Hi, I’ve just discovered this forum. I live in small-town America, and don’t have a lot of people around me that I can talk to about things I’m truly passionate about or subjects that fascinate me. I was interested in magic from an early age and also found my occult interests overlapping with fantasy fiction, and have had some interesting experiences with synchromysticism where I randomly stumbled upon new fictional works that somehow corresponded to struggles I was dealing with in my own life. I found in adolescence that Wicca was not a good fit for me, but chaos magic and shamanism seem to be more appropriate for myself as an individual. I’m also interested in all gay-friendly forms of mysticism and occult practices.
I have done sigils and curses, and a few past-life regressions on myself. When I learned to tap into my deep subconscious mind, I usually get some kind of result, although it’s not always precisely what I was looking for in the first place. I’ve felt drawn to a shamanic-type path but don’t have anyone around me to act as a mentor, and I’m trying to get better at going into a deep trance on command so I can do more journeying. I’m also interested in getting further information on my own past lives and figuring out my soul’s true origin and purpose.
