The Supernatural  the Occult  and the Bible

Several New Age magazines have devoted stories to a burgeoning "Cult of the Goddess." But this cult isn't a result of the women's movement or the product of environmental consciousness - nor is it really new. In fact, the Catholic Church has been making use of a similar cult for two thousand years. In this book, Gerald A. Larue examines the scriptural underpinnings of occult and supernaturalistic notions that survive in contemporary society. The Supernatural, the Occult, and the Bible is based on the author's thorough knowledge of the history of ancient Near-Eastern cultures and their mythology. Larue argues that biblical supernaturalism and modern occultism are two sides of the same coin, and illustrates in fascinating detail how they engender and support each other. He suggests that contemporary religions cannot shirk responsibility for some of the more foolish excesses of occult practice. Larue points out that present-day churchgoers are not as a matter of course made aware of archaeological findings that shed light on scriptural teachings - research into biblical and related languages, literary analyses of biblical texts, and studies of the relationship between concepts found in the Bible and aspects of contemporary occult beliefs and practices - and explains why this is so. The breadth of Larue's research and depth of insight, and his common sense approach, make this book both engrossing and important.

Arcana Mundi

Magic, miracles, daemonology, divination, astrology, and alchemy were the arcana mundi, the "secrets of the universe," of the ancient Greeks and Romans. In this path-breaking collection of Greek and Roman writings on magic and the occult, Georg Luck provides a comprehensive sourcebook and introduction to magic as it was practiced by witches and sorcerers, magi and astrologers, in the Greek and Roman worlds. In this new edition, Luck has gathered and translated 130 ancient texts dating from the eighth century BCE through the fourth century CE. Thoroughly revised, this volume offers several new elements: a comprehensive general introduction, an epilogue discussing the persistence of ancient magic into the early Christian and Byzantine eras, and an appendix on the use of mind-altering substances in occult practices. Also added is an extensive glossary of Greek and Latin magical terms. In Arcana Mundi Georg Luck presents a fascinating—and at times startling—alternative vision of the ancient world. "For a long time it was fashionable to ignore the darker and, to us, perhaps, uncomfortable aspects of everyday life in Greece and Rome," Luck has written. "But we can no longer idealize the Greeks with their 'artistic genius' and the Romans with their 'sober realism.' Magic and witchcraft, the fear of daemons and ghosts, the wish to manipulate invisible powers—all of this was very much a part of their lives."

The Art of Occultism

The Step-by-step practical guide to Occultism and Inner Exploration A colossal fence has been raised separating our current society from the flow of life and magic that permeates the whole of Creation. Humanity is gradually succeeding in its self-destruction, asphyxiating itself through the suppression of what is beyond the mere five physical senses. The art of Occultism has been forgotten. In fact, Occultism has been despised, ridiculed and denigrated into a mere fantasy, make-believe or magical thinking. This book brings this ancient secret tradition back to life using a contemporary yet powerful method. This is a book centered on occult practices. Here the reader will find detailed occult practices that will assist him in exploring the subtle inner nonphysical realms, culminating in the unveiling of the highest mystery of Occultism. The occult practices are divided into primary and secondary phases which include, but are not limited to: Concentration & Control of Awareness The Power of Imagination & Intention Creating an Occult Laboratorium Steady Inner & Outer Gaze Burning the Shadow of Fear Infusing Vital Energy & Chakras Deep Trance States Discovering the Inner Temple Inner Body Travel Divine Infusion Discovery and communion with the Higher Self Beyond the Form of Divinity Interaction with Nonphysical Beings Evocations High Occultism We sincerely hope the reader enjoys this work and that it may serve as the catalyst for the discovery of the Occult.

Beyond the Occult

Essential reading for everyone interested in the paranormal, this is the final volume in Colin Wilson's Occult Trilogy, summing up his 20 years of research into the supernatural. Almost two decades after writing his famous The Occult, Colin Wilson re-examined the whole spectrum of the mystical and paranormal, producing a general occult theory that remains as compelling as the evidence of atomic particles. Originally published in 1988, Beyond the Occult contains a huge amount of new material and evidence, which came to light following publication of The Occult. It combines scientific thinking on the nature of physical reality with a wide range of fascinating case studies, from the Swiss dowser who located the body of a missing woman to the lucky American whose dreams foretold the winning horses in multiple races to scores of accounts of mystical experiences of the Divine, of spirit possession and of poltergeists. Part One covers the amazing hidden powers of the human mind: ESP, clairvoyance, psychometry, precognition, psychokinesis, and dowsing. Part Two considers the more mysterious forces for good or evil - poltergeists, spirit possession, and reincarnation - that convinced Colin Wilson of the reality of disembodied spirits. In Beyond the Occult, Colin Wilson puts forward a convincing case that our so-called 'normal' experience may, in fact, be subnormal, and that evolution may have brought us near the edge of a quantum leap into a hugely expanded human consciousness. This new edition includes a foreword by Colin Wilson's biographer, Colin Stanley.

The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy

The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy, by Henry Cornelius Agrippa and unnamed others, is considered one of the cornerstones of Western magic, and the grimoires it contains are among the most important that exist in the Western tradition. For more than three hundred years, this mysterious tome has been regarded as difficult or even impossible to understand—until now. Occult scholar Donald Tyson presents a fully annotated, corrected, and modernized edition of Stephen Skinner's 1978 facsimile edition of the original work, which was six tracts published as one volume in 1655. For the first time, these classic works of Western magic have been rendered fully accessible to the novice practitioner, as well as occult scholars and skilled magicians. Tyson presents clear instruction and practical insight on a variety of magic techniques, providing contemporary magicians with a working grimoire of the arcane. - Astrology - History - Geomancy - Ceremonial Magic - The Nature of Spirits, Angels, and Demons - Geomantic Astronomy - Necromancy - Invocation and Evocation of Spirits
