Default The Dangers of the Occult.

IMHO, Avoid the occult if you are bipolar, BPS. Depressed or riddled with Anxiety. For a well-balanced person, the occult can be dangerous and unsettling but for a delicately balanced like us, it is an incredibly bad idea and can drive a person to psychosis, anxiety and heavy manic/insomniac episode.
This is not based on any religious or philosophical bases but my own personal experience as an Enchanter (Tim).

Wink Re: The Dangers of the Occult.

Thanks for mentioning this. I don't believe in much of anything anymore... certainly not the occult. However many years ago, when I was young, I was into this stuff. In retrospect I simply consider it to have been a muddled waste of time & mental energy that led me down some very sick & damaging paths.

Default Re: The Dangers of the Occult.

It is a natural human trait to get curious and want power. Especially recent pagan, Wicca practices are on the TV and more and more coming out of the Woodwork (at least in the US).

After I had a hard landing, break with the spiritual teacher I had for 3-years, I meandered and eventually got into the occult. Especially Sigil magic. Then all of a sudden I had the weird notion that I was the reincarnated Austin Spare the artist magician who passed away in 1956, the year I was born. There were uncanny similarities -likes, dislikes, art and magic as traits that were perhaps passed on. Or the whole thing was a coincidence? At any rate, this is a good way to become manic with borderline psychosis.

After this episode, I have realized that paradoxically power comes to those who surrender to the fact that it cannot be gotten.
