Solidify Your Magikal Practice
This new aeon of Magik is for those fed up with Magik not having any sort of scientific proof behind it and the acute anti-Magikal establishments which dominate Occidental Society. It is for those who are sick of doubting themselves because other people who do not share their devotion are masking their ignorance under the curtain of science and skepticism. We have proof for ourselves and experiences of the Magikal kind are legitimate reasons. But that will not stop the persecution, particularly of the pseudoscience of psychiatry. Psychiatry has imprisoned those Shamans going through initiatory crisis, something which shamanic training can cure.
Magikal forces play their part in our everyday lives, whether people are aware of them or not. We see this happening. People's interactions and their instinctive responses to other people's auras. We see them when they duck away, seem to be annoyed by something etc. even when there is nothing seemingly present to cause this reaction. We see them instinctively engaging in the defense mechanisms of Folk Magik, best narrated in Chapter 7 of the 1895 book "The Evil Eye" by Frederick Thomas Elworthy: http://sacred-texts.com/evil/tee/img/27500.jpghttp://sacred-texts.com/evil/tee/tee11.htm and we see them not only in our everyday lives, but in television and media interviews as well. The only real difference is that we are aware and educated. We must prove this so that people will become more mindful abuse in this hidden aspect of society is kept to a minimum. But more importantly, so that society can get back in touch with the knowledge that previous ages have been blessed with to get things back to their natural order.
It's time to carve out a slice for Magik Users by dedicating Magik to being demonstrable. Not to appease our critics, but to give us more power as a culture so that our Magik can do more for us. Nothing is impossible with Magik. Magik has no limits, the only limits are on the Magik User themselves. Powerful Magik that can materialize aura is a matter of degree in Magik: degree in power and degree in precision. One does not need to have accomplished this feat in order to have satisfactory proof of this. One can practice and train and see that the potential for this degree of power can be attained by the direction the growth is headed in. This is the principle of correspondence, "As Above, So Below" as well as the principle of polarity. I welcome all who secretly have held the desire to engage in this kind of work, but didn't know how to start or wanted the courage to. Sleepers, awaken and break free of your chains. This blog is the first step to helping you and will be carried over into the publishing of a book which consists of philosophies and exercises. It is a combination of psionics and folk Magik that uses Art and various mind-body exercises as its form of training. It offers a new modality of Magik based on the Big Bang Theory and Plasma Cosmology.

Week one just ended. Honestly, there were a couple times when I was like “I’m so happy let’s crack a beer” or “I’m so stressed out I need a glass of wine” and then I had to remind myself that not only am I not drinking for 30 days, but also there are other ways to celebrate or reward myself.
We went out for a friend’s birthday party at The Abbey and it was really difficult. I eventually just got a shirley temple with lime and I forgot it wasn’t alcoholic and woke up feeling great the next day. :)
I’m so so happy Sarah and I are doing this and I’m learning so much about myself and I’m only 1/4 of the way there. Good Luck if you decide to try it! If you think it’ll be hard just start with 7 days?
Wooo Way To Go Stevie and Sarah! Keep Up The Fantastic Work!
I just watched the recent video by Jaclyn Glenn which talks about Extreme Feminists and I feel the need to comment on what I saw. If you don’t know who Jaclyn Glenn is, she’s an Atheist/Anti-theist, Vegetarian activist who does videos on youtube about those topics, the particular video in question can be seen by clicking this link: http://youtu.be/hbRwe9srFfA The video is a bit longer than most of her others and while I have no problem with exposing extreme feminism for what it is, you see that she spends the first part of her video talking about her Catholic upbringing and, in typical Anti-Theist fashion, she uses the words “religious” and “religious people” as if they were synonymous with the extremist factions of Abrahamic religions. While watching the video, I couldn’t help but to be a bit offended since I posted this: http://templearckanum.tumblr.com/post/92494386604/atheists-stop-magik-users-are-the-most-persecuted the exact same day. You don’t need to look far into the internet activities of the temple to see that we take issue with the seemingly inevitable tendency for anti-theists like Ms. Glenn to generalize all religions as if they operated like the radical exoteric versions of Abrahamic religions. This mentality isn’t coincidental, it’s ignorance spread by Atheist propaganda books like “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins. I perfectly understand that people can’t act on what they don’t know, but the real fault is when I bring this up to anti-theists and they still keep doing it. Furthermore, Ms. Glenn states near the end of her video that she and ZOMGitsCriss “fight against ALL religious people.” Rather than discuss her fallacies in great detail, I would prefer to take the time to correct Ms. Glenn on her fallacies.
1. Not all religious people are homophobic. In fact, some religions like Wicca are categorically accepting of LGBT and forerunners in gay rights activists, you can read more about it here: http://www.religioustolerance.org/wic_stat1.htm
2. A Pagan religion, by definition, is a religion that does not have Judeo-Christian roots. Pagan religions are more inclusive than every denomination of every mainstream religion and constitute the majority of individual religious schools of thought, even though they may be much smaller in terms of actual members.
3. “Animism” is the paradigm that encompasses the majority of the world’s religions. It is monist in nature and as such, does not separate the physical from the spiritual. In simple terms, Animism sees the physical and spiritual as two sides of the same reality, not as two separate realities entirely. Thus, using arguments of “belief in supernatural dualism” against non-Abrahamic religions to try to pass us off as “unsophisticated” does not apply.
4. Pagans study science and science isn’t considered to be in opposition with a Pagan path, especially a nature-based Pagan Path. Some Pagan youtubers like “madeofyucca” are starting a career as scientists, MagickTV has a “Pagan Science podcast” where they bring in Pagan experts specific to the topic of the day and you’d do well to listen to some of the pre-recorded ones before you lump all religions together.
5. Some Pagans are Atheists. Paganism does not require Theism.
6. Pagans are religious people and by spreading stigma about religious people as a whole, you’re including us as well. Stop it!
In light of that, I’m planning a long overdue video responses to Mr. Devchelle2 (in place of Templis Arckanum Adeptus Major, “Shadowlark”) and with that I will eventually include Ms. Glenn if she persists in stigmatizing religion.
What’s wrong with sluts? I like sluts, they like to get straight to the point. If I see a woman that I think is sexy and I like her, I have no problem having sex with her without saying a word. That’s how Iceland is and the world should follow suit! I’m not from Iceland, but if people can live that way without the post-apocalyptic hell breaking loose in society that is often advertised, then there’s no reason to be so uptight about sex all the time. Relax, it’s just sex. Have sex with whoever consents and no one should feel ashamed of consenting or being honest. All I should have to do it go up to a woman, wink and touch her boob gently and she should grab my hand and walk me to her place or her car to drive to her place. That’s all that getting laid should entail. “But that’s too easy”, that’s the point! “But no, it has to be hard!” Why? “Because they could have an STD!” No one says you can’t get tested and besides, it doesn’t matter because no amount of repression will give you a built-in STD infected person detector in your brain.(17 hours ago)
