I wanted to create this thread for the less artistically inclined. I myself am somewhat in this boat. Generally I try to make things myself unless it is too elaborate. This thread will be for posting sites to find supplies or finished products to aid in ritual work. If you know of any besides the ones I posted, please add them.



https://www.azothart.com/ (Good site for buying vestments pertaining to multiple initiatory paths, from A.A., OTO, GD, Martinism, and MM Freemasonry.)


http://jasonaugustusnewcomb.com/store/index.html (Bought a circle from him and it was very well made.)



http://www.ixaxaar.com/ (Cavarly Cross Botanica)


This is the first batch I have for now. Most of my bookmarked sites are no longer working. Plus I am missing a few that I have forgotten the names of. I didn't add any Wiccan/Witchcraft sites, not because I have anything against those paths, but because they are a dime a dozen to find on the web.

We lost yet another board owner, though it was a year or more since he last logged in. In addition, we lost his digital library which is a shame since it sounded very extensive. As the new BO, I do not plan on changing the direction of the board. The old rules still apply, however, if anyone has suggestions regarding rules, settings, or the board in general, this thread will be left unlocked for that purpose.


1. /occult/ is a board with a focus on praxis and discussion of it. It is heavily encouraged that new threads reference some sort of academic material, be it a book, website, video, or whathaveyou. Notable exceptions include requests for material.

On-topic general (read: lacking a source) discussion threads are still allowed (e.g. "What kinds of meditations do you do?"), but users are encouraged to post relevant material (e.g. a book or video where you learned a meditation) in threads like those.

2. Do not create a new thread if a thread on the topic already exists unless the "theme" deviates significantly from the "theme" of the existing thread.

3. No shitposting (unless it makes the mod laugh).

4. Keep discussion civil; express yourself using whatever language you find suitable (within reason), but do not attack/insult another poster.

5. Think before you post. /occult/ encourages high-quality discussion.

6. Global Rules always apply.

I thought that thread was kind of interesting and something that I might come back to in the future, so I'd prefer if it were left up.

Sup /occult/, reading any good books lately?

It was the intent of M.P Hall that this book was to be his magnum opus, hence his goal was completeness. You would find any of his other books more focused and accessible.



It wasn't a bad book, I read it when starting out. I would put it in a Western Occult philosophy 101 class.


I'm thinking of buying Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic by Stephen Skinner. It has high reviews and the author has an interesting video online where he talks about his views towards rituals. Has anyone here read it?



I haven't read it, but Stephen Skinner has a reputable name among Occult authors. Just now realized his thesis paper made up that book, so I bet it is pretty well researched.

Turns out these guys are LHP Occultists. They were using internet autists to piece together old, eclectic grimoires. They're coming forward soon as well. They're picking occultists in the public eye to be conduits for their work at the moment.

>Cicada is a technomystical order. Our philosophy is neither a religion nor a science, but a blend of spirituality, technology, science, and mysticism. We are more closely related to Demonolatry, which after the numerious texts, scripts and unpublished cryptic books (including the notorious Liber Primus) we have decoded afterall these many years, we like to call our path Demonurgy.

>All those years that we were working and at the same time observed, we grew sick and tired of the “famous” occultists. Did you make enough money based on imaginary theories? Did you build a strong reputation based on marketing? We see these people as members of several groups, but never reply to nor help the new people on this path. If you seek help, you must buy their books! Or their online courses! This must stop. And it will! Demonic will, and does provide all the information that you need for free, who are you that you dare sell them for personal profit?

That's right. People of all ages will have free access to centuries of esoteric knowledge, modern advancements in "deivices" to work in demonolatry and all of these greedy magian-influenced retards will fade into the void.

Why are they so scared? Almost all Christians seem to think that literally every single magical/esoteric tradition, regardless of whether its RHP or LHP, black or white magick, is tantamount to Satanism and is therefore evil. Many if not most even think working with angels, who they are theoretically meant to revere, in an occult context is somehow evil. They usually rationalise it along the lines of "the occult is dangerous, don't mess with it". Sure, magick is dangerous if you aren't careful or do retarded shit, but by the same reasoning they would never drive a car or use the internet.

I know there are some Christian occultists, but why are the vast majority so afraid and morally repulsed by even white RHP magick to the extent that whenever they accidentally succeed in doing it they think its a "miracle" only the Christian god could have done whenever he selectively chooses. In a way I kind of admire any Christian occultists out there for sticking it out despite the sheer ignorance and vitriol most of their co-religionists display regarding any and all matters esoteric.

I'd imagine the situation is similar if probably more actively hostile within Islam (with the possible exception of Sufism), but my first hand experience is only with Christianity.

Self determination, that's literally it, the desire to step outside of a control structure.

The only problem is that you're just stepping from a small, cramped room into a much larger one where the things that pull the strings cannot be seen in the shadows.



Tibs B'dora. We are not stupid and Esoteric Christianity is a thing


Because it's a way of obfuscating truths about human history by exploiting their tendencies toward superstition.

