“True Detective” – Louisiana, Satanism, Devil Worship, Voodoo and Child Sacrifice

I have been asked by several readers if the HBO series “True Detective has accurately portrayed Voodoo (Voudon) and Devil Worship in Louisiana. After much thought, I have decided to weigh-in on the subject…….so to speak.True Detective on HBO

I grew up and spent the better part of 22 years in southern and northern Louisiana. One thing I can unequivocally say is the northern and southern parts have only one thing in common; both are in Louisiana. Almost polar opposites (in my opinion) are these two very different cultures and societies. During my years in New Orleans, I became quite accustomed to and familiar with the practices of Hoodoo, Santería and VoudonMy earliest influences of magic were from Hoodoo and Voodoo practitioners. I learned so much from those who were eager and willing to share. Most of my knowledge of these practices came predominately from African-American women. The practice of Hoodoo and Voodoo are closely related to the study of Satanic Magic and Demonic Rituals; several similarities and common denominators exist.

“Is there any monster in this world worse than man? This is hard to talk about and harder to believe, but some of the suspects have told us their intention in all of this was devil worshipping. We are in disbelief about all of this. Never in a million, million years would we have guessed that he was capable of these things.” Reference

I suppose you are reading this blog post and really wanting to hear the “nitty-gritty” of what True Detective is portraying; ritualistic child sacrifice. The fact that True Detective takes many of its elements from actual events and records, adds greatly to its realism and I believe, to its overall impact. Yes, children have been hurt and in some cases, killed during rituals and ceremonies in Louisiana.Inverted Crucifix in Woman's Mouth

“In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.” Reference

I was instinctively drawn to the first episode because it was filmed in Louisiana. After the first episode, I was hooked. While watching each episode, I could almost smell the stench of stagnant back-water bayous, feel the humidity and sweat running down my face, smell the cafe’ au lait at Café du Monde and taste the Crawfish Étouffée in New Orleans (pronounced Nawlins). The story is set in rural Louisiana nonetheless, there are countless Familiars for me. I love Louisiana and always look back in time with fondness however, it was not the best of times……Heroin almost killed meAs I said before, Louisiana has had actual cases of child molestation, children used in rituals and child sacrifice. For me, it is not a huge stretch of the imagination to accept True Detective as factual; perhaps even a documentary on ritual sacrifice or the wide-spread, systematic exploitation of those who are at a disadvantage.

I knew people who practiced certain “Rituals” in the swamps west of New Orleans. For me, they were ‘hardcore’ and over the line so I did not pursue a relationship beyond the occasional beer in the Quarter (French Quarter). While I do not know of any specific criminal activities, it would not be difficult to imagine these people being involved in something like Rust and Marty experienced in True Detective. There were always rumors of “expirations” surrounding those who operated in the shadows of the Louisiana societal fringe.  Those who have experienced life on “the street” know the best way to avoid becoming alligator bait is to keep the lips pressed tightly together. More than one person paid the ultimate price for asking too many questions or ignoring subtle, yet well-articulated advice to “shut-the-fvck-up”.Nude Satanic Ritual Altar Woman

The sacrifice of a child and rendering of innocent blood holds special magical attributes for some. To take the life of another would not be difficult for some individuals. Whether you label it Satanism, Paganism, Hoodoo, Voodoo or Politics, all have their share of sociopaths and psychopaths. They believe the use and incorporation of blood, regardless of its source, will make the coven’s magic stronger. In Louisiana, the predominance of Voodoo lends itself to being more of what True Detective is all about. References to Voudon, Marsh Cult (a.k.a. Marsh Mafia), Carcosa, Société Voudon Gnostique and Circir de mardis gras point to groups, circles, cults, covens etc. that may embrace maladaptive behaviors and incorporate them into ritualistic practices. From an aspect of Hoodoo, I would venture to say the possibilities of child sacrifice are less common simply by virtue of the ritual or magical operation.

The commission of illegal acts during rituals is nothing new. The practice has been happening since the beginning of recorded history and perhaps will continue well beyond the time you and I tread upon this dirt ball. One fact remains; children are abused and murdered every day around the world. It does not require a coven nor shouting “Hail Satan”. Our society as a whole does better than any coven could dream of doing!! For that reason, I believe the events of True Detective could in fact, happen. The sun will set on the Bayou and tomorrow, the sun will rise. Whatever happens in between is…….”better left unsaid”.

I must admit, I greatly enjoyed the series and was a bit sad after the finale. If you have not watched this series, it is On Demand and is definitely worth the investment of your time. For those who stick their heads in the sand of xtianity, be aware of the reality of the world. Xtians and the established church have perfected the art of ritual human sacrifice better than any occult practitioners.

