A note on some of the viewpoints on the "Black magic" page. There is a difference between truthful shamanic techniques and "black magic". Black magic (sometimes called "dark shamanism") has the intent of domination over others (limiting their freedom, reduce their health/awareness, and using their energy).
 +
 +
* Now some items on that page lump these two things together IMO without clarification. I know shamanism is a deeply controversial topic in most mainstream religions, but the above clarification should help in working together on this I think. You're doing great work - as I've said before - but please try to distinguish between black/fascistic/dishonest magic and the "magic-intent-energy" which inspires/heals/makes more aware/calms the mind/etc.
 +
 +
* IMO the above points are at the crux of many ideological problems in society. We fail to discern the good from the bad, because we just accept the idea's of some priesthood-society programming without empirical/logical/historical/ethical verification.

Some understanding of the intricate theory and practice of [[911:Black_magic#Ceremonial_magic|ceremonial magic]] may be derived from a brief consideration of its underlying premises. (Extract from [http://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/sta/ "THE SECRET TEACHINGS OF ALL AGES"] by [[w:Manly_P._Hall|Manly P. Hall]])
 +
* '''First'''. The visible universe has an invisible counterpart, the higher planes of which are peopled by good and beautiful spirits; the lower planes, dark and foreboding, are the habitation of evil spirits and demons under the leadership of the Fallen Angel and his ten Princes.
 +
* '''Second'''. By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but the evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy.
 +
* '''Third'''. It is possible to make contracts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulated time the master of an elemental being.
 +
* '''Fourth'''. True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon. For this reason a black magician will go to inconceivable ends to prolong his physical life, since there is nothing for him beyond the grave.
 +
* '''The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire. Its less complex and more universal form is human selfishness, for selfishness is the fundamental cause of all worldly evil. A man will barter his eternal soul for temporal power, and down through the ages a mysterious process has been evolved which actually enables him to make this exchange.''' In its various branches the black art includes nearly all forms of ceremonial magic, necromancy, witchcraft, sorcery, and vampirism. Under the same general heading are also included mesmerism and hypnotism, except when used solely for medical purposes, and even then there is an element of risk for all concerned. '''Though the demonism of the Middle Ages seems to have disappeared, there is abundant evidence that in many forms of modern thought--especially the so-called "prosperity" psychology, "willpower-building" metaphysics, and systems of "high-pressure" salesmanship black magic has merely passed through a metamorphosis, and although its name be changed its nature remains the same.'''[http://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/sta/sta24.htm]

* Wicca comes across as an attractive religion because it portrays a strong moral code, promises peace and harmony with the universe and offers its followers the ability to tap into a supernatural source of power to be used for the benefit of mankind. It is a nature based religion and wiccans believe that they are tapping into an energy source that is naturally occurring in the world around us, and merely needs to be channelled in the right direction.
 +
* Wiccans do NOT believe in hurting people, taking drugs, killing animals, telling lies, doing sexually perversive acts, drinking animal’s blood, stealing, summoning demons (they don’t believe in demons) or performing Black magic. Wiccans don’t believe in the devil, and view him as only an element of the Christian religion.

