My Introduction into the Occult

My Introduction to Occult Studies

The image above is part of a series of books about Occult subjects titled Mystic Places first published in the mid to late eighties.

When I was a kid, my father, being into the Occult himself, displayed this book next to our TV back when I was four or five.

I remember the first time I saw this book because my eyes kinda looked like this-

It scared my mom so much, she told my dad to get rid of the book immediately, and in retaliation, he hid the book in his closest for years.

I forgot about it until many years later, when I myself, began to search this subject for answers.

Now, back when the torrent site Demonoid was still around, I had no clue what the hell the occult was; but after I came across a Thirty Three Giga Bites collection of Occult Books- I downloaded it onto my external hard drive- and put it in the corner to collect dust.

I was afraid of what I would find inside:

“Would a demon pop out the moment I open the document? Would I raise the spirit of Jeffery Dhamer from the pits of the abyss after an unsuccessful summoning of Shaggy from Scooby Doo? Would I start wearing black nail polish and refer to myself as Magus Sexmi Eternius?” I feared for my eternal soul.

But mainstream religion wasn’t doing it. What did I really have to lose? My family upbringing of good old fashioned Christianity and fear of everything else had left me hollow and empty. I sought that Occult collection for an alternative heaven.

What I found was a smorgasbord of knowledge that leaves me  both satisfied, and hungry for more. I’ve found more positive than negative here. I not only found heaven. I found the tools necessary to create my own.
