ritual procedures 101 | Forum

Jun 10 '20


I have spent some time digging through the internet and even this forum to no avail about standard ritual procedures concerning Satanism so I am in hopes that some of you can help me out....

I am a 3rd degree Wiccan Priest - in my private practice I conform to a lot of general Wiccan protocols concerning ritual procedures - for a quick but semi thorough example: 

I first sweep the room of any past negativity or lingering elements with a besom chant - after that I sage a space to cleans it - after that I dragons blood a room to charge it - after that I cast a circle - after that I call the quarters (the directionals and the elements ie: north/air - south/fire etc - after that I invite deities - after that I invoke the altar ie: light candles - incense - etc - after that I state my intent - after that I do any of a number of things to raise energy such as chant - music - dance - after that I raise the cone of power and send my intent - after that I make offerings and/or sacrifice - after that I have communion - after that I have meditation/praise/reflection period - after that I then go about closing all the procedures I just named....

is there any protocol for Satanic ritual procedures? I know all practices vary - but is there some basics? I can't seem to find any information about this topic anywhere so advanced thanXies for any insight....

That depends on the source. LaVey satanic rituals does include some traditional things like ringing the bell turning counter-clockwise , colored candles , chalice , daggers etc. But he also does state that these things in and of themselves do not possess any inherent magical powers. They are used to condition the magician as a sort of exercise to help him suspend belief and get him in the state of mind most conducive for a magical working. 

Different ' types ' of  ' Satanists ' will have a different way of doing this according to their source and their particular imaginary friends. Those of us that see no need for this type of fantasy tend to dismiss it all as nonsense. 

You mentioned sir you could not find on the web or this network anything about satanic rituals to help with your original question .... here is a free PDF of Anton LaVey ' Satanic Rituals ' . I believe there is also one in my PDF library but it may no longer be a valid link. As of right now this one works..  Also the last half of ' the Satanic Bible ' by LaVey is almost entirely about ritual and magic. That would be a good source to and the Satanic Bible has several PDF free copies on google also in the PDF library here.

I think you know more than I do, but I use Scott Cunningham's literature as reference for my rituals, also whatever I have available to me like for instance candles, paper, plants, symbolic action. . .

I'm not sure why anyone would dismiss the entire traditions/procedures/rituals of magik as "fantasy" and "nonsense" - although it does help "condition the magikian" it is more about honoring their "imaginary friends" - certainly Satan isn't the sole entity in existence -  but hey I appreciate the links/references...

well versed with Cunningham - I am very well read - and thanX for sharing your methodology....

I did magic here at this very site. 

Through my very presence and like some candles and shit I have made posting here as appealing as a Bloodhound Gang album for female posters. 

I should probably apologize to all the strait guys for doing that. 

It was the ritual of "This bitch better not be calling me her doggy That better be for the programner dude they're getting! Fuck this ambiguous trick! I am going to assume that is for me and torture this bitch regardless!"

Guilty for playing like religious cunts that want leaps of spiritual bullshit, and the everpresent assumption I am that important. 


So I took some candles and shit and it was "Sin SIN tres sala bim"! Lo and behold they became apathetic, stopped giving a fuck, and I am now all that remains. To reign over'th the special domain.

  And also become bitter the closest thing to an answer was a pear shaped doppelganger waddling through a welfare parking lot. And now I just use other people's topic to talk that situation endlessly...  because she is a creepy stalker bitch that will read it.  

So that's probably why there are only gay dudes left.

Greetings! I too come from a background in traditional Craft (2* Gardnerian)w. Quick answer aa far as satanic ritual magic goes I would advise you to read The Satanic Bible by Anton Lavey and The Devil's Tome by Shiva Honey. Both works provide good examples on how you can build your own satanic ritual practice.

Rituals in general have a rather traditional root. Just ignorant people who can't explain things, everything that happens around them. But, this is a very long tale, since still there's an awful lot of people who doesn't know what is happening around them. So, they're keeping up with their rituals, since they're not sure about what's happening.

Due to the fact that the old movie Idiocracy has prophetically come true, I think we should make it standard procedure here to respond to posts with youtube videos that are simple and easy to understand, rather than write out things. I fear the gentry lack adequate and/or basic reading comprehension skills.

Although I don't engage in this sort of behavior any longer, and while I would assume this common knowledge to many, Liber 777 is one quick and dirty way to construct a conventional type ritual.

There would not be any step-by-step procedure specific to Satanism, but I don't see why one could not be tailored to that end via the plethora of correspondences contained within.

In my experience, the most important part of any ritual(conventional or otherwise), has been, and always will be, the proper entheogen.

are you really into rituals, or just joking? you just got a grasp. I bet you're just a joke. that is not a ritual, you're making fun of it, and that's what you get. Funny replies.

   THE ELEMENTS. there's no elements. there's just a pack of demons. you want 4? OK. North, South, East and West, if they have a compass. Then you have the circle. Too confusing if you have four deities, you'd better have a parallelogram. 

   Then it's the candles. One candle per deity, because you don't want them to fight each other over who has got the more candles! And there's still something missing. The big D.

   From the very darkest corners of the earth, there is a madman who distorts the lines, changes the square scheme into what would fit into a circle.

I have to be careful in my choice of words here, but I just hop in the car late at night, listen to some good music while randomly driving to remote places and call it a ritual.

Neo pagan ritual, shamanism, a little of this and a little of that.
