This new deluxe hardcover edition is revised and enlarged, and now includes two CD’s with expanded versions of the practical exercises and original music and sound effects. Magical Christianity is a means of bringing about spiritual transformation. It refers to both a mystical transfiguration of the soul and an active participation in the mediation of Divine Love, Power, and Wisdom to little suspected inner aspects of Creation. Contact with such inner realities is achieved through the imaginative use of symbolic material – images, legends, myths, rites and ceremonies. This fascinating and insightful study of Christian magical lore focuses on the significance of seven key archetypes:
The Sphere – symbol of wholeness and perfection.
The Axis – the way of passage between the planes.
The Holy Fire – arousing one’s inner power and potential.
The Center – archetype of the Divine Source.
The Wheel of Life – sacred time, the psychic tides and the Magical Life of Christ.
The Three Realms – ancient cosmology and the inner worlds.
The Planes of Being – the nature of reality, inner plane contacts.
The book also includes a full sequence of practical exercises designed to enable readers to experience for themselves the inner methods of the Christian Mysteries.
