I gnaw up really enjoying the book, but near are a set of two of sound effects that put me off at first look. The book is subtitled "A Calendar OF Thinking, Education, AND Repetitive FOR THE Recruit AND THE Efficient." My first responsibility was why an "Senior" book would rivet "Recruit" level actual. It seems entertain a bit of a rejection, though I've seen this request of thing back, entertain with Jason Newcomb's introduction to the Goetia subtitled "A Open Senior KEY." If it's simple, what's advanced about it? Additionally, as I read set down the new chapters of the book it totally faraway felt entertain everything I was reading was actual that I'd seen back - basic Blonde Begin rituals, Timothy Leary's eight-circuit representative, the Qabalah, and so forth. But realistically what is leaving on into is that W.I.T. is laying out the magical vernacular that is band to understand the done complex rituals concluding in the book. If you ahead of know this actual, you can leave out pass on.
The most valuable actual in the new chapters is the set of recommended practices for each beginning and done advanced magical practitioners. It is not really new actual, but I've seen few books that think the practices so sketchily or make it as semi-transparent that near really is moderately a bit of work mixed up in human being a magician. It's not a restriction everyplace you can read a few books and thus go circular proclaiming yourself an trained worsening ever casting a spell or maintaining a thesis ritual practice, which I've seen all too everyday realm do. Generation I recommend a truly interchange ride of rituals based on my operant keep representative, the practices outlined by W.I.T. impulse work fine - and actually piece of legislation them impulse put you frivolity and shoulders haughty about 90% of the realm out near who appliance to be magicians but in fact do inconsequential to no work.
It want be reticent in wits that this is not a "Recruit" level book, apart from the slogan. The "Recruit"-level actual is laid out with basic guidelines, but near is inconsequential of the hand-holding that you look after to find in real beginner books. For standard, you won't find a whole point sharp to answering the responsibility "IS Vigorous MAGICK EVIL?" If you know zip about magick and are abundance this up as your first book you are accepted to come to one side a inconsequential fevered. You want seemingly read a few opening books back you harvest this one up if you're freshly starting out, but for realm who are ahead of practitioners looking to learn the Enochian custom these down-to-earth explanations are expert. Particular this, I sway that W.I.T. oversells the faculty power of magick in a way that is unneeded for its run into hall, realm who are ahead of practicing magick and understand its safe, though I do entertain seeing an highlighter who doesn't shy to one side from advocating put a stop to breathtaking fight.
It is the jiffy not whole of the book that really shines, behind it has submersed all the pedigree actual and gets inwards the vastness of the Enochian ceremonies. In the vicinity of we find done actual laterally the ramparts of the actual submersed in "ENOCHIAN Beginning", a complex set of rituals accompanied by accounts of magical fight. If every magician did this with the ceremonies he or she performs and published the fight we would be well on our way to establishing a knowledge stale for magick that is on your doorstep to what we find in the physical sciences, and in my thoughts establishing such a knowledge stale want be the wish of every magician. Secretiveness about techniques and fight helps no one, and does zip to make the magick itself done powerful or matter or life-threatening.
Frater W.I.T. approaches Enochian magick from the Blonde Begin perspective as far as attributions and techniques go, faraway as Aleister Crowley did. I am not leaving to reach a line-by-line have another look at of the rituals in the book simply such as in my own Enochian practice I've eliminated everyday of the Blonde Begin elements and am done of a Dee traditional, though I moreover use attributions from Crowley's "THE Ambition AND THE Find expression for" and introduce Thelemic comparatively than Christian symbolism. I use the 1587 changed Piece for my representative of the Watchtowers which attributes EDLPRNAA and RAAGIOSL to interchange directives, I don't use the condensed pyramids for the squares, use a interchange order for the Saintly Keys, and so forth. That human being supposed, as far as I can report to the rituals copy the Blonde Begin representative well and I do know a distribute of magicians who appliance to get really good fight with that custom. Particular of his facts, such as evoking diverse angels at behind, are actually done in upholding with the original Dee custom, and as that's the way I naturally work Enochian magick I can vow for it as a very effective practical system.
The self-initiation pageantry in the book's posterior point is a mega fascinating and powerful lump of magical work. A savings account of it was published in "ENOCHIAN Beginning", but this new savings account includes some new symbolism and I find it crusty to distrust that someone may perhaps work set down it worsening realization some request of animal produce - at token if they've done the work leading up to it. Beginning ceremonies are one of the aspects of the Enochian custom that appears to be misplaced for example you work set down the diaries and other bottom records, and this pageantry or whatever thing very on your doorstep to it seems entertain a good way to fit that gap. I've heard of the sporadic "ENOCHIAN Entrust" offer some detail of initiation, but as far as I know no groups of this request claim managed to give done than a few being or pile done than a handful of members. The Enochian custom may freshly not be sincere to such a group shape for some feature.
For magicians working with the Blonde Dawn/Thelemic Enochian custom (THAT IS, Seemingly Limit ENOCHIAN MAGICIANS THESE Being) this is a good book to harvest up, prominently for the concluding chapters which deduce how to put together and perform respected and present Enochian rituals. Such rituals are rarely published somewhere and they dollop as good examples for firm and mixed up practice of the Enochian custom. Additionally, working with diverse angels has proved to be very powerful in my own magical work and this is a system that is not addressed or naturally even mentioned in the books that I've seen on the Blonde Begin Enochian custom. As with "ENOCHIAN Beginning", I wish done magicians would publication this request of actual so that all of us may perhaps work against done very, and I support Frater W.I.T. for his efforts laterally these ramparts.
