Magic words are often used by magicians when performing magic tricks on stage. One of the most common spells is the ‘Abracadabra’ spell. Although this word is known to many people, fewer people likely know its origin. Apart from ‘Abracadabra’, there are several other magic words that are popularly used by stage magicians. However, the origin of the words ‘Abracadabra’ is also a mystery to most people. On the gold coast magician, there are many magic shows that you can get from home because the magicians there can come directly to your home.
According to a website, the word ‘Abracadabra’ has its origins in the ancient Roman world. At that time, this word was not used for show, but it was believed to contain strong magical powers. According to one theory, the word ‘Abracadabra’ comes from the Hebrew word ‘ab, ben, Ruach HaKodesh, which translates as ‘Father, Son and Holy Spirit’., So, the word ‘Abracadabra’ is the prayer of the Holy Trinity. According to another theory, this magic word comes from another magic word known as ‘abraxas’. This word is special, because of its letters, in Greek numerology, i.e. the number of days in a year.
Despite the theories, however, ‘Abracadabra’ was used as a talisman for centuries. The 2nd-century Roman scholar Serenus Sammonicus, for example, provides a description in the book Liber Medicinalis on how this magic word is used. This talisman involves the word being written on a piece of parchment over and over again, with a letter erased each time, until only one remain.
In the Middle Ages, people believed that any event they couldn’t explain might be caused by magic, and most of the inhabitants of Medieval Europe were so afraid of having charms cast on them that they used the Abracadabra to ward off potential errors sent their way. As in Roman times, it was also used to “cure” diseases. The use of this ‘Abracadabra’ pyramid was mentioned by writers in later centuries, including the 16th century.
