Satan and Demon Existence

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”.

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.

Auspicium Melioris Aevi

Everyone is looking for answers to the riddle of life. Whether it is the meaning or the very essence of existence, we all seek solace in knowledge. I too searched for an absolute which was, at least for sometime, fleeting and elusive. One axiom was true in my case: “Stop looking and the answer will soon appear”.

Something simple and unassuming seeped into the very fabric of my existence long ago in New Orleans and the life-changing power opened a plethora of choices for my future. This was more than a mysterious encounter with a celestial form beyond human senses; it was the fulfillment of meaning with a sustained euphoria which has lasted for decades and continues to this very day. Did I see a ghost; have an out-of-body experience or was I taken by aliens? No, although those would certainly be worth experiencing.Satanism is Worshipping Satan

Opening the mind to possibilities is the most exciting part of living this fleshly existence. Knowing there are choices and the selection is not as limited as some would portray and the commonly accepted principles may, in fact, be flawed or intentional lies.

Youth is wasted in a mad race to “acquire” possessions; trinkets for show or social status. This energy expended into the atmosphere dissipates as quickly as the minutes, hours, days, months, and years invested in fruitless endeavors without satisfaction or fulfillment; no dividends from sad and misplaced usury. This is the ultimate faux pas and the cost is priceless youth, energy, enthusiasm, hope, and a flawed future as a byproduct.

There is a fit for everyone in this world but it is not without suffering. There is no preordained destiny for anyone and each person’s story is being written by an invisible implement of his or her device. There is no one to save you from yourself and do not expect a pact with Satan will ensure a life of luxury and / or privilege. These are lies for the misguided to consume while begging for more lies. Beggars are rarely choosers, especially when nothing of value is offered as consideration.

“Children of Death” are always pawns in a game where the stakes are extremely high and loss means everything. The promise of quick and complete satisfaction is only ensured in the fairy tales of a misplaced childhood. The remnants of broken dreams only add insult to injury when the future quickly fades into the past. Is it a lesser crime to steal a person’s physical property or (although intangible) his or her hope?Demonic and Satanic Sex

If one peers into the abyss, the darkness will certainly gaze back in an attempt to understand what is wanted, desired, or otherwise contemplated. Beneath the shallow epidermis of human emotion is a void that must be filled and this area is neither discerning nor reasoning; reason will cease to exist in the dark chasms of raw feeling. The question of “why” will never be raised when any justification is useless and individual desire is unquantified.

BTW, I visited Mad Hatters today. I recommend stopping in if you are in St. Pete.

I’m glad you are still here with me……

Satanic Blessings,

Satanism, Evolution and Little Red Riding Hood

Brothers and Sisters – Hail Satan!

It has been a while since I shared my thoughts and Satanic musings with the populous. It has been a challenging year with many twists and turns along the way. I needed to decompress and recenter my reality. Now that is behind me, I look forward to once again sharing my opinions with my readers.Satanic Speculum

I would like to post some interesting tidbits from around the world of Satanism, as the media’s impression of course. Satanists and Devil Worshipers are always “easy scapegoats” for deranged killers, self-centered egomaniacs and those suffering from mental illness. It is easier to assign blame to those on the fringes of society that to admit “anyone is capable of unspeakable deeds”. This is the same reason so many witches have died at the hands of the self-proclaimed “righteous”.

The reverse is also true. There are those who claim “the Devil made me do it” and the media will gladly corroborate because “Satan sells”. All stories need a nemesis; who better than the very one attempting to bring truth? Any lie containing elements of truth makes for a more believable lie; one the media gladly promulgates.

Satanic Evolution

No man’s a jester playing Shakespeare
Round your throne room floor,
While the juggler’s act is danced upon
The crown that you once wore.*

I had a very interesting conversation with a Brother Satanist who was recently initiated into our coven. As with most new initiates, he is like a sponge, absorbing every work and gesture of all things Satanic. I greatly enjoy discussing Satan and the beliefs of our groups. In our digital world, it is easy to forget we are social animals and as such, we reach out to those holders of knowledge in an effort to grasp information. He asked why I thought mainstream society has yet to embrace true Satanism and Demonolatry. As for my thoughts on the matter, I believe the Devil owns the future. Let me explain.

Satanic Black MassIn order for humans to evolve, two elements must be present: intelligence and receptivity. You can probably draw some parallels from both elements and may believe them synonymous however, they are far from (even vaguely) being interdependent.

As humans continue to devolve into a permanent stupor, the species moves further from knowledge into pure fatuousness. From the mind-numbing “reality” entertainment consumed in mass quantities to those who are so desperate to be accepted as a single-syllable ‘gangsta’, humans move further down the evolution scale. These are the suburban ‘kids’ who are pretending to be something they are not.

