Satan and Demon Existence

CAUTION: Do not operate heavy equipment or make life-changing decisions during or after reading this blog post. Side-effects include headaches, nausea, vertigo, and an abnormally high volume of alcohol consumption. Reader discretion advised. 🙂

There are always skeptics and believers. Convincing either side to consider the other’s point of view is a very daunting task. Some beliefs are hardwired into our cognitive motherboard when we are children. Sometimes preconceived notions are so deeply engrained, no amount of deprogramming can come close to changing the mind of those who do not (and will never) open their minds to even a possibility that someone else may have a valid point of view.

In some cases, it is similar to a vast continuum of audio geometry; the way humans translate sonic angles and cadenced measures of tonal (tonality) scales and tuning. Belief is certainly a matter of personal preference: why are major chords in music pleasing to some people and minor chords just as pleasing to others?the astral plane

At this point, you may ask “Why should I consider the belief that Satan and Demons truly exist?” or you may simply want to know what drug I am taking that makes a realist write about such an issue. No drug is involved, only my testimony which will be embraced by some and dismissed by others. The fact is, I have walked this ball of cosmic dust for over half a century and I do not plan to be here another 50 years. With the time I have, I feel a need to convey my experiences for those who will “consider”. The choice is yours……completely. First, let’s discuss human intelligence and why the human species is so cognitively unimpressive.

Look at your hands. Do you see anything? Bacteria lives on your hands and yet you cannot see the bacteria with the naked eye. (Some of you have more bacteria than others and I do not want to know what you have been doing with your hands.) The point is, up until the last half of the 1600s,  humans did not know that bacteria existed because we did not possess the tools to confirm its existence. Prior to that visual revelation, the believer may have said “I always wash my hands before a meal” and the skeptic may have said “While I take a healthy dump, pass the fried chicken”. So, could the skeptic avoid the possibility of necrotizing fasciitis or vibrio cholerae by simply professing “Bacteria does not exist?” At one time, humans also believed the earth was flat. Go figure!

Ok, so what about radiation? The believer may want to avoid having daily lunches near an X-ray machine. By contrast, the skeptic may plan an exciting two-week camping trip to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. If a dose of 500 roentgens within an hour is lethal to a human, two weeks may be more “fun” than any human can withstand. So, could the skeptic avoid death by simply professing “I have never seen radiation, so radiation does not exist?”

How about the wind, wifi, microwaves, UHF radio waves, radar beams, or cellular phone waves? Personally, I have never seen a bluetooth radio wave, so are those folks with a bluetooth earbud just talking to themselves? (Sometimes I really do wonder.) I have never seen a UFO but I certainly will not claim they do not exist. As we discover new frontiers, who can say what will suddenly become a fact in the future? After all, we do not know what is on the deepest ocean floor of our own planet.

There is a duality of astral landscapes and planes. The energy separating our three human dimensions (which are very limited) from the other dimensions and the veil of energy which serves as a quasi-gateway which allows a practitioner of magic to look to the past and find the future. We were; we are; we shall be; leaving a magical trail of breadcrumbs for our future brothers and sisters to follow.

The spirit world is much the same way because of the limited capabilities of our senses and our environment. Only those who have magical capabilities can transverse that boundary and interact with those from beyond. What I am trying to say is be open-minded and just because a concept is new or outlandish, don’t be so fast to dismiss the concept which does not fit our limited environment. After all, one hundred years ago there was no such thing as a “blog”.

Tips for Satanic Rituals

In the hierarchy of Satanic magic, we find spirits and entities with different powers, attributes, and desires. Learning to navigate the celestial sphere is important for those who are new to Satanic ritual and magic. Over time, you will become acclimated to your surroundings however, you must understand the nature of your ritual surroundings and the rules of those surroundings. 

Satanic women and Satanic rituals

Anyone who desires to master Satanic magical operations must understand the process takes practice. It is a sincere and deliberate investment in your future self which will allow you to reap the endless benefits of magical practice and Satanic ritual. Those who dabble in magic will never realize the achievement of their objectives. For this reason, you must continuously improve your practice, processes, and increase your knowledge by learning new methods to achieve your desired results. If perception is reality, then reality must be molded and formed to your will and desires. The desire of the dark-side is not always aligned with your desires. Through magical manipulation, you are able to formulate messages to allow your desires to be communicated and consistently met. This takes time and it is not an overnight process. None of the higher Satanic process are…………

The Satanic altar is a very sacred space for any practitioner. Whether you are a sole Satanic practitioner or in a Satanic coven, you’ll spend many hours at the altar perfecting your craft. For this reason, it is especially important to make your altar as comfortable and as enticing as possible. If you are a sole practitioner it may be beneficial to make the altar area a smaller space to fit like a glove. Having this cozy reinforcement will allow you to concentrate on the tasks at-hand as opposed to looking over your shoulder to see who has entered your lair. Using altar items (artifacts) from your past experiences is an excellent and effective way to silence cognitive dissonance while enticing your astral mind to move into higher realms.

