    How To Go To A Medium: A Manual of Instruction
    by E. J. Dingwall M.A. (Author), Maurice B. Wright M.D. (Preface)

    cover (1).jpeg

    “Should be widely read by all who are interested in the subject of Psychical Research, and it is especially to be commended to those who are thinking of taking up the study of mediumistic phenomena.” -Maurice B. Wright, M.D. This fascinating book, long a classic in the fields of psychic phenomena and spiritualism, by providing practical advice about what to do and what to expect when consulting a medium, speaks directly to today’s awakened interest in the occult. Throughout history there have been people, usually women, able to convince themselves and others that they can communicate with the dead. In modern times these mediums have differed in their technique in many ways, but almost all of them agree in passing out of their normal consciousness into a state which is called the mediumistic trance. “Mr. Dingwall's book is written in order to try and obviate some of the dangers; to try and ensure that those who from any motive wish to investigate physical or mental mediumship should have some knowledge of the pitfalls which will surround them during their investigation. The book will render a very real service if it reaches the public it deserves...

    The Secret Doctrine of the Rosicrucians: A Lost Classic by Magus Incognito Paperback – November 1, 2012
    by William Walker Atkinson (Author), Clint Marsh (Editor)


    MyCoverImage.jpg

    The Rosicrucians are a truly "secret society" whose philosophy has come to light at different points in history. In the 1600s they issued a set of manifestos calling for an enlightened revolution that would reshape society into a more democratic ideal. Even the American Founding Fathers were influenced by these manifestos.

    Writing as Magus Incognito, William Walker Atkinson reintroduces a new generation of readers to the Rosicrucian ideals, as well as to a myriad of connections between occult concepts as varied as alchemy, reincarnation, the astral plane, auras, Eastern and Western mysticism, and the "evolution of mankind" among seven esoteric versions of planets in our solar system.

    There are more than two dozen organizations of Rosicrucians, with local groups in nearly every state--more than 100 in all--and half a million or more followers. Interest continues to be high in this group.

    Healing Magic, 10th Anniversary Edition: A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living
    by Robin Rose Bennett (Author) - Susun S. Weed (Foreword)

    Benn_9781583948385_epub_cvi_r1.jpg

    ARE YOU CURIOUS ABOUT MAGIC? Intrigued by herbal lore? Do you feel a connection to the earth? To the moon? Do you have prophetic dreams? See stories in a crystal or cards? Do you want to be more in charge of your own health care? And emotional needs? Do you want to celebrate life? To learn the women’s mystery stories? Are you wondering about the Wise Woman Tradition? Eager to learn more about Medicine Wheels? Interested in chakras and energy healing? Intrigued by magical ceremonies? Then you have come to the right place. You have opened a book that will enchant you and teach you and guide you and nourish you deeply and fully.

    My friend, Wise Woman and sister Green Witch Robin Rose, has gifted us all with a book that is partly a how- to manual for the aspiring Green Witch, partly a do-it-yourself shamanic journey, partly a book of lights and shadows, partly a compendium of herbal lore, partly a telling of stories—and wholly loving, compassionate, inclusive, and fun. She helps us wake up our senses and get intimate with the plant and animal life that thrive wherever we are, in city or country.

    For this she may perhaps best be known: That after her apprenticeship with me she returned to Manhattan, where she lived for another ten years, nourishing herself with herbal infusions, “a weed a day” from the parks of the City, and magical ceremonies alone and with others. Of course, she alleviated some chronic problems in the process. That’s Healing Magic.

    Healing Magic isn’t exotic or far away or costly or rare. Healing Magic is the art of allowing the magic in, no matter where you find yourself. It is the following of the cycles of the sun and the moon and the earth with intention and wisdom. It is the daily experience of using natural objects, of herbs as foods, of simple ceremony. It is the reawakening of the senses we had as children, a return to the ground of human beingness, a reconnection with the earth, a gladness that touches the heart.


    Of course, this is easier said than done—and thus this book: A training manual, shall we say, for those who wish to evoke Healing Magic every day. A training manual for those who would walk in beauty on the Mother Earth—with color, with song, with herbal medicine and magic, with breath, with attention, with magic, with mystery. Read these stories. Do these exercises. Your life will change—for the better.

