The Speed of Satanic Knowledge

I received a question via email this week which I want to answer in this blog post (thank you Asmeria). The question: “What is the quickest way to become an enlightened and proficient Satanic magician?” Over the years, I have written plenty of blog posts and articles about “drive-through knowledge” so , today I want to focus on one thing a practitioner can do to further his / her Satanic knowledge. aleister nacht satanism

Before I address the question, I would like to provide an excerpt from my book Sanctum of Shadows Volume II Corpus Satanas.

“If you do not feel you are learning as much as you want, there is a reason. The fact is, you may be reading this very sentence for the fifth or sixth time; trying to understand the meaning of this passage. Until you have a total grasp and have mastered what He wants you to master, you will not proceed any further in your studies and learning. Satan sets the tempo; He himself sets the tone of your learning event and overall acquisition of knowledge. He truly knows your abilities and while you may think you can handle more than He provides, as Jack Nicholson said, “You can’t handle the truth!!”  It is important for you to come to terms with reality, as it is not a derogatory statement when Satan communicates “you are not ready for the next chapter, the next event or next experience”. He will meticulously break down the knowledge into smaller elements of which you will be able to understand. He will not set you up for failure!”

Some of the tools and tactics I use today are the products of trial and error; success and failure. I would try to find someone I thought would be knowledgable about the occult arts and talk to them or ask them to help. This was back in the 1980s and there were not many people who would openly discuss magic with a stranger: it was almost unheard of during that time. I went down countless metaphorical “dead-ends” during those years and wasted a lot of time in the process. Finally, after finding Hoodoo (and surrogate occult family) in New Orleans, I was able to make good progress on my LHP journey. As I have said many times before, I would have died in a back alley with a dirty needle in my neck had it not been for them.

Once I had experienced the true power of energy manipulation (magic), I wanted to learn everything I could about the topic. There were very few books which I could get access to and most of them were based upon Anton LaVey’s beliefs which contributed nothing to my “practice” of magic. Today we have the internet and answers to any question are a few clicks away however, if you wanted to read about some subject (or someone), you had the library or a few mom-and-pop bookstores. There were a few magazines about magic although most “respectable” bookstores would not carry anything about witchcraft, unless it was material geared toward identifying witchcraft practitioners to be used by xtians and the church. It would be littered with statements like “Anyone who denies jesus is god’s son is a witch”. By this idiotic statement, all atheists are “witches” which makes even less sense than a politician’s speech.

aleister nacht satanOne of the first books which I acquired was The Book of the Law by Aleister Crowley and I would read every time I got out of bed – not just read it but absorb every word and hunger for more. I would read cover to cover and begin again. I made notes in the margins and correlated every sentence which was similar in content looking for a better understanding; a more complete ability to apply the knowledge. Today, people skim through a book and claim to either know the material or quickly dismiss the content while struggling to understand the most basic of any subject matter. They hurry to become the masters of their chosen domains for recognition, respect, admiration, etc. as authorities in an authoritative world.

I am a visual learner and I like to know how all the pieces of a subject fit together before learning the endless caveats which surround any subject. Obviously some topics require a thorough understanding of the subject matter before performing the associated tasks. For instance, if the aspiring surgeon was handed a surgical book and scalpel and told to experiment with a few surgical procedures during the first year of medical school, things could become quite interesting and perhaps dangerous as well. There are prerequisites in any subject and those should be respected. There is a time to apply what has been learned and the same logic applies to the practice of magic.

In my early days of magic, I became frustrated for that precise reason. As a self practitioner, I had failure after failure and my recovery plan was always the same: “I’ll try harder”; whatever the fvck that could possibly mean. It wasn’t that I was not trying hard enough, the root cause was the fact that I did not have a sufficient grasp of the information so I was ending up in the same situation over and over. The very first successful magical operation I performed showed me that I could hurry through everything and fail or I could allow myself time to absorb and succeed. The answer was simple and over the years as I broadened my magical horizons, as I would feel the sense of urgency begin creeping in, I would step back and remember the first time and the valuable lesson resulting from that experience: “Stop, stop, stop, goddamnit, stop!” and with a deep breath, that is what I have done over 35 years as a Satanic magic practitioner.

Take a few moments in your journey to collect your thoughts and be honest with yourself. If you are not experiencing success in your practice of magic, evaluate your methods and find the root cause of the problem. Once you eliminate the true root cause of the problem, the problem will occur less frequently or not at all. Approach magic with a “steady and sure” methodology and you will begin to experience more successes than failures.

Until next time,

I ask this question every year. Will this be the year?

Life is short, time is an enemy and happiness is fleeting. There is one thing you can do in your pursuit of happiness…………be truthful with yourself.

Satanism: An Interview with Aleister Nacht

Note: Satanic Magus Aleister Nacht was interviewed by Domina Richter on Friday December 21, 2018, (Winter Solstice) and asked about his coven, public persona, and the future of Satanism. This is the first interview Nacht has granted in two years.

Q: You released a video of yourself this week on YouTube. So why did you choose to “go public” in this video?

