Several folks have sent messages asking me to post some instructions on learning to skry. Since doing the job right will take a while, I'm going to do it in sections, as I have the time. Here's a rough outline of what needs to be covered, IMO:

1. Preliminaries

- Relaxation

- Concentration

2. Creating a "Refuge" or "Sacred Space"

- General considerations

- Establishing the space

- Establishing your "astral" body in the space

- The "surprise me" technique

- The "magick mirror"

- Pathworking

3. Testing your visions

4. Applying these skills to Enochian magick.

For some parts of this I can adapt things I've already written for other contexts for other parts, I'll be starting from scratch, and may need a few iterations before I have something I feel comfortable posting. So the posts in the series are likely to be erratic. No one should hesitate to ask questions if anything isn't clear I know my prose gets cumbersome at times.

Credit Where Credit Is Due department: Following a programmer's maxim -- "Steal only from the best." -- much of what I'll say in this and following parts is shamelessly stolen from my memories of a course taught by the Fellowship of the Inner Light, a group based in Virginia Beach, VA in the mid-to-late 70's. The founder of the group has since died, and I haven't the faintest idea if they are still in business. But if you find the opportunity to take their "Inner Light Consciousness" course, or even to acquire the manuals for the course, it is well worth the trouble. While not labeled as such, it is an introduction to all the things a beginning magician needs to know but which nobody ever tells them.



About Author:

Benjamin Rowe (1952 - 2002) was an American Kaballist and ceremonial magician who published numerous articles on the Kabbalah and the magical system communicated to Dr. John Dee by angels known as Enochian magic. He incorporated Golden Dawn components into his version of the system and drew from the ritual structure laid out by Frater Achad. He was one of the few Enochian magicians who did ritual work and published his findings. He was active on the Internet under his own name and under the alias of Josh Norton.
