I thought it'd be interesting to hear about other initiate's occult experiences. Particularly I believe it is good idea to classify our experiences according to the Grade we were working at.
For example as I began the Grade of Theoricus dealing with the Elemental Air, I faced with constant distraction and visionary delusions. Or in Zelator Grade which is dedicated to the Elemental Earth, I meet sorts of digestive problems and uncontrollable sexual impulses at the earlier months .
Or even it would not be worthless if we talk about our friends' experiences we have heard of.
Probably, the more specific the descriptions, the more useful and inspiring.
