I remember as a child growing up in Jamaica being sent home from school early one day because the coffin with the 4 dranco ‘vultures’ was looking for Mr. Brown. The teachers had heard that the coffin which rolled up and down the many streets with these talking birds saying ‘Mr. Brown, Mr. Brown, looking for Mr. Brown’, were heading our way. After the children had been let out we all ran to our different homes hoping that we would never meet up on this travesty, which we never did. There was a man who worked across the street from where I lived, he was a nice man I remember, because he used to give the children treats and he was kind to us….his name was Mr. Brown. As I ran pass him to go into my gate I stopped for a moment and in my innocence yelled ‘Mr. Brown guh hide di dranco dem ah look fi yuh’ he responded ‘ah nuh me dawling’, but I didn’t slow down enough to hear the rest. I hastily ran home to go underneath my bed, to suck my finger which was my comfort at the time, (miss mi finga it bad bad). Dr. L. W. de Laurence was an American author and publisher on Occult and Spiritual topics. He wrote many books; among them are The Master Key and The great book of Hindu Magic. He had a reputation of being a book pirate, often times publishing books that were written by others under his own name and without ever giving credit to the true authors (plagiarism). For example The Pictorial Key to the Tarot and The Rider-Waite, Tarot Decks were published by de Laurence without giving any credit to either AE Waite or Pamela Coleman-Smith. His reputation for plagiarism unfortunately overshadowed his considerable contributions to occultism. He is credited to date on the development of Jamaican Obeah and many stories were told about him and his magic which drove fear in many a people in several Jamaican communities. De Laurence influenced obeah which involved the use of crystal balls, tarot cards and sympathetic magic. The six and seven books of Moses was considered the bible by the de Laurence practitioners. Many Jamaicans wrote to de Laurence whose catalog company was based in Chicago IL, wanting to learn how to divine, invoke spirits and heal, among other things I once knew a lady, a Jamaican Obeah woman’ her name was Miss. Claudine, her husband had died and as we do in the Caribbean, he was buried in the backyard. Miss. Claudine was the known Obeah woman in the community and it was said that she was very good. There came a time when Miss. Claudine felt that she was under some spiritual attack by neighboring scientists (Obeah man/woman) so she felt as if she had to protect herself even more than she was already protected. Miss. Claudine, believing that if she exhumed her dead husband’s body, took a piece of his bone, pounded it into powder and mixed it with other things (which I will not divulge) she would have the extra protection of her dead husband. I can tell you for a fact that is not true…gross!, but not true. Miss Claudine gives credit of her occult knowledge to de Laurence as do many others like her in Jamaica. Stories of de Lauence have been told many a times such as the one that I just spoke of and also of the famous ‘Shirley duppy’ in Rollington Town which left many people abandoning their houses; rocks being thrown at houses with no view of the stone thrower, rain falling only in a particular spot (dat deh secret deh ah Africa), babies cribs caught on fire with no harm to the baby and one that I have never forgotten about a young woman being pregnant for fourteen months who was taken out to see a spiritualist and was given medicine and told to sit over a pail when she got home, which was what she did – she sat as if she wanted to urinate in the pail, while she did so, what came out of her was an egg, scribbled on the egg in blue ink was LEAVE MY MAN NORMAN ALONE!!. The story was that this was done to her by Normans baby’s mother who had gone to an Obeah man who was a student of de Laurence. It has been said that de Laurence only terrorizes those who owes him and this is the way he demands of payment (lol). De Laurence practiced Hindu occultism and mastered it to some degree, and contrary to most thought he was a white man, he knew how to use the power of the mind. Most of what Jamaicans thought came from de Laurence were just an illusion; things that they saw through fear which IS POSSIBLE , because of the power of the mind. The mind is ever becoming, so to invoke the elemental world is possible indeed. Everything is controlled by the elements, earth, wind, fire etc…the mind creates. Just as how man uses the mind to create the television and keep upgrading its science so was it possible for de Laurence to gain access into the magical realms and create, all of us, every human being have the ability to do this, if we wake up and move away from the entrapment of religion and doctrine, ego, materialism, glamour and desire, which if we are truthful to ourselves, humans will never let go of most of these things and will continue to be asleep and unable to develop to their true spiritual potential. Many of his books teaches how to do just that (read the Master Key a very good read). There is a very great saying that goes ‘There is nothing to fear but fear itself’. De Laurence also practiced Christianity and before he died he was consecrated a Bishop; a true master manipulator and magician he was. Here is an excerpt from one of his books…….. THE MYSTIC TEST BOOK OF THE HINDU OCCULT CHAMBERS (not sure if this was plagiarized) To understand the mysterious Occult influences of the Celestial Realm upon the Intellectual and deep upon the Terrestrial , and to realize how to develop ourselves so as to be a Master who is capable of attracting to his own soul the supreme influences of these worlds, whereby he may be able to operate and do wonderful things by these Occult Powers —— to read the past and future of man, to know the secret counsels of men, to attract wealth, to overcome secret enemies and animals, to procure the love and favors of those around you, to deflect or expel disease, to prolong the days of your life on the earth plane, to foretell future events, to see clairvoyantly and realize things happening many hundred miles away, and such likes as these. That this lies within the possibilities of the soul of man may seem incredible but you will realize that the above possibilities can be confirmed and verified by common sense and reason. For the Cringing, Skeptical, Material fool and doubter the writer cares nothing/…..(My sentiments exactly, De Laurence!) With all that is said and done de Laurence is still to be respected because not only was he a greate marketer for his catalog company, he also provided social literature for those seeking to embrace their spirituality. If fear should be put aside then de Laurence’s name should not make you quake. Only understand that he was a genius in his days (in way of marketing his company and getting his name out in the world, commanding far and respect, which was all strategy on his part) and there were others greater than him, Alister Crowley, and even greater than he Eliphas Levi, and one of my favorites Rudolph Steiner, to name a few, not to mention greater than these, because in the nooks and crannies hills , crevices and even on the main land of our sweet Africa, are the Babalawos, Priests and priestesses. Humble as they are, these aforementioned men, cannot hold a candle to them in Africa or even to African Spirituality. I write the story because of the same fear that his name evoked in all whom I knew while growing up in Jamaica, but there was something in ME Obara Meji, even as a child that made me want to study him, (not to become a obeah woman but to understand why he evoked so much fear, it fascinated me), and as I grew into my spirituality I researched him and found out that there were even greater than him, as mentioned above. I am a Spiritualist/Traditionalist who walks on the right (benevolently) and I believe Dr. L. W. deLaurence did the same but preferred to be known otherwise, which gave rise to his fame. He was a great strategist. If you should ever hear his name mentioned, remove doubt and fear from your mind and remember this post. May Goodness and Mercy be with you Dr. de Laurence where ever you reside now in the realm……lolol…laughing at fear! Like attracts Like, be always of good and up standing character, never let evil be found once within your thoughts or actions!!..Man may not see your deeds when done in secrecy, but THERE is a great force that knows EVERYTHING, a force so great we know not what to call it, nor can we ever see it, but it lives within us, and all around us, this force some may call God, others may say Allah, Olodumare, Jehovah, Yahweh, Jah, but no matter what it is called and regardless if you believe in it or about it, it EXIST!!!!, It is the all seeing eye, it is the force of reckon and you will never escape the judgment of your deeds because it sees and knows all. Walk on the good path my people, sow good seeds!!!…Obara Meji!!! When a dying man cries, it is not because of where he is going which he knows nothing about, but because of what he wishes he would have done in the world he is leaving behind…….Yoruba Proverb.

