This one not so much.
It covers all the bases, but it seemed lacking in passion - dare I say, energy.
It doesn’t feel she’s written this from the heart. Like she was in a hurry to finish.
I am so disappointed.
I’ll have to look elsewhere ...
Unfortunately, I can't recommend this book or much of anything within it, at least not to any fellow polytheist or Pagan. Let's start with the obvious: this isn't a Pagan book. Ms. Moore's spirituality appears to be solidly in the New Age tradition, which I'm sure works for many of those who practice it. But this book has a decidedly monotheistic approach, referring to "the Divine" as a monolithic source of energy that is essentially benevolent towards humanity. There's also a certain sense of privilege and entitlement here, with the idea that everyone is born with all they need to live their soul's purpose being a central theme.
More importantly, though, there are ideas and practices in this book that could prove actually harmful to the neophyte. Ms. Moore often repeats the idea that there is no such thing as negative energy. I suppose that you could make a grand philosophical case for this, but in practical terms it's the same as uncritically approaching Nature as friendly and peaceful- even in the suburbs, if you tried that you'd come out of the experience with poison ivy rash, wasp stings, and tick-borne illnesses at the very least. There are a couple of recommended actions in this book that are the magical equivalent of poking a hornet nest to see if it's still occupied. No, I'm not going to go into detail because I really don't want to anyone to try.
There's also a section on cleaning your own energetic space that is really more of a mini self-help manual. I have nothing against self-help books as a genre, and it's a great idea to be aware of your own issues and dealing with them before you undergo certain sorts of magical and/or devotional training. Ms. Moore even lays out what seems to me to be a deep and thorough blueprint for healing the self- but she thinks the reader should go through it alone. I'm not a therapist of any sort, but it seems to me that much of what she recommends should only be done under professional supervision.
I wish I could give this book a better review. Ms. Moore writes well and clearly, and she has a great command of metaphor and image. She seems to mean well, and a lot of her ideas are good; the emphasis on personal care being important if you want to help others ("put on your own mask first") is just one of many that spring to mind. But I can't in all honesty recommend this book to anyone.
