I came into it through psychedelic shamanism which led me to discovering work of Peter Jay Carol and chaos magic. I focused primarily on sigil magick in the chaote style, but also read works on traditional magick, but as an ex christian minister I really was turned off by the Jehovah sympathetic currents. Not really till I started watching EA,s YouTube videos did I get a sense that I was on the right track with LHP. That and the stellar book by Peter Grey, Lucifer Princeps on Scarlet Imprint. I also read Raising Hell which told the history of black magicians, super awesome. I’ve practiced entirely on my own for the lions share of all this time, but I’ve had very strong psychedelically induced interactions with deities like Kali and Durga. Back in my evangelical Christian days, Behemoth cane to me as a giant bull made of lightening and introduced himself as such. At the time I didn’t realize he was inviting me to develop a relationship. In my practice I’ve gotten to a place when my invokations change the way I feel about the presence of spirits like Azazel, Lucifer, Leviathan, Behemoth and Lilith, to the place where I can see the changes they’ve made in me and the doors they are opening that would have been otherwise closed. At this stage I’m very interested in real world results and clear theophany. I’m not too showy about my practice, but I’m very serious about going deeper and finding* like minded people to work with.
