    It s very hard to rate a book that covers how one person relates to and feels about her goddess Who am I to judge It s just that I found the writing style to be a tad dramatic and I had to dig to find real substance around Hekate that didn t feel anecdotal A good read for me during Samhain to honour Hekate and realise how deep she can be brought into my life.

    This is a tricky book There were plenty of things here that didn t quite strike me as true, as a lot of this is based on the author s personal ideas about Hecate, which says at least as much about her as it does about the deity, herself I might have rated this lower if the bulk of the book hadn t driven me to develop my own personal conception of Hecate, which wasn t quite the same as the one presented here, but wasn t entirely different, either The writing might have been toned down a bit, s This is a tricky book There were plenty of things here that didn t quite strike me as true, as a lot of this is based on the author s personal ideas about Hecate, which says at least as much about her as it does about the deity, herself I might have rated this lower if the bulk of the book hadn t driven me to develop my own personal conception of Hecate, which wasn t quite the same as the one presented here, but wasn t entirely different, either The writing might have been toned down a bit, since not everything is insane or erotic or both at the same time , but despite that, this was a worthwhile read

    This has been one of the best reads I have had of a spiritual book It is a short read, and I made myself read it slowly as it is a devotional, and this is a devotional like no other I have read It pulls you into the feeling of the Goddess, it gave me goosebumps at times I recommend this to anyone following a Goddess path,even if you don t follow Her.

    Good poetry and writing on what Hekate means to the author This was an excellent read, and very much worth thinking over.

    The addition A Devotional should have alerted me to it perhaps, but there is an overwhelming amount of inaccuracies in this book or leaflet since the Pagan Portals books are all very short, leaflet is perhapsaccurate The author s personal religious feelings and interpretations notwithstanding, there is still, you know an actual HISTORY of the origins, creation, purpose of this Goddess How and why she was worshipped, invoked, etc pp Disappointing read but unsurprisingly so.

    Vivienne Moss Hekate A Devotional is part grimoire, part poetry, part devotional and part spiritual diary There are many published books on Hekate, most of them scholarly, academic or historical This on the other hand is not that The book is a time capsule containing mostly the relationship between Hekate and the author, a solitary hedge witch from Indiana Sharing personal gnosis is a brave and vulnerable gift to the world, especially when it goes against what is established about a deity Vivienne Moss Hekate A Devotional is part grimoire, part poetry, part devotional and part spiritual diary There are many published books on Hekate, most of them scholarly, academic or historical This on the other hand is not that The book is a time capsule containing mostly the relationship between Hekate and the author, a solitary hedge witch from Indiana Sharing personal gnosis is a brave and vulnerable gift to the world, especially when it goes against what is established about a deity Yet this book is not about fanciful reveries or made up information, it is about the living spirit of Hekate in today s age and much of it can be verified by the personal gnosis of other practitioners, even if it does not abide by history s records.Much of this book breaks the orthodoxy of the established history of Hekate, which is part of what I loved about this book Humans often like to put things into nice and orderly boxes, including the gods themselves However, if there s one deity who defies dogma, orthodoxy and established rules it is most definitely Hekate From fighting with the Olympians against her fellow Titans in the Titanomarchy to being the patron goddess of witches and outcast who defy conventional norms She appears in extreme different forms and aspects throughout culture to culture and time period to time period The vast spirit who is Hekate always challenges preconceived notions of who she is She is not some relic of ancient history but rather a living spirit who shifts within history from Titan to Goddess to World Soul to Witch Queen.I have found Hekate within this book, many of the experiences paralleling my own and many that were very different than mine This includes many experiences that I have not read in any other book While it is a small book at only 96 pages, the book itself is brim full of soul It is completely evident to me as a devotee of Hekate that Vivienne is indeed in contact with Her While an oddity amongst my other books on Hekate it is perhaps one of my favorites for this reason

    About 63% of this book is a devotional to the goddess Hekate, and the popular opinion is that this exempts the writing from, well, being coherent, I guess I m sure this will be an unpopular opinion, but I did not like this book, I didn t benefit from it as I thought I would, and I certainly wouldn t recommend it This is full of convoluted, flowery writing that rambles on and on without any information or, seemingly, any point except to seem arcane There are a lot of things capitalized as if t About 63% of this book is a devotional to the goddess Hekate, and the popular opinion is that this exempts the writing from, well, being coherent, I guess I m sure this will be an unpopular opinion, but I did not like this book, I didn t benefit from it as I thought I would, and I certainly wouldn t recommend it This is full of convoluted, flowery writing that rambles on and on without any information or, seemingly, any point except to seem arcane There are a lot of things capitalized as if they are key points or important but then never explained This book gets harder to read the deeper I got because it is was giving me very little in actual substance The writing went around in circles, repeating itself, repeating the titles, repeating the name, and yet, making no sense at all If you are looking to learn about the goddess Hekate, find another book, what you seek will not be here I mostly ended up using the last two pages, the recommended reading, the most, to build up a small library of books on my kindle to read that would hopefully give me actual information and substance and less roundabouts

    First of all this is a full on personal gnosis book so don t go into it hoping for many historical facts and such It s a book for those who want insight on how a devotee and priestess of Hekate works And it s so good I loved it You can FEEL the love and devotion that the author has for Hekate and that is so so beautiful, I loved it In the beginning and end of each section there s always a prayer or some personal text that makes it evenbeautiful and the author explains how her practice First of all this is a full on personal gnosis book so don t go into it hoping for many historical facts and such It s a book for those who want insight on how a devotee and priestess of Hekate works And it s so good I loved it You can FEEL the love and devotion that the author has for Hekate and that is so so beautiful, I loved it In the beginning and end of each section there s always a prayer or some personal text that makes it evenbeautiful and the author explains how her practice works, how she sees and works and connects with the Goddess It s a really good book to get a nice view of someone s practice and it s wonderful to draw inspiration from Many times this book inspired me to just stop and meditate or take time to acknowledge Hekate s presence in my life and that s a beautiful thing for a book to do I recommend this if you re a devotee or interested in the Goddess Hekate since I think it can help greatly for individual practice and inspiration It s truly a gift to Hekate from the author
