Interesting content let down by the narrator and his 'vocal frying'. The book gives a little background information to give explanations and reasonings behind certain practices/beliefs. I didn't feel I had wasted my money at the end of the book..
WOW . . . . What I remember from this book: You can ask protection or ask blessings in a ritual form from some of these entities (I didn't take notes): God, Jesus, Ra, Isis, Thor, Odin, Angel Raphael, Angel Michael, Mother Mary, and probably more. Some of these entities are in charge of various cardinal points and in some of the asking you must hold your palm either down or to the side and move your arm either down or across your chest to make a symbolic cross motion. (Longer up and down if you are a Christian)
You can mix salt with water (measurements given) and put it in a spray bottle and stand in the 5.4 Foot "exact" circle and turn around spraying the bottle, but make sure when you stop you are facing East (or was that north? or west? . . . I should have taken notes. There was something about North . . . I think Odin was in the North and was in charge of protection of the night entities or was that Ra in his fiery chariot crossing the sky? . . . )
Is a person supposed to use up the whole spray bottle of salty water? If so, what if the bottle runs out when you facing the wrong direction?
Important: You shouldn't Astral Travel if you are on a metal spring bed.
Back to the 5.4 FOOT exact diameter circle. Since there are 12 inches in a foot - does the ".4" refer to 4 inches or forty percent of 12 inches? . . . it's hard to be *exact* without knowing that answer. There is a 50 percent probability that the protection circle could be made not exact depending on the answer.
In all the books I've read about astral travel, the unseen dimensions, consciousness exploration, etc . . . this has the most layers of one person's personal belief systems and rituals overlaid throughout.
I think there is an audience for this book - there are people who believe in and give their power over to named entities and find comfort in rituals and rules and association with Names and magic-ness.
But for those people who are exploring the Greater Reality, seeking an understanding of why we are here and what *here* is, this book may feel like a step back and rather restrictive. The people who are Inner Explorers have also broken the bonds of belief systems and there is a lot of bondage to Names and belief in *their* power in this book.
If you are seeking rituals and protective invocations and circles . . . this book is for you.