A: I have been very conservative about sharing my personal life with the public although I could not always keep my life out of the public media. I suppose everyone likes to have a mental image of the person that has written a book, blog posts, etc. I felt the time was right to provide a visual medium for my readers. The only thing that should be out front is my Satanic message and if I can accomplish that by adding an image to my persona, then I have accomplished what I set out to do. I am still protecting my anonymity, as you can plainly see in the video, but there has to be a hint of mystery. The public has not seen me in all these years so I don’t believe it is important (to them) to see my face.

Aleister Nacht

Q: Do you plan to reveal your face in the future?

A: I think it goes back to the first question. I am a very private person and I enjoy anonymity. I do not seek public recognition and quite honestly being famous is not something I am interested in. I very much enjoy blending into the population. I may feel differently in the future but for now, that is how I feel.

Q: So, can we expect more videos in the future because of this new persona?

A: Yes. Absolutely. I have wanted to be able to meet the reader halfway with an idea and sometimes communicating in the written word is very limiting. It is almost two-dimensional when we live in a three-dimensional world. Being able to at least articulate thoughts in front of a camera will be easier and I believe ultimately, more effective than just writing a blog post. However, I will still write a blog because that is the source of material for the videos.

Q: So you feel that writing will still be predominately your medium, correct?

A: Yes. Blogging is what brought my writing to the forefront and it will continue to be the driving force in delivery of my Satanic messages. In my opinion, it is the direct link for communicating with the public.

Q: Are you working on a new book?

A: Yes. I am currently working on one which will be released in March or April of next year (2019). Unfortunately, I do not have a release date from the publisher but I believe it will be around that time.

Q: What is the new book about?

A: Well, at this point I would rather not say because several things are still in the works, such as the title of the book. All I can say is it will not be Sanctum of Shadows, Volume IV. In keeping with a “new beginning”, I am moving away from the series. I may write more Sanctum volumes in the future but for now, I am leaving it behind.

Q: While your last book Sanctum of Shadows Volume III: Spiritus Occultus sold well, it was not well received in the reviews. Why do you think that happened?

A: I believe people expect a certain form of writing from a particular writer. The third volume was really an exploration that ultimately would teach a person how to formulate ideas in such a way that it would open a dialogue between the communicator and the receiver. I know it sounds strange however in many cases people have ideas and philosophies that are very difficult to communicate in public settings because of prejudice and other things. Volume III was really a way to formulate their ideas, communicate those ideas, and be able to defend their ideas to the point of argument. Quite honestly, I thought this would be a good way to explain that process. I think it may have been too technical for many readers. One review, and I’m paraphrasing, “Collection of rambling words in the form of a short story, nothing to further Satanic knowledge so avoid it” or something like that. Ouch! Not every book is going to be well received by the public and that book is a perfect example. 

Q: With the recent loss of a Magnum Opus coven member, are you now looking for a new member?

A: Actually, we have someone who will be initiated into our group. She has been waiting a long time to come into our Tampa Bay coven. We have several affiliated groups around Florida however Tampa is the core Magnum Opus group. We really have a great amount of interest when it comes to filling one of these positions. We have 13 members in each of our coven groups. Our new member comes to us from our affiliated group in Destin, Florida. She will come into the core group in Tampa and the Destin coven will back-fill her spot.

Q: Do you ever accept new coven members “off the street”, so to speak?

A: Not in the Tampa Bay group. New members join an affiliated coven at another location. It does not happen very often, but it does happen. Overall, Magnum Opus membership is very stable with little change except for deaths, relocations, etc. When someone is accepted and joins, they are usually very settled and established which contributes to membership stability.

Q: So how does a Satanic coven recruit new members?

A: In the case of Magnum Opus, it is a methodical administrative process. First, we do not solicit by “asking” someone to join. A candidate must ask to join the coven, which usually happens well in advance of being considered. This implies a prerequisite relationship with one (or more) existing coven members. It goes without saying we do not tell everyone we meet “Hi, I am a Devil Worshipper….” so these personal relationships evolve over time. When a coven needs to replace a member, it is communicated to all groups. Coven members can put a name forward for consideration and the particular coven begins collecting the information needed to make a determination. Ultimately, the members of the respective coven choose the new member who is best suited for their group.

Q: Do the groups ever get together and perform rituals?

A: Absolutely. The Grand Climax is a series of Satanic rituals performed during a week in July when all groups participate at one location. It is a great opportunity to catch-up with those you have not seen in a while. We have at least one ritual outdoors on a small secluded island that one of our members owns. We kayak everything we need for the night; hibachi, coolers, food, beverages, ritual implements, a couple of tents, and sleeping bags. I guess you could call it “Satanic Camping”! A lot of fun.

Q: I was really delighted that you granted this interview. You have not done that in the last few years. Why is that?

A: There are certain interviewers who look for some type of “scandal or dirt” during an interview because that’s what sells. Honestly, it is very tiring to censor myself in real-time and for that reason, I simply walked away from interviews. I will see how things go in the future.

Q: You are on social media but you do not “spam” the public. Is that deliberate?

