Dark Witchcraft as a Science and Art:

When exploring dark witchcraft, there is a distinct separation when I approach it as a science and an art. As a science, I use it as a form of a transformative psychology experience to heal my anxiety and assign meaning to lives experiences. In a past post, I mentioned creating a personal mythology. Using transpersonal psychology is based on Jungian psychology using archetypes as … Read More Dark Witchcraft as a Science and Art:

The Occult Experience

The Occult Experience  Recently I challenged myself to a question that seemed really easy to answer until I went searching for a more truthful answer.  That question was this, “Why do you study the Occult?”  Seems easy enough right? After the first responses of, “Because I do” and “It’s who I am”, I began going deeper to get to the real truth. When I … Read More The Occult Experience

Solitary Witchcraft

Solitary Witchcraft When doing research on the subject of witchcraft, a division exists between solitary witches and those who practice in covens. I love the idea of being a part of a group to share my experiences with, but the solitary path just felt right for me. This brought up the same feelings I had in the music business. I feel like my spiritual … Read More Solitary Witchcraft

Personal Mythology As A Witch’s Path:

 One thing that I obsess about is finding the perfect pantheon.  One day I’ll be focused on Greek mythology and the next day convinced that my pantheon lies in the Necronomicon.  Another approach I took was the use of “The Underworld” as a blanket term, which didn’t work either. I was trying to find myths with gods and goddesses that fit with my own … Read More Personal Mythology As A Witch’s Path:

The “W” Word

After a few rants and raves, I’ve given some time to begin my journey of coming out of the broom closet and finally start the 2nd degree. This may not seem like a big deal because I’ve been a pagan for as long as I can remember, but never a public pagan. You know what, lets not use pagan, lets use the “w” word, … Read More The “W” Word

An Upside Down Rose Cross

    For most occultists, they want to be a part of a secret society and to be trained and programed into an occult master.  For me, this was the intent of my Rosicrucian adventure.  Today, I am torn by this affiliation due to the lack of respect for free thought by many Rosicrucians while others demand the freedom to challenge, rearrange, and de-program … Read More An Upside Down Rose Cross

The Crossroads

Three Paths of The Crossroads: Nature Based: Science, Healing, Balanced Service Based: The Advancing Of Humanity Conscious Based: Mono-Mythology It’s been a while since I blogged about the occult, so here I am. When I was at the crossroads of where I wanted to go, I actually stayed stuck there for a while. It wasn’t about trying to find what I was interested in, … Read More The Crossroads

Second Degree Witchcraft

  There comes a time in every pagans journey where you hit a major wall.  Guess what, this is where I am.  The books out there are flooded with Witchcraft 101 and High Magick with nothing in between.  Being stuck here can be frustrating to say the least, on one hand I have a good idea of where I want to go but finding … Read More Second Degree Witchcraft

Before You Begin….

The theories of magick can be diverse and mean something different to each and every one of us.  For me, there are two distinctions when thinking and dealing with magick, receiving psychic energy and performing magick.  When using intuition concerning magick, there are levels of communication within yourself to consider.  The first is the idea of being psychic or empathetic to others around you … Read More Before You Begin….

Inner and Outer Witchcraft

When getting comfortable with witchcraft or any spiritual path, have a clear idea of what you want personally from it and what your community contribution should be.  For me, I label these distinctions as Black Magick for my personal journey and White Magick as my social contribution.  These are two distinct paths for me, so I follow two systems of magick. My Black Magick … Read More Inner and Outer Witchcraft

White Magick vs. Black Magick

Before we begin discussing any topics about the occult, its always a great idea to get some definitions in place and the direction you want your spiritual path to go.  When dealing with occult intentions, the terms and concepts behind white versus black, religion versus spirituality, or right hand path verses left hand path have been blurry and ill-defined.  When it comes down to … Read More White Magick vs. Black Magick
