Overview

Knowledge is power. And when it comes to magic, the more you know, the more successful you will become. This book provides you with a thorough introduction to magical theory along with proven and useful exercises and spells designed to enhance and expand your magical abilities.

Often called ceremonial or ritual magic, high magic incorporates occult and esoteric knowledge from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome as well as medieval Judaism and Christianity. This stream of knowledge has been practiced by diverse magical groups: the Freemasons, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Ordo Templi Orientis, as well as luminaries such as W.B. Yeats, Alesiter Crowley, and Kenneth Anger.

Respected magician and occult scholar Frater U:. D:. is an adept with decades of experience in the theory and practice of high magic. Novice and even advanced magicians will find many practical gems within these pages, and those familiar with occult theory will appreciate his practical perspective on many key magical topics, including money magic, chaos magic, cyber magic, trance work, and planetary and sigil magic. The techniques presented in this text, practiced regularly with diligence and dedication, provide the basis for a lifetime of truly powerful magical experiences.

    Excellent beginning to end! For those expereinced and new to magic!

    Well worth reading.Twice. First to get the bigger picture, secondly, to begin rigorous practice. Not an overnight read. Designed to assist with building visualization skills, an introduction to symbol systems, and offers intelligent theory as to how and why magic works.

    a must have for any serious student of magic.
