I'm the creator of Temple Illuminatus, and I just wanted to take a moment to encourage our new incoming members to reach out and introduce themselves.
It doesn't have to be a brilliant essay all about you, it can just be a simple sentence saying hello and giving people a heads up that there's a new person on board.
I encourage you to take time to get to know one another, welcome new members, make connections and friends.
When in doubt, reach out! Don't be shy!
We want to get to know you.
If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to read my profile, and feel free to ask any questions you have about me and about the site.
My Name is Mark Miller I live in Topeka, KS. I have studied the occult, magick, religions, Left Hand Path for over 20 years. I have a personal library of over 2000 books many of which are on the above subjects.
Well, I'm Gordon Keirle-Smith, have the feeling I've lived about five or six incarnations in this one (everything from visionary artist to tour guide, theater technician, director of a language school, copywriter, communications coach and entrepreneur) and am now well into writing a trilogy based on writings found under the Antarctic ice in 1962. They tell the story of an ancient civilization existing there tens of thousands of years ago which laid the foundations of all our myths and legends.
This "fabulous fable" is however backed by "fabulous facts", in other words documentary "proof" that all of this is true !!!
This civilization was unique in that everyone living there had total recall of all their previous incarnations. This had a certain disadvantage though in that they were constantly recognizing others from former lives - and in the end this led to so much celebration that the purpose of their existence in this "Paradise" began to get eclipsed....
That is only one of the many aspects of this multi-faceted book, which include: "forbidden archeology", alternative history, conspiracy theory, allegorical fantasy, past life memory research... and several underlying spiritual truths...
Another example: the "past life" aspects is going to create links with the present when we release the following advertisement (you are the first people I'm sharing this with by the way, it's not the totally final version, but you'll see what I'm getting at...):
I actually wrote the first version of this in 1974 but it is only now that I can add all these other multiple aspects and make it into a "meta-realist allegory". Exactly where the line is between the fabulous facts and fabulous fable is up to every individual reader to determine. But there are people who quite seriously tell me that they know in their hearts that it is all true !
Let's say it's designed to open minds. And will, I hope serve several purposes.
If anyone is interested we have a blog: http://www.zandernatis.com. Posted the front and back covers there today so you can see it there....
Hope I haven't taken up too much space/time here.
I am Hunter Moonshadow from Edmonton,Alberta. I've ben a practicing witch for a year or so. A very dear friend told me how the craft helped her and I started readingand leaning. My friend has since passed on but we share a bond still.
Moving on, I want to find more local witches to lean and pal around with.

Hi everyone. I'm Jenny. Don't really know what to say, just wanted to announce myself :)
Hello. I just got here last night. I was introduced by good friend and fellow member Haylee Lynn. :)
I'm here b/c of a passion for gardening and b/c I want to see peaceful coexistence of all Faiths, and this seems like just the place for both. :)
welcome Magdalaina! Hallowe'en/ Samhain is celebrated big where I live and last night was full of fire works, bangers, squealers and the like going off in all directions for hours on end (traditionally it all starts a few weeks BEFORE the 31st) with bangers going off randomly, but the recession helped curb that somewhat...and bangers will no dounbt be going off for a couple more weeks or so sporadically here Blessings )O(
I am an eclectic neo-pagan psychospiritual modern hedge witch. I despise labels (snicker) but here we are.
I entered the craft through adversity and its been a long and winding path to where I am today. I have my apprentice piece, I am (I suspect) coming to a point of closure of a masterpiece. I am particuarly interested in anything pertaining to the non-denominational experience relating to the Thelemic abyss. The fall. The Scarlet woman. Chorazon. The babe of the abyss.
Don't question it - Its in the wind. In the bone.
Its why I'm here frankly... Looking for information, advise and greater clarity - a more defined framework to hang up to embody a spiritual experience.
