Otiosum, Piger Hominem

For the Satanist (Devil Worshiper), there is always a longing to seek out that familiar Satanic space called the Sanctum. It is the place where the mind and body are cleansed and rejuvenated, order is created from chaos, and Satanic energy is released onto the astral plane. It is the center of all things “Satanic”; bringing healing and curses inline with each other as total polar opposites in time-honored tradition. Each entry opens the mind to knowledge which can only be learned through experience and practical application of the higher Satanic processes. Each working transcends our physical and dimensional boundaries, facilitating impossibility to become our manifested desired reality.

Each practitioner approaches the practice of Satanic Magic from different pathways however, all practitioners enter the gate for the same quintessential reason: The love of the craft! This is a difficult concept for those wishing to dabble in Satanism; neophytes perhaps wanting to say a few words, wave an athame, and suddenly become a wealthy and talented “Übermensch” able to take the fabled magical shortcut to personal bliss. This is an insult to Satan, Satanism, and all practitioners world-wide who diligently practice the Black Arts. Needless to say, the neophyte brings ruin upon herself / himself. Otiosum Piger Hominem

The lack of ritualistic work ethic is an ongoing issue in the contemporary world. This self-aggrandizing laziness combined with the expectation that all desires should be instantly fulfilled is the product of ignorance, apathy, and desensitization of a culture having a limited attention span and even more limited motivation. The “Dumbing-Down” of everything from music to science is a sobering reminder that the members of society only exist to serve the politicians and the corporate masters. Everything can supposedly be accomplished by anyone who is entitled to “respect” by simply being born and achievements are expected without investment, work, dedication, accountability, or any other resemblance of commitment. It is an insult to those of us who have dedicated our lives to our craft. I have no respect for these misguided fools who believe google is the symbolic “key to the universe”.

The superciliousness of such individuals is disheartening when I receive yet another email wanting to sell their soul in exchange for their desires or they want to become a Magus with my blessing, having no idea of the responsibilities or huge investment of time, money, and energy required. It is the recognition they seek, not the work which is required. It is the title they want and in our drive-through society, they feel entitled to have it along with the recognition………..just not the work. Their justification is very simple: “It is my right to have everything I desire!”

“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.” Tips for Satanic Rituals

The takeaway from this blog post : Respect is earned, accomplishment is earned, title is earned, recognition is earned, and the fruition of desires……EARNED. This principle has never, and will never change just because there is an app for everything else. The entire Satanic community (myself included) is insulted by the very existence of such human cattle who make their stupidity blatantly obvious through their actions.

For those individuals: “Come and feed at the trough while the abattoir is prepared for your arrival. Guten Appetit!”

Respect and Satanic Meditation Revisited

A Lesson in Respect

There are a lot of people who make mention of “respect” and there are people in our world who deserve a certain level of respect. Let’s look at it from a Satanic point of view. There is common respect, respect that goes hand-in-hand with common courtesy. You do not need to know anything about the person to give common respect; it is the respect you would give any stranger of which you owe no responsibility nor duty. This goes hand-in-hand with personal conduct. If you say “please” and “thank you”, you will be well received and respect is something that is sorely lacking in our society today.

Treating people with basic respect seems to be a lost art (along with clearly articulating ideas with complete sentences). When you first meet someone or perhaps someone holds a door open for you as you are entering a building, it is accepted and expected for you to say “thank you”. If someone does something for you, it is also expected to be met with a show of gratitude. These are also transferable skills within corporate culture and beyond. Knowing what is acceptable and what is not acceptable is very important, especially when trying to convince someone to do business with you.

Kindness also goes hand-in-hand with respect. Since I am a Satanist, you may think I am lacking when it comes to manners and social norms but this is a Satanic principle. If you meet someone with kindness and you address them with kindness, they will reciprocate. If you choose words that are threatening, you will meet with some manner of difficulty in presenting any further ideas or information. People are amazed when I correspond with them because they view me as a Satanist; as being someone who has no respect or is barely able to form a complete sentence or articulate an idea however, once they converse with me, they find that is not the case. They are almost surprised to find this revelation however, it is nothing more than common courtesy. If you treat someone with common courtesy, they will usually treat you with common courtesy. Those who verbally attack me or begin a conversation with disrespect, soon find although I may be nice, I am not and will not be their victim. For people to have a fair and value-added exchange of information, respect must be there.

Next, there is professional respect for achievement of great accomplishments. These individuals deserve respect in their chosen field because they have either 1) gone above and beyond the norm or 2) because they have attributed something fantastic to their chosen professional field or area of practice. These people may be respected in forums such as the Nobel Peace Prize or a writer award; perhaps recognized by their peers in some other form of award or perhaps they are moved up the echelon into a higher place or class within their hierarchy. satanic demonRegardless of what mechanism is used, plain and simple these are the individuals who have worked hard for something and achieved it. These are not the individuals to engage in a word fight or other cognitive battle. If you choose to engage an individual in his or her chosen field, you should be prepared for what will come back your way! This type of respect will also be widely communicated throughout industry or the segregated subject area in which you chose to engage the person. Respect will serve you well!

Satanic Meditation

When working Satanic Magic spells, be sure to  clear your mind of everything except for the focus of the working. When you are having trouble concentrating, you should stop the ritual work and meditate for a few minutes or until you can control your thoughts. This is a very crucial part of magic overall but it especially applies to spells. The focus of your energy must be precise; it should be honed to a Laser point that you are always in control of and are continuously increasing the potency of the energy being generated. Anything less will fail to yield the desired outcome and will perhaps, harm you as a byproduct instead.

Many people overlook meditation in their daily lives and that is a real shame. There are so many benefits from frequent meditation and clearing of the mind, chakras and channels. Among the benefits is the repair of the brain through calming introspection and rumination. This maintenance and repair is needed to ensure the magic and spirit remain firmly connected; for without one, there can not exist the other.satanic altar

Before your next magical working, invite those with you to meditate with you. Formulate the way you (as a group or alone) visualize the outcome of the magical working that will soon follow. When the group agrees upon one unanimous image in the mind’s eye, begin the meditation process. This may seem a waste of time for those new to magic so your group must be willing to explain and teach the benefits of such an investment of time. I am confident your workings will yield much greater, successful outcomes. Stress the importance of such an endeavor and make it part of future practices.

 

Until next time, Satanic Blessings!!

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,

A~N

Happy New Year……..Happy New Life!

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.

All religions will set boundaries and limitations for you but for the Satanist, we do not “limit” nor do we judge.

If you are seeking happiness, begin this new year with truthfulness, explore the spiritual world around you, and stop carrying guilt, shame and pain.

TRUTH………give it a try.

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!
