What kinds of jobs are out there for the occult or paranormal?






What kinds of jobs are out there involving the occult or the paranormal? How would I get started in wanting to do something like that for a living? and what qualifications would I need and how would i get them? Are there college courses or a special training?


  1. You can learn to do cold and hot reading and rip people off, cheating them out of the money they actually work for. Protip: none of that crap is real.

    • No one really proofed it is not real/or real… it’s like a religion. My father doesn’t believe in God or anything alike, because he says it’s not real, I never saw it heard it or … it never helped me… ppl build churches and draw icons to trick stupid…well what to say… maybe true maybe not.
      And how many ppl believe and pray. And I DO know that angels Are real… because I saw… and I have some proof and my mom too… and …
      Occult is close to spiritual word… and we r not only physical been but spiritual as well, and while it’s not crap and it’s real it’s not for everyone.
      When ppl say there is no God no spirits no… whatever it sounds to me like it doesn’t exist because I don’t know about it… i am not capable to see so it’s never real.
      while i like that u have yr own opinion. that actually nothing new and most ppl have the same with you. The good part of it is, that u r not going to go and pay money to cheaters, who pretend to know and just lie to you about your future, or the help that they r offering on spiritual level
      Bless Be.

  2. Well dear, get a day job. I read Tarot, perform spells, cleanse homes of negative energies and I have a regular job. The occult does not pay the bills.
    Blessed Be

  3. You are playing with fire whenever you dabble in the occult.
    each time you do a reading or get a reading, you will take on tormenting demons.
    and the rest of your life will be worse then it ever was.
    Because the devil does not like anyone,. but he likes to ensnare you.
    repent and get saved for the Name of Jesus is the only way to be free from demons.

    • Wow is pretty much all I can say about your comment dear, you are a perfect example of the brainwashing that the churches have inflicted on ignorant and trusting people. Have you read the bible?? Ever?? Try to read it again and then post a new message. Jesus was a man, a very spiritual man, a great man perhaps but a man nonetheless. These demons of which you speak are creations of the church, corruptions of ancient pagan gods,goddesses and spirits that were venerated long before Christianity.When the church came into power it demonized those deities and made their veneration a “sin” punishable by hell fire in order to scare those they could into conversion and those who would not convert were burned,hung,and tortured and killed.Google the inquisition. The devil is a creation of humans- I am not saying that there are not entities that could possibly be described as evil but there are people about which you could say the same. Look in the dictionary for the definition of occult-it means obscured or hidden,not evil by any means. And as far as being tormented by demons when doing readings that is just ridiculous,if you dont know what your talking about and you think the occult is evil then why are you on this site??? Im pretty sure “new age spirituality” is kinda right up there with the occult. Im not trying to be mean but trying to scare someone with a genuine interest in their spirituality into thinking the way you do is just wrong. If you wish to be lead blindly that is your choice but you should not attempt to push those beliefs upon others.

  4. unfortunately, because occult and paranormal research are not by any means mainstream (although the selfless work of people like Dean Radin and the like is attempting to change that) , paranormal research is like science was in the renaissance period. If you can afford to do the research yourself, then good. If not, it can only be a “hobby”, or “calling”, or whatnot. There are no genuine college courses or real training, it’s just experience and mentoring, really.
    The occult, especially, is not really something that can be taught. And, even though the occult is not, as some people like to believe, an instant “ticket to hell”, it can get dangerous, especially in these days.
    Anyways, there are no jobs in paranormal research, I’m afraid. But hey, science is fun, you can always go for that!

  5. Yeah, the occult helped pay for my new house and my porsche! Seriously though, it is more of a hobby, but if you get a degree in paranormal studies or forensics or criminal justice, you can investigate strange stuff sometimes, rarely, but still it beats being an accountant.

  6. Oh yeah, I forgot! Just join the VATICAN. They have exorcist, demonologists, and a slew of occult researchers.
    The pay isn’t great, but you can dabble in the mysteries!

  7. There are many fields of work within spirituality / occult (if you want to call it that) It depends what path you are drawn to or where your skills are.
    I would suggest finding a course to learn spiritual development. This will lead you to understanding what your skills are and into a path. After many years of struggling with the experiences I was having from childhood, I found some courses, or they found me…;) and it led me to my path today where i work full time in the metaphysical….
    For me, every day is different and I perform different tasks for different cases.
    It’s not always an easy path to take, but if you are like me… nothing else will satisfy you.
    Are there people who give cold readings & rip people off? yes… but there are people out there who are legitimate and giving life changing connections and accurate insight; whilst educating people on the reality of spirits… not what you see on tv.
    People are quick to have a rant about the occult without having any true understanding of what it is, what is involved and how it actually works. When you sit down and explain how such things work 90% of people realise that it is far less spooky, or mythical and a lot more relevant.. The other 10% refuse to listen and so they miss out on discovering the power that is within all of us…. that’s ok, we are all on our own journey.
    You may not work within the industry full time straight away, though if you are focused and dedicated… you will end up doing what you love. In most cases there is no set path to this type of work, it is something that you will carve out on your own, which makes it more unique and exciting.
    I wish you the best of luck on your journey and hope you discover your path soon – blessings

    • What did you actually study,would you please tell in a bit detail? I am very much interested in paranormal field but doesn’t know yet how exactly to start a career/Metaphysical

  8. I have demons talking in varanasi …….in my own vicinity.
    where ever I go they follow me….Can studies be arranged here..how they work etc for benefit of mankind.

  9. Wow, reading all these posts… Everyone has an opinion on everything. It may be right, it may be wrong. Let’s just hope like hell we’ve all led a life worthy enough to participate in whatever may be beyond death’s door. As far as a job in paranormal activity, try your best to hook up with some of these society’s around us and maybe you can get a start there.

  10. What if I want to learn about the occult sciences to enter cults that may be doing practices against the law so I can, in a way, tell the police of their illegal practices, but if they are legal I leave them. Is that possible as a sort of investagator job?
