Hi, I'm interested in the Black Mass and anyone's experiences, regarding a particular ritual (was your particular ritual, successful?)

Thanks,
Moon Shadow

If someone tells you their ritual was a success, how will you validate what is being said is factual and true?

Why not perform the ritual yourself and experience it yourself?

Beat Me to the punch Dear Magister.

Exactly. Test and verify. There is no other way to validate.

We could all be liars. How would you know?

My question to Moon Shadow is this:

Are you simply trying to find out how many rituals were successful before you get up the gumption to try one for yourself? (To see if it's worth the effort so to speak).

This is how it appears.

Do you have the Satanic Mass by Anton LaVey?
If not you can purchase it at the CoS Emporium.

As far as my personal experiences:
They're personal.

Not to mention that even those of us without access have all we need in The Satanic bible.

I was just thinking the same thing!

Do not forget that a Black Mass is also performed for the high symbolism it provides.

This is in a way a mockery, the individual showing that he is absolutely free from the 'superstitious white theater' with the theater way itself.

Once again, there is a lot of symbolism through it, and also the importance of the aesthetic a Satanist cherishes.

If you want to be pissy, he said "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in Me", quoting John Lennon, though he was talking about "isms" at the time (after a rant about not wanting to take a European Socialism test). Ahhh I loved that movie.

I never performed The Original Black Mass myself. Never saw a need to lampoon an organization that has never been a concern in my life. If I ever do perform a Black Mass, I'll probably target the Wiccans and their silliness.

Hi VictorWolf,

I was/I'm doubting pretty much everything in Wicca these days, though I've been a solitary Wiccan for 15 years!

I have pretty much a psychic ability and healing ability, so my desire to do healings was pretty much a motivating force for my desire to put my abilities into good use.

However, I've always wondered, casting circles, if it mattered personally to me at all.

Reading the Satanic Bible, it seems pretty much, that one could use psychic abilities to do a healing for someone if I desire (an innate ability).

I also have had a lot of PK happenings in my life. Fawcets that turned themselves on, and I was there to see it. I tried and couldn't get them to 'blast' like that! Some spiritual folks would say that it was a ghost of a departed family member, that goes around playing stunts like this to get someone's attention! Nonsense! I never have believed in spooks! It's just another PK event!

I wonder how 'psychic' ability fits into the Church of Satan? No ghosts for me!

Anyway, Wicca was never satisfying to me and I've read everything in that religion to become more acquainted with it and it has always forced me to question.

Also, the 'burning time' when Witches were burnt to death, historically, could not have exterminated the estimated population in the Middle Ages, lectures from historians have been recently given concerning this. After this lecture, I'd seen given to Witches, it just dumbfounded the audience.
And I must say, recently, their myths of the burning times, have changed the Wiccan community and that's when all my doubts have come into play. Religious myths.

Satanism, seems pretty much grounded in it's own historical legacy. Truth.

Well, VictorWolf, I wanted to say a few things about Wicca!
