hi,

probably you need grounding
http://forums.vsociety.net/index.php/topic,11138.0.html
excerpts above from the link

Grounding

Grounding is the act of 'recycling' impure energy on all planes of existence around oneself.  The process requires a quieted mind, so begin grounding with focal meditation. Acts of energy require intent as much as kinesis, so form a solid intent to cleanse the energy surrounding you on all planes. Locate a focal point within the soul and actualize this intent, dispelling all of the impurities, virtues, and preconceived concepts saturating the energy. Be thorough, and make sure the energy is completely pure and clean on all planes. The process may be repeated several times to ensure cleanliness, but try to be very deep and thorough about it.


That process is based on psionics and there are preliminary steps like "finding your soul". In other words, I do not think this can be useful right off the bat.

Wait, did Rayn just post a readable comment? How long have I been gone?  ???


Anyway, yes, scientific evidence so far is not exactly breath-taking and if you remember, in the past I have mentioned also some miscalculations in the statistics, namely wrongly calculated z-score. But also keep in mind, the research is still going and is underfunded so it takes time (and yes, there are more critical topics like medicine and renewable energy sources).

Hi! I'm back and... yeah... I'm getting a bit confused and maybe even frightened.  I think I need to do something but I don't know what.

1. Since I stopped "sending energy" to my friend he feels worse. Of course I still don't know if I helped him at all but maybe I did, since now that I stopped doing this he feels worse? He does not know what I did and does not know that I stopped so this is not a psychological effect :/

2. Today another strange thing occured. I was walking down the street and felt a really big pain on my belly. I looked under my t-shirt and saw two bloody bites there. And there was nothing there - no insect or anything - just two red bleeding dots. WTF? And just to add clarification - I live in a city not in the country and in my climate there is nothing (that I know of) that bites like this.  Maybe I'm becoming paranoic or something and I'm sure one can explain it like "Something must have bite you and flew away - it was probably just a wasp... but there are no wasps here and.... it just feels off".

3. I also have strange dreams from last week - like cataclysmic tornados (there were 3 of them moving towards me) or about vomiting black goo-like substance or beeing attacked by a big black spider (i have arachnophobia) or other nightmares.

F**k. I'm getting tired of this and yet I can't stop thinking about breathing energy and sending it to other people. It's like an addiction?

Two days ago I told my wife about what I think this bad luck is and that I was "healing" our friend. She was not happy about it and after a small argument she told me "why won't you help me if you can?" - she has a depression (like a real one). That same night when she was sleeping I just did the same thing I did last time (but this time I was thinking about using energy from inside me - not the stars, because you wrote that I should not take too much raw energy, so I thought I will just use the one that is in me). I was lying and thinking about giving her energy to feel better and stay positive and focused and to let her feal love and that she is loved and there is peace and she has a strength and so on). Guess what? Next day she woke up happy and with a smile (she does not know I did this!) and she pick up a phone and started calling people to start a project that she was supposed to start like a half a year ago but could not because she was so depressed that she though nothing mattes.

So there it is. It all seems to just... work... but at the same time I feel like I'm getting a string of unprobable unfortunate events as a payback. I also can't stop thinking about it. It seems my body just wants to draw energy from everything (especially sky/air/stars) with every breath. I'm really lost and I don't know anymore if I'm imagining things and this are all just coincidences or if this is real.

Please help!


If you want to stop, you should. If you want to continue, you should start studying, the decision should be made as soon as possible.

You know. There are more important things to do in life that masturbating to your magical thinking.


Oh, definitely, there are also more important things than brushing your teeth, yet you do it each day and more than once.

IIH is definitely a good start, but also a very complex book. Most people give up very early and it is actually hard to keep up with the practice. The book was intended this way to keep out the "unworthy". Unfortunately times have change and most of us do not have the luxury of time required to cope with IIH.

Which books would you recommend instead then, if any?
.


Tough choice. Well, I did write a couple of books on the topic, but I would rather recommend to go free-roaming. Try things here and there and see what clicks for you. If the OP wants to follow some book, then e.g. NAP is simple to follow, then in terms of Chaos Magick, there is of course this: https://ultraculture.org/blog/2015/11/13/psychonaut-field-manual/ which is nicely illustrated, or you can pick one of my books.

..............., but heed my warning and stay away from cults (some even proposed here on the site).

What would you consider a cult?
Would you consider the OTO, and other Golden Dawn offshoots, and the various Wiccan and Druid groups, etc. to be cults?
.


Maybe not as cults, but I would definitely steer clear of these, as well.

How about changing the forum name a little to, lets say, 'Occult Veritas', as an example; for it is not obvious that it is an occult forum with just the name 'Veritas'; at first I though I might be a political forum.
And, when doing an internet search, 'Veritas' is less likely to come up because the word 'veritas' on its own has no occult connotations.
.


Not a bad idea. If would be actually enough to change the meta description and add some meta keywords, so far the only thing here is
<meta name="description" content="The Veritas Society - Index" />[/size]
[/size]
[/size]There is definitely some settings in SMF CMS which deals with meta tags and keywords.

Hi Akenu.  Those would be small changes.  For a little while now the staff have been working on more comprehensive improvements, to be rolled out when they are ready.


When they are ready. And what kind of timeline are we speaking?

Ok, just checked and there is a possibility to setup use of WYSIWYG in the profile, but this is something that should be by default. And it should work for replies, as well.

In the long run what's the point. You get a shot of those feel good chemicals and then you to chase that ghost again and again.

If you want me to tell you the truth. I regret becoming an occultist. I got nothing out of it. Not really. It was a waste of my life. But who gives a flying fuck. People waste their lives on a lot of things. Everything is meaningless anyway and when we die game over. So no matter how much you aspire to be a grand sorcerer it's ultimately futile.

So, what's the point of sewing, crocheting, drawing, playing on a guitar, learning to swim, learning to play baseball, football... There will be no one remembering you doing that in a 1000 years...

To be frank, it's pretty damn fun, way more fun than nihilism ;-).

OK, here are some suggestions that could bring the forum back to life.

  • WYSIWYG editor for posts. Seriously, what year is this?
  • Mobile version of the forum.
  • SEO related functionality
  • Close the friggin' IRC

Ad first 3: This forum is based on SMF, there are plugins for these, just use them
Ad 4: It would be nice if even a casual conversation was back on the forum, it would bring some activity on the forum and help with the resurrection.

We did I said that or something like this: American was going to be more religious and more insular and start to shut itself off from the world and that it would become lest religiously tolerant. And something about it not belonging to itself. You ridiculed it and called it subjective. But probably deleted or lost, never mind i'll never know how I worded it and how close I was.
Thank you for looking

Shouldn't it be under the posts of one of your accounts? (either Searcher or Son of Searcher)
