Charon's Path

I'm 25, and I live in Australia.

I have been a practicing/studying occultist for just over 10 years, but my interest in all things strange and unknown began when I was 10.

I am currently studying necromancy due to several bizarre experiences I have had in the last 3 years, specifically seeing and hearing spirits of departed people, and having dreams/visions of stepping through into another plane inhabited by the dead. I am also currently experimenting with shamanic journeying with moderate success, as it seems to be a useful parallel art.

I'm not a particularly morbid person; I went through a bit of a 'goth' phase in my teens, but grew out of it by the time I was 21 or so. I'm a friendly, outgoing person who likes to make people laugh, so necromancy, on the surface, would seem like an odd 'choice', but I feel like I'm on this path for a reason.

I have been 'cramming' in the last few months, pushing myself and my moderate mediumistic abilities to the edge, hungry for new ground and fresh experiences. I'm having some success deciphering the scattered whisperings of what I call 'Radio Dead' and I'm training my second sight in order to communicate with Them more fully.

This seems an interesting community, though from what I have seen, several members have been led astray by the 'morticians' tag...

I am keen to share thoughts, theories and experiences with other necromancers, and please feel free to ask me anything you like.

It made me wonder if they even read the community info, really.

I'm obviously just starting in this area myself, but if you ever wouldn't mind, I'd like to talk to you, hear about your experiences and such, and learn what I can from you.. Again, if you wouldn't mind all that.

I think that's it for now.
I would be pleased to talk with you about what I know, and my techniques.

Since commenting on each others' journals on LJ is a fairly restrictive form of communication, my MSN details are: nu_cult_king at hot mail dot com.

Looking forward to seeing you online ;)
what's necromancy again? it sounds like romancing the dead...
Necromancy is divination by raising the spirits of the dead. The word derives from the Greek necros "dead" and manteia "divination".

I direct you to:

As for "romancing the dead" I believe may be thinking of necrophilia, which has no part in Necromancy, despite various authors' *cough*Leilah Wendell*cough* claims to the contrary.

It isn't even a 'dark' art as far as I'm concerned. If I want to call up and have a convo with somebody who has passed on, I don't understand how that can be construed as evil or dark. Hell, John Edwards* does it, and he's a celebrity!

Let go of rigid, religion-enforced ways of thinking, and try to understand the unusual and unknown.

Using Necromancy, I have brought comfort to several people who have had loved ones pass on. Being able to contact and communicate with the recently disincarnated gives the Necromancer major potential for doing good in the world.

Ignore what movies and video games and roleplaying games try to tell you about Necromancy; it is a subtle art, and has little to do with calling up zombies and skeletons and sending them on killing sprees...

*Footnote: John Edwards may or may not be a legit medium.
i've never really had an incident with the spirit world, and i definitely have a hard time believing it can happen.

i work at a funeral home, most of the time alone, and i've expirienced odd occurences but i wouldn't quickly point fingers at "ghosts".

i don't see it as dark, though, more silly if anything
Well, I've never flown in a helicopter either, but I'm still willing to believe that other people have...
