Crystals for Beginners by Karen Frazier

51o8JEGCYtL._SX351_BO1,204,203,200_I am no “beginner” when it comes to using crystals for healing. I am also one of those wonderful people who believe you can never have too many crystals, nor too many crystal books. Crystals for Beginners is a welcome addition to my collection.

Not a comprehensive guide to crystals and their attributes like the many volumes of The Crystal Bible, Crystals for Beginners is an introduction to using crystals which looks at some of the most commonly used stones you’ll find in people’s collection.

With vivid colors, this book is pleasing to the eyes. From keeping your crystals cleansed and charged to using crystal grids, the basics are covered. There is a section on colors, helping you understand how crystal color works with healing and magic workings.

The ‘Crystal prescriptions’ section is what really makes this book stand out, and is the reason it’s staying in my collection. This section breaks down your issue (stress, abuse, illness) and gives you a mantra, meditation tips, and/or a crystal grid to help you use your healing crystals to their full advantage.

Beginner or not, I highly recommend this book!

I got it for free from the publisher, but this review contains my honest feelings.

The Door to Witchcraft by Tonya A. Brown

41uoi0cuo3L._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_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).

Everyday Crystal Rituals By Naha Armady

41MaKAEGDvLThis book… If you already use crystals or you’ve only been thinking about using them to better your life, this book will be a much-loved addition to your collection. I love it, and I have been through it twice so far.

Everyday Crystals Rituals is put together in a way that makes it easy to follow. It has the colorful stone photos you’d expect from a book about crystals. This helps you with identifying the crystals in your collection (because we all know after the first dozen you start to forget the names of some of them).

This book will help you with your love life, self-love, wealth, your career, and it will even help you enjoy your home life more. The book is detailed when it comes to each and every ritual. You won’t be confused, even if you’re a beginner in the fine art of crystal healing. You don’t have to be witchy, you just have to want to live a better life.

 

I received this book for free from the publisher for this honest and unbiased review.
