In deciding to align myself with the unlimited power within myself and start taking steps forward I have recently thrown myself back into rigorous study and review of books on practical spirituality. I picked up the ebooks that comprise E.A.'s Complete Works. (By the way if anyone who is authorized can pm me the OAA material I would be grateful).
A few days ago I proceeded to order a several other books to add to my collection. Some that were recommended by people here, one that was referenced frequently by E.A. throughout his tomes.
Early on in my career as a dabbler I had a copy of Simon’s Necronomicon, and although I read it with extreme interest and fascination, I did not follow through with any of the workings, being guided by my mentors at the time to stay away from it. A few days after my first book order I decided to pick up all extant works of the Simon edition of the Necronomicon, to prepare for working through the Mastering Evocation: Omnipotence Course after I finish the Mastering Divination: Omniscience Course, and be able to fully immerse myself in preparatory immersion.
Today I went to check on the shipping status of my orders. It appears that the first shipment has been delayed by a powerful storm that has shut down shipping, and the Necronomicon materials may be arriving first even though I ordered them days later.
