Occult generally has its relation to the supernatural events, circumstances and things which deal with supernatural beings. This has nothing to do with the realm of the earth and is associated with the evil.
The fear of the supernatural may prevent you from engaging yourself with the occult shop, Wiccan shop and also the pagan shop. These stores are related to the arts of Witchcraft supplies and wizardry. These arts have the power to take a person’s mind into possession and play to what they like. However, playing with occult arts is considered very dangerous. It has taken the lives of many people who have tried to perform the art of occult.
The intervention caused to this art can be at different levels. It can just be as simple as getting your tarot read. This is often considered harmless. But if you have the intention of holding a discussion about the various beliefs and practices, then it can be at a completely harmless too. If you try to take into possession the mind and senses of a person, then you dangers are very high. There are possibilities of the evil practice back firing on you. The intensity of back firing may be graver than the harm initially intended to the other person. This impact may remain through out your life.
Meddling with things which are not of your understanding can cause great harm to yourself and the people around. Occult has to meddle with the spirits of the dead and the supernatural elements who do not follow the natural order of things. The famous lines by Shakespeare- “fair is foul and foul is fair” suggest that the supernatural elements like witches inverse the natural order and claim that the foul done by them is very fair. The art also invokes the spirits of the dead to perform evil according to human bidding. The dabbling with spirits may also lead to death. Once evoked, these supernatural elements have no end to themselves. One can see only destruction caused by them.
The art of occult also uses ritual candles, pendulum, metaphysical items, and talismans. These metaphysical items are things which do not have a physical presence. The effects of these objects can only be felt and can not be seen. The attempts to see these items with the naked eye (without supernatural help) will be in vain. The metaphysical supplies can be largely found in witchcraft shops.
The talismans are however amulets and charms worn by people to ward off these evils of occult. These are also made by the same persons who are involved into the supernatural elements. Ritual candles are used in the process of evoking the dead. Only the light of the candle id present at the time of evoking. This is done to ask questions and seek answers from the dead. It is also a way to find out the future.
There are many live examples of the destruction caused by the supernatural to life when evoked. Therefore, it is wise for one to avoid the art of occult for his own benefit and safety.
