Now here’s a card that most of us would prefer not to run into too often! When the Devil card appears, most people tend to feel that there’s trouble ahead – and often they associate this card with the doing of evil, and therefor fear it as well. But, in some ways, this is a misunderstanding of the principle the card truly represents in life. Certainly it can appear to indicate evil acts, trouble, strife and conflict – but on most occasions we have more control of events than we might at first believe. And it is our lack of belief that causes most of the problems. You see, one of the Inner mysteries of this card is that it relates to our basic instinctual needs – those things which confirm to us that, like it or not, we are animals. Our survival needs, like hunger, thirst, protection, warmth, safety are ruled by the card, as are our sexual desires and needs.

However, for some mysterious reason we have allowed ourselves to become separated from many of our base-line instincts, even sometimes relating in a negative or distorted fashion toward them. Our ability to think has got in our own way here. As a result, we build multitudes of problems around what should be the fulfilment of our own animal instincts – eating disorders, sexual disorders, alcoholism….the list is extensive. Even if we don’t actually have a disorder as such, we can have hang-ups, inhibitions, insecurities, fears. And it is these thought patterns, and the behaviours that go with them that cause the Devil card to have such a bad reputation. The important thing to remember here is that, this being the case, by shifting our viewpoint, altering our perspective, we can change the way we feel about the things in the Devil’s domain. And in achieving that, we set ourselves free to be who we are. So on a day ruled by the Devil, look deeply at your responses and feelings about this area of instinctual response. Look into your fears, and try to see if they have any basis in reality. If you find inhibitions in these basic areas, try to examine them. Locate their source……and then try to let go and move on. Remove the restrictions and limitations that narrow the boundaries of your horizon.

Development for Beginners
Book Details
Development for Beginners: The Census of Hallucinations was one of the SPR’s first collaborative efforts. It presented findings from sane people who had experienced hallucinations and apparitional experiences. In 1886, the results were published into a work called Phantasms of the Living, which continues to serve as a reference for today’s parapsychological literature.

Elements of the Psychic World: A fascinating and curious case that was the inspiration behind the 1971 best-selling book by William Peter Blatty The Exorcist. In the book, later made into a film, a young girl is possessed by the devil and subject to exorcism by a Roman Catholic priest, but in the original 1949 case that inspired the book, the subject was a 13-year-old boy.

Tarot for Beginners: Interest in the Tarot grew quietly over the next few decades, until it reached unprecedented popularity in the U.S. in the 1960s. Since that time, a variety of new decks, philosophies, and approaches to reading the Tarot have developed. Where occultists used to argue for a specific set of interpretations that must be memorized in order to read the cards, 21st-century mystics see these things differently, emphasizing intuition over rigorous study. Many argue that as society develops and changes, so do the messages available in the Tarot. However, it is still considered useful to begin ‘at the beginning,’ with a basic understanding of the principles of Tarot as they were developed through the Tarot of Marseilles, and later, the Waite-Smith deck.

Elements of the Psychic World: In November 1889 an investigator named Percy Woodstock asked Dinah to take him to the woodshed where she had reported seeing a strange man. To Woodstock’s amazement, from the middle of the empty shed a few feet away came the clearly audible voice of an old man. It cursed them both in a deep, gruff voice, using language Woodstock would not record. It said, ‘I am the devil, I’ll have you in my clutches, I’ll break your neck.’ Woodstock talked to the voice for several hours, during which it admitted causing the fires, spreading the manure, smashing the windows and moving objects. Eventually it calmed down and admitted it was only doing the haunt-ings for fun.
