Anyone who has done any serious magickal work knows that if you do any work on the astral at all, then every once in a while, you’re going to attract a certain amount of psychic sludge. The Elements get imbalanced, due to focussing on a single Element. When you do ritual, you light up on the astral plane. Doing white light work? Intense meditation? Doing pentagram rituals or casting circles? Honoring
I agree with this statement: “If you’ve got a religious belief that withers in the face of observations of the natural world, you ought to rethink your beliefs — rethinking the world isn’t an option. -PZ Myers, biology professor (b. 9 Mar 1957)” People might wonder why I would agree with this quote, being that I am an occultist. To me, Spirits and magick are perfectly in tune with the natural world.
