"In the Days of the Lion, spawned of the Evil Brood, The Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet with Herne the Hunter - Lord of the Trees - to be his Son and do his bidding. The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble!"
The Hooded Man Prophecy - October 31st 1993.
This has been covered before, but here I need to use this as the best example of what I am saying in this post. This was a piece taken from the Robin of Sherwood series on British TV, but this is an altered version, and the alterations make clear that this prophecy is valid for our times. This piece has 58 Words and the altered sentence is 'The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness are strong within him' which was originally 'The Powers of Light and Darkness are strong within him'. This piece has 58 Letters. Using English Gematria where A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 etc. the Number 58 gives us the word ROBIN - 18 + 15 + 2 + 9 + 14. 'The Hooded Man' is 'Robin Hood'.
A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, D = 4, E = 5, F = 6, G = 7, H = 8, I = 9, J = 10, K = 11, L = 12, M = 13, N = 14, O = 15, P = 16, Q = 17, R = 18, S = 19, T = 20, U = 21, V = 22, W = 23, X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26.
To show that English Gematria, which was earlier used by David Lane (Wodensson) in his Hermetic Writings, is valid we should consider that there are 26 Letters of the English Alphabet, and that the word GOD adds to 26. Thus - 'The All' is 'The One'. It is necessary to understand that the above prophecy only came to light after a dream in which the altered parts were emphasised by being repeated twice so that I remembered them clearly on waking. I came across the writings of David Lane after this and this triggered the idea that English Gematria was the key to this. I came about this via a totally different approach to this than its originator.
WID-AR = 23 + 9 + 4 + 1 + 18 = 55.
INGWE = 9 + 14 + 7 + 23 + 5 = 58 (= ROBIN).
WODEN = 23 + 15 + 4 + 5 + 14 = 61.
HOPE = 8 + 15 + 16 + 5 = 44. ("The Beginning and the End - The First and the Last".)
We can see here how using certain numbers we can 'empower' ritual work; Woden would use 61 words perhaps and Wid-Ar 55 words. That Sacred Numbers are effective can be seen in the Magic Number 88 related to HelgiH, which is also two Wyn-Runes face-to-face as the Man-Rune - Rune of the Manu.
