Aleister Crowley,Magick in Theory and Practice

There are three primary magical operations.

1. Invocation/Evocation. The first consists of invoking or evoking Enochian forces, intelligent or otherwise. This involves those traditional magical operations wherein deities or demons are brought into materialization or physical embodiment under your conscious control.

2. Out of Body Traveling. The second operation consists of leaving the physical cosmic plane and traveling through the subtle cosmic planes that surround the Earth in your subtle body. This is sometimes called traveling in the astral body, or astral traveling. However, the Enochian system views the astral as only one of several cosmic planes and therefore prefers to cali the process traveling in the Spirit Vision. The terco Spirit Vision implies maintaining a consciousness which is higher than the normal brain consciousness. Traveling in the Spirit Vision differs from dreaming in that you must retain full consciousness during the operation and return to your physical body with unbroken memory.

3. Skrying. A third operation is called skrying. This consists of using a shewstone or other appropriate device to focus your consciousness on the subtle planes while retaining awareness of, and control over, your physical body. Skrying is a form of meditation. While the mind roams the Watchtowers and Aethyrs, the body can speak of the visions and voices that are encountered by the mind.

This operation was the favorite of Dee and Kelly. In addition, Crowley used the method of skrying to visit each of the thirty Aethyrs.
