Author Of Unicorn Magic

An Interview with Tess Whitehurst

1. You've written a number of books, including Magical Housekeeping and You Are Magical. What inspired you to write your latest book, Unicorn Magic?

I have to say the process of writing came straight from the Unicorn realm. It was actually an astounding experience. I'm not sure if I would call it channeling, but I might! It was a dream-like process of letting pure, high-vibrational wisdom and information flow through my consciousness and keyboard and straight into the book. And the vocabulary was markedly different than my own! Even when I write articles or appear on podcasts and tap into the wisdom of the unicorn realm, my speech becomes somewhat more intricate, formal, and picturesque. I'm convinced the unicorns are communicating through me. It's fascinating! I love it.

2. How exactly would you define "unicorn magic?"

Unicorn magic is tapping into the pure, harmonizing, healing current of unicorn consciousness in order to create positive change for ourselves and our world. You can do this in many ways: through meditation, visualization, intention, spending conscious time in nature, and even through conscious magical workings such as rituals and spells.

3. Why do you think the unicorn trend is so popular right now?

When most people think of unicorns, they think of glitter, stuffed toys, and birthday cake. But when you look at the symbolism of unicorns throughout the ages in both east and west, there is a lot more to the story. In the Middle Ages, it was believed that unicorn horns could purify any poison and transform even the most fetid swamp into pure and sweet drinking water. Unicorns have also been aligned with purity of heart, alchemy, magic, fierce courage, pristine nature, and freedom from oppressors. It seems pretty clear that the unicorn archetype is surfacing in our collective consciousness right now because we are craving fresh air, clean oceans, a healthy planet, and the courage to fight for these things until we've healed the imbalances in our world and secured a bright future for generations to come.

4. Can anyone use the exercises and information in your book, or is prior knowledge required?

Anyone who is drawn to the realm of unicorns will naturally have access to all the power they need to tap into the exercises and information in my book. I predict readers will find it more of a process of remembering what they already know than a process of adding anything new to their spiritual repertoire. If unicorns have been calling to you, you're more than ready to begin this journey and to do this magical work.

5. What do you hope readers will take away from Unicorn Magic?

A sense of wonder. Harmonious balance and inner wholeness. Pure, clear, and positive personal energy. Trust in their ability to heal themselves, mind, body, and spirit, and also to bring greater healing to the planet. Devotion to beauty as a spiritual path. Feeling awake to the magic of life. Attunement to the power of the entire natural world. The courage to step out of their comfort zones and to live their dreams. Strong intuitive knowing. And complete freedom throughout their lives, in every sense of the word.
