I Performed a Ritual

Hey there, friends, I’m dropping in to say hello! I survived my crazy week and am now operating at my acceptable level of stress. It was a great time, but I didn’t get to talk about my ritual two weekends ago!

A few days ago, somebody asked me to address ritual magic and how I interpret it. I will give my opinion, but I’d like to take the time to mind everybody that, while I am an Active Member of the Church of Satan, I do not speak for the Church of Satan or any of its other members.

My Ritual Outfit

So, my friend Colby and I set up everything at his house, but we had to make a few changes to the ritual due to the fact that fire is a danger we were unwilling to risk. Instead, we used water. The necessary candles were used, we just didn’t feel comfortable burning anything in his basement.

I recited the proper words and we went through compassion, destruction, and lust, as we had discussed before going into the chamber. I don’t know why he needed to ritualize, nor did he know my intentions, but I knew enough to formulate a ritual around our needs.

I don’t want to go very far into what the ritual actually looked like, as it is depicted on the Church of Satan’s Youtube, as well in The Satanic Bible. There were candles, robes, music by my boy Hexenkraft, bells, and everything else that goes along with entering the ritual chamber. I will, though, talk about how it made me feel and how I use Ritual Magic.

When I perform a ritual, it’s because I have done everything in the physical world I could possible do to influence my desired outcome. If I, let’s say, had my eye on a guy who I wanted to go out with, I would have used every trick in The Satanic Witch, bringing out the big Lesser Magic “guns” each time I have the opportunity, in order to draw him to me. If I have done all that I, myself, can do, I might decide to perform a ritual. This is a way to take all my strong, emotional, powerful feelings and throw them from my body, towards the object of the ritual, and use that power to also help in reaching my desires.

It also clears my mind, taking a weight off my shoulders, because I feel as though I really have done EVERYTHING. I have covered all of my bases and there would be no reason to stress anymore, meaning that I can move on and put my energy into other creative or professional endeavors. My energy is wasted on worrying about that which I can’t control, and my energy is my power. I don’t want to waste it.

So, after my ritual, I felt lighter than air. I felt dark and powerful and that I could have moved a mountain with just a glance. It was a wonderful, electric feeling that I took with me the rest of the night out with my friends, and man did I have a good time!

That is what ritual means to me, so it might be different for other Satanists. Just like people, no two rituals are the same and asking Reverend Campbell would probably have a different answer than me, so I recommend asking others and, even better, doing your own! There’s no better way to experience a ritual than just doing on yourself.

I hope you liked this little entry and if you have any questions or comments you can email me or comment below and I’ll check them out. Be sure to check out my Youtube videos where I sometimes post instead of on here and follow me on Twitter if you want to really know what’s going on in my brain.

I’ll see you on the other side, my friends.

I’m Pissed

So, I’m scoring along on Twitter today and I’m seeing the usual crap about Trump and some stuff about the Yanni vs Laurel thing (Fuck y’all I’m team Lauren) when all of a sudden I see an article about a teacher who decided it would be a good idea to drown two raccoons in front of his freaking students.

Not these, but they looked like this.

YUP! You read that right! Let me give you the full story.

So this teacher, Dewie Brewton, who has been teaching at the school for 34 years, caught two raccoons in traps that had allegedly killed a few of the school’s chickens. So, after he had them trapped, he had students help him fill up a tub with water and assist him in holding the cages in the water as the animals fought to breathe, eventually succumbing to their fate.

This is unacceptable and I hope this teacher is fired as soon as possible. Let me explain a few things. My dad is a hunter and performs predator control where he will trap, hunt, kill, or relocate animals depending on what the situation is. Would he have killed the raccoons? Probably.

Here’s the difference: My Dad is not cruel. He doesn’t want these animals to suffer and is really hard on himself if he doesn’t give an animal a clean, quick death. Also, he doesn’t do It around students! Also, his damn job was to kill the animals who were causing harm to livestock or threatening communities.

Mr. Brewton’s job is to teach. I’m a teacher and I know that the job requires more teaching about life and the way the world works than actual math or science lessons. The teacher should have shown the students that animals are only doing what they are doing to survive. He should have showed them how wild they are and how we have to have compassion for animals.

Unholy FUCK they’re cute. 

Here’s what I would have done. I would have brought the students out to see the animals. We would have spoken about what they look like, why they would kill the chickens, what they are acting like, and what they might be doing if they weren’t hanging out with us. Then I would have loaded them up into my car and taken them to a wooded area and set them free.

Maybe that’s just because I’m a Satanist and I value life for all. Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for those Trash Ninjas. Who knows?

I’ll be posting a video later, my Lovely Devils. Stay tuned.

HS!
