Book Description

2 July 2008
Purification, regeneration, transformation . . . the ocean has long been known for its extraordinary powers. Sandra Kynes invites you to explore the sea's mystical energies. This spiritual voyage can help you find balance in your life or guide you toward a "sea change" of your own. Sea Magic is for everyone. You don't have to live on the coast or follow any specific spiritual path to tap into the unique energy of the ocean. Kynes offers meditations and exercises to help you center yourself, explore emotions, and find your place in the vast web of life. Dive into inner worlds of imagination and creativity. Choose a sea fetch (totem animal) to take you on a shamanic journey. Build an altar to focus your intentions and learn the rhythms of the moon. From working with sea deities to divining with seashells, Sea Magic offers ample ways to enhance your life and open up to divine guidance.

As someone who has been focusing on the element of Water for the past few months, I found this book to be a wonderful read full of tips and ideas I had not come across before. There is a wealth of information, including lists of sea fetches, seashells, mythical sea creatures and sea deities from around the world. Though the extensive list of Deities may not contain much in-depth information, it gives you enough to pique your interest or make you want to research that particular deity further. The tips on Sea Centering (a Water version of Grounding and Centering) and divination using seashells were particularly interesting.
You don't need to live near the sea to be able to enjoy this book or put its practical aspects into practise, in fact I would suggest it would be a very good book to use if you don't live near the Sea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic! 5 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beautiful book, powerful guidelines for meditation. Anyone who feels the calling of the sea weather someone who is wise in the field of magic or not, will adore it. Simple guidelines to follow. There are too few books written on the subject of sea magic, I would have loved the book to contain more rituals, but there are enough. At the end of the day it is a wonderful book to help you expand your own ideas on the subject and urge us to ask questions. A lovely Chapter about sea deities, although I had hoped this chapter would have been longer as only a handful of deities are covered( to include them all would need at least a book or two alone!)
If you love being on the seashore gazing out across the water, if you feel that pull at the pit of your stomach through your very being...then you will love this book...if your just curious and wandering what it's all about it's light enough not to deep, and you will enjoy this book also.
All said and done, this book holds lots of information about shells, luna cycles, tides, deities, meditation and lots decide :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book to Recommend to Metaphysical Readers 16 Jun 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on
I have read numerous books about the magic and energy of the Ocean, however this book excells them all! Many cultures and societies throughout the world and history have had deep interests and developed good meditative and spiritual methods for connecting in with the ocean. The Author, Sandra Kynes, has done an excellent job in presenting both the theory and meditative techniques of working with nature's energy of the ocean. Sandra presents her material in a very rational, understandable way, that is easy to work with. I highly recommend her book to all such seekers of magic, mysticism, and spiritual healing. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Come down to the sea with me" 5 July 2008
By Rev. Donna M. Swindells - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book, "Sea Magic" is a book of knowledge especially appealing to those of us who believe Magic is not dead or forgotten, but still can be found. In or at the Sea, the Gods & Goddesses still wait to impart its magicable properties, to those of us seeking to find it, even and especially in this time of worry or distress. "Come down to the Sea" and believe magic and wonder still lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars I can almost smell low tide 18 Dec 2008
By W. Martin - Published on
I grew up on the East Coast spitting distance from the Long Island Sound. Until my move to Missouri in 2000, I had always lived within the reach, sound and smell of the ocean. So when I saw this book I got very excited. One of the things about living in the Mid West I have never been able to get used to was not having the sea close by.

Ms. Kynes has penned a thorough guide to connect with the mystical magic of the deep salt waters of the world. With chapters titled such things as "The Call of the Ocean" and "The Moon, Meditations and Everyday Life," she has shifted the shore inland to any one who hears the siren's song.

The chapters are broken down into manageable bits that include journaling exercises, meditations and facts and fiction about all things oceanic. Deities, mythological creatures, seashells and sea animals are all in this small but fact-filled book. And for those of us - like me - who are days away from the nearest seashore, she has included instructions for bringing the coast to our daily existences.

