Welcome Tempest, a Shakespeare fan perhaps? Anyway glad to have you here hopefully you find what you seek. You seem like you may be the type that likes to experiment with systems and different types of magick to see what fits you best if at all. I sort of take a universalists view on it.
Welcome. Well, that is a tough one. Developing astral senses is defintely necessary. Even when you do, you might find it heart-breakingly difficult. I had a relationship like that for several years. I discovered just how much people in physical bodies take for granted when in love.
Oooo… So cute!
I’ve been a member for some time now, but I skipped introducing myself until now because I wanted to get my bearings on this page.
I feel comfortable using this handle Invizigoth since my official identity is of no concern to anyone. A few descriptional lines.
I’m a 27-year-old male Aries. I hail from Europe. I work as an operative for a local branch of a worldwide organization. I consider myself to be a self-taught, or at the very least, a self-proclaimed artist. I am a lore enthusiast and collector, though a lot can be said about that.
I’ve never really been much of a ritual practitioner, though that isn’t excluded in quite a few forms, but I’ve never felt a particular need to do so since things come quite clearly and completely spontaneously and then end up being done anyway.
I like to think myself to be a rogue scholar or a knowledge thief. I am looking for the Awoken and the Burning.
I’ve no immediate goals except as already mentioned to gather wisdom, maybe heal a bit.
Hi everyone my username is Chrollo and i’ve been a lurker here for a week until i managed to create an account. Im still developing my scrying senses and my results are on and off. Im glad that i found this forum, i can find more intersting topics and came here to learn and grow. Thank you guys for your valuable contributions, you gave motivation/ inspiration to practice and learn more. This is my short intro.
37, living in Canberra (Australia), spent along time arm chair bouncing from one thing to another - wiccan, Chaos Magician, Taoist, closeted christian, Lavey Satanist, punk rocker, warrior monk, Michael Ford stuff, ceremonial magick, power lifter, whatever Grant Morrison is… Tried to be a healer, tried to be rock star, trusted in Tyler… working on being me (in a LHP Oprah kind of sense). Found that tomorrow was always the greatest excuse and probably my biggest weakness which would leave me with unread books and empty ice-cream buckets today.
Joined to ask a question (and had it answered) and then discovered the great wealth of knowledge available her. Was also impressed with a community here that didn’t read like youtube comments.
Currently moved most by the Ahrimanic current - although I have great affection for classic demonology.
An Intro and an Outro
Me: 54 years old this year; New South Wales, Commonwealth of Australia. Magician since about the age of ten/eleven. Studied a lot and had been forced to adopt the European tradition of solitary Magick. There was no internet. Joined what was alleged to and may have been the oldest functioning Magickal Lodge in the Southern hemisphere – which ceased functioning before the death of its Imperator in 2009. That’s where I did my hard yards. And I learnt a lot – one way or the other. Years ago, before he died, I told my Magickal Teacher that I had gone left hand path.
I could tell you lots of Magickal stories, but that’s all they’d be – stories. Magick has existed as long as human kind. Every single generation has its Magicians. How do you explain this, assuming as most do, that Magick doesn’t work? All these people wasting their time and money on stuff that doesn’t work!
The material I’ve got is my own, has been tested and works. But most ‘Satanists’ are real shallow, bottom end, bottom-feeder, time wasting Armchair Magicians - having adopted a right hand path methodology which ensures that they’ll get nowhere. Almost all are self-declared High Priests or Priestesses with self-granted titles and Magical Grades. What happened to all the Low Priests and Priestesses?
Anyway, here’s a little something to take away with you:
Simple Charging: There’s lots of ways to do it, but I couldn’t be bothered with all the complications. Checkout the rune Elhaz. At least to begin with, stand barefoot on the earth or grass. Raise your straight arms with palms facing toward the sky. Call in the energies you seek. You’ll feel the energy building just above your solar plexus. When you can’t collect any more and whilst keeping your arms straight at all times, lower your palms over the talisman, sigil, Magickal weapon, human/animal body, etc. You’ll feel the energy descending through your arms. After it’s gone your palms may itch a bit. I always shake my arms as a way of formally finishing the transfer.
You can also direct collected energy in whatever direction you want. Very, very soon there’s going to be heaps of almost physical, low-grade energy for harvest. Learn now how to harvest and use. It’ll be time well spent! Trust me.
4 posts were split to a new topic: Re: Zarael’s Intro
Hello fellow magicians!
My name is Micah. Im 19, African-American and I live in Killeen, Texas .
I am a Satanist and became one after leaving Xianity somewhere around 2014(was a Xian for 11 years).
My passion is Music(I play Bass guitar, Acoustic/Electric guitar, Drums, and Keys). Its a part of me and who I am at the same time lol.
The area that Im currently working on(concerning magic) is Soul Travel and I am having great difficulty with it. I want to be able to master that then progress to Evocation and Divination.
My goals are to work with Norse Magic, Haitian Voodoo, Demonic Entities, and other Gods from indian religions like Shiva.(Ever thought about evoking Buddha? Lol)
In short, Im excited about my journey and appreciate the love from you guys.
P.S. Ill upload some pics later so you guys can see my face

Thanks guys for the love!
My humble apologies to the moderator and all concerned for not introducing myself before I posted my first comment, but here I am. (I didn’t see the notice.)
I’m an African-American male from Washington, DC born and raised. and my introduction to magick is well, or all intents and purposes, interesting, and in many ways uncanny.
You see, I was the Sunday School nerd. I knew the whole Bible stories inside and out. The other kids were amazed at how I was able to answer all the questions right. Everything was good until I discovered science and technology. Then I kept asking questions. The Sunday School teacher started giving me that look on her face that said, “Shut up!” I took the hint. At a certain point around twelve, I guess “I dropped out” of the Baptist church.
