Now revised and updated, Subtle Energy describes the underlying philosophy and theory behind this approach to psychic ability. It then applies this theoretical model in a way that teaches you how to perform these abilities without depending on cookie-cutter techniques or rigid visualizations. By having a firm model for understanding how psychic energy works, you can develop a much stronger, holistic practice that is apparent in your day to day life. Informational chapters describe the recent history of subtle energy work since the 1900s that has brought us to where we are today. You will learn about the nature of the energy body, chakras, and the aura that we all possess. Additional chapters provide information on how to use psychic ability to interface with other magical or occult systems, including elemental magic, personal alchemy, and ritual magic. A Hermetic philosophical framework allows for easy integration with other Western magical systems. A discussion of elements, both Eastern and Western, provides a framework for integrating even into some Eastern forms of magic.
