Glamour Magic by Deborah Castellano

You will not find any reference to glamour magic tucked away in any dusty occult grimoire. Neither will you find it taught by masters of any of the mystery schools or find an ancient temple dedicated to its practice. Nevertheless, according to Pagan writer Deborah Constellano, it is a very real and legitimate form of spiritual work – one which enables you to follow your heart’s by totally engaging with your inner power. As she states in the opening to her book “Glamour isn’t a magic of landscapes that never really existed – it’s everything interesting and exciting about you that you already have residing within you.” Terms of Reference… Read More
