In a time in which the world could use a little magic, we have the Enochian language. Originally thought to be the language by which Adam originally spoke - it was also the celestial language, the language of the angels; God's language. For centuries, it was believed that the Enochian language was lost forever. People had heard of such a thing, but, ultimately it was either legend, or simply lost to time. It was thought the closest we had to the language was Biblical Hebrew - that was until the 1500's when one John Dee and his colleague, Edward Kelley were supposedly chosen as prophets to learn the the lost language; the first since Enoch to get such a privilege.
Over the years, again, it was thought that Dee's work was gone, as well as the illustrations from Kelley. A group known as the Golden Dawn took the reigns and continued their research into the Enochian language and, in turn, magick. Though, I don't want to give more than that away. What you need to know, is that a lot of magick beliefs spread from the Enochian mythos - Wicca draws from it, as well as tarot. It's incredibly fascinating to read about this lost language, and how it has evolved over the years, and how influential it is to millions who may not even be aware of it.
On a personal note, I've been quite interest in different forms of witchcraft and magick for as long as I can remember. What I've learned as that these words, runes, spells, sigils, and so on, have the potential to be very powerful. A lot of it is about belief, a lot of it is about self-empowerment - and whether the magick itself is real, self-empowerment and belief are never bad things. But to learn more about the language of the angels, be sure to give the episode a listen.
