Re: So, If you get baptized, you can't go back?

Perhaps in my previous post would be better phrased 'religion is a personal choice (or a belief system). My mother was raised a Lutheran but has more faith in her makeup then religion. My parents always believed religion was a personal choice as adults and never pushed it on their children. I did th...

Re: Shadow work

Personal thoughts only - I can only comment on my own ideas, feelings and experiences (something we must all agree with). 1) Hinduism is not Witchcraft. 2) Not everyone is ready for Shadow-work / it is not suitable or even necessary for everybody. It is said that there are many paths to enlightenmen...

Re: Your daily/evening rituals?

I would often in the past use a variation of Starhawks tree grounding meditation and have internalised many of those key visualisations and processes for grounding that I still used and are relevant below. It's a good place to start. LINK https://youtu.be/FP5F5y0xUhQ I also practice energy work to s...

Re: So, If you get baptized, you can't go back?

If I was circumcised as a baby to Jewish parents does that mean I have to adhere to the Jewish faith? Did I make a choice in faith? Two words: absolute bunkum. Belief is a personal choice, faith is a gift - despite what all the sham gurus and mealy-mouthed, holier then thou, peddlers of faith may pr...

Re: Hestia

A pure virgin being a 'chaste' or sexually abstinent virgin.

The term virgin meant something quite different in the past compared to its modern interpretation and usage: virgin, did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence.

Re: All truths are but what?

(personal musings only) There are subjective truths and objective truths, paradoxes and alignment. Example? Objectively death is a wonderful thing (imagine a world without endings); subjectively death is (usually) a terrible thing. But what seems like a fight is actually a dance. Look for the questi...

Re: How to describe magick to non practitioners??

Mental meander ahead... To spit out the pith? I ask myself 'why would I want to explain it to non-practitioners'? And then 'Why would they want me to explain'? Do they want a neat box they can put it in. But it doesn't fit. Do they want to absolve themselves from any real personal effort or original...

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...
