    Occultism is the study of occult or hidden wisdom (to the occultist, it is the study of “Truth”, a deeper truth that exists beneath the surface). It can involve such subjects as magic, astrology, spiritualism, extra-sensory perception and numerology.   Secular witchcraft is a rising star in the witchcraft scene but it's also one that is heavily misunderstood. As a secular witch, I practice a style of witchcraft that is separate from my spirituality. The word separate is absolutely key. What this means that I may have spiritual or religious beliefs .

      Long story short, I was looking in the Religion section at witchcraft books and a woman handed me a booklet about God and being saved. I asked her if she'd ever read a book . This is a book about white magick and witchcraft as sources of wisdom, healing and positivity. Like Native American spirituality, to which true witchcraft is akin (some say both were carried by the people of Atlantis), the practice of white magick is based on the belief that that all life is sacred and interconnected in an unbroken Size: 1MB.

    Belief in European witchcraft has been described as an ‘elaborate fantasy that has no foundation in reality.’ Questions have been raised over whether witchcraft just produced large numbers of criminals, innocent victims of a ‘deluded judiciary system and an oppressive legal system,’ [1] or whether witches actually performed the misdeeds for which they had been prosecuted. Some Victorian authors (with more hope than knowledge) claimed that witchcraft belief was already done and dusted when they were writing in the s and s. More recent historians (among them Owen Davies) have shown us that, no, residual witchcraft beliefs were still around in the later 19th century, but that they faded rapidly in the next.

The book is a collaboration between an American philosopher and a Nigerian philosopher, and arises out of debates over the definition (or even the mere existence) of “African philosophy.” Hallen and Sodipo argue against the common notion that the term “philosophy” should only apply to the traditions of thought deriving from the Ancient Greeks.4/5(1).

Witches in ancient Egypt purportedly used their wisdom and knowledge of amulets, spells, formulas and figures to bend the cosmic powers to their purpose or that of their clients.
