Sigil of Baphomet



(See Devices Used in a Satanic Ritual by clicking here
for detailed instructions.)

  1. Dress for ritual.
  2. Assemble devices for ritual; light candles and shut out all outside light sources; place parchments to right and left of the altar as indicated.
  3. If a woman is used as the altar she now takes her position - head pointing south, feet pointing north.
  4. Purification of the air by ringing of the bell.
  5. "Invocation to Satan" and "Infernal Names" which follow (see Book of Leviathan) are now read aloud by priest. Participants will repeat each Infernal Name after it has been said by priest.
  6. Drink from chalice.
  7. Turning counter-clockwise, the priest points with the sword to each cardinal point of the compass and calls forth the respective Princes of Hell: Satan from the south, Lucifer from the east, Belial from the north, and Leviathan from the west.
  8. Perform benediction with the phallus (if one is used).
  9. Priest reads aloud appropriate invocation for respective ceremony: Lust, Compassion, or Destruction (see Book of Leviathan).
  10. In the case of a personalized ritual this step is extremely important. Solitude is compatible with the expressing of the most secret desires, and no attempt to "hold back" should be made in the acting out, verbalizing, or casting of images pertaining to your desires. It is at this step that your "blueprint" is drawn, wrapped, and sent off to the recipient of your working.


    To Summon One For Lustful Purpose Or Establish
    A Sexually Gratifying Situation

    Leave the area of the altar and remove yourself to that place, either in the same room or without, that will be most conducive to the working of the respective ritual. Then, fashion whatever imagery you possibly can that will parallel in as exact a way possible the situation towards which you strive. Remember, you have five senses to utilize, so do not feel you must limit your imagery to one. Here are devices that may be employed (either alone, or in any combination):

    1. graphic imagery such as drawings, paintings, etc.
    2. written imagery such as stories, plays, descriptions of desires and eventual outcome of same.
    3. acting out the desire in tableau or playet, either as yourself or portraying the role of the object of your desire (transference), using any devices necessary to intensify imagery.
    4. any odors relative to the desired person or situation.
    5. any sounds or background noises conducive to a strong image.

    Intense sexual feeling should accompany this step of the ritual, and after sufficient imagery is obtained, as strong an orgasm as is possible should serve as climax to this step. This climax should be attained using any masturbatory or auto-erotic means necessary. After orgasm is obtained, return to the location of the altar and proceed with step #11.


    To Insure Help Or Success For One Who Has Your
    Sympathy Or Compassion (Including Yourself)

    Remain in close proximity of the altar and with as vivid a mental image as possible of the person you wish to help (or intense self-pity), state your desire in your own terms. Should your emotions be genuine enough, they will be accompanied the shedding of tears, which should be allowed to flow without restraint. After this exercise in sentiment is completed, proceed to step #11.


    To Cause The Destruction Of An Enemy

    Remain in the area of the altar unless imagery is more easily obtained in another spot, such as in the vicinity of the victim. Producing the image of the victim, proceed to inflict the destruction upon the effigy in the manner of your choice. This can be done in the following ways:

    1. the sticking of pins or nails into a doll representing your victim; the doll may be cloth, wax, wood, vegetable matter, etc.
    2. the creation of graphic imagery depicting the method of your victim's destruction; drawings, paintings, etc.
    3. the creation of a vivid literary description of your victim's ultimate end.
    4. a detailed soliloquy directed at the intended victim, describing his torments and annihilation.
    5. mutilation, injury, infliction of pain or illness by proxy using any other means or devices desired.

    Intense, calculated hatred and disdain should accompany this step of the ceremony, and no attempt should be made to stop this step until the expended energy results in a state of relative exhaustion on the part of the magician. When the exhastion ensues, proceed to step #11.

  11. (a) If requests are written, they are now read aloud by the priest and then burned in the flames of the appropriate candle. "Shemhamforash!" and "Hail Satan!" is said after each request.
  12. (b) If requests are given verbally, participants (one at a time) now tell them to the priest. He then repeats in his own words (those which are most emotionally stimulating to him) the request. "Shemhamforash!" and "Hail Satan!" is said after each request.
  13. Appropriate Enochian Key is now read by the priest, as evidence of the participants' allegiance to the Powers of Darkness.
  14. Ringing of the bell as pollutionary, and then the words "SO IT IS DONE" are spoken by the priest.
