Beginners Black Magick
Below I present steps you need to follow in order to learn black magick.
Points to remember
- You don’t need to follow these suggestions in any specific order.
- You will need to do loads of reading, internal processing, and deciding what really sits with your identity and beliefs.
- You also have to consider if you will be able to practice “hidden” and therefore have a secret life. This can be very stressing long term.
Allow 1 to 2 years:
- Learn meditation.
- Learn divination methods.
- Learn about hermeticism and hermetic magick
- Learn chaos magick
- Learn witchcraft
- Get to know grimoires, basics of demonology and read demonolatry books about the work with demons (only for those interested in satanic magick!)
- Learn shamanism
- Learn about ceremonial magick (CM)
Develop a relationship with your deities
NOTE: you don’t have to worship or even believe in a god or goddess to practice witchcraft. I know many perfectly fulfilled and effective witches who are completely atheistic or agnostic. However, if you are so inclined, developing a relationship with your deity or deities is a good idea well in advance of putting theory to practice. It’s important to remember that most witches consider witchcraft itself to be separate from religion, but many of us do have faiths that encourage and work closely with the practice of witchcraft. For many, witchcraft is a form of faith expression, a beautiful way to connect with the ones you worship and in doing so grow closer to them, yourself, and the natural world.
All these points seem like a lot of work (it is!)
Just pick a first point, go to google, type ‘meditation’ or ‘meditation exercises’ and start reading. Then search again for it and start reading again.
That is how you can begin your black magick education, one step at a time. Learn meditations, read books and try various techniques, exercises and practice, practice, practice.
