    Probably one of the best books I have read all yearI bought this book only months before my hospitalization I had a mental breakdown and was hospitalized for 6 days and placed on different medication It was an extremely difficult time for me I won't take up too much of this review explaining to you how much of a hard time I had in and out of the hospital once I was released but I will tell you that once I was finally released from the hospital I could not read Like at all It wasn't because I couldn't focus or think straight I simply just could not read It broke my heart and for a time I thought that I would never be able to read againBut then I picked up this book This book is the book that helped me through it all This book's easy to read format and easy to follow practices not to mention the light hearted nature of the author's writing made this absolutely perfect for someone who was healing from a horrible ordeal This book is amazingly helpful and will put together and especially well organized It is sweet and lighthearted in nature The exercises and recipes are practical and laid out and described in a way that makes them easy to follow for any laymanI absolutely love the way this author writes She writes like she's reaching out a helping hand for you to take So sweet I wish I could reach into the book and give her a great big hugAnd let's talk about the first thing you see when you look at this book the cover gorgeous 😍 Like many other covers this is the first thing that initially drew me into the book I remember seeing an ad for it on Facebook and for some reason the cover just spoke to me as if it was written just for me I could never know at that point in time how much I would need it only months laterI love this book so much that I used post it notes to bookmark tons of pages throughout the Book of things that I want to or could need to come back to There is a LOT of bookmarks in this bookI just cannot talk this book up enough If you are hurt internally or externally and you need something to help you heal READ THIS BOOK

    Disappointing really Very very basic info with very few original tips Eat well sleep well exercise or at least stand up from time to time and here's a sprinkling of recipes for you What did I expect? Well why is this a book for witches? I don't uite get it I expected the author to address the uestions of magicalspiritual energy and on a in depth level The chapter 'Household self care' is not that bad but it's 26 pages out of 216 Everything else is mostly basic self care not witch specific and I mean basic here are some random uotes for you I'm just opening the book at different places'Say no when someone asks you to help with something if you don't have the time''Managing stress can improve your physical mental and emotional health''Journaling is a therapeutic practice'And so on and so on the book is jam packed with such revelations I mean I agree this is all good but to be reading 200 pages of this for 15 euros? Not the best buy of the year obviously

    05 out of 5 starsCan I really be disappointed when my expectations were next to non existent? DebatableLet's start with the self care part of the book There's nothing revolutionary about the things the author suggests we do as self care pactices naps baths journaling meditation teas scents and the like Trite all of it You can cover all that with a uick google search You don't actually need this book to tell you how to look after yourself It is common knowledge at this point that the aforementioned practices are soothing and helpfulNow that that's out of the way let us discuss why this book is c o n f u s e d While reading it I distinctly felt that a big chunk of it was just jumble of spiritual undistilled ideas The worshipping portion of this book prayers spells incantations comes off as self indulgent in the sense that I found it to be rather shallow and not attached to the Craft Witch is a word heavily associated with neopaganism but other than some vague animistic notions that at times were appropriating Native culture I don't think I learnt anything of value about modern day witches Moreover I'm somewhat uncomfortable with the idea of using a belief system and one's faith solely for aesthetic purposes which was exactly what I think happened here What makes me think that? Why the mental calculation of all the MONEY one would need to apply some of the crafts and ideas presented in this book in their every day life I wasn't aware that witchcraft practices were so vastly commercialised The self promo doesn't help to convince me otherwiseHowever it wouldn't be fair to say all that without aknowledging my own bias As an atheist and a firm believer in healthy scepticism I found the paganwiccancall it what you want portion of this book unecessary especially considering the points made in the previous paragraph As a student in the STEM field I couldn't have suspended my disbelief enough to accommodate for all the unscientific waffle in this book All that being said I have a great and active interest in religions and belief systems and the symbolism behind their dogmas and practices that has been passed down to me through my religious upbringing So I think it is fair to say that The Witch's Book of Self Care failed to satisfy my curiosity in that regardTo sum up I would NOT reccommend the Witch's Book of Self Care If you're looking for a Self Help book maybe look into a regular one but definitely not thisHappy readingPS Trigger warning Discussion of depressionIn my opinion the way this book discusses mental health is rather problematic so you might want to stay away from that There is a spell on how to acceptembrace your depression for crying out loud that could be understandably triggering to people Oh and one last thing Essential oils can't heal your mental health troubles

    I really enjoyed this one and will definitely be rereading in the future I bookmarked a ton of things to go back to Its full of spells rituals and practical info and advice I've already done one of the rituals and plan on going back to do Really looking forward to banishing fear of success which is a topic I have never seen another book bring up before Also some of the things surrounding guilt were helpful The part that made the biggest impression and that I am trying to implement daily is being kind to your future self Meaning don't leave problems for your future self than they can handle Balancing your needs now with those in the future She words and explains it much better than I do of course

