Small portion of my harassment of the Constantine impersonator at Comic Con.

"Why would I ever summon a demon, demons are bad"

You know the point of Hellblazer was that it’s pretty much the only comic that EVER has portrayed ceremonial magic, the occult, various other “magical” traditions like Santeria and Vodou, and international theological/mystical concepts accurately.

"Demons are bad."

OH GOD WILL THIS BE WORSE THAN THE SUPERNATURAL TAG WITH ENOCHIAN MAGIC?????

You know, I spend a great deal of time thinking about whether or not I should someday advertise my knowledge to studios and writers who need advice on how to portray occult concepts. Because…. Where do these people fucking get their information from???

theebrainwash:
if demons work with humans to rise back up the divine hierarchy, why do angels work with humans? do you believe they were once humans? if you do, do you believe all of them were?

This is a tricky question. I dont believe in the demons vs angels thing. Not in the same way Christianity does. There are malevolent spirits, but not demons. The entities that one would call Hebrew angels feel considerably different though. Perhaps it’s possible for a once living person to become a helpful spirit but I would venture to say that most people don’t have it in them to burden themselves with other people’s troubles. When you’re dead, you want to be able to let go of your earthly worries. It takes a special person to want to save others.

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.

Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)

I wish my parents would have read this when raising me

Oh my god… As a daughter of a narcissistic mother, this made me cry. I will never treat my children how she did, leaving her kids in Texas to make payments on a house even she couldn’t afford, just so she could “live a better life” in Vegas. I will love them unconditionally and listen to every word they have to say because they deserve that out of a mother.

Yes. Hence YHVH proceeding with tzimtzum and giving us free will. Because what’s the point of creation if it’s all the same stagnant energy?

I have a working hypothesis related to this.
In the elemental/zodiacal/Hebrew correspondences of the Enochian squares, the elements rather than the zodiac signs are given for the elemental rows of Earth, because their operation is terrestrial rather than cosmological.
Being that we are of Malkuth, spirits use us as mediums to make energy concrete enough to work with, as well as whatever alchemical purposes they want. That’s probably the only reason we can control them and why they like to fuck with us. We keep energy flowing, otherwise it’s just chaotic, like trying to throw uncooked rice at a bullseye.
So, yes, we are elementals.

LeVayan Satanism: Altars, Items, and the Ritual Itself.

itsgoodforthesoul:

I am a LeVayan Satanist. I own the Satanic Rituals and The Satanic Bible written by Anton himself; the books I do not own I have read in PDF versions. They are pretty easy to find on the internet for free, and they are interesting reads for practitioners and the curious alike.

After much…

I don’t understand why some Satanists do the Enochian calls. Have you read the actual translations? The ones in the Satanic Bible are so completely wrong. Enochian doesn’t give any room for interpretation. The definitions are literal and there’s a reason its called the Angelical language, and that’s because the calls address God and the Angels. There isn’t a word for ‘Satan’. I mean, as long as you’re aware of that and still use them… Have at it.

I have about twenty bucks I can spend on a book on amazon. I want something GD or ceremonial magic or kabalah related. Suggestions? Something a little over is okay but not by too much.

Anyone here from New Mexico?

kushl0rd:

So do any of my followers live in New Mexico, USA? What’s it like? Is it affordable for a fresh-out-of school undergraduate? Are there jobs? Are there other Occultists or well-known Occult communities in the state? How about the art…

Let me convince you further. In Cruces you can rent a good 2 bedroom house for 750-800. I shit you not. The town is big enough to have their own mall but small enough to have pretty much everything within a 30 min drive.
