I like Spring. It’s colorful and pretty. I go on a photo rampage around this time of the year. Enjoy.
There is a certain connotation of immobility to the concept of Balance. When we say someone is balanced we are struck with an image of perfect equilibrium, of a sphere perfectly balanced atop a needle.
For me, this characteristic is anti-satanic.
The Satanist is in an eternal state of oscillation. He changes and adapts, he moves and relocates himself in order to adapt to the never ending chaos that is existence. Balance only works in a balanced world. Alas, our world isn’t.
Our world is ever changing. It moves chaotically and erratically according to an infinity of variables, well beyond our measurement. And since we cannot predict the changes of our world, the best we can do is become masters of our oscillation. The laws of nature proved to us that it is the creature that adapts the fastest and best to its ever-changing environment, that lives the longest and survives to further evolve.
The Satanist should strive to be that perfect being of nature. Unfazed by the chaos around him, he should swiftly adapt to its new environment, and make it his once again, until nature tests him once again.
Satanists are oscillators, not balancists.
A few months back an “ex-friend” so to speak confronted me on the fact that he couldn’t trust me or be my friend because my moral, or rather non-moral code and unethical thinking made me someone not trustworthy and possibly dangerous. He said I have no limits, no boundaries.
I just recently remembered this and thought: “I have no limits, no boundaries, it might make me dangerous, it might make me untrustworthy… But it is what makes me a God.”
A reminder to those who fear me: you are right to do so.
A piece of advice to those who trust me: I am not an asshole, but I definitely love myself more than I appreciate you. And if betraying that trust earns me more than you could have given me, I will do so.
Nothing comes before me. Not family, friends, or the greater good. My objectives in life and well being are priorities.
Tonight, I will tell you how I perform satanic rituals. I will give you a detailed outline of a ritual, and also how to do a quick spell, and also how can you do magic all the time through what I call “hyper-consciousness”.
My rituals are divided into 9 phases:
- Gathering the energy
- Infusing the energy
- Releasing/directing the energy
- Cleansing of self and of the altar
- “It is done”
This phase is crucial, since it will allow the ritual to unfold without unnecessary interruptions. At this stage it is best if you write down all you’re going to need during the ritual:
- What items/objects/tools are you going to use? Put them in the altar beforehand.
- Which entities and/or elements are you going to call upon? Prepare any sigils that are to be used.
- What technique are you going to use in order to gather, infuse, and direct the energy? Try to use the same kind of technique for the three phases.
- How do you plan to cleanse yourself and the altar from any energetic remains?
- How are you going to close the ritual? Are you going to just thank the entities? Make an offering? Have everything ready at this phase so that the transitions between phases of the ritual are as smooth as possible.
During the preparation phase (which can take hours or even days before the actual ritual) you should be able to imagine the whole ritual from beginning to end as vivid as possible. Write down and memorize as much as you can of all you’re going to say, and be sure to fully understand the meaning of what you say. Be precise and concise with your words.
Now the ritual begins. Opening the ritual can be as simple as lighting a candle, or ringing a bell. You can also drink a sip from your chalice. You can just close your eyes while you take a deep breath. You just need to create a symbolic separation from the mundane world around you, so you are exclusively inside your sacred mental realm.
We reached the point of no return. Once you’ve opened the ritual, there is no turning back. Any interruption on your part from now on is a lack of respect towards your magic, the deities, entities and spirits involved, and it just takes power from you, since you get distracted and your frame of mind changes focus.
During this opening phase you will want to call upon the forces that will accompany you and aid you during the ritual. Personally I call upon my four main gods for all my rituals; I like them to watch over my workings. Sometimes they will “positively” intervene, or even directly share their wisdom over the subject.
You can also invoke or call upon specific entities or spirits in order to help you more directly with the matter at hand. You can use their sigil or just their name. You can just imagine the being in question, asking it (politely) to participate.
Now that you’ve gathered all the external forces that are going to work with you, you might as well tell them why the hell you brought them here!
