Críticas:

""The Witches' Book of the Dead" by Christian Day is without a doubt one of the most in depth works on darker magic I have ever had the pleasure to read. The author skillfully describes the wisdom of the old wise ones, from myth and the true historic version, and unlike other writers he is unafraid to touch upon subjects such as Necromancy, the Veil beyond and the dangers of spirit work. I especially found myself enthralled by his section on the Altar of the Dead, as it brought forth the need for not losing sight of those who have gone before us. A true must have for anyone's occult library!" -Corvis Nocturnum, author of "Cemetery Gates: Death and Mourning through the Ages"

"I have known Christian Day for several years, and am proud to call him friend. That friendship - with its trials and triumphs - has only enriched me as a person and as a Witch. Thus, when offered to review his literary offering, I must confess to being truly honored. Sentimentality aside, and giving in to my innate bibliophile tendencies, I set to work.

Christian's book explores oft-ignored and much maligned aspects of the Craft. In reading its pages, I had the mental image of reading from one of the Black Books of antiquity. Contrary to popular McWiccan and PopPagan advocates, in all true persuasions of the Old Craft, we find the old Chthonic Powers holding court. The Cult of the Dead is the very life-blood of all true sorcery. His manuscript does much as an antidote, laying aside the Shadowed Veil in challenge to common assumption.

This book offers us an opportunity to regain our full place as men and women of power. True, power can be scary, it can be dangerous, it can be ad

"Christian Day's book is worth the price if only for the new scholarship on Pagan history and etymology. He reminds us of our historical links to the dead and of our role as mediums between the worlds, then goes on to show us how to reclaim that part of our magickal heritage. Even with the impressive scholarly bibliography, he remains easy to read. His practical information is based on personal research and experience, and is complete and clear. This is the only book I've ever read on contacting the dead or on necromancy where I've felt comfortable enough to put the information into action. Christian writes with wisdom and authority, and makes the reader feel safe and secure, knowing they are being lead through advanced ritual practices by someone who knows his stuff A-Z." -Edain McCoy author of "Advanced Witchcraft: Go Deeper, Reach Further, Fly Higher"

"Christian Day has given the magical community long sought after details on communicating with the elusive spirit world. "The Witches' Book of the Dead" offers contemplative, genuine methods, while written in a gratifying narrative style. Read it for the information other manuscripts have lacked. Reach for it often as an excellent resource book. However, enjoy it for the reading experience alone. Historical information compliments practical techniques, A simple must-have for every pagan. For the pagan who seeks better understanding of spirits they'll be thrilled so much is packed in one handy book!" -Sabrina The Ink Witch, "www.theinkwitch.com"

"As the long-time presenter of Salem's renowned Festival of the Dead, Christian Day has already proven that he is a man not afraid to venture into shadowy realms. Now, as the author of the ground-breaking "The Witches' Book of the Dead," Day escorts readers to the frontiers where the living and the dead intermingle, offering both mystical and practical advice for safe, happy coexistence. The Witches' Book of the Dead is packed with old lore, as well as information on cutting-edge technology. In these pages, you will discover clear, lucid instructions for contacting the dead, as well as explanations for why you might want to do so. While simultaneously emphasizing the sacred nature of his subject, Christian has written a fun, easy-to-read and easy-to-access instructional manual for interaction with the ever-present souls of the dead." -Judika Illes, author of "The Encyclopedia of Spirits, The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, The Element Encyclopedia of Witchcraft," and "The Weiser Field Gui

"Christian Day is a refreshing new voice and makes a dynamic debut in "The Witches' Book of the Dead", a book devoted to establishing true and meaningful communication with those on the Other Side. Day is a meticulous researcher, a talented and skilled practitioner, and a great writer who shares his knowledge and personal experiences with an engaging style and sense of humor. The history and folklore are fascinating, and every technique and ritual have passed the test of experience. Not only will you be informed and entertained, you will be inspired to action. This book is fresh, exciting, and like nothing you have ever read before!" -Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author, "The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits"

""The Witches' Book of the Dead" is a well-researched and thoughtful compendium of magical lore, necromancy, spirit contact and mediumship. It mixes a rich background of historical information with practical applications of ritual and magical practice. Day is not afraid to draw back the veil and peer behind it. Let him show you what he has discovered! A very good read; a volume full of worthwhile information." -Raymond Buckland, author, "Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft"

"If you are looking for yet another book from a new age ninny, feel-good guru or pathetically positive pagan, keep looking. Christian Day has written a book that that those who seek a connection to their dearly beloved dead will understand. There has been a trend in our society to sanitize death to the point where there is a service and three days of mourning. Christian sees this as a grave mistake to assume that the connection dies once biological functions cease. He taps into normal psychological and spiritual needs that occur after a devastating loss. Having known Christian for over a decade, he does not just write about how to communicate with the dead, but he has practiced these methods as he has experienced the deaths of close loved ones. He has learned that it can make one stronger and is brave enough to share his philosophy and practices with others. This book is empowering to those who feel that they have suffered a great loss, as they will learn just what can be gained. This

