Read a difficult, hard
to understand
occult-metaphysical book,
And, then, not really
understand it.
Then
Read it again
and again
then open
it at random,
read that.
Close the book,
Come back tomarrow,
and do it again,
and
again.

Train
yourself
to tackle
the difficult,
and do it
everytime
until you
know
you know
YOU KNOW,
and then feel
the power

Une lecture difficile,
difficile a comprendre
occulte metaphysique livre,
et, ensuite, ne pas
le comprendre vraiment
Puis le lire
encore et encore,
puis de l'ouvrir
au hasard,
lire.
Fermer le livre,
revenir ce demain, et de le faire
encore et encore
Entrainez-vous

à faire face à la
difficile,
et de le faire

Thanks for posting this. I roll my eyes every time Hollywood puts out their new creature of the year. Hollywood movies are all based on ancient beliefs twisted to fit into the modern day black and white either/or thinking that modern society is based on. Unfortunately, a lot of comic authors and paranormal fiction writers are to blame for the movies and shows currently on air.

I definitely agree with OP's post, however I'd like to play devil's advocate for a quick second.

While you shouldn't believe in what Hollywood writes regarding magick, etc., it can be possible to de-fictionalize some of it. I'm reading Kalayna Price's Grave Witch series and some of the magic in the books definitely seems doable. The heroine in the book, Alex Craft, wears spelled jewelry. One is a ring that she uses to store magical energy because she has to have a store from which to work her magic, and the other is a charm bracelet where each charm has a magical purpose. (In the second book there's a running joke regarding one of her charms.)

I took both of these and worked my own magic with them. I made an enchanted bracelet to help me find a job, where each charm on the bracelet represented certain things (e.g. confidence, attracting luck, etc) and one charm was a significator charm that aligned the spell's energy to me. This worked, and I found a job after wearing the bracelet to my interview. Granted, the bracelet broke and I recently had to re-write the spell, but this spell started out in a book. My other enchanted jewelry was an obsidian pendant that I still have. Because we don't have to carry stores of magick around with us, this spell doesn't have as much practical use in the real world, but I still charged the pendant with energy. I accidentally let it out when I was in a book store and got a head rush from the energy, but again, it worked. I had a vessel to store the energy in.

So the point I'm trying to make is that while Hollywood is NOT a legit source of information regarding magick, etc, it IS possible to de-fictionalize certain spells and charms for real-world use.

Since I can't edit my post any longer, I just wanted to add that aside from the above I do agree with what Magnolia is saying, and that works of fiction should not be used as sources of factual information. I'm actually fine with Wikipedia though, but really as just a quick source of info and a jumping-off point for further research using other informational sources. When it comes to paranormal research, you really can't go wrong with history books and mythology!

That's exactly what im thinking about, i like the show "Supernatural" but since im not really good in communicating (right now) - i wonder how the feel about this because i don't think its real or entities/spirits behave like in this show.

With computer games for example i tried to avoid games/passages where this stereotypically entities show up (fallen angel, evil succubi, big boss dragons etc. that "need" to be killed). Its a pity, i really loved to play games like Diablo, Hack'n'Slay in general but to show respect i decided to stop this kind of games.

I wanted to get into the new WoW Addon but im not sure, i dont want to virtually slay entities...

On the other side there are games like "The Witcher" where you can decide to rescue/help the "evil" entities/spirits... its a really good game its not about white and black, its about grey and that most things are different then they first look like.

REMOVED - DO NOT RETRY wrote: My Angels HATE Supernatural because of how they are depicted. I thought the movie Legion was bad, but they get even angrier about Supernatural. I actually had one of my Angels flat out say it was "repulsive" and "complete and utter disrespect to the Angelic races."


That's very interesting. The angels from Supernatural are actually the closest I've seen angels as I've known them all my life being portrayed. Not so much their powers and abilities or their role in the storyline, but their general feeling, ethics, way of thinking and attitude. When they started appearing on the show, I was like "now this was definitely written by someone who has worked with angels extensively!". (I'm talking about archangels, planetary angels, the shem etc, not my bound angels from CH. These are much different.)


Think you've seen it all? Think again. Outside those doors, we might see anything. We could find new worlds, terrifying monsters, impossible things. And if you come with me... nothing will ever be the same again!

(I'm talking about archangels, planetary angels, the shem etc, not my bound angels from CH. These are much different.)

I definitely think that it has to do with the angels we attract, to be honest. The Enochian Angels I am acquainted with are extremely disconnected from human emotions and understanding, but I have a guardian angel here who actually finds any form of separation between human and angel as disrespectful. He's extremely human in emotions and mannerisms, and sometimes I even mistake him for a human spirit when he is nearby. I think my Enochian friends just also don't like the cinematic feel of the show. I recall shopping for Enochian magick rings and sigils on Etsy some time ago, and each time I typed in "Enochian" and received nothing but quotes from Supernatural, my Enochian Angel friend F beside me would roll his eyes and start muttering disgruntled sentences to himself about how tacky and kitschy the human race is with its fascination of romanticized and dramatized TV shows about Angels in general.

And that's not saying ALL angels are like mine, lol. I know they all have differing opinions. Personally I just don't like the show because of how they demonized the Pagan God and Goddess in the Chrismas episode in the first season. XD


Ah, I see. Yeah, there are many different kinds of angels out there and not all people will attract or work with the same kinds. Btw, just in case it wasn't clear, I wasn't judging or anything, I honestly find it interesting that our experiences differ so much when it comes to angels.
I personally don't like Supernatural's depiction of demons. The show's demons are what I'd call sludge beings, and don't have much in common with the demons I've worked with.

Where can I buy Superman's spirit and get his powers or another custom conjured kryptonite?

::included::

Actually no, I wanted to make a point how ridiculous it is for whoever does so 1sh


A male chatting with his succubus:
- You know, you are ridiculously attractive for a devil woman.
- I know, but thanks for saying so. Devil women have feelings too!
- Are you ... going to kill me?...
- Yes... but you'll enjoy it!
- ... ok!

My psy vamp "C" is into vampire diaries lol! He likes the show, especially Damon. He said that his life was much like Damon's in that he used to be much less caring but he has found his gentler side again recently. He thinks it's funny how volatile their tempers are, I guess because he sees them as very young still ( C is over 7400 years old and Stefen and Damon are around 160). I only watch the first few mins of supernatural and I just couldn't get into it so I gave up. I personally enjoy the Sookie stack house novels more than the show although Eric is pretty delish [emoji6]
