Occult Underground - Portal to Esoteric Knowledge

The word occult has its root in the Latin word occultus, meaning clandestine, hidden, or secret, and refers to the 'knowledge of the secret' or 'knowledge of the hidden', and often popularly translates to 'knowledge of the supernatural'. This term is also popularly taken to mean 'knowledge meant only for certain people' or 'knowledge that must be kept hidden'. For centuries, this knowledge was deemed too dangerous to be shared with the masses, so it was kept hidden from them underneath layers of superstitions, half truths and whole lies by those who were afraid of it or those who had much to gain by keeping it to themselves. That time has long since past. With the spectacular advances made by society with respect to individual rights and freedom of information, more and more people are learning about this occult knowledge and how to make use of it to empower themselves and better their lives.

Minerals are typically formed when molten rock, or magma, cools, or by separating out of mineral-rich water, such as that in underground caverns. In general, mineral particles are small, having formed within confined areas such as lava flows or between grains of sediments. Large crystals found in geodes and other rocks are relatively rare.

Astral projection Astral projection (or astral travel ) is an interpretation of out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of an " astral body " separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside it.

[ 3 ] It is therefore associated with near death experiences and is also frequently reported as spontaneously experienced in association with sleep and dreams, illness, [ 4 ] surgical operations, drug experiences, sleep paralysis and forms of meditation.