Satanism ≠ Anarchy

Many people in modern culture today are under the false impression that Satanism is a justification to break all the rules, laws and acceptable norms of society. I’m not going to deny that being a Satanist certainly makes some people feel uninhibited. For some people, becoming a Satanist is a milestone since they have never felt uninhibited and free the way that Satanism makes them feel. I will say this however, being a Satanist does not give an individual the right to break the law or infringe upon another person’s rights. Becoming an audacious, loudmouth, asshole is not part of a Satanist’s journey….far from it actually.Alchemy Alchemical Symbols

The practice of magic in any form requires a great deal of self-control. I often read about Chaos Magic; there are many different interpretations of that term being used. For some chaos is simply going crazy. Many anarchists practice what they describe as chaos magic (what they interpret to be chaos magic). Anarchy and Satanism are not the same thing; far from it.

For an individual to be totally free is not to say that person can impose his / her will on another nor does it relieve that person from responsibility for his / her own actions. It is very frustrating because many of these people take a little bit of Satanism with a dash of Devil Worship and they bastardize it into something that has no practical application in the true magical dark arts.

There are actually many different forms of Satanism; there are those who are more Theistic….Devil Worshipers as myself; there are also those who are Spiritual Satanists as well as Atheist Satanist. I do not agree with their philosophies and that is my right, just as they may not agree with my philosophy however, I know what works for me. As long as I am not imposing my beliefs upon another, I have the right and freedom to believe what I want to believe.

Witches BrewMany in the occult community are just as irritated when those who are ignorant, begin interpreting and defining another’s belief system. I have dedicated my life to my practice of Satanic Magic. There are those who have dedicated their lives to their particular philosophy; it is not for me to judge whether they are right or wrong or otherwise! That is a xtian ideal-not a Satanic ideal. If a person wants to worship a tree, a rock, or a woman’s vagina, that is not for me to judge if it is stupid or quite intelligent. When that person attempts to interpret my beliefs or when the person attempts to impose his / her beliefs or criticize me for my beliefs, that is where his / her freedom ENDS and my freedom BEGINS.

Satanists are also not pacifists; I personally do not mind altercation and I certainly do not mind conflict. I have had many conflicts in my life and I do not run nor do I backdown from such a challenge. I will highly recommend however, that Satanists always account for their actions. If you violate the law and end up in prison, do not blame someone else; man up and acknowledge how you ended up there. I do not blame my misfortunes on anyone else just as I do not credit someone with my successes! If I am successful in a certain endeavor, I take credit for it. There is only one person that will act on your behalf without hesitation; YOU!

I will not lay down my life for another person unless I feel I absolutely should. I would not do it because of principle and I certainly would not do it because of obligation. Ultimately, my actions are direct results of a conscious decision. I will not blame anyone else for my misgivings and I certainly will not blame chance or luck; those things do not exist. There are certain circumstances that occur as mathematical logic and there are certain things that can be predicted using mathematical equations and statistical equations. Do not confuse luck and logic; they are not the same.Want To Fuck

Fate is also a concept many people misunderstand. My interpretation of fate is going to be quite different from yours. I do not believe we are predestined for anything in particular. I do not believe that Kings are predestined before they are born and I certainly do not believe that mass murderers are created while in the womb. I do not believe the higher beings have predestined or preordained anyone to be anything. Some people will say great people in history were predestined; it was his / her destiny to become that which they became. I do not agree with that. I believe each person has choices and some of those choices are very difficult.

I also believe there are circumstances people encounter during their journey of life however, it does not sentence the person to become anything other than what they want to become. If you choose motivation and have a burning desire for achievement, you can be successful in whatever you desire. Conversely, if you choose to be lazy and waste your life watching daytime television, you will never achieve anything……that is just a simple principle of life. You invest to reap; you plant seeds in order to harvest; if you do not make a plan, you will never arrive at your goal! These principles are not Satanic per se however, these principles are common sense.

Many Satanists are students of human nature. The reason why is because knowing more about humans and their thought processes will easily create an advantage for the Satanist. If you know how a person will react to certain information or stimuli, you can certainly predict the way you will be able to use that information to your advantage in the future. This is not rocket science and it really has nothing to do with magic per se yet, knowing this information and asking the demons to assist you will certainly improve your chances of fulfilling your objectives.Gulf of Mexico Aleister Nacht

Until next time, Satanic Blessings!!

