NEW BOOK BY LON MILO DUQUETTE
In researching historic channelers for a blog post that never made it, I ran into a story of Lon Milo DuQuette at Market Wire.
First, in case you don't know, DuQuette, according to Wikipedia is
Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford, American writer, lecturer, and occultist best known as an author who applies humor in the field of Western Hermeticism.
Since 1975 he has been a National and International governing officer of Ordo Templi Orientis, a magical and fraternal organization founded some time around 1900. Since 1996 he has been the O.T.O.'s United States Deputy Grand Master and one of the most visible members of the secret society.
Market Watch reported on a Coast to Coast with George Noory radio broadcast featuring DuQuette and his new book, ENOCHIAN VISION MAGICK. From the website:
"It's a true story of war, politics, espionage, and magick and wizardry in
the days of Queen Elizabeth I," DuQuette recently told an audience in
London. "In order for the Virgin Queen to secure her throne, defeat the
Spanish, and establish the British Empire, she enlisted the aid of a real
live magician, Dr. John Dee. His first task was to astrologically
determine the date of the Queen's coronation. He then went on to become
her most trusted secret agent (who signed his secret dispatches 007). He
was also her wizard, and was credited with raising the storm that sank
the Spanish Armada in 1588. So famous was he in his day that Shakespeare
used Dee as the model for his storm-raising magician Prospero in his
famous play, 'The Tempest.'"
DuQuette's new book, "Enochian Vision Magick," reveals in exacting detail
the magical ceremonies performed by Dr. John Dee and his assistant Edward
Kelley, who for over three years had almost daily discussions with
'angels' in order to spy on the enemies of the Virgin Queen.
Perhaps when Opus Angelorum gets through with the members of my parish they can turn to Lon Milo DuQuette to discover the rituals needed for their angel encounter.
