About the Author

Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983.  Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens, when she was first introduced to Kaballah, or Jewish mysticism.  Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition.  Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder.  

An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft.

This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeeth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree.  In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker.

Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.

This book is the ultimate for learning the divination oracle called automatic writing. Nothing worked for me until I tried McCoy's book, and I was not even half way through with it when I had the thrill of feeling my hands move and write without my conscious participation. This book offers everything needed - and much more - for learning this art. If you can't do it after reading this, then you can't do it

This book is an awesome introduction to the subject. Automatic writing is the art of "contacting other intelligences through the use of a pen and paper while in an altered state of consciousness." This book answers many commonly asked questions about this divinatory art, while offering many different techniques to make it work for you. McCoy explains the power of the planets, planetary hours, and colours in the zodiac in her chapter on automatic writing and astrology.
In the next chapter, one of the most important in the book, the author explains proper methods of breathing, meditation,and the chakras. The next section deals with actually doing automatic writing. McCoy describes many different methods of attempting this art, and offers tips for the event that you don't succeed. Finally, she offers some basic interpretations of some common symbols used in automatic writing. A glossary rounds out the book.
All in all, this is a great introduction to a subject often referred to but rarely described. If you are interested in this easy yet accurate form of divination and communication, be sure to get this book as a starting point.

An awesome book. Was a fast and interesting read. She is a no fluff, to-the-point writer. She gives a variety of tips for those who have trouble along with exercises that help all around. Touches on basics of "cleansing" and such. Must read if you want to learn automatic writing
