A guide to mystical and magical energies|
Real Energy: Systems, Spirits, and Substances to Heal, Change, and Grow
Author: Phaedra and Isaac Bonewits [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: New Page
Category: New Age / Occult Level: All
Energy. Psi, prana, mana, chi, divine power, the tao, reiki, or “vibes, ” every system of magic and mysticism calls the energies that power its practices by different names. Whether questioning the power of prayer or a healing session with a Reiki master an underlying question exists of whether this energy is all the same or if they exist as distinctly different “wavelengths” of some universal power?
When New Agers, occultists, spiritual healers, metaphysicians, artists, and Neopagans talk about the “energies” they use, what do they actually mean? Now, for the first time, a single book discusses the vocabulary, magic, metaphysics, art, and science of energy from a multi-model, 21st century perspective.
Isaac and Phaedra join their sixty-five years of magical experience to produce a unique work. Lessons included will cover the physical vocabulary of energy, the metaphysical vocabulary of energy, how the laws of magic affect energy, and the importance of focus.
Real Energy then takes these lessons to the next level giving you direction on how to understand and begin working with different energies. Half of the book is dedicated to showing you how to work with specific energies, including: the four elements, crystals, plants, animals, your own body, nature spirits, ancestors, and deities to accomplish your goals and enhance life experiences. Specific energy work practices are also covered, including: Reiki, The Huna System, working with “pure” ESP and PK, Feng Shui, and the Tantra System.
Christopher Penczak, author of The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft and Instant Magick, says:
"Real Energy has everything you could possibly want in a book about the metaphysics of energy—science, history, magic, mysticism, a multicultural perspective, humor, and most importantly, practical application. Highly recommended for anybody working with the nebulous worlds of energy, healing, and spirits."
Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, headmaster, Grey School of Wizardry, and author of the Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard, says:
"Real Energy brilliantly articulates the integral synthesis of science and magick we have been seeking since the dawn of the scientific revolution. Here is the foundation for a true 'meta-physics' involving living energies in a conscious cosmology paradigm."
Author's Notes: We had a lot of fun (and work!) writing this one! Quantum physics, feng shui, odic force, and bad Sherlock Holmes puns all mixed together to help us grow as writers during the process.
