Are We Our Own Ancestors?

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Low Magick: It’s All In Your Head … You Just Have No Idea How Big Your Head Is and the forthcoming Homemade Magick: The Musings & Mischief of a Do-It-Yourself Magus (August 2014).   Do you believe in reincarnation? I do. Perhaps […]

Through the Doors and Gates

In my two previous posts I presented some basic ideas for astral projection and astral travel. In that second post I pointed out that astral travel was about more than going to the moon or visiting a girlfriend or boyfriend. It’s even more that visiting someone to help heal them from the astral plane or […]

Sedona: A Mystical Place of Wonder

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Douglas de Long, author of Ancient Healing Techniques, Ancient Teachings for Beginners , and the new Past Lives for Beginners . About five years ago my wife, Carol, and I took a trip to the red rock country of Sedona, Arizona. It was a working vacation for […]

Is the Wiccan Rede Ethical? (Part II)

I’d like to begin by thanking everyone who commented on my previous post concerning the Wiccan Rede. All of the comments received on it, save one, have been posted. I hope you’ve read them and that they’ve triggered debate and discussion. The one comment that was not posted was far too long to include in the […]

Return to Reincarnation

There is an interesting blog post on Patheos where P. Sufenas Virius Lupus shares his ideas about reincarnation and past lives. He contends that some Pagans believe in reincarnation and others don’t. Either way, he says he doesn’t “hear a lot of discussion about reincarnation in Pagan circles these days.” He adds that the reason […]

Angela’s 2012 Wrap-Up

December is truly my favorite month! I love the sights. I love the smells. Even the sounds of music and ringing bells that I’ve heard every year before don’t get old. The sense of magic I felt as a kid flutters back to life as new traditions are made and old ones are celebrated. One […]

A Book That Needs to be Written

Are you familiar with Tantra? If you live in a Western culture, you probably know that Tantra is “that sex stuff.” It’s about “spiritualized sex,” the Kama Sutra, weird sex positions, and sex that lasts for hours. Didn’t Sting say so? (Okay, now he admits it was a joke.) Even in India, the birthplace of […]

Reincarnation: Its Value and a Proof

Even though billions of people around the world believe in reincarnation, and the belief in reincarnation has existed for thousands of years, it remains a highly controversial subject. Personally, I believe that’s a good thing. We should examine our beliefs to determine whether they are based in reality rather than fantasy. Most occultists, but definitely not […]

The Magickal Memory

Aleister Crowley thought that developing the “magickal memory” was an important part of magickal training. The magickal memory is the ability to recall past lives. In Magick Without Tears, chapter 37, he points out that one of the values of remembering past lives is that it helps you overcome a fear of physical death. In […]

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence”

Popularized by astronomer Carl Sagan, the actual source of the quote I used to title this post may be from Marcello Truzzi, a co-founder of the debunking group called CISCOP. The concept, however, goes back to people such as the French astronomer Pierre-Simon, marquis de Laplace —usually just called “Laplace”— (“”The weight of evidence for […]
