Satanism / What has Satanism done for your life?
« on: May 25, 2018, 03:23:15 am »
Today someone asked me "And how did that turn out for you? What good has he done for you?" in reference to me being a Satanist. I gave my answer, best I could at the time.


So I ask ya'll as well, what has Satanism done for your life?

Lounge / Naming Satanic kittens 2.0
« on: May 22, 2018, 06:19:25 am »
Artemis just had 5 kittens. Perfectly pentagram numbered.

What should I name them? Last year We had Artemis and Apollo (which I kept), and Mercury and Prometheus which my sister named and my mom adopted (Mercury sadly passed away around 5 months old)

And yes yes I'm getting them all fixed. I wasn't able to afford to get momma and all kittens fixed before but with the new job i'm more than able to now it's just I got it after she was well into the pregnancy lol. Besides I've lived with as much as 11 cats and 4 dogs at the same time growing up so this is easy compared to that lol

In any case... I don't like to use names like Samael or whatever if it's a name i invoke. Nothing is weirder than a kitty meowing at the door or running over when you are doing a ritual lol. I'm thinking maybe Goetia demon names or something.

I plan on keeping all of them this time as well.

Lol I really am a cat lady now xD

Satanism / Do you show adoration for Satan?
« on: May 22, 2018, 02:31:19 am »
I know it's often said that most Satanists don't "worship' Satan but I think we all do something that is some kind of expression of, well, liking the dude/thing/force/ect As I developed my system over the years, I found myself doing things simply to express my love of Satan, sometimes in a submissive kind of way.

I don't think that Satan requires that one 'worship' him but for me personally I've found my practice enriched by doing so purely out of choice. Perhaps some see that as somewhat masochistic but whatever it is it's worked for me. Maybe it's because I'm into BDSM or something, dunno. I just don't mind it is all.


Does anyone know what I'm talking about, can anyone relate to what I'm saying?

Satanism / If any, what deities exist?
« on: May 22, 2018, 01:52:39 am »
A simple question about what you believe. This is directed specifically at people who identify as Satanists.


If we say we believe in Satan as a real being, do other deities exist too? Shiva? Apollo? Yahweh? Yeshua? Odin? Isis? Pluto? ect


I have mixed feeling on it, on one hand as Hindu it's hard for me to dismiss the existence of any deity, and yet I feel as a Satanist that some deities might not really exist outside of those who believe in them as many other deities may. It's complicated, to say the least lol.

To you, is Satan just one of many, or is it/he "the" God? What is the nature of his existence if he is more than just an archetype or symbol? My views are a mix of pantheism and polytheism on the subject.

Can an archetype and symbol also be reconciled with an entity/force/ect that exists outside of the Satanist? I think it can, as i think these archetypes manifest in us as Satan does on many levels.

If you think Satan is real, how does it/he interact with any other deities, if they also exist? I personally have no answer to this last one. I simply don't know enough to really say with certainty.

If an ineffably powerful being came down and in whatever way proved beyond a doubt that they were the "Satan" of Christianity and wanted your allegiance in war against Yahweh and the heavens, would you join him?


This isn't to suppose that Christian cosmology is wholly or even mostly correct (which it isn't), but just enough for this scenario to work. Is there a line where you wouldn't follow him? If so where is that line?

General LHP Discussion / we are blocked in some places lol
« on: May 10, 2018, 01:18:27 am »

Some other Satanist, LHP sites are not blocked but I kinda got a laugh out of this. I've asked Hardee's Facebook page about if store owners are allowed to block certain stuff on religious basis or not and still waiting for a reply.

Somewhere, there is a huge list of "occult and cult" sites and we are on it. xD

In any case, it's in a public space since they invite the public in and they only let you use the wifi if you pay for food which I did. It's part of their business model and part of the service they give to the public. We know they can' deny someone service on the basis of religion or race or whatever, but I dunno about wifi.

