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.

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!

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.

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

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

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

Sathanas ad Abundantiam

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the name of Satan, ruler of Earth, the King of the world, I command the forces of darkness to bestow their infernal power upon us and open wide the gates of Hell, And come forth from the abyss to bless this unholy treatise!

It has been my desire in this blog about Satanism to transmit knowledge that will afford followers of the LHP the opportunity to deepen their magical skills and understanding. I have described the result of the invocation but in this part, I wish to discuss the actual process of conjuration and the subtle, yet inestimable, concepts of Satanic Magic.

Satanic Orgasm

I have touched upon some of the mechanics of demonic ritual in previous posts. The actual implements, approbation, tools, techniques, etc. are  outlined in the Book of Satanic Magic so I will not cover them in this blog.

Book of Satanic Magic

I will however open the reader to the acceptance and responsiveness of demonic powers that culminate into an incontrovertible corollary for the practitioner.

First, let me point out that the ways of magic are not exclusive to the Magus; anyone with the proper training, tenacity, patience and determination can expect consummate results. As with anything, the reward is equally proportionate to the investment made by the practitioner. The mind and body must be attuned to the slightest dimensional harmonics to make compensatory redress and lessen the attenuate course of action.

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

Satanism and Nude SacrificeThe choice of demonic force desired is usually according to the ritual being conducted; In Rem:  Destruction ritual would necessitate a menacing and contentious being with the ability to do your evil dealing without any reservation whatsoever.

I prefer a demon such as Samael (Demon of Death) for this type of working. The match of tactic and tactician is very important. This is magic where real and tangible results are produced; magic is not a stratagem.

The Ritual of Baphomet can be used as an opening for the Ritual of Black Flame. Both rituals are precursors to a summons and both work well together. Advantageous transitions into the conjurations can be found by using these rituals. The right frame of mind is both necessary and conspicuous for the practitioner. One only has to experience the true working of the conjure to be forever transformed through a satanic metamorphosis; just as caterpillar to chrysalis (pupa) to the butterfly. All actions play out to the five senses and some are overwhelming. For example, when the being Azazel (that great shepherd and scapegoat) materializes, there is always a sound that reminds me of a goat bleating. As I mentioned in the earlier posts, each being is as individual as we humans.

The ringing of a bell nine (9) times (during ritual work) clears the air inside the Inner SanctumAnton Lavey described the Inner Sanctum as the “intellectual decompression chamber” in his book The Satanic Bible.

Clearing the air inside this “chamber” allows the resonant harmonics and low-frequency oscillation to manifest in useful satanic vibrations. His explanation is quite simple yet cognitively advanced.

“The formalized beginning and end of the ceremony acts as a dogmatic, anti‐intellectual device, the purpose of which is to disassociate the activities and frame of reference of the outside world from that of the ritual chamber, where the whole will must be employed. This facet of the ceremony is most important to the intellectual, as he especially requires the “decompression chamber” effect of the chants, bells, candles, and other trappings, before he can put his pure and willful desires to work for himself, in the projection and utilization of his imagery.”

The imagery conceived in the mind plays a part and as I have discussed before, imagining the outcome of a ritual (in this case the materialization of a demon) is very important. You (and the coven) must be prepared for the visualization of the demon and the group should discuss the imagery before entering the Inner Sanctum and opening the ritual. Without this all-important step, the members of the coven are each imagining a different outcome from the process than the other coven members; and thus confusion and a failed conjure. Speak with one voice and think as one mind within your coven and ensure everyone is mentally prepared.

Satanic TorturePurification of the body, just as the air, is very important as well. Bathing before rituals is not only a courtesy for your coven members (who may perform fellatio on you later) but is ultimately respectful to Satan and the demons you invite into your rituals. Respect is not only desired but it is required of the hellish hosts. Any less that absolute reverence, tribute and worship is unpardonable and should never be condoned or allowed to manifest within the working coven. Members should understand and comply with this simple precept.

“There is no difference between “White” and “Black” magic, except in the smug hypocrisy, guilt-ridden righteousness and self-deceit of the “White” magician himself. “
Anton Szandor Lavey

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

This energy is identical to that of a child who is looking forward to a special event (such as the arrival of Santa Claus) and the anticipation amplifies as time passes. The magic of the coven is no different from this crude analogy. By the time the practitioner finally enters the Inner Sanctum, he/she can hardly contain the climax. Thus, the unabated pure powerI also equate this feeling to being sexually stimulated but not to the point of orgasm. The result is the same.

Keeper of Satanic Darkness

As a Satanist, I am a messenger of unflinching truth for Satan; the great Dragon. From abstract to reality, evil courses through my imperfect veins. I offer praise to Him as illumination of my Left Hand Path is found in His presence. There are many people who claim to have knowledge of Satanic rituals, yet they glamorize the atheistic view of Satanism. It is a slap in the face to Satan and His Demons; from hall to Satanic Altar. Freedom is offered to those who wish to fulfill his / her desires and, as a byproduct, happiness through indulgence. Finding the Satanic “center” is paramount for the long and winding journey. Call forth those awaiting the summons. Hail the gothic, ancient Master and Keeper of the Gate. Collect the flesh for the flames.

 When searching for your belief in Satanism, you will try various approaches until you finally find what is right for you. I know; I have said this many, many times before however this topic always returns to the forefront of inquisitive emails I receive from readers. Some have read one paragraph from my blog and they are ready to ask a million questions. I try to answer their questions or at least send them a link to a blog post that will give them the information they seek. Hey, I’m a nice guy………..but more than that, I remember my past and how I endured some “know it all” belligerent pricks who loved to hear themselves talk much more than anyone was interested in hearing.
