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.

Until next time,

Crème de la crème – The Best of Satanic Magic 2013

2013 Satanic Reflection

I’m back in the cozy confines of my home overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. For those who noticed my extended absence from the virtual world, I have been in Louisiana assisting with our 6th coven to be added to Magnum Opus. While I love spreading Satanism and embracing new members (literally), I am very happy to be back home! As Ozzy said “No rest for the wicked”.

Anyone who follows my blog knows I am often sentimental on my personal retrospective self-reflection. I tend to pontificate for what seems an eternity and I certainly would do that today however, I am too fvckin’ tired. I want to momentarily glance back at the fleeting 2013 year and recognize some “happenings” as we all prepare to turn the page.woman at satanic altar

Entschuldigung……..Arbeit Macht Frei

1. In June, I released my 7th Satanic book entitled Sanctum of Shadows Vol. 1: The Satanist. I created the Sanctum of Shadows series to aid in the acclimation for new practitioners of Satanism / Devil Worship. The Satanist creates a firmly anchored foundation of “self” on which to build the processes of Higher Satanic Magic. The premise for my book is simple; I would love to have found a book 25+ years ago with this information!

2. Satanism with Aleister Nacht premiered on BlogTalkRadio September 8th. I have experimented with the format and I intend to do a few more shows before making the decision to continue or end the series. Let me know your thoughts and opinion……..To be or not to be? That is the question.

3. While in Germany last December, I created an online forum to share thoughts, ideas and opinions with the entire occult community. The Dark Arts Forum has since grown in numbers while maintaining “quality” membership. We are not the biggest but I do believe we are the best. My vision is simple; “Intelligent exchange of ideas in a respectful setting“. This is not the place for illiterate neanderthals or smart-ass Trolls……..they do not last very long! For those wishing to learn more about Satanism, Wicca and other occult arts while connecting with knowledgeable and approachable practitioners, this is the place for you! A special thank you to Cassie and Naci!!!!

4. For the past 79 weeks, my Book of Satanic Magic has remained in the Amazon Kindle Top 100 Bestselling Books (Satanism genre). While this is certainly a record achievement, it would not be possible without YOU, MY READERS!! I feel your love and approval every time I receive a sales report. I have the greatest Readers in the world; that is the fvcking truth. To show my appreciation to YOU, I have made my books available on Kindle Matchbook, which allows you to buy the new print edition of my book (or purchased in the past) and buy the Kindle edition for only $2.99 (Save 67%). Click here for my Amazon Author Page

5. I celebrated the second anniversary of Aleister Nacht’s Satanic Magic Blog with visitor number 200,000!! I sincerely hope my blog continues to inspire and educate those searching for truth.

Now, here are a few of my blog posts and videos that created a buzz or received the most email correspondence from Readers. They are in no particular order. Enjoy!

Recommended Blog Posts of 2013

1. Descent Into Madness (February)

“In the ’80s, drugs were recreational and only hardcore, drug starved fvckers were shooting Heroin. Looking back in retrospect, I am lucky to be alive and extremely lucky to have dodged the bullet of HIV, AIDS, TB, Hepatitis, blood poisoning, overdose, and the list goes on and on…..those are the medical threats. New Orleans, Lower 9th, shooting gallery, white boy with a pocket full of cash……….people have died for a lot less.”

2. Theistic Satanism (July)

“In our world today, it seems as if people need labels to clearly identify, categorize and segregate people and ideas. Without a label, every person must attempt to understand the particular person or topic; a label makes it so much easier for those who do not wish to invest time nor thought to form an opinion. After all, such analysis will only lead to …………..”a label”.”

3. Children Seek Satanism To Survive (August)

“As society fumbles through a plethora of teenagers’ challenges and problems, parents again revert to the copout of forcing illogical lies down the throats of their children. These Seekers do not cease to think, wonder or analyze received information; they begin to reach out to those who offer answers, sometimes painful and damaging yet nonetheless the truth; individuals like myself, who have been in their situations and lived the very life they now experience.”

4. Sell Your Soul To Satan (August)

“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.”

5. Fatal Satanic Mistakes (October)

“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.”

6. Wicca, Witchcraft and Satanism (October)

“Without Witches, Satanism would wither and die as a theology. The truth is, Witches keep the Satanic lifeblood flowing and that, keeps Satanism alive. As I have said before in earlier blog posts, most Satanists consider themselves “witches” and practitioners of magic first; then labeled “Satanists“. Even “A Satanic Coven of Witches” sounds better than “A Satanic Coven of Satanists“; am I right?”

7. Satanic Sole Practitioners (November)

“In my opinion, there are far more Satanists that practice their craft alone. They neither need nor want an affiliation with other Satanists; socially or otherwise, and I applaud them. As I have explained in the past, Satanism is something different to each individual. Even if a person is affiliated with a Satanic coven, he / she usually performs a few special workings solo; I do this also. There are times when I simply want solitude to communicate with Satan or others. I love my coven members but in some settings, I prefer to be alone……..which does not mean lonely.”

