A practical guide to the ancient magical tradition of Russian sorcery and Eastern Slavic magical rites Passed down through generations, the Slavic practice of magic, witchcraft, and sorcery is still alive and well in Russia, the Ukraine, and Belarus, as well as the Balkans and the Baltic states. There are still witches who whisper upon tied knots to curse or heal, sorceresses who shapeshift into animals or household objects, magicians who cast spells for love or good fortune, and common folk who seek their aid for daily problems big and small. Sharing the extensive knowledge she inherited from her mother and grandmother, including spells of the "Old Believers" previously unknown to outsiders, Natasha Helvin explores in detail the folk history and practice of Russian sorcery and Eastern Slavic magical rites, offering a rich compendium of over 100 spells, incantations, charms, and practical rituals for love, relationships, career success, protection, healing, divination, averting the evil eye, communicating with spirits and ancestors, and a host of other life challenges and daily situations, with complete step-by-step instructions to ensure your magical goals are realized. She explains how this tradition has only a thin Christian veneer over its pagan origins and how the Slavic pagan gods and goddesses acquired 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.

Recensioner i media

"In Slavic Witchcraft, Natasha Helvin offers us a fine selection of Slavic charms arranged by type--love, money, protection, health, and more. Her book reflects ancestral beliefs that Christianity and the demonization of former deities were unable to eradicate. This book is definitely worth going out of your way to get." * Claude Lecouteux, author of The Book of Grimoires * "Slavic Witchcraft is a deep dive into the spells and practices of traditional witches from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. Natasha Helvin shares cultural and familial practices--real old world witchcraft--that can't be found in any other modern book on the subject. This book reveals the ancient pagan practices that are still entwined with the current Orthodox religion that is very much in place." * Phoenix LeFae, author of Cash Box Conjure and Hoodoo Shrines and Altars * "Natasha Helvin has not shied away from including both blessings and curses in a comprehensive Slavic grimoire that addresses just about any life situation. Within these fascinating pages you will learn to craft love spells and breakup spells, spells for money and business success, spells to win in court, to surround yourself with protection while traveling, spells for peace in the home, for health and healing, and for prophetic dreams. The author concludes with traditional Slavic tips for how to live a good life. A very practical how-to guidebook for anyone interested in ancient forms of peasant wisdom and magic." * Ellen Evert Hopman author of The Real Witches of New England and The Sacred Herbs of Samhain * "This book is a lifeline, preserving a lineage of practices passed through generations, graciously presented to the public to partake of the experience and insight gained." * Maja D'Aoust, Witch of the Dawn and author of Familiars in Witchcraft *
