The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ What was the most challenging chapter to write?

Pre-order your copy here: https://amzn.to/2FIOU1f

It was a real challenge to develop Chapter 10: Spells for Binding and Protection for my new book The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners, but it was also a ton of fun to push my own limits and really get creative. I think you’ll really love this book because for those unfamiliar with Wicca, it will bring a new understanding and a starting point for spiritual growth; and for the seasoned practitioner there will be a slew of useful spells and rituals.

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ My favorite part!

Personally, my favorite part of my new book is Chapter 3, Discovering Your Wiccan Power, because this chapter introduces the new Wiccan to those things that will make up their spiritual practice: 

  • learning how to set intentions
  • how to ground and center yourself 
  • how to cast and close a circle 
  • the kinds of tools that you’ll be using 
  • how to set up an altar. 
  • as well as the importance of your own Book of Shadows and how to get started

 I’m curious what your favorite part will be!

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ Solitary practice or coven?

One of the most challenging aspects of your Wiccan practice and an important choice you’ll make is the decision to either remain a solitary practitioner, or to join a coven. As a solitary Wiccan you will have the freedom to build a spiritual path that is uniquely personal; as a coven member, you’ll be expected to meet coven rules, obligations, and milestones within a specific time frame. That’s why I included this helpful tip in chapter four of my new book, The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners. There are tons more tips and tricks like this all throughout The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners.