A: Yes. If people sign-up for my mailing list, that means they want communication. I really do not care where a person is eating dinner or what they are eating. I do not believe most people are interested in where I am, where I am going, or what I am doing every second of the day. I may be mistaken however that’s the way I feel. Social media is a wonderful platform for communication but there should be boundaries. There are people who tweet, check-in, etc. with nothing important to say. “So what; you are eating pancakes at IHOP?” To me, it is not “breaking news” that someone is going to the grocery store. I really don’t care.

Q: What do you think about the popularity of Satanism today?

A: I think Atheistic Satanism is enjoying media attention, good or bad, and I really like the role in activism they are currently playing. I am a Theistic Satanist so our beliefs are different but I recognize their social contributions. The issue of “equal rights under the law” has been brought to the forefront of public awareness which has been sorely needed by all occult practitioners. I am really happy to see it happening today.

Q: Do you feel that Satanism is “in good hands” in the coming decades?

A: I do. Like many of my colleagues in the Occult, I am getting older and while I love being a quasi-ambassador of Satanism, in the next few years I hope to see the younger practitioners step up and fill the position. I am encouraged by members of my Dark Arts Forum who are smart, driven to do the work, remain open-minded, and broaden their perspectives. It is very time-consuming and detracts from personal life so a person must be passionate about the message or he / she will quickly move on to something else.

Q: Before we end the interview, do you have any special messages for your readers?

A: Always dig deeper into the subject matter and make time to learn and truly understand Satanism and Satanic Magic. It is a long but very rewarding journey for those who are dedicated to perfection. Satanic blessings to all my readers and thank you for allowing me to write about my favorite subject, Satanism. Hail Satan!

A New Beginning

Lucifer and Life

Et tu, Moriuntur?

Death is always with us. Everyday we see death and the remnants in its wake. We mourn those we have known and even feel compassion for the families of those we did not. It is a fact of life which we will face alone sometime in the future. Our coven lost a member last week; a very close friend, brother, and Satanic Spirit. We will miss him tremendously as we of the twelve left behind grieve our loss; turn the page and continue to write the script of our lives – minus One…..Brother Ron. End of story, right? As Ron would have said; “Bullsh*t”!!!!!

If you are of the LaVeyan Satanism belief (or lack thereof), that is precisely the answer – the only answer, there can be. After all, there is no Satan, demons, etc. so how can there be an afterlife? For atheists, belief in the afterlife is as “believable” as Santa Clause……or Satan for that matter. When death finally arrives, the atheist believes……..nothing. Flesh and bone fall down and rot…..The End. For the true Satanist and Devil Worshipper, nothing could be further from the truth.hell

Energy is the force of all life. Creating energy, transferring energy, depleting energy, and replenishing energy are the cornerstones of magic…..ALL magic. When the physical body ceases to be ‘powered’ by the life-force, it is vacated; the energy exits but the energy does not cease to exist. As practitioners of magic, dealing with energy on a daily basis, we know energy does not (can not) evaporate. Energy does not disappear. Energy finds a path allowing it to travel from here to there; from past to future; from high-to-low; and from positive to negative. This simply means it is mobile and totally free to be influenced by like-charges, different charges, and / or the fluidity of electrical currents or resistance and capacity. The overall amount of energy passing through the body begins to vacate during and after death however, that energy does not vanish just as the air remains electrically (magnetically) charged after a lightning strike from a thunderstorm.

Here’s an idea; let’s run energy through some magnets and see what it does to the human body. If you have had an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) that is exactly what happened to you. The interaction of the magnets and energy, along with pulsing radio waves allows scanning and imaging of the body. Obviously you can not see this happening without the right equipment. The same is true for magic and while some call magical manipulation archaic in operation, it is just as powerful as the MRI machine in reality. The application of the higher Satanic processes is about honing and focusing the energy from magical operations while applying energy to the specific channel (pathway) by the practitioner to facilitate the desired outcome (result).

As with most batteries, a drain of energy is needed to keep the capacity to hold a charge. In other words, leaving your iPhone, laptop, etc. plugged in and charging all the time will cause the battery to no longer hold a charge. This means when you unplug the device, the battery will go dead within a few minutes (or quicker)………..then it is time for a new battery. You could throw the device in the garbage but why? It just needs a new sustainable source of energy, right?

When the physical body energy is depleted, the residual energy travels through the dimensional veil and occupies another form. We can’t see this happening because we are limited in perception to three dimensions as humans. As magical practitioners, you may have experienced an interaction with an energy form you once called mother, father, friend, familiar, principal, etc. Who the energy once occupied in our spatial world is superfluous.satanic witch master-bating

One day, I will cease to be Aleister Nacht as a person however, I will always be the energy force of the past and the present. I will never see my Satanic Brother Ron again however, his energy exists just beyond the barrier in the universe I have never (nor will I ever) visit physically as a human being. I know the next time our coven calls upon those just beyond, we will all feel Ron; a very familiar source of Satanic energy.

Please Note: This blog post is dedicated to Ron because he has touched every one of my readers on this blog and of my books. The reason: Ron is the one who, many years ago, suggested I start this blog and write my first book, Magnum Opus – Secrets of the Inner Sanctum.

If you are reading this, Ron has touched your life.

Until Next Time,

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!
