Well I think I’ve been lurking around silently long enough (TL;DR below).
Hiya guys, call me Rima. I’m new to the LHP, but definitely not new to spirituality. Since I was 12 I’ve been delving into whatever was available in the New Age/Occult section at my local Chapters: psychic mediumship, divination, mythology, Doreen Virtue (shudders), meditations of all sorts, angelic work, aliens, starseeds + galactic federation contact, astral projection, spirit guides, crystals, ayahuasca ft. the rest of the psychedelic gang, shadow work, reiki, both witchcraft and wicca, and the list goes on.
Fun stuff. Now, I see it all as a primer for the work that is to come. I’ve realized now that both Lucifer and Azazel have been dropping their names here and there throughout my high school and college life. Hell, back in the good ol’ PS3 days my first PSN was “LucifersElf”.
“Why did you choose the name Lucifer,” my lovely Catholic classmates asked, puffing themselves over their mics on PSN.
“I just thought of it. It sounds cool,” I replied.
“You know that’s the name of the Devil right??”
In no way am I taking any credit lol. I mean, I must have heard his name from somewhere. Point is that his name, and Azazel’s, piqued my interest.
Fast forward to today: I find myself in university, majoring in Archaeology. I’m snooping around for information on angelic magick. I find Damon Brand. I find the Gallery of Magick. I find one of their books, “Demons of Magick”. My interest in demons skyrockets for the second time in my life (I was 16 the first time). But I was afraid, so I looked into “darker angels” instead. Through information on the Watchers I found Azazel’s name once again.
And his name did not stop popping into my head ever since. It was LOUD and CLEAR, like my stomach when it remembers that IKEA’s $1.99 breakfast exists. I had to have it. I had to know why Azazel’s name over literally any other entity. It was only when I finally answered his call that his name ceased to pop in sporadically. Now, I find myself amongst all you lovely people.
For now, just connecting via sigils and enns have yielded wonderful results. Being able to connect with both Azazel and Lucifer has been amazing, and I’m really excited to just keep going and experimenting. Their help with developing my personal gnosis has been exceptional, and I learn more from them every day. I eventually want to work towards full rituals and full evocations, just to immerse myself in both their presence and that of the other demonic kings. I love this journey, and it is so great to finally have some people to share it with. I look forward to riding this wave with you all.
TL;DR: I was super into fluffy shit and now I’m super into Satan
