How to Investigate, Communicate, and Clear Spirits

Whether you are intrigued with the world of spirits, are a ghost hunter, or are being bothered by a pesky poltergeist, The Witch's Guide to the Paranormal is a complete toolkit for accessing the world of the incorporeal. This is the first modern book that I've found that blends a witch's spiritual practice with practical tools for dealing with hauntings. With helpful advice for clearing, cleansing, shielding, communicating with, and eradicating entities, witches will feel empowered to explore the world of ghosts and paranormal investigators will learn traditional techniques for taking charge of spirit interactions. J. Allen Cross has created the perfect book for witchy ghost hunters everywhere.--Madame Pamita, author of Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft, The Book of Candle Magic, and Madame Pamita's Magical Tarot

Please believe me: you need this book. We all do! That is, all of us who have ever wanted to know more about dealing with spirits, ghosts, entities, and other things that go bump in the night. In the most down-to-earth way possible, J. Allen Cross gives you the prerequisites, orients you to the dynamics, and furnishes you with the practices you need to get your foot in the door with paranormal investigation, improving vibrations in a space, and affecting positive change in the invisible realm. And he presents it all with an encouraging, motivational, 'you've got this' sort of vibe. It's an instant classic: essential reading for all magical practitioners.--Tess Whitehurst, author of Magical Housekeeping and The Good Energy Book

When you're a Paranerd, you never know when someone might want your help dealing with a ghostly tenant, or trying to get rid of some funky energy that just won't go away, or simply needing an open-minded shoulder to lean on. You don't need to be a practicing witch to benefit from this handbook, and it should definitely be on the shelf of any paranormal investigator who is just beginning their journey into the world of Spirit.--Patrick Keller, host of Big Séance podcast

J. Allen Cross uses straightforward and engaging prose to navigate the oftentimes provocative topic of bridging Witchcraft with explorations of the supernatural. Cross's personal experience fuels his take on the basics of Witchcraft, mediumship, paranormal investigation, and, importantly, the practical aspect of working with clients in this field. Powerful and inclusive, The Witch's Paranormal Handbook shines with knowledge!--Lawren Leo, author of Horse Magick and Dragonflame

J. Allen Cross has written an insightful and unique book on the field of paranormal investigation, which is magical! So many texts have been written on the subject, but none that I am aware of come from the viewpoint of a witch using the tools of the Craft. This book is a must-read for paranormally curious minds, even for nonpractitioners like myself. Highly recommended!--Jim Harold, host of The Paranormal Podcast and Jim Harold's Campfire

The Witch's Guide to the Paranormal helps practitioners of all skill levels...utilize their magic and energy work in the paranormal field. By breaking down smoke cleansing, grounding, and how to build their own magic toolkit, J. Allen Cross gives practitioners ways to observe and interact with the unseen world. The ghost hunting field has come a long way in the last twenty years, and The Witch's Guide to the Paranormal shows that there are more paths to interacting with spirits than what is seen in modern media.--Eilfie Music, occultist researcher for A&E's TV show Paranormal State