If you are practicing Satanic rituals as a group, obviously you will need more room to facilitate adequate movement for the practitioners and depending upon the ritual you are performing, you may actually desire an outdoors setting as opposed to indoors. I find that being outside for certain Satanic rituals is stimulating and may improve the results dramatically however, you should use caution. If you are in an area that is not segregated and private, you should realize prying eyes will certainly observe your ritual. Some of your actions during a Satanic ritual may not be suitable for a public environment so always keep that in mind. Do not allow yourself to be placed into a compromising position in public.

Witches dancing during magical ritual

There is no such thing as drive-through Satanic magic. In our consumer society, we often believe there is an easy way to do anything however, in the case of the Satanic magical operations, this is simply not true. Those who are successful in the magical arts and ritual practice are those who have invested heavily in their own cognitive improvement and have indeed mastered the desires of the heart.

There are only a few ways humans can to do this; one is by learning (education) and one is by personal experience. The personal experience is perhaps the most effective manner of improving one’s Satanic magical abilities. The fact is, what you experience (especially when it is vivid) is what you retain and are able to articulate to a point of possible mastery in the future. Sure, you can read a book and the book may explain how to perform a certain task however, the problem with that particular method is you must baseline your experience against some “standard”. When you have a personal experience, you can draw upon that experience in the future and ultimately formulate your own conclusions for different Satanic  ritual situations.

Practice makes perfect and Satanic magical practice is no different. See my “Book of Satanic Ritual” for more information about Satanic rituals and magic. You can be very successful practicing Satanic rituals. It takes dedication of time, energy, and practice which allows you to be successful applying the higher Satanic processes and receiving the desired results from Satanic rituals. I wish you the best of success!

Sathanas ad Abundantiam

A very happy Black Friday to everyone! It is good to be writing my blog again. Thank you for taking the time to read my innermost thoughts.

There was a question on our Dark Arts forum recently which I thought would be a good topic to expand upon. The question was concerning the importance of “casting the circle” during a Satanic (or any other) ritual. This is a concept that divides many practitioners and baffles many acolytes so I thought I would provide some thoughts along those lines. For those who deny the existence of Satan and demons, you can return to whatever you normally do when bored.

In the realm of magical operations and processes, many practitioners call upon celestial beings to assist with a positive outcome of the working. At a very elementary level, this is akin to asking an old friend for help with a task which you are unable to complete on your own. You can simply use your telephone (symbolic to a process) and call the one with strength, expertise, knowledge, etc. to lend a hand. But what happens when you mis-dial and end up connected to the wrong contact? Herein lies the problem and the solution is the circle.Nude women on Satanic Altar

I am sure no-one reading this post remembers the old telephone “party line” (no, not $0.99 per minute) which was a communal phone line people shared with one another. Before making a call, you had to pickup the handset and listen to know if some else was using the line. If you heard a conversation, you simply hung up and made your call later. If this were used today, we would have a multitude of people going “bat shit” waiting to make their call.

Now, imagine you are making a call (magically) to a familiar demon / spirit but while calling, another demon / spirit listens in on the call and responds instead. Since you can’t just magically hang up, there must be a ‘protection mechanism’ used or you will end up releasing an entity which you are unable to “put back into the bottle”, metaphorically speaking. There is nothing like an obnoxious, belligerent, uninvited visitor to put a big wrinkle in the fabric of your ritual. The same fun can be had while someone hits you in the head with a mace, but that is a topic for another blog post.

The Circle is that protection mechanism. It helps to contain the entity as it first appears and you can symbolically “pull the plug” before full manifestation. Be aware, once an entity has fully manifested in our physical dimension, you may not be strong enough (spiritually, magically, or cognitively) to control the uninvited guest. Symbolically, one foot here and one there places the entity at a serious disadvantage however, once firmly here in our reality, it may be beyond your capability to control.

