Secrets & Virtues of the 150 Psalms.
« This is the true mysterious and divine cabal for the understanding of the 150 Psalms of the Royal Prophet, by the virtue of which he was delivered from so many great perils, obtained so many blessings from God, and finally attained to eternal glory. "Whoever shall say them, and put them into practice according to the way they are taught, making use of the virtue of the intelligences, and of the virtue of their seals or characters, with all the faith, devotion, reverence and humiliation due to so holy and divine thing, he may be sure that he will undoubtedly obtain many special graces from God, and may live contentedly in this world and in the next ». Complete English translation, based upon a manuscript dated from the middle of the 18th century.
Psalms are used in prayer, in rituals and in ceremonies or magical work. They can be used without any constraints of astrological, planetary or elemental considerations. The Psalms can be read, sung, but in Jewish, Protestant Christian and Catholic Christian folk traditions it is more common to recite them, from memory or from a book, or while performing other devotions, such as washing, performing a spiritual cleansing of a house or business, placing candles or night lights on an altar or perfuming a room/person with incense.
The magical practice of the Psalms considerably expanded during the Middle Ages (Usus Psalmorum). According to Kabbalah, each of the 150 Psalms has a specific magical virtue (and occasionally even several). The Tehillim (Psalms) of the Kabbalistic tradition provide us with an appropriate prayer for all situations of daily life. Thus, to obtain a grace from God, it is not enough to pronounce the indicated psalm. The practitioner will have to draw upon himself the Intelligence of the related Name. Each Psalm has a particular signature (Intelligence) associated with it, as well as its sigil. The Intelligences are astral powers that govern all things in the celestial and natural worlds and can also act as intercessors between humans and the divine. Intelligences are seen as entities that guide and inspire. In a way, intelligences can be compared to the angels and archons of Gnosticism.
