Re: how you open your third eye

Lots of good replies, mine may is a little different and perhaps stranger to grasp. I've never been into the whole chakra thing. So I was on a walk in the countryside and kept bringing problems to mind but each time I just seemed to let them slide off, I didn't engage with them it was 'oh well that ...

Re: Mental block

... it's kind of like if you try to discuss information with someone that an entity doesnt want you sharing... Yes I've felt this as both as gently as an Intuition and as forcefully as an imperative. Both guide you well. 'to be silent' relates to the core principles of 'occult' practice. Occult mea...

Re: Blue Moon on Samhain

Some things can only happen 'once in a blue moon'. So the Samhain blue moon sits on the cusp of a perfect opportunity to trigger a real change within your life, a long term thing you perhaps have tried to do and failed once or many times previously.

Re: Ideas or inspiration regarding a possible path?

As for settling in a path? Why bother? Let honest Intuition guide you... Learn to listen and trust it... until something draws you, celebrate being an eclectic seeker. Remember the eclectic maxim; does it work? A lot of time can be wasted chasing themes and techniques you would like to have rather t...

Re: Ideas or inspiration regarding a possible path?

When to use magic? When there is honest need, secondary to need, honest desire (and if wise after a degree of honest measured consideration to intention, reasons and consequences), used when no other avenues are apparent or have seemingly been exhausted. If you convince yourself you are not 'worthy'...

Re: Automatic Writing

If it wasn't for automatic writing a large percentage of the poetry I have written wouldn't exist nor would my entire intuitive practice, which evolved out of free-association and gestaltism (psychology). -------- Your poems make me a fraud for I have nothing to say. My prose is spun in splinters, s...

Re: Who are the Guardians in a Circle?

It's been bumped from 2013 to 2020 - the original poster has likely long gone. It's easy to miss unless you use a necro tag to warn people. Necro'ed - 'thread' necromancy; it's been brought back from the dead. Opinions differ on them, sometimes it's nice to revisit threads, especially with useful in...

Re: Who are the Guardians in a Circle

Yes it does. But I don't believe in gnomes or faeries. Could I imagine animals as the guardians? Great question. (personal opinions) I don't believe in Archangels but each of the elements are associated with one? I think precious stones are mostly magically inert (to me personally) but there are st...

Re: Omnipotence

Of most pagan 'gods'? There are half a dozen different opinions on the subject, few consider omnipotence except those who connect the smaller parts to a whole. --- However... Depends how subjectively you view power. Omnipotence would surely require a coorespondance to omnipresence - so rather then s...

Re: Voodoo magic with dolls

Creating a poppet is another act of focus and coorespondance (making an object and connecting it to the subject) within many branches of sympathetic magic.

Adding hair, nails, a photograph? Just more layers of coorespondance.

Re: Wiccan vs. Witch

@Corbin: But couldn't one say that every religion has its craft? There are almost always rituals and practices that are linked heavily to a religion. A Buddhist will most likely also have a meditation habit, a Christian often goes to church on Sundays or at holidays. I think at it's core, almost ev...

Re: Wiccan vs. Witch

Wicca as a 'thing' - both a craft and a religion - is recognised as the path developed by Gerald Gardner and Doreen Valiente. It is not the only witchcraft path to emerge when the Witchcraft laws were repealed in the 1951 in the fraudulent mediums act.... And just in case you think the UK became 'fu...

Re: Some quick advice

Be able to both laugh at and be kind to yourself but don't expect the same from others. Remember everyone is to a lesser or greater degree struggling with something. Make mistakes your lessons. Many things are subjectively good and objectively bad (or vice versa), this illustrates duality and eventu...