    Healing Magic is the magic of the Wise Woman Way. It is the magic of the soup pot. It is the magic of the teacup. It is the magic of a candle. It is the magic of a story. It is the invisible magic. The mysterious movement of life. Breath and heartbeat, birth and death. The women’s mystery stories that reveal the powers of menstruation, the secrets of fertility, and the wisdom of menopause. The ever-changing moon who changes in us, the Wise Women. Healing Magic is centered in the heart, beating with the heartbeat of the earth.

    Healing Magic is the magic of the “barefoot doctor.” Chinese “barefoot doctors” traveled the countryside barefoot, helping and healing using simple herbs, not difficult-to-do practices or hard-to-get remedies. Similarly, Healing Magic: A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living offers us simple, safe ways of using common herbs for emotional and physical health and healing. It urges us to appreciate weeds instead of pills, a gentle touch instead of an injection, intuition instead of X-rays. (And if we must take pills or receive injections or submit to X-rays, then Healing Magic: A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living tells us how to connect with the Healing Magic in those things, too.)

    Healing Magic is like the magic of Tantric yoga. It invites us to honor and delight in our sacred senses, to trust our intuition, to value beauty and grace, to become thoroughly intimate with nature in all her aspects. It offers us specific ways to feel the flowing love of the Universe in every cell of our being. It encourages us to open ourselves to the wonder and play of the world. It reminds us that pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.


    Healing Magic: A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living is a garden of delights. Wander here as you will, picking fruit, smelling the flowers, delighting in the bees and butterflies, tasting the delicious greens, and savoring the fresh air and bubbling spring water. It is a journey you will want to make again and again, as each trip will bring new stories, new sights, new sensations to you. And each visit between its covers will help you reweave yourself more deeply into the healing cloak of the Ancients, will help you sit ever more firmly in the lap of the Wise Women who were your ancestors.

    Healing Magic: A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living is filled with green blessings. Don’t wait! Help yourself to a large serving.

    The Occult: The Ultimate Guide for Those Who Would Walk with the Gods
    by Colin Wilson (Author)

    21Pxb2bWxAL.jpg
    • Paperback: 800 pages
    • Publisher: Watkins Publishing (November 24, 2015)
    • Language: English
    • ISBN-10: 1780288468
    • ISBN-13: 978-1780288468
    Colin Wilson's great classic work is a comprehensive history of mystery and "magic". His genius lies in producing a skilful synthesis of the available material; clarifying without simplifying, seeing the occult in the light of reason and reason in the light of the mystical and paranormal. It is a journey of enlightenment – a wide-ranging survey of the whole subject and an insightful exploration of Man's latent powers. Republished two years after the author's death and with a new foreword by bibliographer Colin Stanley, Wilson brings his own refreshingly optimistic and stimulating interpretation to the worlds of the paranormal, the occult and the supernatural.

    "The Occult is the most interesting, informative and thought-provoking book on the subject I have read" --Sunday Telegraph

    The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage

    The Sacred Magic Of Abramelin The Mage Book 2 - Abramelin The Mage - Books Covers.jpg

    The Book of Abramelin tells the story of an Egyptian mage named Abramelin, or Abra-Melin, who taught a system of magic to Abraham of Worms, a German Jew presumed to have lived from c.1362 - c.1458. The system of magic from this book regained popularity in the 19th and 20th centuries due to the efforts of Mathers' translation, The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, its import within the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and later within the mystical system of Thelema (created in 1904 by Aleister Crowley).

    Unfortunately, Mathers used the least-reliable manuscript copy as the basis for his translation, and it contains many errors and omissions. The later English translation by Georg Dehn and Steven Guth, based on the earliest and most complete sources, is more scholarly and comprehensive. Dehn attributed authorship of The Book of Abramelin to Rabbi Yaakov Moelin (Hebrew ca. 1365-1427), a German Jewish Talmudist.

    Structure of the book

    The grimoire is framed as a sort of epistolary novel or autobiography in which Abraham of Worms describes his journey from Germany to Egypt and reveals Abramelin's magical and Kabbalistic secrets to his son Lamech. Internally the text dates itself to the year 1458.

    The story involves Abraham of Worms passing his magical and Kabbalistic secrets on to his son, and tells how he acquired his knowledge. Abraham recounts how he found Abramelin the Mage living in the desert outside an Egyptian town, Arachi or Araki, which borders the Nile. Abramelin's home sat atop a small hill surrounded by trees. He was an Egyptian mage and taught a powerful form of Kabbalistic magic to Abraham. He was a "venerable aged man", and very courteous and kind. He discussed nothing but "the Fear of God", leading a well-regulated life, and the evils of the "acquisition of riches and goods."

