The Psychic Vampyres are the Real Vampires

Psychic vampyrism, which is a known technique of white and black magickians alike, is the practice of feeding upon the spiritual energy of other persons, and sanguine vampyrism is the act of drinking human blood for sustenance. Most people who practice sanguine vampyrism consider drinking blood to be nothing more than a particularly potent way of taking someone else’s spiritual energy.

While most black magickians see vampyrism as little more than an optional practice which they may or may not adopt, some authorities amongst modern systems of vampyric magick believe that some humans are born with anomalies of the spiritual body which require them to feed upon exogenous spiritual energy instead of recycling nature’s prana like the majority of people do. Initiates of the Black Lodge who practice vampyrism tend to doubt the reality of born vampyres, but vampyres external to the  “Left Hand Path” insist on self-identifying as born vampyres.

I initially adopted the practice of vampyrism as nothing more than another spiritual exercise to improve my magickal talents in preparation for all the demon-summoning I dreamed of doing. I’ve practiced vampyrism about as long as I’ve practiced Satanism, and after leading a Hecatean-Qliphothic coven of psychic vampyres for a year, I’m confident in my self-identification as a born vampyre.

For the black magickians in my audience who don’t believe in born vampyres, I’d recommend the books The Ethical Psychic Vampire by Raven Kaldera and The Psychic Vampire Codex by Michelle Bellenger– two self-identified born vampyres. Once you’ve read those two books, or even just Bellenger’s, you’ll see all treatises on the practice of psychic vampyrism arising from Satanists, Luciferians, Niners, etc. as completely useless. In short, Bellenger believed in born vampyres, and there is no fucking way she would get that wrong– let alone her and Kaldera both. Not only did Bellenger write a better manual of vampyric magick than anybody in any of the religions that influence me, she wrote the best encyclopedia-style text on demonology I’ve ever read– and that’s only a portion of her immense literary corpus.

After reading Vampires: Burial and DeathThe Encyclopedia of Vampire MythologyThe Vampire Encyclopedia, and more, I have reached a conclusion: vampyre myths come about from rumors about real vampyre– both vampyres who didn’t know what they were and antiquity’s underground black magickians.

The overwhelming majority of vampyres described in world mythology fall into one or more of four categories: animated corpses, living human witches, the shades of deceased humans, and predatory species of evil spirits. Mixtures like a human corpse inhabited by a demon or the predatory ghost of human witch (compare that to the Undead Gods) exemplify the grey areas between the four mythological demographics.

Many mythological vampyres, including some therianthropic species, were considered to be either the astral doubles or familiar spirits of living human black magickians. In some cultures, the community’s benevolent practitioners of therionick magick, which were like any other magickians living in and trusted by our ancestors’ civilizations, would protect the villagers from vampyric practitioners of therionick magick in regular astral combat– at least, that’s what the people believed (this will be relevant later).

Generally speaking, mythological vampyres most often shapeshifted into stereotypically diabolic animals like pigs, serpents, cats, etc. rather than wolves. Werewolf trials and vampyre trials are lesser-known phenomena under the umbrella of the witch hunt phenomenon, with vampyre hunters being a strange fringe amongst the witchhunters who justified their belief in vampyres with arguments taken from Malleus Maleficarum. Werewolf myths are also believed to have some origin in the Pagan practice wherein warriors adorned themselves in wolf pelts and engendered altered states of consciousness.

While some mythological vampyres fed on the spiritual energy of humans, most of them drank human blood, including notable instances of living human witches drinking blood for magickal power. Needless to say, drinking human blood is pretty fucking conspicuous, so the fact that the preponderance of vampyres in world mythology drank human blood instead of feeding on spiritual energy makes perfect sense if these myths did arise from real predation by real spirits and witches. After all, how many people are psychic enough to know that a sorcerer took their prana?

Several variants of mythological vampyres arise from or are influenced by the incremental degradation of human flesh engendered after death– for example, the existence of necrophages that glow like fireflies brought about a lot of misconceptions. When a series of suspicious and unexplained incidents of the kind(s) considered symptomatic of vampyric activity would occur in close sequence, our ancestors would dig up whichever corpse resulted from the most stigmatized or “suspicious” person amongst the recently dead.

Normal phenomena of corpse decay would have produced fluids around the mouth, which our ancestors would interpret as resulting from the corpse’s blood-drinking habit. A villager stabs the corpse, and the crowd gasps as the deceased emits a hideous moan. Of course, we know today this moan was the sound of the corpse deflating, but our ancestors were not so enlightened. What if a vampyric witch were amongst our ancestors’ midst? The villagers just keep checking the local burial place for moans or luminescence. As the uninitiated conjure wild stories of the time they survived the perfidies of the undead, the heir to a hidden generational Craft or the elected worshiper of some darksome divinity continues her witchcraft unsuspected.

Do you know how S. Conolly, the magickian who coined the term “Demonolatry,” came to venerate the Devil? Probably not, considering how many learned Occultists still think she’s man. According to one of the entries to her YouTube channel (OFS Adrianna), Stephany Reisner Conolly once prayed to Satan in childlike ignorance after the Abrahamic deity failed to answer her prayers by helping her find her toy. Satan obliged the girl, terrifying her. This experience stuck with Conolly, and eventually, it got her thinking, and boom, one of the most influential black magickians in the West was born.

It wouldn’t take a generational witchcraft tradition to make one of our ancestors take up vampyrism and the Craft. Sometimes, it takes as little as a single action born of childhood naivety to create a lifetime adherent to the Infernal Divine, as we see with S. Conolly. The guiding spirits of hidden historical witches could have instructed their adherent in the practice of vampyrism, and would have been particularly inclined to do so if their adherent was a born vampyre. Perhaps another vampyre is born when an underground witch asks her guiding spirits about the local stories of blood-drinking corpses.

According to The Psychic Vampire Codex by Michelle Bellenger, if a born vampyre goes too long without feeding, she’ll astrally project in her sleep and drink a bitch. The vampyre might not remember the act– especially if she’s uninitiated, but the victim often experiences something pretty jarring– a vivid nightmare in the least.

Persons born with the vampyric attribute of soul are subconsciously inclined to engage in various behavior-traits to regularly enable involuntarily vampyric nourishment. Circumstances wherein the uninitiated vampyres amongst our ancestors couldn’t pursue mundane methods of subconscious vampyrism would result in their astral double predating upon someone else in the community. This would have engendered more of the folktales that conceptualized what we call mythological vampyres, and the presence of myths about vampyres in a given community, many of which myths originate from predatory spirits, make it more likely for a local witch to take up vampyrism.

If a vampyre wears silver, it’s very, very difficult for them to feed (copper does the opposite). Even today, self-identified born vampyres who wear silver all the time can think that they just naturally suck at feeding on distant victims for years, even if they have multiple other vampyres to talk to it about in person.

All it would have taken is to start vivid and widely attested vampyre myths in a particular community is one uninitiated vampyre with a silver piece of sentimentally-valuable jewelry– her times of accidental energetic self-starvation would engender regular instances of preternatural attack that would spread amongst the locals. Perhaps a witch hidden amongst the crowd takes interest in the stories, and if she’s the heir to a generational tradition of witchcraft, vampyrism could become a family tradition, or at least part of what the generational heirs are taught such that some become vampyres and others do not. Shit, the Christians would blame the vampyric attacks on the Infernal Divine the same way they do with poltergeists.

The conclusion to be drawn from this essay should be simple: vampyrism is not a trend. It’s one of the most legendary and long-lived forms of magick and paranormal activity there is. When a practitioner of psychic vampyrism self-identifies as a vampyre, they aren’t roleplaying: they’re drawing the inevitable conclusion that they are the very type of sorcerer which has terrified humanity for ages in its predatory and uninitiated instantiations. The legends come from us. It’s not the other way around.

This is something that the modern vampyric community has forgotten in its unyielding pursuit of self-humiliation. The Gotham Halo, being a vampyric community native to New York, borrows its organizational structure from a computer game and integrates the worst company it can as if it were their aim to degrade the name of vampyrism as thoroughly as possible.

