Angels for Beginners by Richard Webster

I got a copy from Llewellyn Worldwide and NetGalley but all opinions are my own.

As a person who is obsessed about learning about the occult/spiritual world, I was always fascinated about Angels. The problem was I didn’t understand how to connect with them or their different roles in human lives.

Then this book came along. I was legit happy. It explained so much to me, Like the “hierarchy” of the angels and what they do and what they usually look like. Most importantly, how to connect to them in every way and to ask them for help to deliver your prayers to God.

Here’s a book description:

“Welcome angels into your life with Angels for Beginners. Discover how to communicate with guardian angels and archangels as well as angels of healing and abundance. Join world-renowned author Richard Webster as he explores how angels have helped people throughout history, and shares simple ways we can apply those lessons in our own lives.

You don’t have to follow any particular spiritual path to connect to your divine guides. This book shows how angels work for people of different faiths and backgrounds all around the world. Sometimes angels come into our lives in unexpected ways; Angels for Beginners shares the signs and symbols angels use so you won’t miss their life-changing messages.”

Webster writes in a simplified way, but it doesn’t skimp on the information. So it was really easy to understand and to take notes. I love this Llewellyn series, I hope they continue it.

5 out 5 stars!!!


Spirit Conjuring for Witches: Magical Evocation Simplified by Frater Barrabbas

I was given a free copy by NetGalley and Llewellyn in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own.

WARNING: Not totally beginner friendly. There were terms that I had to look up for me to understand them properly, I needed to search for a lot of things even thought this book was well written. I know it said SIMPLIFIED but I felt lost in some parts.

“The greatest Witches of legend and folklore practiced their craft through spirit conjuration and employing a familiar spirit. Now, centuries later, this art, once the supposed proclivity of ceremonial magicians, can be acquired and mastered by Modern Witches using only the enhanced tools and methodologies that they already possess. Without having to invest a lot of time, money, and effort, the average Modern Witch can adopt certain practices and techniques to safely and competently perform invocations, evocations and travel the Spirit World like the Witches of legend.”

Barrabbas’s writing style is engaging and absolutely informative, but with a beginner like me, you can get lost with a whole lot of things. I had to constantly check my laptop for my notes while reading.

The book is written in like a textbook would be written but you know an interesting textbook.

3.5 stars out of 5 just because of all the note taking I had to do. haha

*also if you don’t like magic/spirits/witchcraft/etc.. Don’t read this.

The Little Big Book of White Spells by Ileana Abrev

I got a galley from NetGalley and Llewellyn Worldwide. My review is my own.

“The Little Big Book of White Spells combines Ileana Abrev’s four popular spell books in an attractive hardcover package. With more than 200 quick spells for love, money, protection, happiness, and more, this book is perfect for anyone who wants to improve the most cherished parts of life.

Create positive transformation in your relationships and a better world for your community with easy enchantments for finding love, removing a curse, bringing the passion back, banishing depression, making a business more profitable, and many more. Let Ileana’s charming writing style carry you to a magical place, where simple actions, creative rhymes, and sincere intentions will bring you your heart’s deepest desires.”

The Little Big Book of White Spells is true to its title. It has White magic spells for casting protection, healing certain sicknesses, attracting love, etc. Some of the spells comes from different types of Magick like, Candle magic, Crystal Magic, Herb Magic, Bath Magic and they are all infused with some Ritual magic as well.

What I love about this book is that it’s beginner friendly. Abrev’s writing is relatable to a point you think you’re actually learning from a teacher right in front of you. The spells are well written too. There’s no room for misinterpretation.

Also Abrev writes about the uses for the different kinds of magic, like crash courses. She excellently wrote about how to protect oneself from harmful/negative energy. She explains about the law of Karma, and how curses work and how sometimes curses are self-inflicted. I love how she discusses it in a way that’s easy to understand, but still appealing for advance witches.

Here’s my thing about the spells, some of them I could do and some of them might be too costly for me. I live in the Philippines and some of the herbs and crystals I would need for the spells are a bit hard to find, but they are doable.

If you’re interested in starting magic then you should have this book, as it does offer a lot of quick and easy spells to do.

4 out of 5 stars.
