This book offers many methods for building a light body and using it in ritual, visionary work, pathworking, astral projection, and shapeshifting. Ashcroft-Nowicki also discusses the history of light beings, their evidence in the bible, and their impact on literature, art, and poetry.

Heal your spirit with the wisdom and magic of the Qabalah. For anyone who has ever experienced feelings of hopelessness and spiritual desolation, Illuminations offers a path to the restoration of faith. Renowned author and mystic Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki shares a mystical healing process she discovered during her own dark night of the soul. Hers is a unique system of performing magic and meditations with some of the most potent sacred symbols ever created-the twenty-two letters of the ancient Hebrew alphabet, the Aleph-Beth. Primal, powerful, and highly spiritual, each letter of the Aleph-Beth is the living energy pattern of a Being of grace and power. Attuning to their respective energies through meditation, prayer, and ritual helps alleviate spiritual suffering and achieve breakthroughs in self-awareness. Straightforward and in-depth instruction for exploring the healing powers of each of the twenty-two letters is given, including poetry; a prayer; a detailed summary of the letter; meditations; pathworking; a psalm of praise, petition, or thanksgiving; and a ritual. You can draw upon the strength, wisdom, and creative power of an infinitely compassionate source when you heal your spirit with the wisdom and magic of Qabalah.

I am in the process of reading this book, and will update this when I have finished it. So far, it strikes me as a profoundly healing work. Born out of her own pain, as the author states, it not only introduces the unfamiliar reader to the power of the Hebrew letters, it also contains new insights and information for those already familiar with them.
It provides the reader with clear instructions on how to work with the letters. A beautifully written prayer begins each chapter, setting the scene for her ideas about and analysis of each letter. A clear picture of each letter is included. Her instructions for how to use each letter in meditation, as well as a ritual specifically written for each letter, are all included.
In her introduction, Ashcroft-Nowicki sets out a course of study for the entire alphabet. Students can do as much with these instructions as they wish. As one follows along in the book, the idea of how to heal the self of past hurts and sadness is clearly built up. This is a powerful, compassionate process, reflecting the personality of the author of the book, and of course even more reflecting the true nature of the letters themselves.
I have known the author for many years and want to disclose this to be honest in this review. However, long before I met her I had read some of her books, and the way her writing spoke to me--the way she presents ideas--was what drew me to meet her eventually. But even if I had never met her, I would be writing an identical opinion of the book. If you have any interest in these letters, which form the basis of one of the world's great religions and also contribute so much to the Western Mystery Tradition, read this book.

What a beautiful, inspiring, and informative publication! Thank you, Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, for just what I needed! I am studying the ancient Hebrew letters and this book reveals and instills the awe, magic, and power of these letters of Light.

How can one write a review of a book you have written ??All I can say is that this book came out of a time when my belief in myself, my faith, and my purpose in life was at an all time low.I was lifted out of this apathy when I picked up a book on the Hebrew letters and began to first..to meditate on them and then to write a prayer to go with each one. Out of those prayers came a renewal of faith in myself and what I believed in.

There are times in our lives when everyone of us comes to an emotional brick wall and we can only sit and look at it. Then along comes one small idea.. a glimmer of light/hope and suddenly the bricks begin to come down.

I wrote this firstly to clarify what was happening to me... then to let others know that there is always hope. In the story of Pandora she lets all the ills and bad things out of the box... BUT the last thing of all to emerge is HOPE. In order to know/find Hope you have to experience all the disasters first otherwise you donr recognises hope when you finally meet it.

excellent - very informative and helpful for those who are following this path
This is a beautiful book, from its page layout and illustrations to the wonderful poetry and prose within. As an example allow me to quote an appropriate section:

The letter Peh: Mouth

Through thee let me praise
the One True Creator
the One who is above all
and by whom we are made manifest.
Be thou my way of speech.
Let my tongue be guided by thee
that my words may be fair to all.

I think that short excerpt says it all. Dolores is a living example of devotion and loving kindness.
