Figured I’d start this to share my brand new journey into black magick.
Here’s a bit of history first:
I’m 30 now, but I began dabbling in the occult when I was around 10 or 11 years old. My older cousin introduced me to Wicca, but I got into some of the more ceremonial magick soon after.
Thing is that it was always hard to do much with it since I’m visually impaired, and also lived in an area where there are really very few practicing any sort of alternative path.
I found some resources online, but it was all about using candles, and incense, and showing diagrams that I couldn’t see. I learned the LBRP, middle pillar and some other basic rituals, but that was about as far as I got.
Still I was absolutely fascinated by it. I felt like I was delving into a world far beyond my imagination.
After that, every few years I’d stick my toes into the occult again to see if I could make more progress. About ten years ago I met someone who talked about summoning demons, but he told me all sorts of preparation was required, and that it was dangerous, so I never went through with it. I think he was doing it more from the RHP approach of intimidation.
About two years ago I was first introduced to the LHP. I came across the Temple of Set, which seemed pretty interesting. I read the book, Lords of the Left Hand Path, which I really enjoyed.
I performed some black magick rituals, and it was pretty intense. But still didn’t have a ton of guidance so ran into the same obstacles. Still, the LHP resonated a lot more than the RHP ever did. I resonated with the idea of being my own god especially because I had been getting into the law of attraction and having quite a bit of success with that.
I mentioned this elsewhere but about three years ago, Hades started visiting me and helping me in various ways. It wasn’t in a ritual context, he just started showing up. His advice really helped though and my life quickly got on track.
Every few months, once I felt like I had assimilated the advice he gave, I’d ask for the next level, and pretty soon I’d have another breakthrough. I think he led me to the LHP, because that was the next level for me.
Anyway coming up to this year, I thought I’d take another stab at the occult…I really wanted it to work.
Well I was looking for a refresher on the LBRP, and found a video by E.A. on YouTube. I loved his energy and he seemed super knowledgeable and genuine. His video led me to the BALG website and the book.
I’m skeptical though so before buying the book, I did some research on E.A. I was a bit put off at first because there’s a lot of hate for him in the occult community it seems. I have no idea why now, as he comes across as very genuine.
But something really called me to this website and his books, so I just figured I’d jump in and judge for myself.
Still no idea where all the hate comes from, but this whole community, and all his writings and other resources, totally resonate with me.
Anyway that’s just a bit of my history. I’ll post more below about my more recent experiences.
