Making sense of the symbolism of Seidh

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

As I just posted, I was involved in a Seidh ritual this week.  I thought it might be interesting to look at some of the material that I received during this ritual as a way of exploring the difficulty of interpreting symbolic and intuitively received material. A problem which can really plague occultists. One issue […]

An experiment with Seidh

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

This week I was able to take part in my first Seidh ritual. Seidh is a form of Norse shammanism that involves a seer entering a trance, journeying to the underworld, and receiving visions in order to answer the questions of the participants and hopefully give useful advice. I'm lucky enough to have a close […]

Maybe they are(n't) out to get us

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

Just one final dump of conspiracy theory related ideas before I get back to the magick and Tarot stuff that you're probably actually here for: I was wondering a while back about the seemingly higher prevalence of conspiracy theorists in America compared to the UK. Part of this is certainly cultural – the myth of […]

Conspiracy theories can strike down even the cool amongst us

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

I previously wrote about why I think occultists are more prone to getting the conspiracy theory bug, but I think there are more reasons than I outlined in my previous post. One recent experience was instructive. As I've mentioned before, I'm a big fan of the baptist's head project. Smart, insightful, dedicated magickians doing really worthwhile work, and recording […]

There's information everywhere

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

One of the ideas that I've been playing with for a while is that the Universe is constantly bombarding us with information. Information which is of direct use to us, which is designed to ease our path and make it easier for us to progress in life. Quite often I get asked 'how does the […]

Just because it's channeled doesn't make it true

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

One of the things that makes my heart sink is when I read that a particular spiritual technique, or a particular belief system, or a particular 'truth' was received by 'channeling'.  I hear too many people accepting channeled information at face value – if a particular idea was 'channeled from the Archangel Gabriel' then that's […]

Great books about spirituality, tarot and magick

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

On the main site I've added a list of books about magick, Tarot and spirituality.  These are all books that I own and love for one reason or another. Since first becoming interested in these topics I've found that whilst many, many books have been written, really very few good books have ever graced our […]

Porn and ESP, together at last

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Now if this isn't a near perfect combination of topics to attract my attention, I don't know what is.  Scientists are Cornell University have been using porn as part of an experiment to see whether subjects had any ability to predict future events.  Simply they had to predict whether a blank screen or a porn […]
