Magical Theory


The French mage Eliphas Lévi was an accomplished author of the 19th century.  In The Druid Magical Handbook,  Greer had this to say about him and his work:

What we call imagination, Lévi terms the diaphane, the subtle body through which the human mind can sense and shape the astral light (life force).  Thus dreams and day dreams, stray thoughts and all the other products of imagination are not simply inside one human brain; some are created by the diaphane of the person who experiences them, others come from outside, but all are projected onto the astral light.  When this is done with intention and concentration, it sets up patterns and flows in the astral light and these accomplish magical effects.

In peace,

N.
