#1

Hi there Icontexto-emoticons-01-032x032
My name is Julie and i'm new to this forum. I was wondering whether anyone knows any educational spell or witchcraft books or books about demons, spirits and angels.
I'm currently reading the forbidden rights (it's very interesting) but i really want to learn how to perform 'spells' and there is just so much information out there it is difficult to tell what is correct and what isn't. I would really appreciate everyone's help!

Dion Fortunes novels are very dated but were her way of passing on her teachings, to the widest audience possible & contain a lot of information if you take the time to read them. The Kabbalah unveiled by S L Macgregor Mathers. A practical guide to qabalistic symbolism (2 volumes) by Gareth Knight. Le mystere des cathedrales by Fulcanelli.

Two gooks I forgot to list are Delores Ashcroft-Nowicki, Ritual magic workbook. Which is a great source of basic knowledge of the Western ritual occult path. And also Caitlin & John Matthews Encyclopedia of Celtic Wisdom.
But anything by Caitlin, John, Delores, Deon or Gareth, among others are worth the effort.

Take care with anything that is of the Gardener Witchcraft tradition, as he was a fake. His rituals were not handed down to him, but written by Alastair Crowley & several of the rituals have been badly rewritten to remove the Crowley phraseology etc.
The original rituals themselves are good. Crowley knew his stuff, but Gardener was a fake & some of Crowleys work has been badly damaged by others attempting to remove the obvious Crowley overtones.
A great book worth having on your shelf as a reference book is The Golden Bough by Frazer. It is the definitive work on anything mythology.
Also if you are British, read about the Arthurian tradition. It's ours & its symbolism part of our collective unconscious. John & Caitlin Matthews are good sources for anything Arthurian that is magic related.
If the old religions interest you then a Scottish priest called Robert Kirk wrote an amazing book called The Secret Commonwealth, which is the written oral tradition.

Delores Ashcroft-Nowicki, has a article about the Secret Commonwealth on her website at...

Ars Goetia/Theurgia (with Crowley commentary...I can't stress enough how important it is)

Daemonic Reality by Patrick Harpur

Chicken Qabalah by Lon Milo DuQuette (he also has some Enochian stuff)

Scrying the Tree of Life by the Ciceros

Book of Enoch is kinda fun.

Look to Crowley for magick and not to Llewellyn books for "spells." There's just a lot of crap floating around.

There's some fun stuff by Peter J. Carroll and Austin Osman Spare.

It might also be fun to get a little more well-rounded and look at some hoodoo stuff.

Don't forget the Hermetic stuff, like Kybalion.

Oh...and David J. Hufford's Sleep Paralysis documentary (on youtube)

LBRP and Middle Pillar exercises
