John Canard - Defences Against the Witches' Craft

For centuries curses, hexes and the 'evil eye' were seen as part of

daily life in rural England, resulting in a rich heritage of folklore &

apotropaic magickal practices. Such charms as Witch Bottles,

Witch Balls, Hagstones, Horseshoes and Brasses, Magick Squares,

Abracadabra, Rowan and Red Thread, Flint Arrowheads and Pebble

Charms were often made from readily available natural materials.

They seemed simple, yet when constructed properly and empowered

with secret rhymes and other mysterious enchantments, they were

both very popular and considered to be very effective.

Here English Root Magician John Canard provides insights on how

to find out if you have been cursed, detecting the perpetrator through

dowsing, how to destroy magickal links, nail footprints, work with

Church Grims and construct the Archangel Haniel's charm. He also

discusses many other protective charms, growing protection in your

garden, protecting the home against negativity, as well as enlisting

both Angels and the sprits of the Dead for help! There are quick

fixes and methods to 'return to sender' and thoughts on when

cursing might actually be justified.

Drawing from his own extensive research of English folk magick,

the grimoire traditions, witchcraft and cunning - as well as his own

experiences as one of only a small number of practicing English

Root Magicians today, the author shares many unique insights

and rare lore never published before.

Whether your interest is out of pure curiosity, or through a genuine

need for neutralising or reflecting a curse, this throrougly practical

book is a unique, balanced and invaluable study of one of the darker

and rarely discussed areas of magick.
