Megan Rose, Ph.D. shares how to have an intimate relationship with otherworldly beings in her new book Spirit Marriage.
Exploring the phenomenon of the spirit spouse or spirit lover–an entity to which a human is psychically bonded–Megan Rose, Ph.D., examines the practice and purpose of spirit marriage around the world, presenting transcultural evidence of this form of sacred union in anthropological research, religious literature, mythology, folklore, and the oral tradition. She shares her in-depth interviews with ten contemporary practitioners of spirit marriage, including a Faery Seer, a Shakta Tantric, a West African Shrine Keeper, a New Orleans Voodoo Mambo, Haitian Vodou practitioners, and a ceremonial magician. Through these respectful interviews, the spirit-marriage practitioners tell their stories of initiation and having a spouse who is both otherworldly and able to assist in waking-world activities. In addition, they offer intimate insight into this growing global practice and its larger evolutionary purpose. We learn about their experiences of first contact, the decision to marry, how their community upholds the relationship, and the impact on their other relationships. We also learn about the risks and challenges, as well as one example of divorcing a spirit.
Sharing her personal experience, the author discusses in detail her marriage, including the erotic nature of being “spirit-filled” and her encounters with her Faery beloved. She explains how to cultivate a marriage to a spirit, sharing precautions and practices to spiritually prepare yourself, interpret your paranormal encounters, and navigate the potential challenges of this type of marriage.
