Slavic Witchcraft review ´ 3 Natasha Helvin ☆ 3 characters characters ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Natasha Helvin In Christian veneer over its pagan origins and how the Slavic pagan gods and goddesses acuired new lives as the saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church She details how the magical energy for these spells and rituals is drawn from the forces of nature revealing specific places of power in the natural world as well as the profound power of graveyards and churches for casting spells She explores the creation of amulets and talismans the importance of icons and the proper recital of magical language and actions during spells as well as how one becomes a witch or sorceress Offering a close examination of these two thousand year old occult practices Helvin also includes Slavic folk advice adapted for the modern era Revealing what it means to be a Slavic witch or sorceress and how this vocation pervades all aspects of life she shows that each of us has magic within that we can use to take control of our own destiny. Lovely to find a book that covers something other than Wicca world However the word slavic covers a lot of territory in central and eastern Europe In this book the author is referring to the east specifically Russia and Ukraine and the population under the Eastern Orthodox Church The western part like Poland which is my ancestry under the sway of the Roman Catholic Church is not part of the book s purviewMs Helvin does a good job with an overview of the old folkloric traditions Many of the superstitions will be familiar to anyone who knows about events like the Salem witch trials poor elderly women are viewed with suspicion everywhere apparently Examples of magic rituals are given also familiar to anyone with a nodding acuaintance of folk magic By far the best part of the book were the death and graveyard traditions practices and rituals This was unknown territory for me and I found the information fascinating and informative It definitely adds to my knowledge baseI could have wished for but it is what it is A good overall introduction to eastern Slavic magic and folklore
