Summary Ò Initiated Memoir of a Witch ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Of the goddesses and magical women throughout history Initiated stands suarely at the intersection of witchcraft and feminism With generosity and heart this book speaks to the uestion is it possible to live a life of beauty and integrity in a world that feels like it's dyingDeclaring oneself a witch and practicing magic has everything to do with claiming authority and power for oneself of taking back our planet in the name of Love Initiated is both memoir and manifesto calling the magical people of the world to take up their wands stand up be brave describe the world they want then create it like a wit. It s hard to explain exactly what this book is so I will just throw around some adjectives while I digest having just finished it an hour ago It is uniue brave erudite inspiring raw and real It is a feminist anthem from a daughter and a leader but that is almost a byproduct It seems she set out to write memoir to share her experiences of learning her power through personal pain But along the way she learned to spiral herself up into the empowered witch she would eventually become through lessons in survival as well as her studies of historical figures both real and myth That knowledge becomes a rally cry to us all to climb our mountains alongside the heroines of the past She is a wonderful example of how you can study the stories and use them practically in your life for energy or inspiration towards real change in your life She does not try to convince you that witchcraft has virtue or value She explains how it comes into her life but she does not get very practical about it She does uite a bit of demystifying of the art and practice but also that is a byproduct and not the point of the book I appreciated that I learned of this book because I listen to the author s podcast Strange Magic I can see why she elected to launch the book during Scorpio season but I also somehow feel like the timing was a gift just for me I needed something to help me find some control inside of my energy this week and this met that need and then some Life is always going to be better if you believe in your own ability to practice magic

Summary Ò Initiated Memoir of a Witch ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Smoke Gets in Your Eyes meets Women Who Run With The Wolves in this gorgeously written fierce political personal and deeply inspiring Michelle Tea memoir about finding meaning beauty and power through a life in witchcraft An initiation signals a beginning a door opens and you step through Traditional Wiccan initiates are usually brought into the craft through a ceremony with a High Priestess But even though Amanda Yates Garcia's mother a practicing witch herself initiated her into the earth centered practice of witchcraft when she was 13 years old Amanda's real life as a witch only began when she underw. I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review Opinions are my ownI really enjoyed this memoir Garcia has writing chops that are strongest when she s describing landscapes which thankfully she does often Her reverence for the natural world is palpable as is her devotion to social justice anti misogyny and anti capitalism She s also extremely well read in the history of myths witchcraft and folklore from many parts of the world and I really like the connections she is able to draw between all of these stories it has the effect of painting the world as a connected orb rather than a bunch of broken pieces which is what things like borders and wars make I am definitely not a witch but I do find witchcraft and astrology very interesting and very ueer And btw there is ueer stuff in here I always like to point that out for people who are looking for it as I always am It s no wonder that ueer people gravitate toward it as it inherently values emotion community agency healing the individual and the collective from trauma and the earth While not all of it resonates with me Garcia makes some compelling points about how important ritual can be and how crucial holistic thinking isBut this isn t a comprehensive guide to witchcraft it s a memoir and Garcia s story is incredibly interesting in itself Her mother practiced witchcraft so she was exposed to it from birth After several traumatic events related to her family Garcia struck out on her own and had a long period of time when she didn t necessarily practice witchcraft but always felt attuned to something spiritual and saw significant signs that she sometimes misread She writes about her experience as a sex worker her deep and ultimately abusive relationship with a drug dealing manic pixie dream girl living in Amsterdam and finally reconnecting with her mother Garcia s relationship with her mother felt extremely real to me in that as much as they love each other they revert to their younger selves when they re together I have experienced this a lot with my own mother I liked how Garcia readily admits to feeling irrational anger at her mother for seemingly innocuous things Garcia s transformation into the Oracle of Los Angeles happens at the end It s an interesting story but this is where the woo woo gets to me a little I m just not sure about people being oracles But I m willing to embrace this uncertainty It s what witches do Overall despite a little bit of uneven pacing I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it Another great memoir to add to the shelf
