“If power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, then the omnipotent creator of heaven and earth must be the most evil son-of-a-bitch who ever lived. Non-Christians, we are told, are damned to hell because they have not accepted Christ as their personal savior. Non-Catholics, we are told, are damned to hell because they have rejected God’s Holy Church. And Catholics, we are told, are damned to hell for bowing down to and worshiping graven images. The irony of organized religious thought is the damnation of all, regardless of belief or quality of life.” Magus Tsirk Susej
“It is too often assumed that if a magician curses someone the victim will meet with an accident or fall ill. This is an oversimplification. Often the most profound magical workings are those which engage the assistance of other unknown human beings in order to effect the magician’s will. A magician’s destructive wish toward another may be justified by all laws of natural ethic and fair play, but the force that he summons may be wielded by a mean, worthless person-one whom the magician himself would despise-in order to complete the working. Oddly enough, this manner of operations can be employed for benevolent or amorous-rather than destructive-ends with equal success.“ The Satanic Rituals – Anton LaVey
There are those in Satanic Magic who practice Cognitive Magic; the use of the mind for the sake of magic ritual. Some practice this exclusively and never actually enter an inner sanctum except in their minds. There have been doubts concerning the effectiveness of this method and some actually claim greater success resulting from rituals than that of “in body” rituals. The one thing that is known for sure is the practice does exist.
The power of the mind is at the core of magic and the practice of rituals. Even the rituals performed as in a group setting is at its essence – cognitive. The thoughts of the practitioner actually drive the ritual and even the “sacrifice ritual” must use the imagination to be fully realized. Thoughts and ideas are what stimulate the Magus to open a ceremony and expect a result from a casting of a spell or hex. Without the powerful mind, we as followers of the LHP are rendered impotent.
Astral Projection has opened the way for the Satanist to use that all-powerful organ – the brain. Trans-versing time and slipping the bounds of gravity, the practitioner can easily create, perform and participate in the results of magic without physically leaving the comfort of their home.
As for exercising the imagination, children create a virtual reality in their minds from the age of toddler. As a child grows older, the accepted norms of life indelibly snuff out the power of the mind in exchange for being accepted by peers. No one wants to feel like an outcast at such an impressionable and critical age of development and so those things – paranormal and otherwise – are discarded from the child’s psyche. From that point onward, the magic is forgotten (or ignored) and the conformance in society takes priority.
There are however, a select few who do not forget; do not abandon that which is given to us all. They may leave the path for a while or even learn to mask their talent but for those few, magic remains real and the cognitive ability remains firmly intact. In the case of a Satanist who takes this gift and fully develops it, the sky is not the limit………….there are no limits.
I know several such individuals and I must admit, their ritual results are astounding and impressive. One such acquaintance has what I call “razor-sharp” cognitive skills. She was the victim of religious and sexual abuse from a young age at the hands of a quasi-christian cult. Her only fond memories from childhood revolve around magic and her unique gift. She is probably the most normal people in appearance; friendly almost to a fault and yet she has the ability to wage satanic war upon those she wishes to suffer.
As with most people who challenge her ability in half belief, she delivers promptly with what she calls her “candle trick“. A candle of anyone’s choosing is lit in the center of a room; well beyond her reach. There is no mambo jumbo or waving hands around or any other of the parlor trick tactics. She simple stares at the flame and after a moment, the flame extinguishes.
Exactly one minute later, she makes the candle relight. For those who still doubt, she stares at the candle and again extinguishes it.
She smiles and everyone witnessing nervously laughs.
Her satanic curses are backed up with results. Her sister’s love interest cheated; 3 months later after a cognitive ritual, the love interest died of prostate cancer. Recently, her power was made manifest for a member of our coven who had been sued for child support in a bitter divorce. The petitioner was killed in a car wreck two weeks ago. Coincidence? Perhaps, save the fact that she told our group what would happen before it actually happened.
I have huge respect for these gifted ones who continue to develop that gift. I do not have that gift but I admire those who do. Using the mind to its fullest is something all humans should strive for. For those reading this who have this wonderful gift, I am truly envious.
BTW, Her father who abused her was burned alive in a house fire…………drunk and passed out. See, something good does come from bad situations……….occasionally.
Until next time,
