Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether you are searching for love, seeking abundance, or looking to right a wrong, the ancient powers of magick are all around us, always ready to positively influence events through willpower and ritual—conscious intention and precise performance. Bestselling author D. J. Conway shows how to integrate magickal practices into your daily life and reap the benefits of their richly diverse potential in this omnibus edition of four popular titles in the Little Book of Magic series.

Altar Magick: Creating an altar helps us become more receptive to the sacred. Learn where and how to build an altar, what to include, and how it can focus and enhance your spiritual practice at home.

Candle Magick: Candle burning is a simple yet powerful practice, and a potent form of sympathetic magick. Learn how to choose the type and color of candles appropriate for selected spells and rituals.

Pendulum Magick: The pendulum is an ancient tool used in

divining, healing, and decision making. Learn how to make a pendulum and harness its power for gaining insight into the future.

Healing Magick: The practice of blending magick with healing is older than recorded history. Learn the most effective magickal means of restoring or achieving good health, using spells, rituals, affirmations,

visualizations, herbs, talismans and amulets, and runes.

Together, these information-packed volumes provide a diverse, extensive look at four types of modern-day magick. Filled with diagrams, charts, and drawings, this enlightening series of guides is a must-have for anyone looking to enliven, enrich, and enchant their everyday existence.

Synopsis:

Provides coverage of four types of magick while explaining how to use strategic tools to integrate potentially beneficial Wiccan elements into a life, instructing readers on topics ranging from developing one's psychic abilities to promoting good health. By the best-selling author of Celtic Magic. Original.

Synopsis:

D. J. CONWAY is the author of numerous bestselling books on spirituality and magick, including Wicca: The Complete Craft and Celtic Magic. Conway was voted Best Wiccan and New Age author by the Pagan magazine Silver Chalice. She lives in Oregon.
