Modern Magic: Reclaiming Your Magical Heritage
Does it seem like practices that were once considered New Age and “out there”—such as yoga and meditation—are becoming more accepted in mainstream culture? It’s no coincidence! In this day and age, the veil between the worlds seems to be growing thinner; more and more people are attracted to and discovering latent talents for practices like divination and communicating with animals and the earth, “supernatural” encounters with spirits are becoming ever more commonplace and even science is starting to slowly explain things that magical people already know. Magic, as it is known by many today, is about dealing with energy. By learning to work with the energy of the universe, the energy of our planet and our very souls, we can change the course of our lives, receive guidance from the Other Side, and even heal one another (or ourselves).
Matthew Krajewski has been interested in magic and spirituality for many years, and Modern Magic is his first book on the subject. This book is not a “how to” guide; unlike so many other books about magic already on the market, this one does not offer ritual and spells and tarot spreads to allow you to jump right in. Instead, Krajewski tackles the more difficult and complex topic of theory, tying a number of related topics—divination, empathy, intuition, “paranormal” experiences, spiritual journeying, and more—together into a comprehensive study of how magic truly looks in our modern world. He includes introductory descriptions on various topics, meant to whet your interest and prompt you to explore your own abilities, as well as profiles of a wide variety of people he knows who are truly magical people. If you are interested in magic but are not sure where to start in your journey, pick up a copy of Modern Magic.
