There is a book that inspired me a lot and helped me to understand the forces we are playing with when we are performing magic. It's "Light over the realm" from Alexandre Moryason.
The aim of my researchs is not to get power but change the quality of my personal energy, the energy of the heart, it can be long. This book can help.

Very good point, How is your research comming btw? Have you any other books you would reccomend???

I didn't realize this thread was here until just now! Thanks you guys, for the recommendations. I've read some of them already, but found some others that sound interesting, and I'll add them to my list.

I was actually looking for the old thread of Book Recommendations for Nikki (Vettegal) when I found this. Glad I've gone hunting! laugh.gif

If you are looking for books on Wicca Janet and Stewart Farrar write good books. I do not practice Wicca m'self but, they are very informative, and follow the Alexandrian sect of Wicca (Alex Sanders). Most books that are out there today follow Jerald Gardners methods.
( gardanerian sp)

Patrica ( Trish) Telesco writes well too.

Hey Bardy, are they the ones who wrote "The Witches Bible" ? Those names sound very familiar.

Yes, they are the authors of the 'Witches Bible'. Which is actually a compilation of several of thier books.
In your reading, if you have also read Bucklands guide to Witchcraft, you will notice the differences between Alexandrian, and Gardenirian systems....

I think he really knew what he was doing, but there are things he messed with that I wouldn't have messed with.

Hi Rider! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back here. I feel like I've missed a lot! How are things with you?

I haven't read as many books on this subject as I'd like, by a long shot, but so far my favorites are "Drawing Down The Moon"(Margot Adler) because it gives such a large overview of the many different (mostly Wiccan) Paths, explained well for someone who may be just beginning and unsure where to start. She's very informative about the backgrounds of the better known groups, too, and that's helpful. I've really enjoyed reading Scott Cunningham's "Guide For the Solitary Practitioner" and "Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs". He's easy to read, very informative, seems open-minded and well-balanced, and honest. I felt as if a friend were just talking to me about things, rather than as if I were being lectured to! Ann Moura's "Green Witchcraft" I and II were good, maybe not as friendly, but written by someone who doesn't necessarily practise the religious aspects of the Craft (as she calls it), and I found that seperation intriguing--I'm still thinking that one over. I know that "The Mists of Avalon" series is mostly pure fiction, and has very little to do with real Wicca/Paganism, but I list it anyway because it's so different from the usual slant that it makes you stop and really think about the truthfulness of our Christian history. It's led me to other books that deal with the rise of Christianity, the melding/incorporating of Pagan beliefs,ceremonies,holidays,etc...and for that I'm thankful. "Mists" is so well written-it's very believable! Even my hubby said that when he watched the t.v. Movie version of it with me! (He's never read the books.)

I'm still reading, still looking for new ones to read, keeping my eyes open, and trying to reconcile all this new (for me!) insight with what I've always believed in my heart. I'm finding that very hard at times, but I'm trying. I'm very grateful to all of you for being ready to share ideologies, and for being so understanding.

Dreamer,
Your not the only one going through the change, I am still going through it but, I can not imagine being anything but kind and understanding to those who are seeking Truth & Knowledge. I am so happy you joined in on this subject thank you so much for your wonderful post. the information you left is very very valuable.
I will have to get a copy of Drawing down the Moon, I went to the bookstore to get it and left there with 6 other books and not that one! how weird is that?


What is everyones opinions of L.Ron Hubbard?? I just picked up his book "What is Scientology" for $5 bucks and thought I would give it a whirl.

Has anyone read his stuff??? What did you think about it?

what are the PRO's ?

Do you see any serious CON's??

oh is that silver ravenwolf girl the one with all the books that are like 'love spells for teens' and pooh and the covers are all...non...natural looking. Hhaha, yea, that's just a given to stay away from anything that gives you step-by-step spells to get very specific things. It just doesn't work that way.

Anyway, mentioned in another thread, but anything by Edain McCoy is good.
