The Solitary Witch is a big book! I picked up the book, open to a page and read carefully. Word for word - line by line to determine if the information was right for me.
The book was, as you might guess, quite interesting. Something said, "Buy the book." I'm glad I did!
I would advise witches to read, The Book of Shadows For The New Generation -Solitary Witch. An instructional method can help you to become a better person. Whatever your interest - shadows of religion & mystery, spells, charms, formularies, rituals, and all manners of enchantments Silver Raven Wolf's method is one of the best.
Preface - The Essence of Witchcraft - Silver Ravenwolf
The essence of Witchcraft is transformation. The idea is to take the "you" currently present and accounted for and change your essence into something better, greater, stronger, and incredibly dynamic. Being a Witch means to want to work everyday to be a better person. When you change yourself, then the world around you cannot help but change. There's no getting around it. All this changing can be hard work-and there are certain aspects of the path that require time, effort, and energy. Although many of the things you truly want can be achieved in a short time with the techniques presented in this book, there are other issues in your life that will require patience, effort, and practice to reach your ultimate goals. Thats okay. if you didn't have to work at some things, then the study wouldn't seem worthwhile. To be a Witch, you must be brave enough to face everything inside of you, and have the courage to change the things you do not like. Being a Witch has nothing to do with spells, rituals, and unusual clothing - they are the fun stuff. To be a Witch is to desire personal transformation.
