Book Description

30 Mar 2013
For our ancestors the whole world was alive with spirits. The Gods bubbled forth from rivers and springs and whispered in the breezes that rustled through cities and farms. The ground underfoot, the stones, the fire that cooked the food and drove off the darkness, these all had spirits - not just spirits in some other dimension, but spirits in them who could be spoken to and allied with. In today's world we are led to believe that the spirits long ago went silent and that spiritual wisdom can only be gained through established religious doctrine.

Providing a guide for opening two-way conversation with the spirits of daily life as well as direct communication with the gods, Kenaz Filan and Raven Kaldera explore how to enrich your spiritual path with personal gnosis asking your guides for assistance or teachings and receiving a response. They explain how to develop your sensitivity to the voices of the Divine, discern genuine spiritual messages from the projection of internal psychodrama and what to do (and not do) with the messages you receive. Offering practices and principles for seekers and groups, they reveal that the spirits never went silent, we simply forgot how to hear them.

Confirming their own personal gnosis with Northern Tradition Pagan beliefs and Greco-Roman, Celtic, Egyptian and indigenous hunter-gatherer lore, the authors discuss how to avoid theological conflicts when someone's personal gnosis differs from that of their Pagan group as well as how to authenticate messages with individual and group divination.

Offers practices for seekers and groups to learn to hear and respond to the spirits and the gods as well as what to do (and not do) if you receive a message

Explains how to authenticate spiritual messages with divination

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and Thought-Provoking 12 Mar 2013
By Harmonyfb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A practical look at how personal gnosis (through intuition, visions, etc) is approached by the religions which fall under the modern Pagan umbrella. I found the quotes from representatives of different faiths to be of particular value, giving a well-rounded sketch of attitudes toward incorporation of personal knowing in community work.

Thoughtful and well-written; I hope to see more interfaith work in this vein.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 29 Jun 2013
By Hannah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the personal quotes from different pagans and the thoughtful insight on personal gnosis. There is some good information on how to weed out true gnosis from ego and a really great chapter on mental illness and how some practitioners deal with both. Full of good recommendations on dealing with personal messages and messages that may be meant for others.
4.0 out of 5 stars Reasoned and thought-provoking. 30 Sep 2013

A necessary and timely reflection on individual experience of the gods and their messages to humanity through the lens of experienced religious leaders. Talking to the Spirits should be required reading for anyone who wants to be considered a priest, pastor, rabbi, or minister... regardless of their faith.

2.0 out of 5 stars I do not like that a good portion of their advice advocates so ... 13 July 2014
By Bianca C. Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have real issues with how they handle the advice on how to deal with UPG or Talking to spirits, when you are on medication. At no point, should advice ever be, go to someone else(which is a majority of what they say) and have divination done. Del and the other lady, they quoted gave decent advice.

Most of what they wrote if you dug on the internet you could have found. I have not really found anything new in this book. I do not like that a good portion of their advice advocates so much group work.

I cannot recommend this book. It was okay in a way but not what I was looking for. It was boring.
