Voyage of the Visions

Postby Heru » Mon Jan 20, 2014 10:41 am

I recently picked up a copy of Visions and Voices and am about to embark on a voyage through the visions in the manner suggested in chapter 5 (Enjoying the Journey p.76-79). But what I would like to know is how to pace this journey. My natural inclination is to plough through the book and gorge myself on the analyses of the visions. But for my own benefit I've decided to resist this (understandable) temptation and devote at least 30 days, reading and meditating on one vision per day. Is this too fast or too slow? I realise it's a bit of a dumb question, but I'm just looking for opinions. :)

Well, as I think you suspect, this is pretty individual.

Crowley received the actual visions at (on the average) about one a day or a little less. If you were treating this as a magical retirement, that might be a pace for it - committing yourself to doing one a day - but otherwise it's probably way too intense.

For the class series we conducted in LA, we did one a week. That was, of course, convenient for scheduling the class, but it also seemed about the right pace for many people to assimilate the shifts.

Does that help?

PS - Thanks for getting the book. I really hope you enjoy it. I'm quite interested in what results you get.

It does indeed! Thanks Jim. :)

I'm enjoying it already. The introductory chapters were/are excellent. Although I have to admit that I did have to grit my teeth a bit through some of the astrology sections. It's just not my forte.

When I saw your suggested method of reading the visions my eyes lit up. The concept of turning the abstract and symbolic into something constructive and usable is highly appealing to my practical side. As soon as I read that part I instantly knew that's how I wanted to tackle the rest of the book. It never occured to me that the content of Liber 418 could be used in that way. Great call Jim. :D
