The Complete Book of Spells, Ceremonies & Magic by Migene Gonzalez-Wippler is the most complete study of magic throughout the world ever published in one volume. Virtually every major culture, from the beginning of time to the present day, is surveyed, showing the similarities and differences found around the world.
This book is divided into three sections. The first is called "Theory" (although it goes far beyond that). You will learn what magic is and how it has evolved over time. You'll discover how the gods of various cultures influenced magic and how so many cultures include initiation in their magical systems.
This book describes the types of magic and the techniques that are used. You will discover the traditions of the four elements, the Kabbalah and its correspondences, and the astral plane. You'll learn about ceremonial magic and the classic grimoires of the occult, including the Keys of Solomon, The Sword of Moses, The Grimorium Verum, and many more. Instructions for using these books and methods are included.
You'll also discover how to make and use talismans, the secrets of possession, the history of Witchcraft and demonology and divinatory systems including palmistry, astrology, the Tarot and the I Ching.
Part Two is called "Practice." It presents magical rites from many different periods and from many cultures and countries, including: Persia and Babylon, Egypt, Arabia, Greece, Rome, India, China, Japan, Africa, Australia, Europe, Haiti, Latin America, Mexico, and North America. This section also reveals the secrets of fertility and weather control rituals from many cultures.
The third part of the book is called "Magical Spells." It offers twenty-five love spells from India, China, the Gypsies, Santeria, and from a book called TheGrand Grimoire. You'll also find spells for wealth and success, health and protection, and even to overcome enemies. The spells include a sexual seduction spell, a spell for a woman to win love, a spell against jealousy and one to stop infidelity. There is a spell to win a serious legal case, for luck in all forms of gambling and another for winning at dice. You will learn the secrets of separation powder and a divorce insurance spell. Also in the book are spells for losing weight, to bring rain, to heal, and for defeating a tobacco addiction.
