Read full description of the books:
Originally published in 1967, the Art and Practice of Getting Material Things Through Creative Visualization arrived nearly three decades before The Secret. With more of an occult, than a New Age twist, the one-name author, Ophiel, talks readers through what is essentially the Law of Attraction, but he never calls it that.
Also, Hippie Readers, look at that cover. Awesome.
Ophiel tends to write portions of the book that he thinks are most important in all caps. LIKE THIS. It can be annoying.
Another interesting quirk, Ophiel talks about him/herself in the third person, at all times.
In this passage, he's talking about why he wrote this book, and you get to see the author's style in action: "Ophiel's defect consists of not being about to accept self-styled prophets' sayings, and teachings, without raising the following awkward question- and making the following embarrassing test. The question is IS WHAT THEY SAY TRUE? and the test is DOES WHAT THEY SAY WORK, AND PRODUCE RESULTS? And if what they SAY DOES NOT WORK THEN IT IS NOT TRUE, and into the garbage can with it!!" pg iii
Ophiel claims that creative visualization techniques don't always work for a variety of reasons. He gives the reader exercises and suggestions for improving their results.
"In Creative Visualization work all the planes involved in our cosmic existence are used, the Etheric, the Lower Astral, The Higher Astral, the Mental Plane, and the Causal Plane, AND ALL THESE PLANES HAVE DEFINITE RULES AND LAWS FROM WHICH THEY WILL NOT DEVIATE ONE IOTA." pg 5. Again, with the capitalization.
He also has interesting ideas about reasons why beginners fail out of the gate. He cites something called "the sphere of availability": "The new student then proceeds to visualize for LARGE THINGS. BIG THINGS. VALUABLE THINGS. Things that are far beyond his ability- not to visualize-imagine-desire, BUT FAR BEYOND HIS PRESENT ABILITY TO DEMONSTRATE-VISUALIZE." pg 31.
Ophiel uses different words, but essentially he says, start small, celebrate the small victories and increase your "sphere of availability" in that manner. He also gives practices to improve your visualization skills.
Honestly, if asked to recommend a teacher for creative visualization, I'd say, skip Ophiel and read Abraham Hicks. They're a lot more fun.
