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,

All Hallows Eve, Halloween, and Lex Talionis

The Details of the Devil

Once again, our sacred holiday is upon us: Halloween! While parents rape the candy aisles and children look forward to costumes and makeup, Satanists world wide look to the unholiest of celebrations. With cock-in-hand, I stand at the ready to deeply indulge in our coven’s ritual.

One thing that makes Halloween so enjoyable to me is observing our new coven members as they are immersed into the fabric of our covens. Having been initiated in September, those who have graduated from the initiation process to the lifelong learning and acquisition of knowledge begin to find his/her Satanic “center”. It is almost akin to watch a toddler take the first steps on life. To some extent, our new Satanic Brothers and Sisters have released the white-knuckled grip of mainstream indoctrination to begin walking anew in Satan’s knowledge and Lucifer’s light.The implements of the Halloween Satanic ritual are similar to those used in other ritual workings with a few differences and additions.

Profunditus Caecitas in our grimoire Silentium In Persona Diaboli, is an artifact which speaks volumes of the rewards derived from diligence, endurance, and the never-ending pursuit of Satanic knowledge. Those new to the Satanic coven are reminded that Lex Talionis is only one part of “thriving”; Chaos will only breed more chaos….period. A steady diet of truth and application thereof, is the only way to achieve the Satanic objective. Sanctum of Shadows Volume I: The Satanist is prescribed to assist new members and is required reading before formal initiation.

Magicae Firmitas

The next step in the new Satanist’s evolution involves learning how magic works through study and practical application. Sanctum of Shadows Volume II: Corpus Satanas is used to explain the relationship between the Practitioner, energy manipulation, Satan, Demons, Familiars, Ghosts, and Satanic Higher Powers.during this educational process. The knowledge breakthrough occurs when the practitioner understands and successfully applies the methods, tools and techniques of his / her newly found craft. This is not a rote-level application; not a parlor trick or sidewalk slight of hand. This is a well-planned and applied action or actions which result in a qualified change of reality. Under the guidance of a coven mentor, the new Satanist receives a solid foundation and introduction to those who can (and will) assist the Acolyte; Demons such as Azazel and Samael

Satanic Blessings for Halloween!

Grimoire for the Satanist

Begin Your Grimoire

The practitioner and true student of magic always keeps an exact record of his / her operations in a grimoire; which is a living document. There is really nothing special about the format a practitioner chooses because the content is the important and truly value-added substance of the grimoire. It can be as simple as a notebook or as elaborate as a document that is bound in the traditional sense of publishing. Some are bound in fine leather and transcribed onto parchment paper or fine stationary.

The important thing is you should accurately record the results of your workings. It is just as important to record failures (although failure really does not exist for the practitioner) as to record the successful operations and workings. The secret to magic is the ability to “create or achieve a certain result with consistencyψ. Without this valuable asset, you will not be able to move to the higher Satanic magic practices, since they are predominantly based upon consistent results of lower level processes. Competent Occult Magicians simply rearrange or “cluster” effective processes to achieve the desired foundation, which adequately supports the higher level magical operations and processes.

Cook Up Some “Witchy” Code

A grimoire is somewhat like a recipe book; “open to page 42 for the secret Satanic brew”. 🙂 You will record your potions and perhaps parts of your practice of alchemy, along with personal notes and impressions in some type of encoded text. This is where the Witches Alphabet really adds value because you can easily encode your writings and decipher just as easily when desired. All you truly need is cover from the passive reader and if you can do that, you will surely have your workings coded; 60% of ‘dabblers’ do not know anything about the Witches Alphabet!Witch's Symbols and Alphabet

Another technique that is popular for those who are bilingual is simply writing your entries in another language. If you speak Spanish and English, perhaps mixing those two with other elements will certainly make your grimoire personalized and preclude the ability of anyone without your skill-set being able to decode your messages.

It is not mandatory that you write your entries in any type of code; some practitioners are satisfied by adding an entry in English or other language and that is fine; there is nothing wrong with that at all. The reason why you might want to encode your work is simply so the work cannot be used against you in the future. If there is a remote possibility that your grimoire may fall into the wrong hands, you certainly want to take a precaution and encode your messages by the method of your choosing. If you are not concerned about your potions, spells or rituals falling into the wrong hands to be used adversely against you, there is certainly no reason to turn your words into a riddle.

Analyzing the Methods and Results

The true value of a grimoire is the ability to analyze the results of workings long after the event(s) happen. Just as a chef will adjust a recipe until he / she arrives at the perfect combination of ingredients, you too must do the same while practicing magic. Knowing what works and what does not work, what proportions and chronological order will certainly provide value as you travel along your magical journey.

