First of all my english is not very correct but I would like to ask this question:

Is it acceptable in Satanism to have few rituals outside of the ritual chamber to focus our will on the archetype of Satan ?

That could not be considered a form of worship of an external deity but the worship of our own ego. That could be the recitation of some words like the Hymn to Satan written by Carducci or Les litanies de Satan by Baudelaire or an extract of The Satanic Rituals by Dr. LaVey.

Thank you in advance.

What is the goal you are trying to achieve?

I think it's more about « elevate the self » like the Dr. LaVey said rather than accomplish a specific goal. Every day I must achieve some things, I reserve a really Satanic ritual for the most important thing in my life, and that is me; no one or nothing else.

I could said that such a recitation, like « recitals » in The Satanic Rituals p. 154, is to keep the consciousness of myself in the here and now.

Again I quote the words of Dr. LaVey in The Satanic Rituals p. 207: « Your faith (in the princples of Satanism) need only be outspokenly stated ».

It's a reminder of the god of my own universe as you and Magus Gimore talk about, behind my eyes.

What is your opinion Magister Nemo ?

Then what you are asking about is Greater Magic as ceremony for the purpose of acting as a reminder to yourself.

Then, to answer your original question it is simply a matter of finding what "reminders" work for you and in what context.
