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.
Some of the rituals are interesting and useable, but for the most part the rituals include ingredients that a) are not household items, b) are extremely hard to find outside of specialty stores, and c) are decently expensive. On top of that, most of her advice is only followable if you have money to throw around and buy new things every time there's a negative emotion tied to an item. The rituals that are useable, she passes over pretty quickly in the book to move onto the more outlandish rituals and the like.
While she does have some good advice here and there, this book is much more focused on specific connections with mother earth then with just spiritual and magical housekeeping. If you are not focused in her area of magic, it is not very helpful or relevant to you.
Hopefully I can find a book that's more traditional soon.
