I'm an old guy who does not usually use such a platform for such subject matters but I feel motivated to do so now. Last time I tried was approximately ten years ago and it did not go over so well. I came off as an arrogant preacher guy. I'm really not trying to be, but I do have my opinions on the whole occult study. But keep in mind that they are just my opinion and I don't feel that they are God's truth or anything like that. Okay on to my story. It is going to be an abridge version as it is about 20 years old and I don't want it to get too wordy.
I was raised by parents who themselves where involved in the occult, or more exact, the mystical. They where members of AMORC. For those of you don't know what AMORC is:
So when I turned 17 I joined the order as well. I am still a member, as well as a member of TMO.
When I was just starting out in AMORC I had psychic road signs as I call them, that let me know I had the potential to walk the path if I so chose. These road signs included objects moving around me without touching them, seeing things such as aura and other nifty stuff. So I did and I have been loving it ever sense.
Okay on to why I'm here. (this is where it gets a little preachy, sorry folks)
I really feel that the method of people learning and dealing with psychic "phenomenon " is a lot of the time not the most efficient method. I feel that people who are trying to learn how to use their psychic abilities by just looking at exercises on the net or books, but are not part of an actual school of the occult are doing themselves a disservice. Now, I'm not here to say my school is the best. There are plenty of great traditions out there besides the two that I belong to. The point is that being a present and paying member of school is a very rewarding experience and can vastly improve those who are seeking to understand the psychic world. So that's why I'm here folks. Not only to give my opinion on things if you wish to know my perspective, but also to help people find a good fitting psychic school. I also want to connect with people who are from different traditions than my own and compare notes. I think all the different traditions rock! O...and for those of you on the level. I only deal in white magic and therugy. No black magic stuff for me. But hey! To each their own.
Okay, (just about done now) I hope to meet some very cool folks here, broaden my horizons and connect with fellow occultist, as well as help steer some inquiring minds in a good direction if possible.
There all done
Thank you very much for the warm welcome, and hello to you! I was not on this particular site ten years ago. It was a site focused on telekinesis. I basically said the same thing, that going to a school is better than trying to do it on your own. I'm a broken record I know. Anyhow good advice on the spiritualist church! That is another source to find a good group of common minded individuals. Hope all is going well!
