Book Description

12 Dec 2005
For decades the Parker Brothers' popular board game has been condemened as a devil's gateway to perilous obsessions and spiritual possessions. While these claims recall a special brand of witch-trial era hysteria, author Cornelius defends these accusations as entirely true. Aleister Crowley, the greatest ceremonial magician of the 20th century, advocated the Ouija board's use as an occult tool. This fascinating work combines a history of the Ouija Board, Crowley's writings on this device and practical advice on its proper use.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent advice on the talking board 24 Feb 2006
By Paolo Sammut VINE VOICE
This is a really good book which covers the use of an ouija board from a very responsible perspective.
The book does not advocate the childish use of an ouija board as a Parker brothers game or spiritual quick fix and he acknowleges that problems can occur when the board is misused.
Avoiding the more salubrious horror stories often associated with talking boards, the book begins with a potted history of the ouija before going into an occult explaination of what is actually happening. The authors position (which is one I fully agree with) is that the board is more than just a childs toy and is fully capable of opening a door to allow entities ingress into our plane. When mishandled such boards can be dangerous but when used as a tool in spirit communication it can be very powerful tool.
In places Cornelius draws heavily in the Golden Dawn interpretation of John Dee's Enochian magic and shows how a board can be used to summon and handle an elemental being from this tradition. The chapters on this are very clear and full of practical advice such as asking the entity for ways to strengthen the contact or how to "feed" the entity.
Cornelius also gives practical warnings such as no matter what it requests do not feed it blood (we dont want to create something with a taste for blood as vampires are bad news) or to beware the dangers of an inflated ego - Just because the entity talking through the board may tell you that you are perfect; it doesnt actually mean that you are. Actually all good common sense stuff but information which needs to be spelled out to many people and I think we have needed to see this in print for a long time.
The authors perspective is very Thelemic drawing on the work and philosophy of Aleister Crowley and this is no bad thing. Whilst I myself am not a thelemite I can understand and appreciate that Crowley was full of wisdom and practical advice in magic and we have much to learn from him.
This book is highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant! 12 Jan 2009
Absolutely brilliant book!

Treat it as you want to be treated yourself. You will not regret it.
This book is for both:
-who cares about correct use of Ouija Board
-who is into enochian system

There are no horror stories - just facts and suggestions.

I like the phrase: To the critics the question is simple "How do we stop the unearthly or demonic manifestations from occuring?" The magician, on other hand should be asking "How do we open the portal correctly..."

How? You will find it out in this book!

Good luck!

If you are interested in the history of Talking Boards, and the infamous Baltimore born Ouija Board this is the book for you.
No nonsense account of the history, it's usage, and a guide for those wishing to use a Ouija Board.
Aleister Crowley was to many the authority on the use of the board and the author conveys Crowleys methods and makes them an easy to read and understand.
Well laid out and the perfect guide.
