The Permission You Seek Has Arrived!


Have you ever read a magical working that someone else wrote and thought, "I could do better than this"? Have you ever felt belittled by "all-knowing occultists" who dare you to defy their instructions or rework their magic? Have you ever wondered if you were "good enough", "smart enough" or "experienced enough" to create your own working, or even an entire magical system?

If you've answered "yes" or even "maybe a little" to any of these questions, this book may be written precisely for you.

Magic by Design: How to create your own practical magic workings that get results (How Magic Works Book 5)
by Taylor Ellwood

Within this concise volume is the permission you seek, along with some basic guidelines, for modifying and creating rituals that have meaning for you. There's no guarantee that your rituals will work, yet neither are there dire warnings that your rituals won't work.

It's really up to you, according to Taylor Ellwood, an author who encourages you to be yourself instead of dutifully copying something that may not entirely resonate with you. You'll find a number of topics, along with some honest examples from Taylor's sometimes very personal experiences, as well as exercises that may provide some impetus for deeper thought.

Aside from a few grammatical mishaps here and there, this book is very well written and easy to understand. I received a copy of the book in return for this review.
