The best books for the psychic witch

Who am I?

I am a witch, professional psychic, occult teacher, and multi-award-winning author of the international bestselling book Psychic Witch: A Metaphysical Guide To Meditation, Magick, and Manifestation. I have been fascinated with the topics of magick and psychic ability since a young age and have been researching both topics and how they intersect since about eight years old. I've had the honor of studying under some of the most prominent witchcraft teachers, elders, and witchcraft traditions. I’m constantly asked by readers which other books I recommend after reading mine, so here are the top picks I feel are essential for every psychic witch’s library that have been highly influential on my work.

The Inner Temple of Witchcraft: Magick, Meditation and Psychic Development

By Christopher Penczak,

Book cover of The Inner Temple of Witchcraft: Magick, Meditation and Psychic Development

Why this book?

The Inner Temple of Witchcraft is one of the most influential books I have ever read. The book lays a fantastic foundation for any witch, starting with going inward and developing meditation and psychic skills to enhance your magick. In the dedication in my book, I wrote that Psychic Witch was sort of my love letter to The Inner Temple of Witchcraft, and it truly is. The Anniversary Edition includes expanded material and a foreword by Laurie Cabot, whose work, particularly her book Power of the Witch, has also been immensely influential on both of us as authors. Christopher once told me that my book was to The Inner Temple of Witchcraft what The Inner Temple of Witchcraft was to Laurie's Power of the Witch, and you can see a line of influence on these topics from Laurie to Christopher to my book. This was one of those books that changed my life, and I can't recommend it enough.


The Witch's Book of Power

By Devin Hunter,

Book cover of The Witch's Book of Power

Why this book?

The Witch's Book of Power by Devin Hunter is another book that was as immensely influential on uniting my witchcraft practice with psychic ability as The Inner Temple of Witchcraft and was just as life-changing for me. The book's focus is on understanding your frequency as a witch, guiding the reader to develop their inner psychic abilities, as well as weaving those frequencies as a witch. The book is extremely empowering in every sense of the word and has a strong focus on connecting to and working with spirit allies and divinity. Devin's perspectives, approaches, and practices are incredibly unique yet highly effective in terms of witchcraft books. You're bound to find insights and techniques within these pages that you won't find anywhere else and should be required reading for any psychic witch. 


Keys to Perception: A Practical Guide to Psychic Development

By Ivo Dominguez Jr,

Book cover of Keys to Perception: A Practical Guide to Psychic Development

Why this book?

Part researcher, part mad scientist, and complete magickal genius, Ivo consistently provides information and techniques that push boundaries in terms of innovation within witchcraft, occultism, and psychic development.  Ivo is another one of those witches with a highly unique approach to energy work. The Keys to Perception will deeply enrich your psychic skills and magickal skills. Blending elements from many different esoteric techniques such as Wicca, Ceremonial Magick, and Eastern Traditions along with his own insight and wisdom from years of practice and experience, Ivo presents time-tested, practical methods for the psychic witch. Ivo's work is groundbreaking and pioneering in many ways, and this is a must-have on every psychic witch's bookshelf. Every time I read Ivo's books, I'm incredibly inspired and influenced by them. This book, in particular, is probably his most influential upon my work.


MindLight: Secrets of Energy, Magick & Manifestation

By Silver Ravenwolf,

Book cover of MindLight: Secrets of Energy, Magick & Manifestation

Why this book?

Silver RavenWolf was the first author I ever read on the subject of witchcraft and has remained a constant source of inspiration and influence on myself and countless other witchcraft authors. Out of all her prolific work, I often feel that MindLight is the most overlooked, but it is absolutely a gem. The book focuses on all those subjects that the psychic witch needs; meditation, altering consciousness, energy manipulation, and manifesting magick with the power of your mind. “MindLight” is the term she uses for that inner power that witches can tap into for psychic development and enhancing their magickal practice to create a better future to enrich the reader's life. Because of these reasons, I asked Silver Ravenwolf to write the foreword to my forthcoming book. MindLight, like all of Silver’s work, has a very warm and friendly tone while still explaining complex subjects in an easy-to-understand manner.


The Psychic Energy Codex: A Manual For Developing Your Subtle Senses

By Michelle Belanger,

Book cover of The Psychic Energy Codex: A Manual For Developing Your Subtle Senses

Why this book?

While not explicitly written from a witchcraft point of view, The Psychic Energy Codex by Michelle Belanger is a highly approachable book for awakening your psychic ability and learning how to manipulate energy, which are very crucial skills for the psychic witch. Despite being a world-famous psychic and an occult researcher with encyclopedic knowledge, the way Belanger breaks everything down in this book makes the information easy to understand for even the absolute beginner. In addition, the book provides foundational techniques that are essential for any energy worker, witch or not. One of the brilliant aspects of this book is that Michelle emphasizes that everyone is wired differently energetically, perceiving and working with energy differently. As such, the author provides impressive guidance and insight to help you tailor practices to suit you so that you can effectively engage in psychic and energetic practices.
