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.

Q&A with Aleister Nacht – November 25th, 2012

Aleister Nacht's Satanic Coven - Magnum OpusSatanic Sunday

To everyone who attended the Q&A session tonight, a very heartfelt “Thank You”. It was a great experience and I enjoyed sharing as well as hearing your thoughts on the topics. Let’s do it again!!! If you missed this event, perhaps you can attend one in the future.

Questions and Answers

I have provided a list of the topics below so others will benefit. Enjoy!!

 

1. Do I have to sell my soul to Satan?

Answer: No, the idea of selling your soul is purely folklore. I suggest reading my blog post on that one. https://satanicmagic.wordpress.com/2012/08/27/the-power-of-evil-selling-your-soul-to-the-devil/

2. Do you think it is a good idea to be “out” as a Satanist?

Answer: I believe you must be honest with yourself but also smart about it. It would not benefit you to shout it from the rooftop and maybe lose your job or make enemies because of it. That is the very reason most Satanists are very reserved about their beliefs. Satanists represent all walks of professional life however, a “Devil worshipping Surgeon” may unnerve many people.

 
3. Do you like being a Satanist?

Answer:  I enjoy what I do and derive a great deal of satisfaction by helping others discover a world where neither guilt nor hypocrisy are used as tools to sell lies the others. Satanism is an open and HONEST path that leads each follower to their own version of satisfaction, self-fulfillment and happiness. I never experienced such peace and stability in my life and emotions while part of the Xian congregation. For me, being a Satanist makes sense to me and I could never go back.

 

4.  Do you provide guidance to those who ask?

Answer: Yes, I am happy to provide answers to questions and assist those searching for the truth. I ask for one thing before you ask a question; “Do your research and be ready to discuss the matter intelligently before you contact me”. The basic information about Satanism is readily available from many sources including my books.

 

5. My 11-year-old daughter is a Satanist without my help in any way, do you think it would be best to teach her Satanism at home? 

Answer: Yes, absolutely. You will be doing her a favor by supporting her and teaching the right way instead of the lies or misconceptions of others.

6. Ever tried Necronomicon rituals?

Answer: Yes and they are very, very powerful. Preparation is most important because when the ritual begins, it is “Game On”!!

 

7. The Satanic Mass by Anton LaVey is awesome! Would you ever record your own Mass, something as powerful & compelling? 

Answer: I would love to record a ritual and have tried however, it looses something when recorded. I’ll leave An ton’s version for the generations to come. I would like to hold a virtual ritual and even took a poll to see if there was an interest. https://satanicmagic.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/poll-results-would-you-attend-a-virtual-satanic-ritual/

"The Satanic Mass" by Anton LaVey

8. Do I have to join a coven to be a Satanist?

Answer: No, you are not required to join any association unless you feel compelled to do so.

9. I am afraid to talk to my husband about Satanism. If you were in my situation, what would you do?

Answer: You must be honest with yourself. Living life in fear of what someone thinks about your most precious beliefs is HELL. Open a dialogue with him and if he loves you, he will listen.

10. I had sex with a Demon and it made me really tired the next day, why did that happen and how can I prevent the tiredness in the future?

Answer: Sexual encounters with a succubus or incubus is very demanding. Some people laugh at these words however, they are real and using energy in that realm is very tiring indeed. Meditation before the event will help build stamina over time.

11. I have heard some ( a few ) Satanists say that using magick is not important in Satanism. I digress… I personally think it is a vital part to this path as a Theistic/traditional Satanist. What are your thoughts, Aleister Nacht?

Answer: I believe magick is one of the most important things to Satanists. It is what bonds the person with Satan and the energy that is important for all of us. Yes, I agree with you.

Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan

12. How long have you been a Satanist?

Answer: Over 25 years.

13. Do you sacrifice animals?

Answer: No, I do not torture, kill or drink the blood of any animals.

14. What kind of Satanism do you practice?

Answer: I must say I am closest to Theistic Satanism than any other form however, I do not claim to be a Theistic Satanist. I acknowledge Satan and Demons are real and our lives as followers are measured according to the service we provide to the Master of the World. Every follower has to decide what is right for them.

 

15. What do you think of the AL JILWAH?

Answer: I find it to be a very good literary work however, I question the authenticity and motivation behind it. I read many different books on a stratus of topics. I have a top 5 for anyone interested. https://satanicmagic.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/top-5-must-read-books/

 

16. What are your favorite grimoires?

Answer: I do not have a favorite.

17. Do you know any coven in the NYC area?

Answer: No however, there are a few listed on Meet Up website which is a good way to explore. Always meet in a public place!!

