Hello. My name is Jon and I have been interested in occult/esoteric ideas and practices for most of my life. I have only recently begun practicing more “occult” rituals, to varying degrees of success. It is a process. I can’t remember how I found this forum a few weeks ago but I have been reading it for a few weeks now. I decided to register this account to help with keeping track of posts/threads mainly, so I probably will not be posting much. Maybe once I have more experience I will have more to contribute.
Welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay here and find it fruitful!
Welcome to the asyl… I mean, the forum. Enjoy and remember the search function is your ally.
Do you have any experience in magick?
What area of magick are you interested in learning?
Welcome to the forum Jon. Feel free to dive right in whenever you find a topic that interests you.
I do have some experience in magick, but have really just started this year. I have done a few rituals - the Headless Rite and rituals/offerings for Artemis/Hekate/Selene mainly - with varying degrees of success. I have done some sigil magick and have made a few charms and oils, also with varying degrees of success. I tried summoning a few demons, but did not see any results. I am going to work on this more but I am currently focusing on slowing down and shoring up some foundational skills - breath control, meditation, visualization, focus, etc.
I am most interested in summonings, sigils and making charms/oils (hoodoo sort of stuff). Any recommendations for books/websites to read would be appreciated! I have several books already that I am reading or have read, and also I have found several useful posts on this forum. One difficulty is that I have always learned better by “doing” with a teacher/guide, rather than through “reading instructions,” but I am getting over this and have become more serious about taking notes on what I do and what results I get, which has helped.
Thank you for elucidating more upon your experience
