However, I got bogged down in the author's "Magical Floor Planning" and finding power areas in the home. A large part of this is based on feng shui like teachings, so if you like feng shui, it's the book for you. While the "Magical Floor Planning" part of the book wasn't very helpful to me, I could see how it could be good for other people.
Also some of the rituals seem impracticle to me (the petals of 40 white roses are used in one ritual, which I simply can't afford), but not all of them are that extreme or expensive. Even though it's a little harsh to say, I can't see myself using half the rituals in this book, but it got me started about rituals I could do.
If you are new to the magical path, I would recomend this book. It has a lot of Witchy 101 info, and most of us need some help combating clutter. If you're a seasoned witch (unless you need some starter tips on magically cleaning your home), I would recomend you look for another book or borrow this one from a friend or your local library.
Did you know that the clutter in your home is the clutter in your mind? The gifts that you hated, but would not throw away. Photographs from a long ended relationship still hanging on your living room wall. A vacuum tube, T.V. console from the 1980s that has been broken for years. Clothes that you can no longer fit and will never wear again, or the old mildew-smelling items in your closet, basement, or garage. Clutter can act like a ships ancor, holding you in the past, preventing you from moving on. This book helps you to rid yourself of the clutter in your home that not only makes you into an... "anachronism," but also draws in negetive energy, spirits and entities like a magnet. It is well written and gives plenty of examples and easy to follow instructions on how to clear your home. I already followed the authors advice, and you won't believe the results. It was as if a weight was taken off my soul, and the feeling of "sweet" relief rushed in like a mild summer breeze. My home now has an atmosphere of peace and positivity. If you need help in ridding your home of old negetive vibrations, then this is the book for you.
This book is a practical approach to feng shui from an eclectic magical point of view. It is packed with tips and methods that are refreshing and easy to follow, and the writing style is very accessible. Inside are wonderful and practical ideas for improving your love life, your finances, your sense of well-being, and protecting yourself and your home. She offers easy-to-understand how-to's for everything from creating your own gem essences to doing hand mudras.
What I love most about it is that all of the advice makes sense for modern life-- there is nothing in here that will require you to find arcane ingredients or do overly-complicated rituals. I have been practicing the magical arts for 22 years, and I found Magical Housekeeping to be very helpful. In fact, my copy is covered in post-it notes reminding me to return to certain pages. And so I recommend it to both the experienced and the novice, or to anyone, magical practice or not, who just wants to have balance in their home.
In the introduction, the author shares her own experience in creating this book, and the events that led her to find her eclectic path. She is very honest and describes her methods with sincerity. I was so taken with the book that I immediately subscribed to her excellent Good Energy newsletter (the link can be found on her website).
If I had to compare Tess Whitehurst to any other other, I'd choose Scott Cunningham (RIP) or Dorothy Morrison. Cunningham and Morrison are two of my favorite modern writers, and now Whitehurst has become an instant favorite. I look forward to further publications from her, and perhaps a follow-up to this wonderful book?