    Abramelin extracted a promise from Abraham that he would give up his "false dogmas" and live "in the Way and Law of the Lord." He then gave Abraham two manuscript books to copy for himself, asking for ten gold florins, which he took with the intention of distributing to seventy-two poor persons in Arachi. Upon his return fifteen days later, after having disposed of the payment money, Abramelin extracted an oath from Abraham to "serve and fear" the Lord, and to "live and die in His most Holy Law." After this, Abramelin gave Abraham the "Divine Science" and "True Magic" embedded within the two manuscripts, which he was to follow and give to only those whom he knew well.

    Origin of the manuscript

    The book exists in the form of six manuscripts and an early printed edition. The provenance of the text has not been definitively identified. The earliest manuscripts are two versions that date from about 1608, are written in German and are now found in Wolfenbuttel Another two manuscripts are in Dresden, and date from about 1700 and 1750 respectively.

    The first printed version, also in German, dates to 1725 and was printed in Cologne by Peter Hammer. A partial copy in Hebrew is found in the Bodleian Library in Oxford, and dates from around 1740. A manuscript copy existed in French in the Bibliotheque de l'Arsenal in Paris, an institution founded in 1797. The French copy has since disappeared, but is available on microfilm.

    All German copies of the text consist of four books: an autobiographical account of the travels of Abraham of Worms to Egypt, a book of assorted materials from the corpus of the practical Kabbalah (including some which is duplicated in the German-Jewish grimoire called "The Sixth and 7th Books of Moses") and the two books of magic given by Abramelin to Abraham. The well-known English translation by S.L. MacGregor Mathers from the French Manuscript in Paris contains only three of the four books. The Hebrew version in Oxford is limited to Book One, without reference to the further books.

    Of all the extant sources, the German manuscripts in Wolfenbuttel and Dresden are taken by scholars to be the authoritative texts. According to respected Kabbalah scholar Gershom Scholem, the Hebrew version in Oxford was translated into Hebrew from German. An analysis of the spelling and language usage in the French manuscript indicates that it dates to the 18th century, and that it was also likely copied from a German original. Although the author quotes from the Jewish Book of Psalms, the version given is not from the Hebrew rather, it is from the Latin Vulgate, a translation of the Bible employed by Roman Catholics at that time.

    The German esoteric scholar Georg Dehn has argued that the author of The Book of Abramelin was Rabbi Yaakov Moelin (Hebrew 1365-1427), a German Jewish Talmudist and posek (authority on Jewish law). (ref Georg Dehn, The Book of Abramelin: A New Translation, transl. by Steven Guth, Ibis Publishing, 2006)

    Magic word squares

    The practical magic of Abramelin (found in both Book III of the French text, and Book IV of the German original) centers around a set of talismans composed of magic word squares. These are similar to traditional magic squares, though the latter are usually composed of numbers, while Abramelin's squares contain letters. Commonly word squares are used as puzzles or as teaching aids for students. In the context of Abramelin, the focus becomes mystical--so that each square should contain words or names that relate to the magical goal of the square. A parallel is found in the famous Sator Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas word square, an altered version of which is also found among Abramelin's squares.

    For example, a square entitled "To walk under water for as long as you want" contains the word MAIAM, the Hebrew and Arabic word for "water". A square for recovering treasures of jewelry begins with the word TIPHARAH (a variant of Tiferet), which can mean "golden ring" in Hebrew and is also the name of the sphere of "Beauty" on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.

    About Author:

    Abramelin the Mage is one of the many "house-hold names" in occultism, though in reality very little is actually known about the man himself. What we know of him comes to us through a medieval manuscript preserved in the Bibliotheque de l'Arsenal in Paris. This text was a French copy from the 17th or 18th century of the original Hebrew manuscript. "The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, as delivered by Abraham the Jew unto his son Lamech, A.D. 1458," as the manuscript was titled, detailed the complete system of magick of an Egyptian sage by the name of Abramelin. It was translated into English by S.L. MacGregor Mathers of the Golden Dawn.

