By Paolo Sammut VINE VOICE
This is an immensly readable book from two of the best modern writers on occultism. Much of the material presented is entering the public domain for the first time, and the would be student who applies him or her self to the lessons given by Dolores and Herbie will find that the techniques given work in a profound way. Dont expect "Harry Potter" special effects, except on the inner levels and dont under estimate the amount of work required to see results. But work it does.
Both authors are very experienced and will enable the student to avoid many common pitfuls along the way. I certainly hope to see more books from this dynamic-duo

This is a truly awesome book, in fact it is addictive! As you read it, it draws you in. The details and explanations are clear and concise. Also the examples they show make it easy for anyone to fully understand the message. For a complex subject it is well presented and if you feel you want to expand your mind to new and quite exciting possibilities then you really need this one, I too hope they produce more, I have read this twice through and it is still just as captivating as the first time. I especially liked the section which covered time travel and the creation of your own thought forms. Check it out for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars advanced magickal exercises 29 Nov 2011
By steve c
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Magical Use Of Thought Forms is an extraordinary book that contains detailed explanations and exercises on creating astral forms, expert visualizing, creating memory palaces and how to use them. I cannot recommend this enough for anyone who wishes to train their imagination, it's especially useful for anyone interested in magickal application but can also be used for a number of ends including entertainment.
The exercises are not a quick fix and take time and effort, but that is part of the value of this book- it teaches how to do these things right from the first step.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic, Fascinating, Much More Than Theory 8 Nov 2012
This is an interesting book, being a true collaboration between two well-known and very much respected practitioners in the field of the Western Mysteries. The book is divided into three parts - part 1, the nature of 'reality' - specifically, earthly reality; part 2, the astral plane and part 3, the use of magickal thought forms once the first two parts have been taken into account.

This is very much a practical manual, and whilst there are some detailed explanations, the meat of the text is instructional. Therefore, it's no 'quick fix' and it won't appeal to those who like their metaphysical reading to come mashed up on a spoon. There are chapters on 'The Triangle of Causation', 'The Location of Occult Power', 'The Composition of Astral Matter', and rather exciting, 'The Training of the Troubadour', 'Curses, Familiars and Homunculi'.

The book gives a deeper insight into subjects the beginning occultist will have encountered already in any reputable training program - for example, more ways to work into the creation of one's own inner castle, and how to build (and just as importantly) dismiss and dismantle thought forms. It covers a lot of ground and I almost felt that I'd rather have had less, but in greater depth. However, this is nit-picking on my part, and perhaps a little impertinent.

All in all a very useful adjunct to existing metaphysical work. Probably not ideal for the casual reader. Suitable for the very serious beginner and the intermediate practitioner. Full of useful background information for those putting a presentation or lecture together. Well laid out and readable text for those with a visual disability.

4.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant text for the neophyte 21 May 2004
By Don Eglinski - Published on Amazon.com
I don't know what the other reviewers are complaining about, there are numerous texts on magic in print and many of them are for the more adept student (why not try Julius Evola's work), but I found this to be one book I recomment most highly to beginners. It covers the most important aspects of what is fundamental to all magical workings: concentration and visualization exercises. This book, in conjunction with Peter J. Carroll's Liber Null & Psychonaut, lay down the groundwork using semantics that are easy to grasp and not overly burdened with ritual, dogma, and other baggage from magic's past. Highly suggested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cogito ergo sum 12 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Truly magical. This book comes under the heading of "I wish I had read this years ago". These two authors write seamlessly, you can hardly tell where one leaves off and another begins. They interact very well. On the theoretical side there is a wealth of knowledge to delve into and thimk about. This part alone kept me alternately reading and thinking for almost a week. I did not want to miss a word. Then I got to the practical side and had to keep re-reading paragraphs because I kept getting new insights.
All in all a remarkable book . I hope they write more. The combination of scientific and practical information is stunning, and so down to earth, unlike the airy fairy stuff that is published nowadays.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is destined to become a classic of occult writing 8 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally a book that is written for the advanced practioner. This is not a rehash of material written by others. This is unique. This is material you haven't seen before. Mrs. Ashcroft-Nowicki and Mr. Brennan have put together a true workbook for those interested in the advanced magical work of the creation of the homunuculus, along with practical exercises for developing the ability to do so. Make no mistake, this is work. But if you are willing to put in the effort to perform this art, the tools you will need are here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much chat... 15 Jan 2002
By S. parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of both of these authors, but this book just takes too long to get to the point. The authors seem to feel a need to set up a detailed intellectual rationale for the existence of the 'astral' plane, and for human ability to work with it. They take up what amounts to the first half of the book with essays and examples, and only in the second half do they even begin to address actual techniques. All in all still interesting, but I'd expect more meat from these writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all in yer head!!! 14 May 2007
By Thomas S. Ingle - Published on Amazon.com
If you've ever practiced magick and felt that there was maybe some minor detail missing from the experience, something more you could do to make it more effective, some secret that's been kept from you but you knew was just under your nose, this is the book for you!!! The exercises and ideas in this book will help you to realize your full potential! I'm not giving away any of the details of the book, but I am telling you that if you're serious about your art, then you should pick this up...If you learn just one single thing that's new, it'll be worth the price!!
