I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all those who have contributed to my happiness and to all those who helped make this book possible. This includes my wife, family, friends, editors, and readers. You are blessed with abundance and beauty.
The theories and ideas presented in this book were communicated to me through the spirit of Arthur Edward Waite, the famed occult scholar. I realize this statement may sound preposterous to some people. That is understandable. I have no problem with any skepticism and resistance to my assertions regarding this. I am confident that the majority of the people purchasing this book are open-minded and comfortable with the idea of spirit communication.
My knowledge of Waite is limited to a few Internet websites I consulted after discovering his presence in my life. An accounting of this matter is brought up later in the book. I understand that A.E. Waite is best known for the Waite tarot card deck, which was illustrated by Pamela Cole Smith during his involvement with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. However, Waite’s greatest life contribution was to occult literature. Waite was an avowed mystic and author of several texts concerned with the occult sciences.
