If you love being on the seashore gazing out across the water, if you feel that pull at the pit of your stomach through your very being...then you will love this book...if your just curious and wandering what it's all about it's light enough not to deep, and you will enjoy this book also.
All said and done, this book holds lots of information about shells, luna cycles, tides, deities, meditation and lots more....you decide :)
Questo è un libro ben scritto ma, a mio avviso, poco interessante...
A lot of fluff, which is one of my biggest pet peeves. I don’t need that many descriptive words lol. It’s like when you go to the farmers market and the girl selling crystals talks to you in lengthy sentences in a slow voice using modern-spiritual words in a never ending cycle. Gets old quick.
There were parts I enjoyed reading, but I wouldn’t recommend this book to a friend. If your heart tells you to buy it, but it! Maybe there’s a section in here that you need, but for me it was “meh”.
Over all I really enjoyed this book. It's the first I have found and read about ocean-based spirituality really and I it seems these kinds of ocean-based pagan books to be rather few and far between. This perhaps makes me a bit biased as to the good of this book.
Much of this book talks about things readers who have read other neopagan books might not be too unfamiliar with to some degree; however, these thing are in a different context or focus of course then as they are usually in other works. Regardless of if someone is familiar with several common practices found in neopagan books or not, this book seemed to do a good job at explaining things well enough to keep both new readers and more experienced readers from being left out of sorts.
The books starts out talking about the premises of ocean-based spirituality and about some natural facts of the ocean and its cycles which was a really nice. The book has few nice ideas on how to change basic practices found in paganism things such as a grounding and centering techniques that uses the ocean rather than the land, and a breathing experience which focus on breathing in `ocean energy' which I found very nice. One of the chapters which I found rather helpful was about alters and tools as it talked about bringing elements of the ocean into ones sacred space. It also talked about divination with cowry shells which I found interesting.
After that was about seashells - what they look like, what they can be associated with, and their uses (similar to how crystals can be used but with seashells instead). The chapter was interesting and the idea of using seashells rather than crystals or herbs in ritual or on one's alter was a continued nice touch in being the ocean more into one's practice. Next, there was a chapter on totem animals specifically of the ocean and the idea of working with mythical sea creatures which I also enjoyed though like many books on totemism one of its draw-backs was that was more of a list and how to find one's aquatic totem and not as much on what to do once a totem is found. Finally the book finishes up with talking about being aware of the Moon and her phases considering how much the Moon has an effect on the ocean as well as a few ocean inspired mediations and other daily practices someone can being into their daily life.
I do recommend this book for the those interested in the ocean either as part of their spirituality alone or as a way to bring in more ocean based elements into one's spirituality. Actually having a resource for this kind of information was something I enjoyed. A well worth it buy for me indeed.