The description of the ritual is something you should have written down during the preparation phase. It is a way of letting all the forces involved (and your subconscious as well) know the objective of your ritual, as well as how you’re going to proceed. It is important you enunciate how you are going to proceed (in simple terms) so the external forces have an easier time working with you. Treat all the forces you’ve invoked politely, as if they were really important guests. No need for a formal tone either, you just be causal-yet-respectful about it: “I’ve called upon you all to request assistance on your part for tonight’s ritual. I intend to get a new job, and your help would be infinitely appreciated, and invaluable for my success. I will gather the energy using meditation, then I will chant to infuse it with my intent, and finally I will release it by screaming the name of my potential employer at the top of my lungs!” Be clear on your terms.
Be precise with what you want, and with some luck the results will be equally precise. The more you do rituals and invest yourself in magic, the less dependent on luck the results will be.
During this part of the ritual I like to ask the involved demons and spirits, using a pendulum, if they agree to participate and aid during the ritual. If they don’t agree to the terms of the ritual, you can tell them they can leave if they so desire, but can stay to watch the rest of the ritual. In my experience, some demons will want to watch you do magic, so they can gauge your power and decide whether you are worthy of their aid, or if you really need it. Don’t hesitate to ask them for feedback once your ritual is over. A demon’s insight on your magic can be very valuable, but their word is not law. Continue doing your thing as you feel you should; just be open to try suggestions.
Gathering of energy:
There are countless ways to gather energy. In fact, the three stages of energy manipulation (gathering, infusing, and releasing) should happen one after the other without much interruption. You can use meditation, chanting, dancing, affirmations, masturbating, etc. to gather, then infuse, then release energy. In my experience, the more seamless the transition between the stages (without mixing them, the three stages have to be clearly defined) the more effective the energy used will be.
What you want to achieve is to concentrate in one spot (outside or inside you, depending on the objective) all of the energy you intend to use during the ritual. Use your own energy first, then gather energy from the elements, your surrounding air, the Earth, the Moon, the Sun, whatever you think fits. Then you can ask the spirits/demons/deities you called upon to lend you their strength or to simply add up their energy to the energy core you’ve created.
Infusing the energy:
In this stage you need to give that raw energy core a characteristic, a purpose, a “color”, so to speak. It can be emotions, such as joy, sadness, love, or senses like sight, hearing, or characteristics such as separation, binding, healing, and destruction, soothing, agitating. Just keep it as simple as you can. If you are a beginner, you might want to infuse the energy with a bit more precise characteristic. I’ll explain more in the next phase.
As I said, try your best to keep the transitions between the three stages of energy manipulation as seamless as possible.
Releasing/directing the energy:
This is probably the most important and delicate part of the whole ritual. Misdirecting the energy will not only render the whole spell completely useless, but it also may cause adverse effects. Imagine you have a gun, you load your bullet (gathering), you chose who you’re going to shoot (infusing) but then you shoot the wrong person (failed directing)! It can be catastrophic, especially if you’re somewhat experienced and have achieved good power. I recommend beginners to infuse their energy with more precise characteristics such as “love between X and me”, “destruction for Y” etc. to compensate for their skills at directing energy.
If you ever fail to direct the energy correctly: in some cases demons don’t mind if you restart the whole manipulation of energy phase. Some will find it annoying. Some will even take it as offense. Know your demons well if you work with them.
After you’ve directed the energy, the main part of the ritual is done. Now it is time to cleanse your altar and yourself from any energetic residue. You can clean your altar by casting away the energy remnants, or use a tool specifically designed to, burn an incense, etc. To clean yourself you can do a simple meditation using your breath to exhale the energy remnants inside you, or whatever works for you. Some magicians/witches/sorcerers don’t cleanse their altar, saying that they can use the residual energy for other workings. However I think it is harder to repurpose energy that has already been infused than to gather the same amount from scratch. Do as you please.
During the closing phase you thank all the external forces that helped you and you tell them they can now leave. Be polite and respectful when addressing demons and they will be polite and respectful to you, and more inclined to come help you later on.
Take out the candles, take another sip from the chalice, ring the bell, do anything that brings you back to the physical world.
“It is done”
And now, you have to acknowledge that your ritual worked and it is taken effect. You have to believe in the strength of your working, or you will get nothing.
It worked, now you can move on, or help the ritual’s purpose in the mundane world.
And that’s it.