THERE IS A WONDERFUL POST ON THIS BLOG i DID OF HIM LALIBELA, BUT THE BLOGGERS DID NOT GET INTO IT MUCH, IT AMY HAVE BEEN A BIT TOO DEEP FOR THEM, LET ME SEE IF i AN FIND IT FOR YOU
Ok, that is my understanding of him and I just wanted to clarify.
I have heard of Rudolf Steiner but I don’t know anything about him and I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Eliphas Levi.
I just Googled them both and will seek to gain an insight
As usual, much appreciated…
Alister Crowley was very dark. He delved into things which were of a negative influence and he even mixed homosexuality and pedophilia into acts as a spiritualist, I believe he began well, but got beside himself and lost track.
Eliphas Levi and especially Rudolf Steiner were wonderful!
Obara, what’s your take on Alister Crowley? Dealerance’ Man, that’s what I heard when I was young–only to now realize that they were talking about de Lawrence. LOL

My mother had a stroke which later turned into brain cancer. The Doctor’s could never figure out what type of cancer she had. Even with treatment the tumor would grow bigger and bigger. They had different specialist from around the world fly in to try and figure out this type of Brain tumor my mother had. She had surgery and they removed the tumor, but then the tumor in her brain grew back even larger in less than 6 days. This had all the Doctor’s and Specialist baffled. They couldn’t figure it out.

Is it true that de laurence want to rise up from death like my Lord Jesus christ?
I started to read a piece of the Master Key and the Obeah Bible (which is band in Jamaica) and it seem to me that there were a lot of myths around De Lawrence because of he preached mind power (The very same thing that is in the secret, only marketed differently). When people dont understand something they say its strange or its Obeah. Just like the secret or the bible I believe if you read and use them for good then good will follow you and if you read De Lawrence for bad then… These bookos were written in… Read more »

Thank you….I have gained new insite into my spirituality all due to Embracingspirituality I have learned to embrace what I have and appreciate it as a gift and not a curse, with that being said I am acquiring the knowledge with the understanding to move forward in a more peacefull zen life…..I have to say Obara you are opening up my Chakra’s. I have noticed that I am more calm nowadays, did you know that Chakra’s are associated with the endocrine and nervouse system? hence mediation?
Aseeeeeeeeee!!!!! nuhbizness appreciate ur openess
I have much respect for De Laurence and his work, he was a great magician, and master manipulator, the teacher can teach the students, however he can not tell the students what to do with his teachings….. Some choose to use his work for evil, others use it for good…. People do use his name to frighten other but they are uneducated Obara, I am glad you chose to educate those that did not know.
people uses his nme up to this day to frighten people because his name denotes fear, that is why when I made the title of the post i said read without fear
no it is not….ppl who claims that they areobeah man/woman will use him nam to put fear in ppl..but they are lying
yeah..me just think that but…me a try get de concept…d lawrence nowadays is just a different type of obeah…me did a work wid one man one time…seh him a help me…den when him start get outlandish…me seh me waan disembark…him seh it’s like d. lawrence…but nowadays its like lodge right
lodge is a total different concept. existed long before d w lawrence
no sharlenerose not at all like Jim Jones…the people who wanted to learn from him and who did and used it for eveil it was THEIR choice. He did not teach or promote evil none at all
ofcourse Jim jones proclaimed evil to an extent or mostly was driven by his own worldly paranoia cause it most definitely was not a 100% spiritual movement but more a social pandemic on the unfortunate souls.
can you tell us more stories about very powerful revivalist in jamaica . PLEASE
i am fascinated as well, i’d always heard about d. lawrence…but i always thought it was some type of lodge like you know the masons…etc…i never realized that this was a type of magic practiced by people…d. lawrence would be like jim jones leading the masses into his type of school of thought…ok