The brain is an organ that requires “use” in order to properly develop. Stimulation may be received from countless sources however, lack of stimulation and disuse quickly leads to lethargy. The message and underlying logic of information received begins to be too arduous to decipher. This process can certainly be reversed however it will require more effort exerted by the person. It is a slippery slope indeed.

In the extreme polar opposite, we find the Über Intelligent; the class above which are only the geniuses who, while applying the Explicit Formula for the Fibonacci Sequence in their head, struggle to grasp basic humanistic concepts. While these individuals have the capacity to understand unseen energy and power of the mind, they are not receptive to the premise. For them, a realm that defies mathematical or other scientific logic is absurd and abstractly implausible.Satanic Witches

Just like the “Satan” created by Milton, it is a complex subject that can’t be fully explained with only 1000 words. I’ll say those who are attentive will know when the next evolution begins………and ends.

Until next time,

Satanic Blessings

Fatal Satanic Mistakes

Hail Satan and Satanic Blessings to All!!

Our coven looks forward to the upcoming All Hallows Eve and Halloween rituals. These are very sacred holidays for Satanists and Satanic power stronger and more potent during holiday ritual workings. While harnessing that magical energy and directing it to achieve the desires of the coven is the main objective, it does require time, diligence, patience and tenacity.

I have concocted 12 fatal mistakes a Satanist can make however, due to the possibility that YOU (“Reader”) will grow bored after a few minutes and possibly surf away, I decided to trim the subject matter down to five (5). I felt this would give you quick, simple yet useful information. Demons

As always, you may disagree with my ideas which is perfectly Ok.

Fatal Mistake #5 – “Changing the Entire World”

When first exposed to genuine Satanic Ritual and Demonic Evocation, searchers will usually do one of two things; 1) Run like Hell or 2) Feel reborn and alive, perhaps for the first time in their entire life. The “dabblers” may not have imagined the indubitable world of Satanism and thus, may experience sensory overload or shock until the Fight or Flight response takes over with little or no input from the logic / rational part of their mind. For some who believe Satanism is dressing up like the Devil and performing lifeless, empty, dogma-riddled theatrical plays, reality can be too much to “wrap their mind around”. This usually results in “Running like Hell”.

The other side of the situation may be just as difficult to “normalize”………….a “Satan Freak”.

This person is so excited and ebullient, he / she changes everything about themselves, often undergoing a complete metamorphosis until they perceive repletion / satiety in their new Satanic utopia. They may adopt a new look (often gothic style) and may mutate to become that which ‘mainstream’ perceives as Satanic or even maniacal. Belligerent, antagonistic, rude and combative behavior is not necessarily attributes of a Satanist; an asshole perhaps, but assholes are not exclusive to Satanism.

This inordinate nadir usually leads to alienation because no one can endure contact with the person for more than a minute. These individuals are “antichrists without a cause” and they succeed in driving everyone crazy.

Fatal Mistake #4 – “Stupidity”
Turkey Blow Job

Not only is stupidity one of Anton LaVey’s Nine Satanic Sins, but stupidity can extirpate a Satanic coven.

Illustration: Think about how the world viewed the United States while “Bush Jr.” was President. While he was “groping” German Chancellor Angela Merkel, do you suppose the populace (apart from America) was thinking “This man is a genius. What intelligence and charisma ….. He must truly make Americans proud”?

Stupidity, even by association, can be detrimental to Satanists and a Satanic coven.

Fatal Mistake #3 – “Overinflated Ego”

While self-confidence is wonderful, the egomaniac is dancing on glass and that glass WILL, sooner or later, break. Very few things will grate upon people’s nerves as the “full of themselves” person. The time usually comes when a few Satanists with baseball bats invite the braggadocio to inexorable batting subjugation (figuratively speaking; of course).

Große Seelen dulden still”

baseball bats

Fatal Mistake #2 – “Exceeding Limitations”

As with any new endeavor, a person will become increasingly comfortable with the events over time. Just as learning to ride a motorcycle at 95 mph on a gravel road may end badly, learning and becoming proficient with Magic is challenging. While many books explain how to conjure a being, most do not tell you what to do (or undo) in order to terminate a visit “gone wrong”. Similar to a dog chasing a car, what will you do when an acrimonious demon appears? This can be very dangerous.

