The Dominion of Dreams, Under the Dark Star
The Dominion of Dreams, Under the Dark Star
by F Macleod
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a strange book, published in 1910, ..., 24 July 2014
This is a strange book, published in 1910, but I found it very enjoyable. It is a collection of folk stories from the Hebrides and was written by 'Fiona Macleod' a.k.a William Sharp.

It brings to life the old beliefs of these islands - caught between Christianity and a belief in faeries, many other non-physical happenings and pagan customs. There is much gloom in it - it seems that many people are found 'the next morning' on a rock or in the heather never to be roused again.

I read it after enjoying 'Hebridean Altars' by Alistair Maclean. Also because it contains the poem which contains the line 'Deep peace of the running wave to you...' whereby the Amadan or fool is healed.

Yes, these shoes are just lovely! They are very comfortable and the colour is so pretty. I would buy El Naturalista again - when I can afford them.

I thought this would tell me how to DO Reiki - but no, It is all about when and how to do Reiki and is written for Reiki practitioners.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story, 30 Mar 2014

This is a story spanning several centuries - all about a man who discovers chocolate and love and how he develops the chocolate and re-finds his love. Try Runcie's other book 'The Colour of Heaven' which is also good.


The Silver Bough: 1 (Canongate Classics)
The Silver Bough: 1 (Canongate Classics)
by Florence Marian McNeill
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful folk history, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book about the old folk tales, legends and myths of Scotland; written in 1956 - 7. It appears under various headings, such as 'The Druids', 'The Gods', 'Magic', 'Fairies'. There were many words that, as a non-Scots and non-Gaelic speaker I didn't understand - all of which seemed to add to its mystery. I enjoyed it immensely and shall keep it for reference beside Frazer's
'The Golden Bough'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointing, 5 Sep 2013

This is a book based on the channelled teachings of White Eagle. It is fairly helpful, but I don't feel it is quite up-to-date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, 5 Sep 2013

This is a helpful and readable book, especially if you are new to channelled material. There is a great deal to take in - you will probably need to re-read it more than once.