 +
** So what is demon possession in Haiti’s Voodooism? According to the Haitians a spirit which they call "[[w:Loa|Loa]]" joins a person like a rider mounts a horse. The spirit then controls the person like a rider. The possessed person is called a "chual" which means horse, and the spirit is said to mount or saddle his victim. '''Blood sacrifices are often associated with the demon, and the possessed person will drink the blood from the sacrificed animal. Polished stones, and herbs, and [[911:Consciousness#Mind_states|trance]] and [[911:Mass_neurosis#Neurosis_psychology|dissociative]] states are used to attract spirits. While the Monarch slaves have [[911:Trauma_mind_control|trauma-based dissociative]] states, the practitioners of Voodoo have ritually induced dissociative states. Voodoo rituals will involve chanting, drums, at times handclapping and frenzied dancing to induce the dissociative states. 
 +
** In fact, several features have been identified which bring about dissociative states in the black religions of the Caribbean and South America. '''First they have dancing to a pronounced and rapid beat. Next, the induction into the dissociative state frequently follows a period of starvation and/or overbreathing (hyperventilation). The beginning of the demonic possession is characterized by a brief period of muscle inhibitions, or a collapse. The person who is experienced at being possessed acquires a specific behavior pattern for the deity that is supposedly controlling it. And finally, the head and limbs may tremor under trance, and the person may become dissociative enough that they can pick up red hot irons.''' The possessed can be conscious, semiconscious, or [[911:Consciousness#Subconscious|subconscious]]. [http://pseudoccultmedia.blogspot.com/2008/09/serpent-and-rainbow-possession-and.html] (edited)

** Voodoo has been known to be the magic of the poor and oppressed. It has been a way for black slaves to rebel against their white masters. In the early days of Haiti, the slave owners feared the sorcery of their slaves. They felt that the "black carbonaro" were dedicated to the destruction of whites. This fear still exists today. In fact most Haitians still see whites as their enemies. [[w:Francois_Duvalier|Francois Duvalier]] ("Papa Doc") was reputed to have used Voodoo as a tool to control his people. He also stressed "negritude" which is explained as a pride in blackness and African heritage.

** "In the 16th century [[w:Spencer_St._John|Spencer St. John]] (a 19th century British consul) wrote a book (in 1884) saying that '''Voodoo rites assisted in the murder and eating of children, in honor of the [[911:Occult_symbolism_X#Serpent|serpent]] god.''' [[w:William_Buehler_Seabrook| W. H. Seabrook]] was in Haiti in the twentieth century. He saw Voodoo rituals from 1915-1933, and wrote about his observations of what he called "sinister practices."[http://www.bulldozia.com/voodoo/stjohn.php]

*** It was in 1873 that she emigrated to New York City. Impressing people with her psychic abilities, she was spurred on to continue her mediumship. Mediumship (among other psychical and spiritual sciences of the time), based upon the quasi-religion known as Spiritualism which began at Rochester, NY, was a widely popular and fast-spreading field upon which Blavatsky based her career. Throughout her career she claimed to have demonstrated physical and mental psychic feats which included levitation, clairvoyance, out-of-body projection, telepathy, and clairaudience. Another claim of hers was materialization, that is, producing physical objects out of nothing, though in general, her interests were more in the area of 'theory' and 'laws' rather than demonstration.

 +
 +
* Necromancy is divination by raising the spirits of the dead. The word derives from the Greek ''nekros'' "dead" and ''manteia'' "divination". It has a subsidiary meaning reflected in an alternative and archaic form of the word, ''nigromancy'', in which the magical force of 'dark powers' is gained from or by acting upon corpses. A practitioner of necromancy is a necromancer. [http://www.indopedia.org/Necromancy.html]
 +
** The historian [[w:Strabo|Strabo]] (Strabo, xvi. 2, 39, νεκρομαντεις) refers to necromancy as the principal form of divination amongst the people of Persia; and it is believed to also have been widespread amongst the peoples of Chaldea (particularly amongst the [[w:Sabians|Sabians]] or star-worshippers), Etruria and Babylonia. The Babylonian necromancers themselves were called Manzazuu or Sha'etemmu and the spirits they raised were called Etemmu.
 +
** In the [[w:Odyssey|Odyssey]] (XI), [[w:Odysseus|Ulysses]] makes a voyage to Hades, the Underworld, and raises the spirits of the dead using spells which he had learnt from Circe. His intention was to invoke the shade of Tiresias, but he was unable to summon it alone without the accompaniment of others.
 +
** There are also many references to necromancy in the Bible. [[w:Book of Deuteronomy|The Book of Deuteronomy ]](XVIII 9–12) explicitly warns the Israelites against the [[w:Canaanite|Canaanite]] practice of divination from the dead. This warning was not always heeded: [[w:Saul|King Saul]] asked the [[w:Witch of Endor|Witch of Endor]] to invoke the shade of [[w:Samuel (Bible)|Samuel]], for example, and there are many other notable evocations of the dead within the Bible. Some might argue that Jesus Christ's raising of Lazarus from the dead was a prima facie case of necromancy.
 +
** [[w:Norse mythology|Norse mythology]] also contains examples of necromancy, such as the scene in the [[w:Völuspá|Voluspa]] in which Odin summons a seeress from the dead to tell him of the future. In [[w:Grogaldr|Grogaldr]], the first part of [[w:Svipdag|Svipdag]] summons his dead volva mother, [[w:Groa|Groa]], to cast spells for him.
 +
** The 17th century Rosicrucian [[w:Robert Fludd|Robert Fludd]] describes [[w:Goetic|Goetic]] necromancy as consisting of "diabolical commerce with unclean spirits, in rites of criminal curiosity, in illicit songs and invocations and in the evocation of the souls of the dead".
 +
** Modern souces, channeling and Spiritualism verge on necromancy when the invoked spirits are asked to reveal future events.
 +
** Necromancy may also be dressed up as sciomancy, a branch of theurgic magic.
 +
** Necromancy is extensively practised in [[911:Black_magic#Voodoo|voodoo]].

