There has never been a Goddess in all the western traditions as maligned as the Goddess Lilith.
She has been called the epitome of all that is evil in the world. She was considered wild, uninhibited, argumentative and sexually deviant. She has been called the temptress, the prostitute from hell and most popularly as the succubus that comes and not only steals the semen of men as they sleep but also killing them in the process. Some of these qualities might very well be true and some not so much.
One thing we know for sure is that she is a very powerful and ancient goddess.
In this video I read a chapter from my book Lilith Magick. I hope you enjoy it. So Mote it be!
From the books author:
Baal Kadmon is an Author, and Occultist based out of New York City. In addition to the Occult, he is a Scholar of Religion, Philosopher and a Historian specializing in Ancient History, Late Antiquity and Medieval History.
In this book, we will discuss what we know of her from the Western traditions. I will present the information chronologically; I will start with the earliest known accounts of Lilith to the most recent.
Unlike Lilith’s successor, Eve, who was created from Adam’s rib, Lilith was created as an equal to Her husband. During their lovemaking, Lilith desired to mount Adam and to move astride him. Adam, however, insisted that She lay beneath him. Because Lilith considered Herself to be Adam’s equal, She did not feel that it was fair for Her to assume the subservient role and to allow Her male partner to dominate Her. Because of Her refusal to obey the commands of Her husband, Lilith finally abandoned him (although another version of the story insists that God cast Lilith out of the Garden and cursed Her).
I must warn you however, much of the evidence we have about Lilith is very biased but despite this, I think we can learn much about her and put her “reputation” into the proper perspective. Although some may consider her evil, I consider her the quintessential goddess of the left-hand path.
Lilith evolved over time into a Demoness, finding Herself feared and loathed by those who considered Her to be an evil spirit concerned with murdering newborn babies and mothers during childbirth. The association of Lilith with a child-murdering Demoness most visibly originates with the Jewish interpretation of the myth of Abyzou, a female Demon of European tradition who was allegedly responsible for miscarriages and infant mortality. She is also depicted, in contrast with the traditional image of Satan, as being the Serpent responsible for the temptation of Eve.
Amongst Zoharistic traditions, Lilith was one of two Demonesses who mated with Adam and bore innumerable Demons from this union. Another legend details that, after Her abandonment of Adam, Lilith resigned Herself to abide within the desert where She allegedly found refuge and companionship with sympathetic Demons. God sent three of his angels to retrieve Her, but Lilith denounced him. According to other sources, Lilith vowed to murder the children of men for the sins of their fathers—smiling at them and destroying them as they lay vulnerable within their beds.
In this book, we will discuss the story of Lilith and more importantly; we will learn how to tap into her fierce energy so we too can walk the left hand path with her.
She is not for the faint of heart…You have been warned.
The Magic of Lilith
“In this book we will preform 7 rituals”:
1.To Place a curse on your enemy.
2.Bind someone to do your will. (It could be for any purpose)
3.To gain Seductive powers
4.To Gain Protection from Lilith (Read carefully)
5.To gain courage and Inner Strength
6. To Gain Occult Power and Wisdom.
7.Sexually Dedicate yourself to Lilith
From this, The Magic of Lilith shows you how to set up a dedicated altar space for her and start working with her as a goddess of the left hand path.
She can be a guiding spirit and a connection to the divine feminine but at the same time she can also be wrathful wild, and dark.
Many Satanists and Demonolators honor Lilith as a protector of children and pregnant women as well as an advocate for women’s rights.
