The Magical Writing Grimoire is a sweet and accessible guide to using writing as both a healing and a magical practice. As well as providing a good starting point for understanding and writing your own rituals, the author offers exercises around unpacking your emotions and self-healing. This book is beautifully presented and encourages keeping a journal as a method of self-reflection and personal growth.
Despite the title and focus of the book, I feel this could be used by witches and non-witches alike, as the content would be applicable to anyone wanting to manifest a healthier emotional state, anyone interested in starting or continuing a journaling practice, or anyone fascinated by the power of words. Quotes and inspiration are sprinkled throughout this book and writers and poets in particular will enjoy prompts.
While this book invites exploration and creation of your own rituals for writing and witchery, it also provides a safe place for you to look towards processing and healing anything that is troubling you. It would be a gentle yet profound companion on a healing journey, empowering and encouraging in equal measure.