Recommended Videos of 2013

8. Are You Happy? (May)

“I ask the same question each year and while some people have entered the new world and found happiness, others have not. This year can change your life, break the chains of depression, despair and hopelessness.”

9. How to Improve Your Satanic Magic Rituals (April)

“Following these simple steps will help you achieve new heights in your Satanic Rituals, spells, hexes, etc.”

10. Satanism and Responsibility (April)

“Satanism means freedom however, the new Satanist must exercise self-control or the result will be self-destruction. We examine a few points to avoid this pitfall and succeed within the first five years of joining a Satanic Coven.”

Satanism, Witchcraft and Devil Worship in 2014

I am looking forward to 2014 with great anticipation. I know Satan will continue to strengthen Magnum Opus and promote truth for those Seekers. I will be there along the Left Hand Path to aid, encourage and counsel those who are sincerely dedicated to their personal journey.

You can help further Satanism

Readers always ask me how to experience change and make their desires come true; the answer is very simple. Satan wants firm commitment from His followers and that leads to knowledge, changed circumstances and fulfilled desires. You can help further Satanism in the virtual world. If you like the information on my written, audio or video blogs, take a moment to share it with your network; making the message available to others searching for truth. Through your actions, Satan will recognize and reward something as simple as reblogging my blog posts, retweeting information, sharing (Like, Comment, Tag, etc.) on Facebook timelines or a mention on other social media websites.

You can make a difference and you will benefit greatly from the energy expended. If you are serious about changing your life, contact me below.

Satanic Blessings to everyone!!

Adducible Disquietude – The Life of a Satanist

The Life of a Satanist

I thought I would share some profound (…….maybe not really profound but it sounds good) knowledge with Satanists of all ages. Satanism is more than just rituals, sex and magic; although there is plenty. I will attempt to share my thoughts and feelings on various “normal everyday subjects” in the next few posts.

Aleister Nacht Theistic Satanism

Old Satanist Disease

I am old; not prehistoric but certainly not young enough for my body to repeatedly forgive me for abusing it. For instance, I like a glass of wine (or two) in the evening as I watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico from my large windows. In my youth, I could drink all night, chase girls (all night) and shoot smack while maintaining a full class load; finishing my graduate classes summa cum laude. Now, if I have more than two glasses of wine, it feels like I was run down by a truck.

Age Is The Two Edged Sword

I was once involved with a 22-year-old young lady ten years ago. She was excited to be with me at first; perhaps a novelty. As time went by, our age difference began to become a chasm. She wanted to party every night and that was exciting to me at first; perhaps a novelty. 🙂 She would get drunk and crazy which was fun for the first 10 minutes or so but really began to be a rerun of a really bad movie. I ended the arrangement and she went back into the college “party scene”.

Our paths crossed 2 years later, we had dinner and ended up in my bed. She made a comment that was quite refreshing to hear. She said “Older men know how to really pleasure a woman. Younger guys think they do but they really don’t”.

Oh, Nice! 😉

NOTE: I must preface the remainder of this blog post by stating “These are not blanket assertions. I am providing my experience-based opinion and commentary on the subjects below.

Satanic Rituals and Holidays

Men Peak Sexually In Their Teenage Years………..Bullshit!

I know what the surveys and studies reveal about men and their sexual peak. That may be true for the majority however, at 46, I cannot get enough! I spend a lot of my leisure time with beautiful and intelligent women……..intelligent being the operative word. Intelligence has always attracted me to a woman much faster than silicone breast implants. As one of my dear friends says “You want to be able to have a woman on your arm at social events without people thinking ‘Where did he pick her up, on the corner?”

From a Satanic man’s point of view, there are some things that will crash a relationship (new or established) faster than you can say “blow job”. Here are a few………….in my humble opinion.

1. Possession is 9/10 of the Law – Just because a woman is great in bed and has charm does not mean I want to marry or have her “own me”. Some women view a wealthy older man as a “real catch”. Financial security and the things that decades of hard work bring will not be shared with a “gold-digger”. Most successful men at my age are not, and will never be, desperate for female accompaniment or sex. Those misguided ladies who decide to “move into” my life after a couple of enjoyable evenings are rudely awakened when I cease to call.

2. Cervix For Sale – After a pleasant rendezvous or two, a proposition to make the dream of fatherhood come true. As I have stated before, I want to be a father one day. I have reached the point in life where I am no longer scratching and clawing to the top and have time to spend with my legacy however, I immediately abort the relationship! This is not the way I envision this important, life-changing decision being made.

3. Nature, Nurture and Emotional Blackmail – The world is a tough place and life can be hard………….I know. Nothing has come easily to me and it is like that for the vast majority of people on this dirt ball. Some insecure men may be looking for “someone to take care of” however, the majority of us are not. Guilt is a powerful and effective tool that SHOULD HAVE NO EFFECT ON A SATANIST! Once recognized by the Satanist, the cause of such guilt should be quickly removed, including the roots. Satanists should never be victims of the sad story, the “woe is me” communications or “Weep Fest“!

