About

A blog that views the worlds of cryptozoology and the paranormal through a magical perspective.  And I am not talking about sleight of hand!

From my introduction:

Some years back, I blundered into a wonderful book called Monsters: An Investigator’s Guide to Magical Beings by John Michael Greer. For the first time, it occurred to me that all this esoteric material that I had been learning had a place in the paranormal and cryptozoological world of which I was so fond. Greer, who is a ceremonial magician in the Golden Dawn tradition, put forward the idea that, in order to really understand the “monsters” that people kept seeing and reporting, we needed to set aside our predominant Western materialist mind set and look at the world through the eyes of a magician.

So, that is what I will attempt to do in this blog – look at these sightings and stories that have interested me for so long through a different lens. My object in writing this blog is to make people think and to say to themselves “what if . . . “. I am not out to convert anyone or give them instruction on how to become masters of magic. I am simply going to take what I have learned over the course of the years and propose some ideas that I think may help to explain some of the “high strangeness” out there.

    My name is Kyle, and I think that your blog is awesome. It seems to be very similar to mine, The Demon Hunter’s Compendium (www.demonhunterscompendium.blogspot.com). I have a question: who runs this blog? I would very much like to speak with him or her. If you go to my blog, you will find my email address and be able to contact me. Thank You!

    After reading your post on the “The Dresden Effect” I would love to talk to you about a novel you might enjoy. Please contact me at shannonathompson@aol.com if you’re interested.

    Hello, this may seem like an odd request. I’m Seeking someone who can mentor me in doing astral travel on the lower “solid” plane and guide me in the nessessary first steps of getting out, raising energy, sustaining etc. and help me with wisdom in starting my spiritual/magical career. Or if you know anyone who could help me. For anything you can tell me; thank you.

      Michael:

      These things are best done in person with a live mentor. However, if you find yourself in a situation where there are no teachers in your area, I strongly recommend taking a look at the Quareia program. Josephine Littlejohn is a recognized and well respected esoteric teacher and she has done a stellar job of putting together an online training program that will help you get started, if you have the discipline to stay with it. Good wishes.

    Okay thanks a lot. Yes Been looking for years online just to find some solid well researched and practical info, which is in itself had to do when all you know about it is basic terms like “astral projection” lol. I finally found Robert Bruce but I realize more and more that there is no substitute for in person training, as you say. I will look into the Quareia program, more insight and perspective are always welcome. 🙂