    The author of this book, Abraham of Wurzburg, was a Qabalist and connoisseur of magickal practices. In accordance with tradition, Abraham's eldest son received the Holy Qabalah. Wanting his younger son to also "...be able to admire, to consider, and to enjoy the marvels of the Lord," Abraham gave this book to Lamech when he felt he was old enough.

    In his introduction, Abraham narrates to his son the story of how he came upon the great magician in a small town on the banks of the Nile river. His interest in various magickal practices had led him on a tour of the civilized world, seeking out magicians and Qabalists, taking what he could learn from each.

    After describing how he came to learn the Sacred Magic of Abramelin, Abraham proceeds to explain in great detail the entire necessary operation, from the selection of an appropriate place, to the summoning of various spirits and demons to do the bidding of the magician. The book carefully details the qualifications necessary to become a magician, protections, asceticisms, purifications, evocations, vestments and prayers.

    The goal of paramount importance to the operation is the invocation, or knowledge and conversation, of the Holy Guardian Angel. This is the first written use of this term, which is now extremely common in modern occult literature. The Holy Guardian Angel, considered by many modern magicians to be the "Higher Self" or Augoeides, assists the magician through the remainder of the operation. The next step of the process is to evoke the denizens of hell, and force their allegiance and submission to the magician. Once the magician has mastered the evocation of good and evil spirits, commanding those spirits to do his will, and overcoming rebellious spirits, he can begin putting the spirits to work.

    The last part of the book gives specific instructions for clairvoyance, divining metals and treasure, warding off evil magick, healing illness, levitation, transportation, making oneself invisible, creating illusions, reading minds, and many various powers and magicks, both white and black, which the magician may now utilize.

    The "Abramelin operation," as it is often called, in reality consists of two seperate operations. The first operation, the attainment of knowledge and conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel, is the perfection and purification of the Self. It opens the path of communication between man and Divine. In the second operation the evil demons, who are sometimes considered the magician's "lower Self" or negative character traits, are conquered and commanded to do the magician's bidding by force of will and magick. This second operation would therefore fall into the category of medieval magick called goetia.

    It should be noted that while the two processes are essentially two different formulas, this has only been noted for the sake of analysing the operation. The knowledge and conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel is an essential prerequisite to the evocation of the evil spirits, unless the magician should desire to become enslaved to those demons which it was his initial desire to command.

    It is difficult to be sure how much of this system of magick was directly from Abramelin, and how much was embellished or added to by Abraham's extensive knowledge of the Qabalah, or by the French copyist's knowledge (or lack thereof) of the magickal processes detailed within the book. However, such considerations are for the historian, not for the magician. Despite a certain amount of dogmatism on the part of the author, an extremely viable method for attaining knowledge and conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel is presented therein. Due to this dogmatism and the general superstitious nature of many medieval grimoires, many magicians have rewritten the Abramelin operation, maintaining the same core formula and removing extraneous aspects. Most notable of these rewrites is Aleister Crowley's Liber Samekh.

    The Egyptian mage known as Abramelin will remain a mysterious figure in history, but the legacy of his system of magick will continue to live on for a long time to come.

    In this mind-bending exploration of traditional Christianity, firebrand Peter Rollins turns the tables on conventional wisdom, offering a fresh perspective focused on a life filled with love.

    Peter Rollins knows one magic trick—now, make sure you watch closely. It has three parts: the Pledge, the Turn, and the Prestige. In Divine Magician, each part comes into play as he explores a radical view of interacting with the world in love.

    Rollins argues that the Christian event, reenacted in the Eucharist, is indeed a type of magic trick, one that is echoed in the great vanishing acts performed by magicians throughout the ages. In this trick, a divine object is presented to us (the Pledge), disappears (the Turn), and then returns (the Prestige). But just as the returned object in a classic vanishing act is not really the same object—but another that looks the same—so this book argues that the return of God is not simply the return of what was initially presented, but rather a radical way of interacting with the world. In an effort to unearth the power of Christianity, Rollins uses this framework to explain the mystery of faith that has been lost on the church. In the same vein as Rob Bell’s bestseller Love Wins, this book pushes the boundaries of theology, presenting a stirring vision at the forefront of re-imagined modern Christianity.

    As a dynamic speaker as he is in writing, Rollins examines traditional religious notions from a revolutionary and refreshingly original perspective. At the heart of his message is a life lived through profound love. Just perhaps, says Rollins, the radical message found in Christianity might be one that the church can show allegiance to.
