NEW BOOK: Handbook of Exorcism and Deliverance!

It has been too long since my last book (How to Pray the Rosary and Get Results), and I am pleased to announce a new book is here!

The new book is titled Handbook of Exorcism and Deliverance, and it’s a book I’ve been meaning to write for some time!

In this book, I not only discuss some of my issues with both exorcists and new-school occultism, I also try to explain best practices when going about assembling your team, diagnosing the demonic, interviewing a potential energumen, investigating a case, the process of exorcism, and aftercare. To accentuate, I include stories of worst practices such as the ones below:

Finding Grace, Even Where the Church Forbids It

I’ve been quiet about this, but for the past six months I’ve been teaching a weekly “seminary course” with the goal of preparing candidates for ordination, and for a handful of laity who simply want to gain a deeper acquaintance with their faith.

In this week’s class, we talked about the doctrines of grace, of merit, and of “predestination.” The next morning, I woke up with several thoughts in my mind.

Directions, Elements, and Ritual Working

Elements - Isidorian - System

Chart of the Elements, Directions, and their Attributions from the Isidoro-Aligheran System, the successor and outgrowth of the Libri Artum method.

I just had a conversation asking about the direction the operator faces in the rituals in my books, and what to do if the room or temple is laid out so as to make inconvenient facing North or whichever other direction the rubrics indicate.

I explained it in terms of why I indicate facing those directions to begin with, and afterwards it seemed like a good idea to share with the rest of the world. So here we go!


The Origin of the System

New Additions to the .PDF Library!

Ordination - Front Cover

Hey everyone! You might notice I haven’t written a blog post since last June. That’s because two sites were stealing my content. One site (who looks like they stopped once I asked) has done so here and here.

The other site has stolen my content here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here. There were two other examples, but they’ve since been deleted from their website. Basically their M.O. is that once I write a blog post, it ends up not “shared” but copypasted to their site the next day, images, links, and all, with the only credit being a small “source link” at the bottom. I’m totally not cool with this, and that’s why I stopped writing blog posts.

Anyway, I’m not here to tell you the bad news. I’m here to tell you the good news, that I’m adding new content to the Free .PDF Library!

Seriously Bro, Thelema’s Just Another Form of Christianity!

Some days you encounter stupid on the internet, and other days you deal with straight-up retarded!

Case in point, this week in the Church of Ophiel group on Facebook, one of the members (Naomi, a wonderful woman) asks whether it’s a sin if one acts in ignorance. She asks a very fair question, and comments give answers running the gamut from Catholicism, Orthodoxy, Protestantism, and everything in between.

So far, so good. Until one person calling himself “Frater” followed by some Latin that could only come from Google Translate, posts: “The word of sin is restriction.” After which, he receives questions and expounds on Thelema in the replies to his comment.

Thus far, whatever. First Amendment and all that. Until Frater Abdiel (whom I’ve mentioned in the post about St. Uriel) points out the group’s rules to him. Sadly the entire exchange was deleted before I could make a screencap, so I’m doing this from memory.

Frater Abdiel: “This group’s rules state it’s a Christian group, and Thelema is off-topic.”

Frater Google Translate: “Thelema is derived from the Golden Dawn. The GD is Rosicrucianism. Rosicrucianism is esoteric Christianity. Therefore Thelema is Christianity.”

My first reaction was WHAT. THE. EVER. LIVING. F*CK.

And then I started laughing. This is one of the most ridiculous claims I’ve ever heard!


Why Is This Claim Ridiculous?

Well, I’m glad you asked!

Oh, wait a minute. You didn’t ask? Well that’s too bad, because I’m about to tell you anyway! Continue reading

Blood, Fear, and Pain: Tenth Anniversary Edition

PIC-00170

Today is the 10-year anniversary of one of my two greatest magical works ever. A work that took its origin in blood, pain, and fear, and ultimately manifested one of the basis-points for my current life.

Yep, I’m talking about the head-on car accident that happened on Mother’s Day of 2009, when some 17-year old out of Bexley smashed right into me with her daddy’s SUV.

My poor, ancient Chevy took that pounding, and by all rights I should be a dead man. Yet by some miracle, the back of my seat broke and sent me flying to the back of the van, out of St. Azrael’s grasp. Continue reading