Christ is the same force as Lucifer, but moving in seemingly the opposite direction'".(Dr. Burns, quoting David Spangler, "Finding Heaven On Earth", New Age Journal, January/February 1988, Vol. 4, Issue 1, reprinted in "Masonic And Occult Symbols Illustrated", p. 188).[http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/vatican/esp_vatican18b.htm]
 +
** Spangler understands the deeper meanings of occult initiation. In the Reflections on the Christ, he explains that Lucifer is the "great initiator." Amazingly, he calls for a literal Luciferic initiation as a means of propelling mankind into the evolutionary New Age: ''"Lucifer comes to give to us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. This is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation in the New Age."'' (Reflections on the Christ, p. 45)[http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/2002/carl-teichrib/lucifer2.htm]

** [[w:Meditation|Meditation]]: Although this practice is ancient, it cannot be traced to any one person. It is essential to the practice of the [[w:Hindu religion|Hindu religion]]. As far as we know, its origin is found in Hinduism. There are many types of meditations. Meditation claims to work by quieting the mind; the meditator is supposedly able to perceive the "true" reality which lies within his or her own nature, thereby achieving spiritual [[w:Enlightenment_(concept)|"enlightenment"]]. The ultimate level of the transcendental state is "pure awareness." '''Meditation is clearly a form of [[w:self-hypnosis|self-hypnosis]] as the participant repeats the phrases over and over again concentrating on the sound not the meaning.''' The breathing becomes very shallow, barely noticeable and the influences from the outside vanish.
 +
** When one becomes proficient enough they do not need any training and simply focus within. You slow down your breathing until absolute stillness occurs. One can meditate by concentrating on their breathing and become one with their breath. Usually yoga is practiced along with this exercise, if one is serious. Here is where one's experience begins, senses of [[911:Consciousness#Oneness|oneness]] can occur as well revelations of the unity of all life and past lives. '''One can also travel into other realms, be engulfed [[w:Enlightenment_(concept)|in light]] and can meet [[w:spirit guides|spirit guides]]'''. The ultimate goal of meditation is to self realize your divinity, that you are God. Like its counterpart Yoga it is Hinduistic to its core. '''The ultimate goal of meditation and yoga is to realize you are God. "MEDITATE ON YOUR SELF" "WORSHIP YOUR SELF "YOUR GOD DWELLS WITHIN YOU AS YOU"'''. [[w:Swami_Muktananda|Swami Muktananda]].  [http://www.siddhayoga.org/ (Siddha Yoga Dham Foundation)]  Muktananda's advice to his disciples was: "Kneel to your own self. Honor and worship your own being. God dwells within you as You." This is the essence of Hinduism of which all guru's promote through yoga and meditation.[http://www.letusreason.org/nam27.htm]

Ceremonial magick is a branch of magick. Ceremonial magick, often abbreviated as CM, is a tradition inspired largely by Hermeticism and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. It includes, but is not limited to, [[w:Goetic_magick|Goetic magick]], [[911:Black_magic#Enochian_magic|Enochian Magick]], [[w:Tarot|Tarot]], [[w:Astrology|Astrology]], [[911:Black_magic#Grimoire|Grimoire]] magick, [[w:Hermetic_Qabalah|hermetic qabalah]] and [[w:Thelemic#Magick_and_ritual|Thelemic ritual]]. Ceremonial magic is commonly considered the most complex form of magick. It utilizes elaborate magic theory, draws from a large body of literature and always uses [[w:Ritual|Ritual]]. Practitioners of CM often organize themselves in magical societies such as the Ordo Templi Orientis, Argenteum Astrum, [[w:Builders_of_the_Adytum|Builders of the Adytum]], or the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

*** '''For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.''' For evocations it would be more convenient to place the blood of the victim in the Triangle — the idea being that the spirit might obtain from the blood this subtle but physical substance which was the quintessence of its life in such a manner as to enable it to take on a visible and tangible shape. Those magicians who object to the use of blood have endeavored to replace it with incense. For such a purpose the incense of Abramelin may be burnt in large quantities. [[w:Origanum_dictamnus|Dittany of Crete]] is also a valuable medium. Both these incenses are very ''catholic'' in their nature, and suitable for almost any materialization. '''But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.''' (Excerpt from the book “Magick in Theory and Practice” by Aleister Crowley [http://www.hermetic.com/crowley/aba/chap12.html CHAPTER XII - OF THE BLOODY SACRIFICE: AND MATTERS COGNATE])
 +
*** Aleister Crowley is a name recognized around the world as a deceased leader of the occult.  Passport magazine (1986) describes how Crowley maintained a lifelong attitude of setting himself up in god’s place. The article describes Crowley’s involvement in similar activities: '''“For a time, he lived with disciples at the Abbey of Thelema...near Cefalu in Sicily, Italy.  Satanism was practiced at the abbey and animal sacrifices were offered up to the devil by the men and women who lived there.  After finding out about the black magic rituals taking place at the abbey, the Italian government investigated and discovered that human infants born to the disciples were also being killed in rituals.  Crowley was expelled from Italy.” '''(Passport Magazine, 1986).[http://www.xs4all.nl/~sm4csi/nwo/MindControl/SRA-Consolidation.htm#_Historic_consistency_of]

Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will - Aleister Crowley

A note on some of the viewpoints on the "Black magic" page. There is a difference between truthful shamanic techniques and "black magic". Black magic (sometimes called "dark shamanism") has the intent of domination over others (limiting their freedom, reduce their health/awareness, and using their energy).

  • Now some items on that page lump these two things together IMO without clarification. I know shamanism is a deeply controversial topic in most mainstream religions, but the above clarification should help in working together on this I think. You're doing great work - as I've said before - but please try to distinguish between black/fascistic/dishonest magic and the "magic-intent-energy" which inspires/heals/makes more aware/calms the mind/etc.
  • IMO the above points are at the crux of many ideological problems in society. We fail to discern the good from the bad, because we just accept the idea's of some priesthood-society programming without empirical/logical/historical/ethical verification.

Types

Black magic

Some understanding of the intricate theory and practice of ceremonial magic may be derived from a brief consideration of its underlying premises. (Extract from "THE SECRET TEACHINGS OF ALL AGES" by Manly P. Hall)

  • First. The visible universe has an invisible counterpart, the higher planes of which are peopled by good and beautiful spirits; the lower planes, dark and foreboding, are the habitation of evil spirits and demons under the leadership of the Fallen Angel and his ten Princes.
  • Second. By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but the evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy.
  • Third. It is possible to make contracts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulated time the master of an elemental being.
  • Fourth. True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon. For this reason a black magician will go to inconceivable ends to prolong his physical life, since there is nothing for him beyond the grave.
  • The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire. Its less complex and more universal form is human selfishness, for selfishness is the fundamental cause of all worldly evil. A man will barter his eternal soul for temporal power, and down through the ages a mysterious process has been evolved which actually enables him to make this exchange. In its various branches the black art includes nearly all forms of ceremonial magic, necromancy, witchcraft, sorcery, and vampirism. Under the same general heading are also included mesmerism and hypnotism, except when used solely for medical purposes, and even then there is an element of risk for all concerned. Though the demonism of the Middle Ages seems to have disappeared, there is abundant evidence that in many forms of modern thought--especially the so-called "prosperity" psychology, "willpower-building" metaphysics, and systems of "high-pressure" salesmanship black magic has merely passed through a metamorphosis, and although its name be changed its nature remains the same.[1]

Witchcraft

Wicca

  • Wicca comes across as an attractive religion because it portrays a strong moral code, promises peace and harmony with the universe and offers its followers the ability to tap into a supernatural source of power to be used for the benefit of mankind. It is a nature based religion and wiccans believe that they are tapping into an energy source that is naturally occurring in the world around us, and merely needs to be channelled in the right direction.
  • Wiccans do NOT believe in hurting people, taking drugs, killing animals, telling lies, doing sexually perversive acts, drinking animal’s blood, stealing, summoning demons (they don’t believe in demons) or performing Black magic. Wiccans don’t believe in the devil, and view him as only an element of the Christian religion.

Voodoo

  • Category:Vodou
  • Spirit possession in Voodoo
    • So what is demon possession in Haiti’s Voodooism? According to the Haitians a spirit which they call "Loa" joins a person like a rider mounts a horse. The spirit then controls the person like a rider. The possessed person is called a "chual" which means horse, and the spirit is said to mount or saddle his victim. Blood sacrifices are often associated with the demon, and the possessed person will drink the blood from the sacrificed animal. Polished stones, and herbs, and trance and dissociative states are used to attract spirits. While the Monarch slaves have trauma-based dissociative states, the practitioners of Voodoo have ritually induced dissociative states. Voodoo rituals will involve chanting, drums, at times handclapping and frenzied dancing to induce the dissociative states.
    • In fact, several features have been identified which bring about dissociative states in the black religions of the Caribbean and South America. First they have dancing to a pronounced and rapid beat. Next, the induction into the dissociative state frequently follows a period of starvation and/or overbreathing (hyperventilation). The beginning of the demonic possession is characterized by a brief period of muscle inhibitions, or a collapse. The person who is experienced at being possessed acquires a specific behavior pattern for the deity that is supposedly controlling it. And finally, the head and limbs may tremor under trance, and the person may become dissociative enough that they can pick up red hot irons. The possessed can be conscious, semiconscious, or subconscious. [2] (edited)
    • Voodoo has been known to be the magic of the poor and oppressed. It has been a way for black slaves to rebel against their white masters. In the early days of Haiti, the slave owners feared the sorcery of their slaves. They felt that the "black carbonaro" were dedicated to the destruction of whites. This fear still exists today. In fact most Haitians still see whites as their enemies. Francois Duvalier ("Papa Doc") was reputed to have used Voodoo as a tool to control his people. He also stressed "negritude" which is explained as a pride in blackness and African heritage.
    • "In the 16th century Spencer St. John (a 19th century British consul) wrote a book (in 1884) saying that Voodoo rites assisted in the murder and eating of children, in honor of the serpent god. W. H. Seabrook was in Haiti in the twentieth century. He saw Voodoo rituals from 1915-1933, and wrote about his observations of what he called "sinister practices."[3]

    • Helena Blavatsky
      • It was in 1873 that she emigrated to New York City. Impressing people with her psychic abilities, she was spurred on to continue her mediumship. Mediumship (among other psychical and spiritual sciences of the time), based upon the quasi-religion known as Spiritualism which began at Rochester, NY, was a widely popular and fast-spreading field upon which Blavatsky based her career. Throughout her career she claimed to have demonstrated physical and mental psychic feats which included levitation, clairvoyance, out-of-body projection, telepathy, and clairaudience. Another claim of hers was materialization, that is, producing physical objects out of nothing, though in general, her interests were more in the area of 'theory' and 'laws' rather than demonstration.

Divination

Necromancy

  • Necromancy is divination by raising the spirits of the dead. The word derives from the Greek nekros "dead" and manteia "divination". It has a subsidiary meaning reflected in an alternative and archaic form of the word, nigromancy, in which the magical force of 'dark powers' is gained from or by acting upon corpses. A practitioner of necromancy is a necromancer. [5]
    • The historian Strabo (Strabo, xvi. 2, 39, νεκρομαντεις) refers to necromancy as the principal form of divination amongst the people of Persia; and it is believed to also have been widespread amongst the peoples of Chaldea (particularly amongst the Sabians or star-worshippers), Etruria and Babylonia. The Babylonian necromancers themselves were called Manzazuu or Sha'etemmu and the spirits they raised were called Etemmu.
    • In the Odyssey (XI), Ulysses makes a voyage to Hades, the Underworld, and raises the spirits of the dead using spells which he had learnt from Circe. His intention was to invoke the shade of Tiresias, but he was unable to summon it alone without the accompaniment of others.
    • There are also many references to necromancy in the Bible. The Book of Deuteronomy (XVIII 9–12) explicitly warns the Israelites against the Canaanite practice of divination from the dead. This warning was not always heeded: King Saul asked the Witch of Endor to invoke the shade of Samuel, for example, and there are many other notable evocations of the dead within the Bible. Some might argue that Jesus Christ's raising of Lazarus from the dead was a prima facie case of necromancy.
    • Norse mythology also contains examples of necromancy, such as the scene in the Voluspa in which Odin summons a seeress from the dead to tell him of the future. In Grogaldr, the first part of Svipdag summons his dead volva mother, Groa, to cast spells for him.
    • The 17th century Rosicrucian Robert Fludd describes Goetic necromancy as consisting of "diabolical commerce with unclean spirits, in rites of criminal curiosity, in illicit songs and invocations and in the evocation of the souls of the dead".
    • Modern souces, channeling and Spiritualism verge on necromancy when the invoked spirits are asked to reveal future events.
    • Necromancy may also be dressed up as sciomancy, a branch of theurgic magic.
    • Necromancy is extensively practised in voodoo.


Luciferianism

“The Jesuit General, and the other high Jesuit Generals, they are sorcerers. They are Luciferians, and they worship what they would call Lucifer. They do not believe in Satan. They believe in Lucifer.” The Black Pope: Interview of Eric Jon Phelps VaticanAssassins.com

    • "The Apocalypse is, to those who receive the nineteenth Degree, the Apotheosis of that Sublime Faith which aspires to God alone, and despises all the pomps and works of Lucifer. LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls? Doubt it not! for traditions are full of Divine Revelations and Inspirations: and Inspiration is not of one Age nor of one Creed. Plato and Philo, also, were inspired."

    • "The day has come when Fellow Craftsman must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion , which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, TUBAL-CAIN, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare." (Manly P.

If I fail to bring him each year the offering specified above, then my own soul shall be forfeit to him. Signed..... { Invocant signs pact with his own blood } " 'The Secret Teaching Of All Ages' by Manly Palmer Hall 33° p. 104
  • Helena Blavatsky she wrote occult classics entitled "The Secret Doctrine" and "Isis Unveiled" which state:
    • "It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God. Lucifer represents... Life... Thought... Progress... Civilization... Liberty... Independance... Lucifer is the Logos...the Serpent, the Savior". on pages 171, 225, 255 (Volume II). [6]

    • "The Celestial Virgin which thus becomes the Mother of Gods and Devils at one and the same time; for she is the ever-loving beneficent Deity...but in antiquity and reality Lucifer or Luciferius is the name. Lucifer is divine and terrestial Light, 'the Holy Ghost' and "Satan' at one and the same time." page 539 (Volume?)[8]
  • David Spangler (See also United Nations NewAge members)
    • "Lucifer prepares man in all ways for the experience of Christhood and the Christ prepares man for the experience of God. But the light that reveals to us the presence of the Christ comes from Lucifer . He is the light giver. He is aptly named the Morning Star because it is his light that heralds for man the dawn of a greater consciousness. He is present when that dawn is realized ... Christ is the same force as Lucifer, but moving in seemingly the opposite direction'".(Dr. Burns, quoting David Spangler, "Finding Heaven On Earth", New Age Journal, January/February 1988, Vol. 4, Issue 1, reprinted in "Masonic And Occult Symbols Illustrated", p. 188).[9]
    • Spangler understands the deeper meanings of occult initiation. In the Reflections on the Christ, he explains that Lucifer is the "great initiator." Amazingly, he calls for a literal Luciferic initiation as a means of propelling mankind into the evolutionary New Age: "Lucifer comes to give to us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. This is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation in the New Age." (Reflections on the Christ, p. 45)[10]

Ceremonial magic

Ceremonial magick is a branch of magick. Ceremonial magick, often abbreviated as CM, is a tradition inspired largely by Hermeticism and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. It includes, but is not limited to, Goetic magick, Enochian Magick, Tarot, Astrology, Grimoire magick, hermetic qabalah and Thelemic ritual. Ceremonial magic is commonly considered the most complex form of magick. It utilizes elaborate magic theory, draws from a large body of literature and always uses Ritual. Practitioners of CM often organize themselves in magical societies such as the Ordo Templi Orientis, Argenteum Astrum, Builders of the Adytum, or the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Important influences on the tradition include Israel Regardie, Aleister Crowley, Dion Fortune, Eliphas Levi and Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa.[13]

      • For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim. For evocations it would be more convenient to place the blood of the victim in the Triangle — the idea being that the spirit might obtain from the blood this subtle but physical substance which was the quintessence of its life in such a manner as to enable it to take on a visible and tangible shape. Those magicians who object to the use of blood have endeavored to replace it with incense. For such a purpose the incense of Abramelin may be burnt in large quantities. Dittany of Crete is also a valuable medium. Both these incenses are very catholic in their nature, and suitable for almost any materialization. But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best. (Excerpt from the book “Magick in Theory and Practice” by Aleister Crowley CHAPTER XII - OF THE BLOODY SACRIFICE: AND MATTERS COGNATE)
      • Aleister Crowley is a name recognized around the world as a deceased leader of the occult. Passport magazine (1986) describes how Crowley maintained a lifelong attitude of setting himself up in god’s place. The article describes Crowley’s involvement in similar activities: “For a time, he lived with disciples at the Abbey of Thelema...near Cefalu in Sicily, Italy. Satanism was practiced at the abbey and animal sacrifices were offered up to the devil by the men and women who lived there. After finding out about the black magic rituals taking place at the abbey, the Italian government investigated and discovered that human infants born to the disciples were also being killed in rituals. Crowley was expelled from Italy.” (Passport Magazine, 1986).[14]

      • "In hard core satanic groups they believe the best way to raise the energy are either the sexual act or by murdering something, either an animal or a person...an enormous amount of energy is released...with a human being there is even more energy released...if you want to raise the ultimate kind of power you sacrifice someone. The first is the baby as there is a huge amount of life energy, next is the virgin, and finally anybody." (video: Interview with an Ex Vampire Part 5)
