Magickal Mermaids and Water Creatures : invoke the magick of the waters by D.J. Conway.
Author: D.J. Conway
Stories of the Mer-Folk, especially Mermaids, exist in nearly every culture around the world that sailed the oceans or large rivers. Human-like, except for their iridescent, scaly tails, Mermaids and Mermen have fascinated humans for thousands of years. Because the largest of these beings exist in the oceans, most people are not aware that smaller versions of the Mer-Folk live in inland rivers, streams, marshes, and large or small waterfalls. Like many other magickal beings, the Mermaids travel easily between this world and the astral planes, appearing only to those who truly seek to know them and learn their ancient powers. Magickal Mermaids and Water Creatures brings these fabled creatures out of the storybooks and into real life through the studies of D. J. Conway. Within the pages you will learn about: * The secret powers of Mermaids and Mermen. * Different water creatures and where you can find them. * How to entice water folk for friendship and health. * How to avoid dangerous water
Although I really enjoyed this book and thought it was interesting, I was disappointed because I didn't expect this book to be on Wicca-type of magic. Upon reading this book, the beginning was excellent, and opened up a world full of undersea creatures I didn't know existed, as well as tidbits about a mermaids life as well as the types of mermaids that live throughout the world. However, as I continued reading, I realized that this book was slowly loosing its mermaid quality, and went into how to practice water magic, which is not something I'm interested in, as well as spells, chants etc. Since I have never read a book on real magic, I found this to be interesting. However, I expected this book to be completely on mermaids. If you are interested in real magic, the author has written a bunch of books similar to this one on the subject. This book had a lot of substance to it, and was rich in information on magic, mermaids and underwater creatures. I give this book (****) 4 stars.
