Hey, I’m Caspian (trans guy, 40 yo). I’m new to forums in general, so trying to get used to the format. I was a Mormon missionary when I was younger, but left the church when I realized I was queer at 24 yo. That left a spiritual void in my life for a long time. I think it was in Jan 2020 that I decided to contact Lilith with an offering, as I was interested in sex magick, and had felt drawn to her due to her association with vampire lore. I was amazed at the connection that quickly developed with Lilith and wanted to know how to stengthen that link.
I discovered Rose Crowley last year through her werewolf videos and when I found out she practiced the Left Hand Path, I contacted her with some questions. She gave me several book recommendations, including the works of EA Koetting (which I have since found out that he grew up Mormon, which I found interesting). After practicing some meditation exercises and charging a pentagram over a period of several days, I sensed a presence other than Lilith, and got the feeling that other entities wanted my attention. Rose later told me that Lilith is thought to be a gateway to the Sitra Achra, so the idea of her facilitating connections would make sense. I have since done some work with Abaddon and Asmodeus (after studying Koetting’s Grimoires), but I felt like Lucifer Amaymon had been waiting for me to acknowledge him in a formal way.
Recently, I reached out to Lucifer Amaymon and asked him what he wanted from me. I can go into detail in a seperate post, but I got the strong impression that he wants me to work with all nine Gatekeepers, as outlined in Koetting’s Grimoires. This is something I hadn’t previously considered doing, but now I feel a strong compulsion to go forward and see where it takes me.
I’ve joined this forum because I feel a bit overwhelmed right now and don’t think I’m skilled enough to be able to fulfill these ambitions. But I do have a willingness to learn, and I think there’s a lot of knowledge and wisdom here that could help.
Edit: Forgot to mention I’m Canadian, from Ontario.
Hello, hello!! >w< My name is LilacSky, and I have been practicing magick for around 2 years now. I do consider myself a green witch, although I do also practice a lot more than just green witchery. Ever since I was little kid, I have had a very strong connection with nature in general. That connection has only grown stronger as I’ve grown older. Whenever I walk through forests, I always make sure to greet as many trees as possible by usually touching their trunk or one of their branches, and doing a small exchange of energy between myself and the tree. I love talking to the ocean when I stand in the waves, even though I rarely ever get to be even close to the ocean. Every aspect of nature, I have a steady relationship with. I prefer to work with nature above all else, although I do rather enjoy different types of magick as well
Currently, I am 18 years old, and I am a child at heart kindof girl with an awkward personality. My passionate hobbies lie in art, creative journaling, listening to music, and practicing magick. If you have any questions or would like to get to know me, please send a messae my way!! ^^
Do you have experience in any specific systems or traditions of magick?
The only magick I would say I’m experienced in is green witchery or working with aspects of nature and natural life. Currently I am working on expanding my knowledge in Artistic Magick and Dragon magick with the help of some of my friends ^^
Blessings of Light and Dark Brothers and Sisters on the Path
My Birth name is Tomasz, the Slavic version of Thomas
Magically I answer to Puck Silverbreeze or just Silverbreeze
I like many of you I am sure started on my mystical path in this life as a Teenager
Growing up Roman Catholic the first paths I walked were Kabbalah, the Summit Lighthouse, and Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East by
Barid T. Spaulding
Being of Polish lines it is hard to find my pagan roots. Outside of an very strong Goddess Current using the Black Madonna
I have touched Celtic and Norse oddly Celtic doesn’t hold me strongly outside of The Morrígan
As you may notice the darker paths end up calling me back again and again.
I have been here before but went inactive, becoming very interverted
I have been told that I have a very developed Astral Temple for a living mage. I blame my Cerebral Palsy
Like E.A and I am sure some others I have explored and Experienced Eckankar
Most recently I was called to join ND Blackwood.
So I was one of those 50 where Blackwood expected 15.
To my fellow members of the Vampire Current, I bid you good hunting and a welcome to a rest point as long as you respect the rules of hospitality
Blessings and Eternal Life

Do you have any practical experience in magick?
If so, what do you practice and how long have you practiced it?
I’m from the Philippines but now lives in NYC…
Not that familiar with magick but came from a family of healers
So no practical experience of your own?
Thank you for elucidating more upon your experience, and again, welcome to the BALG forum
I’m from London, United Kingdom
I have been practicing summoning demons from the Goetia for a year on and off, with a gap around Christmas - Back practicing now for a month
Thank you for elucidating more.
Are you following a specific system or method?
I am new to this Path. Unfortunately, I have not taken a magickal name, as I don’t intuit that it would serve any purpose at this time. I would say that I am not particularly interested in any type of magick per se, although I am familiar with most of the relevant jargon, etc. My background is in Western mysticism and dilettante occultism (Golden Dawn, Thelema).
I had a profound (for me) experience that pulled me into a type of Demonolatry, which I think of as more like a type of Bhakti yoga, combined with certain vamachara tendencies, practices, etc. I would say that my current motivation is to learn more and cast a very wide net.
