Both a book to read and a

workbook to uncover your own


Magic is something you can only

practice by doing. You do not become magic by watching a magician.

Everyone has their own expression of magic in the world and you will 

experience your true power and joy when you find and live that uniquely

You magic.

This book offers time and activities for you to begin to know your

Personal Magic. In a way it can be two books, mine and yours. You may

read the book and ignore the participatory activities, you may come

back to the activities later. I think that doing the activities without

reading the stories behind them will mean that your magic will be of a

weaker more imitative kind.

Real magic means being able to transform what you hear, read, see into

your own voice and path. Ultimately this book is about finding Your

path, your Spirit’s quest if you like. You will have purpose, know why you

are here, and uncover the magic that is yours and only yours to do and

bring into the world. If we are to not just survive but thrive in the years

ahead we will all need to be aware of and have the courage to manifest

our Personal Magic in the world. I offer this book in the belief that it will

assist you in that quest.
