The Occult - Occultopedia: The Occult and Unexplained Encyclopedia Avia Venefica: Behind the Signs at Whats-Your-Sign.com Avia Venefica contends the universe and all its contents is a sacred energy that uses organic symbolism as a platform for expression. She actively pursues deeper meaning in life events (individually and collectively) and employs an archetypal, gestalt use of symbolic interpretation to gain insight into these life events. This pursuit has lead her to study literature (i.e.: Jung, Campbell) and philosophies of varying cultures (i.e.: Native American, Celtic) with a goal to understand symbolic meanings using naturalistic (pre-industrial) perspectives. "The Divine is always communicating with us. Avia proposes, that by learning various cultural and archetypal meanings of symbols, we can utilize those meanings for guidance in solving real-life problems. Avia has an undergraduate degree in anthropology and has been an understudy in several tribal and spiritual organizations. A Message From Avia Hi Everybody! My writings here and on my blog are a result of all that poking around. UPDATE!
Anneliese Michel - Wikipedia Anneliese Michel [ˈanəˌliːzə ˈmɪçl̩] (21 September 1952 – 1 July 1976) was a German woman who underwent Catholic exorcism rites during the year before her death. Later investigation determined that she was malnourished and dehydrated; her parents and the priests responsible were charged with negligent homicide. She was epileptic and had a history of psychiatric treatment, which was overall not effective. Her condition worsened with her displaying various other symptoms which she took medication for as well. Michel and her family became convinced she was possessed by demons. The case attracted media and public attention because of the priests' unusual decision to employ a 400-year-old ritual of exorcism. Early life Psychiatric treatment In June 1970, Michel suffered a third seizure at the psychiatric hospital where she had been staying. Exorcism and death Bishop Josef Stangl (May 1959) who approved the exorcism ordering total secrecy Prosecution Trial Notes

Claiming to have been established in the 1960s, it arose to public recognition in the early 1980s, attracting attention for its espousal of Neo-Nazi ideologies and activism. Describing its approach as "Traditional Satanism", it has been academically identified as also exhibiting Hermetic and Neo-Pagan elements in its beliefs. According to the Order's own account, it was established in the Welsh Marches of Western England during the late 1960s by a woman who had previously been involved in a secretive pre-Christian tradition surviving in the region. The ONA lacks any central authority or structure, instead operating as a broad network of associates – termed the "kollective" – who are inspired by the texts originally authored by Long and other members of the "Inner ONA". 
Springwater Center: Meditation at Springwater Center The following words, adapted from a talk given by Toni Packer on August 30, 1998, convey the spirit of meditation at Springwater Center. You can also listen to or download the original talk (MP3). What a beautiful, quiet morning it is! The faint hum of insects, a cool breeze touching the skin. The breathing, do we feel it? The body pulsating with heart beats, people sitting quietly together? Is there, for moments at a time, an open listening that does not create divisions among us? We are not asking in order to get rid of wanting or fearing, these cannot be gotten rid of by any conventional means. Right now can there be simple listening, awaring, being present to what appears as sound and feeling and thinking in the midst of open silence? Our habitual listening and looking has been thoroughly conditioned by past experiences and innate tendencies which unconsciously select, color, distort what we hear and see.
Internet Book of Shadows Index This is a large (+9Mb) collection of articles related to Neo-Paganism which can be found archived at a number of FTP sites (for instance, here). This is a collection of posts to bulletin boards from the late eighties to the mid nineties, essentially predating the modern Internet. According to a recent communication, the original editor of this archive was Durwydd mac Tara at PODS net. We acknowledge Durwydd's hard work to preserve this archive. For ease of access, we have converted this archive to HTML using a C program. There are a number of technical difficulties with this collection including runtogetherwords in many places, problems with the table of contents and huge inconsistencies in pagination; due to the volume of this material we have left these intact for now. We have taken the liberty of removing about twenty-five articles which were too far 'off topic', posted elsewhere at this site, or had serious copyright issues.
Awakening As One | uniting the way to the new world The Museum of Unnatural Mystery Homepage Schwerer Gustav: The World's Biggest Gun - Under Hitler the Nazis developed a number of crazy weapons. Some, like the V-1 and V-2 missiles, were harbingers of the future. Others, like the enormous battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz, were the zenith of soon obsolete weapons systems. One that was built, however, almost defies belief. It's the Schwerer Gustav gun, the biggest artillery piece ever used in combat. Ask the Curator: Time Speeding Up?

And that’s when you met me. “What… what happened?” “You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. “There was a… a truck and it was skidding…” “Yup,” I said. “I… I died?” “Yup. You looked around. “More or less,” I said. “Are you god?” “Yup,” I replied. “My kids… my wife,” you said. “What about them?” “Will they be all right?” “That’s what I like to see,” I said. You looked at me with fascination. “Don’t worry,” I said. “Oh,” you said. “Neither,” I said. “Ah,” you said. “All religions are right in their own way,” I said. You followed along as we strode through the void. “Nowhere in particular,” I said. “So what’s the point, then?” “Not so!” I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. “Oh lots. “Wait, what?” “Sure. “Just me?
