I try never to disparage the metaphysical, magickal, or spiritual books I encounter. Even the ones that are wildly inaccurate with their facts or that seem to me to be poorly written. I know in my own experience that it has sometimes been some small thing, a sentence or an image, in or out of context, that has led me to a realization or to wisdom. I try not to deny anyone else that transformative moment/experience.
For a long time now I have been hungering for some new words about Magick and Witchcraft and the Gods, and found them in T. Thorn Coyle’s excellent book Evolutionary Witchcraft. Reading about a Witchcraft at once very different and yet, from my readings about and by members of Reclaiming, strangely familiar; it has been invigorating.
I haven’t done many of the exercises, not sure if I will. But reading of them, and of the discussions of the importance of movement, and stillness, and breath. It has reminded me of so many things I had set aside until later… or of things that I always said I would learn more about someday…
Well, someday is now!
In writing to thank T. Thorn Coyle for her book, I realized that it’s been 9 months since I started this blog and this journey towards spiritual renewal and a rekindling of my magickal and Witchy self.
I don’t imagine that this journey is over… heck it’s barely just begun; and yet I do feel renewed on some deep and powerful level.
Peace, and Blessed Be!