Worth mentioning, but I wouldn't of went in other than there was Wifi, I did purchase things because I figured I might as well get something to eat. It's part of their business model to attract people in. It's not a "free" service, since it's part of their strategy to make more money. If a movie theater gave out popcorn to movie goers with no extra charge, should they be allowed to deny popcorn on the basis of race or religion? I'd think not.

Probably though just some blanket thing to cover horror movie type stuff but who knows. Not like I couldn't get around it with a VPN but it's the principle of the matter, you know?

Journals / Kapalika's rambings and blog
« on: May 07, 2018, 07:26:47 am »
Onyx kept saying I should make a topic for this so I did :p


As many of you know, it's at https://Kapalika.com


Here's my latest work: https://kapalika.com/blog/bhakti-poem-2/


It's a poem I adapted from an unreleased song of mine that I never quite finished all the writing and recording (although most of it's done).


I'll try to keep this topic updated. Honestly lately I've wanted to reach into my backlog of posts I thought could be cleaned up and vetted for making into articles on my site. I might get around to that relatively soon to feed a stream of new content.


Also, if you know of any good communities or sites, I might link them on my main menu bar if I check them out and like them. So far I'm only putting the sites of whom I know the owner personally in some capacity. The OS is currently in that menu along with Venus Satanas' site.

General LHP Discussion / Are we occult?
« on: May 02, 2018, 12:30:25 pm »
This is more of a simple question, than anything. Not looking to get super philosophical more so just what you associate the words with.


Do you consider Satanism, Setianism, Luciferianism, this community, ect, occult?


More generally, what do you consider occultism? What do you think is often called occult but isn't?

General LHP Discussion / Direction of this community?
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:08:49 am »
I'm curious what direction everyone sees this community going to, or even just wants to see it to go to.

I've considered being a member many times in the past but as I've understood it talking with a couple of members it's kind of still in an experimental stage and unsure of it's identity or at least presentation. Such a formal association is something I don't take lightly since it would reflect not just on me personally but also me professionally as a potentially permanent mark. For example there is an actual membership but it's basically just a hidden forum and working together on some writing projects, and the place is kind of an open anyone can come with their own beliefs but also some of the more vocal members put their own spins on what the order of the serpent "is".

I'm totally fine, personally, with simply an open forum and community, but even with just that, at the same time, I think it could be a much richer and more active community with some better branding so we can attract the kind of constructive people we want. I really like a lot of people here, both posters and actual members a couple of which I consider close friends.

In any case I want to see this place thrive because honestly it's one of the best active LHP forums on the net and I hope it stays that way. I'm a little worried of that status, as of late, since activity has been rather slow for at least 6 months and I don't want to see us become inactive. A while ago I got my friend Venus Satanas to put this site on her links page, and I've told people about this forum and gotten a few people to join the forum from my chatroom and other chatrooms I was in but it seems like the trend towards slow stays/continues.

Anyways, that's just my thoughts. I know some people like slower forums but I think there is a critical point where it's hurting activity and I think we have past that point. I'll continue to post here and support the community because of all the people I've grown to love but I do kinda worry about it's longevity.

edit; grammar

Music / My "essentials" recommended music
« on: April 26, 2018, 05:39:41 am »
So this has been something I've talked with a couple of members about for a while and I finally got around to doing it. It took a lot of thought but I hope people will like it, got's a lot of musical styles in it. Lots of Satan and the like in it too :D This is something that took a ton of thought but I think this is about as good as I'm going to get it. There's other genres I adore but it didn't fit the flow as much.

https://kapalika.com/blog/recommended-essential-music-1/

Nine tracks from nine different musical acts in the playlist, including a detailed explanation of why I choose each track and what I like about it and/or what of it's influenced me. A bit' of something for everyone.

2. Mood Deluxe
3. Man With No Name
4. S.U.N. Projet
5. Hocico

General LHP Discussion / You don't have to do anything
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:46:33 am »
Enjoy, or not, if you feel like it lol


https://kapalika.com/blog/you-dont-have-to-do-anything/


Just so no one skimming makes assumptions, no this isn't a "Satanism is do whatever you want!" kind of post, at least not in the typical sense. Or at least I don't think. I don't know, you judge. It's also a lot more than that. Part story, part ramble, part advice, part philosophy.


