I’m 100% sure my Hogwarts letter got lost in the post… Either that, or I’m just a Muggle obsessed with the occult.
In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to share some Witchy-themed books from my ever-growing book shelf:
1. ‘Wiccapedia: A Modern-Day White Witch’s Guide’ by Shawn Robbins & Leanna Greenaway.
I spotted this book in a tiny corner of Waterstones labelled ‘Spiritual’. After initially laughing at the title, I flicked through and realised its potential.
From what I understand, White Witches follow Wicca, a branch of Paganism. They practise magic for altruistic purposes, for good. I’m not Pagan, but I love this book because it talks about the different forms of magic and all the necessary ingredients required to conjure it.
With spell casting aside, I find it useful in understanding the benefits of different crystals and herbs. I like learning how we can use the Earth’s natural powers in our daily lives and the possibility of solving problems through nature.
There’s also a section on dream meanings.
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know I have the w e i r d e s t dreams and deciphering them is insightful to say the least…
