The Magical Personality: Identify Strengths & Weaknesses to Improve Your Magic
Llewellyn Worldwide, 2002 - 274 pagina's
Magic is essentially a psychological enterprise. Your own psychology is of central importance to what you want to do, what you can do, and what you actually do. Most of us know ourselves through the bright, primary side, and this is the side of ourselves that we like to present to others. This is the part of ourselves with positive strengths that allows us to do worthwhile and constructive things.
At the same time, however, there is the dark side-the shadow. This is the side we are often unaware of and that disposes us, particularly during difficult times, to wrongful, destructive acts. We are, in effect, simultaneously black and white magicians. Which of these aspects holds the wand of power at any given point decides whether we will be constructive or destructive in our aims. Which of these has most control is determined by the degree of self-knowledge we possess. Any one of us can submit briefly to the dark urges of the shadow.
Self-knowledge is the key to successful magic. Identify your personal strengths and weaknesses using a questionnaire based on the ancient system of temperaments. Determine your magical personality type, and shed light on its corresponding shadow type. Discover why your magical work sometimes fails despite your best efforts, and learn techniques for developing the weaker elements in your nature. The Magical Personality is a groundbreaking book for magicians, Witches, Pagans, and anyone who follows a magical path.
