Make Magic of Your Life
Passion, Purpose, and The Power of Desire
By T. Thorn Coyle
For pagans or anyone with magickal leanings everywhere, internationally known Pagan and mystic T. Thorn Coyle offers a unique path to make everything in one's life alive with magic in Make Magic of Your Life.
Coyle shows how to achieve harmony and balance and find your true purpose by activating the magical Qabalistic formula known as The Four Powers of the Sphinx: to know, to will, to dare, and to keep silent.
In Make Magic of Your Life, Coyle explains how our deepest failings are often the very things that fuel our life's work, keep us human and whole, and even make us act as though-like Prometheus-we can steal fire from the Gods.
From the Introduction:
"Working magic means showing up with your demons and your divinity, your sorrow and your joy. Alchemy only happens when we are willing to go through the processes of gathering together, refining, pouring, and solidifying. In the end, we have something fine to hold."
Coyle shows readers how to draw on the four powers of the sphinx to discover their "soul's possibility," their life's work, that which they most long to do.
