There are alot of good books out there, but becareful as well. A lot of the authors publish stuff, just for the sake of getting their name on a cover. Use your judgement and go from there. When I started into the occult 13 years ago, I started off with Silver Ravenwolf’s books. Her soiltary Witch: Book of Shadows, I still go back to use for referance. Also Phyllis Currott, Edain McCoy, Gerina Dunwhich, and Power Spellcraft for Life by Arin Murphey-Hiscock would be a good start. Also Gerald Gardners got a few good one out there if you want… Read more »

The bible tells us to stay away from things like fortune tellers,ouija boards, magicians, all that occult stuff. There really are evil spirits roaming the earth looking for someone to possess. When you get involved in those things, that’s exactly what you are doing. I know this from first hand experience. My sister used to do ‘automatic writing’ (going into a trance and letting a so called spirit write, through her). She always got what appeared to be intelligent information on the paper, but we did prove it to be a bunch of lies. Those evil spirits can be so… Read more »

study read a lot and look into as much as you can take things in with a open mind but realize that not everything you read is going to be true so take notes and compare…be wary of the fluffy side and all the glitter for most of it is untrue, and don’t listen to the ones that down things…if its for you you will be drawn to it if not then so be it and you will find your way but don’t let anybody tell you what your way is find it on your own be it magic, nature,… Read more »

The best thing to do first and formost is get back in touch with the earth. weather it be walking through the forest or riding a horse. meditate with the suroundings of the mother. there you will find the truth in what you can do. she will not seek you out, you must find her.

If magic worked in some reliable, predictable fashion, and casting spells was like preparing recipies… materialistic science would have mapped out the supposedly mystical centuries ago and they’d offer courses in it at mainstream universities.

Best case scenario, magic is imaginary.

In the extremely unlikely case it really exists, it’s obviously not something that can be controlled.

I would NOT do that, if I were you. Please read John 3:16 in the Bible.

I’d recommend giving Christianity a chance…I’ll guarantee you that if you live by what the Bible says…you’ll have the best life ever because Jesus came so that we can have life and have it to the fullest.

A lot of people think Christianity is a bunch of rules that “hinder” us from fun. Christianity is all about a relationship with Jesus that in the end brings us great joy and true life!
