Advanced Witchcraft doesn't contain any “Wicca 101” information—it assumes that you're already familiar with the nuts and bolts of the Craft. Instead, this book challenges you to think critically about your beliefs and practices, what they mean to you, how they've changed, and where you're going. Along the way you'll also learn many techniques for intermediate and advanced Witches, including:
—Meeting your shadow
—Advanced warding and psychic self-defense
—Power animals, familiars, and shapeshifters
—Working the labyrinth and the maze
—Advanced tree spirituality
—Advanced augury and divination
—Magick and ritual using the fine arts of storytelling, dance, music, art, and drama
—The art of Wishcraft
—Spirits and lost souls
—Banishing and closing portals
—The healing arts
Travel to different times and eras, visit with departed loved ones, and explore different astral worlds, such as the faerie realm. On the astral plane, it's also possible to heal yourself and achieve improved health, send healing energy to others, receive direction from your spirit guides, and view your Akashic records, the astral record of each soul's past and future events.
Filling in the gaps often found in other Wiccan guides, this primer explains the basic tenets of Witchcraft, detailing Wiccan history, philosophy, common traditions, and modern-day ethics. Learn about cyclical time, Wiccan magick and festivals, and how to keep a Book of Shadows. Soon, you'll discover if Witchcraft is the right spiritual path for you and the next steps you can take in the learning process.
Tap into the mythic power of the Celtic goddesses, gods, heroes, and heroines to aid your spiritual quests and magickal goals.
Human and divine energies complement each other; when joined, they become a potent catalyst for true magick and change. Celtic Myth & Magick describes the energies of over 300 cross-referenced Celtic deities and heroic figures so you can quickly determine which one can best help you in attaining specific goals through magick—such as greater prosperity (Cernunnos), glowing health (Airmid), or a soul partner (Aengus MacOg).
This guidebook explains how to use creative Pagan ritual and pathworking to align yourself with the energy of these powerful archetypes. Undertake three magickal quests to the inner plane—where you’ll join forces with Cuchulain, Queen Maeve, and Merlin the Magician to bring their energies directly into your life. This inspiring, well-researched book is written especially for solitary Pagans who seek to expand the boundaries of their practice to form working partnerships with the divine.