18. Would you ever perform sorcery for clients?

Answer: It depends upon who and what the objective was. I would consider it.

19. Have just been reading your book Book of Satanic Ritual. You mentioned you can use either silver or gold candlestick on your altar. As far as I have read, seen etc it seems that only silver should be used and never gold as gold is associated with xtian/Christian beliefs.

Answer: The idea that gold is of xtian association is a very common misnomer. I recommend you use whatever you desire. Satanism does not require dogma nor does it dictate compliance to anyone’s ideology except that of our Master Satan.

Book of Satanic Ritual by Aleister Nacht

20. Can one be a theistic Satanist and an atheist at the same time without contradiction?

Answer: Well, I have written several blog posts on this subject. I believe in Satan and Demons therefore, I am not an atheist. There are atheists who call themselves Satanists however, I do not get the connection. Try this: https://satanicmagic.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/satanism-without-satan/

 

21. What happened with Facebook? Do they object to the content of our discussion?

Answer: No, I sent out notices about tonight’s Q&A and someone reported me as a “Spammer”. I cannot comment or like any posts. Some of the other “Satanists Groups” like to use antics like that to take a shot at someone………

22. Which is the most powerful ritual satanic or magic spell for bringing back a lost love, for example?

Answer: I have two that I wrote some years ago that have served me well. The best are the ones written by the magician because they possess the passion, energy, emotion and personal connection to the receiver.

23. In rituals what are good things to offer to Satan and Demons?

Answer: Sincerity is the most important. You must make sure everyone in the group has their focus and is not playing around. If someone is in it for a game, they need to be promptly ejected from the coven until they “get it together”.

24. How developed is your third eye?

Answer: Mine is not as tuned as other people I know. Each person has a gift and for some, it is the Third Eye.

25. Are you working on another book?

Answer: Yes I am. It will be released early next year. It will be interactive, created for the iPad and Mini, and sold exclusively through iTunes.

Top 10 Satanic Magic Blog Posts by Aleister Nacht

“There are lazy minds as well as lazy bodies.” Benjamin Franklin

This week I answered the same question three times in a row. I know that some people tend to be a little “lazy” when it comes to researching a topic however, there are over 175 pages of Satanic information explaining our coven’s theology and descriptive details of rituals we perform. I have decided to include a few links in the post that will assist the searcher with locating answers to their questions. I have also included a few sentences as an overview of the content.

Satanism

1) Most Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about Satanism Part 1

Question #4: Do you provide guidance to those who ask?

Answer #4: Yes, I am happy to provide answers to questions and assist those searching for the truth. I ask for one thing before you ask a question; “Do your research and be ready to discuss the matter intelligently before you contact me”. The basic information about Satanism is readily available from many sources including my books. I do not have the time to explain “Satanism” to someone who is either too lazy to research or too cheap to buy a book. Satan helps those who are willing to invest in their knowledge and spiritual growth. I will not write a 5 page email explaining Satanism. My books provide those answers and much more.

2) Most Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about Satanism Part 2

I would like to use this blog post to answer a few frequently asked questions as in Most Frequently Asked Questions – Most Frequently Given Answers Part 1, posed by guests who have visited AleisterNacht.com and emailed me seeking answers.

3) Satanism for “Those Seeking Truth”

I am amazed and flabbergasted at times with the childishness of so-called adults. Our society is so perverted while in the darkened rooms however, these same hypocrites balk at the sight of a nipple in public. These Neanderthals shy away from the very breast that gives nourishment and life-sustaining comfort translated from a mother to a child. Absolute idiotic behavior.
Those “closet philanderer” are the same ones who engage in prostitution and deviant behaviors when they finally give into their  natural desires. Why does society act this way?

4) Top 5 “Must Read” Books – In My Opinion

I enjoy reading books from many other occult authors and I believe it is healthy for a person to consider other alternatives, interpretations and ideas. This is the only way to grow and evolve into who (and what) you want to be.

5) Satanic Ritual Sacrifice

The  calling of the blessed guest from Hell should always be the first order of business when conducting a working. You need to establish the connection early so you can communicate your will and desires to your “guests”. As the energy is heightened, the being will connect with you and the ritual performed. When the events unfold, some new practitioners will become frightened; it is natural, after all what they are witnessing for the first time is in direct conflict with their physical world. Even the new initiates who are excited about experiencing these manifestations will be taken aback when the event actually takes place. No amount of mental preparation will be adequate.Church Mass

6) The Spiritual Schism

The spirit world is vast and incomprehensible to the human mind. Try to imagine time ceasing to exist; an infinite space that no matte how long you travel, you will never reach the end. Without boundaries, without form and without philosophy or reason; this is the spirit world. If you meditate and truly use this valuable tool to expand your mind and experiences, you probably know and can identify with what I am writing at this very moment. For you have probably cast your eyes into that endless chasm of which there is no destination or measure. Meditation opens your sub-conscience and allows you to increase the one thing that exists in the spirit world; energy.