Fatal Mistake #1 – “Omitting Satan from Satanism”

Yes, I know there are those who call themselves “Satanists” who do not believe in Satan. That is precisely why their rituals and ceremonies are nothing more than meaningless buffoonery performed by dilettantes. The choice to believe in Satan is the individual’s; that belief is a very personal matter. I respect their choice however, Satanism without Satan is ludicrous………..in my opinion.

“Questioning everything is the essence of Satanism and it is this self-preserving reflex that protects the Satanist from becoming a victim. The rationality of “belief without substance”becomes absurd and unbelievable.” Aleister Nacht: “Vengeance Is Always Mine”

Vicarious Liability

Satan Means Different Things to Different People

Dedicated to Sarah……….

I always enjoy intelligent, thought-provoking conversation and I really love participating in such a conversation with people I admire. As a Magus, I hear an assortment of problems and pains from those seeking my advice. This really provides a unique perspective into the way people think and what they hold as valuable and important. Based upon my personal evaluation of the respondent, I often reserve the cold, hard truth until I can provide some foundation that will lessen the blow to their reality I will soon deliver.Satan and Witches Coven

Some people know the answers to their questions or the solution to their dilemma before consulting me but they simply need to hear it from someone else to affirm their hypothesis. Others seek an alternative to their solution and look to me for perhaps a fresh perspective that may lead to another idea affording them the opportunity to avoid (or at least) delay the inevitable. Then there are the desperate seekers who are  neither ready to hear or apply the solutions to their problems.

It is quite amazing that the role of Satanic Magus is so very similar to that of a Psychologist. Desperation will make a person do that which in a normal circumstance, they would never have done. The PhD asking my advice for saving his marriage would never dream of asking for a Satanist’s assistance in normal conditions. The City Council member asks how to reconnect with her daughter who has recently discovered drugs; the church deacon reaches out to me, a Satanist, to help make sense of his addiction to sex and pornography; the federal employee asks for my objective thoughts because his office is full of “hypocritical xtians”; a local politician asks for my support in his upcoming election. These are real examples of the broad spectrum of readers and believers I have come to know and who have come to know me.

I still have my fair share of crazies however, it has become much more common to have lucid and articulate correspondence rather than the “sell my soul” banter.

You Can Talk To Me

Many times, after a positive experience, I am rewarded with an instant feeling of satisfaction, as I believe the possibility that I have made a positive impression on the person and they will benefit from our correspondence. Time is precious to everyone and I am no different however, if the person is sincere and respectful in their approach, I try to make time in my schedule for them. I often ask for their support through a donation or the purchase of a book since I am trying to earn a living and make my way through this life.

I am going to share this with you…………I sincerely believe there is an undercurrent of acceptance and desire to believe in Satan and in Satanism. I began feeling this unrecognized movement about five years ago, right before going public at the urging of my beloved coven, Magnum Opus. I truly believe society is approaching a crossroad and while history has repeatedly adhered to the dogma of the past, I believe we will experience an awakening and acceptance of not only Satanism, but all Occult beliefs and studies. There are some obstacles that may hinder, or even prevent this from becoming a reality. Let me explain……….

The Enemy Within

Satanism and the Occult Arts have faced fierce resistance and persecution from established religions and I am sure this will continue into the future. It is not however, the attacks of established religion that will impede the advancement of Satanism in the future. The attacks will come from within and as with Caesar, Divide et Impera delivers the most detrimental of injuries. To limit the scope of this post, I will discuss Satanism as my focal point although many other occult theologies may in fact fit nicely within this analogy.

The problem is Satanism (as with most Occult Arts) is so fractured that it is almost impossible to get agreement on anything from one or more Satanic covens. Satanists of all geographical locations, cultures and theologies present a challenge for anyone trying to bridge the gap and close the differences in thought. When you add a heaping helping of the egotistical, things go from bad to worse.Satanic Ritual Graves

From uncalled-for verbal attacks to an unwillingness to even discuss basic Satanism belief, anyone opening their heart and devoting their time to a doomed initiative will certainly (and quickly) reach their point of “burnout” and tire of the metaphorical “cat herding” exercise. The pendulum again swings out of control and without purpose.

Theistic Fibrosis

The internal injuries Satanism has suffered at the hands of so-called Satanists has resulted in “scar tissue” and the damaged areas have incorrectly healed, placing more stress upon the Satanic Body as a whole. The results have left many layers of callused tissue, limiting mobility, increasing pain from the old fractures and a “remodeling” of the connective tissues and skeletal components. Does this sound confusing?

Let me simply say Satanism looks like an established, coordinated, healthy and powerful entity while at the core, it is anything but healthy. The future challenge for all Satanists will be in a correct prognosis, a valid and effective treatment plan and methodology to monitor and take corrective actions to meet the overall needs of Satanism as a whole.

