Advanced Black Magick
- Ceremonial Magick
- Satanic rites & rituals
And here you are! Ready to look into the art of direct connection with spirit! Or more specifically….Demon.
By this stage you are ready to step between the two worlds. Some people are already comfortable with spiritual connection, and have little fear of the spirits. Each of the specific areas below can be a lifetime of study and dedication. Therefore it is important to read well and deep before embarking in serious study in any of these areas.
Something I may need to clear for you before you begin. Any people believe that the areas of black magic I’ve listed below are one and the same. Please don’t believe this as you will be stuck trying to work out how it all fits together. It doesn’t. Let me explain.
Demonology is the study of demons or beliefs about demons, especially the methods used to summon and control them. Demons, when regarded as spirits, are non-human, separable souls, or discarnate spirits which have never inhabited a body.
Ceremonial magic or ritual magic, also referred to as high magic is a broad term used in the context of Hermeticism or Western esotericism to encompass a wide variety of long, elaborate, and complex rituals of magic. It is named as such because the works included are characterized by ceremony and a myriad of necessary accessories to aid the practitioner. It can be seen as an extension of ritual magic, and in most cases synonymous with it. Popularized by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, it draws on such schools of philosophical and occult thought as Hermetic Qabalah, Enochian magic, Thelema, and the magic of various grimoires – such as King Solomon’s.
Theistic Satanism (also known as traditional Satanism, Spiritual Satanism or Devil worship) is a form of Satanism with the primary belief that Satan is an actual deity or force to revere or worship. Other characteristics of theistic Satanism may include a belief in magic, which is manipulated through ritual, although that is not a defining criterion, and theistic Satanists may focus solely on devotion.
Luciferianism can be understood best as a belief system or intellectual creed that venerates the essential and inherent characteristics that are affixed and commonly given to Lucifer. Luciferianism is often identified as an auxiliary creed or movement of Satanism, due to the common identification of Lucifer with Satan. Some Luciferians accept this identification and/or consider Lucifer as the “light bearer” and illuminated aspect of Satan, giving them the name of Satanists and the right to bear the title. Others reject it, giving the argument that Lucifer is a more positive and easy-going ideal than Satan.

The practice of magic–either white or black–depends upon the ability of the adept to control the universal life force–that which Eliphas Levi calls the great magical agent or the astral light. By the manipulation of this fluidic essence the phenomena of transcendentalism are produced.
The famous hermaphroditic Goat of Mendes was a composite creature formulated to symbolize this astral light. It is identical with Baphomet the mystic pantheos of those disciples of ceremonial magic, the Templars, who probably obtained it from the Arabians.
