Hello! I'm from Europe, and came here to find out more about occultism.
Pardon on my ignorance.... hard to find real info on occultism.

Eh... Where to start... I have this friend. He's been onto occult for 2 years now. To be honest, at first I tought he had lost. I really, sincerely tought he was insane, but he acted all normal expect for the occult stuff.
Until 2 weeks ago... He he showed me something... rather interesting.

He took a coin (2 euro coin), placed it between his palms and closed his eyes.
After a while he asked me to hold out my arm. He dropped the coin to my hand.
Now here is where it gets interesting. The coin was hot! Like as if he had held it in a fire for a few seconds. It almost burned my palm.

Now I don't know what to believe in anymore :<

First step would be to try occult stuff my self I presume. Could I get some hints/tips on where to start? I hear meditation is a good way to start, but how to?
