I do not believe in excuses, but it has been known to work obviously or else Satanists would not still be practicing this method I assume?
I know it works for me
. There are other Satanists who feel the same way. Whether or not it works for other people is not my problem nor concern. If anybody feels the need to "prove" the results to others, or have other people's results proved to themselves, then in my view they've missed the point.
Also since it seems the method to use during a ritual seems to be cleared up, what about after? The Satanic Bible says to not think about results or the desire. And to not daydream or scheme, etc.
As LaVey said in one of his essays, and as I reiterated on the recent Greater Magic discussion on 9Sense
, it's rather like feeling indifferent about sex after you've just had it. It's not that after a ritual you're consciously forcing
yourself to no longer harbor the associated emotions. You can't really do that anyway; it's like the old saying "Don't think of a pink elephant
". You should simply feel like you've already gotten it out of your system. Otherwise, you're still holding on to something, which means you didn't really utilize the ritual session to your full potential.
we have been trying to figure out the proper way to do Satanic Rituals.
You've mentioned in other posts that you've done your own rituals before, right? So why over-analyze this? Just get into a room where you won't be interrupted, light some candles, put on some ambient music and other ritualistic trappings, and do it! There's nothing terribly elaborate about the "13 Steps". Going back to the sex analogy, if you're afraid of doing it for the first time because you want to wait until everything is absolutely perfect, then you're just setting yourself up for a let-down.