Another piece to this magical puzzle is an assumption made by many: Manifestation = physical, flesh, bone, goo, etc. Let’s look closer at this and sort it into categories. The fist category is Dimensional – this is limited to the 3 dimensions that we, as humans, are capable of perceiving through one or more of our senses. Dimensional manifestation is one which we perceive through an experience in a physical manner. This may be a temperature, image, sound, feeling, etc.

The second category is Metaphysical – this is neither limited by dimensions nor by perceptions. Metaphysical manifestation of a demon / spirit is “of the mind”. This often occurs on the astral plane during a ritual or during meditation. Just to really confuse the novice, there is also Dimensional / Metaphysical manifestations also, such as possession of the host’s body and mind concurrently. This is also a subject for another blog post.

While we are on this subject, let me explain Astral Presence. This is probably the most common form of quasi-manifestation for beginners in the dark arts. Astral Presence is the close proximity of an entity to the human yet the entity remains firmly on the other side of the veil. This is similar to feeling someone watching you when no-one is there; you feel like someone is in the room with you, or some experience someone (or something) “walking across their grave“; not a touch per se but a shiver up the spine. In my experience, these are brief and wonderful interludes which are calming and warming – but that’s just me.

My advice: Always cast a circle. You will be glad you did.

For more information on demons that I frequently call upon, take a look at my book Sanctum of Shadows Volume II.

Lucifer and Life

Luciferi Animalis 

We all go through dark periods in life; some darker than others. We are affected in different ways causing some to ‘take it in stride’ while others feel the full weight of the world. I have had my share of these excruciating episodes when it seemed the world itself was acting to pestle my very existence into dust. It is not always easy to rise above and in fact, some who are personally struck with high-velocity fail to recover to “before” the happening.

In nature, there are cruel events which happen everyday. It is survival of the fittest and only the strong and cognitively aware remain standing. Humans are animals and as such, we have only evolved in the art of deception because we are still, at our very core, bashing each others skull in on a daily basis (metaphorically speaking). Humans smile and lie while stabbing, clawing, and stomping the very life out of their fellow species. A nod and smile often work when stealing what others have worked their entire lives to save. Let’s heap some “It will be ok” on top of that and no is ever the wiser. What sweet delight watching our neighbor fail at an endeavor and we are somehow satisfied. Perhaps it is because the event did not happen to us or maybe it is our genetic predisposition to be “animals”…….nothing more and nothing less.

Happy Halloween

When performing any incantation, the culmination and focus of energy is vital and conjuration is no different. The focus of the group’s energy allows for the frenetic controlled chaos to be channeled into a powerful medium with fantastic results. The group begins building this energy long before entering the Inner Sanctum.

Eva, Ave Satanas! Vade Lilith, Deus maledictus est!! Gloria tibi! Domine Lucifere, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Rege Satanas! In the name of Satan, ruler of Earth, the King of the world, I command the forces of darkness to bestow their infernal power upon us and open wide the gates of Hell, And come forth from the abyss to bless this unholy treatise!

“As the ceremony is opened, you should pay close attention to vibrations, sounds, temperature changes, etc. Some demons manifest as slight changes in ambient lighting produced by candlelight. Others will bring an uneasy “chill” to the otherwise temperate conditions of the sanctum. I have experienced the movement of small objects caused by a quick puff of air from an undetermined direction. These are all examples however, none are constantly present. Demons are individuals (as we) and they make their entrance as they wish.” Aleister Nacht

Enjoy those delicious tidbits during your next ritual!

Satanists, Why the hostility?

I received an email asking about love and hatred, including the following comment:

My Dear Aleister,

My question is “Why all the hostility?” It seems that Satanists are all having a bad day – everyday! Do you have any thoughts on this?

I thought about that question for a few minutes and decided this person is absolutely right…..to a certain extent. In modern society, there seems to be much more hate and hostility on “Satanic” forums, especially when questioning the prevailing ideas and philosophies. This is not a matter of questioning another’s views or trying to understand a belief……far from it. It seems like these cliquish online groups amount to one big “asshole”. Thankfully, not all Satanists are “pricks and cunts”satanic-children

Once something is said it can never be taken back or retracted. Some people believe saying “I’m sorry” will fix any wrongdoings against someone. That is certainly not true. Whether a person apologizes for what they have said or the actions they have taken is superfluous. The fact is, words and deeds remain in place long afterward. It is a never-ending spiral; a circular topography, returning to conscious thought again and again. “Sorry” does not amend this cycle and the thought, deed, or word is forever released. We certainly need to look closer and when we do, we cannot (and should not) rely upon an apology to make things right because it simply does not, nor will it ever truly metamorphose a negative action or word into a positive.

