Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a manual designed for self-initiations involving dream states, astral projection, and the actual creation of what is known by many scholars as the Body of Light.
This is a unique approach to experiencing the afterlife while still alive. The book will have a wide reading appeal to groups including the paranormal and supernatural.
Traditional techniques from a qabalistic and alchemical source perspective are utilized to great advantage in the book. In one sense, this book prepares the reader for the transition from the physical to the spiritual.
There are ten chapters. Among the topics discussed and shared with the reader are what is defined as the mansions of the soul, maps of eternity, lucid dreaming as a gateway to the invisible, and the voice and the body of light, assumption of the Godform and preparing for death and beyond, the fascinating approaches to astral projection through the Qabala and alchemy, and assisting the dying. The appendices cover the powers of the Hebrew letters, among other topics.
Readers will find this an educational reading experience. It gives much food for thought.
