The Art and Practice of Creative Visualization

The Art and Practice of Creative Visualization

Author: Ophiel
ISBN-10: 1578630010
ISBN-13: 978-1578630011

This book is a great introduction to the techniques of creative visualization. It is set out in a workbook format, though the majority of the practical exercises are given in the last chapters. The author does repeat himself, though he does give a valid reason for so doing.

I would recommend starting the exercises in the earlier chapter as soon as you read it.  If you have an aversion to ceremonial magic, you may find the exercises a little annoying, but, for the purposes of progressing, work through the practice visualizations as given.   This is only a starting point and the author gives symbols which are quite easy to start with, regardless of their purpose.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to undertake basic work in the occult arts.  The author helps to de-mystify what is an awkward, esoteric subject to teach.

    This is one of my favorite books. Ophiel is my absolute favorite occult author. The tattwa symbols are an excellent set of tools to start training yourself with, be sure to do them as much as possible! Also do not neglect the banishing ritual, that is extremely useful as well.

  2. Thank you for your comments, espowyn. As someone who is not wiccan (or even a ceremonial magician), and have been using visualisation techniques for over 20 years, I have no use for the banishing ritual, so don’t use it. I do believe it is possible to use something in its place, though, hence my recommendations for the book.

    I do think, however, the tattwa symbols are an excellent starting point for visualisation skills.
