This charming book is a guide to using the powers of the human psyche as regards the deeper instinctive and intuitive nature. That is what Magic(k) really is - applying the powers of the human mind. In all esoteric traditions, this force is harnessed via the meditative state (where the conscious and the subconscious meet) and includes visualization, creating energy and directing that energy towards a goal.
Often relating her own experiences, the author explores mediumship, feng shui, crystals, the chakra system, the aura and spiritual healing. Each chapter ends with an exercise that includes affirmations relating to the subject. Crowley has a down-to-earth style and writes from a psychological perspective so her book is mercifully free of clichés or psychobabble.
She also deals with intuition, dreams, divination, tarot, wands, astrology and planetary magic, incenses and oils and cultivating a prosperity consciousness. As a Wiccan, the author explains the importance of the seasonal changes and the wiccan holy days, an interesting argument but not of particular importance to her overall message of self-development.
The book contains plenty of black and white illustrations, tables of correspondences, a bibliography and an index. Although I am not into paganism, I find this book full of common sense and sound psychology, and the author's style to be intelligent and inspiring. A book of wise advice for self-improvement that will help you put some magic into your life.
