a practical guide
for witches and magicians
by Donald Tyson
Published by Llewellyn Worldwide
We hear about familiars and in most cases the writer is referring to
animal totems, rather than the familiars of old, such as the lover, the
wise imp and the elemental companions. These creatures exist solely
to aid the witch or magician at her/his work.
Donald Tyson (Nova Scotia,
Canada), the author of two novels and more than a dozen books on Western
Occultism, offers a renewed perspective on the art of power glyphs as a
method for summoning spirit familiars.
With its unfortunate
perception of demon rising, calling familiars has taken a bad wrap in the
past centuries, but today Tyson brings to the table, a unique system for
creating a set of sigils based on power glyphs, the key to establishing
contact with familiars.
"Familiars summoned by
this method become valuable assistants who will do everything in their
power to fulfull your goals.
For the witch or magician
interested in branching out and expanding the scope by which you can
enhance your magic and incorporate spirit familiars into your work, this
book must reside on your formulas shelf.
