By LunicornMagical Unicorn Meditations

This enchanting CD takes the listener on a magical journey to meet their unicorn. Meditation 1 takes you to visit the Ribbon Tree, where you can attach your very own wishes to the branches of the tree and then fly with your unicorn through the rainbow and all its colours. You start with deep breathing before journeying to the beach of an ocean and you finish back at the same ocean to wriggle your fingers and toes before opening your eyes again.

Meditation 2 flies you with your unicorn to visit the Wishing Lake in the sky, where you place your hopes and wishes in a sailboat and allow the fairies to guide it across the lake. Surrounded by fairies and greeted by the Queen of this land in the sky, you are left feeling warm and safe. You return to the magical glade from which the journey began and then again wriggle fingers and toes and open your eyes.

The music is a relaxing background accompaniment to the soothing voice and the whole experience is a delight for every child, outer and inner.

 by Dr Silvia HartmannMagic, Spells & Potions

This is a bright, fresh, joyful and practical guide to magic, perfect for the 21st Century. When I first picked this book up I expected it to be full of spells, a recipe book for witches if you like. I could not have been more wrong. Starfields introduces the ways of using magic in connection with the guides and angels we may already be working with in a fun and constructive way. You are given practical steps in which to gather the tools needed for any particular ritual. It is made very clear how using magic in everyday life you are able to help yourself and others with this very powerful tool.

I found this book both informative and inspirational from the first to the last page. If your idea of magic is a toothless, warty hag sitting with a cauldron conjuring up all manner of things and using questionable ingredients to do it, think again. I have learnt from reading this book that magic is a very powerful accessory to have at your disposal – it is fun, and can give very valuable help to those who ask for it.

If you are looking for a way of solving problems in your life, or the life of someone you know, get this book and follow the steps Starfields gives you. You never know it may just work.

“Discover the magical properties and mystical uses of nearly 300 herbs, flowers,and other plants -many of which you can find right outside your back door.”

A wonderful book and reference tool for so many plants. Such clarity is given in the description of each plant with its magical and medicinal uses, and each one beautifully enhanced by coloured photographs. Susan really portrays her expertise and precise knowledge on every page. Highly recommended to enhance any bookshelf.

by Rae Beth

The back cover reminds us that “village wisewomen and men, the community’s witches, have always helped to heal wounded lives.”  It goes to state that “when disaster strikes, or when we’re struggling through things such as divorce or family conflict, today’s hedge witchcraft can still give the means to help ourselves and others … What is presented here is not superficial and not a shortcut.  Rather, it is a powerful process, a method which can be adapted to any situation where help may be needed.”

This book is not for the experienced practitioner, but Rae Beth has produced an excellent volume that begins from the very basic concepts of ethical magic working, with light and easily comprehensible explanations of the reasons behind them.  She believes that the Universe holds everything we need to live healthy, happy and abundant lives, and gives both the general rules of spellcraft and some practical ideas to help improve lives.  Ideas include a heal-anything spell, a spell for psychic protection, and a spell for healing trauma, and she also details the principles around which anyone can build a spell of their own.  The book includes an appendix of magical correspondences to help in building your own spells or adapting hers.  I would recommend reading the whole book before starting to practise spellcraft, as words of wisdom are scattered throughout.

The only place where a “spiritual” paradigm would part company with Rae Beth is when she states that she does not believe that we attract everything that occurs in our lives.  However, she does advocate a very gentle form of “white” witchcraft, and shapes her spells to avoid harming anyone. She even asks that if the fault is her own, then the spell should work on herself, as well as or instead of the other. Also included throughout are the ethics of spellcraft.  In a nutshell, the Wiccan Rede applies – “an it harm none, do what you will” – but she expands on this to show how easy it is to unwittingly harm someone.  Doing so, as every witch worth her faery companion knows, can result in the spell rebounding on you – possibly even threefold.

by Marie BruceThe Wiccan Temptress

This is a book full of fun and good humour, with a serious message underneath.  Marie Bruce has written a wonderful guide to help women discover (or rediscover) their true womanhood and sexuality, and how to deal with beginning and maintaining relationships, whether they be long-term or just a fling.  All aspects of being a temptress are covered here – clothes, grooming, home décor and interpersonal skills.  But beneath all the advice on how to become a sexy goddess, there is a fundamental point that a woman’s most important attribute is self-respect, and respect for others.  Throughout the book there are tips and techniques, as well as spells, blessings and magical recipes.  But this is not just a book for women – any men out there who wonder what makes women tick could do worse than peruse these pages!  Great fun.
