High Magick, in general, invokes great spiritual energy and power and usually does not concern itself with Nature. It uses complex rituals and symbolic invocations of deities, dramatic ceremonial wardrobe, and complex concoctions such as those used within Alchemy. Ceremonial or Ritual Magick is a good example of high magick and concerns itself with the conscious application of willpower to achieve one's individual or a group's spiritual objectives. Books are a wonderful reference tool, especially when you are learning to use your intuition. Whichever herb, crystal or oil you are drawn to can be cross referenced and checked with the relevant book. This way you will quickly learn the uses of items you are drawn to. Books have such value for the beginner and experienced craft practitioner alike.
