Many occult, pagan groups have illogical, biased, and negative views about duality and binary relationships. Occult groups, in general, tend to be overly emotional, resentful of authority not derived from some form of occultism they arbitrarily hold as a standard, insecure, and are uncomfortable around any narratives that do not fit their biases. There is an implicit attitude that people who do not share your views should not be in your space, and that people who make you feel uncomfortable should not be in your space. Furthermore, there is a tendency to justify this narrative by depicting other people who Read More
In fiction and fantasy, magical characters can shape magical forces into constructs of physical forces. For example, Raven from DC Comics can create constructs from the dark energy of her soul form, Constantine can throw fireballs, and Zatanna can summon swords. Evocation in the Dresden Files specifically refers to conjuring blasts of fire, shields of air, and other forms of magical constructs that are physical things. When trying to give physicality to a magical or psychic construct, many people are unable to get it to physically interact with anything, and based on that lack of interaction, some people conclude that Read More
Debates around morality and ethics are frequent discussions in occult and magical communities. These arguments are so common that some occult communities forbid arguments and discourse on magic that appears to violate a person’s agency. Some rules ban working magic on someone without their consent, albeit it is unenforceable strictly from the perspective of being a rule of a platform. Enfolded into these conversations is whether magic has rules or if karma exists. Examples are arguments about whether people should or should not use magic to curse people or influence people such as to coerce or negate their ability to Read More
I have been avoiding making a post like this because I am still friends with one of the co-owners of PSC (Psionic Social Club) and I just don’t like the idea of something like this being on here. But because of the constant defamation, slander, and lying about me by the admins of that community, I have decided to create this post to address it. Read More
People frequently ask about the nature of magic, subtle energy, or psychic phenomena within occult and paranormal groups. Many paranormal communities, cultures, and pedagogies attempt to answer that question from the pragmatics and cultural frameworks of their respective paradigms. How different places and authors decide to answer these questions tends to be derived from a cultural perspective so that the answer is predicated by how cultures and communities do things. In many communities, a belief that cultural traditions predicate magic is so prevalent that many people in magical and occult communities expect people to practice some form of magic derived Read More
Fearless_Oil wrote: Are runes inherently magical?… I was wondering if runes are inherently magical. If not, then why do people use them instead of making their own symbols? I wrote: No, they are not. People use them because they’re told to and it’s convenient. Fearless_Oil wrote: So from my personal understanding of magic and consciousness, something only works if you believe it works. Yet when I search this subreddit, people report greater success when using runes. Is this because people feel safer and more confident when using runes, or is it because of the reasons the person above stated? I Read More

You guys are always so quick to declare “it’s not better just because it’s older!” but utterly fail to comprehend the exact opposite is also true. You want “cutting edge”? Then follow Dee’s example, learn the Old Magick, contact the spirits, and ask them to teach you something new. That’s how it’s supposed to work.” –Aaron Leitch Too good to not pass on… I wrote: Stop trying to find “cutting edge” magick, get off your ass, and learn the magick Read More
Dunabu wrote: The nature and ramifications of the “aether” by which telepathy is possible. Long story short, I’ve finally tapped into this thing, but I understand very little of its nature. What is it? All energy? Does this prove consciousness is a non-local phenomena? Is death even really real?… …By the way, anyone have any legit books or resources about telepathy/psionics? I must learn more theory and know everything!… I wrote: Dunabu wrote: …by which telepathy is possible… Does this prove consciousness is a non-local phenomena?

Gaffluence wrote: Is magick even real?… Isn’t it just shifting ones focus and subconscious expectations, invoking parts of ones own psyche and enacting archtypes? Or does the woo-woo such as “sit on a rock on the second saturday of the month while holding lavendar from yosemite” have tangible effects? And what about what Tesla said about energy, frequency and vibration; how does that play into it?… I wrote: Gaffluence wrote: And what about what Tesla said about energy, frequency and vibration; how does that play into it?

There’s technically no reason to charge a sigil. A sigil is nothing more than a symbol. A symbol is just a categorization of things that are referenced. When I say car or book, I am creating a category where I am stating that things that fit the criteria of those categories do so such that they can be placed within that category and thus treated as extensional members. This means there is a relationship between objects in that category and that category – the symbol. Think of an arrow being drawn from the sigil/symbol to whatever the sigil is about. Read More