Descent Into Madness CD

4. Dropping By To Invade My Privacy – I have a gate at the end of my driveway. I have a gate for a very good reason. It is not to “keep me in”; it is to “keep the unwanted out“. I do not appreciate the “drop in” without notification. When a drop-by buzzes at the gate, Izobella kindly rejects them. If they begin a long-winded justification, she turn the intercom off. Once she tells me about the incident, end of relationship. BTW, I will write a blog post dedicated to Izobella in the future. She has worked with me for many years and her life story is very inspiring!!

5. Fatal Attraction = Relationship Fatality – This point works correlates well with Point #1. Emotional instability usually manifests through comments, outbursts, sarcastic remarks, etc. The root causes of this antisocial behavior stem from insecurity, resentment, jealousy, desire to own / control the person and desperation. I do not find any of these attributes to be attractive or desirable, thus……………

I hope you find this information to be of use. 

Until Next Time,

An Obscure Footnote in the Pages of History

The Detour – Descent Into Madness

I wrote the first blog post on this site (Satanism and How to Summon Demons) on October 1, 2011. I wrote other posts in mid 2011 but after reading them with ‘fresh eyes’, I utilized something many authors grow to “love and hate”; the DELETE key. My reason for writing a blog was quite simple………

“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.”vagina

Love Letters Without Love

In my opinion, I am an ‘Idealist Realist‘. I recognize certain ideals, positivity and creative forces in our physical spacial realm. I also openly admit some people are totally lost, represent zero (0) hope to the human race and lack any soft skills required for endeavors other than a faux pas, inauspicious unfulfilled promises or words and actions of mindless, pointless hate.

In the past, I have received email correspondence from individuals that fit squarely into this demographic. These exchanges are usually disguised as “Can you answer my question(s) on Satanism” however, some are similar to a “Bouncing Betty”; planted strategically on the path to enlightenment to “fuck someone up”. I answer their question, they respond immediately with a follow-up question and I answer it as well. This is usually the point when a “theological debate” or “religious argument” is attempted by the person. This maneuver lands their email (and their email address) in the trash however, I have wasted time on someone not worthy of my time.

I have also encountered the person who “desperately needs my advice” to undo what they have done or vice versa. I have been a real “sucker” for these. I need advice from time to time and reach out to objective and knowledgeable individuals for guidance. I, in turn, have chosen to give back by helping others. This usually ends up as a life-draining attempt for them to “change my mind” and suggest whatever he / she thinks the solution should be. This is a segue to either 1) ask for me to perform some ritual that produces what they desire (i.e. gimme what I want) or 2) ask me to “spoon feed” Satanic Magic to them so they can get learn everything about magic in 20 minutes (i.e. gimme what I want).

bath tubWhile I do appreciate them thinking of me as a fucking doormat, I always attempt to explain the “work = results” theory during more foolish questions, theatrical coercion, a nude photo (or two) and when reality sets in that they will not get what they want, the inevitable attack of my Satanic capabilities (last step).

Note: I would prefer to place the last step ‘first’ so they would not contact me at all. “If I do not possess magical abilities, why the fuck did you contact me seeking a magical solution to YOUR PROBLEM?”

“Mr. Nacht, Your Coven, Holding on Line One”

I love and appreciate my coven members; they are my family. I can (and often do) discuss very personal matters with them because I know they reciprocate my feelings. Respect is a crucial requirement of Satanism and without respect, the coven will soon become a bastardized “cult” entity lead by a person who will ultimately destroy any resemblance of true Satanism. Those who remain in the group will more than likely be the next Tex Watson,  Linda Kasabian, Patricia Krenwinkel or Susan Atkins.Nothing Compares To You

Members of my coven persuaded and encouraged me to begin writing books. The idea was simple; “Share what has worked with the world”. So, the first book Magnum Opus – Secrets of the Inner Sanctum (released in October 2011) was about our coven. I feel that from that day forward, I have put my work, blogs and social media first and my beloved coven second. 

Does This Story Have A Point?

Yes. I am glad you asked. I intend to rectify this situation going forward and thus the “point” of this blog post.

I am taking a sabbatical from blogging and social media. This week represented the “straw that broke the horse’s back” and it marks a watershed moment of clarity in a never-ending nightmare to make deadlines, return correspondence, weed out / answer sincere questions, attend speaking engagements – all while leading our coven. I am so busy telling people how great Satanism is, that I miss out on the rewards that I cherish and hold very dear.

My first obligation is to Satan, my second obligation is to our Coven and everything else falls in line after these two. In my hast to do more as an ambassador of Satanism, I have neglected the first two priorities while wasting time engaged with those lacking the capacity to grasp Magic, Satan or Demonic beings. These lazy, over-confident posers want a free ride and money. she is beautifulThey truly believe Satan will give it to they simply because they “decided to sell their worthless souls”!

From time to time, I have seen people drop out of the public / social Friends always know how to contact me and that remains unchanged. I dream of virtual satanic rituals and plan to pursue in the future.

For the egomaniacs, trolls, apathetic, indolent, arrogant, impertinent,…………….I will stop there and waste neither time, word nor thought ever again.

Until next time…………or maybe not,beautiful woman

Satanic Blessings and Good Luck…….
