Product Description

Product Description

There is a world that mirrors our own. Everything in this world is made of substance finer than air, finer than light, finer than thought itself - the aether. In the aether there are inner sensations such as ideas and feelings that are as tangible as anything in the material world. In The Mentalist's Handbook, Clint Marsh gives us a glimpse of this world. He offers step-by-step exercises, detailed and beautifully written explanations and definitions, and gorgeous black and white illustrations by award-winning artist Jeff Hoke. Inspired by esoteric, occult, and magic books published over the last 150 years, Marsh has aspired to create something of singular importance in the tradition of classic occult manuals. Both practical and whimsical, and complete with visual aids, this field guide to the paranormal will appeal to students of the New Age, esoteric scholars, readers of post-modern and magical-realism, angel, ghost and fairy enthusiasts, comic and graphica fans, and artists alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 8 April 2009
By Amir Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's a very concise book for the most part. The only thing that i would have liked to see is some resources so that the reader can do their own research and draw any conclusions they might have.

The information about the phantom hounds was interesting, although there was no specific instruction on how one might attract/summon said hound. Would be interesting, don't you think?

The exercises designed to develop awareness of our surroundings is the most important to me, because i feel that many people walk around in a sort of trance and it seems that they have a hard time externalizing awareness and noticing what's going on around you. We miss too much. These exercises can help a person notice when someone intends to do them harm or is attracted to them.

The exercises on astral projection are informative, however, for most people who don't have a clue as to the working of the conscious, subconcious, and super conscious minds ( edgar Cayce, Huna), then astral projection is a hit or miss thing.

Overall, it's a good book and for anyone that wants to TURLY understand that book and put the information to use for your own purposes, whatever they may be, then you'll want to check out a few books that sort of Phil in the blanks:

"The laws of psychic phenomenon" By Thompson Jay hudson
Anything By CW leadbeater and Annie Besant
Anything by Donna Eden (more information on the chakras/aetheric links)
Anything By Frank Randolp Young(Psychic/mental influence)
Anything by Walter William Atkinson

In addition to the resources above, there's a wealth of scientific research that validates psychic influence and the existence of the chakras, two books that come to mind immediately are:

1) Experiments in distant influence
2) Experiments in mental suggestion

There are countless other resources out there for you to study.

Overall, it's a good read and there's lots of useful information, especially the breathing meditation, which is essential to performing the experiments/tasks in the book.

Cheers,

Amir

5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Text For Increasing Awareness and Visualisation 19 May 2010
By Clara Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is very dense in information and exercises. I was impressed at how my memory and visualization skills improved by using one of the detailed methods for image recall/ability to observe and recall small details/ use mind's eye to receive psychic information. A very interesting, exciting, and useful guide for improving one's senses and awareness. I will re-read this many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book and author! led to some "experiences" 2 Mar 2012
By justin laventer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My wife and i have been involved in meditation, visualization, tantra, yoga, just about anything that could be said to calm and train the mind.

After doing some of the exercises in this book I was able to lucid dream, or astral travel if you want to call it that for the first time. I could control everything i saw, felt and did. I didn't have to imagine it because I could actually see it as if I was living a very vivid dream. The feeling was amazing! i was so excited and enthusiastic i would have been wagging my tail if i had one.

The second experience i had was of absolute terror. It's the only way I can describe it. It left me shaking and cuddling up to my wife like a child.

The author invites anyone to contact him with their experience and I did. He e-mailed me back promptly and referred me to "the dweller on the threshold" and how to deal with it. His advice worked and was amazed at how willing he was to help.

very easy to read and follow. Sometimes the simplest way can be the most rewarding. I definitely recommend it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a clever book 10 July 2008
By CrysAnne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book struck me as something Harry Potter might have tucked away in his backpack at Hogwarts. It was purposely written in a charming, arcane style perfectly fitting of the subject matter. The illustrations, also, are brilliant.

Yet beyond this pleasant presentation, the book is also quite meaty, delivering much information on the paranormal and specifically, astral dynamics. I enjoyed it quite a lot and recommend it to anyone interested in this subject matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars the Psychic experimenter's handbook 17 Aug 2009
By silver elves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
we were visiting some relatives near Atlanta...
dear explorers of the astral realms,
... and found this book in a metaphysical bookstore there (we love visiting metaphysical bookstore wherever we go) and something about this book called to us. We kept looking at it and wandering around the store and then coming back to it again. It is rather a compendium of everything to do with learning to use psychic power, astral travel (or what Jung would call Active Imagination), and the types of beings you may meet on the astral planes. It gives practical exercises to help you throughout and is wonderfully illustrated. It is somewhat a beginner's book, so if you've already read a number of books on these subjects, you're unlikely to find much new here. Still, in spite of that, we enjoyed this book and its very down to earth, practical approach to the subject.
kyela,
the silver elves
