I must say that The Exorcist's Handbook (Josephine McCarthy) is one of the most stimulating and thought provoking books I have read for a while! This book is all written from first-hand experience and contains many insightful anecdotal examples of genuine spirit infestation and subsequent exorcisms. The Exorcist's Handbook is one of those rare gems that exude the kind of practical knowledge only acquired through many years of exhaustive work in a unique and challenging esoteric field. Josephine McCarthy deliberately approached the writing of The Exorcist's Handbook in a casual, personal way without any specific magical or religious viewpoint, making it readily accessible to practitioners from a variety of spiritual/magical backgrounds:
"Once you get past the surface manifestations of our spiritual constructs, the Inner worlds and the beings that inhabit them are the same--our spiritual constructs/religions are simply Man's attempt to create an interface with Divinity"
Throughout the book, Josephine presents a number of inner visions which will attune the aspirant to the inner contacts required to achieve this work. Once the visions have been completed, the retention of these paths and lines of spiritual power becomes a vital and ever evolving tool in the work of the exorcist. The book also examines in fine detail, what an exorcist actually does, from initial assessment of the situation to the actual exorcism of discarnate entities and explores radical aspects of magical practice concerning archangelic patterns within platonic solids, building blocks of the enigmatic Metatron Cube.
Seldom explored aspects of the Exorcists life are also examined, such as, the loneliness of the path, descriptions of working deeply in the Abyss, the psychological and dietary requirements to stay well, guardians, talismans, traditional ritual cleansing techniques and the correct level of psychic protection required to be effective.
Without a doubt, The Exorcist's Handbook is no nonsense, common sense description of genuine magical practice and presents a clear explanation of the role of an exorcist, the skills, knowledge and disciplines and inner contact to a spiritual line required of this most Divine duty.
