--Satya Colombo, author of Flow: The Five Elements Way of Fierce Wisdom, Strength and Beauty
"Its core wisdom reflects the in-looking of a mage who has made the magic journey to unearth the diamond in her spirit to place it in the setting of her life. I sail upon that same stream of knowing." - Orion Foxwood, author of Candle at the Crossroads
"What can you do with magic? Everything and T. Thorn Coyle proves that in her book Make Magic Of Your Life: Purpose, Passion, And The Power Of Desire. Through the use of the framework of the elemental Four Powers of the Magus, sometimes known also as the powers of the Sphinx or the Witches' Pyramid, she guides and encourages the reader to step into their power and thereby into their sacred work."
--Ivo Dominguez Jr, author of Casting Sacred Space: The Core Of All Magickal Work
"A mini masterpiece from a true modern mage. While showing you how to make magic of your life, Thorn Coyle succeeds delightfully in demonstrating how to make your life magic."
--Lon Milo DuQuette, author of several books including Enochican Vision Magick
"With my resistance turning from a negative force to a positive force, I was positively bouncing on my toes as I entered the third section of the book, "To Dare." Although the entire book is powerful and transformative, this section shattered some of my self-imposed barriers and brought me to a really wonderful realization...now is a perfect time to take a leap I've been both dreading and dreaming of for years."
From the Author
We all walk a unique path in this world. We all have the work that only we can do. We each experience resistance around this, and longing, and fear. It is my great hope that this book will help each of us find and walk this pathway, inspired by desire.

In terms of the work itself within the book, I want to preface that just because I'm writing a review of it now doesn't mean that I've gone through all the work in it. Like Thorn's other books, this work is a continual process -taking months or even years to explore in its entirely. Or at least that's how I imagine it unfolding for me. Example: People often give me strange look when they ask me about Kissing the Limitless and I respond by saying that I've read it seven times and have been doing the work in it consistently for four years. I can see a similar process unfolding for me with this book too. A lot of these concepts and workings involve tightly-woven, self-told stories that need to loosened up a bit. They involve taking time to explore those things we've buried deep within us, bringing them to light. The practice of reaching for desire is the work of a lifetime. It will be interesting for folks who do the work within it to write another review after going through those processes.
However difficult the actual work itself might be, don't let that intimidate you. Make Magic Of Your Life is also packed with a number of helpful exercises to assist you along the way. The book titles these things as "Soul Support," which I've found very helpful in working through these powerful concepts so far.
Even though I haven't even scratched the surface of the actual work within this book, I already feel so inspired after reading it just once. On a personal note, I will say that I've always had a strange relationship with desire and what might be called "life purpose." I've always had huge yearnings to do big things with my life that the modern world likes to tell me I can't do for one reason or another. Example: You can't have a good, stable job that you enjoy without having a degree... oh really? To me, Make Magic Of Your Life is a book of rebellion because it shows you how to move towards desire by using your own heart as a map, not the instructions that are spoon-fed to us by the over-culture at a young age.
And for people who don't know what they desire? This book can help you, too! Using the first power of the sphinx - to Know - we can find the threads of our purpose that lead to that larger arch of our life's desire. That is what I loved most about this book. No matter who you are and where you are on life's journey, you can take up this work and put it to use right away.
As I move forward in the pursuit of my own desire, I know that Make Magic Of Your Life will be a constant companion on my journey.
