You ever fall behind at life? I did. That’s why you haven’t seen many posts from me. It seems like everything took its own self-piloted path, and that path missed the stack of review books waiting for my attention (and growing almost weekly). I’m back on the right track, so I am also back at sharing some great books with you. Since I’ve recently launched my own witchy related business, The Art Of Dreams And Divination, I decided the best place to start with this stack of books would be a witchy one.
As someone who has been studying and practicing witchcraft since I was 13 (to give you an idea of the span of time, I’m 44 now), I was really looking forward to checking out The Door To Witchcraft. It’s subtitled “A New Witch’s Guide,” but don’t let that keep you away from checking it out even if you’re experienced—I found it to be a great reminder of some of the “basics” I’ve forgotten over the years.
Not only does this book touch base on the history and traditions of witchcraft, but it offers a great jumping point to start learning more about things like color magic, herbology, and more. You won’t get all of the knowledge in this one little book, but it will help you decide which witchy path (or paths) you want to pursue more info through.
I love this book, and it has found a permanent home in my personal library. What I liked about it is that the layout is perfect—everything goes in the order you’d expect it to, ending with spells and spiritual work you can do to help you get started on your own witchy path.
As a divination addict, I was thrilled with the fact that Brown made sure to talk about that aspect of witchcraft as well. I feel like a lot of general info books like this focus only on ritual and spells and miss on all of the other aspects of witchcraft, Paganism, Wicca, and spirituality that a lot of us live by.
So, I need to let you know that I got this book for free from the publisher for this unbiased review (Honestly, this is a great book).
