Magid (Jewish mysticism)

Magid (or Maggid) is a Hebrew word, it is used as a term in Kabbalah describing the Jewish communication with God, whereby an angel or the soul of a saint who died, reveals a living mystical experience, via a dream or a daydream, usually resulting from using magical means. A Magid Torah reveals a person, usually through the Kabbalah, that tells one about future events.