One stumbling block that some fall into, and one of the reasons for the ill reputation of Esoteric science, is the idea of "elitism" that develops, that the individual is more important than the community. Christian occultists can become self-centered and fall into prelest, thinking that they can pull themselves up by their bootstraps. If one studies "secret mysteries" surely they can become the next saint! Study the occult to understand God's creation, but convert that knowledge into wisdom before being blinded by it.



Yeah so is esoteric Islam and that doesn't make Muslims any less dumb.

Religions are the left overs that the populace devour once spiritual systems have been deprived of their central tenets by having been exposed to the masses (which are too occupied in mundane stuff to really embody the message)

tl;dr gib thoughts on EVP and recommend me a good radio to listen to ghosts and/or alien transmissions, since I don't know shit about radios in this day and age

So I've been thinking this morning about Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP), which is something I haven't considered in a long time. I went through a phase in high school were I was really very interested in ghosts, but I only half-believed at best and then became hugely skeptical later on (despite having one or two small experiences). However, in these past years, as I've gotten very into the occult, I've begun to consider all the different ways that the phenomenons known as thoughtforms/archetypes/angels/demons/homonculi/familiars/elementals/aliens/ghosts/djinn/tulpae/etcetcetc manifest, and the way different levels of consciousness manifest, and most of my studies, research and experimentation over the past year and a half has pointed me to the electromagnetic spectrum as a means of grasping this mystery. This was recently validated for me by stumbling upon John Keel (Mothman Prophecies/8th Tower guy) oddly about two weeks before I heard him mentioned on a beloved true crime podcast; I was actually referred to Project Trojan Horse by Montalk, which is a website I don't often visit, but which I visited one afternoon in search of a book to read.

Now, I have always been very skeptical of the concept of aliens, but Keel's survey is very compelling, and his theory about the phenomenon is more compelling even than that. His argument is that these entities are not extraterrestrial as in "not from Earth, but some other planet or place in outer space"; rather, he believes them to be what he describes as "ultraterrestrial", inhabiting a different or many dimensions. It is very interesting, and his proposal is that, as we are able to travel through three dimensions and the forward motion of time, these extra-dimensional entities travel through three dimensions and the forward motion of time by adjusting their frequencies on the electromagnetic spectrum. Anyone curious about this should consult Keel's books, specifically Trojan Horse and 8th Tower, but I'd recommend taking his 'nefarious aliens' theory with a grain of salt, because I believe the issue is more complicated than one of entities trying to 'save' or 'control' a race; this ties in, in a weird way, witPost too long.

Hi /occult/

Does someone here has real practical knowledge/techniques? I mean the ones that give you results which you are 100% sure about. Or everything is just in theory?

Not trying to sound condescending or anything, just curious.

Share what you have anons

17 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



True. Honestly I would love to share something productive in this thread. But I am a believer of karma. And most of the things I know are manipulative in nature, whether it is for money, relationships or something else. So I decided not to. (I sound like a prick I know)

But I guess you are right. The inner world is important. Maybe even more than the materialism that everyone is seeking. It sure is a good perpspective to start your esoteric journey on.



That is partially true thought, given the hidden nature of these endeavors it is most likely that succeeding will mean you spend a lot of time alone and without contacting the outer world. Most enlightened people I'm sure did not share what they knew just because they thought about life on a different level altogether



I think with the manipulative stuff, there should always be a sort of introspective reflection on the desires at the base of one's aims. Understanding the impulses leading one to an act is far more important than the act itself. Meditation on this often shows that even with magick, we are still reacting to the world, instead of being the actor. This is one reason why Dr. Hyatt had very little time for those students who came to him seeking to learn magick. Dr. Hyatt would say that they had "mommy" or "daddy" issues. I think he meant that there was some sort of neglect on a psychological level, that lead them to think that magick or fantasy could fill in this hole in their psyche. As the experienced mage moves on, the need for magick drops off, through this introspection, and with the increase of specific synchronicities (ie. the exterior world beginning to reflect the inner world of the mage), the mage lives a life of magick without even having to perform magick.


If you wish to get results:

1-Clean your house

2-Do all the chores perfectly

3-Then you can have guests if you want to make friends and help each other

3.1-If you don not want guests you can still cook dinner.



Oh and don't forget to clean the table and wash the dishes!

Hey, /occult/, it's been awhile. Things here seemed kind of slow so instead of bumping the Painted Blind Publishing thread I thought I'd start a discussion about something I've recently found and become very interested in. Has anybody heard of Daniel Harding's THE HEADLESS WAY? It's basically a series of experiments to discover the root of one's consciousness; I was immediately interested because I got turned onto magick, consciousness and true liberation while meditating into a mirror during an acid trip, which made me realize I was and yet was not the self I beheld. Harding's experiments are not only very similar, they give me that acid-trip-pure-consciousness-surge while stone-cold-sober. These are like waking meditation techniques, basically. Invaluable to any and every magician and a kind of mindfulness double plus, at least to somebody who already has a fairly working distinction between the concepts of consciousness and ego. The experiments are all online for free:


The dude himself, Harding, is a pretty interesting guy, and his route to illumination is also very beautiful. The relevant bit (from http://www.headless.org/douglas-harding.htm):

One day Harding stumbled upon a drawing by the Austrian philosopher and physicist Ernst Mach. It was a self-portrait – but a self-portrait with a difference. Most self-portraits are what the artist looks like from several feet – she looks in a mirror and draws what she sees there. But Mach had drawn himself without using a mirror – he had drawn what he looked like from his own point of view, from zero distance.