The Gotham Halo was founded by legitimate Occultists, many if not most of whom venerate and commune with the Undead Gods. Vampyres who aren’t in one of the Occult lodges most popular in the vampyric community will often pretend to be. The first groups to self-identify as vampyres were Post-Satanic magickal lodges dedicated to the pursuit of magickal immortality. But the vampyric community has strayed from what makes it commendable. They’ve made their Occult movement synonymous with the fandom of a video game. They’ve lumped a magickal paradigm in with a pseudoscientific health problem. And, worst of all, they’ve completely forsaken the legitimacy of who they are by blending vampyres with the worst group they could: otherkin.

Among the vampyric community are persons who identify as medical sanguine vampyres. Rather than viewing the consumption of blood as a good way to acquire exogenous human prana, “medsangs” believe they have an undiscovered clinical affliction which necessitates the consumption of human blood.

Now, let’s say the medsangs are right. Let’s say they do need human blood– for all I know, they really do. Debunking pseudoscience is not what my blog is about, and frankly, I wouldn’t tell someone that they’re making something like that up on principle alone. With that said, Medsangs have lumped what they say is a clinical disease in desperate need of scientific research together with a magickal paradigm and a videogame fandom. If they aren’t full of shit, they have made the worst decision they possibly could.

So what the fuck does a Christian who self-medicates with human blood have in common with a vampyric magickian? How can those two demographics even stand being around one another in the first place? The answer is fashion, roleplay, and BDSM.

But the worst is the otherkin. While the existence of transpeople has been proven with neurology (and only lost its perceived credibility because of sociology), otherkin think that their self-identification with animals is somehow justified by this science. While transwomen just want to live like any other women, otherkin have no intention whatsoever of going back to the wild they claim they belong to. If otherkin weren’t full of shit, I wouldn’t know what otherkin were. They’d be doing animal shit and I’d confuse them for feral children or something. Instead, they’ve sought refuge in a world of self-medication and roleplaying.

Let’s say medsangs and otherkin both exist: an unclassified clinical affliction and the world’s smallest minority are now bound to each other, and all hope for either demographic to be scientifically researched like they should be is lost. The scientific community has condemned the New Age which the medsangs and otherkin have lumped themselves in with. The most embarrassing part is that the existence of movie franchises like Underworld has legitimately put the otherkin and vampyres at odds with one another due to the roleplay element. As long as the vampyric community exists the way it does, everyone involved with it is doomed.

A Ritual to Qalilitu

{This is my ritual to Qalilitu, a high-ranking archdemoness of the Qliphothic Sphere of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith). Qalilitu, whom I have elected as my Matron Demoness, was originally recorded by Daemon Barzai in an anthology called Qliphoth Opus III by Black Tower Publishing. Since Qalilitu is my Matron Demoness, I owe incredible thanks to Daemon Barzai, with whom I have no affiliation. Persons unacquainted with this demoness may Google “V.K. Jehannum Qalilitu” to find my article about her, which article includes original magickal chants and a sigil.

This rite to Qalilitu is perfect for a curse, exorcism, empowerment of the psychic senses, or object consecration. The witch is required to specify her own requests. One may use this ritual, for example, to satisfy the three of the following requests: (i) strengthening the psychic senses, (ii) improving the astral double’s ability to shapeshift or teaching it to shapeshift into a specific form Qalilitu specializes in, (iii) strengthening the astral double for astral combat, (iv) strengthening the evil eye and/or the aptitude for glamour magick, (v) to strengthen the aptitude for psychic vampyrism (this includes the ability to take other people’s energy, personal magnetism, and the ability to digest/break down foreign prana/chi), (vi) holistically increasing magickal powers, (vii) increasing the aptitude for death magick and/or necromancy, and (viii) strengthening divinatory abilities.

Like many of my rituals, my rite to Qalilitu is composed entirely of voces magicae or barbarous tongues. This includes the vibration of magickal names, consecrated Latin chants, and the use of Enochian script. Like the rest of my rituals, this rite is designed to generate significant power without the use of magickal equipment, candles, sigils, incense, etc. While such material accompaniments are wonderful and may/should be implemented at the prerogative of the celebrant, this ritual can be performed without them. Phrases in italics are to be chanted and names in bold are to be vibrated. Translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets and explanations appear in parentheses. If you struggle with the pronunciation, simply pronounce your best guest and know that this is entirely sufficient. It is far more important to be confident in your performance of the rite than it is to pronounce every word correctly}

The Best Approach to Soft Polytheism

My causal, human mind wants Satan to be the same entity as Loki and Ahriman because of how simple the universe would be if that were true. Believing this misconception would give me a sensation of understanding that makes me more comfortable in my relationship with the Numinous*. There are distinct similarities, archetypally speaking, between these divinities, and concluding that they are all the same would relieve me of the feeling of ambiguity that makes me more hesitant to pursue a relationship with those divinities than I would be if I were certain of their identities.

*”The Numinous” is a synonym for “the Divine” with specific philosophical connotations. The concept of the Numinous, coined by Rudolf Otto, is central to my philosophy, as well as to the philosophies of Mircea Eliade and David Myatt, who is also known as Stephen Leather and Anton Long. Anton Long’s take on this concept is the one most influential to me. You do not need to understand the philosophical concept of the Numinous to understand my writings, you just need to understand that “the Numinous” is a synonym for “the Divine” but never a synonym for “the Divine All.”

Many black magickians begin to question their sanity as they are forced to confront, through gnosis, hidden truths about reality. I have never questioned mine, and I would urge you not to question yours. It will always be possible to accomplish more with magick than we are capable of believing is possible. There are always truths about the Numinous that we will never be able to accept or understand. Our guiding spirits and True Will determine how much gnosis we are to be burdened with. There is certain knowledge we need to have to transcend mortality and actualize our True Will, and we are going to receive that knowledge if we are willing to work for it, but there will always be truth we cannot handle, and that will be withheld from us by our guiding spirits and our own reasoning process. All of us will live in the dark until the day we fucking die.

The demons who guide you, despite being legitimately invested in your acquisition of gnosis, will lie to your face. Forever. This is why it is so difficult to accurately identify one given spirit with similar entities from other religious paradigms. When you ask your guiding spirits whether or not Satan and Ahriman are one and the same, you are like a child asking your parents if Santa is real. Frankly, your parents are more concerned with what you want for Christmas, and the child will still have the mind of a child regardless of the answer they give him.

In general, ascertaining whether or not two entities are one requires two or more of three things: (i) thorough research, (ii) personal gnosis or coven gnosis, and (iii) the personal or coven gnosis of witches who are external to your in-person magickal group (online acquaintances). It is optimal for coven gnosis or personal gnosis to be the first source you pursue so that you don’t have preconceptions cloud your gnosis. There will be occasions where the circumstances allow for completely accurate conclusions to be drawn in such matters without the two-source-minimum guideline I just provided– it’s just a guideline.

I used the two-source minimum rule to find out that Davcina, a goddess venerated in Hebdomadry (the paradigm of the ONA), was the same entity as the ancient goddesses Damkina/Damgalnunna/Ninmah/Ninhursag. It was in a manuscript by +o+ (the Temple of THEM) where I got the idea that Davcina could be Damkina. I didn’t bother with trying to figure out whether or not +o+ was right about that– I already doubted +o+’s ability to correctly identify the divinities of Hebdomadry with deities from older polytheisms for a reason (they were usually right, but sometimes they weren’t). Instead, I asked Qalilitu, my matron demoness, about Davcina. I channeled large amounts of information about what Davcina’s abilities and attributes were. When I later started researching Damkina, I found that the descriptions of that Sumerian goddess matched both the descriptions of Davcina in Hebdomadry as well as my personal gnosis about her.

So, I decided to perform an experiment. I was still in the ONA at this point, so I had a bunch of Niners seek personal gnosis about whether or not Davcina was the same entity as Damkina, as well as whether Damkina and Davcina were the same entity as Damgalnunna and Ninhursag. My gnosis was largely confirmed– these four entities were the same goddess, but they were different aspects of that goddess. These different aspects would act independently of one another, even to the extent of occupying different ranks in the hierarchies of the gods.

You’re probably wondering why the fuck I was so cautious. I had channeled personal gnosis that confirmed the postulations of an authority in Hebdomadry, and not only that, I had had the accuracy of my personal gnosis confirmed by later research about Damkina. Why was I so paranoid that I felt the need to correspond with other practitioners? Well, let’s talk about Ahriman, and I’ll tell you how I figured out the he was a separate entity from Satan.

Ahriman is a devil from an ancient paradigm of absolute black-and-white duotheism known as Zoroastrianism, which religion is named for its founder, a spiritual teacher named Zoroaster or Zarathustra. In Zoroastrianism, Ahriman is not simply the leader of the evil spirits called daevas or dews. He is the sentient hypostasis of Druj itself.

Druj, a philosophical concept in Zoroastrianism, is linguistically translated to the English words “falsehood,” “evil,” and “destruction.” It’s a metaphysical force which struggles against the force of Asha, and the two linguistic roots for the word Druj come from words meaning “below” and “to blacken.”

The daevas were simply the various divinities of neighboring polytheisms– “daeva” is variously translated as “wrong god,” “false god,” and “god that is to be rejected.” The word “devas” is used in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism in reference to divine beings and/or gods (albeit in somewhat different ways). The worship of daevas was believed to inadvertently engender the furtherance of Druj, as did the practice of Yatuik Dinoh (witchcraft), for the daevas sought the increase of chaos, deception, and turmoil.

Progressions of Zoroastrian doctrine came to redefine the daevas as personifications of immoral traits. The six arch-daevas personified the six foremost sinful behaviors, just like the two demonological classifications of Peter Binsfield and The Lanterne of Light attributed seven demons to the seven deadly sins. The six arch-daevas struggled against the six “divine sparks” which equate to archangels in Zoroastrianism. Among the daevas was Aeshma-Daeva, the dew/daeva of wrath often identified with Asmodeus in Abrahamic demonology. He’s going to come up later, as will the arch-daeva Indar and the daevic bride of Ahriman known variously as Az, Jeh, Jehu, and Jahi.

Needless to say, Druj is a feminine noun (Asha is neuter). The name “Jehu” translates to “Whore,” and menstruation came about when Az-Jehu convinced Ahriman to engender great evil. Adherents to polytheism worshiped devils in disguise, and of course, most artistic representations of Jesus take influence from the iconography of Zoroaster. You get the idea.

The Coven of the Second Torch, which I led, originated with only myself and two incredibly gifted neophytes whom I refer to in writing as Terror and Chase. Unlike me, Chase and Terror had the gift of mediumship, so they would regularly become vessels for consensual possession by the spirits which Hecate has designated as our teachers. We’d had three Hecatean spirit guides assigned to us, and their names are to never be published. The daimon (I only use the word ‘daimon’ to refer to the non-deity spirits of Greek and Roman polytheism) assigned to me was a hermaphroditic empousa– a powerful, young emissary of Hecate full of vitality. The daimon assigned to Chase was a male lamia– a daimon once banished to wander eternity before Hecate suddenly freed him so that he could become one of our guides. Both of these spirits came to answer to the archdaimon, a male strigae, who was assigned to Terror– the youngest member of the coven.

When the archdaimonic strigae possessed Terror, he would become limited to Terror’s vocabulary if he spoke to me in English. In one of our later seances, the archstrigae told me that while he did not know where he came from, he did know that the strigiai (the vampyric owl-daimones among Hecate’s nocturnal procession) were created by Hecate and “the Winged God” via asexual reproduction.

He looked at me, doubting that I would know which deity he was referring to. I had to guess, and I guessed right (Hermes). The archdaimon would remember the name Hermes and be able to say the name Hermes until the possession seance ended, at which point the daimon would leave the vessel and Terror would become conscious with no memory of the seance. Terror still wouldn’t know who Hermes was when he awakened. While the strigae still knows who Hermes is and can still give excellent insights into the nature and history of Hermes, he didn’t know the name Hermes when he was in Terror’s body. These are the mechanics of possession.

So, I now had coven gnosis about the origin of strigiai. Could I rely on it? I would later go on to read the Greek Magickal Papyrus and learn that Hermekate was a codified metagod used in ancient sorcery– a union of Hermes and Hekate comparable to Lidagon (the union of Darkat and Dagon) and Hermaphrodite.

One night, the Coven of the Second Torch invited two non-initiates to a casual hang-out. It was a casual affair, but after two of Chase and I’s coworkers overheard us talking on shift and asked to join the coven, we were getting greedy. Most witches in their twenties can’t achieve an evocation, but the three of us could teach anyone to do it, and no one who endeavored ritual with us ever doubted that what we did was real. We were naive– just because we could show people that magick was real didn’t mean they would be brave enough to pursue initiation, and just because someone performed a ritual with us that permanently improved their life didn’t mean that they would share our drive for attainment. Many who came to us would perform an evocation with us if they’d been contacted by the spirits of Satan (or in this case, it was the spirits of Tezcatlipoca and Tlazolteotl which one of the non-initiates had had an experience with), and even if they weren’t able to see and communicate with what we summoned like we could, they would get results (and sometimes knowledge) that would benefit them forever, and then they would decide within days that our path was too… much. Our role in their lives was to make them understand the revelations and experiences they had received before they came to us. We struggled to learn the lesson that experience of the Numinous does not prove that one is destined for the Craft.

Terror entered total possession while Chase was taking a nap, which was difficult for the non-initiates to watch. Despite the fact that we were gifted, possession was still new to us, so the way we act to give the spirits hold of us is more dramatic than it is for some. One of the non-initiates was quiet, but the other kept asking me if I could say for certain that what was going on was safe– and he kept asking.

“Are you sure he’s okay?”

“It’s fine,” I said. “He does this all the time. We all do. I can’t do it like he and Chase can, but we all love it.”

The possession took hold and I started speaking with the spirit. The non-initiate who’d expressed his worries to me was quiet while the other kept asking questions to see how the archdaimon would answer. The boy believed that what was happening was real, but he was skeptical about the spirit itself. He asked how the world was created, how it would end, and the daimon answered. The answers were consistently smarter than anything that Terror and Chase could come up with together, they provided incredible wisdom, and they knew impossible things. Non-initiates who witnessed our seances were always taken aback by that, especially this querent.

The other non-initiate looked up and nervously broke his silence. “Terror’s a really good friend of mine,” he said. “I know a human can’t do much, but if you hurt him, I will do everything I can to kill you.”

The archdaimon put his hand on the man’s shoulders. “I know that,” he said. “That’s why I consider you a friend.”

The non-initiate was shocked, and he gradually started to trust the strigae and our Craft. As the conversation progressed, I decided to ask the strigae which spirit our coven should evoke later that night when the non-initiates were gone.

“The Prince of Persia,” said the archdaimon through the possessed body of Terror.

This very much confused the non-initiates. “The movie?” One of them asked.

“That’s a nickname,” the daimon said. “V.K. will know who I mean.”

I thought for a second and then made a guess. “Asmodeus?”

The strigae nodded with the vessel’s head. “Yes, Asmodeus!” he answered. “He kicked Raphael’s ass once, but the Bible and lied about it.” He blinked. “Well, shit, that wasn’t the Bible… Uh, anyway, you can basically ask Asmodeus for any kind of strength that you want.”

I’m paraphrasing the spirit’s responses about as accurately as I can. This is how I found out that Aeshma-Daeva, the evil spirit of Persian religion (Zoroastrianism) was the same entity as Asmodeus. I thought for a moment. “Is Ahriman the same being as Satan?” I asked.

The spirit said yes, but the vessel’s facial expression confused me. Like he’d become unhappy about something, or disappointed in some way, and he’d just been smiling when he spoke of Asmodeus.

I remembered Robert Fraize’s claim that Tiamat and Satan are the same entity. I’d never believed that was true, but if Ahriman and Satan really were the same, maybe this whole soft polytheism thing holds more water than I thought it did. Before I started leading a coven, I wasn’t even sure whether or not Satan wasn’t just part of the mind like so many thinkers said. We were just getting started, and things were happening so quickly.

“Is Tiamat the same as Satan too?” I asked.

“Yes,” the archstrigae said again, still with that look on the vessel’s face.

I thought for a moment, trying to reconcile these facts (lies) with what I already knew.

“Shouldn’t Satan be the same as Absu instead?” I asked. “Absu’s male, Tiamat should probably be Lilith, right?”

“Oh yeah,” said the archdaimon. “You’re right.”

Something was up. The archdaimon was knowledgeable of every deity I’d asked it about despite being consistently limited by Terror’s vocabulary. The lamia that was assigned to Chase wasn’t familiar with most of the deities that modern black magickians work with, but the archstrigai always gave reliable insights about deities that Terror had never heard of. He was even familiar with the difference between the Baphomet of the ONA and the Baphomet of Eliphas Levi– he gave me great insights about the latter (we’ll get back to that). He gave me advice about how to summon the ONA’s Baphomet that was completely unlike anything the ONA had advised, and I was pleasantly surprised when I later read a piece of that same advice in Evoking Eternity by E.A. Koetting.

Besides, the spirit went from not being able to name Asmodeus despite knowing the that the demon had originated in Persian religion to knowing the truth behind the myth of the fight between Asmodeus and Raphael. He was not only familiar with that myth, he was even clearly familiar with the existence of the apocryphal Book of Tobit from which the myth originated. He had demonstrated that he knew the Book of Tobit was not included in the Bible despite being incapable of producing the name of the text with Terror’s lips (I had to Google it myself). The whole thing was fucking amazing. Something like confusing Tiamat and Absu with one another wasn’t like him.

When the strigae left Terror’s body, I told him that we were supposed to summon Asmodeus as he recovered from grogginess (which only took a moment). Terror’s immediate response was “Who the fuck is Asmodeus?”

“The Prince of Persia,” I said.

After the ritual to Asmodeus, I never doubted that Aeshma-Daeva and Asmodeus were the same being. But some reason, I didn’t feel confident that Ahriman was really Satan. I trusted the strigae completely– the daimones had loved us since we were little kids, and the strigae even had strong allegiances with the Infernal Divine (Hecate is very much aligned with Satan). Weeks later, during another seance, Chase entered total possession with his new patron demon: Niantiel, the ruler of one of the pathways in the Qliphoth.

Chase had been asleep when we gave the non-initiates our first seance, and Terror wasn’t present for this one. Plus, Niantiel was unrelated to the group of daimones which Hecate had sent to guide us. Like Terror, Chase was unfamiliar with Zoroastrianism and Ahriman. It was the perfect opportunity, and Niantiel told me that Satan and Ahriman, while similar, were not the same entity.

This taught me two important things. First, just because your spirits tell you that one entity is the same as another doesn’t mean you can believe it. Even if you channel excellent gnosis and your spirits really are invested in your success doesn’t mean your personal gnosis or coven gnosis on matters like these will be accurate. You can do everything right when you look for these answers, but it still won’t matter. Seeking these answers is almost a lost cause in and of itself. The fact that Asmodeus is Aeshma-Daeva would suggest that Ahriman is Satan, and yet Ahriman and Satan are separate. Figuring out whether one deity is the same as another is really that fucking complicated, so it’s no wonder the spirits don’t care to tell us the truth and let us carry our misconceptions. That’s why there are Satanists who misidentify Satan with so many other gods. Some say Satan was Tiamat, some say he was Marduk, and others say he was Enki– and those are just the entities that people misidentify Satan with in one religion (Mespotamian polytheism). The spirits allow us to make these misidentifications because the truth of such matters really is that close to being a lost cause.

And it gets worse. Ahriman is not Satan, but Aeshma-Daeva is Asmodeus, so what about Az-Jehu? Az is the same entity as one spirit in Abrahamic religion– take a guess who. Michael W. Ford identifies Az with Lilith, which makes sense, but he goes on to identify the both of them with Kali, which is more of a stretch, and he also identifies Ahriman with Satan, which we know is wrong. In the Choronzon edition of The Book of the Witch Moon, Ford identifies Cain with Pan.

Ford deserves a lot of fucking respect, and I was wrong not to show him that respect in the past. But really think about this. Ford identifies Cain with Pan in writing. The spirits are right not to trust our judgment about matters like this.

So, are you ready for the answer? Az-Jehu is the same entity as Semyaza, the male leader of the Grigori (the fallen angels called the Watchers). I’m completely confident about that, however ludicrous that sounds. So now, I’m going to give a list of the deity=deity conclusions I’ve drawn

Satan, Leviathan, Lucifer, and Azazel are all aspects of the same entity. In Qabbalah, the highest aspect of the Devil (which lies beyond even the entirety of the Qliphoth) is referred to as Samael, not to be confused with the angel named Samael or the Qlipha named Samael. So I’ll put it like this: Lucifer and Satan are different aspects of Samael which operate independently from one another the same way that Christians believe Jesus, Jehovah, and the Holy Spirit operate (Note: Jesus was just a human who became an overrated immortal charlatan that New Agers are wasting their time with ascended master). Some practitioners of demon magick like E.A. Koetting and Adam Percipio consider Satan and Lucifer to be separate entities, and they’re only kind of right. When they call on Lucifer, regardless of believing him to have been a Roman god or whatever, they are still manifesting that same aspect of Samael. The counterintuitive claim made by a YouTuber called “The Serpent’s Key” that Paimon is also an aspect of Samael turned out to be true, but Diane Vera’s belief that Belial is an aspect of Satan is wrong (which is lame, cuz I believed her).

Amaymon is not the same entity as Mammon.

Machaloth is not the same entity as Magoth.

Astaroth is the same entity as Astarte, Inanna, Ishtar, Isis, and Attar. However, those goddesses are different aspects of one deity, possibly independent aspects at that– just like Satan and Lucifer.

Abaddon/Apollyon is the same entity as Apollo, the Olympian god of the Sun– that’s something I know for certain. Qalilitu, my matron demoness, told me that Apollo and Abaddon are not independent aspects. Sauroctonos, one of the entities the ONA venerates, is the same entity as Apollo (if you Google Sauroctonos you’ll wind up on Apollo’s Wikipedia page). However, when Apollo is contacted via Hebdomadry, he manifests in a very unusual way. I have rituals on my website to Lycoctonos/Lyceus (Apollo’s manifestation as a wolf) and Sauroctonos (Apollo’s manifestation when accessed through Hebdomadry). Only work with Sauroctonos if you’re guiding spirits tell you to do so because it’s weird as fuck. I was told to perform a certain number of invocations to Sauroctonos and then stop. When I did it one more time than I was told to, Sauroctonos castigated me for it. It was very useful, but I’ll probably never work with that manifestation of Abaddon/Apollo again. One of the leading voices in the ONA proclaimed that Abaddon was Abatu based on no evidence whatsoever, and Qalilitu told me they were wrong.

Mephistophiles is the same entity as Ophiel, the Olympic spirit of Mercury. Mephistophiles has nothing to do with Mephitis and he is probably not an aspect of Samael.

Andras is the Zoroastrian daeva Indar and the Hindu deva Indra.

Murmur is the same entity Mormo, the son of Hecate.

Alex Jones is the same entity as Bill Hicks (kidding).

Camio/Caym is the highest aspect of Cain/Qayin. Tubal-Qayin is another aspect of Qayin, which aspect appears to have came into being by some form of initiatory self-transformation he enacted. He isn’t the same as Pan though.

Azanigin, Az-Jehu, and Semyaza are all the same entity. I’ll have to tell you how I figured that out some time, because it’s a long story. Azael, Azazel, and Semyaza are all separate entities from one another, and Azazel and Azrael are not the same.

The goddess which the ONA venerates by the name Baphomet is the planetary spirit of the planet Earth (and she’s really great to work with). She is not the same as Lilith, and she has nothing to do with Bastet regardless of what the leading voices in the ONA say. The etymology and history given for Baphomet in ONA literature is completely made up, and they have a devious reason for making it up.

Atazoth of Hebdomadry is the same entity as Azathoth. In fact, Anton Long stole his teachings about Atazoth from Kenneth Grant’s teachings about Azathoth (he also stole his teachings about Azanigin from Grant’s teachings on Aza, a Gnostic demoness who originated from Az-Jehu).

Budsturga is not the same as Durga.

Darkat is not the same as Lilith.

Satanchia (also called Put Satanachia) is the same as Chia.

Lilith, Eisheth Zenunim, and Na’amah are all separate entities from one another.

But here’s the one you’ve been waiting for: Santa isn’t real. And neither is Vindex.

Ritual to Machaloth

{This ritual calls upon Machaloth/Mahlat to fulfill a specified request(s). One of the major sources of the rite’s power is name vibration: two seven-name vibration lists appear in the ritual. While half of the names in these vibration lists are clearly just variations of Machaloth’s name, the other half are invented magickal names which can be used to refer to and vibrated to call upon any demon. The magickal phrase which is presented in italics is to be chanted, i.e. recited in a slow and rhythmic way. Translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets, and explanations appear in parentheses. My rituals focus heavily upon magickal chants and words of power so that they are able to generate large amounts of power even in the absence of ceremonial equipment, incense, etc. If witchcraft materials are available to the celebrant, they may (and should) be incorporated however she deems fit}

Death, Initiation, and Unrelated Spiritual Advice

Death symbolism is common in rites and visions of initiation. The baptism of Christian tradition, for example, according to the book of Romans, signifies the burial of Christ.

Symbols of death are of great use in rites of initiation– plastic Halloween skulls objectively empower initiation rites via symmetry magick– via symbolism. Visions of being physically torn apart by spirits symbolize initiation– the death or destruction of what you are as a precursor to magickal rebirth.

Unrelated: Do not neglect chakra work in magick– we all do it from time to time. There is no such thing as a fully open chakra– there is always progress to make. If you do not work with the chakras, apply this lesson in a more general sense: do not neglect the fundamental exercises of your practice. Spiritual development is not a straight upwards line– we all backtrack from time to time. Don’t be ashamed of that and do what you can to not let it happen. On the bright side, you’ll find that the road back up is much quicker than it was the last time.

Also Unrelated: Don’t compare yourself to other magickians. Spiritual competence is a deeply multifaceted thing. Just because someone exceeds you in one area doesn’t mean they’re better than you are and that you should feel ashamed: in means you can teach one another what the other lacks. Besides, if they exceed you, they’re still going to backtrack eventually, and when that happens, you’ll be helping them catch up.

Also Unrelated: According to Professor Jordan Peterson, the two personality traits which are shown to accumulate the most success in life are the I.Q. level and a trait called conscientiousness– conscientiousness is a combination of the traits of conscientiousness and orderliness. If your intent in demon magick is to improve yourself to maximize personal agency and your quality of personhood, these are the traits which you should seek to cultivate.

Also Unrelated: The crystal called phrenite is one of the most useful stones in magick and spirit work. Use it for everything. One of the greatest black magickians I ever met personally recommended it to me. I’m not big on crystal magick, but I have nothing but praise for phrenite.

Also Unrelated: Spiritual mentors and group affiliations come and go. Just because your mentor thinks you’re the one he’s been looking for doesn’t mean he’s meant to be in your life forever, or even for more than a short period of time. Just because your guiding spirits guided you to a group doesn’t mean you’re meant to stay there. Just because your mentor’s psychic faculties allow her to give you incredible insights and guidance in your spiritual pursuits doesn’t mean he can tell you how to live with accuracy. Don’t fucking move to another state for these people. They’re here to play a specific role in your path, and often times for us black magickians, you could’ve never gotten where you are without them, but they still aren’t meant to be in your life for long. Get what you need and move past them, but always show them the respect they deserve.

Also unrelated: my roommate just bought a pendulum with an obsidian gemstone depending from the chain. He handed the pendulum to me, and I asked his pendulum whether there was any spiritual advantage to using an actual pendulum instead of the pair of headphones I normally use for pendulum divination. I asked twice and got the same answer both times. I won’t be buying a pendulum.

Tunnels of Set: Working with the Qliphothic Armies

Just as every pathway between the Qliphothic spheres has its own governing archdemon, there is an order or species of demon attributed to each of the Tunnels of Set. When these “Qliphothic armies” are summoned, a handful of similar-looking spirits will manifest. The 218 Current has adopted and promoted the practice of conjuring these armies as singular entities known as metagods (possibly metaspirits in this case), the intent of the celebrant will likely determine the result. This article will list the names of the “Qliphothic armies” along with their magickal specialties and unique channeled “enns” or summoning chants provided for each. The article will not be listing which army corresponds to which tunnel, or what the esoteric correspondences (tarot, zodiac, etc.) for these armies are, however, the list of sources at the article’s end will label which sources provide that information. I had produced and consecrated original sigils for each species (two for Abiriron by accident)– they’re simple and poorly drawn, but so were the sigils in Naos and nobody gave a fuck. They work.

In addition to the channeled summoning chants, I have a few other words of power and chants that are useful in evoking a Qliphothic army:
(i) The magickal formula “Kohot Ha-Qliphoth, Beni Sitra Ahra, Aeonifer, ____________, Artorzozam” can be used to summon any Qliphothic army. The first two phrases translate to “Force of the Qliphoth, Children of the Other Side.” A name of the Qliphothic army is to be placed in the blank
(ii) My invented magickal names Aeonifer, Khaosophoros, Semolshedim, Diabalachara, Ala-Mashavah, Xulogos, and Goessabbim can be used as “god names” of any Qliphothic army (as well as of any other demon or group of demons)
(iii) My word of power Artorzozam serves to call forth whichever demon or group of demons is specified by the celebrant’s intent.

The Goetikon: Working with the Goetic Metagod

Update: Never summon the Goetikon for violent purposes other than self-defense. Even justified revenge is a huge no-no with this entity.

A metagod is a unified consciousness consisting of two or more independently extant deities. Amun-Ra, Lidagon, Hermaphrodite, Hermanubis, etc. are all examples of metagods, and a metagod really is two actual spirits merging together, kinda like the characters in Dragon Ball Z, but hopefully without the dance. The conjuration of metagods was a common magickal practice and is delineated all throughout the Graeco-Egyptian Papyri.

The most influential metagod in modern demon magick is Chavajoth, a metagod composed of the Qliphoth’s eleven reigning deities. While these eleven gods do manifest as eleven separate entities, they also occasionally manifest as a singular divinity which appears (to me) as an eleven-headed black dragon. Another prominent example of metagods in demon magick was provided by the author of Liber Sitra Ahra in his descriptions of the “demonic armies” of the Qliphoth. A “demonic army” is a collective of demons, which collective consists of members with uniform or appearingly uniform faculties and appearance, which is particular to a Tunnel of Set (a pathway between two Qliphothic spheres). Before Liber Sitra Ahra, every Demonologist to date had described the demonic armies as multitudes of demons. Whenever we called forth a demonic army, we’d get two or more identities that looked alike. But the author of Liber Sitra Ahra witnessed the Qliphothic armies appearing as singular deities– metagods in the forms of massive black dragons.

Someone I used to know recounted to me a time when the 72 demons of the Ars Goetia appeared to him as a single black dragon. You likely already know that the appearance of a demon is a metaphor for its faculties. In my experience, the only demons (or demonic metagods) who appear as quadruped black dragons are the most transcendent infernal deities. Examples include Satan, Chavajoth, and of course, the metagod of the Goetia. At its core, the Goetikon is essentially formless, so the magickian approaching it should not limit it, by way of preconception, to any given form.

The experience of the person who told me about the Goetikon was backed up by my personal gnosis and experience as well as gnosis channeled by a third party from Sepheranz. I’m more than experienced enough not to need confirmation that this entity is not an egregore, but I say this for the audience.

The Nature of the Goetikon

The Goetikon is far more powerful than Chavajoth for obvious reasons. There are three demons which are obviously in both Chavajoth and the Goetikon– Astaroth, Asmodeus, and Bael. Since my gnosis and that of a former friend both confirm Mark Allan Smith’s gnosis that Belial and Baelzebuth are the entity, I would prefer to say that four demons that I know of are in both metagods.

Chavajoth, the Goetikon, and all 80 individual demons could appear on the same football field separately. In this scenario, Astaroth, for example, would be perceiving the field from all three perspectives and processing them with a single mind. I have evoked the Goetikon to the point of visible manifestation. I got it to manifest pretty clearly too– it was closer to physical than most of the demons I usually summon appear as (I worked with the Goetikon a lot before that). I’ve invoked it a few times, which was quite a trial– as many spirits you invoke will tell you how many more times you are to invoke them, I was instructed by the Goetikon to stop after the fourth invocation.

I have an idol to the Goetikon which does act the same way that my idols to demons usually do, but I think it’s pretty clear that the idol is less effective than my idols for demons usually are because of the size of the entity the idol contains. The ways that I have gotten the Goetikon to manifest would be very difficult for most, but for me, it was easy, if only for my preparations– save for the invocations.

Samael is the entity who rides upon the Goetikon, Samael being the Qabalistic name for the aspect of the metagod I call the Devil who resides beyond the Qliphoth alongside Ustrina and Hecate. The Goetikon is a violent, wrathful, destructive, and invincible creature. He collaborates and conspires at length with Chavajoth.

The Goetikon can help one self-initiate through all 10 Qliphothic spheres as well as Da’ath. When it comes to magickal violence, the Goetikon should only be called upon to cause harm for the purposes of immediate magickal self-defense and the protection of others from serious upcoming threats– but only call it for the second purpose with confirmation that it will work. The second purpose does not need to remove magickal threats specifically. Even calling the Goetikon for justified retaliation or some kind of vigilante-style execration is a horrible idea with bad consequences. It is unclear to me whether or not these consequences are caused deliberately by the Goetikon or whether they are the result of damage to the psyche, some combination of both, or neither. Either way, the least severe potential consequence which was listed was uncontrollable self-mutilation.

Working with the Goetikon for self-empowerment is wonderful. Vibrating the secret name of the universe for self-empowerment is wonderful. Doing both in one ritual will create an atmosphere you can’t stomach. A colleague of mine and I would both describe it as like having a physical tentacle move in your stomach.

Protecting people is one of the Goetikon’s primary functions, but it only does so when asked to. Below you will find two sigils. I created and consecrated the first sigil and, assuming that the Goetikon would accept any other sigil created for it, requested a better sigil be designed by my audience.  Until 4/26/18, the sigil my friends designed was only half as powerful as the one I drew, but the Goetikon has linked the three symbols (three including the artistic version of the second sigil) together, such that they are all, energetically speaking, the same sigil after I offered some incense sticks– dragon’s blood was the most appropriate.

 

IMG_0294Above: My Original Sigil for the Goetikon

The sacred numbers of the Goetikon are 97, 87, 94, 37, 68, 35, and 91.

*The dichotomy between a Right Hand Path and a Left Hand Path originated in heretical denominations of Hinduism, and the terminology came to be borrowed by magickal authorities in the West. Unfortunately, many modern black magickians have pontificated at length about which philosophies and spiritual practices are and are not LHP and polluted the concept of the LHP to an extent at which it’s basically a useless term. Many black magickians claim that worship is an RHP practice, but a brief look at where the LHP actually comes from will show that the LHP has, in truth, always been a path of religious devotion. In my opinion, the LHP-RHP dichotomy has no place in Western religion or magick and I only use the term LHP as a very general, loosely-defined title for black magickal religions in general (it’s basically a convenient slang term to me).

Magickal Chants to the Goetikon

Goetikon + Khaosophoros + Goessabbim + Xulogos + Aeonifer + Semolshedim + Diabalachara + Ala-Mashavah + Rimkaggaggathal + Limkallaggor + Goetikon
This is a name-vibration paragraph which the magickian may vibrate to call forth the Goetikon. All of the names from Khaosophoros to Ala-Mashavah are invented magickal god-names which I have spiritually charged & consecrated such that they may be used as magickal god-names for any demon, any demonic metagod, and any selection of demons. After the last invented magickal name, “Ala-Mashavah,” two of the Goetikon’s secret names which I channeled appear. (Note: channeled secret names should only be used in ritual, never in mundane conversation, and are not to be revealed to the unitiated. These two, however, I have been given permission to post)

Io Khaosophoros-Goetikon
“Hail the Chaos-Bearing Metagod of the Goetia!” I usually recite this magickal phrase when I’m either strarting a robbery or started on, but the chant may be used at any part in the rite.

Io Goetikon Io Ho
Really not very different from the above.

Zobeteuma, Goetikon, Atozephos, Aeonifer
This chant conists of my three invented magickal names for the Goetic metagod and an invented magickal name which can be used to refer to and call upon any demon, group of demons, or demonic metagod.

Salve Zobeteuma-Goetikon
This means “Hail Zobeteuma-Goetikon.” It serves to call upon the Goetikon for any given purpose or working.

Salve Megist Atozephos
“Hail to the Great Atozephos!” Simply calls up/on the Goetikon.

Agios Ischyros Zobeteuma
“Numinous and Mighty is Zobeteuma!”

Amplus Goetikon, Veni
“Mighty Goetikon, Come!”

Salve Aeviternitas Dominator Atozephos
“Hail to the Everlasting Lord Atozephos!”

Liftoach Pandemonium, Et Germinet Goetikon
This translates to “Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth the Goetikon.” It has two simultaneous effects: (i) it calls forth the Goetikon and (ii) it presences Qliphothic energy to create or strengthen a sacred space.

Arcesso Praevalidum Agenti Smola– Invito Zobeteuma
This chant translates to “I Summon the Mighty Emissary of the Left Hand– I Call Zobeteuma!” It’s only useful for evocation.

In Nomine Adamas Ater, Aperiatur Acharayim, Et Germinet, Et Germinet Goetikon
This translates to “In the Name of the Black Diamond, Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth, and Bring Forth the Goetikon.” The “Black Diamond” (Adamas Ater) is the version of the Philosopher’s Stone (i.e. the achievement of the “Great Work” of alchemy that many black magickians call self-deification) which can be achieved via demon magick. This chant has two effects: calling forth the Goetikon, and focusing the mind of the celebrant.

Invoco Goetikon In Nomine Qliphoth
This translates to “I Call to the Goetikon in the Name of the Qliphoth.” It calls forth the Goetikon and drifts the celebrant closer to a trance/gnostic state.

Voco Te Goetikon
This translates to “I Call to the Goetikon.” It calls forth the Goetikon with no additional/simultaneous effect.

Tasa Reme Laris Goetikon
Here we have a demonic enn for the Goetikon. The demonic enns are a mystery to all of us, but I know just enough about them to be confident that this phrase adheres to the basic logical & grammatical rules of a demonic enn. However, while this chant is structurally (linguistically speaking) no different from any other given enn, it’s still not a traditional enn, so I had to have Mephistophiles consecrate it for me.

Liftoach Sitra De-Smola B’Shem Ha-Goetikon
This chant translates to “Open the Sinister Left Side, in the Name of the Goetikon.” This chant calls on the Goetikon to strengthen any rite. It can be simply exclaimed once at any point in the rite.

Goetikon Liftoach Shaari Ha-Qliphoth– Ia Ia Zobeteuma-Atozephos
“Goetikon, Open the Gate to the Qliphoth– Hail, Hail Zobeteuma-Atozephos!” This chant serves to presence Qliphothic energy to build or strengthen a sacred space and program the sacred space to help the celebrant(s) look beyond thepsychic filter, irrational doubt, and normalcy bias– these things will be deteriorated permanatently, albeit not to the extent that they are escaped within the sacred space.

If you are reciting magickal chants to the Goetikon, you will have the best result if you recite the chant a number of times relevant to the Goetikon. Specifically, I would recommend that the above chants be recited 6, 21, 27, 16, or 22 times each– these being sacred numbers of the Goetikon not provided in the list above.
In case this massive lists of chants has not made it easy enough for you to design your own rite to the Goetikon for whatever purpose you like, here is a list of magickal words of power which are useful for demon magick in general:

Agios Octinomos-Drakosophia

The Ritual of Legion

{This ritual summons Lepaca, the Demon of Opening, and works with him to astrally presence a very large number of demons for the purpose of self-empowerment. The witch begins with the opening of the ritual, which opening creates a sacred space by raising Qliphothic energy, summons Lepaca, calls on multiple demons to strengthen the ritual, and then works with Lepaca to evoke multiple Qliphothic demons (in that order). Thereafter, the witch recites a hymn which entreats Chavajoth (the Azerate), the draconic meta-god composed of the 72 demons of the Goetia, the Nine Demonic Divinities of the Dukante Hierarchy, and the 22 archdemons of the Tunnels of Set to empower the witch. Five optional segments follow, and the witch may perform whichever and however many of these she will perform, if any. Lastly, a series of miscellanious and optional demon-summoning chants is provided for the witch to choose from. It is the prerogative of the witch to decide which materials, sigils, equipment, music, etc. she wants to incorporate into her performance of this ritual, if any. Phrases in italics are to be chanted. The name vibration formulas appear in bold with +’s separating each individual vibration. English translations appear in brackets and explanations appear in parentheses. This ritual incorporates magickal formulae and words of power from Modern Demonolatry by S. Conolly, the corpuses of Dragon Rouge, the Order of the Nine Angles, the 218 Current (including Liber Azerate and The Book of Sitra Ahra), The True Red Book of AppinThe Book of Mephisto by Asenath Mason, my original literature, and the literature of Daemon Barzai. This is an advanced ritual, so be prepared}

Meditations on Mephistophiles

This article serves to analyze Chief Duke Mephistophiles, best known in Demonolatry as Mesphito, the Keeper of the Book of Death, through the esotericisms of demonology, Qabbalah, and Greek magick. This is a very deep look into demonology which may not be suitable or helpful for beginners.
We know from grimoires modern and medieval alike that Mephistophiles (often called Mesphito) is a real demon, and a powerful one at that. Well, believe it or not, Doctor Faust was a real person. He was an infamous alchemist, blasphemer, astrologist, magickian, necromancer, and sodomite who once allegedly tricked a local chaplain into rubbing arsenic on his own face. Countless medieval grimoires are attributed to the teachings of Doctor Faust, just like many grimoires are attributed to the teachings of Solomon and Moses.
Faust lived around the time that the printing press was invented, so while we do have stories about his exploits, our sources aren’t entirely reliable, and the fictitious adaptations of his life, both in theater and literature, are abundant.
Faust was the quintessential Renaissance blasphemer. His name was adduced constantly during the religious debates of the time, and he ran into legal trouble rather frequently. He was a magickian who made of himself a sensation, sort of like Aleister Crowley and Anton LaVey. There are even several blatantly spurious legends recorded which purport to originate as anecdotes of the demonstrations of Faust’s power. The following two hyperlinks will take you to Faust’s wikipedia article and my first essay on Mesphito.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Georg_Faust#Historical_Faust
Mephistophiles in Qliphothic Qabbalah

Mesphito is attributed to two of the Qliphoth’s Spheres, namely the third and the fifth. Three multiplied by five gives us 15, the number of the fifteenth tarot card (the Devil).  The fifteenth tarot is attributed to the twenty-sixth pathway* of the Qliphoth, which just so happens to be the pathway which connects the two Qliphas that Mesphito is attributed to. 26 (2 + 6) gives us 8, as do the third and fifth spheres added together (3 + 5). 8 is a number attributed to the planet Mercury and the Philosopher’s Stone, and it’s the number of faces on an octahedron (the Platonic solid attributed to Mercury). An octahedron has eight faces, twelve edges, and six vertices: 8 + 12 + 6 = 26, which is again the number of the path between the Qliphothic spheres which Mesphito is attributed to.

8 and 15 are the two numbers given to us by the two spheres that Mesphito is attributed to, and I have demonstrated that the path between these spheres relates to both of these numbers as well. Multiplied together, 8 & 15 give us 120. 120 is the mystic number of the star and the mystic quality of the number 5, giving us the pentagram, a sign of the Great Work (note: 8 also symbolizes the Great Work). 120 is also the numerical value of the Hebrew letter Samekh when it is spelled out as a Hebrew word (note: it is in Liber Samekh that Crowley delineates the Rite of the Bornless One, an adversary-oriented rite to invoke the Higher Self which was written to precede workings with the demons of the Goetia). Blood is sometimes esoterically interpreted as a sign of the Great Work, and 120 days is the life span of a red blood globule (note: one of Mesphito’s names in the grimoires is Hemostophile).

Now let’s talk about the spheres specifically. First, Mesphito is attributed to Samael and Glasyalabolas, Buer, Adrammelech, and Amon (lesser attribution). Secondly, Mesphito is attributed to Thagirion alongside Claunech, Sorath, Belphagore, Paimon (lesser attribution), Amy, and Merihim.

The light of the Black Sun of Thagirion is the guiding influence which orients the Black Moon of Gamaliel. This is why Mammon, the foremost emissary of Gamaliel, is believed to enact the agendas of Sorath, the true offspring of Thagirion. Samael, the Mercurious Qlipha, is the sphere which imparts the Black Sun’s guidance to Gamaliel.* So, Mesphito is attributed to both this guiding influence of the Black Moon and the medium of its provision.

*This is the same pathway that Marbas and A’ano’nin are attributed to.
**Within Gamaliel dwell Mammon, Lilith, Qalilitu, Verrine, Buer, and Orias.

The Initiatory Force of Mephistophiles

One of the leading authorities of Traditional Demonolatry, S. Conolly (the S. stands for “Stephany,” by the way) has recorded the esoteric meaning of the name Beelzebuth revealed to her by Beelzebuth itself. While the literal translation of the name is “Lord of the Flies,” its esoteric meaning is “Lord of All that Flies.” This is a reference to Beelzebuth’s patronage of aeronautical engineering, meterology, and aerospace engineering sky machines. Mesphito has more than nineteen name variations in the medieval grimories, and we’re going to attempt some esoteric name interpretation.

One of Mesphito’s names in the grimoires is Memostophiles, with Mem being the Hebrew word for water. Mem is the 23rd Hebrew letter, and 23 = 15 + 8 (these are the two numbers given by adding and multiplying the third and fifth Qliphothic spheres). Mem, as a word, means “water,” and the value of the Hebrew phrase “your water,” a phrase denoting god-given sustenance in the Bible, is 120, the number we got by multiplying 15 (3 x 5) and 8 (3 + 5). In the Golden Dawn,*** the stage of initiation attributed to the sphere of Mercury is called “the water grade” in reference to the “nurturing waters of [the Sephira of Mercury]” and the tarot card attributed to Mem is the Hanged Man.

The Hanged Man the card of self-sacrifice. It represents an accomplishment of the Great Work which is misconstrued by the uninitiated as martyrdom. The figure in the tarot card is depicted hanging from the Hebrew letter Tau, which Hebrew letter is considered to have been the Mark of Qayin (Qayin/Cain being the first Ascended Master of the Black Lodge) and is attributed to the thirty-second path of the Qliphoth, basically signifying the start of a new cycle of initiatory demon magick.

