Dec 20, Marika Charalambous rated it it was amazing Shelves: Awesome little book on so much more than just working with an Ouija board.
It’s in fact a gentle introduction into the occult and working with magick. If you’re interested in knowing more about enochian magic, by reading this book you’ll figure out soon if it’s something you want to pursue further in the realms of ceremonial magic or not.
Also speaking purely about books on the Ouija board, this is the best and more indepth guide I’ve come across so far. Sep 04, Sum Merland rated it it was amazing. A very interresting read and a the best “system” i ever met considering the Ouija Board. Sep 19, Bert Zee rated it it was ok.
Its got some big ideas, some interesting facts and practical tips for using Ouija but for me the best thing about this book is the gorgeous cover I much preferred Ouija by Stoker Hunt, I found it far more accessible. Apr 08, Keith rated it liked it Shelves: A pretty quick, and fairly informative, read. Better written and edited than some of the author’s other work, though I still found it a bit repetitive at points.
Not annoyingly so, however; it was the kind of repeat that one expects and perhaps even appreciates in a longer work, and probably would have been quite handy if I was reading it over the span of a month, instead of a couple days. And some of the repetition is clearly deliberate to drive home a point, such as “As above, so below,” or “O A pretty quick, and fairly informative, read.

Frankly, I’d like to have seen more of all of that, though I think he gave about everything possible on the history of the Parker Brother product. Also, helpfully outlined at the end is a suggested ritual format for more safely using talking boards, whether purchased or home-built.

It’s given me several ideas I might look to try out myself, if a suitable group can be found. One other point worth noting: Cornelius is an old-school Thelemic magician, and while he may have intended this book for beginners and the uninitiated, as it were, he does occasionally lapse into technical terminology without bothering to explain it.
I would therefore consider this to be an intermediate-level text, and recommend the reader have some baseline familiarity with Qabala and Crowleyan magick theory before digging in, or at least have resources available to look up the obscure bits before progressing.
In all, quite a bargain from the remainder pile, though perhaps not quite worth the original list price. Apr 19, Jordan rated it liked it. The historical information was interesting, and the author even manages to inject a few moments of levity into the slim volume. Then it focuses on practical elements of the ritual usage of the Ouija board. And at this point, I must take issue with the Crowleyian methodology. You need a chain The historical information was interesting, and the author even manages to inject a few moments of levity into the slim volume.
You need a chain with exactly links, really? I would call it a good book, though where your thoughts lie on Crowley will make a difference in your enjoyment. Mar 15, Eric Williamson rated it liked it. An okay book on using the board in conjunction with ceremonial magic.
Using The Great Beasts name is little more than window dressing to sell copies, as he is an afterthought the author tosses out every now and then. It does contain a nice history of the Ouija and earlier spirit boards.
Probably merits a 3. Sep 10, Thiago Ribeiro rated it liked it. Compelling, but took me too deep in things I wished to know little of. Do not mess or play with the table, regardless of your beliefs. The outcome may be unpleasant.