Example of a ritual
An altar facing north stood in the middle of a room dimly lit by a single candle and the light of the moon that penetrated through one of the windows. On the altar several items were prepared, with an empty space in the middle except for an open blank notebook and the sigil of the demon Orobas.
A shadowy figure emerged from the darkness: a man wearing a black hooded robe. He stood before the altar and checked one last time if everything was ready.
“It is time to begin.”
As he muttered these words, he lit two other candles.
The sorcerer unsheathed the ritual dagger and pointed it to the west.
“I call upon thee, Beelzebub, may you watch over my ritual.”
Then he pointed the dagger to the south.
“I call upon thee, Astaroth, may you watch over my ritual.”
The sorcerer pointed the dagger to the east.
“I call upon thee, Azazel, may you watch over my ritual.”
Finally he pointed it to the north.
“I call upon thee, Satan, may you watch over my ritual.”
The sorcerer sheathed the dagger and put it in the place it was before. He took out the pendulum from its protective bag, and held it over Orobas’ sigil.
“Orobas, powerful demon, I invoke you tonight since your help would be immensely appreciated for the ritual I am about to perform. Do you accept my invitation?”
After a few seconds, the pendulum started moving back and forth. A slight smile formed on the man’s mouth.
The sorcerer put the pendulum on top of the protective bag, not too far from the sigil. He took a step back from the altar.
“I have lived my life happily. I’ve gotten what I’ve wanted. I’ve been successful in my life. But some people that used to call me their friend now consider me a betrayer, for putting my own interests before their own. They were warned, on top of it. They knew me well, and even so they were surprised when I chose my happiness instead of theirs. What foolishness to react that way to something I was quite clear on. But now these people might represent a threat to me. A little help is always welcome. Therefore I call upon you to help me be able to defend myself against any spiritual, mental, or physical threat these people can attempt on me.”
The sorcerer held once again the pendulum over Orobas’ sigil.
“Do you accept to aid me on this ritual?”
Once again, the pendulum moved back and forth.
“Alright. I will meditate to gather the energy inside of me, and then Orobas will pour his energy in. I will then infuse the energy with the concept of invulnerability by vibrating the word. After that I shall cover myself with this energy releasing it as a protective barrier stuck to my skin.”
The sorcerer sat comfortably on a pillow and breathed deeply several times. Once he was relaxed and ready, he started meditating, concentrating energy on his chest. He visualized energy flowing from each corner of his body towards his chest. The energy moved in waves, synchronized with his breathing. Once he felt ready, he started chanting.
“In… vul… ne… ra… bi… li… ty…”
He did this for a few minutes, until he felt the energy inside him was completely in tune with the concept he had chosen.
The sorcerer then visualized the energy expanding outwards in waves and concentrating at the skin. He visualized the barrier forming on top of his skin, adhering to it. He did this until he felt all of the energy he had gathered was now adhered to his skin. He felt powerful, invincible.
Once he felt protected, he proceeded to cleanse the altar with incense, trying to make the smoke touch as many items as possible. He finally commanded all remaining energy to go away.
“Thank you all for participating. Beelzebub, Astaroth, Azazel, Satan, thank you for coming, your presence has been an honour, as it has always been. Thank you for aiding me during this ritual Orobas. I shall light a candle in your honour and let it burn entirely. It has been an honour to work with you. You may all leave at this time. The ritual is now complete.”
The sorcerer took out all of the candles, except one he left lit as an offering to Orobas.
The hooded man took a step away from the altar and said to himself:
“It is done. I am now invulnerable.”
For just a quick spell in which only you are involved, you can skip all of the phases and go directly to the energy manipulation stage. Of course, since this kind of spell is more improvised, you are going to have a hard time getting in the right state of mind directly. However your sub-consciousness is always in the right state of mind. Therefore use heavily symbolical acts in order to stimulate your subconscious into doing its magic. For example you can tear the photo of a person you’d like to curse, and then burn the pieces. You can for instance take a drawing/photo of yourself and submerge it in a pot full of coins to attract money. Stuff like that. Your imagination as well as your belief in your own power are the only limits.
Hyperconsciousness is a state I can achieve, in which I can work magic in real time without any formality.
