Today I went into a spiritual store. It had a wide variety of cool items: Handcrafted items, crystals, native american stuff, spiritual books, etc. I’m not opposed to these types of places even though I know that it caters to New Age types more than black magicians. To each their own.
Anyhow, I asked the owner if she had ever run across a used copy of the Goetia. I then described it to her. She got a stern and concerned look on her face. She said that she was a channeler. For the next 30 minutes she lectured me on the dangers of dealing with dark energies or trying to impose our will on our reality in the least bit. It was almost like talking to a fundamental Baptist. Very strange how adamant she was on just allowing life to play out without intervening.
