The importance of leaving toxic occult communities.

Don't be afraid to say good riddance to bad rubbish.

Don't be afraid to say good riddance to bad rubbish.

When first jumping into the deepend of the occult, one may typically find themselves in groups, especially online, where various personalities are vying for attention and engagement.

In many of these same groups, the admins/mods seem to take a hands off approach on their communities, which can lead to the rise of some very toxic personality traits surfacing, especially among occultists (who already have sizeable egos.)

I've seen these communities destroy people's confidence and call it a job well done. Rampant bigotry and racism can be readily found as well.

I've had friends commit suicide because of being bullied in some of these same online groups.

The egos in the room were so huge, everyone attacked everyone else for attention.

The communities themselves, as I've researched them, started causing toxic changes in me, as well.

I became more prone to attacking those I would have normally ignored as trolls. Instead of letting their petty little attacks bounce off, I let them in and engaged. This was much to their delight, of course.

And eventually, it delighted me, too.

Leave the self-important cunts and cultists to themselves.

In the end, I was able to separate myself from the distractions that these online brain chem laboratories do to me. I focused more on projects of worth and staying off the online portals unless it was for "official business."

Once I disconnected from these toxic communities, I found myself feeling healthier, stepping more into my power and awareness of the nature of things. It was like walking through a trial of hate and being cleansed of sin by the time I walked out.

Since disconnecting from these types of communities, I've accomplished more magickal works in one year than I have in the five previous.

That's progress.

So, yeet those shitty toxic communities. Join ours instead.