When we have made a mistake or taken actions which were not meant to hurt someone, it is vastly different from having the intention to create harm. We can certainly see that some may misconstrue words and read more into the meaning or implication however, it is important to realize that the overall spirit may deliver those words with hostility, hate, or threat. Looking beyond the mere definition of a word is certainly important, especially when deciding if harm has in fact been done and something worthy of hate / harm truly occurred. In the meaning of the words and the context in which they fall will certainly define the user’s intent with a degree of certainty that a verbal attack was launched toward the receiver.

What are your thoughts? Leave a comment with your point of view.

Satanic Ritual and All Hallows’ Eve 2017

Sisters and Brothers,

As All Hallows’ Eve approaches, our coven prepares for the celebration as we do every year. We prepare the Sanctum for the ritual which not only objectifies Satan and the Hosts of Hell, but also allows the new initiates the opportunity to formally join the other coven members for the first time since initiation in September. This year, we have welcomed 6 new members into our growing covens. We all come together on the unholy night when the veil is thin and the threshold is transversed with evil.Satanic All Hallows Eve 2017

We prepare our altar with respectful sentiment and praise her devotion to our craft. On the night to come, she will freely give of her spirit and body, creating intoxicating evil power for the entire coven. She is to be exalted as the wicked and blasphemous mother, extending her desire to culminate in profane lust and satisfaction. It is her energy which opens the door and it is the invitation to devour the light, replacing with His truth and eternal darkness which has opened our eyes. She is the fountain of Satanic Blessings and we shall partake deeply of her impíos energy. Our new brothers and sisters begin their journey from Acolytes to proficient Satanists.

From the cloak of outer darkness, the energy has always required the symbol of devotion and the contortion of “self” into the overall group. For generations, sacrifice has been required to achieve the higher Satanic processes. The blood lines of the coven serve the Master in the continuance of tradition and prerequisite; His influence and guidance deeply engrained within the fabric of the coven. As blood is life, so is the vital application during certain magical processes. From vein to chalice, every drop used in the ancient methodologies; the scrolls of light and truth leading as the congregation hangs upon each and every spoken word. The sinister chant fills the chasm with energy and floods the Sanctum with every desire of our species. This is the night of bold indulgence, not hypocritical restraint. Our deeply seated natural instincts are released and those thoughts of the mind are made manifest to roam the Satanic Sanctum. We bathe in the glory of Satan and renew with zealous devotion our carnal desires; all things human and the flesh no longer denied.Bride of the Beast and Fall Equinox Feast

Candles glowing, illuminating the pentagram and the stone of wisdom with warmth and enticement. Flowing robes of satin and silver chains under hoods of black in shimmering focus cutting through the night. I love the mood of the Sanctum; either within walls or under the sky full of stars. Breath forms a vapor mingling as black candles are spent. Lucifer awaits quietly to pour the blessings of Hell upon those gathered. We seek and find the true bedrock and feel the claws of His realm. Open the door and call forth the darkness and it obeys our voices. “Lords of the deep, from spire to grave, come to fulfill our needs on a night so divinely evil.” We give and take as ebb and flow of dynamic energy from the deepest recesses of earth form and build.

Those who come shall surely be satisfied as desire overwhelms our senses. So above as so below when the sacred athame, blessed in her womb, separates the skin and vessels. Enter night and bind with and without all that is diabolical and damnable under the canopy of His world. So devilish and demoniacal are the impulses yielding unfathomable acts of Satanic satisfaction. Demons roam our earth and fill our spirits with hate and lust. We trample the holy and self-absolved; the symbols of restraint dashed upon the Sanctum floor. We eat of forbidden fruit and savor each taste, searching wildly for more. With nails of the tree we hammer deeply into the flesh. There is no shame for our victor favors the Lord of Flies. It is our turn to become drunken on the blood of the hypocrites! We answer to one (and only one) deity, Sathanas.

One quickly learns how satisfying pain can be to the practitioner. Such feelings of inescapable desperation are rich with energy delivering a heightened awareness only reached through the provision of resistance. Both body and blood selfishly guarded until reality ushers the finality of the act. Voluntarily offered sacrifice yields one level of awareness and yet the involuntary harvesting of energy provides a profound malevolence. Reaching deep inside the “self” produces the greatest intensity of Satanic energy. The Rootworkers of black magic have practiced these ancient arts for generations.nude woman on satanic altar

The benefit of rituals can often be felt for weeks after the event. Some become “addicted” to the rush of energy and the pursuit thereof is similar to the craving of a drug addict. While Satanism promotes indulgence, Satanists must also understand the physical laws of our 3 dimensions. If you smoke three packs of cigarettes per day, you may die of cancer; if you eat fatty foods every meal, you may have a heart attack or stroke. Too much of a ‘good thing’ is more than our fragile skin and bones can withstand. These laws are immutable because we have a “shelf life”. We are dying from the moment we are born.

