This was the first metaphysical book I read in the late 80's. It introduced me to the power of the imagination, journeying to other 'realms' and meeting with my Guide- an experience that has been the most life changing event of my life. His writing is a bit dogmatic. Ed was an astrologer and a Jungian Analyst.
He had very particular beliefs and he shared them. What is most striking about his contribution is that he offers others a path to find out their own truth. So, if you get hung-up on Ed's This was the first metaphysical book I read in the late 80's. So, if you get hung-up on Ed's truths about reality, Guides and the afterworld then you should simply follow his lead and find your own answers.
Thats the best a teacher can do. For myself, I treat this book with great reverence despite it's 'flaws'. I'm old enough to know that I don't have to buy everything a teacher is teaching in order to learn and prosper from the learning. Enjoy this most powerful calling to connect with that part of your being that will change your life for the better. Feb 05, Paul Bard rated it it was amazing.
Carl Jung admitted that his methods of inner exploration Active Imagination were risky, but it is not until this work was published that a safe and reliable way to conduct shamanic work has been established.

The author seems to conflate inner and outer levels of truth at times, which can lead to unintentional absurdities, but if you regard his pronunciations of inner truths as his experience only, they become excellent points of exploration. The meat of the book is the meditation itself, which is idiosyncratic and the only safe way known to undertake this kind of archetypal work.
But the questions and answers section is excellent, providing enormously helpful tips on how to actually negotiate the many sticky situations one inevitably finds oneself in whilst exploring these inner realms. In summary, the book represents not only a unique contribution, but a definitive discovery of great utility for spiritual research: a safe way to access and initiate into shamanic realms and return in a stable and progressive way.
This alone makes it a remarkable underground work, which should be read by many more. Edit: on a re-reading, this book keeps getting better for what it is. May 08, Davida added it. This is one of those books I will refer back to often. I really enjoyed it and even met my own inner guide. There is one thing about human beings that is consistent throughout the world: we do not follow instructions carefully. The reason for this title is to get your attention.
Sit in a comfortable, straight-back chair, with your spine erect and both feet flat on the floor. Separate the two sides of the body don't have your arms or legs touching each other or cr Read and Follow These Instructions Carefully All quotes are from the Second Impression in of The Aquarian Press publication dated Separate the two sides of the body don't have your arms or legs touching each other or crossed , with your thighs parallel to the floor and your hands resting lightly on the thighs, palms up and open.
The reason for this is to prevent the circuit of your energy being closed. Close your eyes, and invent a cave around you as if you have just walked into the cave and the entrance is at your back. The cave will become clearer as your mind begins to see its details, like having your eyes get used to the dark. Be as sensory as you can Use all your senses. As in Hypnotherapy, the more the senses are used, the more 'real' the impressions that are received.
Be sure you are observing and sensing the environment while being in your body and looking out of your eyes. It would be so easy to watch an image of yourself, but then you wouldn't be present in the experience, you would be disconnected. When you can feel yourself in the cave, even though things may still be vague at this point, move forward and to the left, away from the cave entrance, and find some kind of doorway or opening there on the left that will lead you out into a landscape.
This first part of the movement is necessary for the rest to work. It has some connection to ancient spiritual processes. Take a step out into the landscape when it appears, feeling the new type of ground under your feet. The landscape will feel real, so be there, in that space. Then with your mind call for an animal to come to you. Let it be unknown to you. Ask the animal to lead you off to the right to where your Inner Guide awaits you.
Let the animal lead you, and keep from anticipating where that might end. The animal will lead you to the feet of an unknown male figure - your first Guide. The initial Inner Guide will be an unknown male figure for both men and women. Start receiving impressions about the figure. Allow the impressions to come to you uncritically. You will be presented with significant information, which will be useful when you review the experience later.
Be sure to ask the figure if he is your true Guide and if he has the power to protect you in the inner realms. If he's a false Guide, he will disappear. Then ask the Guide to take your right hand in his left. The reverse would be appropriate for left-handed people. Again, make sure all your senses are in play during this portion of the process.
Ask your Guide then to point to where The Sun is in the sky of your inner world. As the position of the Guide is in the Ninth House of your birth chart, the relative position of the Sun in your chart should correspond to where you see it in this environment.
If it doesn't, or the Guide does not point out the Sun, you are with a false Guide. Look for another Guide to the right of the false Guide, and know that he is nearby. Call to him, and give him your permission to appear to you. Don't accept any known figure from your outer world. After your Guide takes your hand and points out where The Sun is and you see it, ask The Sun to come down, in human form, to where you and your Guide are. It may appear as a man or a woman, so try not to preconceive its appearance.
When you and your Inner Guide are together with The Sun figure, direct your attention to The Sun and ask it to send as much light and love into you physically as you can handle at that particular time. Absorb the energy as it comes. This is when the experience may suddenly feel 'real' because none of us know how to make something like that up. Now is the time to ask two questions: 1.
