While probably good intentioned, I find this book to be a little naive and ill placed It treats the idea of faeries like a ouija board they re to be called and controlled at one s swish and tap of the finger Though some people might find this notion practice helpful, peaceful, or even resourceful, I think it tries to turn the idea of faeries into something much less, even trivial It seems as if it is something easily accessible and controllable, like making a fresh cup of coffee in the morni While probably good intentioned, I find this book to be a little naive and ill placed It treats the idea of faeries like a ouija board they re to be called and controlled at one s swish and tap of the finger Though some people might find this notion practice helpful, peaceful, or even resourceful, I think it tries to turn the idea of faeries into something much less, even trivial It seems as if it is something easily accessible and controllable, like making a fresh cup of coffee in the morning.Something is off I m not entirely sure if the author is being serious with this book, or if it is a book that is poking fun at the genre of magical beings It is set out like a completely factual book and treats fairies and other beings as real and that you can see them There are exercises given to help open you mind and eyes to them. This is a book that I have mixed feelings about The folklore information is good, and serves as a broad introduction to a lot of different faery myths, but I don t like her approach to it how she brushes over a lot of the less positive aspects of the lore, the claim that technology and magick are somehow incompatible, the attempts to fit all pagan religions into a sky father and Earth mother dualism faeries don t need your damn gender binary , and the passing comment in the epilogue about This is a book that I have mixed feelings about The folklore information is good, and serves as a broad introduction to a lot of different faery myths, but I don t like her approach to it how she brushes over a lot of the less positive aspects of the lore, the claim that technology and magick are somehow incompatible, the attempts to fit all pagan religions into a sky father and Earth mother dualism faeries don t need your damn gender binary , and the passing comment in the epilogue about how TV and videogames are stifling children s imaginations and making them hyperactive and asthmatic , somehow Recensione su La Biblioteca di AmargantaHo comprato questo libro d istinto In quel periodo ero alla ricerca di qualcosa che mi parlasse meglio e in maniera pi chiara del mondo del Piccolo Popolo, e questo libro sembrava fare al caso mio Non ho ancora capito se mi piace o no Mi spiego il libro molto bello, scritto molto bene, indubbiamente grazioso e le copertine della Venexia su di me hanno sempre un fascino irresistibile.Ma non mi ancora chiaro se l autrice ci crede o no alle fate I Recensione su La Biblioteca di AmargantaHo comprato questo libro d istinto In quel periodo ero alla ricerca di qualcosa che mi parlasse meglio e in maniera pi chiara del mondo del Piccolo Popolo, e questo libro sembrava fare al caso mio Non ho ancora capito se mi piace o no Mi spiego il libro molto bello, scritto molto bene, indubbiamente grazioso e le copertine della Venexia su di me hanno sempre un fascino irresistibile.Ma non mi ancora chiaro se l autrice ci crede o no alle fate Insomma, in un libro del genere ci dovrebbe essere un minimo di risposta di questo tipo per tutto il tempo in cui l ho letto ho avuto la sensazione che la Eason mettesse un po le mani avanti Parla molto delle fate soprattutto in termini di introspezione psicologica , e questo va bene, perch un interpretazione, e neanche campata per aria Per non so, mi ha dato la sensazione come se in realt lei volesse gridare a tutto il mondo s le fate esistono ma non volesse essere presa per scema O al contrario, che pensasse che siano un mero fatto psicologico ma avesse dei dubbi in merito Insomma, non chiaro.In ogni caso si tratta solo di una mia sensazione di fatto l unico difetto che ho riscontrato, perch il libro scritto molto bene, con argomenti molto buoni e capitoli dedicati ai vari tipi di creature magiche quindi non solo fate inoltre alla fine di ogni capitolo c un esercizio dedicato uno in particolare, una meditazione per scrivere la propria storia sulle fate Non vi aspettate rituali, non ce ne sono In compenso da alcuni consigli per mettersi in contatto con questo mondo nascosto I love this book, it s by no means a complete guide or anything, but it has a bit of everything and is a great starting point into Faerie Lore It comes with exercises in every chapter and I will definitely do them all, as soon as I get to it This book goes on my permanent Bookshelf. It works nice as a collection of different spirit myths around the world with a great focus on the UK mythology However, I just cannot skip over the whole realistic tone and sometimes ridiculous reach of the author to prove that fairies are real Her dismissal of all things modern, including what she called happy pills was also rather distasteful. A fascinating look into the history of Fairies and the new age way of communicating with them. I ended up enjoying this book muchthan I thought I would Pleasantly surprised. {DOWNLOAD EPUB} ô Complete Guide to FaeriesMagical Beings: Explore the Mystical Realm of the Little People õ If you have ever believed in a world beyond the everyday, this is the book to help you find it A Complete Guide to Faeries and Magical Beings is a wonderful companion for those who wish to tour an enchanted world Cassandra Eason begins with the myths, legends, and real evidence surrounding the origins and existence of fairies and then takes us on a journey throughout the world to introduce us to the many different varieties of these mysterious beings From fairies to viking giants, selkies to gnomes, fey beings abound In this spritely volume, Eason shares fascinating anecdotes of people who have actually seen them And if you d like to meet them yourself, Eason also provides simple techniques, exercises, and rituals to attract, find, and communicate with the little people Hang silver bells by a window Keep potted plants in your home Or sit quietly between two oaks at dusk or dawn Fairyland mirrors universal human issues fortune versus misfortune, fate versus free will, perfection and imperfection, illusion and objective reality, different time scales, the existence of parallel dimensions, and the duality of human nature Some people even believe that fairies are becoming visible again, as they were in preindustrial days, to remind us of the consequences of consumer society the danger of being seduced by our own versions of fairy gold If you want to be happy, be Henry David Thoreau If nothing else, this book is an excellent introduction to fairies, especially Celtic legends about fairies The author pulls from ancient myths to modern movies to discuss the world of the fey, making an entertaining and diverse read The book is easily one of the most well organized books I ve come across on the subject, and I would strongly recommend it as a jumping on point for anyone wanting to learn about fairies and their kin.Unfortunately, the book isn t perfect When the narrative stray If nothing else, this book is an excellent introduction to fairies, especially Celtic legends about fairies The author pulls from ancient myths to modern movies to discuss the world of the fey, making an entertaining and diverse read The book is easily one of the most well organized books I ve come across on the subject, and I would strongly recommend it as a jumping on point for anyone wanting to learn about fairies and their kin.Unfortunately, the book isn t perfect When the narrative strays from Celtic creatures, the information can turn to hopelessly vague, or in some cases, downright offensive For example, the author finds no problem with referring to Romani people as gypsies and states alleged facts about the Native American culture, completely ignoring that there are over 500 federally recognized tribes, and they do not share unified practices or legends.Bottom line, if you want to learn about fairies and mythological heroes without the headache of reading actual Celtic legends, this is your book If you want something that discusses magical creatures and figures in multiple cultures with just as much authority, perhaps you should look elsewhere
