Next Week I’ll be out of the state on a business trip so there will be no blog posts or the weekly round up. I will return the following week! With that being said below is the weekly round up of news and articles that caught my eye. Discussion is welcome.
Kelly-Ann Maddox’s New Altar Setup
I’m in love with this altar. Every time I see a new altar video I get inspired to change everything on mine. This video has a ton of eye candy. Kelly-Ann Maddox is one of the leading YouTube bloggers in the magical arena. She is very knowledgeable but manages not to take herself too seriously. Ive been a long time subscriber and I hope that I can get up the courage one day to start a YouTube channel and speak with the same gusto she does.
When Science and the Occult Went Head-to-Head on a Germain Mountaintop
Though magic can give you an edge on this plane there are still rules to the universe that must be followed. I think now if you asked any serious magician if they were able to turn a goat into a boy they would think you were joking and may take slight offense. This experiment was seen as absolute proof that magic does not exist. The whole thing is humorous to me when I imagine all of these people gathered set out to prove the existence of something so abstract by doing something so…what is the word….comical? ridiculous? This was a very entertaining read.
Psychedelic Qabalah for the Modern Psychonaut
This is a very long and and in depth article on the use of psychedelic drugs and how the psychedelic experience relates to the Qabalah and tree of life. Be warned -this article is some heavy reading. If your someone who does mix drugs with their practice then this article might be of interest.
The Key to the Subconscious: Imagination
I recently stumbled upon this YouTube channel just meandering for new occult channels. The channel is run by Joseph March formally known as Psycho Sorcerer. He has a lot of really good videos on ceremonial magic. His videos do not have the eye candy that Kelly-Ann’s do but they are packed with really good information. I usually listen to them in the background when I’m working on jewelry. This is a good video on the different modes of utilizing the imagination to bring about your will. Though not totally encompassing this is a good starting off point for practice and discussion.
Indigo Speaker is back on YouTube
Indigo Speaker has been absent from YouTube for several months. His videos focus mainly also on ceremonial magic. If you have been wondering what he has been up to he addresses those questions in this YouTube video. Apparently he has been working on forming his own magical order – I think that might take up a little bit of your time.
