(Ahh but is it silver, golden or iridescent?)
After reading some of the discussion in the Subconscious mind thread I thought it wouid be worth creating this topic, separately from the any occultists thread, to help keep other threads on track and provide a section to discuss these two related topics.
A bit of background from me, I’ve been involved in the study of different magickal or spiritual systems since perhaps the age of 10 or 11 (I’m 42 now), with a change in my methodology of study which was first encountered in 1999 even before I became involved with largely West Coast US magickal people and organizations in the southern hemisphere briefly to continue my development. I’ve been involved in both OTO and AMORC in the past (currently a dues paying member of neither, although that may change later this year) and a curious student of Thelema since at least 1999, becoming more serious around 2003. I was also received an initiation from a local renegade Thelemic Sufi in Brisbane in 03 or 04. I mention some of my background only to make it clear I’ve been studying and practicing for some time now, and have seen the good the bad and the downright ugly of “magical” philosophy.
I’ll be carefully putting together some posts for this thread over the next several days to explain what intersections I see of magick and chakra systems and other such things with the realm of subliminals, I’d like this to be a place where other people can do the same and share their experience with that as well as discussing the topics such as the Tree or numeric correspondences in more detail without derailing other threads.
I’ll be starting later today with the importance of a critical examination of the history of these topics and their purpose in discerning the true from the false information (or more directly, the information that limits or confuses ones understanding versus that which allows an expanded understanding of purpose and how to apply multiple different systems by following general principles). In the meantime, I hope people don’t mind be splitting off a topic for this very interesting subject area which has been one of my primary areas of intense interest for many years due to its great utility!
