Consorting with Spirits: Your Guide to Working with Invisible Allies (Paperback)
“Working with spirits can be some of the most dangerous yet some of the most gratifying work a magickal practitioner can engage in. With Jason as your guide in this book, you are in some of the best hands out there when it comes to approaching and working with spirits. This is a book I wish I had fifteen years ago when I began working closely with spirits.” —Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch
Throughout history, humans have sought power and knowledge from spirits. Learning how to conjure, communicate, and negotiate with these unseen powers is one of the keys to success in magic.
Consorting with Spirits presents a detailed explanation of what spirits are, their different classifications, and how they exist in relation to the world we normally perceive. The reader will then learn a system of practices that will cultivate three main skills: The capacity to perceive spirits clearly, the ability to interact with them effectively, and the tools to deepen your relationships. It is this focus on deepening relationships and increasing clarity in communications that has been missing from much of the material about spirits.
This book will teach you different ways of interacting with spirits, from offerings and invitations to forceful conjurations. With these tools in hand, you can work with your spirit allies to achieve any goal, from protection, to wealth, to vast knowledge.
Consorting with Spirits shares:
- Proper training necessary for calling and conversing with spirits.
- How to evaluate the messages you receive.
- A full view of different modes of contact and what situations each mode lends itself to
- Why the best sorcery is local.
- The tools to establish and maintain a long-term relationship with spirits (consorting).
- The 6 different manifestations of spirits and their corresponding magickal operations, qualities, benefits, and drawbacks.
- The 4 methods of interacting with spirits: prayer, conjuring, compelling, and evocation.

“For many witches, sorcerers, magicians, and the like, working with an assortment of spirits is central to their practice. Spirit work is certainly one of the cornerstones of my practice. Jason Miller’s Consorting with Spirits is a rare treasure. This book manages to provide a sensible frame of reference for spirits, a balanced mix of levelheaded caution with confidence building encouragement, and a rational discussion of practical techniques. This book is for people that actually want to work with spirits, not just think about them. The personal experiences and insights Jason shares are gold for those that are ready to improve their practice. I am heartily recommending this book to all my students.”

“At long last—modern witchcraft has been provided what it so very much needs: a clear and concise guide to actually advancing your practice.

This will be an invaluable book to any witch wanting to progress beyond 101.”

“This latest offering from Jason Miller fills a gap in the literature of occultism that we didn't know we had. It's a plain-spoken, anecdotal guide to spirit communication but don't let the breezy approach fool you into thinking it's another pop occult book. For many people who are thinking of dipping their toe into the subject by getting practical experience, Miller's guide is a perfect (and non-denominational) companion. For those who have been studying the more academically-oriented tomes on magic, and becoming more bewildered by the hour in the mix of dead languages and dead wizards, this will clear up some of the confusion. Miller has the background and is generous with sharing his own experiences, and for that reason alone the book is worth the price of admission.”
— Peter Levenda, coauthor, Rites of the Mummy
