The Sorcerer's Secrets: Strategies in Practical Magick

4.24 of 5 stars 4.24  ·  rating details  ·  100 ratings  ·  7 reviews
This book is about real magick, effecting real change, in a real world.

There are some books on magick that teach it purely as spiritual advancement. Others teach it as a form of psychological self-help that effects only inner change. While magick can and should be both of these, it is also something more. The Sorcerer's Secrets is about success in practical magick; it is a

This is one great book that gives one the fundamentals of working effective magick. Many books will give you spells and rituals and maybe even some philosophy yet they will not teach you how to do effective magick. This book does! Jason Miller first starts his book with the fundamental message that magick is a skill which people can perform to various degrees. Some people cannot perform it all while others it comes naturally. In they day of old not everyone was privileged to learn about magick. ...more
This book is riveting. It's full of exercises, information and ideas from a person whose focus is practical and bullshit-free. If you want to use magic to make your life better immediately, an experienced professional sorcerer has finally boiled a huge amount of information down into key practices and techniques taken from traditions ancient and modern and made usable right now. This witch's brew of Greek and Tibetan sorcery, hoodoo, astrological and Goetic magic as well as NLP cuts through obfu ...more
This is a great book that works on many levels. The author is obviously writing from long experience and brings deep knowledge of many things that are lacking from other similar books. I should say that this book is not for beginners. It assumes at least a good working knowledge of spellwork. It doesn't require decades of preliminary work and Wizarding 205 as a prerequisite. Just be aware that this isn't an introduction for those unfamiliar with practical spellwork. What it is most definitely no ...more

In this book, the author presents practical ideas and strategies for people who are just starting out in their magical practice. This isn't a 101 book, but its safe to say it's a 102 book that also offers some insights to magicians with more experience. What I appreciate the most is that the author takes the time to focus on considerations such as finances and explains that while magic can help, it's also important to learn practical mundane skills.

I also appreciate the author's choice to draw o
I adored this book from chapter one! The author has the no-nonsense style that I love (yet rarely get to read) but also adds a bit of familiarity by interjecting notes about his own experiences. All this makes the book highly readable.

I love that "The Sorcerer's Secrets" balances strategy with spellwork to offer guidance in a variety of ways. Miller goes into detail about attacking a problem from several angles, and offers insights on how to blend the magical with the mundane for optimal result
After reading Protection & Reversal Magick: A Witch's Defense Manual (Beyond 101), I expected more. For non-professional, plain Jane and Joe, people like you and me.

The book is good, no doubt. A must to have for those interested in magick, and get both books, not only this one.

Too much of real world behavior and professional aspects for my interests.

How to make magick work for almost anyone, practice, techniques and what to expect from the magick in general and from professional witch, mag
An excellent book on practical magick. In this book, Miller breaks down spells and rituals into their basic components. He begins by giving detailed instructions for each of these components before gradually combining them into what most people would recognize as magick as the book progresses. Most magick books fail in this regard by refusing to explain certain aspects or assuming that a person has enough experience to already know what the book means. I managed to get more than half-way through ...more