I was already the nerd that hung out in the school library. My talent for science won me many science fairs from elementary school to high school. But I suck at math! Weird, I know. I also discovered that I’m a fairly decent writer. More on that later.
In high school, I discovered my city’s excellent public library system. Then, later at around 1998, these libraries started getting Internet access. Thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. I have been doing transcendental meditation since junior high school (from an old library book). This, I think opened the gateway. Online and the public library, I found many books on the occult, mysticism, and metaphysics. By the way, all those books since disappeared. Weird, I know. Maybe people stole them. People do steal library books!
I got introduced to “Uncle Al” (Aleister Crowley) and his former student L. Ron Hubbard. (Yes, the Scientology guy.) I found the Goetia, a great book on Lucid Dreaming, Freemasonry, the Quran, and the Kabbalah. My Biblical training, I later found out came in handy. Did I mention that I had an uncle that was in the Moorish Science Temple? I’ll keep this short.
When I went to a bookstore, Barnes & Noble or Borders (I can’t remember which,) I bought copies of Donald Michael Kraig’s Modern Magick. This is the best book on magick around! It is actually used as a textbook at some universities. I later bought the Israel Regardie Middle Pillar book. To this day I use the LBRP ritual. It keeps me grounded and protected. I’m a master at lucid dreaming and visualization. I’m a fan of the Gallery of Magick books by Damon Brand. I tend to draw from different magickal traditions. Wicca, Chaos magick, Hoodoo, Voodoo, Kabbalah, Tarot, Egyptian magick, the Necronomicon, the LHP and the RHP. I am interested in the ancestral traditions of my African roots, being a Black male in America. (Not to be racist. Please don’t imply that.)
I have written two books and a blog. I make short videos, do graphic design, and some coding. And, made several attempts to write a novel. I have felt a force or the influence of the spirits when I write. I know that is a gift or talent that I was meant to have. A current goal of mine is to make money off my writing and art.
As for current struggles, they are mostly financial. I keep having dreams about financial success, but it doesn’t translate into the physical realm. As much as I visualize wealth and prosperity on the astral plane, I can’t seem to cause changes in my current reality. The richer I am in my dreams, the poorer I am, it seems. Does it have something to do with my past-life karma? Is my will not strong enough? Am I doing the wrong type of magick? Or, the wrong rituals? Or, the rituals wrong? What is the point of magick if there is no change occuring according to will? Uncle Al said, “Do as thou wilt, is the whole of the law.” What am I not doing?
Thank you for reading this long introduction.
Peace and blessings to all!
Thanks for the intro – and don’t worry, we just changed software and the new automated greeting doesn’t mention intros, it’s all a bit chaotic for now! But we’ll sort it out.

Hi my name is Connor Flood and I have been doing left hand path work for a year now at the moment I just doing a ICT course hopefully to get lot of money and to get a nice car and my favourite demon is Azazel. once there is a 17 year old man who loved life (the joker) who is very powerful and no one can touch him. But yet no know him he is just a Outcast ever word is power to the mind.
Hi Connor, I’m new here as well. My name is Michele and I’ve been doing LHP work for over 20 years.
I usually work with the Lesser Key of Solomon and evoke Watchers. I think my Watcher either quit on me or just went for a looooong coffee break.
Lately I haven’t been able to do much because every curve ball life could possibly throw at a person has hit me hard, so I need to work on getting my focus back in order to resume my work.
I used to work the psychic fairs (yes, I still laugh about that too) doing psychometry - for some reason metal objects seem to work best. I freaked too many people out and stopped getting invited back as I was also told it was “for entertainment purposes only”.
Happy to be here to learn from all of you as we never stop learning. It is an honor to be amongst kindred spirits.
And yes, that horrible pun was intended.
Hey, Cyberrend here,
Ever since I was a child I was able to see and hear spirits both of the dead, and of the living who would leave their bodies when they rested. To me there was no distinction between “their world” and “our world” and they would just be as clear to me as you would be if you were sat with me in an 80s style bar.
Growing up I have had many strong experiences which include: astral travel, being contacted by entities of all sorts in my dreams, being contacted by living people in my dreams and discovering that they remember the entire experience (gotta love validation) and some animal communication.
The thing is most of my abilities seemed to just happen in the moment, mostly triggered by emotional stimulus, for the most part I had very little control over the experience at all, and as quite a few people may find some of my abilities got filtered out and repressed, sometimes out of fear, because I was brought up in a Roman catholic family… so when I was a kid the context of those beliefs made me doubt or fear what had happened… looking back there was nothing to fear at all!
In my early teens I started reading about magic but again I was held back by the programing I recieved as a child, its only when I hit my 20 that I finally broke my chains and started learning chaos magick, I became a practitioner, and that opened my eyes, I realised that dogma was my enemy and it needed to be exorcised. I now understand that I am free to do and learn as I will So here I am:
I’m here for a few reasons:
- I want to grab hold of the reigns in my spiritual and physical life, so far ive been focussing so much on my physical life that I feel I’ve neglected my spiritual evolution too much.
- I want to be able to access, explore and truly master the abilities that I know I had.
- To be a part of a community of people who have the desire for spiritual growth and are actually doing something about it… I have no bias when it comes to the left or right hand paths.
- To expand my magical skill sets
- To engage in discussion and exploration of hell EVERYTHING! I spend too much time every day surrounded by people who flat out agree with consensus reality, and people who try to enforce their doctrines on others, i see it in a way as a challenge for me to never let myself back down, I do believe there’s a lesson in everything but not in a karmic way.