7) Satanic Meditation and Magic

Meditation has been around a long time and is practiced by many different religious and spiritual groups across all demographic boundaries.  Those who dedicate proper time and preparation can reap countless blessings for the soul, body and mind. Besides the rejuvenating power of meditation, it can also recharge your spiritual battery and allow introspection and retrospection for the Satanist. While the physical person is refreshed, the psychic and cognitive attributes are restored, repaired and healed.

8) How to Start Your Satanic Coven

Have you found the benefits of Satanism and Satanic Magic? If so, you are probably progressing in your new-found art almost daily and Satan is greatly blessing you for your time, diligence and tenacity. You are probably performing rituals and magical workings in the privacy of your newly formed ritual sanctum, whether large and well furnished or small, intimate and humble. At a certain point in your pursuit of all things evil, you will probably ask yourself “How can I find like-minded individuals to share my Satanic experience?” Perhaps the thought of forming a Satanic coven crosses your mind. Well, for many, this is only a fleeting thought that is never seriously entertained however, some determined, strong-minded individuals do more than just think about it; they actually do it!

9) Necromancy

Necromancy is one of the most misunderstood of all magical operations. Some believe it involves speaking to the dead; some say it involves having sexual intercourse with the deceased while others compare it to the Shinto religion or Native American “Sky-walking”. 
From the Satanic point of view, Necromancy is linked to the past and to the future.  Those who understand the practice can easily grasp the analogy of “forward / backward” dimensional resolution as far removed as xenophobia.

10) Satanic Top 10 List: How to Improve Your Satanic Magic Rituals

People are fascinated with Top 10 lists so I thought I would offer a Satanic Top 10 List: How to Improve Your Satanic Magic Rituals. Since I often answer questions concerning this matter, let’s get started.

Most Frequently Asked Questions – Most Frequently Given Answers Part 2

Before I begin to pontificate wildly, I invite you to read the Satanic Devotional Prayer post. It has connected with over 70 individuals who have emailed. The author requested to remain anonymous and I will respect that wish. I will say “thank you for allowing me to share it with the world!”Satanic Coven

I would like to use this blog post to answer a few frequently asked questions as in Most Frequently Asked Questions – Most Frequently Given Answers Part 1, posed by guests who have visited AleisterNacht.com and emailed me seeking answers. As I have stated many times before, I am happy to respond to questions to assist someone with their research. I do not claim to have all of the answers however, after 25+ years as a practicing Satanist there are very few things that surprise me anymore.

Question #1: “I have recently read your Book of Satanic Magic and want to experience more in Satanism. My husband is not open-minded and I am afraid to talk to him about this. If you were in my situation Magus Nacht, what would you do?”

Book of Satanic MagicAnswer #1: In my opinion, people change and evolution is very healthy for a high quality of life. I understand your apprehension however, you must be honest with yourself. On one hand, if you tell him your desires and he truly loves you, I believe he will respect your wish and support you in your journey. Conversely, if he does not love you enough to support your decision he will probably try to “control” you; at first with dialogue and later with more aggressive methods. Either way, I recommend being honest with yourself and exploring Satanism.

Question #2: “Have just been reading your book Book of Satanic Ritual which had arrived a week ago. Have ordered your other two books but still in the post. You mentioned you can use either silver or gold candlestick on your altar. As far as I have read, seen etc it seems that only silver should be used and never gold as gold is associated with xtian/Christian beliefs.”

Answer #2: The idea that gold is of xtian association is a very common misnomer. I seriously believe it is because of the abundance of gold used in cathedrals, churches, etc. The implements of xtian ceremonies seem to always be gold or gold imitation however, there is neither a requirement nor a prohibition against the use of gold for Satanic purposes. I am personally quite fond of gold although, the extreme price of gold almost makes its acquisition as a ritual implement impossible. I recommend you use whatever you desire. Satanism does not require dogma nor does it dictate compliance to anyone’s ideology except that of our Master Satan.

Question #3: “You mention crystals can be used on altars. What’s the significance of using them?”

