Anyone can practice magic to improve their everyday lives. Practical Magic for Beginners is a straightforward introduction to magical practice for Christians, Pagans, Jews, atheists, and people of all religious traditions.

This comprehensive training course presents the foundations of spellcraft and ritual magic through short, simple exercises. Readers explore their energy and senses, and then move on to developing skills in extrasensory perception, divination, and introspection. Magical timing, magical processes, ritual space and tools, journaling, and dreamwork are explained and discussed in depth. This nondenominational guidebook also includes twenty rituals related to friendship, love, prosperity, health, and other common concerns.

All of us are shaped by many factors: genetic heritage, family structure, our generation, the culture in which we are raised, and how that culture views gender. As we move through the years our experiences also go into making us who we are. Magic gives us tools to cope with the challenges life presents, and like us, magic is shaped by many external factors. How do we keep magic moving forward in our current times? Brandy Williams, author of Practical Magic for Beginners and The Woman Magician, explains.

Magical practice involves new ways of seeing. In the course of performing a spell or ritual we will visualize the flow of energy. Learning to recognize what we see and how to visualize clearly helps rituals work toward the result we want. Just as we observe the world with sight, sound, and feeling, so do we represent the world to ourselves with images, sounds and words, and internal feelings....

The stories of Tolkien and Rowling (and the subsequent movies based upon them) have enchanted the idea of a magic wand for many of us. But exactly how does one make a magical wand, imbuing it with the proper energy? Alferian Gwydion MacLir, author of Wandlore: The Art of Crafting the Ultimate Magical Tool, discusses the art of crafting a powerful magical wand.

A person can choose a name based on qualities they possess and want to be rid of, like the woman with the prickly personality who calls herself “Porcupine.” Then, we’ll all know to stay clear of her when she’s starting to take aim with her quills. We can also choose names than can imbue the practitioner with...

For some time, back in the 1970s, I had been ordering items from an odd occult shop in Great Britain. I say “odd” because their catalog made rather quirky claims and had products that nobody else carried, often with the “warning” that only their products were “official” (whatever that meant!). One of the things they described in their catalog was something called Chaos Magic. Over time, I started...

Sometimes things happen in our lives that we don’t recover from, at least not right away. Heartbreak, abuse, loss of a loved one — these are all major traumas that we sometimes need to bury initially in order to make it through. But, as we all know, ...

Practical Magic for Beginners was an easy book to write because I have been teaching these exercises for so many years. I just imagined a new class sitting in front of me and started talking to them. What I love about teaching this material is that ...

Sarah is creating a healing pouch to give to a friend who has been ill with a respiratory infection as of late. In the tiny, blue, cotton drawstring bag she crumbles some dried cedar bark she took off a nearby tree and shiitake mushrooms from the store, along with a few chips of amethyst bought at the local New Age shop. She then gives this to her... read this article
