From the records of the prestigious "Keeper of the Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities" (circa 1895) at the British Museum comes long forgotten knowledge of how to make use of dreams, tap the power of lucky and unlucky days, and utilize talismans and charms initially designed in the distant past and still useful and beneficial today. Every man, woman and child in ancient Egypt who could afford it wore either a charm or talisman, and for centuries their land was regarded as a nation of powerful magicians and sorcerers who guided their citizens in all matters mystical and spiritual. Hebrew, Greek and Roman writers referred to them as experts in the occult sciences and as possessors of arcane wisdom and knowledge which could, according to the given circumstances, be employed to do either good or harm to man. Saint Stephen boasts that the great Moses "was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians" and declared that he was "mighty in words and deeds." There are numerous moments in the life of this remarkable Biblical prophet that demonstrate that he was acquainted with many of the practices of Egyptian magic. It was even said that Moses possessed a "wonderful staff" with which he could work wonders, take control over man and beast and destroy enemies. Here are the actual spells and formulas utilized by the wizards of this ancient paradise along the Nile, as well as the designs of their most powerful amulets and talismans that have made Egyptian Magick the most commanding form of occultism ever performed at any time during the history of humankind.

Amulets and charms have been used since mankind evolved from its distant origins millions of years ago. They have been used to protect and to harm, and in both the practice and avoidance of witchcraft and sorcery. They are made of wood and stone, clay, metal, plants and dead animals. They are carved into crude shapes and in the most exquisite forms. They may also be composed entirely of words, which are believed to have great power and magical properties. Used by pagans, Christians, Jews and followers of every faith and tradition known across the world, they are considered direct links to the gods and local spirits. All are links to the supernatural. Regardless if they are called amulets, charms or talismans, these objects are credited with providing cures, causing evil, and bringing health and prosperity. This book, using ethnographic studies, ancient records and folklore, will explore the history and use of amulets and will show that they continue to be an important part of our modern culture.