    I was about to give this book two stars because I was not really enjoying it all the way through I was liking what the author was talking about when it came to self care but the rituals were a but repetitive and not something that I would see myself doing and that was what took up a majority of the book I wasn’t feeling it but I told myself to push through and finish it on the flight and I am so glad I did It vastly improved towards the latter half of the bookThis book splits itself into 5 chapters the first is Self Care and Magic Where it gives self care tips and the different sources of magic they will be using in the books such as herbal magic candle magic meditation etc I thought this was a great overview and is good for readers who are unfamiliar with this field This chapter also had a lot of good things to say about self care and my favorite one was when it says “don’t let yourself be driven by a need to be approved or liked by others”This uote is under the section that talks about living authentically and it is so important for people to incorporate in their life If you live for others’ approval you aren’t going to be happy They people who are meant to be in your life won’t be looking for you to please them or seek their approval Live to make yourself happy and you then in turn you will find the right people It also talks about how self care is acknowledging all the parts of yourself even the “bad” ones We aren’t perfect and we all have flaws Instead of denying them we should acknowledge it and by doing so we can work on bettering ourselvesThe next chapter talks about Mental and Emotional Self Care My favorite part of this chapter is the Daily 5 Minute Self Care Routine to start the day For me when I wake up the first thing I check are my phone and my messages and I really want to get away from that I want to be able to commit the first few minutes of my day to myself It talks about stretching drinking a glass of water and even doing meditation This honestly may take than 5 minutes but the longer I am away from my phone in the morning the better My favorite self care concept that this chapter talks about is the idea of Affirmations Over the past year I have learned how much positive affirmations can affect how you go about your goals and whether or not you will succeed in them For example I used to hate running When I got tired I would immediately stop and berate myself for being so out of shape That happened for years and I couldn’t get out of it During one running session as I was starting to get tired I decided to try out a positive affirmation I told myself that “I could do it” that I “was strong” and that “I could make it through” and you know what happened? I did I made it through the tiredness phase during my run and was able to finish all 3 miles I am not exaggerating when I saw that positive affirmations has changed my life and i am glad this book talks about it It also gives you affirmations that you can start saying to yourselfChapter 3 is probably my least favorite chapter and why I was considering giving this book 2 stars It is all about physical self care and doesn’t really have much in teaching you about self care and the majority of the chapter are recipes for different meals teas and skincare Normally I love stuff like that but the recipes listed here are meant as comfort food and don’t necessarily deal with health It even says in the book that eating healthy and well is a vital key to caring for yourself The author even states that when it comes to calories these foods may not be the best A lot of the recipes didn’t seem healthy and I believe that comfort food can be if you think hard enough There are amazing dishes that have a lot fruits and vegetables that the author could have incorporated in here My favorite is a simple dish of Baked Salmon Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes and tasted good and also leaves you feeling goodThe book started to pick up after chapter 3 and the next chapter talks about Spiritual Self Care What I liked most about this chapter was that it talked about how you can honor the gods and deities you believe in I don’t know if I believe in a god with a name I believe that there is a force in the world but I don’t want to give that force a name However whenever I look to strength I do call on to the Greek gods I don’t know how to explain it but believing that honoring a specific god or goddess and them giving me strength in their specific domain is strangely empowering I also liked the part when it talks about how we can form connections with certain animals and the animal we are drawn to says something about what we value There is a list of animals in the book and the values that they are associated with The owl I have felt most connected to is the owl and it is associated with wisdom insight and honesty with yourself I loved when I read this because these are three concepts that I value greatly and try to incorporate in my daily life especially the part of being honest with yourself That can be one of the hardest things you can do but once you achieve it you will feel exceptionally free This chapter also talks about Focused Meditation which is all about focusing on one thing at a time It seems simple but in a world where we have so many options and things to do we sort of developed a habit of multi tasking When we eat we watch a tv show When we only listen to music as background noise for other activities What focused meditation asks you to do is to spend an hour or two on just one activity so that you can fully appreciate itThe last chapter deals with how to make your home safe for you It starts off the chapter bys aying “your home is your spiritual retreat the space should reflect the protection nurturing and support you need from it” I completely agree with this You home should be a place that gives you energy and you should curate it in a way that does just that You need to be able to create comfort declutter and cleanse your home and this chapter lists a bunch of rituals and activities that can help you do just that The activity that I liked the most was where it teaches you to create an altar to yourself It has you collect things that make you happy and put them on a towel or a tray You will look at these things as you chant affirmations that validate you have done a great job and you will continue to succeed in life It is important for you to honor yourself and it’s nice to see that the author tries to help her readers do that in a creative wayOverall this was a really good book I loved all the things it had to say about self care and agreed with most of them If you are looking to better yourself and for fun activities to help you do that this is a great book to check outTL;DR This is a really good book that has great things to say about self care and a bunch of fun activities and rituals for you to start loving yourself My only negative is that the recipes in this book aren’t necessarily healthy and that is important to me and my self care journey

    I liked some parts and flipped through others that didn't apply to me I liked how the book looked visually but would’ve appreciated a spellingredient glossary This isn’t that “witchy” but it has practical advice for healthy living including how to create vision boards how to make bath bombs and meditation tips


  7. says:

    A classic trashy 'aesthetic witchcraft' book Why do you have a spell for 'embracing your depression'? This author needs to really sit down and think about whether she really wants to cash in on the mental health of naive young girls who just want to look pretty and 'witchy'

    DNF ing this because I Really Did Not Like This I wouldn't necessarily go as far as to say I absolutely hated it but 👀I stopped properly reading this at about page 30 and ended up flipping through the next 40 or so pages to see if I wanted to power through it and if it was even worth a bit of my time Turns out that it wasn't It reminded me a lot of seeing a therapist which mind you turned out to be useless and an absolute waste of both my time and my therapist's Just flipping through and skimming the pages of the book that I did thoroughly annoyed me because it was a lot like your typical meditation and journalling and positive thoughts will cure your depression narrativeThe author even includes a spell to embrace your depression as she puts it and likeok that isn't how depressionbeing depressed actually works butok Sorry to break it to you Arin Murphy Hiscock but reminding yourself that you are worthy of love is not that simple when you are struggling with depression especially as I have for over 13 years now I don't know who or what even led you to believe that absolute nonsense but ¯ツ¯That was on page 69 of the book and I promptly stopped flipping through from there because Yikes