Through meditation, you should try to achieve a state in which your physical consciousness and your spiritual subconscious become a single thing. You can feel and perceive the physical world and the spiritual one at the same time with equivalent clarity. By doing this often you will progressively learn how to enter this state (even if only for a few instants) at will. Then you can try this in the real world! By entering hyperconsciousness at key instants during your day, you will be able to manipulate energies and influencing your surroundings so as to make your life significantly better. By my research I believe that entering hyperconsciousness at will might be the path to being a live God, in some way.
So, I’ve finally moved to my new place. It’s small, but I am alone and in a calm place. I couldn’t ask for more. I finished moving all my stuff today, it was tiring, but I’m pretty happy about it.
A Satanist, as any practitioner of a mostly solitary spirituality, knows how important it is to have a place for themselves… To have a “temple” so to speak. Some Satanists’ temples are their own body. For me, it is the case, but I also have my physical equivalent, which is my altar.
I did my first ritual a few minutes ago. It had two purposes: The first one was to cleanse, purify and consecrate the new altar, as well as the whole apartment. The second one was to get revenge, and destroy those who have been a bother to me in the past few months.
I made a ritual in which I gathered my own strength, and asked my four main deities (Satan, Beelzebub, Ashtaroth and Azazel) as well as the four elements, to aid me to gather and concentrate the destructive forces of the universe. Then I invoked Orobas and Haures (if you follow my blog you should know by now they are my two protector demons) and asked them to lend me their strength and services to destroy these people who have tried (and failed) to harm me. They will learn their lesson the hard way. One does not simply fuck with a Satanic sorcerer.
I’ve been doing sorcery for 7 years, and I have successfully harmed people through magic. I am powerful, and I have proven it to myself (and to my victims). I have cursed. I have demons and gods who support me in my rituals, I am becoming a god/demon myself.
If you chose to fuck with me, so be it, but be ready to face the consequences. Natural selection will do its thing after all.
For the ritual I summoned forth the forces of my main deities, as well as the elements, and invoked into my own body the spirits Orobas and Haures. They have both previously helped me get rid and get revenge on my enemies. I lit two candles for each and one fifth candle as a thanks for answering the call.
I then wrote on a piece of paper, the fate I wanted for the individuals concerned. I wrote in capitals and in bold the keywords of their upcoming suffering. At the back of this paper I wrote my petition to Orobas and Haures, writing their names, and writing the petition to help me carry out the fate inscribed on the paper. I then folded the paper many times, and stabbed it with my dagger (which represents the element of Fire). I then proceeded to slowly burn the paper with the offering candle, using the mortar (which represents Earth) as a support for the ashes. All while slightly meditating and concentrating my energy and forces into the paper, in order to strengthen the intention of the words.
I then closed the ritual, dispelled all the negative energies from my sacred space, and told the participating entities that they could now go, thanking them in the process.
I left the offering candle lit, and it will remain like that until it is entirely consumed.
This is the aftermath of the ritual.
I’ve wanted for a long time to talk about fear in sorcery.
When I first started doing rituals, I would call upon my Gods to watch over the ritual, to be my honoured guests at my sacred space. And there to assist me if they wanted to or saw it necessary. At first suspension of disbelief has hard to achieve. I was skeptical of my own abilities and such. But the more I didrituals and workings, the more I could feel their presence. To the point that their presence was so intense I would get shivers of paranoia and spooks. But of course eventually I got used to their presence and now all I get are tingling feelings of excitement when I become aware that my Gods are here with me during ritual. It is fear that made me understand I was finally able to sesne them.
Also when meditating I usually open myself entirely and let anything in. I believe any energy, positive, negative, healthy or sickly, can be recycled and used to empower or own energy. But of course there are these little mother fucker spirits who enter your spirit to scare the shit out of you. At first I would be scared. But that fear became curiosity, and started to let myself be invaded by other spirits. I wanted to know if I could regain control, and turn their game against them. At first I would simply chase them from the sanctity of my soul, then I’d start making their journey inside of me a torture. Now I either destroy them or consume them as if food for my soul. But in any case it was fear that made me want to be the feared one. Fear, a perceived loss of control over the situation, made me want to regain this control, or at least made me aware that since the beggining I was able to control it, but didn’t realise it right away.