In the virgin fields, Satanic seeds are planted which will grow. The sweet harvest will warm the stone and fill the air with spender and dominance for the coming generation. The youth are empowered with knowledge and groomed to replace old Satanists such as myself. Satan’s guidance will provide opportunities only dreamt of by my generation. There are those who will carry our traditions forward as the beacon of survival. I look into their eyes and know the future is in capable hands and the survival spirit is deep within their hearts. Satan will lead them into His coming age. Praise Sathanas! Praise Lucifer!satanic-woman-satanism

I wish you the very best results from your magical workings. Satanic Blessings for your Satanic rituals on All Hallows’ Eve 2017! Satanas vobiscum. Palas aron ozinomas Geheamel cla orlay Baske bano tudan donas Berec he pantaras tay.

Black Candles Burn, All Minds Aligned

Deus Culpa

In the last few months, we have witnessed the legal implosion of the band Ghost; another in a long line of supposed greed-driven betrayals in popular society. I have been a fan of Ghost for many years, since their meager beginning and ascent into the stratosphere of stardom. Ghost band lawsuit is ongoing.My first album, Opus Eponymous, was sent to me by a friend in the UK. The album is vinyl (yes I am old school) and I was impressed with the “In your face” manner of delivery and unabashed praise of Satan (Sathanas). Very few things make such an impression so indelibly in my mind. The tunes were singable and melodic (not that I do not appreciate a growl or two from other bands) and the song Ritual was so infectious – you want to jump right into the chorus. That was in 2011 and needless to say, I awaited the sophomoric release that would prove Opus Eponymous and Ghost were simply a fluke or built to last. Enter Infestissumam.

Receive, Consume, Digest, Defecate

I followed the labor pangs of Infestissumam through contacts in Nashville, Tennessee although it was not praise. Having solicited vocalists to provide backing vocals, singing psalms for Satan in the “bible belt” was met with an overall rejection from all offers, including a quasi-ban through the local musicians union. The project backing vocals were provided later in Los Angeles; the City of Angels will never say “No” to money, regardless of the subject matter. Then came the issue of pressing the recording to be distributed. The problem being most manufacture of vinyl and CDs is accomplished by a limited number of companies; again located in and around the Nashville area. Who said the media is controlled by “the few”? Once released, the album substantiated Ghost as a band “who could go the distance”.

Fast forward to 2017 and we see the results of ego and avarice; the vital ingredients which actually created a sound like no other and propelled Ghost during the rise from Linköping to a place in music history, including a Grammy Award. Whether this was a band collaboration or one person’s vision, it required the work and contribution of many. The question will be answered in the courts, penance paid as prescribed, and the mystique of Ghost…..lost forever. To me, this is the real tragedy of the situation. It is almost a betrayal of all the fans, similar to the first time seeing Kiss without makeup and the fallout of the band members conducted in the public forum. Perhaps the human love and worship of “Mummy Dust” is ultimately to blame however, everything changes and all things ultimately become history.

Cry for Absolution

For me, all of this opens a wound which I have unhappily nursed since my own betrayal by my former manager in 2014. When someone from outside the circle takes a shot, it is easily dismissed; almost expected. When the knife comes from within, it is sometimes difficult to put into perspective. As they say, “opportunity makes a thief” but it is still a shock when it really happens but we must remember humans are animals and as such, we will lie, steal, etc. to further our own agendas and acquire as we desire. We as Satanists should understand this fact more than anyone else on the planet. Ultimately, we each have a primal obligation to improve our particular situation. Anyone who denies this tenant is simply lying to himself / herself. Turning the other cheek results in two cheeks slapped.

The life of a Satanist is sometimes a two-edged sword. From the circles in which we travel to the way we reconcile our lives, the knowledge we possess sometimes fails to adequately shield our feelings and deepest thoughts. We look to each new day with cautious optimism, always cognizant of those orbiting our relationship nucleus and remaining wary of climatic changes in those relations. We know full well that any moment the knives may become unsheathed and just like that, the dreaded deed is done.

Until next time,
