Seeing as this is like a introduction post to The Occult Blogger I thought i should quickly go over what is the Occult first?
The word Occult has a very old meaning, it comes from the old Latin word “Occultus” which means the study of the hidden, secret, paranormal.. The word occultus also been referred to like a science (or class in school).. So in a way we all study the Occult in some way or another, whenever we ponder on space, learn new concepts, new sciences, whenever we perform meditation or go on a spiritual journey, whenever we learn some other aspect of looking at life. All these can be broken down into deeper thoughts or understanding.
And religions are part of it as well, there is nothing separate as they do the same, studying the unknown.
What needs to be addressed and made clear straight off the bat, is that the Occult is not an evil word or action or field, it is the very fabric of deeper thought. No one can help but think deep on these matters, it is but human nature to think.. That is a common misconception of conditioning.
The term Occult has on occasions been referred to a religious or magical organisations or orders, basically wherever unexplained aspects of life are delved in to the word Occult has been used. While on occasions some of these organisations have on occasions been linked to sacrifices and rituals that many would judge as wrong, many are not like this and also to study the Occult you do not have to be part of a Cult..
An Occultist is a single person who studies the arts or the unknown, sometimes referred to as a witch or sorcerer. These people are focused on trying to understand further what is hidden. Today, the Occultist could be referred to searching for god, or enlightenment or truth… Whatever it is it is all the same element, the Occult is the understanding of what we cannot see…
