An interesting announcement on Amazon.co.uk:
Aleister Crowley and the Ouija Board by J Edward Cornelius. Edition: Paperback
Advocates who scream that the Ouija board is dangerous will most likely find this the most contemptible book ever written. They will ague that the Ouija board is well known for causing obsessions, possessions, unleashing poltergeists and creating hauntings; claiming it to be a portal into Hell. But what they fail to realize is that these tragedies prove beyond a shred of a doubt that the board is capable of bridging the invisible world with our own…
Instead of fearing this concept why not learn to use it more effectively? One of the greatest ceremonial magicians of all time, Aleister Crowley, actually advocated the Ouija board’s use. If it were only a child’s game would he have given the implement any consideration at all?
He strongly believed that the board utilizes the same principles which were practiced by the famed Elizabethan magician John Dee. He used a crystal ball as a means of skrying or seeing into the invisible realms. Within these realms Dee encountered entities who communicated their messages by pointing to one letter at a time on huge boards of letters. According to Crowley, the same principle holds true for the talking board but, instead of going within the invisible realms, we summon the entities into our world in order for them to move the triangle from one letter to another to spell out messages.
One of Crowley’s earliest students, Frater Achad (Charles Stansfeld Jones), had great success when using the Ouija board. In fact, Crowley was so pleased with the outcome that he wrote, “You see how very satisfactory it is, but I believe things improve greatly with practice.” We agree and this book will attempt to show how anyone, with the proper knowledge, can bring invisible beings through an Ouija board. It’s actually quite simple, often so simple that it eludes people. Magicians have long known that the triangular shape of the planchette is a unique magickal symbol that automatically acts as an invisible doorway. In fact, it’s so unique that when someone places their hands on the triangle and asks, “Is Someone there?”, it enacts a simplistic but never-the-less magical command for an entity to be summoned through the portal.
This book will teach you how to cast open the invisible gates and you’ll learn for the first time anywhere the truth about dark secrets regarding the talking board which have only been whispered behind closed doors for centuries.
