In this authoritative study, the authors discuss the principles underlying all spells and explain why a successful spell is usually composed of three elements: intent, visualization, and will-power. Careful at all times to observe basic rules of responsibility that a spell should never intend anyone harm or manipulate anyone against their will this is a comprehensive guide to ways of effective spell-casting. This book covers all aspects of spells including psychic self-defense, sex magic, qabalistic magic, and talismans. There is a generous anthology of actual spells worldwide, past and present, drawn from history, literature, folklore, old grimoires, and from the 20 years experience of the authors. Spells of love, healing, weather, binding, and more combine in this unique addition to the literature on magical workings.
Well, this was a pretty cute little book, but I ended up giving to a kid that I know who is interested in magic. There was more folk lore than technique, but it was fun to read. Lots of old little penny-anny spells. There was a few things that made me stop and think, and over all it was pleasant and interesting to read. Not a hard hitter though.
