Abracadabra is a mystical word or expression that is used in incantations, on amulets, etc., as a magical means of warding off misfortune, harm, or illness. A magic word that cured diseases. It means “I will create as I speak,” as documented in ancient Hebrew writings or Aramaic “I create like the word” (אברא כדברא), to folk etymologies that point to similar words in Latin and Greek such as abraxas or to its similarity to the first four letters of the Greek alphabet.
‘Abra’ is the Aramaic equivalent of the Hebrew ‘avra,’ meaning, ‘I will create. ‘ While ‘cadabra’ is the Aramaic equivalent of the Hebrew ‘kedoobar,’ meaning ‘as was spoken. ‘ Together the phrase means, ‘I will create as has been spoken,’.
Christians later adopted it to ward off evil spirits and demons. Today abracadabra is associated with magicians and stage magic.
