Abracadabra - What the Heck Does it Mean?

Abracadabra


Also spelled abrakadabra and abrahadabra, it is a word that has many ties to the ancient occult.


While the actual origin of the word is unknown, some believe that is was derived from the initials of the Hebraic words Ab, Ben, and ruach a Cadesch which translates as "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost." Others believe that it was the name of the supreme deity of the Assyrians.


Ephraim Goodman, the world-renowned linguist, declares that the term comes from the Aramaic phrase, Avra Kedavra which translates into "I shall create - as that which i say"


The first written record of the word comes from the third-century physician, Quintus Severus Sammonicus. He was a Gnostic physician to Roman Emperor, Septimius Severus and used the word to treat tertian fever, asthma, and agues.

When written, it is usually seen as:
