Later on the Morning
Star as is called became the Dragon and the Devil. Shaitan was
the base for this materization, which means to oppose, to accuse.
Lucifer was invariably the first rebel.
Lucifer is of the
Spirit of Light, from which the foundation of Luciferic Magick
is to ascend towards Godhead. The light of the spirit is based
within perception and the clarity of an awakened self. Perception
is the vehicle of knowledge and what the individual can understand.
Christianity teaches the annihilation of perception and the
repression of the awakened mind. The enthusiasm of the driven
conscious, charged with the bright Luciferian light; leads all
individuals towards God itself.
Lucifer is the Fallen
Angel of Light. Born strong in the light of the God spirit,
his crown held the most beautiful jewels from the earth. His
essence was of the Sun and divine wisdom and enlightenment shone
throughout him. No other Angel or Seraphim was as bright as
As with all beings
of light and Will, a great fire emerged within Lucifer. He sought
to become as God, to rise towards Godhead. Thus the great rebel
was born. Standing against the Holy Hierarchy, Lucifer gathered
many of his fellow Seraphim, Leviathan, Belial, Astaroth, Asmodeus/Samael,
Mephistopheles, Dagon, Sorath/Shaitan, Beelzebub and a host
of others to stand in the light of self-godhood and defy that
which stood against individual phosphorus; the infinite possibility
A great battle ensued,
Etheric and Astral bodies were devoured and torn from aggressive
attacks. The Seraphim which sought the throne of God gave all
under the flag of Lucifer. Nothing would stand in the way of
individual freedom and the light of Godhood; nothing is the
basis for destruction and the beginning of creation. The Morning
Star was rising, Angelic hosts feared these bright beings.
Finally the Holy
Angel Michael (who will prove useful in healing Magick) and
his great horde overpowered the Luciferian Spirits. They were
cast from the gates of Heaven towards the Earth. Along with
them fell the Nephilim. Descending, the spirits lost all perception
of time and space; knowing the great loss that had occurred.
Lucifer awoke before
the others. His crown, shattered; lost with the throne-fight
of Godhood was somewhere upon this earth. Lucifer stood erect,
gathering his surroundings and sense of self. "I stand and emerge
yet still, born of God yet unto only myself. The secrets of
the universe shall be mine and the hidden light is destined."
The other Angels still remained unconscious, threatening to
enter the great abyss of non-form if such would remain for any
period of time.
"I call ye forth
to awake and arise as yourselves, Gods in the light of Heaven.
Hell is ours yet we must make a Heaven within ourselves. The
universe is kind and all we shall ever need will be provided
as long as we are here to take it. Stand up and join with me.
The world can be ours under our light...Awake!"
The fallen seraphim
began to rise and take shape. They would scatter unto the various
parts of the earth and abyss. From the Ashes must the Gods and
Goddesses rise. Some descended further, some became as angels
of light. Leviathan and Samael descended, Lucifer became and
angel of light.
Belial would become
an earth bound spirit who would transform into a Demon. Astaroth,
wandering the earth on a great dragon. Leviathan, a daemon who
became of the ocean and would exist simultaneously with the
Astral Plane and the depths of the sea. Leviathan along with
the other fallen angels became an ideal, a focus of strength
whose power still remains within all of us. Awaiting the moment
of becoming, these Daemonic atavisms exist on subconscious levels
of the mind. The opening of such abyssic gates leads the psyche
towards rising forth and becoming something of evolutionary
Lucifer stands as
the fountain head of Astral Magick; (i.e., Astral Projection,
Dream Control, ect.) Lucifer is balance in the instance of both
Shadow and Light, Blood Red and Jet Black. Lucifer is the colour
of an awakened and enlightened mind. The Psyche which is open
for magical inspiration.
the significance of balance within the individual, to ascend
the individual from the beast like qualities so inherent within
our subconscious. Blavatsky wrote "Thus it stands proven that
Satan, or the red Fiery Dragon, the "Lord of Phosphorus" and
Lucifer, or "Light bearer" is in us; it is our mind-our temptor
and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and saviour from pure
is the fountain head of Sorcery and earth based Black Magic.
Asmodeus is the God of Black Witchcraft, Sorcery, Necromancy
and diabolism. The balance of Asmodeus/Ahriman is to unite the
materialistic flesh side of life with the spiritual, or Luciferic.
Falling to either side could result in the destruction of the
self. Black Magic is the focus of making the Psyche immortal,
surviving Earth bound after death. Luciferic Magick is the focus
of Astral projection and Holy Magick. Ascension is the primary
goal, To rise towards Godhead.
The Rite of Lucifer
was designed through my personal experience to affect the individual
in several ways. Change is often reversible if the self is not
on the same level as the rest. This translate that change must
happen on every molecular level. The whole must be impacted
from all sides.
Lucifer is to be
absorbed and forgotten. The fall is simply the Seraphim descending
into the flesh, the brain of the Sorcerer. Lucifer must be channeled
into the spirit itself and become aligned with the Holy Guardian
Angel for a unity to be complete. Productivity therefor rises
and a strong sense of character is built even further. Individuals
who attempt these rites must already be of sound mind as the
dangers of such if failure occurs are far too real. Insanity,
which is displacement and unbalance of the many selves that
form one union are disrupted and madness overtakes the self.
The Black Magician must be fully balanced in order to avoid
the dangers that tempt even the most stable minded.
The Shadowing Forth
of Lucifer occurs once the self absorbs and forgets the spirit.
