Yup.. plus his stuff is step by step so you can actually read and do while reading and so on. The best part is he is focusing on divination..

Like Hoodou, Wicca, Celtic, Nordic and so many other options? Do you feel a sensation, a pull? I have originally asked my Lunar Angel "D" to help me with magick, but it doesn't feel fair if I dump all of the work on her. I wanna do my own research and when I can hear, see and understand spirits, my magickal understanding will be smooth sailing.
I guess the only way to know is to start doing one and see what you like or dont like about it and then find what others have to offer that has what you like and dont have what you dont like. Get what i mean? the other thing is the cultural. Which culture resonates with you and which culture is around you. I will say look into your family ancestry and start from there. Practice what your "root" has normally makes you feel more "at home". If you don't like, then go for those you can get your hands on.. aka.. the community near to you so you can always get the stuff and help and teaching needed. If that fails only you start looking further. All in all... start and then assess if it fits and then look for one who fits you better.

Feeling energy is important and i can imagine him saying "Qi Gong! Qi Gong! Qi Gong!" in my head right now =.=" .... and also "reiki! reiki! reiki! gtummo! gtummo! gtummo!..." but the qi gong definitely sounds louder in my head :P I better run before he strikes me with a thunder bolt
On another hand, I think divination or some sort of communication is also as important if not more. Knowing what is around you, who is around you and what best you can do to compliment those around you (the obvious and the subtle stuff) is always going to be beneficial. Imagine you are doing something that the "local spirits" does not like. You are going to face an uphill battle and so on. Learning to divine and get answers from any sources is going to help you a long way