"Christian Day creates a heady blend of history, lore and real practice in his book on the necromantic arts. Without a doubt this is the most useful and unambiguous book available to the modern practitioner, one that is sure to become an occult classic." -Peter Paddon, author of "The Book of the Veil, Through the Veil, The Crooked Path, A Grimoire for Modern Cunningfolk", and "Visceral Magick"

"Employing the powers of the Sphinx: To Know, to Will, To Dare and to Keep Silent, we're grateful that Christian has ignored the "Keep Silent" part. Finally a decent book that brings a perceived malevolent practice into the light in an open, honest and very blunt fashion--the only way he knows how! Although necromancy is another useful magickal practice, it has been much maligned and avoided as taboo for centuries. This tome is a refreshing take on the balance of nature in working with the spirits of our 'dearly departed' as well as the Cthonic deities and entities from around the world who guide, guard and keep them. If you're one of those of the living who subscribes to the notion that magick is exclusively about love, light and life, and death is a subject to be avoided, put this book down. It is neither for the faint of heart, weak of mind or the fear enslaved soul but will appeal to magickal and mundane of all branches of spirituality from Wicca to Catholicism and beyond. And so,

""The Witches' Book of the Dead" was like taking a journey back in time into the days of the old where the hints of sorcery and myth lingered in the air and witches were still very much shrouded in the veil of mystery and secrecy. Christian brings detailed and concise knowledge and research of necromantic lore, history, spirit communication and magic. The author's unique writing style and ability is as magical and creative as the text found within the pages of his book. I have always taught and found that the darkness is equally as beautiful as the light, and "The Witches' Book of The Dead" has brought this truth back into the realm of modern witchcraft. Christian Day has outdone himself with this rare, beautifully written, brilliant work. If you are tired of reading regurgitated, watered-down 101 books or have found yourself in a place where you wish to delve deeper into the core of the occult, then this is a must read." -Starrfire Price, Founder and Webmistress, "PaganSpace.net"

"This remarkable book opens with a concise history of Witches as Sorcerers and Necromancers--such as the infamous Witch of Endor in the 1st Book of Samuel. Necromancy is the art of conjuring the dead, to consult with them for purposes of gaining information not known to the living. This may involve finding lost treasures, unraveling mysteries, or divination of the future.
"Author Christian Day presents every aspect of necromancy clearly, practically, and matter-of-factly--as should be the case, for "Black Magick" (also called "Low Magick" and "Sorcery") is simply another name for Practical Magick--that is, magick designed to effect a change in the physical world--as opposed to within the consciousness of the magician him/herself." -Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, author of "Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard" and headmaster of The Grey School of Wizardry

"Through all the ages and all the lands, man has breached the horizon in search of understanding the watery depths of the soul. Learn this history, understand the present and even dabble in the arts, if you dare all within Christian Day's expose of Witches and the Dead ... (a marriage made in h...)
A shocking, witty and scholarly thesis offers the historian, the sorcerer and the curiosity seeker something to ponder and something to remember--WE do not walk alone." -Bloody Mary, Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, Occult historian, Psychopomp, and owner of Bloody Mary's Tours

""The Witches' Book of the Dead" reflects the spirit of a Warlock who plays by his own rules (as every great Witch or Warlock should). Christian Day is an amazing resource when it comes to magic and Witchy legend and lore. Day breaks down Witchcraft history, humanizes the folks who have always stood casting and conjuring at the outskirts of society, and then celebrates them like one would cheer a rock star. A great book and mystical look into connecting with the other side and transforming the universe around us." -Jeff Belanger, Founder of Ghostvillage.com, author of "The World's Most Haunted Places", and host of "30 Odd Minutes"

"Some people believe that witches are heartless. Others believe we have no soul. But Christian Day proves them wrong by putting his heart AND soul into writing "The Witches' Book of the Dead." To me, honoring our ancestors and remembering the old traditions are of the utmost importance. The ability to communicate with them and ask for their assistance not only enriches our lives but keeps their magick very much alive. From Altars to Yew wands, no (grave) stone was left unturned in this well researched and beautifully written compendium of Necromancy." -Marla Brooks, author of "Workplace Spells, Animal Spells and Magick" and host of "Stirring the Cauldron Radio"

""The Witches' Book of the Dead" is without a doubt one of the most in depth works on darker magic I have ever had the pleasure to read." --Corvis Nocturnum, author of "Cemetery Gates: Death and Mourning through the Ages"

