Books

Although most of my writing is focused on my blog, from time to time I gather or produce an exceptional amount of information that can’t easily be condensed into a single post.  For this, a different medium is preferred, and so I occasionally write a book about the topic, which can range from something of a short pamphlet to a whole textbook, depending on how much material there is to cover.  Due to the depth and breadth of information covered as well as the effort that goes into editing and formatting them, I charge a small fee for these books, but trust me: the information is worth the cost!

Although previously you could purchase these ebooks directly through my blog, you now also get them exclusively through my Etsy store or through my Ko-fi store using PayPal or most major commonly-accepted credit cards; using Etsy or Ko-fi will automatically send you a link for downloading the ebook.  Once the the file or link to its download has been sent out, or once the file has been downloaded from Etsy or Ko-fi, there will be no opportunity for refunds.  In addition to what’s available on my Etsy or Ko-fi storefronts, scroll down to the bottom of this page for what free ebooks I also have available to download them directly.  For more information on the other things I can do for you, take a look at my Services page.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


The Oracle of the Dominoes
US$10, available through Etsy or through Ko-fi

“The Oracle of the Dominoes” is a PDF ebook in English that presents the art and practice of performing divination and fortune-telling with the dominoes as a complete system. Using a traditional set of double-six dominoes, one can easily obtain as much depth and cover as much breadth as with Tarot, runes, geomancy, or any other form of divination; indeed, although dominoes are still young when compared to other forms of divination, there is much lore and wisdom that has been accumulated under each of these spotted bones. Based on dozens of texts going back to the 1800s, “The Oracle of the Dominoes” is intended to be used as a guide for anyone who is interested in learning a form of divination and fortune-telling that relies on nothing more than a common set of dominoes, regardless of their other spiritual traditions or practices they may be involved with. Just how divining with dice and playing cards has been a time-honored approach to better learning about ourselves and the world around us, the use of dominoes towards this same end is a beautiful, concise, and supremely helpful practice that stands to benefit many people’s lives in countless ways.

De Archangelis
US$10, available through Etsy or through Ko-fi

Of the nearly infinite classes of spirits that have ever been described, the angels are among the most well-known introduced into Western spiritual practices and philosophies. Although most often associated with Christianity, angels possess a much longer history dating back to well before the time of Christ and are seen in all Abrahamic faiths as well as several faiths not of this lineage. Other spirits called “angels” can be found in many other spiritualities that may or may not bear a resemblance to those of the Abrahamic tradition. This ebook explores the nature and qualities of the seven archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Jehudiel, Barachiel, and Sealtiel, as well as how to approach them in devotion and ritual. While much of the Western mystery tradition has focused on conjuring angels ruling over various elements or planets or aspects of Creation, this text will establish a practice closer to religious veneration and devotion of the most important among the angelic host parallelling a folk practice of religion.
