Our second guest for May 1st, 2010, is Phil Catalano. Phil is an aerospace engineer with more than 33 years in the aerospace and telecommunications field, having worked with NASA, JPL, Lockheed Martin, Ball Aerospace, and Raytheon. Phil is also a student/practitioner of Ancient Wisdom and Knowledge and the occult sciences, practicing Wizardry and Occult Magick for more than 35 years. He has degrees in Engineering, Anthropology, Psychology, and Parapsychology as well as having studied with several ancient mystery schools. Phil currently lectures, teaches courses, and gives presentations in Occult Magick.
Magick is often defined as “Causing change in accordance with one’s will.” Throughout history, there have always been individuals and secret societies that have been aware of how the subtle energies and natural forces work. These individuals and societies have used this knowledge to influence events and outcomes, often without observers understanding what was occurring. These societies and individuals have held these understandings as priviledged knowledge for use by spiritual masters and the trained adepts. Some of the more well-known include the Egyptian Mystery Schools, Kabala (Jewish mysticism), Freemasons, Rosicrucians, the Catholic Church, Native American Shamans, and wizards and prophets. Using tools such as amulets, crystal balls, magick wands, incantations, tarot cards, scrying mirrors, the casting of spells, and assorted herbs and spices, these practitioners gain greater awareness of the forces which affect outcomes.
Phil Catalano is one such practitioner, and he will discuss the history, theory, and practice of Occult Magick. Phil will discuss ethics in the use of Magick and the consequences of using Magick, both positively and negatively. He will also discuss several methods of spell working and self-protection as well as describe tools of the trade and how to use them. Those who listen in will definitely be SPELLBOUND!
