Arcane secrets and Occult lore of the Ancient Mexicans and Maya
A thrilling journey through Tezcatlipoca’s smoky mirror
Author Lewis Spence was no doubt one of the most prolific hybrids of a researcher and occultist that ever lived. Magic and Mysteries of Mexico is, in his own words an: “effort to include in one volume all that is known regarding the arcane knowledge and occult lore of the ancient Mexican peoples and their neighbours, the Maya of Central America and Yucatan…”
This book saw the light after no less than 35 years of research. Published in 1932 the efforts of Spence are still of actual value for anyone who wants to get a solid grip on this selected body of secrets. Whether you are inspired by Carlos Castaneda, Mexican magic, witchcraft, mythology or Mayan astrology, this volume may be the missing manual you’ve always been looking for. The Mexican gods and demons are all put in clear perspectives. Everything from the naguals and sorcery to Mexican witchcraft, including the witch-mother Tlazolteotl, Devil worship, fairies, demon bats and lightning dogs is discussed. The echos of the Aztec, Maya and Toltec civilizations are clearly outlined.
