The books we offer expand numerous occult topics. The following are short definitions of some of them. The definition of occult simply means hidden or unseen. The occult books we offer deal with what may be termed spiritual occultism. Dealing with the hidden, the unseen realms of spirits and spiritual energy.Magick : This spelling for magic with a "K" was used by Aleister Crowley to define spiritual magick as opposed to mundane magic, such as pulling rabbits out of your top hat. Magick deals with spiritual forces within yourself and within the universe. Witchcraft : Historically, witchcraft was seen as a diabolical pact with the Devil. We've all heard of the witches riding to the sabbats on their broomsticks after anointing themselves with magical oils where they would dance and fornicate with the Devil and his homeboys. Today, however, witchcraft is not seen in the same light.
Though today's Traditional Witchcraft can incorporate some dark spiritual aspects, such as the modern Luciferian Witchcraft. Wicca , however, deals with pagan gods and goddesses and has a creed of "harming none" and is basically nature worship and spell-casting, and herbal work. Sorcery : The books we offer on sorcery you'll find are of a darker nature. Where darker aspects of occultism are employed in a folk-magic style. Like in traditional witchcraft, herbs, oils, bones, dirt, colors, sigils and darker spirits are employed for tasks.
Necromancy : Working with the dead. Necromancy uses various magical tools and techniques to speak with, communicate with, and call forth the dead.
Necromancers usually employ human skulls, bones, and other items of the grave in their dark arts. Grimoires : Books of ritual magic instruction are usually termed grimoires.
These grimoires have been around for centuries. Some teach you how to call up spirits of certain natures, cast spells, curses, make pacts with demons, and much more. Modern grimoires are what you will mainly find we offer.
We live in the modern age, therefore, we try to offer grimoires more in sync with today's modern witch, magician, sorcerer or necromancer.
