Family[ edit ] Amber spent most her childhood growing up in Chicago. Her father was a Roman Catholic and her mother Episcopalian , and she attended each on alternate Sundays. The Pagan Way was formed in the early s in response to the high demand of people wishing to join established covens, and in this they provided an alternative to the intensive screening programs and year-and-a-day probationary periods required by traditional covens. After joining and advancing through four of their five degrees, in Amber moved to Wisconsin with her then-partner Catelaine and was later ordained a Wiccan High Priestess in a separate ritual. The coven thrived for a while in Wisconsin but is now located in Los Alamos, New Mexico , where it is incorporated as a church.

Or consider Harry Potter and his friends at Hogwarts, relying heavily on their wands, brooms, and invisibility cloaks. Movies and novels are filled with magickal rings, swords, staffs, talismans, amulets, wands, goblets, hats, and all manner of knickknacks.
But an entire branch of magick uses no material tools, costumes, or physical props at all. In the first edition of True Magick, this was covered briefly under the name hermetic magick. Alas, that name means somewhat different things in different traditions and was not the best word to use in a general book on magick. For this edition, I searched for a better term that was universally accepted in the magickal community. Very quickly it became clear that there is no universal term for propless magick.
In order to fill this void in the vocabulary of magick, I discussed some possible new terms with some friends who are Witches and magicians. This may seem unnecessarily complicated to some, but do you know what? We need new terminology because that, too, is a tool. The Tools of Intrinsic Magick So if we use no material-plane things to perform an act of magick, what intrinsic tools do we have always with us?
All of its qualities were internal: imagination, will, silence, faith, love, and knowledge. Look at the four qualities of an adept, similar to the pyramid but not identical: to know, to will, to dare, and to keep the silence. Daring is included because it has always been understood that it takes courage to explore the further reaches of reality.
So all these are tools for intrinsic magick and any other form. Here are some more: Mind: We can visualize energies moving, events occurring, and symbols influencing the inner and outer worlds. We can imagine possibilities, focus attention, and mentally call on the aid of Younger Self, Higher Self, deities, allies, and guides.

True Magick : A Beginner's Guide
Amber K , book , book review , True Magick , writing I rarely write book reviews. However, once in a while, I come across a book that deserves my attention and gratitude. True Magick is seriously about the practice of real life magic. It is a book that can convince even the non-believers of magic to reconsider their position. How does Amber K achieve this seemingly impossible task? It is the structure, content and extraordinary level of knowledge, delivered in a very well-written prose, that allow her to put the magic k into the magick. Very few books, even amongst academic texts, nowadays possess a kind of structure that allows the reader to be clearly and gradually led into a topic.

And the few and far between good points in this book which are more like common helpful nuggets of advice. However, that does not mean this book is worth even picking up or reading at this point. It seems a little in poor taste to misquote someone who has been diagnosed with some level of disability while simultaneously dismissing them as being capable of working magick - let alone good magick. They may work magick, but they will certainly not be working the best magick of which they are capable. Anything which debilitates your neural system weakens your magick.