When Harding saw this self-portrait the penny dropped. Until this moment he had been investigating his identity from various distances. He was trying to get to his centre by peeling away the layers. Here however was a self-portrait from the point of view of the centre itself. The obvious thing about this portrait is that you don’t see the artist’s head. For most people this fact is interesting or amusing, but nothPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Never heard of the guy before. I am going to have to dig into this. Thanks.


Recently i joined a cult called New Acropolis, they are part of the Theosophical Movement . Does anyone has any information about New Acropolis or is part of them?



>Recently i joined a cult called New Acropolis

Did you know they were a cult before joining?

>Does anyone has any information about New Acropolis or is part of them?

No, you are the only member I know. Can you tell us a little about them, or at least what you know thus far?

all i do is to make other people happy

the only things i really feel like i want to do are considered bad, like, killing and turning things on fire (i had a pyromaniac childhood)

i decided to post this here because these things are basic stuff on thelema

Is there a book that teaches the history of magic, how magic has changed throughout the centuries, when certain concepts were introduced, how different schools of magic influenced one another, etc? Sort of like an encyclopedia of magic? Thanks.


File: 7ce49ad1d4ea277⋯.jpg (30.39 KB, 315x475, 63:95, Western Esotericism.jpg)


I don't know of any magnum opus style tome for the complete history of occultism just yet. Usually it is just collecting scholarly texts that focus and one specific area of time, like Rosicrucianism, and connecting that with another book. Anyway, here are links for some that might help you out. The one from SUNY press may be up your alley, but it focuses on the Western Mystery Tradition. As far as I know, there is not a book that focuses on the history of magic throughout the entire world.

Thanks! The second one is pretty close to what I was looking for. I downloaded it from Library Genesis, here it is if you want to add it to your collection.



Excellent, thank you for the share!




'History of Magic and Experimental Science'is the closest I have found:

Hello everyone. Wanted to ask someone experienced about the process of Djinn conjuration. Where do I begin, what are the risks and how do I pull it off? Thanks.



A Djinn conjuration is very similar to any other spirit working. I don't work with the Djinn, but they are all very much similar in terms of the steps involved.

1. You need an indentity of the spirit(Djinn). You need to know who you're gonna call. You can either create the identity of the spirit buy making your own sigil, or you can work with an established one by using their sigil.

2. Ritual work is not always necessary to have the spirit manifest in your life, but it generally is the most formal of communications. Think of the ritual as like a business meeting or first date, impressions matter. Latter you can summon on the fly using standard sigil workings or mantra techniques.

3. Risks involve being subconsciously too passive and turning over too much power and attention to your new djinn companion. Also unless your mentally stable enough, you may being to think that your Djinn is doing things that it really isn't doing. Paranoia can develop for those not versed in this work.

Have you done other forms of ritual workings, or is this your first go?


Scarlet Imprint have just released "Jinn Sorcery" by Rain Al-alim, which may give you some ideas.



sure that's nice, an Islamic daemon.

anyways, would be nice to use it to hex jews with



Nineveh Shadrach wrote a number of books on Islamic occult practices. There was even a school I think named the Society of the White Flame, or something like that. I have no idea if it is still around, but Shadrach I believe was one of the founders. I unfortunately have not never read any of Shadrach's work, so I do no how 'pure' it is to the Islamic tradition. However, you may want to check it out in case it is helpful.

What are things/items/accessories etc. that I can wear/use/keep around etc. that are said to bring good luck/protect/enchant/ward off evil/get rid of negativity etc.?

I'm very new to this type of thing and want to learn more about stuff like this.

I've started wearing rudraksha mala as of late and this piqued my interest in all things that could be of any use to a practitioner or just and average joe looking to have some extra fortune, etc. in his life. I just want to learn more about these types of charms/crystals/other stuff that people know work or at least believe have some sort of effect.

Just a curious anon, is all.

If anyone has any contribution or a website or book that I could read that would list everything that I would need to know, that would be much appreciated.

These are all identifiers to broadcast to yourself and others that you have magikal intent; without any knowledge of how the luck plane functions or understanding of will and intent's function in talismans, or any aspect of magik for that matter, these affectations serve no other end than to stroke your ego and is a placebo pill for your fear and pain.



Interesting thought, I'll give you that.

Is there any spell to help retrieve a stolen item? Someone stole the laptop I use for everything at my campus. I have a lot of hard work going to waste here so I want to find it through a higher power. Is there anything I should look into?



Star Wars & Joy Division, does it get any better than that? In your case I would suggest a few sigils. If you are good seership, you may be able to see the thief and identify them, but I am horrible at that.