Cooperation, understanding, resolve and a spirit of Kaizen; a spirit of continuous improvement benefitting the overall practice, study and philosophies of Satanism. This will be a huge undertaking and simply defining ideas of Satanic “membership” illustrates the magnitude and how vast individual elements within the initiative will not only be but will later become.

This initiative will be a huge level of effort and if planned and executed correctly, it could forever change the image and inner workings of Satanism for generations to come. This would certainly be recognized and remembered in history as a pivotal event that will perhaps usher in other positive changes to all Occult Arts. I alluded to the idea in Sanctum of Shadows Vol. I The Satanist. In fact, the series is my idea for maximizing the entire potential of Satanism.

witch on broom

Satanism may one day hold a coveted position of being a worldwide “Brainstorming Think-Tank“; having a capability to draw upon its vast and diversified membership resulting in solutions to complex global problems and challenges. Perhaps Satanism will become more than just a few angry, ego-driven individuals, blog sites and chatrooms. The real power of any organization is its ability to improve the quality of life for society.

As always, I am sharing my opinions so feel free to comment with your point of view.

Sell Your Soul To Satan

Amass Huge Wealth In Satan’s Service

I have written many posts about the “selling the soul” which many people believe will bring them wealth, fame and other desires they may have deep in their minds. I receive countless correspondences from those who want something from Satan and they offer the King of the World……………….their soul. These individuals (sometimes a group) feel they are entitled to wealth and riches although he / she has not invested effort, time, money, thought, self-development nor do they feel as if those investments are required.

Satanism and Satanic Ritual

Give Me “The Right Stuff” – Money

Totally absent are analytical thought, reason, deducible transitional logic, lucidness, rationale, sensibility,perspicuousness………………I believe you get the message. Replacing these desirable cognitive attributes are nitwittedness, obtuseness, stupefaction and puerility. Not surprisingly, most of these ‘big dreamers’ want to be ‘stars’; famous in the fields of music and acting. I also receive enticements such as photos of vaginas, breasts, asses and the occasional penis picture. The penis pics do nothing for me however, I do love the female body!

Satan Will Give Me Talent

The ‘Five Second Approach’ goes directly to the desires of the Requester:

“Aleister Nacht,

Tell me how to sell my soul to get _______________ (rich, famous, boyfriend, girlfriend, sex slave, guitar, ATV, sex, etc.) I want $1M USD unless I can get more!

Crampylady”

The ‘Ten Second Approach’ contains some fluff, chatter and pleasantries; suddenly it cuts directly to the plot:

“Dear Magus Aleister Nacht,

Hail Satan!! I am a big fan of your books and really love your Satanic Audio Blog. I am writing to ask for your help. I have worked very hard for many years to become a music star. Although I am only 20 years old, I feel I have grown beyond my age. Can you tell me how to sell my soul to Satan so I will become successful and make lots of money?

Your Biggest Fan,

Sin-day”Satan and Sex Slave

Finally, the Egomaniacs enable me to “get in on the action” by reaping a percentage of the gross sales price of the soul…………… 😉

“Aleister,

I want to sell my soul for fame and money. If you are willing to contact Satan and set up the deal, I am willing to give you 20% of all the money for the first five years. I am willing to then give you 10% of my earnings for the next five years. I promise to pay you this if you help me. I am also willing to sign a contract with you if that makes you more comfortable. I am waiting for your reply. Please do not wait too long because I have made this offer to other satanic priests on the internet. I will sign with the first response that meets my requirements.

AJ Evil”

Donate To Further Satan’s Reach

Over the years I have received almost every type of business proposal imaginable however, a couple stand out in my memory as being the “special” cases. For instance, one such Requestor had this very enticing offer to extend to me a couple of years ago: 🙂Bestselling author Aleister Nacht Releases new book, Sanctum of Shadows

“Mr. Nacht,

I love your writing and have read all of your books and blogs. I really want to become a great writer and ask for your help. I want you to write a short book with me about satan and magick. You can write the book as you like to ensure quality. I will then make my edits and add the things I feel are needed for the book to sell. We will split the money 50% / 50%. I am sure your publisher will be interested in developing a young writer in the future.

Demon Eyez”

Wanted: Slightly Used Soul $100,000 USD or Best Offer

Some of the letters I receive are almost too ‘crazy’ to believe. Some of the requests are so unrealistic that I often find myself chuckling out loud in hopes that the last line will read “April Fool” or “I had you going….”. Alas, the gravity of the situation rolls over me and I am brutally reminded that these letters are real and the authors of the letters are quite serious.Satan and Satanism
