I associate summer with books and long leisurely afternoons of reading. There’s just something about a languid, hot, lazy summer day and curling up with a good book and an iced tea. This summer was especially exciting for me because it heralded the release of my 8th book, Green Witchcraft Grimoire.
If you’ve been wondering what this book is all about and if it’s a book that you should add to your personal library, here are endorsements and reviews that have come in from authors, radio hosts, artists, and pagans extraordinaire to define the magic and explain the benefits of Green Witchcraft Grimoire.
“Green Witchcraft Grimoire is an excellent starting point for those wishing to learn more about working with the natural world in spellcraft. Raine details not only ingredients and tools but also ways to use those items to achieve a specific objective. Intended to be a book that is referred to time and time again, she leaves plenty of space for writing personal notes. Highly recommended!” ―Deborah J. Martin, Author of Herbs: Medicinal, Magical, Marvelous!, A Green Witch’s Formulary, and other books
“Finally, someone gets it! From novice to expert, this wonderful grimoire will demystify the perceived complications of walking your unique path no matter your affinity. Its simple, clear, and soulful use of your spiritual time, with solid information on the foundations of spiritual crafting, is a combination not to be missed. My new go-to for my magical path. Bravo Amythyst Raine.” ―Onyx Moon Blackstone, witch and founder of Something Wytchy
“I’ve practiced witchcraft, in independence and gathering from the many traditions of our multiple ancestors, for more than 30 years. When I began my personal journey into the past to anchor my own search with Earth-based spiritual expressions, my good friend on pages was Scott Cunningham. Amythyst’s grimoire has the foundational information and guidance Cunningham brought to our community so long ago. Elementary flow, inspiration to grow! Amythyst gives a witch the basic tools for growth and an awareness that helps to provide the window within where witchcraft waits to be expressed.” ―Gwendolyn H. Barry, blender and owner, Daughters of Isis

One of the most popular spells is a spell to enhance your dreams and protect you from nightmares . That’s why I included this spell titled “Sweet Dreams Spell” in my new book Green Witchcraft Grimoire:
[excerpt] “Dreams have always fascinated human beings, and along with the fascination comes magical ways of controlling, filtering, or even producing and enhancing them. From the familiar dream catcher used to filter nightmares from positive dreams, to the more mystic use of ritualistic herbs, the means and ways to experience this mysterious inner world has never ceased to inspire us…”

This quote from Green Witchcraft Grimoire says a lot about green witchcraft and the green witch: “Not all of us face daunting danger every day, but sometimes we all face something that scares us. It’s okay to be scared but it’s not okay to flee in the face of something we need to confront. When something is coming up in life and you’re going to need a little extra courage to stand up to it, you can cast this spell…” ~ What does this bring to mind for you?
There’s a lot to cover in the world of green witchcraft — so much so, that I literally wrote the book on it. ~ If you could pick any one thing to learn more about green witchcraft, what would it be? Take a peek at the Table of Contents for Green Witchcraft Grimoire (out on July 14th) and let me know in the comments below!
From the curling tendrils of fog crawling through a dark swamp on a hot night, to the seedy candle-lit backroom of a smoky hoodoo shop filled with exotic curios: poppets (dollies); bags and intentions; pins and herbs; images; talismans; amulets; curses and blessings; cemetery dirt; snake sheds; oils, potions, powders; shadowy figures; and legendary tales– it all adds up to Mojo.
How ironic that this holiday, meant to lead us into the light and spring, is greeted this year with a massive snowstorm. As I speak, the neighbor’s snowblower is roaring in the background, strong winds are tearing around the corners of the house, and the furnace is rumbling to keep us warm and toasty. Here in Nebraska ice was the main problem in Omaha, causing several accidents and closing Interstate 80. Because of the high winds, salt couldn’t be used on the roads– it would just blow away– so black ice was a nasty surprise for many drivers.
Tonight we lit candles for this pagan holiday, in tribute to the Goddess Bridget…to welcome in the light and spring, and to banish winter. We ask Bridget to protect those out and about, to keep us warm and safe within our homes, to heighten our level of creativity, and to show us the three faces of the goddess– the maiden, mother, and crone– along with the unique wisdom that comes with each.
From our house to yours, we wish you a blessed Happy Imbolc!