Anyways let me know what you think. I thought ya'll might appreciate it. Not my usual blogging style and very unfiltered but I think that's good to make the point.

Satanism / making a list of notable Satanist organizations/sects
« on: April 07, 2018, 05:41:38 pm »
So I was bored and watching youtube and came across this video where a rather ignorant Satanist claimed that Satan is latin and then said they were quoting the nine satanic statements but instead quoted the first of the Satanic Temple's Tenets.  :facepalm:


In recent years I've seen people in public discourse discuss Satanism a lot more but it's always getting conflated with so many other sects of Satanism and this all has gotten me very irked. I want to make a video or something breaking it down with some graphs or some shit and talking ect doing a quick rundown of wtf is what.


With that said, I'm trying to gather a list of notable sects/groups. I used to have one long ago, but lost it. haha. So if anyone wants to help me with this... this is what I got so far:


symbolic satanists (non-specific/not TST or CoS)
Church of Satan
Temple of Set (at first?)
First Church of Satan
The Satanic Temple
Henotheistic Satanists
Pantheistic Satanists
spiritual satanists (part of henotheism?)
ONA/crazy far right fuckers (nazi or racial groups ect)
sect of the horned god


I know there is a few theistic organizations i could mention but I can't ever keep up with what ones are defunct. These are just the ones off the top of my head. I'll update and clean up the the formatting as I think of more. Feel free to suggest anything you think is notable either as a broad category or a specific organization


EDit: Almost forgot, but since I was making the list I also thought I might be able to clean it up and expand it even more as some kind of index of sorts. Dunno. Made this topic on a whim.

General LHP Discussion / Meditating in graveyards
« on: April 05, 2018, 02:19:50 pm »
This is something I've wanted to do more of; there is a good selection of graveyards near where I live but there always seems to be a decent amount of activity around them.


The fear isn't about distraction, it's about avoiding questions, prying eyes ect. It's entirely possible to get in trouble for doing rituals or meditations in graveyards or at least come across a very upset family member. I'm not saying or suggesting I or anyone else has or should do anything illegal, although if you are there at night depending on where you live you may be trespassing.

I have some experience with meditating in graveyards, including a time or two where I was doing it quasi Aghori style (as much as legally possible!) with profound results.

I wonder if anyone else has meditated in graveyards. I've felt a pull to meditate more on, and be more involved with death and decay. This has been something brewing for a while. Meditating in graveyards I want to be a part of what I'm planning to do (the other involving a new altar dedicated to Kali).

At any rate, I plan to do a simple meditation tonight and will report back how it goes. Feel free to share any of your experiences or advice ect.

General LHP Discussion / Dreaming and magic
« on: March 29, 2018, 11:36:54 am »
Do you ever have insights or profound moments in dreams that have impacted your waking life, even your journey among the Left Hand Path?


Actually now that I can more or less trace back the beginnings of my LHP walk to some dreams.. Has anyone else had a similar experience where dreams can be a reflection of their journey, even a guide for it at times? I think it can be useful, assuming it aligns with reason/theology/ect, as opposed to rationalization, but then maybe we can think we are doing the former but dong the latter. So there is always a lot to consider when consulting with an irrational and highly symbolic part of our psyche.


There is more I could say to expand on this, including lucid dreaming... I've done a lot of "dream magic" that's crept into the waking world so to speak in my time. I'm mostly curious how typical my experiences are or are not among the magically inclined. The exact nature of my experiences are rather personal but I will share what I feel comfortable with in comparing and contrasting as people respond :)


Now I got Astral Projection's "Still Dreaming" stuck in my head (off of their 1996 Trust in Trance Album) lol.





Also on a more scientific note, it seems that self reflection and lucid dreaming might be linked, which seems obvious to me but there is evidence for it now:
