forgot to mention demonology I have way to may books :) numerology is fun too

As I mentioned previously, I classify activities like those in my own mind under the heading of “symbology.” I’ll explain a little about what I mean by that.

People are universes unto themselves, and as the god of their universe they sometimes engage in a personal cosmogony, i.e. creating and then describing how their inner universe works. The result is often a story or description of that universe, or set of symbols and their arrangement such as a deck of cards (Tarot) or a graph of nodes and lines (Kabbalah). The permutations allowed in such systems evoke complex inter-relationships between the fundamental symbols. Since our minds are so good at finding patterns, we often resonate on a deep level with these relationships, and can use them to discover new things about ourselves.

In dreams, our minds throw together symbols from our subconscious, which can even include people we know (alive or dead) and which evoke particular associations and emotions within us. I think of symbolic systems (particularly divination systems like Tarot) as “dream synthesis tools” that allow us to create and interpret new “dreams” any time we like. This is why I see such systems as useful, despite my having no evidence that they have the power to accurately predict the future as some claim.

Archetypes are extremely important symbols, and symbolic/mythological systems like demonology are full of archetypal characters that represent deep parts of who we are. By invoking these characters in particular ways, we imbue ourselves with their power and wisdom. People with fantasy-prone personalities should be careful with this however, as for them it is easier to lose grip on reality and start believing that these entities actually control their lives. From a Satanist’s perspective, whether you believe these are literal entities or not, you don’t want anyone except you controlling your life, and you don’t want to be looking to give your power of personal responsibility to anyone or anything outside of yourself.

I've been in the dark side of life since my teens now I've been studying demons witch craft the origins of evil ect. most recently bought anton szandor laveys-satanic bible satanic rituals and the devils note book all very interesting I agree with his beliefs how did you become interested in being a Satanist? how long ago? anything interesting to share?

I first read the Satanic Bible back around 1996, and while I found many of LaVey’s ideas both provocative and useful, I’d never say I agree with all of anyone else’s beliefs. Anton LaVey was a complex character, and while I think he made a huge contribution to the backlash against oppressive beliefs, he was also a showman and in some ways a huckster.

This was also the time I was transitioning from the apocalyptic Christian beliefs I was raised with to atheism. As I explored further, it became readily apparent to me that while I did not believe in a literal god, that “atheism” by itself was not a philosophy by which one could live one’s life— it’s simply a response to the nonsense that theistic believers spout. I was fascinated by the intensely individualistic ideas of Satanism— it was at least a partial “do it yourself” toolkit for building a life philosophy. Frankly, part of what made it powerful (and fun) was the taboo-breaking aspect, but it also had roots in philosophical traditions such as Epicureanism, Nietzsche, and Objectivism, all of which I found admirable in various ways.

During this time I was also already married to a woman who had grown up in the same church I had, and despite my rather stark change of viewpoints we remained married and went on to have two wonderful boys together. Ultimately, it became apparent that we weren’t compatible for the long run and we parted. My own path has continued, and has grown to include interests such as anarchism (self-rule), symbology (into which I place divination, mythology, dream interpretation, etc.), polyamory (ethical open relationships), kink (power exchange, etc.) meditation/Kundalini, mentoring (I think I’ve been handed some great knowledge and I love to pass it on) and of course, the Left-Hand Path.

So there’s a start— feel free to ask more specific questions.

I asked because i know someone who had a similar website, but their home life was a struggle with religious parents... he eventually took his life. So I was just making sure you're all alright

Hi again, anon.

I’d be surprised if the site was so “similar” to mine. I’m a Satanist, but not a misanthrope, and not depressive, and not emo— I’m actually a pretty happy person. I do encounter a number of of Satanist’s tumblrs that dwell on darkness, horror, and death. While I think there’s nothing wrong with being fascinated by death (we’ll all get there eventually) it can certainly be a sign of depression and/or suicidal tendencies when the entire message one is sending with their blog is “I hate everyone, including myself.” Sometimes people just need to express it, other times they’re crying out for help. It can be hard to tell what’s really being said by outside observers like you and me, but I’ll tell you who should be paying attention and often isn’t: the parents.

My blog dwells on power— something that I think is innate in everyone but only manifest in few. I think that real power, real mastery, real wisdom, are actually antidotes to depression. When one has power over the real world one finds reasons to live and live well. The center of every person’s real world is themselves, and we ourselves are the first thing we need to gain power over. Only then can we go on to influence the world according to our will.

I just want to ask how you're feeling about life? Are you happy inside?

Hey Anon,

I think it’s interesting that you’d ask that question without stating why you’re interested in the answer. But set that aside… Yes, I’m extremely happy with my life, my relationships, my work, and my philosophical outlook.

I am a 21 gay boy who has been raised in a christen home his whole life and taught that what I feel and think is wrong what's your views on men loving men

You’re young, so realize you still have a lot to learn, but also realize that you know your own heart better than anyone else ever will. When deciding what you should think and how you should feel about it, there is no greater authority than yourself. Take your time and discover who you really are— look deeply into yourself and let your True Will unfold. Reject the hate that has poisoned you, and take time to recover and heal. Among all of humanity, learn to love yourself first and most deeply— then it matters not what others think of you, and only then can you love anyone else freely and deeply.

Yeah… men loving men is fine.

Haha. I don't follow, I stumbled across the tumblr. And, in my wandering back I saw imagery that has historical significance in the foundation of ancient Egyptian mythology and Christianity. I thought you had a vision of some sort which adhered to "Satanism". But it's just imagery I see. My life is wondrous, as you can see, and I reside under God's wing seeking shelter from the prying nosey eyes of the outside. What I see is an absolute misrepresentation of archaeic imagery. All of the best.

I don’t know you from Adam, and there is absolutely no reason why I should put one whit of stock in anything you say. You’ve done nothing to earn my respect, or even my interest. And to be blunt, “have a nice life” is generally interpreted as a diplomatic way of saying “piss off,” and not an invitation to brag, so take that for what it’s worth.

What does the imagery of Anubis, Medusa, and the Eye of Horus have to do with Satanism, Satan, or Lucifer? Anubis ensures that those righteous are seen off unto the after life once their heart is as light as a feather, Meudsa is a Gorgon one of three sisters and was born as she is, as for the Eye of Horus he is a precursor for Jesus of Nazareth; The Light of The World. All I see is some gothic and austere imagery used to create a pseudo-anti-Christian environment. God is austere and gothic...

Apparently you are under the mistaken assumption that I hold to (or should hold to) some sort of ideologically “pure” Satanism— as if there even could be such a thing. Symbols of any psychological depth (which includes mythological characters) are complex by nature, and what I choose to see in them is not necessarily what you see in them, or what historians say their “true original” followers saw in them. Personally, I don’t particularly associate any of the characters you mention with Christianity. (In fact, I don’t think the followers of Horus considered him a “precursor” to anything.)

I post here that which inspires me with a sense of power— no more, no less. For me, all the art I post exudes power of a quite self-centered nature, and this is plenty enough association with Satanism for me. You’re welcome to submit some imagery that you feel inspires power, and I’ll post it if I agree.

But if you simply don’t like what you find here or don’t find it compatible with your One Twue Way™ then don’t look, don’t repost, don’t follow— and have a nice life.

Theistic Satanism 101

Note: This is a repost of an article by Scholastica Magikana. Also, I am not a theistic Satanist, but there is enough confusion around the matter that I think clearer definitions such as those provided by this article are needed.

—Satanic Master

Theistic Satanism 101

Theistic Satanism is not an easy thing to define since it means different things to different people and different groups, but lets give it a try:

Theistic Satanism, also called Traditional or Spiritual Satanism, is the belief that Satan is a god, deity, or higher power, and is worthy of worship and respect. It differs from atheistic Satanism, also known as symbolic or modern Satanism, such as that followed by Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan, which believes that Satan is a symbol of a mans true nature to satisfy his desires and urges, and not an actual entity.

There are many different viewpoints and many different groups that can claim the title of Theistic Satanism but none of them have exclusive use of that title. Regardless of this, many use their own definition and their own meaning and so can cause confusion amongst people who only know of that one kind of theistic satanism. Since it is possible to have views and beliefs so divergent and still remain within the definition, given about, of theistic satanism, this confusion is understandable. Hopefully this article can bring some enlightenment.

Reverse Christianity

One of the first to come to mind and most ‘infamous’ type of theistic satanism is “Reverse Christianity”, sometimes known as devil worship. It is the belief in the Christian concept of Satan that is described in their bible. While the title is used pejoratively by some Satanists, those who label themselves as such usually assume it with pride. It is the belief that Satan is warring against the Abrahamic god and His victory is desirable. They see Satan as a champion for the freedom of humanity, but not necessarily a god but rather a fallen angel who is rebelling against the Creator. This form of theistic satanism is probably the form that most people who do not know much about Satanism think about when they think about Satanism, as well as what some Satanists think about when they think about theistic satanism.

Pantheistic/Panentheistic Satanism

Pantheistic Satanists believe that Satan is the sum of the universe, the force permeating nature and is deserving of their reverence and worship. Satan is seen as the ‘dark force of nature’ and the personification of the cosmic principle. They also believe that since Satan is ‘The All’ and since we are part of the all, then we too are part divine. Closely related to Pantheistic Satanists are Panentheistic Satanists (notice the ‘en’ between ‘pan’ and ‘theistic’) who believe that the whole of the universe makes up part of Satan but Satan is not the whole of the universe but rather more than the universe.

Polytheistic Satanism

Polytheistic Satanists worship Satan as a god but not as their only god. He is one of many in a pantheon that can be as unique as the individual believing in it. Some polytheistic satanists may not even worship Satan as the primary god in their pantheon. The polytheists overlap greatly with pantheists/panentheists as seeing the universe as part/whole of the gods. Polytheistic Satanism can also be subdivided as soft polytheists or hard polytheists. Soft Polytheists see the gods as facets of the whole, each god a part, or personality, of the whole. Hard Polytheists see the gods as separate entities from each other, distinct beings in their own right.

Theistic Satanists as a whole tend to agree that Satan wants a more equal relationship with His followers. One of a mentor/student than like that of the Abrahamic gods relationship with its followers; which is seen as one of control and repression. As such, self-development is important to theistic satanists who see it as Satan’s will for us to exercise individuality and freedom of thought.

Theistic Satanists, united in a belief of Satan, do not all adhere to the same system of morality. It is believed that Satan does not dictate rules and behaviors for His followers other than that of person responsibility, everything else is for the individual to decide for themselves. Without personal responsibility, no one can lay claim to their victories or failures and can’t be rewarded or punished accordingly and so will not grow as Satan wills it.

Like any believe system, theistic satanism is complex and is as diverse as its followers so this is by no means a complete definition of theistic satanism, but hopefully it can serve as a basis for understanding for those who need it. As an often-misunderstood path, it behooves all who call themselves Satanists to be educated on the subject and to educate others who are not enlightened on what exactly theistic satanism entails.
