Biblical passages were widely used in practical Kabbalah to protect people from harm, defend against demons, perform exorcisms, and, occasionally, for personal gain or to attack an enemy.
Psalms Psalms in particular were popular in practical Kabbalah, and were used to ward off evil, drive away demons, and in amulets used in protection and healing.
This section contains an overview of uses; for additional information and examples, see the sections on demonology and amulets. Psalms Widely regarded as the "Anti-Demonic Psalm", it was often recited at night and before sleeping. Said with other Biblical selections 72 times, it was supposed to deliver one from prison. Psalms This verse was used in the expulsion of demons from a place.
Personally I find Psalms particularly graceful in its hopeful appeal for mercy. Psalms Recited multiple times in a procedure to expel a demon from a person. Psalms and These two Psalms were used, particularly on amulets, to ward off Lilith, Queen of Demons. Psalms eventually became the favored choice. Psalms 3: Another anti-demonic Psalm, though not as popular as Psalms A book called Shimmush Tehillim "On the Use of Psalms" , was very popular and widely translated, even in Christian circles, though it was banned by the Catholic Church.
Shema Yisroel, Adonai Elohainu, Adonai ekhad. The Shema is an affirmation of faith, and it was often recited by martyrs who chose death over revocation of Judaism or conversion. It does appear on some amulets, and it is also used with other Biblical passages in the mezuzah, an object which has been viewed as one with protective power. The mezuzah lit. Following these are Deut. The word Sheddai, a Name of God meaning "Almighty", is written on the reverse of the parchment.
At times the mezuzah was believed to protect the home. In the medeival period, in some countries, extra verses or charms were added for further protection, and they were believed to be powerful devices; I have read one account, quoted in two sources, of a bishop asking for one for his home!
Mezuzot should be checked periodically to make sure the parchment is intact and in order; in centuries past this was very important, especially if one wished to keep evil out of their home. Today, some Jews wear a miniature mezuzah as a charm on a necklace, as an affirmation of faith. Some scholars consider the mezuzah an amulet or talisman, or at least feel that in certain eras it should be classified as such. To support this theory they relate examples of medieval mezuzot which contain extra materials, such as extra Names of God, angel names, and even magic symbols.
Others disagree, insisting it is simply the fulfilment of a commandment and an affirmation of faith, regardless of additional "enhancements" made by the superstitious. This blessing was originally to be said Aaron and his sons of the Israelites; it was later said by the Kohanim priests over the people. Today it has been worked into the liturgy. The speaker s of the blessing hold their hands up to the congregation in a particular fashion while reciting it.
The best way I can describe it is this: imagine holding both of your hands in the Vulcan "live long and prosper" position. Before anyone accuses me of being silly or disrespectful, you should know that this is where Leonard Nimoy got the idea in the first place! The Priestly Benediction was used in popular application not only for blessing, but for protection against the Evil Eye. One Name of God used in Practical Kabbalah is derived from it; for more information see the section on the Names of God.
I have in my possession a small "prayer token" made of bone, supposedly dating to the early s, which contains the first line of the Priestly Benediction around its circumference, with the Shema at its center. It was probably intended as a sort of good luck charm. Verses were believed to have power either by virtue of containing one or more Names of God, or because they applied to the situation at hand.
It was even said that a truly pure and righteous person could kill with combinations of verses and certain Names of God. One book on this topic was Sefer Gematriot, a book of numerology which evaluated and compared Biblical verses based on their numerical value see Names of God. It also contained a list of appropriate Biblical terms for use in wards, charms, curses, blessings, etc.
There are far too many uses for me to list here, so below is a short list of interesting and particularly useful examples. In many cases each word and the entire verse was to read forward and backward. To counteract magic, recite the following verses, which all begin and end in the Hebrew letter nun, in the following order: Lev. You may also recite Ex.
Exodus When meditated on properly, protects against magic, plagues, and demons, and can postpone a visit from the Angel of Death! For protection from sorcery: Numbers For general protection at night: Genesis Recite before bedtime and over infants for protection from demons: Numbers , Deuteronomy To have a prayer answered: Exodus , Exodus For love: Song of Songs To dispel a fever: Numbers ; Deuteronomy For success: Genesis ; Exodus For safety on a journey: Ex.

Lord, show me Thy ways, lead me in Thy truth, and teach me. The soul has inward senses, as sensum communem ; in which faith takes hold as fides and other senses Intellectus in the brain.
