Many new and also those who are seasoned upon the Devil’s Path come to me in question if they are “doing it right” My reply for everyone is the same; Satan called to you to walk His path, don’t doubt yourself. Trust Satan, and trust your intuition He, is guiding it. Listen to the message that Satan has uniquely for you. It is fine to take inspiration from others and to learn all that you can from all sources which you feel pulled towards. But know that not everything is meant to be incorporated into your Satanic practice and never allow yourself to be pulled into the trapping of someone else’s practice. Never allow anyone to dictate how you should practice your Satanism or how you should view Satan. That is strictly up to you to decide, it is between you and Satan. When in doubt, spend time at Satan’s altar and pray, meditate or simply just speak out to Satan and ask His guidance. Satan will let you know how He wishes for you to connect with Him. Satan will guide you through your intuition, put thoughts in your mind through your dreams, or while in meditation. You might just have a strong sense of knowing.
Your connection and communication with Satan are personal unto you. Know that as a devotee of Satanas, that He is always with you, even when you are engaging in mundane actions in the profane world. You can speak to Satan whenever you feel the need, anywhere at any time. If you are in a place where verbalizing your words to Satan is not possible due to lack of privacy or whatever the reason, just speak to Him through your mind. Satan knows your mind and what’s in your heart. If you are a sincere devotee of the Devil, if you are sincere in your practice, that’s all that matters, there is no wrong way you can connect.
As a Theistic Satanist, you don’t need to join any groups or organizations. Satanists are not conformists, we do not follow any herd even if it’s under the LHP umbrella. My advice to anyone who feels the need to share their Satanism, their experiences with those of like mind, is to find colleagues and allies, the small the number the more honest and less drama-free these interactions will be. Know that if you have to pay money to lend your time to another just so that you can learn from what they have to share online or so that they will acknowledge your existence, then this is not worth your time or effort. Such people or groups do not care about you, only what you are paying into their cause. They do not value your worth nor care about how you connect with Satan. By, lending personal time, energy, and resources to such causes in hopes to learn Satanism or Satanic magick, is taking you further away from your unique connection with Satan and your practice of Satanism rather than help it to grow stronger. You end up feeding into someone else’s practice helping them to grow and also to connect more with their desires. Do your research rather than trusting what someone else might be teaching and incorporate into your practice what resonates with you and leave the rest. Know also that you do not have to practice any form of magick to be a Satanist. Theistic Satanism concern is devotion and worship of Satan, nothing more. Only some upon this path are magical practitioners. Don’t feel you have to conduct elaborate rituals and perform curses etc.. such can be incorporated into one’s Satanic practice but it is not necessary nor by origin is it a part of Theistic Satanism.
If you’re a Satanist, you are not a follower nor would you help feed another’s practice and resources over your own-Think about it. Find those few who you can freely share with and learn from while engaging socially online or off, without any loss of your time or resources, monetary or other. You felt drawn towards Theistic Satanism for a reason, Satan chose to reach out to you, you accepted and responded to His call. Trust in that and be your authentic Satanic self. Satan will not lead you astray so don’t allow self-doubt to lead you astray and running after pipe dreams.
