Witchcraft, magic, and spell work are as old as time itself. But the "Sixth Sense," or mental pathway that controls thought processes, lies dormant for many women. Menopause changes all that -- and the Third Eye is free to function. In The Old Girl's Book of Spells, author Cal Garrison urges women "of a certain age" to embrace their hot flashes and understand that menopause is a portal that can take them to higher levels of consciousness.
With a sly sense of humor and the wisdom of experience, Garrison conjures guaranteed spells for all aspects of life. From conquering insomnia to dealing with almost-adult children, she offers her time-tested, old girl's tips for using the power of focused intentions to work magic.
