Magic is Alive! And The Goddess is Afoot

Even if you don't practice them, you're probably familiar with the concepts of high magic and low magic. Michelle Skye's new book, Goddess Afoot!, forges a new magical pathway between the two. Written in the same warm, practical style as her popular Goddess Alive!, it helps you contact the Divine, in a similar fashion to high magic, while creating life-enhancing changes here on Earth, like low magic.

Goddess Afoot! is the only book to combine meditations, scholarly research, and spellwork as a means of establishing an intimate connection with the Goddess and to help you better your life and find your inner truth and inner self. Each of the book's twelve chapters starts with a goddess from the Norse or Celtic pantheons, and presents her myths, a pathworking, a guided meditation, an invocation, and three magical activities or crafts. The result is practical enhancement to your life as you draw closer to the Goddess.

• Find your magical name with Arianrhod, Welsh goddess of the stars
• Enhance your healing abilities with the Irish goddess Airmid
• Increase your psychic power with the Norse goddess Frigga
• Sif, Norse goddess of family and harvest, helps you manifest abundance
• Activate the warrior within with Skadi, Norse warrior goddess

Working with the seven other goddesses in this book will help you learn to accept your shadow self, gain balance in your life, recognize your inner strength, and more. The book's introduction explores different types of magic, from candle magic to herbal magic to written word magic. It also clarifies the differences between high and low magic and the goddess magic you'll find revealed in Goddess Afoot!

How it Works
Unlike other forms of magic, the role of each individual goddess is paramount in Goddess Afoot!, connecting you to the Otherworldly Realms. The goddess forms the conduit by which you can harness the energy of the Divine to manifest your goals.

But this book is more than just Otherworldly contact with the goddesses. It provides the means—through magic, meditation, and self-reflection—to forge the life of your desires. For a moment, just imagine achieving all of your goals. Imagine how you will feel when all of the abundance, happiness, and love that you desire is actually yours. This is the book that shows you how to achieve all you want with the help of the spellwork, magic, and the Goddess.

This book is ideal to use by yourself or in groups such as in covens or workshops. Perfect for newcomers and advanced practitioners alike, and reveals paths to inspiration and personal empowerment. It will propel you to greater heights of understanding of the self and create an inner knowledge that will translate into outer success. If the exercises, meditations, and spells are done consciously and with purpose, your life will begin to bloom and flourish in ways you never thought possible.

The Excitement is Rising
Calm, gentle, and presented with an open heart, you will find an incredible inner excitement as your work with each of the twelve goddesses in this book brings you closer to the Divine. Perfect by itself or as a continuation of Goddess Alive!, each new exercise you practice, each meditation you perform, each spell you do will further that excitement. You'll want to do more, and by connecting to the goddesses they will show you how you can do more.

This is the book that brings it all together. Everything you've learned up to now and everything you add to it from this book will combine in a new way, making all of your magic and all aspects of your mundane life unite to make you a powerful force for yourself, your friends, and your family. No matter how many other books on magic you've studied, no matter how many books about the Goddess you've read, this is the one book you must get to bring it all together and make a difference in your life.

Spring is a busy time for the hearth witch. It is time to prepare the ground, plant seeds, and gather the early flowers and greenery of the year for food, remedies, and magical use. As I look around, the woodland and hedgerow trees are hazed with green as the leaves begin to unfurl. The fields are scattered with a blaze of yellow flowers at this... read this article
