Pure Magic by Judika Illes

Pure Magic by Judika Illes is one of the best intro books to learning about magic that I’ve ever read. If you want to learn about magic, spells, and more – this is one of the books that you want to read!

Book Description
Pure Magic is a practical crash course for anyone who's ever envied TV witches. Or women who always seem to get the job, apartment, or date they want. Or people who can make their dreams come true. Judika Illes has written a spellcasting primer in down-to-earth language. "I consciously set out to write a book that would be different from any other on the market," Illes writes. "This book is jargon free. It contains information usually handed down from teacher to student. It focuses on the practical aspects of spellcasting in a clear and nonjudgmental way... No specialized metaphysical training is required." 

What is required is that we become aware of the natural rhythms, energies, powers, and patterns of Earth and her diverse inhabitants. 

Pure Magic offers a plethora of individual spells, plus concrete advice on how and where to practice magic, to rightly use words of power, and to cleanse, protect, and enhance your magic self. Work your way through it's easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan, and all will become clear. Learn to listen to Mother Earth, focus on your magical allies, gather the simple equipment Illes outlines, and follow the straightforward instructions, and you will soon be constructing your own spells and experiencing magic in your everyday life. Pure Magic is a book that beginners will follow rigorously and advanced spellcasters will refer to again and again for guidance and inspiration.” – Pure Magic

My Thoughts
Pure Magic is really an excellent resource for those beginning in magic. Judika Illes writes in a very easy to read way that makes it feel like you’re in a one-on-one class with her learning about magic.

I really enjoyed reading about the basics of magic, the different types of spiritual allies, and even tried a few of the spells. As a beginner, I found it all to be highly interesting and not intimidating to want to try it. The spells that are included in the book are aimed to be used by a beginner, but advanced spell casters could use them too.

If you are interested in magic at all, this is a very easy to read book that won’t leave you confused, and will help you to spark the magic in your own life. I highly recommend it.