Another value is recording the events that led up to the manifestation of a demon or other being; knowing the steps that lead you to that event is certainly going to be valuable. If you know how to travel to a destination, you can repeat the “travel” over and over; traveling the same way each time. You know what to expect, the time involved, risks which need to be mitigated and how to prevent “missing your turn into the destination”. Your grimoire will certainly be useful for this endeavor. In your magical practice, if you can tie three consistent operations together, always resulting as you desire, it will be very easy for you to make longer chains of these consistent ‘events’. The longer the chain, the more complex the ritual or operation and GREATER the reward.

If you 1) string letters of any alphabet together, you can 2) create words and those words can 3) form sentences which accurately 4) articulate your thoughts. The same is true with magic. If you 1) string small elements together, they can 2) form larger operations which can be assembled together in a chronological order, 3) forming a magical statement and several magical statements place together will result in a 4) magical operation that fulfills your desires……consistently!

Satanic Altar Nude WomanIf this sounds confusing, do not worry! As you travel along your magical journey, you will grow more and more familiar with these concepts of magic. Diligently record everything in your grimoire so you can review and analyze the results of each and every operation and ritual.

If you are practicing magic alone or with a group, the grimoire provides just as much value. For the lone practitioner, taking a few moments after the ritual to decompress and gather your thoughts is a wonderful way to come down from a huge magical high while writing down your observations! When working in a group, always discuss the event afterward while each person records his / her recollection in the individual’s personal grimoire.

I sincerely hope you will consider my words and begin recording in your personal grimoire. I am confident you will find it helpful!!Smooth Breasts and Great Sex

Until next time, Satanic Blessings!!!

Satanists……..

“There are those who call themselves “Satanists” who do not believe in Satan. That is precisely why their rituals and ceremonies are nothing more than meaningless buffoonery performed by dilettantes. The choice to believe in Satan is the individual’s; that belief is a very personal matter. I respect their choice however, Satanism without Satan is ludicrous………..in my opinion.”

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!!

Ode To Satanic Women – Updated

I felt this blog post needed to be dusted off and used again. After all, it is a subject that is near and dear to me. I hope you enjoy this “retread” during this Halloween season.

I have expressed my opinions of women in several posts and in my books as well. There are however, times I feel so inclined to say much more and I suppose this is one of those times.

I believe women have been slighted in the realm of theology. Women have much to contribute to any discussion on “religion” and for those who have truly seen the benefits of Satanism, they offer even more pellucid points. Women are intelligent and not to circumvent the issue, women are beautiful and worshipful creatures.

From the beginning of recorded history, women have been somewhat brushed to the side of all religions and are usually sequestered in the family home to rear the children, cook, clean and service the man of the house (whenever and however he desires and demands). History has also been rewritten to ensure the chauvinistic agenda remains strong. One of the first beauties to be historically wronged is Lilith.

Lilith originated from Jewish mythology and story-telling. The Jews were the first to “spin” the story and establish Lilith as being evil. As the story goes, Lilith was forced by three angels (Sanvi, Sansanvi and Semangelaf)to swear she would not harm women or children wearing amulets bearing the angels’ names.

Later, this story morphed into a belief that Adam and Lilith were actually husband and wife. After having sex with the archangel Samael outside the Garden of Eden, Lilith refused to submit to Adam’s wishes any longer. She firmly refused to be obedient and subservient to Adam, which reached the pinnacle of the crescendo when Lilith demanded to be “on top” during sexual intercourse. This strong woman left Eden and married Samael. As the story goes, God (who the catholic church claims condemns the use of birth control of any kind) castrated Samael so the two could not procreate (go forth and multiply). There are several symbolic metaphors and contradictions in that one sentence.

OK, I digress. This is not a blog post on Lilith. It is about women and how they have received (and continue to receive) injustice from self-professed religious gurus who would rather have a women cleaning the church toilet than providing input on intellectual topics of discussion. In my opinion, Satanism will take any of the women rejected by or formally enslaved by established religions. Their loss is our gain. Religion continues to dominate women and subject them to such appalling actions as sexual mutilation, rape and degradation. You would think that in modern society, these outlandish, farcical and demeaning Neanderthals would have evolved into males who see women as they should be seen: intelligent and articulate beings.

As to the matter of sexuality, I believe women should experiment and find what the right “thing” is for them personally. As I have said before, Satanism does not wish to enslave anyone; quite the opposite! Satanism strives to unlock the door of inhibition and allow the person to explore and find what is right for them. Satanists do not need (or want) anyone to tell them what to believe or how to conduct themselves. Freedom of spirit, mind and body is the ultimate reward for the Satanist.

For the Satanic women reading this post, I dedicate it to you and your uninhibited life and beautiful Satanic bodies!!

Do what Thou will shall be the whole of the law!!!!!!!!!!

Hail Satan
