Brothers and Sisters,
I wanted to share a few of my Q & A posts from my Tumblr blog. Enjoy!
Until next time,
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.
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!
“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.”
“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”.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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?”
“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.”
“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.”
“Following these simple steps will help you achieve new heights in your Satanic Rituals, spells, hexes, etc.”
“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.”
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.
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!!
Out of curiosity, I Googled the most popular Halloween costumes of 2012 and 2013. When I was a youngster half a century ago, we were limited by what was offered at our local Walmart. This offering was usually a skeleton, Casper the friendly ghost, a vampire, Big Bird and a witch. I usually chose the vampire and all the kids of the neighborhood would collect candy and homemade treats as we went door to door. That was a time of fond memories and fun before my parents split and the christian church consumed my mother; ensuring nothing remotely resembling ‘evil’ or ‘blasphemy’ was allowed ever again……including Halloween.
During my search, I was surprised to find Witch costumes were sorely absent. Replacing the witch was Miley Cyrus (the complete Twerking Kit ?!?!??), Kim Kardashian, Duck Dynasty (could also be used for a ZZ Top costume) and characters from Breaking Bad (yes, I have lived in a cave and have not watched the much-aclaimed Breaking Bad series 🙂 ). Where was the Witch? I found what one website called “The Witch” but I do not remember witches looking like $10.00 / trick Streetwalkers! I guess times change.
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?
Those witches who do not practice Satanic Rituals may often reference “white magic” or “good magic“, which sometimes confuses those new to the Occult Arts. Satanism is sometimes viewed as purely evil and may be shunned by those witches who wish to create a clear line of demarkation. While some witches dabble in what they call the white light, others find the darkness a more suitable and comfortable environ to open the magical flow of energy. Witchcraft and Satanism should be comfortable for the practitioner and in most cases, adaptation is a necessity that enables effective rituals and magical operations. No one can build a successful practice of magic upon principles he / she does not truly believe. What would be the point?
The term Warlock is used for a male witch however, it is not imperative to accept Warlock as their assigned label. The name Witch is just fine for a male, if so desired. After all, it is only a ‘classification’ that may not sum up the person at all. Witch is only one of many synonyms of warlock. Others include astrologer, clairvoyant, magician, fortune-teller, necromancer, occultist, thaumaturge…………well, you get the point. If a male wishes to use “Witch“, no problem. The first step in destroying something wonderful is to “make everyone conform“…………..from there, failure follows. All theologies should allow a modicum of latitude for those seeking comfort and acceptance.
I respect the beliefs of others and while I may have an opinion on those beliefs, I acknowledge diversity and strongly encourage everyone to find what works for them. In the past, I have received scathing emails from some “White Magic Witches” condemning Satanism and generally calling me a “Sexist Prick” (or perhaps it was a Prickly Sexist; I’ll check to be sure…..) just because I love women and routinely use female nude pictures on my blog.
What astounded me more was one of the “good witches” threatened to throw a curse and make me pay for corrupting Wiccan Magic. This was several months ago and I have not experienced anything unusual, unless she cursed me to grow old; if so, she put a good one on me cause some mornings I feel VERY OLD!!! At least it was not ‘ceaseless crotch itch‘ or the dreaded ‘always the last square of toilet tissue curse‘. Damn, I have revealed the chink in my armor. I digress.
Sixty percent (60%) of our coven’s members came from the Wicca way of life. As one member describes it “Wicca was a primer for Satanism, which took my magic to a whole new level“. To these individuals, Satanism was the next logical progression in their path to enlightenment. We are all searchers and we continue to search until we find something that ‘works’.
For all the Witches reading this, I urge you to pursue that which makes you happy and never settle for something that does not make you feel 100% satisfied. If more people were honest with themselves, the world would certainly be a better place.