"Christian Day effectively reminds us that as Witches we belong not only to a Cult of Sex and Fertility, but just as importantly to a Cult of Death. A powerful modern manual for practitioners seeking to add necromancy to their repertoire, rooted deeply in history and tradition." --Christopher Penczak, co-founder of the Temple of Witchcraft and author of "The Plant Spirit Familiar"

""The Witches' Book of the Dead" offers contemplative, genuine methods, while written in a gratifying narrative style. Read it for the information other manuscripts have lacked." --Sabrina The Ink Witch, artist and founder of "www.theinkwitch.com"

"Filled with mystery and magick "The Witches' Book of the Dead" is deliciously dark, edgy, thought provoking and beautifully crafted." --Ellen Dugan author of "Practical Protection Magick"

"Dare to take the ancient journey into the realm of the dead, guided by the Necromantic knowledge of the Witches and Warlocks of old. This book is not for the fearful but rather for the sincere seeker of the Netherworld in all its truth and dark beauty. Stride now into this dark world with Necromantic Warlock, Christian Day, who has touched the shadowland and now brings it to you within each and every chapter of this well-researched tome. Begin your journey now!" -Reverend Lori Bruno, Hereditary Strega and High Priestess of Our Lord and Lady of the Trinacrian Rose Church

"Christian Day has stirred up all the ancient lore of Majick and placed it in the hands of his readers. Very well researched." -Reverend Laurie Cabot H.P.s of the Cabot Tradition and Founder of the Cabot Kent Hermetic Temple

"The Witches' Book of the Dead is a well-researched and thoughtful compendium of magical lore, necromancy, spirit contact and mediumship. It mixes a rich background of historical information with practical applications of ritual and magical practice. Day is not afraid to draw back the veil and peer behind it. Let him show you what he has discovered! A very good read; a volume full of worthwhile information." -Raymond Buckland, author, Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft

"Impressively researched, compelling, and immensely readable, Day's first book resurrects the vast power of the spirit world and offers it to modern-day practitioners." ---Fiona Horne, Radio and television personality and author of eight books including Witch: A Magical Journey

"In these pages, you will discover clear, lucid instructions for contacting the dead, as well as explanations for why you might want to do so. While simultaneously emphasizing the sacred nature of his subject, Christian has written a fun, easy-to-read and easy-to-access instructional manual for interaction with the ever-present souls of the dead." --Judika Illes, author of The Encyclopedia of Spirits, The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, The Element Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, and The Weiser Field Guide to Witches

"A powerful modern manual for practitioners seeking to add necromancy to their repertoire, rooted deeply in history and tradition." --Christopher Penczak, co-founder of the Temple of Witchcraft and author of The Plant Spirit Familiar

"This book is an invaluable text that can open pathways to subjects otherwise deemed unapproachable in a way that makes necromancy understandable to all."-Leilah Wendell, author of The Necromantic Ritual Book, Encounters With Death, and Our Name Is Melancholy the Complete Books of Azrael

"Christian Day presents every aspect of necromancy clearly, practically, and matter-of-factly. From start to finish, this is a fascinating compendium of necromantic lore, and I recommend it highly!" --Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, author of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard and headmaster of The Grey School of Wizardry

Reseña del editor:

Witches are creatures of magic. They cast spells, heal, and foretell the future. What you might not know is that Witches can also commune with the spirits of the dead.

In The Witches' Book of the Dead, modern-day Salem Warlock Christian Day shows how the spirits of our beloved dead can be summoned to perform such tasks as helping you to discover hidden opportunities, influence the minds of others, seduce the object of your affection, and even reach into the dreams of the unwary. According to legend, the Spirits of the dead can confer magical talents, fame, love, and wealth on those brave enough to summon them.

The Witches' Book of the Dead explores the enduring relationship between witches and the dead and teaches rituals and incantations to help readers open doorways to the spirit world.

Topics include:

  • Legendary Witches who have raised the dead, including The Witch of Endor, Circe, and Erichtho
  • Creating ancestral altars and building relationships with spirits
  • The tools of Necromancy: the bronze dagger, yew wand, iron keys, graveyard dust, the offering cauldron, spirit powders, the human skull, and more
  • Methods of spirit contact, including automatic writing, scrying mirrors, spirit boards, pendulums, and spirit mediumship
  • The ancient arts of necromancy as a method of conjuring the dead to assist in magic
  • Ridding yourself of unwanted spirits using rituals of cleansing, banishing and exorcism
  • Ghost hunting techniques that combine psychic wisdom with modern technology
  • Communing with the dead in dreams
  • Sacred holidays and powerful celebrations of the dead
  • Resources on where to ethically obtain the tools of the trade
  • An overview of the feared deities of the Underworld
  • Rituals, recipes, exercises, and more!

Dare to walk between the worlds with Christian Day as he guides you across the River Styx into the shadowy realms where the dead long to connect with us once more!