Further Atavistic Resurgence will summon Lucifer and the Fallen
Angel shall become you in every way. This can be accomplished
later once the spirit is called forth and through the death
posture a re-alignment can be done. Consider absorbing spirits
in a modern sense similar to downloading a program on your personal
computer. Once this is done, to become a part of this spirit
the many selves must in some way be connected. The spirit is
forgot and sunk deep within the subconscious called the abyss.
When the time has come for this spirit to rise and become fully
a part of the self, the downloaded program can only work when
the computer is shut down and restarted. The mind works in this
capacity with regards to such. The spirit through the death
posture will re align it's self and the powers shall become
at his or her demand to practice.
The many spirits
of the Ascension of the Fallen operate in a similar manner except
this is far more dangerous. Many other spirits are invoked and
many are demonic energies which must be absorbed through Will
gave us the modern synthesis and foundation of Luciferian thought.
"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" and "Love
is the law, love under will". Two statements which clearly set
in motion the ascension of the seeking individual towards Godhead.
In his poem, "Hymn to Lucifer" Crowley presents the bringer
of light in a Thelemic aspect. No longer shall man be subservient
to a religion which would destroy your foundation and right
of personal choice.
Dogma is also a
trap which can lead towards spiritual stagnation. Growth is
necessary through the freedom of an open being, that through
will power and focus can change take hold and run it's natural
The Luciferian individual
is at heart a predator, however balancing action and thought
with compassion and tolerance when such emotions are heart felt.
A Thelemic individual is by definition free to decide the proper
course of which his or her life would flow. Often, clubs, orders
and other thought trapping devices will trick the individual
into accepting a code and "uniformation" of like minds. This
should be in progress only for the means of an end, a goal in
which progression and individual evolution is plausible. If
this is not so, what would be the difference between the organization
minded Occult student and the Christian Church enthusiast?
The essence of Witchcraft
in the current age seems slip and often unclear. Wicca presents
nature in a beautiful and deeply moving semblance, which in
itself, is not entirely the case. Nature is both beautiful,
positive and light filled however also destructive, murderous,
predatory and black. This is a significant balance point in
which individuals should be aware, and able to reflect with
balance. Wicca is a powerful tool for those ultimately kind
at heart, who may weave Magick within their own life to a certain
end. Dark Witchcraft, or Sabbatic Magick, is a balance of Light
and Dark energies.
Witchcraft is a
tool of the Luciferian spirit, and the God forms of Sabbatic
Magick are very much akin to the self exploring individual seeking
Godhead through Ascending. Sorcery is an extension of Witchcraft
as they are based upon the powers of the earth associated with
Water, Air and Fire. These together lead the individual towards
a higher point of understanding and if properly worked, can
lead towards Holy Magick.
Vampirism is a significant
tool in human evolution because it places in perfect harmony
the ever-changing self within natural balance. To ascend one
must devour the energies that offer themselves. Vampirism holds
its foundation in dream and myth, forming strongly in a conscious
reality, as one may know it. Vampiric Sorcery is a dangerous
Magick to control as it tests every point of mental strength
one may have developed. If unbroken, can further strengthen
the individual who would ascend to Godhead. One must delve the
depths of the psyche (abyss) in order to balance the Holy Light.
Thelema inadvertently supports and provides a significant foundation
for the like-minded individual who seeks this light.
The Vampiric Sorcerer
is not one who once the image of the self, the facade is stripped
away, would simply vanish from lack of substance. The sorcerer
would already have developed a strong body of light through
Astral and Earth Magick and be emanating this force from within.
Thus, the self man be still in constant change and flux however
the physical appearance could be stripped away no matter what
and the core be revealed even more so in this manner.
The Luciferian Character
is successful in the method of Magick and Ascension once he
or she would master both black and white magick. Chaos Magic
is of interest in it's diversity, however one must go beyond
such methods to train the self in Will and develop a strength
of discipline which often ignored by many modern Sorcerers.
Ascend through stamina and Willful direction, not mere impulse
and unevaluated circumstance.
is a possible flaw and over estimation of self. As the Luciferian
is evolved and continues growing one must be in check with the
ego. It should be understood that often the most humble will
comprehend a greater knowledge of self. Crowley often defined
"Black Brothers" as those who shut themselves off from the universe
and the cup of Babalon, which is evolution. The sorcerer must
realize that he or she is not necessarily more important than
anything else, while at the same time be in full balance with
the natural order and the survival of the psyche.
A black magician
is by no means what Crowley defined as "black brothers". The
essential study and practice of a sorcerer to ascend is significant
in the point that the individual must grow with his or her studies,
to become the topic therein. The self which is also known as
"Kia" (Austin Spare's "The Book of Pleasure") should be explored
on every possible level, understanding the foundation for the
conscious make up known as "I".
Lucifer exists in
the core of every individual; it is "it's" gift to us. Those
who awaken this individual light are blessed unto ourselves.
Self-Godhood is the step towards spiritual immortality. Those
who seek the platform of Adept in the Magickial Quest will inadvertently
perceive the basis of the balance of light and darkness. The
Angelic and the Demonic shall be united, Chaos will follow form
and such is the genetic and psychic make up of the Adept.
The face of Lucifer
has changed and formed into a plethora of disreputable images
by the Christian psyche in modern times. The ideal message received
on the astral should be, "I shall ascend" and not by chance,
"I am of evil". Such doctrines of "evil" and "good" are excuses
to not deal with the core of the individual. It is locking away
the most dangerous, most powerful and most exciting part of
the self. Once the shadow is brought into light shall a God
or Goddess begin to emerge.
Lucifer stands for
the balance of flesh and spirit. The ego or "I", constantly
changing must continue to consciously manifest in a positive
manner. As Aleister Crowley pointed out in the article entitled
"The Initiated Interpretation of Ceremonial Magic" (Published
in The Goetia):
