Psychic Skills in Magic & Witchcraft – My Thoughts

Psychic Skills in Magic & Witchcraft offers the reader a solid foundation for developing and honing psychic skills. Plenty of information, precise definitions, and an easy-to-read style make this book an excellent guide for anyone wanting to learn a new skill or grow in others.

Now, the reader is journaling quite a bit; I encourage those who do not respond well to writing prompts to work through the other exercises anyway. Record your experiences in a way that works better for you. Yes, the author gets a little preachy about the efficacy of journaling, but as a life-long writer, I understand why she goes that route.

However, there are other ways to get information to stick into your brain through spoken word games and other memory techniques. The reader should use what works best for them. Because there is a lot of good information in this book, I’d hate for people to miss out because they feel pressured by a book to journal.
