Before I begin to pontificate wildly, I invite you to read the Satanic Devotional Prayer post. It has connected with over 70 individuals who have emailed. The author requested to remain anonymous and I will respect that wish. I will say “thank you for allowing me to share it with the world!”
I would like to use this blog post to answer a few frequently asked questions as in Most Frequently Asked Questions – Most Frequently Given Answers Part 1, posed by guests who have visited AleisterNacht.com and emailed me seeking answers. As I have stated many times before, I am happy to respond to questions to assist someone with their research. I do not claim to have all of the answers however, after 25+ years as a practicing Satanist there are very few things that surprise me anymore.
Question #1: “I have recently read your Book of Satanic Magic and want to experience more in Satanism. My husband is not open-minded and I am afraid to talk to him about this. If you were in my situation Magus Nacht, what would you do?”
Answer #1: In my opinion, people change and evolution is very healthy for a high quality of life. I understand your apprehension however, you must be honest with yourself. On one hand, if you tell him your desires and he truly loves you, I believe he will respect your wish and support you in your journey. Conversely, if he does not love you enough to support your decision he will probably try to “control” you; at first with dialogue and later with more aggressive methods. Either way, I recommend being honest with yourself and exploring Satanism.
Question #2: “Have just been reading your book Book of Satanic Ritual which had arrived a week ago. Have ordered your other two books but still in the post. You mentioned you can use either silver or gold candlestick on your altar. As far as I have read, seen etc it seems that only silver should be used and never gold as gold is associated with xtian/Christian beliefs.”
Answer #2: The idea that gold is of xtian association is a very common misnomer. I seriously believe it is because of the abundance of gold used in cathedrals, churches, etc. The implements of xtian ceremonies seem to always be gold or gold imitation however, there is neither a requirement nor a prohibition against the use of gold for Satanic purposes. I am personally quite fond of gold although, the extreme price of gold almost makes its acquisition as a ritual implement impossible. I recommend you use whatever you desire. Satanism does not require dogma nor does it dictate compliance to anyone’s ideology except that of our Master Satan.
Question #3: “You mention crystals can be used on altars. What’s the significance of using them?”
Answer #3: Crystals are a wonderful addition to your altar since they tend to be not only pleasing on the eyes, but crystals can be helpful during energy rituals. Crystals can actually store small amounts of energy and some followers of Satanism and Witchcraft will carry a small crystal with them every day. Crystals are also used during healing rituals.
Question #4: “I have read differing opinions of the demon Belial concerning motives, powers and abilities. What is your belief of Belial?”
Answer #4: Belial is one of the Four Crown Princes of Hell, representing the North and the Earth Element; most people agree with that statement however, the beliefs diverge exponentially from that point onward. He is a very, very skillful demon who leverages the primal desires of humans and encourages the liberation of Satanists from any self-imposed guilt or conscience. He is one of the original group who assisted our Master Satan in establishing the truth of the world. He should not be provoked to anger as he will destroy as he pleases. “Belial, bless our ritual from the dark earth. Unleash your wrath upon those who would desire to bind us.”
Question #5: “Are there meditations one uses that are specific to Satanism?”
Answer #5: Meditation is very beneficial for Satanists. Whether preparing for an upcoming ritual such as the Grand Climax (next week!!) or simply rejuvenating the mind and spirit, Satanic Meditation allows the practitioner to exercise the cognitive magical abilities. Magic (especially ritual magic) requires sustained focus that Satanists must practice and build up to in order to perform successful operations. Meditation allows the practitioner to exercise the mental faculties in order to achieve and maintain high levels of energy. I meditate in bed, getting comfortable and allowing my mind to “drift in a controlled manner” until reaching a state of feeling separated from my physical location. Read More Here

“Questioning everything is the essence of Satanism and it is this self-preserving reflex that protects the Satanist from becoming a vicim. The rationality of “belief without substance”becomes absurd and unbelievable.”

“The harmony of soul and body – how much that is! We in our madness have separated the two, and have invented a realism that is vulgar, an ideality that is void.”
