interesting. here is a link to the sefer.indeed, people speculate about the author, who seems to be Rabbi Avraham ben Yitzchak of Grenada. some say he is the same as Rabbi Avraham ben Yitzchak of Narbonne (1110-1179). then again, he cites the Zohar, although some passages he quotes are not in our Zohar. perhaps on this basis we could say that he was post-Zohar, and thus 13th century.though of course they will say that the *ideas* therein are from much earlier.even so, a pretty early work. but even so, pretty random.kt,josh
oops: the link:http://hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=31194&pgnum=28the text that appears begins a few lines down in the first column, vayigash eliyahu.

and in this article, various gedolim weigh in on whether this is actually a segulah or a gimmick... http://www.kikar.net/22238.html