***Based on the consistent similarities between the recorded experiences of Niners working with the Tree of Wyrd, practitioners of demon magick working with the Qliphoth, and white magickians working with the Sephiroth, I have concluded that Hod, Samael, and Utarid are all just different approaches to working with the planetary sphere of Mercury

My attribution of Mesphito to the card of self-sacrifice via esoteric name-analysis is actually verified by a synchronicity in psychodynamic therapy. According to Wikipedia, “Psychodynamic therapy uses the idea of a Faustian bargain to explain defence mechanisms, usually rooted in childhood, that sacrifice elements of the self in favor of some form of psychical survival.” (Note: obviously psychodynamic theory uses the metaphor of Faust’s bargain in a negative light).

So, the initiatory influence of Memostophiles is that of an apotheosis misconstrued by outsiders as death. So, when the fictitious legend of Faust concludes with the (perceived) accidental death of the sorcerer, we can infer what really happened. The cause of Faust’s death, having been perceived as coming about due to an accidental result of the explosive gases used in alchemy, is simply the common man’s interpretation of Faust’s achievement of magickal immortality. After all, Memostophiles correlates to the initiatory stage of the Sphere of Mercury, and it just so happens that the alchemical substance attributed to Mercury is explosive gas.

Mephistophiles as a God of Mercury

In The Book of Mephisto, Asenath Mason forwards the notion that Mesphito is a an spirit of Mercury. While I adore Asenath Mason’s literature, I feel that she very much oversimplified Mesphito in more ways than by her mere avoidance of Mesphito’s other Qliphothic and other planetary attribution. She focused far more heavily on fictitious renditions of the story of Faust than the depictions of Mesphito within the grimoires, and when she did address the spirit’s description in grimoiric demonology she focused entirely on the medieval tradition, neglecting the wonderful yet admittedly sparse insights into Mesphito provided by modern black magickians such as J. Thorp.

Nonetheless, I am pressed to agree with Mason’s attribution to the Mercurial Qlipha and the planet of Mercury itself.

Two of the three animal forms which Mephistophiles takes in the grimoires I’ve read (modern and old alike), which forms include a toad, a bear, and a dog, are symbols of Ophiel, the Olympic Spirit of Mercury. A medieval grimoire’s description of Mesphito as a bald man in a black cape seemed, in my opinion, reminiscient of a recorded appearance of Ophiel as a man in a black cloak. The medieval-grimoiric description of Mesphito as an approachable, youthful man lines up with the appearance of the Greek God of Mercury. Moreover, the magickal powers of Mephistophiles provided in the medieval grimoires completely match the powers given to those two entities of Mercury.

One of the speculative etymologies of Megastophiles and Mephistophiel, two of Mesphito’s names in the grimoires, is “Megist Ophiel” or “the Great Ophiel.” This interpretation makes far more sense than the unfortunately more common comparison of the name Mephistophiles to “Mephitis,” the name of a goddess who rules over stench.

In conclusion, Mesphito is a divinity of Mercury both inside and outside of Qliphothic sorcery. In contrast, while Mesphito is attributed to Jupiter by a medieval grimoire unrelated to Qabbalah, he has no recorded attribution to the Qlipha of Jupiter in grimoires which incorporate Qabbalah.

A demon’s attribution to Qliphothic planetary spheres usually does not match their attribution to planets outside of Qabbalah. For example, while Amducious and Vassago are both attributed to Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/Moloch & Satan), neither of them are attributed to Pluto outside of the Qliphoth. The only two demons I can think of who are attributed to the Qliphothic spheres of planets that they are attributed to outside of the Qliphoth are Buer an Glasyalabolas. Interestingly enough, Buer and Glasyalabolas are both attributed to Samael (Mercury/Adrammelech). We might be building evidence of a trend.

Update: I decided to find out once and for all whether Ophiel and Mephistophiles were the same entity. I channeled the gnosis that the two spirits were indeed the same, and publicly requested that other black magickians seek their own gnosis regarding the matter and get back to me. My gnosis that Ophiel = Mesphito, being a confirmation of scholarly speculation, was confirmed by three other witches who didn’t know my opinion on the matter.

Mephistophiles and Jupiter

While it has been easy for me to draw much meaning from Mesphito’s attributions to the Qliphothic Spheres of Mercury and the Black Sun, I was at a loss as to what meaning I could draw from his non-Qliphothic planetary attribution to Jupiter, but the very first article I read about Jupiter easily reconciles Mesphito’s attribution to both it and the Sphere of the Black Sun. The article calls Jupiter “the elder king, giving way to the new solar king” and “a Sun that has never ignited” which “radiates not physical light, but the spiritual light of illumination.” Jupiter, like the Sphere of the Black Sun, is attributed to both the guru and the inner teacher.

Since Mesphito usually described as one of the highest authorities of the Infernal Divine, and since he is renowned for being really fucking powerful and really fucking nice, it makes sense for him to be attributed to Jupiter, and as far as non-Qliphothic planetary attributions go, Jupiter is as good of an equivalent of the mixture of the influences of the Mercurial and Black-Solar Qliphas as I can think of.

Mephistophiles and Baphomet

In Path of Satan, Mesphito is attributed to the seventh letter of “the infernal alphabet,” being K. Apollo is attributed to the seventh Greek letter, Epsilon. Epsilon is attributed to Mercury, and K corresponds to the Hebrew letter Kaf, being the source of the K in magick– a symbol of the Great Work attributed to Mercury. K, as Mesphito is attributed to it, is both 7 and 8, lending 15 (the fifteenth tarot card, the Devil) and 56, a number of the Great Work.

The Baphomet of Eliphas Levi, being the model for the Devil as depicted in Atu XV, is also known as Octinomos insofar as (s)he is a symbol of the Great Work. The numbers of Atu XV and Octinomos add and multiply to give us 23 and 120 again, equating Mesphito to the Goat of Mendes in terms of alchemical signification. Despite Baphomet’s attribution to Mercury, it is believed that the state of adepthood illustrated by Baphomet is attained in the Sphere of the Sun, so it can be said that Mesphito represents the black magickal equivalent of this same attainment.

Mephistophiles, Lucifuge, and Lucifer

Lucifer, who is attributed to Venus and the Sun (he has no known attribution in the Qliphoth), is considered the counterpart of Mesphito. This makes a degree of sense, keeping in mind that Saturn is the quintessential Diabolic force of astrology. The nature of Saturn is reflected in Venus Inversus, the black aspect of Venus, and the Saturnian Qlipha is the top of the Qliphoth’s left column, of which collumn the Mercurial Qlipha forms the base. Lucifer’s other counterpart, Lucifuge, may be a counterpart to Mesphito as well.

Lucifuge and Mesphito are the two great grimoiric initiators. The Qliphothic hierarchy used by the modern Black Lodge attributes Lucifuge to the Saturnian Qlipha, but a lesser-known hierarchy exists which assigns Lucifuge to leadership over the Sphere of the Black Sun.**** Lucifuge, being attributed to leadership of the Qliphothic Spheres of Saturn and the Black Sun, represents a far more advanced initiation than Mesphito, being identified as an emissary of the Qliphothic Spheres of Mercury and the Black Sun. However, both of them are, in terms of Qliphothic influence, a mixture of the Black-Solar Qlipha with the Pillar of Severity, so the fact that they play identical roles to one another in many medieval grimories makes a lot of sense.

****The hierarchy which attributes Lucifuge to Thagirion attributes Eisheth Zenunim to the Saturnian Qlipha. A modern Demonolater by the name of T.B. Scott has attributed Eisheth Zennunim to Thagirion, intimating a great similarity between the two Qliphas. Since the Qliphas of the Black Earth and Black Moon are both related to Lilith, whose true throne is in the Saturnian Qlipha, it makes sense for Thagirion to have a connection to Saturn as well).