Curiosity out of fear also happened when I started having sleep paralysis. It was at a time where I started developing my visualisation technique and stuff. Once again fear only drew me to want to cause even more instances of sleep paralysis on myself. I wanted to be able to control it. I wanted to overcome fear by becoming over exposed to it. It was enjoyable. Not fear itself, but the feeling I was becoming less and less frightened with each sleep paralysis I had.
Fear feeds my curiosity and it has made me realise, througg exposure, that we as humans are spiritually resilient, but the first step to actually make our resilience work, is to acknowledge it. it is hard for me to understand how some people stop sorcery and witchcraft completely after having a frightening experience.
Fear, is a loss of control. Fear is ignorance. If you call yourself a Satanist, then you better study what frightened you. Experience, test, try to retake control of the situation every time you face it. Eventually you’ll suceed and you’ll realise the power inside you. The power to overcome any fear. Our soul is the soul of a God, and nothing in the astral realm can damage it without your permission, and fear is allowing them to damage you.
Feeling fear is normal, facing that fear is Satanic.
Good evening all and welcome back again to the Daily Satanist. Tonight I wanted to share with you my latest altar configuration with all my tools neatly placed on it. I will also go in a more precise description of each element.
Let’s take a look at my latest altar:
Here we can appreciate my entire altar with all my ritual tools and elements on it. You might have noticed I have somewhat of a symmetrical disposition of the elements. My altar is divided into three main areas:
Here at the right side you can find my elemental tools. Working with the elements is a very important part of my sorcery practice.
The gong at the top represents air, it is through air that vibrations are carried, sound is force traveling through air, much like magic is our will traveling in the form of energy through the fibres of the universe.
The chalice represents water. Fluidity is a characteristic of a healthy mind. Adapting our thoughts to circumstances and situations allow us to react more efficiently to problems.
The mortar and pestle represent earth. It represents where all things physical converge and mix, hence the analogy with “grounding” with the pestle. As with metal alloys, the action of mixing certain elements to create something stable and resilient is a characteristic of the earth element.
The dagger with a burnt blade represents fire. I associate fire with energy rather than heat, so fire to me represents the flame that fuels the Will into accomplishing its desires. It is the ultimate transforming force.
The three stones represent the spirit: the quartz representative of the All, the onyx representative of the Void/Nothingness, and the Lapis Lazuli representative of my soul.
The candles represent Light and Heat. They represent Knowledge and learning new things.
Frostmourne, the blade on the photo, represents Darkness and Cold. It also represents Wisdom and experiencing new things.
This is the divination area of my altar. It contains the pendulum and tarot cards.
The pendulum is useful and practical to contact spirits, demons, and Gods, provided I am already familiar with the spirit or have some sort of symbol that represents it. Note I have presented the pendulum in an Ouroboros position. This is only for esthetic reasons.
Tarot cards are an useful guidance for making choices, and knowing the possible outcome of our actions, in order to be able to change our course of action to avoid things from happening. The future isn’t written, and that is why knowing possible futures is useful. I chose The Devil as top card for esthetic reasons as well.
Finally these are the remaining elements of my altar: A figure of a fallen angel and a couple of sigils.
These sigils correspond to Orobas and Haures, two demons with whom I created an alliance. Orobas has agreed on defending me from attacks, may they be physical, mental, psychological or spiritual. Haures has agreed to destroy and obliterate anything that poses a threat to my integrity, or projects. For courtesy, and to develop a personal relationship with them, I invite them to participate in my rituals and meditations. My mind and soul is completely open to them.
Now in recent weeks I’ve been able to sign a contract with a Succubus. While communicating with her, she refused to give me her name, but she did accept to being represented by the figurine. My Succubus is also invited to attend my rituals and meditations. She accompanies me during the day sometimes as well.
And that’s all for my altar! If you want to share yours, don’t hesitate to post a link. I’d also love to see other posts regarding your altar configuration or projects!
P.S.: In recent elemental meditations I’ve seen a unique reactivity between the elements of Water, Air and Darkness, they seem to create what I call “Dark Blizzard” when fused together. The destructive power in this particulat mix of elements is amazing, and deserves further experimentation to unveil its potential. I’m going to start experimenting as well with other elemental fusions, but this one happened naturally, as if I was influenced to discover it.
