    A delightful in-depth guide to the divination practices of conjure from the beloved author of Old Style Conjure and other booksIn Divination Conjure Style Starr Casas shares the secrets of conjure-style divination that she learned at home and that, until very recently, were family secrets that were only transmitted orally. Traditional conjure is the domain of the poor and disenfranchised, living in regions that were (and remain) unfriendly to esotericism and the occult. Thus, conjure divination relies on inexpensive tools that are not exclusively magical: playing cards, rather than tarot cards, or scrying with blue water instead of a crystal ball.The primary focus of Divination Conjure Style is playing-card divination, but other methods covered include bibliomancy, pyromancy, pendulums, and throwing the bones. Starr discusses the history of these methods and also offers practical information so that the reader can master these techniques for themselves. Josef Bailey, a young New Orleans artist, has created illustrations of conjure-style playing cards to Starr’s specifications.

    These carefully selected poems will offer solace; provide an escape from the constant chatter of everyday thought; help make space for the unexpected; enable us to reinvent ourselves within the chaotic landscape of our lives. Some will be old favourites; others less well-known; all the poems will have the power to surprise or move. 
     
    A deeper, more lasting comfort comes from art that makes us sit up and listen, that reawakens the senses and offers new ways of looking - this is poetry that, in the best sense, unsettles us, in order to reconnect us with the world around us and bring us to a place of greater clarity. 
     
    The anthology will be divided into the following sections: The deep heart's core (poems about places of sanctuary); As a boy I stood before it for hours (poems that remind us to place our focus 'out there'; that show us how to be mindful); A world in a grain of sand (poems that play with the notion of scale, so that the tiny becomes large and the large tiny - putting things in perspective); Stilll life (poems about focusing on a specific moment); and Another Self (poems on friendship/companionship; a sense of everyone being in the same boat).

People are depressed, miserable, and hate their daily routine, feeling as if their life's purpose doesn't exist.For the most part, a major contributing factor is that you stay in your comfort zone and don't try to grow as an individual. Another part is that your mind is too fixated onThe best thing you can do for yourself in times of doubt, sadness, and unfulfillment is to focus your thoughts inward and try

    The Property Insider's Guide to...

    Since Carol Tallon wrote the first edition of the Irish Property Buyers’ Handbook back in 2011, the property market in Ireland has changed. More importantly, the world has changed, particularly in how information is consumed. Property buyers need access to the most up-to-date, reliable and immediate information when the time comes to start searching for that ideal property or when it’s time to put in the winning offer. There isn’t always time to get to a bookshop, or to wait for an online order to be delivered, or to wade through lots of helpful though not necessarily relevant content to answer that one pressing property query or to help guide you through one particular stage of the buying process. For times like these, the Property Insider’s Guide series has an ebook for you. This ebook looks at property negotiation. Property negotiation does not have to be feared – it is simply a part of the process of buying a home. Like all processes, it requires input from the buyer and some level of focus to achieve positive results. Pre-negotiation is the starting point. Research – and legwork – will show where properties may be available at below market value, an immediate source of equity in a property. You’ll get lots of Nos – but all you need is one Yes. Learn the different styles of negotiation – and how to react to each. Understand that the best deal for the seller is not necessarily the highest price. Flexibility on closing dates or on storage of furniture for a period after the sale – or even simply that you’re respectful and more pleasant to deal with – may well be more important. You need to understand the seller’s motivations and match your offer to them. Offer accepted, you have one last chance to negotiate a better deal. The structural survey – an essential for every property purchase – may provide opportunities. But remember, if the seller has already come down a long way from their asking price, they will be understandably reluctant to give more in cash terms. But as noted at the offer stage, cash isn’t everything – a little give and take is always possible between a willing seller and a willing buyer. Good luck with your property negotiations!
