THE WICCAN’S DICTIONARY OF PROPHECY AND OMENS Divination—the art of obtaining knowledge of the future or of secret things—has played… an important role in ancient cultures and religions as well as in modern times. It was once a method of sacred communication with the spirit world and a way to determine the will of the gods by means of visions and predictions. In the present age, divination, including astrology, palmistry, and the I Ching, continues to be a popular method of looking into the future or past, as well as revealing that which was once unknown. In fact, a large number of our contemporary customs and superstitions are remnants of the once-powerful divinatory rituals of the ancient pagan religions. The Wiccan's Dictionary of Prophecy and Omens details over two hundred methods of divination, from those used in antiquity to those in use today. It traces the history of these practices and provides examples of nearly every known divinatory art. This is an essential resource for followers of today’s Wiccan lifestyle by modern Wiccan expert Gerina Dunwich.

In this experiential guide to the wisdom and practices of the Andean people and their sacred land, Vera Lopez and Linda Star Wolf take you on an intimate journey through the sacred sites, temples, and power places of Peru, including Machu Picchu, Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, Sacsayhuamán, Písac, Lake Titicaca, and more. They show how each of these powerful sites holds an ancient wisdom--an initiation left behind by the Inca--and they share initiatory rites and shamanic journeying practices to allow you to integrate and embody the wisdom of each sacred place. The authors explore the cosmology and core shamanic beliefs of the Andean people, including Pachamama, the Sacred Law of Reciprocity, the Serpent of Light, the Chakannah, and power animals such as condors, snakes, hummingbirds, and pumas. They examine healing practices and sacred plants of this tradition, including a look at the shamanic use of ayahuasca and San Pedro. Offering direct access to the gentle heart of wisdom found within the ancient shamanic land of Peru, the authors show how the Andean shamanic tradition offers an antidote to the modern epidemic of Soul Loss by connecting us back to our authentic self and the universal principles of love, reciprocity, and gratitude.

Broomsticks and cauldrons, familiars and spells: magic and witchcraft conjures a vivid picture in our modern-day imagination. While much of… our understanding is rooted in superstition and myth, the history of magic and witchcraft offers a window into the past. It illuminates the lives of ordinary people in the past and shines a light on the fascinating pop culture of the premodern world. Blowing away folkloric cobwebs, this enlightening new history dispels many of the misconceptions surrounding witchcraft and magic that we still hold today. From Ancient Greece and Rome through to the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era, historian Frances Timbers shines a light on the impact of Christianity and popular culture in the construction of the figure of the &‘witch&’. The development of demonology and ceremonial magic is brought together with the West&’s troubled past with magic and witchcraft to chart the birth of modern Wiccan and Neopagan movements in England and North America. Witchcraft is a metaphor for oppression in an age in which persecution is an everyday occurrence somewhere in the world. Fanaticism, intolerance, prejudice, authoritarianism, and religious and political ideologies are never attractive. Beware the witch hunter!

«Non siamo qui per dirigere i vostri passi, né per creare il vostro destino, ma per guidarvi, mostrarvi le scelte… che vi si offrono». È questo il messaggio di una guida di luce di nome Lucas, ed è questo il compito di questa raccolta. Come medium chiaroveggente e traghettatrice di anime, sono in grado di avvertire, vedere e ascoltare gli esseri allo stato di energia pura. Nel corso degli anni, ho raccolto i messaggi di anime erranti, di anime in evoluzione nella luce e di esseri di luce denominati anche angeli, arcangeli o maestri ascesi. Da molto tempo accarezzavo il sogno di trasformarli in un libro accessibile a tutti. Alcuni messaggi sono indirizzati a qualcuno in particolare, mentre non ho mai rintracciato i destinatari di altri. Il loro contenuto rimane universale, ed è per questo che li condivido con voi. Probabilmente uno di questi messaggi è indirizzato personalmente a voi. Il libro si divide in quattro parti. La prima contiene messaggi di defunti, la seconda quella di esseri di luce. Nella terza parte vi sono i miei testi relativi alla medianità e l’ultima parte contiene una canalizzazione completa, in occasione di un consulto con un cliente. Spero che questo libro rappresenti per voi un confronto con queste energie sottili, tanto quanto lo è stato per me. Aprite il vostro cuore e lasciatevi trasportare da questi messaggi, a volte commoventi e sconcertanti. Forse uno di questi messaggi è proprio per voi!

Tremblay Recopilación de canalizaciones Recopilación de canalizaciones del más allá «No estamos aquí para… imponer sus pasos, ni para crear su destino, sino para guiarlo, para mostrarle sus opciones available». Este es el mensaje de un guía de luz llamado Lucas. Y esa es la misión de esta recopilación.

Durante mucho tiempo soñaba con hacer una colección accessible pour todos. Ciertos mensajes están dirigidos a personas concretas, otros, nunca encontré a los destinatarios. Sus contenidos siguen siendo universales y es por esta razón que los comparto. Inclusif, tal vez alguno de estos mensajes esté dirigido personalmente a usted. El libro está dividido en cuatro partes. La primera contiene mensajes de los difuntos; la segunda a los seres de luz; la tercera parte presenta los textos que he escrito a propósito del espiritismo, y la tercera parte contiene unea canalización completea estando en consulta con un cliente. Espero que este libro le proporcione tanto como lo fue para mí intercambiar con estas energías sutiles. Abra su corazón y déjese transportar por estos mensajes a veces conmovedores y confusos. ¡Tal vez alguno de esos mensajes sea realmente para usted!

Harness the transformative power of night dreams, half-awake dreams, and daydreams for healing, manifestation, and insight • Examines the types… of dreams we have and how to remember and interpret them • Offers techniques for using night dreams and liminal dreams to improve our health and well-being and for manifesting our dreams in reality • Provides techniques for using daydreams for healing, insight, and creativity • Explains how dream techniques can be used to influence the behavior of people, things, and nature in the waking world Dreams can change our lives in profound and tangible ways. In this guide to mastering the art of dreaming, Serge Kahili King, Ph.D., explores techniques to harness the power of dreams for healing, transformation, and changing your experience of reality. Drawing on his analysis of more than 5,000 of his own dreams as well as those of students and clients from his almost 50 years of clinical work, King examines the types of night dreams we have, how to remember them better, how to make use of them to improve our health and well-being, and how to interpret them. He explores how dreams are understood in neuroscience and psychology, in Native American and Aboriginal cultures, in indigenous Senoi dream theory, and in India, Tibet, Hawaii, and Africa as well as ancient Egypt, Greece, and China. He examines the power of liminal dreams--those experienced in the half-awake state before or after sleep--for manifestation and self-understanding. He offers techniques for enhancing the dream experience for both night dreams and liminal dreams, along with practical methods to induce lucid (conscious) dreaming and to create healing thoughtforms. King then explores daydreams in depth, including fantasy, guided imagery, meditation, visions, and remote viewing and provides techniques for using daydreams for healing, insight, and creativity. He divides daydreaming into two categories, defining &“active daydreaming&” as the scripted dream in which you envision a goal happening and &“passive daydreaming&” as allowing ideas and memories to arise spontaneously from the depths of the mind. Reflecting on how dreamlike our daily experience is, King shows that each of us can use dreams as tools for seeing the world differently and influencing the behavior of people, things, and nature.
