Please note: the central aim and focus of this thread is not Thelema. Any discussion or inquiries regarding Thelema that come up during the natural progression of the thread are entirely welcome and even encouraged. However, this thread will not be solely focused on the discussion of Thelema or Crowley (as I am not a Thelemite) and instead will be focused on the general discussion of (and act as a resource center for) all things occult and mystical, including but definitely not limited to: Qabalah, Hermeticism, Alchemy, Astrology, Yoga, Meditation, Gnosticism, The Psychedelic Experience, Christian Mysticism, Eastern Mysticism, Theosophy, Theurgy, Divination and so on and so forth (I'm sure I will be promptly reminded that I left someone's personal, sacred ox off this list).

Have fun, be inquisitive and most of all: "let brotherly love continue." Please try your best to keep egregious shitposting, trolling and unmerited authoritativeness to a bare minimum. The best way to achieve this is to ignore obvious trolls and to be cordial; remember, cordiality costs nothing.
Q&A spiritual world

Let me introduce myself.
I am a 26 year old muslim man from Morocco. This is my first post with the goal to lift up the veil of ignorance a little that seems to be rampant. Understandably so, as most of you people are from the West. My experience with the westerners is that they are very oblivious and ignorant about non-Western cultures and the spiritual world that is all around us. People are walking around with a ghostradio and rubbing crystals offering help to get them to the other side, that kind of stuff..
From where I come from, the spiritual world is a reality and extends far deeper than your average spooky story/subforum. There are certain rules to follow closely intertwined with the Islamic religion. The amount of magicians(usually female) is 10, no 100x times the amount that can be found in the West. Paranormal activity is very common in Morocco and so is the general knowledge and probability of having an encounter.
I am here to answer questions, offer new insights and explain things in a practical and easy to understand way. Thing that I will not do is explain how to perform true magic, conjure beings from the other world and how to harm others or yourself as I fear the punishment of my Lord.

Holy shit. Google Maps glitched up an entire town, and the result is creepy as hell.

If you died today, and you found out this life was just a test (and you succeeded) to be a God in another universe, how would you run your first planet?
>Run a planet in a perfect synthesis of Science & Spiritualism, a race of (intelligent) human beings, I would make myself God in human form (like Jesus was) and rule the planet as the high priest, everything is in zen, there is no war, famine, crime. The perfect world, similar to Narnia, a planet that has the equivalence to the Garden of Eden.
>But, despite the need for world peace, i would have to create a evil counterpart, so there will be all types of dark creatures that rule the planet at night, causing destruction.
This shit would be pretty cash

hey /x/, I need some people who are familiar with spirits, ghosts and the like. something happened no more than 30 minutes to me in broad daylight that i cant explain.
im walking back from class with my headphones in minding my own business and i see this girl walking toward me in a white sun dress, pretty modern looking. kinda weird right off the bat since no one really wears that shit around here. so as we get closer and are about to pass i look up and shes smiling right at me, this big gorgeous smile. shes admittedly really hot and has some big tits. so i smile back and keep walking, feeling pretty good. i take no more than 10 steps and i look back and shes just gone. no where. i wouldve seen her if she turned or hopped the guard rail or something. we passed each other just a few seconds before and the sidewalk is on a long overpass with steep hills down the side. the only explanation i had was that she got picked up by a car but it had to be so fast.
basically, is anyone familiar with this type of thing? and am i going to see this bitch again if shes some kind of spirit? and can i fuck her?
100% serious about all of this. i know its not the crazy shit everyone wants to hear on /x/ but it is completely true.

>post the most haunted location in your town/city.
>Give some background info on said location.
For my small town this is it. For years, this residence has been on and off the market. It cant keep its owner for more than a few months. I have a friend who went in with his dad to renovate it for its new owners a few years back. Swears on everything that one room was riddled with flies. He got some bug spray and killed them, but not an hour later, they were all back, with all the dead ones still on the floor. Theres lots of local legends and myths about it, the most prominent one is that in the late fifties, a man murdered his wife and child, and then offed himself via handgun. I've managed to talk to one of the previous owners, who lived in it in 1999, for only 6 months. He kept seeing what looked like children peeking around doors and corners. and the house had strong smells of cigarettes, beer and sewage at random times.
I've also noticed that at night, for some reason, the back window on the second story floor is always on. Seeing how the house is for sale now and is empty, Me and a friend of mine might break in and take some photos. Will probably dump on /x/ is it happens.
