    Say a person like me, who I pray and hope to remain steadfast in faith in God his whole life, and in his Messengers and relies only on God's guidance and not humans, but wanted to see a little how it is on the dark side :p

    What is the coolest ritual you guys would show me to participate in that would facilitate a mystic experience or healing or something.

    I'm actually going to go, this is not just theory, I'm going to go to some magic/pagan/wiccan ritual outside of my faith.

    Dark Side? Don't you think that is a little ignorant and rude? Maybe why there are no responses?

    @Link I realize this is an older thread, but in case you're still interested in this experiment, here is my two cents:

    Mystical work takes time and dedication. To get anything going, you'll have to devote several months of daily practice. If that's not what you want to go for, consider something else...

    Healing work is a big umbrella term, and also needs careful thought and preparation. I would strongly advise against purely magical cures for acute illnesses, injuries, and chronic conditions that need medication - don't replace the antibiotics, disinfectants, or other medication with magical cures! Magical cures work best when they take the entire situation into account and incorporate conventional medicine, body work, breath work, nutrition, psychological work - again, a long-term commitment. If you are not up for that, consider something else...

    Here's a fun thing: Divination. Choose a divination system such as Tarot, I-Ching, Runes, or Geomancy. Think of a question - not a yes/no question, but a wh- question, "Where are my keys" or something like that. Query the oracle of your choice. Record the question and result somewhere for later reference. Be creative in interpreting the oracle's answer. In the I-Ching, for example, part of the answer could be about "the superior man" - who could that refer to, your boss? Your 2ft 6 neighbor? Divination can also be done in a group. If you want to get into the spirit of it, set up a nice space with candles, a clean cloth for placing your tools on, some incense, and so on.

    Another fun thing to try that doesn't require long-term dedicated effort: Ask an entity or deity for something. Some Christian saints are approachable like this, as is Ganesha from the Hindu pantheon. He likes sweets, like fruit or candy. He's good at dealing with obstacles, and he can give you a push when starting out on . So offer him something he likes, ask him for help or even just to make himself known to you, to send you a sign. Keep your eyes open in the subsequent days. Again, this lends itself to a group setting.

    Enjoy!

    Magick requires Belief, among many other things like Practice, Study, Dedication, and Perseverance. Besides, isn't a sin or something for a Christian to practice magick?

    The necessary level of dedication and belief depends on the specific magickal act, I think. That's why I recommended divination and contacting benevolent entities: the threshold for success isn't too high.

    Is @Link a Christian? In any case, he was interested in dabbling in magick, so I assume he thought it through in terms of his own paradigm. But that's a good point. Think through any magickal act in advance.

    You should ask him personally but I guess he's likely a Twelver Shi'ite Muslim.

    Twelver - Wikipedia

    I have to admit I have no idea what the Muslim position on magic is. When I was in Turkey, a lot of "blue eyes" talismans and Hands of Fatima were for sale.

    I thought Shia Islaam strongly disapproved of magic?

    On the other hand, Islamic culture has Djinn, divination by coffee dregs, the aforementioned amulets against the evil eye, plenty of magic-y folk traditions!

    Maybe we could discuss these here, instead of performing a Calvinist filk of Islam?
