One of the things I really enjoy in a book is practicality. I want something that applies to me. And Everyday Magic does exactly that. It applies to me, and you, today and every day.
Instead of conjuring an image of Shakespeare's "Double, double, toil and trouble," women stirring a cauldron, Dorothy Morrison's modern Wiccan methods use a drip coffee maker and a slow cooker. Instead of preventing an attack on a castle, this book has chants to make sure your scanner and printer work properly. This is a book of magic for today!
Because our days are so filled with things we have to do, we are all short of one precious commodity: time. So the spells, rituals, exercises and methods here are quick to do. For example, if you need to alleviate fear, simply write down your fears on a piece of paper. Then tear up the paper and put the scraps in a fire-proof dish. Sprinkle Mars incense (the formula -- and how to make it -- is given, of course) on top of the scraps and light it. After it is burnt out, flush the ashes down the toilet. Simple. Easy. Done with everyday objects. But it is also very powerful!
No matter what your level of magical practice, you're going to find this book is very helpful to you. The methods for using modern tools alone will have you wondering why you didn't use them before. The magical methods of dealing with modern life will have you smiling and running out to try them right away!
Many people say that Wicca is very old. But it is also new and fresh and young -- and capable dealing with any difficulties that may arise in your life. This book is proof of that. Why not get a copy and discover it for yourself?
