Welcome to Jesa Macbeth's Bookstore

The Book Page


The Faeries' Oracle is different from all other oracles because it is a living oracle - the faeries themselves are our guides. The book and cards are to help you to communicate with the otherworld folk in a variety of ways.
Rather than quote a chapter from the book here in these pages, I've tried to "supplement" the book with other thoughts about Faery and my experiences with its inhabitants. So, what I'll do here instead is to show you five cards (chosen by the faery folk themselves), quote the book about them, and perhaps add a few additional comments, now that I've had another year to play with them since the book was completed.

This book and card set is available in good bookstores everywhere. It is also available on line at such places as Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Barnesandnoble.com, and other good online bookstores. Simon & Schuster, ISBN 0-7432-0111-6. Here is a link to The Faeries' Oracle page on Amazon.com.



I have several other books and projects planned about the Otherworld of Faery. This link takes you to descriptions of them and my other faery pages, including a chapter that didn't make it into the Faeries' Oracle for reasons of unavailable space.


Moon Over Water is a practical, user-friendly book on meditation for both beginners and more experienced meditators. It describes the meditative process, offers suggestions on overcoming our obstacles to meditation, and gives specific meditation exercises so that readers can choose what works best for them. Special attention is also given to grounding and centering, both in meditation and in daily life. No matter what you want to do on your spiritual path - healing, psychic work, devotional activities, growth work - a committed meditation practice will help you to do it better, and it will help you to live a less stressed, healthier, and more joyful life. All of the practical stuff you need to know is here, and this book explains everything I couldn't include in my web pages on meditation - and that's rather a lot really.
Although there is no substitute for a good personal teacher, this book comes close and is used by many meditation and study groups as a guide to their practice. The chapters are in bite-sized pieces, and you can read three of them here.
2. Treasures Found by the Wayside
Practical and psychological benefits of meditation.
3. Treasures of the Psyche and Spirit
Some of the more subtle benefits of meditation.
17. Beginning the Journey
Creating rituals to help with meditation.

How can you get hold of this wonderful book? Moon Over Water is currently out of print. It will be back in print again, but I don't have a date for that yet. It is hard to find it secondhand and it tends to be expensive - more than the new price usually. You can look at Amazon.com for secondhand listings on the Moon over Water page. You may be able to get it in foreign languages though, if that is any help. Moon Over Water is available in English, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, and German as follows:

Sun Over Mountain is a book about fantasy, the art of imagination, and the power we have to create our lives, and it is written as a training course. You don't have to use it that way, but I hope you will - partly because I think you will get much more out of it, and also, because I think you will have much more fun with it.
It is a guide to using imagery work and visualization to help you to understand and transform your inner world, which then usually transforms your outer world. Sun over Mountain is written to be used as a course workbook, either for a group or an individual. Partly, it's to teach you about imagery - what it is, how it works, and how to use it to facilitate growth and healing in your life. In addition, Sun Over Mountain is a guide to a personal process of self-healing, left brain/right brain integration, and the enhancement of creativity. Like Moon Over Water, the individual chapters are not long.

    1. You, the Magician
    This is a very short introduction that gives you some idea of the slant of the book.
    21. Observation Skills
    Many people have difficulties with "visualization" but that need not stop us from doing powerful imagery work. The imagery journey in this chapter shows us how to use all of our senses as we travel.
    64. Imagic
    Rediscovering the secrets and magic of our imagination and our inner images.
