Book Review – Protection Spells: Clear Negative Energy, Banish Unhealthy Influences and Embrace Your Power by Arin Murphy-Hiscock

March, 2019

Book Review
Protection Spells
Clear Negative Energy, Banish Unhealthy Influences and Embrace Your Power
by Arin Murphy-Hiscock
Published by Adams Media
224 Pages

The first thing that catches your eye about this book is the strikingly beautiful cover, but as the saying goes “never judge a book by its cover.” In this case, I can say that the content is as impressive as the cover and you will not be disappointed in reading and owning this book.

As a newcomer to the world of spellcrafting, I was pleased about the breakdown and content of the information in this book. The book is divided into three parts: Spellcrafting; Spells and Rituals; and Protective Objects. Part One explains what a spell is, how spells work and the basics regarding spellcraft; which is very useful to a newbie like me. Part Two consists of spells focusing on defense and protection and are divided into four categories. Lastly, Part Three provides the reader with three protection rituals. One for protecting a home, one for protecting an object and one for protecting a person. Protective objects are also discussed in Part Three.

In the first chapter of the book, which also serves as the Part One, types of spells are explained. This is particularly helpful to someone who has little to no knowledge of spellwork. Chapter One reinforces that the most important part of a spell is the practitioner’s will and intention to be the agent of change.

Part Two consists of four chapters each covering the following categories of spells: Body and Spirit, House and Home, Family and Friends, and Out and About. Each chapter begins with information regarding the spell category. Spell names are highlighted and written in a consistent format which is easy to read and follow. Under each individual spell is information on how or what the spell will help with followed by materials needed to execute the spell. Each highlighted area concludes with “What to Do” which is a step-by-step explanation of how to complete the spell. Tips regarding the spell may also be included in a separate highlighted information box.

Part Three consists of two chapters. Protection rituals are provided in Chapter Six. They, like the spells in the earlier chapters, follow the same familiar, easy-to-read format that the reader has come to rely on. Chapter Seven, the ?nal chapter, discusses protection objects. Protective colors, crystals, gods, saints, angels, animals, herbs and symbols are explored. This chapter is an introduction protection objects, and it gives the reader some basic information regarding these objects. It is intended for this chapter to spark the reader’s interest in wanting to learn more about protection objects.

In conclusion, Protection Spells is a well written and highly organized book that I would recommend to others. Upon completing the final chapter, I was left wanting more information. I was saddened that the book had come to an abrupt end; which is my only disappointment in reading this book. After having the opportunity to learn so much about protection spells from Ms. Murphy-Hiscock, I was left wanting a conclusion or parting words. Given the inclusive outline and impressive organization of the book, it was the one lacking piece. Overall, the lack of a parting chapter is a minor oversight given the wealth of information gained in reading this book.
