This book will show you how to get in touch with your inner guide (or "spirit guide" as some people term it). It's as simple as daydreaming, but rather more useful. With the guide you can work on the blocks inside you that result in mental, emotional and physical problems. Children take to it very easily, of course... but some adults have more reserve. It is clearly written and based on the author's own experiences. Although there's quite a lot of text relating it to Tarot, kundalini and astrology, this isn't necessary to understand or follow, unless you respond to those subjects. You could, if you prefer, skip all that and simply go with the guide through an inner landscape to directly access the parts of the psyche (aka unconscious) that are the cause of life problems. These areas of the psyche can manifest internally as figures, objects, scenes or dramas. They are then addressed and changed from blocks (undermining negative energy) to positive energy, which becomes integrated into the ego. Once the guide has been contacted, they can be accessed in any life situation as an inner companion and wise voice. Sometimes the result is hard to believe when an inner or outer situation changes immediately as if by magic, but sometimes it is much slower going - all depending on how much there is to work through. I would call this book life-changing, if it is put into practice. I know quite a few people who have tried it out - and it has worked for them. Go for it.

Anyone who is practicing meditation,yoga,magick or any other spiritual discipline should read this book. Occult texts are full of warnings of what could happen with unguided practices. Usually, one had to seek a teacher who could guide one through the dangers of occult excercises. However, according to the author, our best teachers are our own inner guides. He shows how to contact ones inner guide through visualization and gives advice on all aspects of working with inner guides. This book is not about channeling, but the only book I ever found on hermetism. Hermetism is the practice of magick using imagination alone without the need of drawing circles on the ground to control spiritual forces that are summoned forth. The author provides an invaluable service to all students of spirituality by writing this book. He proves that students here in the west, have a rich tradition they can use without having to travel to the east in search of a guru. You can be your own teacher and this book shows how to do it.
