David writes a blog at DavidCottlesPodcast.com where he explains why the occult makes perfect practice and how it can be used to bring about magic.
He has a special interest in the occult and his fascination with the supernatural has been a major part of his life since he was a child.
“As a child, I was fascinated by the occult.
The things I did, the symbols I saw.
It was a fascination with things that were supernatural,” he said.”
When I was about five years old, I started to understand that the dark side of the earth was real and that the light side of it was real.
This is what you’re dealing with here, David.
I was a little bit frightened.
I didn’t know what to do with it.
I had this incredible ability to see things that are not visible to the naked eye. “
But then I started learning about the occult as a young man, and as I became more and more aware of the occult I began to see that the things I saw were the same things as those in the other world.
I had this incredible ability to see things that are not visible to the naked eye.
So I became intrigued by that.”
The first time David was involved with the occult was in a ritual where he was given a set of instructions by an older man in the room.
“I looked at him with this blank look.
I looked at this thing that was on the ground.
He said: ‘That’s a demon.
I knew that there was something there. “
That was my first experience with this idea of the darkness of the otherworld.
I knew that there was something there.
It felt really real.
It just didn’t feel real.”
The second experience I had with the demon is I was doing my rituals in the old church.
I did my rituals to the dead, which was an incredible experience.
“When I did the ritual to the living, I got this feeling that this thing was there, that there were things in this room that were alive.
But it wasn’t real.
I felt like I was dreaming.””
I started to think about the things of this world that were real, but I couldn’t quite connect them to the real world.
So that’s when I began reading about the dark matter in general.
I read about how dark matter is a kind of the energy that gives life energy, and I started thinking about dark matter as the energy we use to create and sustain life on this planet.””
Dark matter is actually a kind or a material that exists between galaxies, which is why we call it the galaxy cluster.
It makes up a lot of the mass of our galaxy.
The dark matter that’s in our galaxy is called the dark energy.
That was the realisation.””
I was also reading about how we can make use of dark matter and dark matter made of dark energy, the stuff that’s around in the universe, to make things happen, to create life.
That was the realisation.”
There’s a lot to be said about that, David.
“But while David was reading, he was also having these dreams.”
At first, I would wake up and think that I was seeing these little drawings that were kind of like a ghostly thing.
I would say: ‘It’s like my life has changed.’
But then I would look at my hands, and my hands would look like these ghostly things.
Then I would think, ‘Is it really happening?
Is that real?’
I would just sit there and just stare at them.
Then, I’d start to see the dark stuff, and then I’d go, ‘OK, this is a little weird, but let’s try it.’
I had no idea what was going on.
“David was able to break the trance and was able make contact with the entity, which gave him his first insights into the dark world.”
That was the first time I got a glimpse into this universe that’s out there.
That’s when my imagination started to expand.
I just saw the whole picture.
I saw how everything in the whole universe worked, how everything was connected and how everything existed in this universe.
That changed my whole outlook on life.””
My second experience was actually when I was teaching.
My teacher was teaching in the United Kingdom.
I’d been going there for four years and it was a really beautiful place.
We were having the usual class lectures, we were just having fun and having fun, enjoying it, but suddenly I started seeing these things that I had never seen before.
I thought: ‘This is going to change
