An Angelic Herbal Enchantment for Motivation
Date: 2009-12-16   By: Llewellyn
I designed this spell for myself when I was under the deadline gun to finish this very book. It was early December, and the completed manuscript was due in mid-February. My nerves were shot, as I was constantly interrupted by phone calls, errands, my kids coming home from college, decorating for Yule, and my other family commitments, not to
What is Gnosticism?
Date: 2009-12-31   By: Llewellyn
Gnosticism: (from Greek gnosis,” knowledge”) Any of a set of wildly diverse spiritual traditions that emerged in the ancient world around the beginning of the Common Era. Their exact origins are the subject of violent disputes among modern scholars, but Greek mystical traditions, Zoroastrian dualism from Persia, Jewish teachings, and early
Primordial Meditation: The Way, Truth, And Life
Date: 2009-12-31   By: Llewellyn
This practice is called primordial meditation because it unveils and reveals our bornless being and innate goodness, which is the very essence of enlightenment. In Kabbalah, the highest name of God is Eheieh, which means “I Am” or “I Shall Be,” and alludes to pure or primordial being. In many Christian Gnostic practices, the breath becomes the
What is Natural Magic?
Date: 2009-12-31   By: Llewellyn
Natural Magic: One of the two great divisions of Western magical practice, the other being ritual or ceremonial magic. Natural magic deals with the magical powers of physical substances—herbs, stones, resins, metals, perfumes, and the like. It has generally been much less controversial than ritual magic, and has been practiced openly even at
Healing Practice with the Five Breaths and the Elements
Date: 2010-02-05   By: Llewellyn
The Root Breath The root breath may be used to help conditions related to a fitful, speedy, dreamy, floating, or weak mind, or for individuals who may lack common sense, discipline, or clear and conscious direction. Coupled with working with the root breath, we may also seek out the earth element, drawing upon its stable grounding energy for
Cthulhu’s Spawn: The “Little” C
Date: 2010-02-05   By: Llewellyn
The spawn of Cthulhu—or as I like to call them, the Little C—are the brethren to Cthulhu, the difference being that their stature and powers are smaller when compared with the Big C. From Lovecraft’s writing it is not clear if they are the actual offspring of Cthulhu, but the word spawn communicates to the reader the watery existence of their
Gods, Spirits, Servitors, and Pests: A Taxonomy of Spirits
Date: 2010-02-05   By: Llewellyn
We may be the only self-aware physical beings on Earth (although, I’m not certain octopi wouldn’t give us a run for our money), but there are other places besides Earth. I’m not suggesting we discuss aliens, which may or may not exist and may or may not even visit Earth (although, I rather doubt it), but in a conversation on magic, it is crucial
Planetary Images
Date: 2010-02-09   By: Llewellyn
Below, you will find seven planetary image descriptions that were designed by the sixteenth-century magician Cornelius Agrippa to have the maximum possible impact on your unconscious mind and allow you to understand the planetary forces. Some of the images are familiar; others will strike you as strange. This is because they were in the language
Anglo-Saxon Futhorc
Date: 2010-02-09   By: Llewellyn
The runic alphabet of the Anglo-Saxon tribes, a coalition of Germanic peoples who invaded Britain in the fifth and sixth centuries of the Common Era and became the ancestors of the modern English. The Anglo-Saxon futhorc evolved out of the elder futhark by the addition of several new runes needed to express sounds not shared by other Germanic
Goddess Archetype Tarot Spread
Date: 2010-03-23   By: Llewellyn
This is a fun way of exploring the feminine archetypes in the Tarot, world mythology, and within yourself—regardless of your gender. I encourage you to do this spread even if you are still shy of interpreting the cards: the sooner you begin to get used to the process of reading, the sooner you will improve. If you have to use a book to give

My new book, Haunted Plantations of The South, has just hit the bookshelves. In the book, I share brief histories and ghost stories of nearly one hundred separate plantations throughout eight southern states. Some of the plantations are successful bed and breakfasts, while others have unfortunately been all but forgotten. However, with each story... read this article