Satanic Laws and Magical Abilities

Laws are put into place to protect the greater good, provide fair and equitable treatment and allow everyone an equal opportunity to do whatever they want to do. The law settles matters and the courts make a determination of who is right and wrong under the law. One thing that the law does not do is establish a person’s motives. It really does not matter if you believe in the law or if you agree with the law, what matters is you must obey that law. There are natural laws such is gravity; you may not agree with it and you may not believe that it exists however, jump off the roof of a building and the law will be equally applied to you and anyone who jumps off the building with you. There’s no differentiation between the two; you will both be hurt or killed just the same.Satanic Mistress

In the world of magic, there are laws which are immutable. You cannot work around the inevitable and these laws actually govern many of the activities and circumstances the practitioner will be experiencing. Whether you agree with these laws or not again………it does not matter. These laws are absolute and even though you don’t like them, there is no working around them and you will certainly learn to respect them. Whether a pleasant reaction, the desired result or something you do not want to experience, the choice is yours.

When a new practitioner first begins to open the doors of his or her mind, these laws are all called into question. Aren’t Satanist supposed to question everything? Aren’t Satanists supposed to question the law and authority? If you embrace this statement and take it for face value, you may have a rude awakening when trying to operate in the sphere of the parallax dimension. The laws will apply and moreover, the laws must be observed to reap the benefits and the desired result from any magical practice. For instance, alchemy has many, many processes that involve mixtures of certain substances. If you mix the wrong ones together, you may find you have just created an explosion and you may find out too late to do anything about it. Just as a Mad Chemist, an Alchemist can cause themselves great harm by not observing certain laws.

In transportation for instance, the Law of Inertia cannot be ignored. If you wonder why, simply try driving your vehicle at 70 mph and apply the brakes as hard as you can or if you run into something, you will decelerate from 70 mph to zero in the blink of an eye however, your body will continue to move. This is the effect of inertia because you cannot get around inertia and you cannot disregard it. You must learn to use it to your advantage.Grimoire Page

Let’s say that you are an aerobatics pilot and you fly a small aerobatics airplane during air shows. You will deal with inertia and gravitational forces that are exerted positively and negatively on your body through out your flying routine. You can deny or you may not agree with these laws but nonetheless, you must learn to use the laws to your advantage. You will train your body to do without maximum blood flow as you are experiencing positive gravitational (G loads) forces. The blood will drain from your head into your body. If you have not built a tolerance to such an experience and are not in top physical condition, you will quickly pass out. Pilots that are unconscious do not have a smooth landing.

If you have experienced some of the laws of magic, you will know the effects are just as real as the gravitational or G forces a pilot experiences. You will, at some point, need to mitigate those forces use them to your advantage. On the other side of the parallax, the rules are completely opposite. In magic, one thing that will work in our realm will not work in other dimension. Expectations that everything will be equal, no matter what side of the veil you are on, is completely ludicrous. For the proficient practitioner, knowing how to exploit these laws is part of preparing for the higher Satanic processes.

If you cannot deal with the small things, you certainly cannot master the larger things! Nothing proves this better than a new practitioner attempting to cast a spell. If you do not know what you are doing, you may hurt yourself more than the person you intended to hurt! It is almost like looking down the barrel of a shotgun and being totally oblivious to the effects the weapon can have on your body. Knowing “how much you don’t know” is just as important as knowing everything. If you do not know what your limitations are prior to embarking on your process, you may very well never realize what truly occurred and the damage that was done until much, much later. Just as a person exposed to a virus does not become ill immediately, you may actually go days or even weeks without feeling the first symptom of your botched spell. Rest assured, when you begin to experience those negative effects, you will know unequivocally what has happened.

You must prepare; education, training, learning……these are all words people like to use but in reality, they do not like to invest very much time, energy or money in these things. Without investing in yourself, you will simply be playing Russian Roulette. Deep in the magic chasms that are created from the positive and negative energy flows, there are instances you can turn to your advantage. You can easily harness the energy with knowledge and practice; you can form energy to create the effects that will deliver your desires. Practice makes perfect!The Satanic Coven by Aleister Nacht

In magic, keeping a current grimoire is also a wonderful way to document your magical processes. Take advantage of your historical knowledge. After a year or two years of practicing, review what you have accomplished and update your subject matter with perhaps things that worked and things that did not work. Circumstances, just as knowledge levels, are ever-changing. As you increase in knowledge, you certainly will want to expand your processes and try different things. There is no one-size-fits-all document when it comes to magic. In all books ever written on magic and magical processes, you can certainly find something new that is not covered in those volumes; just using experimentation. Do not be afraid to try a variation on a reliable and predictable process. Your investment in those things untried will pay big dividends over time! Do not become too hurried and do not become anxious or impatient; those attributes will certainly lead you to a failure! You can streamline your magical practices after you have a firm foundation built but do not do so until that foundation has been tried and tested and found to be resilient!!!!

Until next time……….Hail Satan!

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!!
