MindLight: Secrets of Energy, Magick & Manifestation

Silver RavenWolf, Author . Llewellyn $14.95 (268p) ISBN 978-0-7387-0985-7

Meditation with a quantum twist is what RavenWolf offers in her 19th book about witchcraft and magick. "Meditation is nothing more than the moment you make magick," she explains, and it is precisely the means for harnessing what she calls MindLight, an internal source of power that is "a tool that you can use to build a healthy, positive future." Two-thirds of the book consists of meditation exercises grouped into three categories: basic, life pace and astrology-related. RavenWolf's tone throughout is so filled with pep that readers will either be swept up into trying the many meditation exercises or run screaming from prose that's enthusiastic (!) to the point of intolerable. Beyond the chatty encouragement, RavenWolf provides an impressive selection of exercises specific to common places encountered daily (the shower, the car), times of day (in the morning or while watching the sunset) or the various planets. All of these drills are designed to improve health, self-esteem and a practitioner's overall outlook and approach to life. If readers can forgive the RavenWolf's syrupy tone, MindLight is, at the least, a thorough handbook of meditation techniques especially helpful in the area of slowing the ever-quickening pace of living in today's world.
