Victor Vasnetsov – The Magic Carpet


I was wondering what kind of article I can write for this website. And then it just hit me – there are so many categories and topics here, so many things Aline is talking about, why not merge them all together?

I begun my adventure with the supernatural in 2005. I am definitely young explorer of the paranormal, but I already know a few things. What was it that I begun with? Psionics – a little bit  of a fluffy and childish approach to psychic development. But I wanted more, so from fluffy websites I moved to reading books, from there to occult practices – different systems, from Tai Chi meditation to Norse Runes, from Shamanism to Chaos Magick. With time, all of this merged into one thing. No longer was I talking about different systems, different practices. The terms became worthless, and even troubling as I was talking with people.

Everyone got their own set of terms. I was unable to communicate with Chaos mages, Wiccans thought I was a vampire, vampires thought I was just an asshole, but most people thought I had no idea what I was talking about – while in reality, they were those who had no idea what the occult really is. Not all of them, of course, I’ve met many people who thought like me.

For me, shamanism, psychic abilities, chaos magick, Norse runes, tarot — all of this is the same thing. They are  the same kinds of occult practices – using our will to use some supernatural energies to shape the universe we live in as we want it, or at least -to perceive the universe using extraordinary means – like divination systems (runes, tarot, i ching) or psychic abilities, different forms of clairvoyance.

Needful Things

It is my belief that people who think that ancient shaman and modern Chaos mage perform different occult arts, those people are simple wrong and there are  a lot more for them to learn. Every single occult practice is based on four elements:

The Place:

Needs to be prepared for the practice. Occult orders usually create whole temples, modern psychic vampyres simple cleanse the place of negative energies, Wiccan creates altars, psychics turned one room into simple meditative space. This creates a place where higher energies are created. And these enrages support the occult art process.

The Energy:

There are so many terms: PSI, Ki, Chi, Prana, Kia, Odic Force, Ethers and many more. But these terms represent the very same energy, the energy that cannot be easily defined, but the energy that is used to shape the universe (telekinesis, law of attraction, different forms of occult spells), and transfer information (telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, astral projections).

The Goal :

What do you want to achieve? What is your goal? It is something we want, it might be a wish to send a telepathic message to a friend, or attract $10 000 USD within next 24 hours. The goal is what we want to achieve while sitting in specific place, using specific energies, with…

The Will:

The power that shapes the universe and our life. When you have the goal, the will the  I really want this to happen and the power to make it happen.

Those are four primary elements of every occult practice. If you will look closer, you will find all these elements in every magical or psychical system in existence.

Choosing Your Occult System


Everyone of us have to choose the system to follow – some people choose Wicca, some Chaos Magick, some becomes psychics, and some mix all the systems there are. As one wise magus said,  “With time each one of us creates his own practical system.”

If the principles are all the same, there is really no difference which system you will choose.

But you need to  feel the system. That is  where some books come to be – for example, I do not really feel good with modern occult systems, but I read some books about Hebrew occultism, and I was always fascinated with Norse mythology. In my practice I often use Hebrew rites, and I am a big fan of runes, I have implemented some rites from Runic Magick in my own practice.

These are the archetypes, and you should read a lot of books in order to find out which archetype speaks to you. Thor is a god of War, but I prefer Thor over Mars from Roman mythology – although these are the same archetypes, I respond better to Thor – therefore, my occult practices gives me better results, only because I perceive Norse archetypes as more powerful and more real. Someone else would say I’m nuts, because the only real spirits are these from The Goetia. But the reality is – we’re still dealing with the same archetypes.

The same thing relates to divination – I prefer Norse Runes over Tarot cards, but I don’t think either of these systems is better than the other one. Some people prefer Tarot because they feel it – I don’t feel the cards, I feel the Runes.

Terminology is the Source

The source of all problems. I do not say we should create ultimate set of terms for all occult practices, it is impossible. But based on this article, you must understand that you need to keep an open mind. Never assume that someone is lying or have no idea what he’s talking about, or he is just wrong. Discuss the case, try to get to the bottom of things. If I say PSI and someone from India will say Prana, I will simplified things in such manner, so the guy will know that what he calls Prana, I call PSI. You get it?

Because at the source, all things are the same – you say tomato, I say tomato. With hundreds of years, different terms and names has been created to represent the same things. Around different terms, different systems of beliefs has been created. But at the very core, it’s all the same – the place, the energy, the goal and the will to shape the universe. This creates magick, this creates the occult philosophy.

People face problems without understanding this – they practice psychic abilities, and they wonder if they should start practicing some magick system, and vice versa. Let me tell you something: As long as the occult system works for you – stick with it. After all, what matters the most, is the result of your practice. Everything else is just the language that is too limited to explain what we really think…

  1. Great post Nathan. Like you, I too have read about tarot, psychic abilities and so forth. But in the end I settled on the i-ching because it felt right for me. It could also be due to my asian background. In the end, it’s not the means but what you do with it that matters.

  2. This si great, thanks a lot for the simplicity this so difficult and long path topic has been explained in this article.
    I enjoyed it again. I hope I will be able to encounter other sources like this blog (I mean, like Arlene), masters that will make me understand what I really need what is the thing that work best with me etc.

    I think this article is also a little big metaphore for life. We all are in a huge mslla world witha huge number of people, when we don’t understand each other is just because we suppose we are different but in the truth we just have really to listen and we will allways find a way to communicate.

    This themes about will power place .. I have been in touch with these items in the last weeks, and months. And it is true… it works.

  3. Would like to find more about these readings…we I suppose have to choose our randomly but maybe they can be also suggested…but I don’t if this is a forcing and is bad…prboably is better to choose freely.
    Just wanted to know what are these books you are talking about. I want to order for example a book from radomir ristic.

    Please note:
    Anyway the final link does not work.

  4. Merry Xmas. Let all your wishes may occur real for you and your friends and family and also let us hope your next year end up being successful for everyone us all. Merry Christmas

  5. I was advised your blog by using the cousin. Now i’m now not convinced whether or not it post is usually compiled by technique of your ex as no one realize this sort of highly accurate pertaining to our problems. That you are incredible! Many thanks!