Answer #3: Crystals are a wonderful addition to your altar since they tend to be not only pleasing on the eyes, but crystals can be helpful during energy rituals. Crystals can actually store small amounts of energy and some followers of Satanism and Witchcraft will carry a small crystal with them every day. Crystals are also used during healing rituals.

Question #4: “I have read differing opinions of the demon Belial concerning motives, powers and abilities. What is your belief of Belial?”

Answer #4: Belial is one of the Four Crown Princes of Hell, representing the North and the Earth Element; most people agree with that statement however, the beliefs diverge exponentially from that point onward. He is a very, very skillful demon who leverages the primal desires of humans and encourages the liberation of Satanists from any self-imposed guilt or conscience. He is one of the original group who assisted our Master Satan in establishing the truth of the world. He should not be provoked to anger as he will destroy as he pleases. “Belial, bless our ritual from the dark earth. Unleash your wrath upon those who would desire to bind us.” 

Question #5: “Are there meditations one uses that are specific to Satanism?”

Answer #5: Meditation is very beneficial for Satanists. Whether preparing for an upcoming ritual such as the Grand Climax (next week!!) or simply rejuvenating the mind and spirit, Satanic Meditation allows the practitioner to exercise the cognitive magical abilities. Magic (especially ritual magic) requires sustained focus that Satanists must  practice and build up to in order to perform successful operations. Meditation allows the practitioner to exercise the mental faculties in order to achieve and maintain high levels of energy. I meditate in bed, getting comfortable and allowing my mind to “drift in a controlled manner” until reaching a state of feeling separated from my physical location. Read More Here

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

Aleister Nacht: “Vengeance Is Always Mine”

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

Most Frequently Asked Questions – Most Frequently Given Answers Part 1

Over the course of a week, I find that I have answered some of the same questions (worded differently) a few times. I seriously considered creating a FAQs page on my website however, I think that some of the answers need to be expounded upon and there is no simple way to package them into a nice, neat and tidy webpage that would not look like an encyclopedia page. Love Me TenderIn the interest of keeping my website “user-friendly” and providing useful information without going into long-winded dissertations, I will simply archive questions I receive and the answer I supply. Then, from time to time, I will post them for my readers.

This will be my first installment so “Here we go…..!”

Satanist and Satan

Question #1: What type of Satanism do you practice?

Answer #1: At the risk of painting myself into a corner, I must say I am closest to Theistic Satanism than any other form however, I do not claim to be a Theistic Satanist. I acknowledge Satan and Demons are real and our lives as followers are measured according to the service we provide to the Master of the World. Every follower has to decide what is right for them.

Question #2: How long have you studied Satanism?

Answer #2: I have followed the Left Hand Path for over 25 years and I am happy with my progression as a Magus and Spiritual Teacher. I enjoy what I do and derive a great deal of satisfaction by helping others discover a world where neither guilt nor hypocrisy are used as tools to sell lies the others. Satanism is an open and HONEST path that leads each follower to their own version of satisfaction, self-fulfillment and happiness. I never experienced such peace and stability in my life and emotions while part of the Xian congregation.

Question #3: Do you sacrifice animals and drink their blood?

Answer #3: I suppose this question will always be asked since the Xian church would have everyone believe it to recruit them into their congregation. No, we do not torture, kill or drink the blood of any animals. We do practice sacrifice rituals but they are performed by “proxy“…..we use an inanimate object as the focus of the ritual so only the person intended will be harmed (who should be harmed). This is a basic magical operation.

Question #4: Do you provide guidance to those who ask?

Answer #4: Yes, I am happy to provide answers to questions and assist those searching for the truth. I ask for one thing before you ask a question; “Do your research and be ready to discuss the matter intelligently before you contact me”. The basic information about Satanism is readily available from many sources including my books. I do not have the time to explain “Satanism” to someone who is either too lazy to research or too cheap to buy a book. Satan helps those who are willing to invest in their knowledge and spiritual growth. I will not write a 5 page email explaining Satanism. My books provide those answers and much more.

Tarot CardsQuestion #5: Do I have to join a coven to practice Satanism?

Answer #5: No, there is no requirement to attend any type of meeting or ritual to practice Satanism. Some followers have never been in a coven nor performed rituals with anyone else. Some people prefer the seclusion of being totally alone during magical workings. Satanism is individual and it is up to the person to decide what is right for them. Many followers have their sanctum or altars in their homes and never join a group.

I hope these answers help those who are considering Satanism. Feel free to contact me with any questions (after you have done your research) and I will provide as much direction as possible.

Until next time,
