Just a simple introduction to say hi and maybe make some friends. I have studied for years, have felt a calling of the occults all my life and decided to work on meditation, energy work, visuilation and gain as much knowledge as possible before doing spell work. I felt ready to do spell work long ago, and I have done plenty and feel comfortable doing so, but I guess now I feel its time to step it up with more devotion to practicing much more often. I don't talk to anyone else that is into the occults so I figured I would see if I could find positive, like-minded people here and experience more of the social part of it and expand my growth... while maybe being blessed enough to help others out as well.
Nice to meet you also and I'm glad to hear... er... read it ;) I was lead back to the occults, strangely enough, through the study of science (particle sciences, quantum physics, etc) and it just felt right to me... like coming home again. I remembered then about astral traveling as a kid and the work with magic I would do before I ever knew what magic was. It just made sense for me to work inside and learn before going crazy with spells. I feel it has proved the best path for me... and what I would suggest anyone new to magic to do.
Thank you Shadow born, I might take you up on that. While I have a deck and write most of my own spells and feel that I have had great success, I am always up for more information. I know there are things that come up in both of those practices that i would like suggestions on or advice. Thanks again
