    Wightridden is a book by Raven Kaldera. It entails specific details about horsing (a term used to describe deity possession), and various other practices concerning the communication of spirits. It gives you a pretty detailed explanation of what it takes to be a spirit-worker or as they would say..a northern tradition shaman. These practices are mostly based off of the Norse deities but sometimes they go off to explain their experiences with other deities.

    I feel that this book has helped me understand a basis of what to expect when dealing with spirits, especially fairy, deities, and various other beings you might encounter with nature. It’s given me a firm set of understandings that I’ve been involving in my everyday practice with the honoring of the Norse gods. I’ve found that this particular path is one that I have not only been seeking myself, but one I have felt called to for a very long time. While this is not your run of the mill practice; it can be dangerous and even life threatening if you do not treat the spirits you work with with up most respect. I’m finding that the deeper I go into this form of practice, the deeper I understand yet, the more I respect the diversity in the many ways the spirits or gods might work differently. This book I wouldn’t say is a must, but if you would like a understanding of this kind of practice, however restrictive..I would recommend it.

    I know many people dislike Raven Kaldera because he might appropriate certain things or say that only people chosen can perform this form of work, but I feel that this knowledge is still valuable. Raven promotes the idea of practice as the gods choose you, which does not make you special in any way. He promotes that anyone from any culture can practice a specific religion or tradition of magickal practice if the gods of that specific tradition have called to them, which I happen to agree to. Either way, it’s a very insightful book that I loved reading because it’s equipped me with a further knowledge of not only how to address spirits but to work with them.
