Ancient Egyptian Divination and Magic
In this practical manual, Eleanor Harris takes the reader step by step through ancient Egyptian religions and magical philosophy thousands of years old.
Drawing on instruction found in such texts as The Leyden Papyrus and The Papyrus Ani (the Egyptian Book of the Dead), the author reveals such secrets as how to invoke Egyptian gods and spirits for divination and magic; scry with fire, oil, and water; evoke messengers and spirits of the dead; and cast spells for love, protection, and healing. Also included are detailed how-to instructions for making authentic ancient Egyptian clothing, amulets, and more to evoke the magic of ancient Egypt.