My only complaint about this book is the endless lists of correspondences or items without any break. It really is a personal preference, because I am sure some people find these things very useful, but for reading purposes, they can become tedious and dull. I'd love to see more anecdotal passages included in these sections to liven them up.

In the back matter are a couple of appendices (one for `mind mapping' and one for runes and ogham) and a bibliography for further study.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent beginning/intermediate guide 22 Jun 2009
By Kenaz Filan - Published on
Many books for beginners try to be all things for all readers. As a result, they wind up offering a smattering of information about lots of topics without providing enough knowledge to actually do anything. Sandra Kynes takes a different approach in her work. She gives in-depth but easy to follow instructions on a particular subject - creating altars, exploring feng shui, working with trees, or, in this case, Sea Magic.

Ms. Kynes is a thorough researcher: her compilation of sea deities and spirits draws from numerous traditions and her listing of various seashells will warm the heart of the most dedicated conch-collector. She's also a very clear writer, whose directions are simple and straightforward. Yet she never becomes boring or pedantic. (As an added bonus, she avoids the self-righteous moralizing which pervades many introductory magic books).

*Sea Magic* is excellent for beginners, and for those who have already grasped the basic concepts of magic and want to specialize in particular areas. While experienced mages may find this a bit elementary for their tastes, they won't find any eye-rolling fluffy silliness... a rare thing in today's Pagan marketplace! It's definitely worth a look, and if you love the ocean it may find a place in your library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book For Those For Whom The Ocean Calls 18 Jun 2012
By Chimera House - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For some, they worship the earth and land specifically and call her Mother Earth, but for some it is the ocean rather the land that seems to draw the most sense of wonder and feeling of something divine. That is how I have always felt. Mother Ocean, rather than Mother Earth, is where my reverence holds the most focus. Because of my beliefs I was drawn to this book being it is about bringing the ocean into ones spiritual life and worship just as other books are about bringing the land into ones spiritual life and worship.

Over all I really enjoyed this book. It's the first I have found and read about ocean-based spirituality really and I it seems these kinds of ocean-based pagan books to be rather few and far between. This perhaps makes me a bit biased as to the good of this book.

Much of this book talks about things readers who have read other neopagan books might not be too unfamiliar with to some degree; however, these thing are in a different context or focus of course then as they are usually in other works. Regardless of if someone is familiar with several common practices found in neopagan books or not, this book seemed to do a good job at explaining things well enough to keep both new readers and more experienced readers from being left out of sorts.

The books starts out talking about the premises of ocean-based spirituality and about some natural facts of the ocean and its cycles which was a really nice. The book has few nice ideas on how to change basic practices found in paganism things such as a grounding and centering techniques that uses the ocean rather than the land, and a breathing experience which focus on breathing in `ocean energy' which I found very nice. One of the chapters which I found rather helpful was about alters and tools as it talked about bringing elements of the ocean into ones sacred space. It also talked about divination with cowry shells which I found interesting.

After that was about seashells - what they look like, what they can be associated with, and their uses (similar to how crystals can be used but with seashells instead). The chapter was interesting and the idea of using seashells rather than crystals or herbs in ritual or on one's alter was a continued nice touch in being the ocean more into one's practice. Next, there was a chapter on totem animals specifically of the ocean and the idea of working with mythical sea creatures which I also enjoyed though like many books on totemism one of its draw-backs was that was more of a list and how to find one's aquatic totem and not as much on what to do once a totem is found. Finally the book finishes up with talking about being aware of the Moon and her phases considering how much the Moon has an effect on the ocean as well as a few ocean inspired mediations and other daily practices someone can being into their daily life.

I do recommend this book for the those interested in the ocean either as part of their spirituality alone or as a way to bring in more ocean based elements into one's spirituality. Actually having a resource for this kind of information was something I enjoyed. A well worth it buy for me indeed.
